Summer Wine

from Keyholes EP by Oso Negro & Ph8



"Summer Wine" - Track 3
Ph8's strings and drum loops provide Oso with space to tell about life from the Plant Kingdom's perspective. All may seem quiet, but there is a never-ending battle raging, and all means justify the ends in this cut throat silent war waging just beneath our noses and beyond our perception.


the fruits of our labor,
the only juice we can savor
save the truces for later
this gunfight's for sunlight, producing the flavor
and we exist as a factory
persist thanks to the master bee
how it has to be, a lasting theme, of passing genes
now let it flow in the vastest streams
barrage of biological batteries in the battlefield
chemical warfare, deployed where the tragic's real
allelopathics, classic, back tactics up
scene's drastic, scheme's amassing, we rack it up
arsenal, sparse then full
power devour nutrients,
phosphorous stocked for us, now we nuke equipped
my technique's elusiveness
enzymes oxidizin and reducin shit
mutated fukushima drips
grow leaves via folded proteins
sow green relentless trenches, then reap from my whole team
bangin never stops, hanging any crop from
every post, tree, string, or object that'll hold me
mostly i'm ghostly with that slow creep
always on the lam, yeah my cultivar is "bo peep"
soak deep, tap root, no feet, blow attack you,
breeze, release my allergens, go sneeze with your "a-choo"
catch you with a thorn or sticker
your skin torn or ripped through
a hidden branch, floors and trips you
i list the seasons as my pit crew [sick, dude]
the reason i see fit to, the body work, and thick 'do
core builds more i fill with the chlorophyll's
i become inclined
to SWEETen up for summer wine
swish it past your gums, sometime
