The Best I Ever Had (Acoustic)
The Swellers
The Best I Ever Had (Acoustic)

It was a young and angry summer
A song that changed my mind
I heard it on the radio
And if everyone else heard this
They wouldn’t be so sad
It was the best I ever had
It was the best I ever had

I remember April ‘94
September '96
And every day of '99
Whether I waited for those records
Or helped Seattle cry
It was the best I ever had
And I know we’ll never die

Yeah, we were right about it
We’d be lost without it
Yeah what could ever take that?

I miss it too
And I miss the songs we knew
And if I could go back
I’d do it all again
It was the best I ever had

While the world was waking up and
Putting on their suits
I was planning my escape
And when I had that conversation
With my mom and dad
I said I’m never looking back
It was the best I ever had

And they were wrong about us
We showed them not to doubt us
Yeah what could ever take that?

I miss it too
And I miss the songs we knew
And if I could go back
I’d do it all again
It was the best I ever had

I’d do it all again

I’ve been everywhere now
Searching far and wide
But she was down the street
She looked just like an angel
Flying down to me
But I was underground
Where the devil comes to feed

And everything felt so right
I could show it to do wrong
But she taught me everything
And I don’t know where she is now
But I’ll never forget
She was the best I ever had
Or ever will again
The best I ever had

And if everyone else heard this
They wouldn’t be so sad
It was the best I ever had

Out of Range (2013)

And in the places you go
You’ll find these people you know
All sewing patterns into clothing that you’ve called your own
And in these smaller designs
There’s something larger you might find
That people’s hands have worked together to make up the parts of you.

Kill 'Em All (RJD2 remix)
Aesop Rock
Kill 'Em All (RJD2 remix)

I’ve been around the universe twice
The first time, I sat and looked
The second time, I broke the galaxy
Now I walk with a limp cause my foot’s coated in casualties
A small price to pay for a life of “Greetings, your Majesty”
Spread a billion apple seeds to honor his vision
Of underprivileged children p
lucking the fruits in their ripest hour
But the dreams have gone sour
Cowards dug up the roots 
Weaved the leaves, hung up a noose
And sacrificed their freedom vouchers

He did it in the name of Christ,
She did it for the grunt work
He did it for the star cluster that he’d named after his mother
Now it’s touching, and i guess it makes a great story to tell
But I’d rather be the wisher than the penny in the well
