It's 2017. I promise to try and have your back.


they're running it real now
they're coming up fast
we better watch our backs
we better watch our backs

they're coming against us
they're moving to act
but kinfolk I got your back
yeah neighbors I got your back

I don't want to stand up
with others forced to sit
I don't mean to put this all on me

I don't want to stand up
but I ain't feeling to sit
because it's 2017

and I just want to hang out

Look at this gateway; it has two faces. Two roads come together here, and no one has yet followed either to its end. This long lane backwards continues on for an eternity, and the long lane forward is another eternity. They are opposed to one another, and it is here, at this gateway, that they come together. The name of this gateway is inscribed above: "this moment."

Shabby Car Chico

Irritable, confused, increasingly drowsy: such is the life of the man they call Mr. Shabby.
