HELL OF A RIDE (STUDIO) Lyrics

by Bo Burnham

[Hook]
We've had a hell of a ride
I said that it would take us to heaven
Well, I motherfucking lied
Now I'm crankin' up this shit to eleven
('leven, 'leven, 'leven)

Photosynthetical, I want 'em botanical
And I'm kind of theoretical
Quantum mechanical
Alphabetical, a word puritanical
Not a hypothetical
I rule tyrannical
Tyrannical-saurus-rex
Fuck the system
Solar plexus
A lone star Texas, yeah
Too smart to be sexist, hey

Slow it down; the shit's too quick
Fuck it. Stick with it
The kid is too sick to quit
Haters: suck my dick
Handle the candle, lick the wick
No, stop. Better than that
C'mon, "mail" definition, there's a letter in that
Spell "male" then repeat the second letter in that
If you got a girl, let her in that

I said I've got a green light, Jay Gatsby
You know leaking's just for maxi
Leak my tracks, they're tax-free
The way it should be if you ask me
Take this music
Choose it, use it, fuse it
Abuse it, lose it
Some of you like it sweet
But if it's just me, then B, let's ride the beat

Fuck it, get a bucket
My stomach is gonna upchuck
Texas ranger, no walker, get up, Chuck
Pixar's dicks are slick cause they fucked up
What? I only fuck up stuck up suck ups
Say this shit is crap
Write me off cause I'm a white kid, tryin' to rap
Because I'm willing to quit, I'm just gettin' the kill
Keep killin' this shit, oh

[Hook 2x]

Lyrical acrobat
This is the lyrical mathematician, the lyrical aftermath
Is it part due to the fact that rap's elastic addict acts dismissive?
Too smart to be dismissed
It's hard to miss the bist
Kids can't cut it but they try a wrist, shit
Got nothin' on me, I'm a nihilist

Come on, Bo, flow
Blow like the wind go
Flow like the wind blow
Blowin' out the window
Amnesia, I remember a window in Indonesia
Pleased to meet ya

I don't believe in Jesus
Please don't speed the cheese
It's, please, it's just what I believe
It's not Jesus. It's Jesus, right?
Not like it's Jeremiah Wright
Ugh, too tight, and it's makin' you fight
Like a knife in your wi-fi
Lord of the Rings, but I'm the Tolkien white guy
Too dense, federal minded
Ain't no brain, but she's single minded
Well, there's a rule among this song
But you're too dumb to find it, uh

[Hook 6x]

Daddy Yankee
Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow
Dembow bow bow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
