Lifesavas

Lifesavas - Hellohihey

rate me

[CHORUS]

I'll keep this brief it's nice to meet you

Though I can't get past your ego

I never hold a grudge cause love is the way

Hello hi hey...anyway

When we do talk then I get sucked into

Introductions to your ego

You're rubbing me the wrong way

Hello hi hey...anyway

[VERSE 1: Vursatyl]

Hey yo peace Vursatyl

Hey what's up dude

Yo my name is Brian but my MC name is Catapult (oh word?)

Word my crew is called the Cannibals (ah cool)

Yeah we're 30 deep and each member's a mutant culmination of six animals

See each MC is simultaneously (okay) six creatures, that's six styles with six features

Man we're the wild kingdom of hip hop...

Okay! Hey! It's nice to meet you but I'm just about to go on stage...

Right, well, speaking of stages we're the latest phase in hip hop

And I mean face it..hip hop sucks without us

And we're the best that bust and best at touching the mic

I mean I like how y'all do (thank you)

But we on some new next level complexity, tarzan telepathy, organic especially

Me see I'm kinda like the leader..

Damn, I wasn't knowin!

Well, you sleepin on a heater..

Nah, I ain't never been the type to sleep...

Me either!

And that reminds me, we just recorded 90 new treats (uh huh)

Our 15 CD box set is finally complete (whoa..)

And did I fail to mention also I do beats on my Playstation 2

And I've comprised the hi-fidelity medley supreme stream a heater beat you won't believe I'm even makin' mu...

Hold up cat, beats you makin for me?

No doubt, wait til you see!

Now why you doing that man?

C'mon Vurs, man you my favorite MC, next to me

Cause these MCs are losers! (crumbs!)

They just some wannabe bunch of me broken boosers (bums!)

Word that's true and even my crew

The truth is without me those dudes are borderline useless

Which brings me to my solo LP, my new website, my summer tour (wow)

My cameos and collaborations with some obscure artists.. (shh..)

It's hard to harness this much talent (yeah I'll bet)

C'mon Vurs man you should know you're a vet

And by the way when's the next time y'all playin?

Well besides tonight I think it's uh...

Uh huh right like I was sayin

I'm nice and if you got some advice on points I'm missin my ears are open

Alright listen..

[CHORUS]

[VERSE 2: Vursatyl]

None of this is concocted

It's not pretend

Honest depictions of what I comprehend as a parent arrogant

And I've got a friend that sometimes get's into (phone rings)...hold up this might be him

Hello?

Hi is Erb there?

This him

Hey what's up with you bro?

Loungin man

Long time no hear from

Yeah I know

Man I just flew in last night

I caught y'all show

I could of had that slot but they was fakin on the dough

Word?

Yeah they fronted

Well we just wanna get heard

Well yeah y'all should settle

I keep forgetting y'all ain't on my level

And so many are not quite

The MC that I am I guess it's lonely at the top right? (well, yeah I guess)

Man it's hard being the best

These MCs get pissed cause next to me they almost don't exist

No diss but who can really say that they've gone where I've gone

Or play where I've played

Or that they've done what I've done

Stay where I've stayed

Sold what I've sold

And done close

Yeah the nerve of some folks

Yeah and even y'all can't compare

Y'all startin to swell

But a cameo from me would really boast your record sales

Mm...well we kinda tryin to build with these cats from round the way

Man don't tell me that you feel them paperweight so-called rhymers I can make or break

Hold me, eternal gratitude, show me respect

And ask any record store

People might buy your album but it's really me that they checkin for

I've seen it once or a hundred times

[phone rings...]

Hold up folks I got somebody on the other line

[CHORUS REPRISE]

Though we're good friends it never ends

Your self destructive massive ego

I never hold a grudge cause love is the way

Hello hi hey...anyway

You've gone too far

It's just the way you are

Hope that doesn't scar your ego

You're rubbing me the wrong way

Hello hi hey..anyway

[VERSE 3: Vursatyl]

Vur-sa-tyl

I must be tired I'm hearing voices

It's me Vurs the one who interferes in your choices

Wait, who are you?

Now see there that's the treat

I've been known as arrogant

To sometimes conceit

Self-absorbed, self-centered

I'm cocky, vein

Stuck up, proud, pompous, other vulgar names

I'm closely associated to fame and success (alright)

But I'm a part of everybody's thoughts more or less

I'm just confidence misconstrued as something evil

Alright get to the point man...who are you?

Your ego

Nah I play the humble (true)

I watch my words close

My rep proceeds me

You never heard Erb boast

Hold it

Need I remind you of the clever

Kid rhyming backstage in your ear forever?

Yeah, so?

And what about the call from your friend?

Who was kinda jaded, kinda dissed you at the end?

Now what you getting at?

That was us

Us who?

Me and you

Man we were that kid Vurs

Nah man!

It's true!

I never sweat other rhymers!

I never diss my troopers!

Well that kid was our past

And that friend could be our future

Nah you got me twisted

Ego trips don't concern me!

Chill Vurs those we're just stages on your journey

I mean you are dope

Stop it man

[Vurs is hearing voices...]

I mean you're the best rapper

I mean really

Just think about it man

No one can touch you

I mean you're better than all the other MCs out there

Ahhhhhhhhh!!!

[CHORUS REPRISE 2]

How can this be?

I finally see

That it was me who had the ego

Please don't hold a grudge cause love is the way

Hello hi hey...anyway

Swallow my pride

Now that I'm wise

Sincerely I apologize

For rubbing you the wrong way

Hello hi hey...anyway

[OUTRO: DJ Rev Shines]

[scratches]

Hello hello hello hello hello

Hey hey hey hey hey

Hello hello hello hello hello

H-h-hey hey hey hey hey...
