lyrics

verse

wake from a cold sweat
push the blanket off my bed
head spinning round like i’m rick from the walking dead
the air feels thicker
as the sun beams upon my face
must make haste
fast past to the bathroom
splash some cold water over eyes
and wonder why the gloom feels like a sauna
check air condition efficiency
apply the up and down but no response to my deliver
the temperature read 95 degrees and steady climbing
i need to cool the opposite of up if luck is on my side
the freezer provides
so i lock eyes across the desert plan
with each step my temp hotter than the last
so i’m left to crawl accordingly
though my legs are supporting me
finally made it
though the trek felt like i’m miles away
stand to find a broken fridge
no ice within the tray
the rooms spinning
but i’m trying to keep together self
one more card to play
so let the heat claim somebody else
the magnet on the fridge had an advert for amy’s ice
so i grab the bike
and hope the aim of my directions right
peddle like i’m training for a fight
speeds reach heights
of 5 mile spikes
with onlookers saying why even bike
covered in sweat from head to toe
ask for a bowl of vanilla and a milkshake togo
along with a mexican vanilla split
add the cookie crumbs
whip cream
cherry on top
and eat till the heat stops


hook

the heat
hot enough to wake you from your sleep
only way to cool it down
know the proper relief
