Don't Even Trip
Peeping Tom Lyrics


Escapin the situation,
im outta the trap zone, (trap zone)
the ringers turned off on my, cellular phone (cellular phne)
the interm wants to be...detector, hold up, the silver money fold up, black and the cold is commin by me

you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay

my gettaway is the boat(boat)
P.O.39 by the westside(holla)
my skin is on point (on point)
im more easy to rob,
police on my trail, i gotta slide away like that express mail (mail, mail)

you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay
you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay

my imagination surprise you,
like the new york city subway,
third rail, one half is missing, three third fail
cant track down, by the phone, what if we lie by email

we get our-men..the bac-ck allys in, that look familiar inna highschool, baby, we gotta get away
we get up on us too, silent screams in red and blue, lonely streetlights that dont love my name, looks familar, we get our way, baby

you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay
you got to get away, you got to get away
you got to get away, because were here to stay

[Verse 1]
I think you're old enough to know it better
But I'm old enough to remember
(Don't even trip)
I won't use that stupid word forever
Cross your heart and hope to die

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't even trip
Don't get too big for your britches
(Don't even trip)
All these bones been jumping out of your closet
(You're not in your closet yet)
So blasé, don't turn and look the other way
(You wanna be a star)
You wanna be a star, you're oh so near yet oh so far
(Don't even trip)

[Verse 2]
You'll be flyin' south before the winter
On that long, long trip of the sinner
(Don't even trip, don't even trip, don't even trip)
Don't be throwing stones at the mirror
Look in peace and close your eyes

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't even trip
Don't get too big for your britches
(Don't even trip)
All these bones been jumping out of your closet
(You're not in your closet yet)
So blasé, don't turn and look the other way
(You gotta have it all)
You gotta have it all, you're oh so near yet oh so far

[Chorus]
And I know that assholes grow on trees
But I'm here to trim the leaves
And I'm afraid that you're still my friend
And you're just a piece of shit
But I can overlook it today
'Cause you're still my friend

[Verse 3]
Don't even trip
Drop that gun, you ain't my fucking hero
(Don't even trip, don't even trip, don't even trip)
You think it's cool to be a fucking zero?
(Don't even trip, don't even trip, don't even trip)
Can't believe I called you 'mi amigo'
Take a deep breath and you'll be fine
Because

[Pre-Chorus]
Speak up now
And one of you is a hundred loud
(When you preach you come off)
When you preach
They'll join you on the roofs and streets
(Like crystal clear)
Crystal clear
I'm hanging like a chandelier
(Watching over you)
Watching over you
I'll move you from song to tears

[Chorus]
And I know that assholes grow on trees
But I'm gonna trim the leaves
And I can say that you're still my friend
And you're still a piece of shit
But I can overlook it today
'Cause you're still my friend
And I know that assholes grow on trees
But I'm here to trim the leaves
And I'm afraid, are you still my friend?
And you're still a piece of shit
But I can look the other way
'Cause you're still my friend

Peeping Tom - Don't Even Trip

I think you're old enough
to know it better
But I'm old enough
to remember
(Don't even trip)
I won't use that
stupid word forever
(Cross your heart and hope to die)

Don't even trip
Don't get too big
For your britches
(Don't even trip)
All these bones
Been jumping out of
your closet
(Get out of your closet)
So blasé,
don't turn and look
the other way
(You wanna be a star) 
You wanna be a star
You're oh so near
Yet oh so far
(Don't even trip)

You'll be flyin' south
before the winter
On that long, long trip
of the sinner
(Don't even trip, don't even trip, don't even trip)
Don't be throwing stones
at the mirror
(Look in peace and close your eyes)

Don't even trip
Don't get too big
for your breaches
(Don't even trip)
All these bones
been jumping out
of your closet
(Get out of your closet)
So blasé,
Don't turn and look
the other way
(You gotta have it all) 
You gotta have it all
You're oh so near
yet oh so far

And I know that assholes grow on trees
But I'm here to trim the leaves
And I'm afraid
that you're still my friend
And you're just a piece of shit
But I can
overlook it today
'Cause you're still my friend

(Don't even trip)
Drop that gun,
you ain't my phucking hero
(Don't even trip, don't even trip, don't even trip)
You think it's cool to be
a phucking zero?
(Don't even trip, don't even trip, don't even trip)
Can't believe I called you
'mi amigo'
(Take a deep breath and you'll be fine)

Speak up now
And one of you
Is a hundred loud
When you preach
They'll join you on
the roofs
and streets
(Like Crystal clear)
Crystal clear
I'm hanging like
a chandelier
Watching over you
I'll move you from
song to tears

And I know that assholes grow on trees
But I'm gonna trim the leaves
And I can say
that you're still my friend
And you're still a piece of shit
But I can
overlook it today
'Cause you're still my friend

And I know that assholes grow on trees
But I'm here to trim the leaves
And I'm afraid,
are you still my friend?
And you're still a piece of shit
But I can
Look the other way
'cause you're still my friend

(Don't even trip)

this song is way too slept on

entrynotfound2

This is the perfect song for some of my Facebook friends that I keep deciding to hold onto (for some unfathomable reason!)

"And I know that assholes grow on trees but I'm here to trim the leaves and I'm afraid that you're still my friend and you're just a piece of shit but I can overlook it today 'cause you're still my friend"

more proof that anything mike patton touches...becomes gold.

"I know that assholes grow on trees but I'm here to trim the leaves" is an all-time clever lyric.

thosearepinklemons

Honestly, yeah, but if you really look into it, he's almost like a kaufman-esque comedy bit, mixed with some amazing music. There's so many layers to that dude. Epidermis, for one.

Virgo Mae

This is my first time listen to this album however I'm already in love with don't even trip 😂😂😂🤣🤣

Lacrimosa

The feel to this song is out of this world. I like it.

Cynthia Jones

11 years later and this song could not be more right... Mike is a bloody Prophet.

fattster83m1

I wonder if he ever sat perplexed realizing that this song was actually being sang to himself
