Face Around
Hot Action Cop Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Aww way back in the day when I was still livin' in Queens,
Barely hip to the hopper Run DMC,
Me 'n my baby Perez,
Kickin' back with a six pack of Guinness,
X-wing fighters flyin' off of the bus,
Too fast like we got perennies on us,
To everyone we was one in the same,
Like brothers sharin' a name,
Then many years on down the line,
We torin' needles in his eye,
All the sudden like out of the sky,
Turn around angry to dry,
What what what what what you show no sign,
I never knew this friend of mine,
Yeah knew this friend of mine,
Yeah yeah,
I got so much trouble on my mind,
Though I don't try to be unkind,
Sometimes it gets way out of line,
But now it's too low!
Yeah you blow my mind,
Don't want your face around,
Yeah what just went down,
Don't want your face around?

Remember the time we watched kung-fu together,
Couldn't play outside because of bad weather,
Back then I knew you was my best friend,
Somehow I needed that right now,
Boilin' up like a roller in a crack pipe,
Goin' up on the gate for the whole shot,
Redlined twelve amped up pistons,
Gimme teeth so I can put my fist in,
There is nothing left of you and me,
The bird has flown out of the tree,
Long gone and nothin' is the same,
Blowed up like a face with no name,
What what what what what whatcha want to do?
Cause I don't believe whatcha do,
Yeah believe whatcha do yeah yeah,
I got so much trouble on my mind,
Though I don't try to be unkind,
Sometimes it gets way out of line,
But now it's too low!
Yeah you blow my mind,
Don't want your face around,
Yeah it kills the sound,
When you hang around,
(Ooh why did you turn?),
And kick me to the ground now,
Yeah just one down,
Don't want your face around?

At times I dream of better days,
When we was chillin' in the place,
Now I live within a sound,
And you will never bring me down,
(Yeah!),
I got so much trouble on my mind,
Though I don't try to be unkind,
Sometimes it gets way out of line,
But now it's too low!
Yeah you blow my mind,
Don't want your face around,
Yeah it kills the sound,
When you hang around,
(Ooh why did you turn?),
And kick me to the ground now,




Yeah just one down,
Don't want your face around?

Overall Meaning

The song "Face Around" by Hot Action Cop is a retrospective look at a friendship that went sour over time. The song starts by reminiscing about the good old days, hanging out with a friend, drinking beer and listening to Run DMC. However, as time passes, the friendship deteriorates, and the singer finds himself in trouble with his disloyal friend. The lyrics detail how the two friends used to be so close, but now they have drifted so far apart that the singer no longer wants to even see his friend's face. The singer acknowledges that sometimes he can be in the wrong, but he does not believe that he deserves to be treated poorly by someone he once considered a brother.


Overall, "Face Around" is a cautionary tale about the fragility of friendships and the importance of staying true to those you care about. The song's message is one of regret and sorrow for what was lost, but also one of strength and resilience in moving forward without someone who has let you down.

We were enjoying ourselves with some Guinness beer.


X-wing fighters flyin' off of the bus,
We were so fast that it felt like X-wing fighters were flying off the bus we were on.

Then many years on down the line,
As time went by,


We torin' needles in his eye,

All the sudden like out of the sky,
Suddenly and unexpectedly,


Turn around angry to dry,

I knew back then that you were my best friend.


Somehow I needed that right now,
I wish I had that friendship right now.


Boilin' up like a roller in a crack pipe,
I'm feeling angry and agitated like the roller in a crack pipe.


Goin' up on the gate for the whole shot,
Letting it all out like a runner starting a race.


Redlined twelve amped up pistons,
Feeling extremely intense and aggressive.


Gimme teeth so I can put my fist in,
Feeling a need to fight.


There is nothing left of you and me,
Our friendship is over and there's nothing left.


The bird has flown out of the tree,
You've left me behind and moved on.


Long gone and nothin' is the same,
You're gone and everything is different now.


Blowed up like a face with no name,
Completely ruined and unrecognizable.


What what what what what whatcha want to do?
What are you trying to do?


Cause I don't believe whatcha do,
I'm questioning your actions.


Yeah believe whatcha do yeah yeah,
Yes, I believe your actions are true.


At times I dream of better days,
Sometimes I dream of the past when things were better.


When we was chillin' in the place,
When we were hanging out, relaxing.


Now I live within a sound,
Now I live within music, or a certain lifestyle.


And you will never bring me down,
You won't have a negative impact on me anymore.


(Yeah!)
(Expressing agreement and excitement.)


Yeah it kills the sound,
Your presence ruins everything.
