Intro – Apollo (Mary Julia Hinson)
We sippin' fine wine tonight baby
(Feels good, feels good, feels good)
Ladies and gentleman I’d like to thank you for coming out tonight
(Feels good, feels good, feels good)
Turning off your ears, your mind and your heart
(Feels good, feels good, feels good)
Lets get into it

Verse 1 - Apollo
You'll be happy when you get, fill in the blank
You're more fun when you drink, take another drink
Sip on this elixir or this liquor try to loosen up
Let me introduce ya, my name is Lucifer
And I got you in my palm
Do you even hear what I'm putting in these songs
Or what I'm putting in these liquids
Mixing up lies in this life, my elixir
Uh, go and sip it up
Chase fame, maybe you can have a million bucks
Chase suc-cess, and a bunch of stuff
You think you'll feel enough, you’ll never feel enough

Hook x2 Apollo (Mary Julia Hinson)
(Feels good) To the music
And aw baby just dance to the music
(Feels good) To the music
And aw baby (just dance)

Verse 2 - Apollo
How's the champagne taste, I mixed it full of hate
Great, I'll invent this thing called race
Oppression, killing, yelling over differences in melanin
Imaginary borders disconnect the human skeleton
99% the same
But I need derision
Fixate that 1 in their brain
And manufacture division
Precision, mixing greed in the recipe
Up next, manifest destiny
Invade, slaughter, take they daughters
Barter human beings, imposing Europeans
Leave ‘em all with zero
Columbus was a murderer; I'll make him a hero
This is how you were made
Land of the free, built by the slaves

Hook x2

Verse 3 - Apollo
A lot of problems in this world, together you could fix them
But try a quick-fix, shortcut, or elixir
Or try to fight back, collab and think highly
Nah, just watch O’Reilly talking bout Miley
Cyrus, I'll make your iris blinded
Completely unaware of the virus that I hid
Deep in your society
Swallow these pills to cope with your anxiety
You need it; life's better when you're weeded
Just throw back a prozac, a xanie give control back
The best lie I ever told
Is that you have no control
The place where you're born is the place you'll reside in
Forget about living, you're resigned to surviving
Sweet taste of sin
So go and sip it all in like

Hook x 2

Verse 4 – Apollo
If success ain’t immediate, its time to be deviant
Profit over principle, hard work is tedious
But you need be obedient
To fear mongering, manipulating by the media
I'll take away your teachers, make ‘em babysitters
They don't need class, kids got twitter
I'm fearful of the wise, so remember and reprise
Getting old sucks, 18 was your prime
Fill spiritual voids with the physical world
To be a man you need a hot girl
Your self worth is in your belt girth
So go and get a couple notches
If it feels good it is good
And just blame others for your problems
My advice, get a vice for that void in your life
Seek a high that you'll never reach twice
In fact, it'll only make it deeper
Now you can't sleep, demons all in your demeanor
Satanic promises
You'll keep sippin' cause it’s bottomless

Outro - Apollo
My plan sounds foolish don't it
But I'll make learning uncool, they won't even know it
