  • Her name was Lily, his was Todd
    She was tall and he was odd,
    And all the other girls said she was too fat for the squad
    She just wanted friends
    He just wanted broads
    He'll do anything for pussy, change his ways he swore to god
    He needs to straighten up
    He isn't smart enough
    I wouldn't be his date
    He doesn't dress like us
    Remember all the times that he got beat up on the bus
    But what he learned from that was to be careful who you trust
    He knew that they were wrong so he took it with a yawn
    He knew his time would come and he'd be moving on
    So he locked himself inside a room and started writing songs
    You could catch him in the back of class singing all along like

    Check the level cause something's coming' over me
    Check the level cause something's coming' over me
    Check the level cause something's coming' over me
    Something's got a hold of me always controlling me
    It's in the audio, it's in the air, it's in the way you move
    It's everywhere, it's something beautiful, that you don't know
    So feel the audio, and let it go

    Well back to miss lily when she used to let the days pass
    Sitting home alone sucking food up off her placement
    They used to call her fat so she started losing weight fast
    Got sick in debate class, to throw up what she ate last
    She didn't know that the things they said that left her hurting
    Would actually turn out to make her a better person
    She locked herself inside her room got to the rehearsing
    Walking down a runway in a dress she made from curtains
    So she started slimming up
    She was tall enough
    She became a model she was paid and she was loved
    See what they thought they knew about these two was givin' up
    Cause no matter what they said these two just didn't give a fuck
    They had it all along they just figured it out
    How to take the negativity and turn it all around
    Now lily's turning heads up on the runway in Milan
    And Todd is selling millions while his fans sing along like

    Check the level cause something's coming' over me
    Check the level cause something's coming' over me
    Check the level cause something's coming' over me
    Something's got a hold of me always controlling me
    It's in the audio, it's in the air, it's in the way you move
    It's everywhere, it's something beautiful, that you don't know
    So feel the audio, and let it go

    It's the six string slayer the rhyme cultivator
    Picking' home grown rhyme straight out the incubator
    Cross fade to the right while I slide to the left
    There's something coming over me controlling every breath
    Gasping for air my fears burn through
    If there's something in the audio then what they said was true
    Full speed ahead code red phase two
    The sound waves control the minds of me and you

    It's in the audio, it's in the air, it's in the way you move
    It's everywhere, it's something beautiful, that you don't know
    So feel the audio, and let it go Writer/s: CHARLES STANTON FRAZIER, DUSTIN BUSHNELL, JARED WATSON, LEWIS MICHEAL RICHARDS, STEVEN LAWRENCE FOX
