Something so intoxicating happens in your kisses

Gawd I swear I can never ever get enough of this track! This will forever be one of my all time favorites. No other rapper can put words together like this dude in my opinion. Someday someone will think of me like this, I'm sure of it! Listen to this one with your eyes closed.

"Now for those that know me
Which can't be said by many,
They'll tell you, I never fall in love
But on nights like this, when the twilight is deadly
And the city's sub atomic and barely breathing
I meet girls like this

I see her sittin at the ice cream parlor with a banana split
Emanatin such a radiant color of amethyst
I can't camouflage the jitters or the franticness
Everything about her fly posture says tantric bliss
The phantoms kiss spills poison from her still lips
That type of class is from a 1950's film script
I'm captivated to the core, it's hard to swallow
She's like a sun-dipped spirit gushing from the foggy hollows
There's condensation on the new bent metal
A conversation with this blue-lipped devil could peel the two lip petals
My fate'll say to me "Be calm and be cool"
But she learned to rule the world in cosmetology school
She's not like a Betty Page, she's like a Bible page
She's like a neon sky filled with a wild haze
I get her name and ask her for her number quite politely
She walks away while saying "If you're lucky then you'll find me."

But I think I feel that this time it's different
Everything about you wants to stimulate my senses
Something so intoxicating happens in your kisses
Lithium lips, it's those lithium lips, it's those

I see her downstairs at the hotel bar, continue story
Her eyes are stormy, she makes sure that she ignores me
This is nobodies promiscuous daughter
I roll a cigarette and order up a whiskey and water
Oh Christ, I can smell her from here
The ambrosia is like a sugar-coated elephant's ear
And now the prevalent fear is sweetly scented with the venoms we pass
Girls learn sexiness, women teach class
I approach her but I don't say a thing
I just take the halo off her head and wear it as a wedding ring
She's not a sexy thing, she's a sassy thinker
A classy drinker with the wine glass to tap her finger
Elegantly dressed, coats of posh nail polish
She sucks the heart from another cocktail olive
She says, "Quit having dreams about touching my face. Cause you're only in love with the chase."
Then she gets up and leaves.

But I think I feel that this time it's different
Everything about you wants to stimulate my senses
Something so intoxicating happens in your kisses
Lithium lips, it's those lithium lips, it's those

Now I don't ever fall in love
But on nights like this, when nimbus cloudlets of black fluff circle the skyscrapers
And the pulse of the city breaths new depths
That cleanse the palate of self
I have encounters like this

But I think I feel that this time it's different
Everything about you wants to stimulate my senses
Something so intoxicating happens in your kisses
Lithium lips, it's those lithium lips, it's those"
