Ian, Why Don't You Say Grace?

I was listening to Aesop Rock's latest album, when a song called 'Grace' comes up. Like all of his other songs, they require a few listens to understand them. One of the lyrics goes, "Less like toes in a tide pool, more like left-right poach from notable giant kaiju". Curious as to what the lyrics meant, I looked up 'kaiju' and found that it was a Japanese word meaning 'strange beast'. It's used in reference to Japanese monster movies, like Godzilla. I consider myself a fairly strange beast, and I'm also larger than average, so I adopted the name GiantKaiju.

Take a listen, the song's actually pretty funny. Though it might take you a few times to get it.
