Another mixtape made at The Space in South City, St. Louis, MO. All live sampling and rapping done by Rooster Jake Cohen. Big thanks to everyone who actually played instruments and came up with musical ideas for the OG Beets used for sampling.

if i coulda saw, i'd've swore he's alive
not certified, but that ain't alive
that's what it looks like when it ain't right inside

people ask questions, they want to know answers
1. live how you want
2. anxiety's cancer

anxiety in cities, anxiety in streets
i'm tired of anxiety, tired of the heat
i tried to repeat what i saw but i couldn't
you could take a walk over there but i wouldn't

i'm so skinny, i might snap in two
and i don't even know who i'm rappin to
but honey, i ain't really got no money
how bout a head start?
you could take off running

grrl, i don't need to be the geek in yr life
but i'll give you the best freakin week of yr life
and where the hell is Jeebus?
the meek are in strife
what's that smell?
i think there's a leak in the pipes
