Sex, Drugs And Self-Control
by John Reuben


oh man i donít want to brag/but my red pen writes real good raps/about to tear it up like arts and
crafts/speak for yourself if no one else will/brilliance wonít announce his brilliance/false humility didnít
know he was pretentious/choose your words wisely can i kick it/break bread and fellowship with cultural
critics/i wrote a song for the summer saved it for the winter/crayon glitter color in the big picture/so
simple man not a simpleton/we get by bare minimum/all i want is a little bit of land/house and a fam and
a number-one jam/to take over your stereo/imaginations captivated/party people motivated/donít make
it so complicated/pens and needles 48 bars to fill/sharpened pencils scribbling yes yaíll/writers block
bang my head against the wall/nothing good to say say nothing at all/i wrote a song for the
summer/saved it for the winter/crayon glitter color in the big picture/my friend everett he told me/donít
trust a man that cannot be/at the bottom of a joke/dig deep hide behind the mystique/angst finds
knowledge knowledge finds a scene/irrelevant religion pleads legitimacy/we chose not to take
ourselves too seriously/cluttered virtue fashion for simple truth/ideas first or the people they serve/keep
quiet while you learn/raise your voice if youíre sure/with enough authority to put it in a verse/
