"We're Here to Save the Day" by The Constellations featuring Asher Roth

I think The Constellations are a bunch of hippies. Don't hold that against them. They did a song with frat rapper Asher Roth—and I never heard a frat rap I didn't like. And there's a children's chorus backing them up. Yup, a hippie rock frat rap kid's chorus song. Listen:



Lyrics:

We're the stars
That shine so bright
We bling in cars
And rhyme so hard
The superstars
We're not afraid to say
We're here to save the day
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!

We'll take no prisoners
This is a war of the mind
And we're coming for your sons and daughters
It's our time to shine
Take your radio and throw it down
Shattered on the floor
There's nothing else I need to hear
And I just can't ignore
Your candy coated, bloated ego
Platinum pile of shit
With nothing in your arsenal
Pulled punches count as hits
But I've been waiting so long
For a song with just one change
You're verses strike a sounding chorus
You are all the same

We're the stars
That shine so bright
We bling in cars
And rhyme so hard
The superstars
We're not afraid to say
We're here to save the day
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!

The diamonds on your necklace
Are an elaborate choke chain
You're a dog tied to a leash
You're a slave to your wage
You sold your soul for something
You never will obtain
Every syllable you speak is weak
You have nothing to say
So save the folks some time and money
Stick to what you know
Stroke your ego on your own
And let me clear my throat
The sky is full of shining stars
Along the Milky Way
A living, breathing constellation
Here to save the day

We're the stars
That shine so bright
We bling in cars
And rhyme so hard
The superstars
We're not afraid to say
We're here to save the day
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!

Put it, put it, put it, put it on the shelf
Don’t touch that
Like a high soul
But you know it's just Ash
Go with the flow
You know I bust raps
No, not a bullet
This is more a musket
American Revolution
With the music
And what we do here
Isn't so a movement
The earth is moving
And we're consumers
So what we do is
We consume earth
Gimme, gimme, gimme 'cause they're so absorbed
'Til our world just passes by
(Bye, bye)
The constellations that ya'll ignored
Have the whole time been sittin' in the sky
(Wait, where?)
By the time we align and combine ourselves
To form guides and try to help
(Save me!)
And it is I who will tighten up Orion's Belt
So ya'll can decide yourself
(That's Roth, ya'll)

We're the stars
That shine so bright
We bling in cars
And rhyme so hard
The superstars
We're not afraid to say
We're here to save the day
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!
