about

I used to drive around my hometown of Los Angeles, CA everyday.
It has a glossy veneer of glamour, but when you get better acquainted with the deeper nature of this town you'll see what we mean when we talk about that LA nocturne.

lyrics

As I conduct my LA nocturne
Soundtrack inspired by the DOC and the Doctor rock proper fire in flow that blocks aqua ducts that buck under the pressure now I gotcha
the explosion is imminent, composed of cold steel my whole skill sets the precedent
so impeach the president
I'm pulling out your trump card because you voted for a dumb fraud
How drumpf wanna run y'all
Pistol grip pump to a chump who wanna front hard
real G's don't need bodyguards
and have the total disregard to leave holes in your body parts
Soul cold on ice like disembodied arts
feel it from your dome to your Adidas, fast as a Maserati starts
remote transmission not talking about a gearbox so gearheads might listen
took it to the redline now that's the shift composes my L.A. nocturne now pass that shit
Come on

From dusk til dawn word is bond we be gettin it on and on my LA nocturne
Up until the day breaks
And it makes people skate/gape those drapes
Expose that LA nocturne (x2)

Sunset to sunrise on sunset surprises at every turn right
on Crescent Heights smoke through the night filtering light from streetlamps that's piped
Root deep in concrete, like you ain't bout that street life
you can run away from time like escape into history book like time life
or engage the stage for limelight
if space and time is right or alternate possibilities could blindside in hindsight like
I should've been done that
the time is right to rhyme tighter so I run that
the whole nine straight to the goal line
going the whole time with no canary in the coal mine
Los Angeles is glamorous
no comebacks like Lazarus if you encounter what's hazardous
Behind the shadows and the mist inanimate
as it lay in wait with hate like a nocturnal contaminant what...?

The fuck, when I think I'm out of luck and stuck, I conduct my LA nocturne
As the rubber meets the road across those area codes that I know I compose my LA nocturne (x2)
