lyrics

AS THE ROMANS DO

V1
I bought a Tascam reel and a cast iron pan
A flask of Tequila, a fountain pen
A sexy typewriter, from way backwhen

I bid a fond farewell to my best-est friends
I packed my possessions in a U-Haul van
I soared, like a sailor to the promised land

PRE 1
Once I saw the aqueducts and statues
I knew what I had to do….
I'd do…do as the Romans DO

V2
I found a one-bedroom with a bird's eye view
I took the F train to 2nd avenue
Where the bath house was bumpin' the dubstep blues

They're sipping cane sugar sodas and top shelf booze
Mix Ralph Lauren togas with thrift-shop shoes
Meeting 9 to 5 quotas with a-nothin to lose...

PRE 2
They like to see pictures
They like captions
They like songs with lots of 'oohs'
That's how you do...do as the Romans do

BRIDGE
Sing with the sirens
What do they tell you?
Isn't it lovely
When they scream?

VERSE 3
I showed up to the alley with my tin pan
With a middle finger stickin up to the man
But the miners in the alley traded tin pans
For the Silicon Valley and a business plan

So I tattooed my face onto my hand
And unto my own image I built a brand
Now as soon as I have a mill-i-on faceless fans
That's when I'mma start movin' those cheap head bands

PRE 3
They like to see pictures,
They like captions,
They like songs with lots of...
Talk about my social status, add me to your list, I want to...
These days we build empires in much less than one day, oh yes it's true
And you can too
As long as you do...
Do as the Romans do
