lyrics

Verse 1
AR:
It's 2011, we're riding musty subway cars
I expected rocket cars folding into mason jars
What a disappointment...
Call the national academy of science and make me an appointment
Cause ya'll got some explain' to do
The child in me is frustrated with you
Unless I've just been given the truncated view
The promised future utopia never came true.
I lived in a dream, awoke and came to
In a fucked up world where it's easiest to blame you
And I don't need a floating city in the clouds
If there's a home for everybody I don't care what rock we're chained to...
I wanna live in a world where Hungary is not a way people go to sleep, just a country
So forget the Star Trek replicator,
the microwave's fine for my late-night munchies.
 
Chorus 1
BS & AR:
 
Verse 2
BS:
Son, where's my teleporter?
and the TiVo in my brain to keep my thoughts in order?
At the arcade the future only cost a quarter
Little me had no idea Contra guns were 'round the corner
 
Thought by 2011 we'd build cities in the clouds
Family vacay's literally blasting off
Instead food's filled with things we can't pronounce
While kids who can't afford to eat dream of being astronauts
 
I knew 'bout solar power when I left my T-Rex in the sandbox at age 9
Thinking later on we'll try to bring him back to life
But when we run out of fossils to burn, I'll wish more dinosaurs died
 
I'd rather be a comet by far
Shoot for the moon, and hope I hit a star
If I get there I'll text you a postcard
'Til then --- I got 5 on the next one
 
Chorus 2
BS & AR:

about

Dollar Coffee Brooklyn, New York

A double-shot of hip-hop for the soul. A freshly brewed pot of body-rocking goodness. As if orchestrated by the gods of rhyme, the meeting of Brooklyn transplants BS and Albert Rhymestein was indeed the work of fate. Rooted in a mutual love for hip-hop, they began collaborating together in early 2010. Talk of a short EP quickly grew into Dollar Coffee and the debut full-length album "Nice Things". ... more
