the liner notes lyrics – evidence

“the liner notes”
(feat. aloe blacc)

why do you have an umbrella?
because the weather man said that you have to have one at all times
because it’s going to rain cats and dogs

uh, welcome back, yeah
one liner flow
see it in my liner notes
the kind of ideas make it seem like the thoughts took 365 nights
i picture the high life
poolside, made my own terms from lonely nights
they say old soul with kids energy
steals off of my torso with enemies
by any means, i’ve seen what it’s worth
a curse, snakes and centipedes is venomous
seems the only safe place is venice beach
try to wrong my rights, try to right my wrongs
try to write my songs
shine lights but the night is gone
daybreak becomes the encore
can’t tell the day to stay because i’m on tour
a young kid pumpin’ de la soul
spit live, you could say loco
16 not a day, no flow
i grew up with nervous skaters
some headed for greatness
others served as waiters
some nameless, others were stars and straps
ain’t famous
steel that ain’t stainless
hi haters, peace signs, see ya later
lyin’ for no reason
quit tryin’, it’s greasy
easy target, walked up in florida gators
origin lost angels, support lakers
four finger discount, [?] my fortress
fortress of my get down, live from belgium stages
la made him, la grazed him, then la saved him
it’s back to the beach b*tch where miss taylor raised him
my momma opposite of sarah palin
with no gat, from russia lookin’ back like, quit playin’
ev is here, stayin’

i do believe the idiom “raining cats and dogs”
stems from the norse mythology
cats were believed to represent the wind
snd dogs represented rain
different animals represented different weather
a national phenomenom
