[Intro - Voice Memo]

(King God)

(Laughter)

(Let’s do it)

One, two,

One, two, three


[Verse 1: Derek Simpson]

Our father said “Love thy neighbor as thyself”

My father said he’s only known two or three that would help

In Moments of loneliness, a crony who showed him wealth

Isn’t in money or Sony electronics, chronic, or pelts

It’s in the cells of the shoulder 

Holding your temple when you’re down

The health of your mental

When dimpled cheeks fly free from frowns

The beings who match your feelings

Turn your demons to clowns

Burn and beam celestial rays through any cloud

Talkin’ ‘bout

I take quality over quantity (Friends!)

If you can’t talk honestly, walk. You’re gone to me (Friends!)

Why you aboard? Get off my rocket, B (Friends!)

I’m takin’ the real ones to the top with me


[Chorus: Zac Hartwell]

Easy come and easy go

I better think, I better know

Easy come and easy go

While I’m fast asleep


[Verse 2: Jacques LeDoobz]

(Jacques LeDoobz!) 

Aha! 

Smoke a doobie, have a groovy night (Woo!)

I’m gettin’ loopy have a movie night (Alright)

Some Bud heavy and a Miller High Life! (High life)

‘Cause that’s the only shit I need in my life!

I ain’t goin’ out, I’m feelin’ chill

Some Harry Potter and a sleepin’ pill

They said that I was just too much to deal

But Seb and Kristie said they love me still

Too many joyrides to help a buddy out

Too many talks, I don’t recall what they’re about

Too many times my hope was turning into doubt

But I was self medicatin’, hesitatin’ on the changes

Impatient I was hat in’ on the statements they were makin’

Obvious and blatant, all these stupid fools are fakin’

A fork in the road, that’s the path that I was takin’

A leap in the fall man you see I’m fuckin’ shakin’ (Friends!)

Does anybody want a cigarette? (Friends!)

Uh, I know you do, you all the best (Friends!)

Lets have a ball and fuck the rest (Friends!)

‘Cause I’ll tell you what, I’m feelin’ blessed


[Chorus: Zac Hartwell]

Easy come and easy go

I better think, I better know

Easy come and easy go

While I’m fast asleep


[Verse 3: Mall Cop]

(We got the Mall Cop on the mic) 

Uh! How I’m feelin’ when I’m chillin’ with my boys

Like Mac Demarco with his Viceroys

Like a 5 Gum sensation

Cool spearmint, beer sips, dizzy watching The Matrix

(There is no spoon)

I pass out cold on the carpet

Woke up to the smell of my own vomit (Ugh)

Sitting, spinning, just another weekend

We livin’ ambitious just sippin’ life’s sweetness with my (Friends!)

I love you like Tide To Go (Friends!)

So painless and portable (Friends!)

Pour a drink and raise your glass (Friends!)

To endless nights, hope they’ll forever last


[Chorus: Zac Hartwell]

Easy come and easy go

I better think, I better know

Easy come and easy go

While I’m fast asleep


[Verse 4: Seb]

(C’mon Seb) 

I’m gonna be quick

Your friends are all you have so make it sick,

We strive on music, kickin’ back we’re watchin’ the clock tick (Yah)

I’m gonna be fast

This time we have together make it last

So many shared emotions throughout the past

It’s really true that we’re a magical crew

To conversations on the porches, to parties in the living room

No hesitations we will shine when the sun is through

And that’s a statement I can only truly prove with my (Friends!)

I love you to death, your my mothafuckin’ (Friends!)

Whenever your stressed, you go kick it with your (Friends!)

Kristie I love you, thanks for showing me your (Friends!)

Our spirits will stride when you collide with your


[Chorus: Zac Hartwell]

Easy come and easy go

I better think, I better know

Easy come and easy go

While I’m fast asleep


[Verse 5: Lindo Machine]

(Lindo Machine!) 

I love my homies like my Mommy and my Daddy (Woo!)

I love my homies ‘cause they always lookin’ after me (Uh-huh)

I love my homies for the thoughtfulness and understanding (Understanding)

I love my homies for the good times ahead of me (Yeah!)

So what the hell if it’s a Monday night? (Woo!)

Grab some puff, take a sip another loopy night

Wake up in the morning guts contorting but it ain’t so bad

Scroll a spliff, take a hit, and head to Azkaban (Friends!)

Can you spot me on a sixer bro? (Friends!)

‘Cause you know we goin’ to the show (Friends!)

Big time hangin’, conversatin’ (Friends!)

Take a tab and watch the morning glow


[Chorus: Zac Hartwell]

Easy come and easy go

I better think, I better know

Easy come and easy go

While I’m fast asleep


[Verse 6: Derek Simpson & Steve]

(Steve, hit the mic!)

(Spit your verse Steve)

I can’t, I can’t rap

(Do it!)

No.


[Bridge: Derek Simpson, Zac Hartwell, Linden Crumrine, & Jack O’Brien]

Easy come and easy go

Friends!

Easy come and easy go

(They come and they go and)

(They come and they go and)

(They come and they go)

Easy come and easy go


[Outro: Jack O’Brien]

It doesn’t matter! ‘Cause when you’re with your boys

You hang ten all the way in!

Let me take you to a, uh, a scene

Of complete serenity!
