Verse 1
My head's up in the sky it's higher than the clouds are
I like to look up at the stars and wonder how far
from what I hear about a billion babies are delivered every day and so it's like the planet is a clown car
I know it probably shouldn't work, but we all fit
Like a Mcy D's Playplace ballpit
So lookie me, I'm about to jump up in it swimming through syringes like a mothafuckin dolphin
I might have an outburst
There's a lot of freaky people on the planet and it makes me want to crowd surf
everybody everywhere dig downwards
it's what we work for
party at the earth's core!
I gon't where to go to go far
but if if I go, then I know I should go hard
And if I go and I never come back
Then I'll send a postcard
And a couple thumb tacks

Verse 2
teacher said this party started with a loud bang
the way my ears are ringing I don't hear a sound mang
i'm steady looking at the crowd like a proud dad
for coming out instead of clicking like a mouse pad
steal a bounce house, fill it full of helium
ride like a blimp because I think It'd be really fun
to do a triple flip in zero gravity while puffing on a philly blunt and shooting stars with a BB gun
Tonight I'll look at something that I've never seen before
And I might even pen graffitti on a meteor
I can reach it, homie veni vidi vicci it's all peachy got a vision of the future on a ouiga board
I didn't believe it, I
thought it CGI
Why don't you decide
if we're computerized?
assuming you and I alive
and tomorrow is the rapture
I wonder watcha wanna do tonight

Verse 3
I don't wanna I don't wanna I don't wanna
I don't I don't wanna end up as an anybody
Everybody is anybody
made of arteries and antibodies
and you never get to see confetti without getting bloody
If you read ahead you'll all be surprised
spoiler alert!
we're all gonna die
But I'll be hooping in that driveway in the clouds
Shooting fouls with that big orange ball in the sky
And when I die wanna say well I made it
And be way celebrated
and remain as a staple
If I stay hella faded
then I'll fade and my fate'll be the same as the fakers with the chains on the labels
it's a shame people do it for the fame and the cash and not the flame and the passion I train through the pain and I frame every passage as way to stay fit
Cause an 808 kick is my gatorade drink

Revisiting this old favorite leaves me with mixed emotions. To me, this is pure rapping gold. It's the fountain I drink from when I need to rejuvenate and revive my ears from the wear and tear of mind numbing main stream pop. But when I see the views.... Really? If quality was directly related to views, then this vid should have opa gangnam style numbers. Or is it my taste that sucks? Are the masses right? Is Justin Bieber a fantastic artist, and I've just failed to realize it? Yeah right. Seriously though... In my book, Watskys place is with the big boys. Right up there on the highest shelf within their different styles. Elvis. Bob Marley. David Bowie. Frank Zappa. George Watsky. That's how much his word flow means to me. Because when listening to oh so many other artists, my brain shuts off. Watsky, on the other hand, lights my brain right up. Only one other rapper/wordsmith comes close. And no, it is not Eminem. Zack Sherwin.

Watsky's 'Energy' song has more views than Drakes 'Energy' song. Good.
