ICP_miracles

I take it back! Just a couple of days ago, I was complaining about being on the frontlines of the Internet-Juggalo war (if you see something, meow something, indeed). But I take that all back now. My apologies, my ninjas. I’m sorry I was being such a neden hole about this. Because the truth is, while being on the frontlines of the Internet-Juggalo war has its down moments when you feel like you’re just going through the motions (which look something like this), but then there are days like today, magical days, MIRACLE DAYS, when you discover the Insane Clown Posse’s new music video for their song “Miracles,” and suddenly it is all worth it. Suddenly you remember WHAT WE ARE FIGHTING FOR!

Honestly, this video is what it is all about, you guys. This is why we are all here. Next level laffs:

“This feeling is unapproachable.”
– Gabe and Violent J’s side-by-side tombstones

I’ve taken the liberty of reprinting the full (amazing) lyrics to this song below. I assume you will take the liberty of printing them out wallet-sized, having them laminated, and carrying them somewhere close to your beating heart. (Thanks for the tip, Jane.)

If magic is all we’ve ever know
Then it’s easy to miss what really goes on
But I’ve seen miracles in every way
And I see miracles everyday
Oceans spanning beyond my sight
And a million stars way above em at night
We don’t have to be high to look in the sky
And know that’s a miracle opened wide
Look at the mountains, trees, the seven seas
And everything chilling underwater, please
Hot lava, snow, rain and fog
Long neck giraffes, and pet cats and dogs
And I’ve seen eighty-five thousand people
All in one room, together as equals
Pure magic is the birth of my kids
I’ve seen shit that’ll shock your eyelids
The sun and the moon, and even Mars
The Milky Way and fucking shooting stars
UFOs, a river flows
Plant a little seed and nature grows
Niagara falls and the pyramids
Everything you believed in as kids
Fucking rainbows after it rains
there’s enough miracles here to blow your brains
I fed a fish to a pelican at Frisco bay
It tried to eat my cell phone, he ran away
And music is magic, pure and clean
You can feel it and hear it but it can’t be seen

Music is all magic
(Are you a believer in miracles)
You can’t even hold it
(Do you notice and recognize miracles)
it’s just there in the air
(Are you a believer in miracles)
Pure motherfucking magic Right?
This shit’ll blow your fucking mind
(Do you notice and recognize miracles)

Music is a lot like love, it’s all a feeling
And it fills the room, from the floor to the ceiling
[ Find more Lyrics on http://mp3lyrics.org/RFGe ]
I see miracles all around me
Stop and look around, it’s all astounding
Water, fire, air and dirt
Fucking magnets, how do they work?
And I don’t wanna talk to a scientist
Y’all motherfuckers lying, and getting me pissed
Solar eclipse, and vicious weather
Fifteen thousand Juggalos together
And I love my mom for giving me this
Time on this planet, taking nothing for granted
I seen a caterpillar turn into a butterfly
Miracles ain’t nothing to lie
Shaggy’s little boys look just like Shaggy
And my little boy looks just like daddy
Miracles each and every where you look
And nobody has to stay where they put
This world is yours for you to explore
there’s nothing but miracles beyond your door
The Dark Carnival is your invitation
To witness that without explanation
Take a look at this fine creation
And enjoy it better with appreciation
Crows, ghosts, the midnight coast
The wonders of the world, mysteries the most
Just open your mind, and it ain’t no way
To ignore the miracles of every day

(Are you a believer in miracles)
Magic everywhere in this bitch
(Do you notice and recognize miracles)
it’s all around you, you don’t even know it
(Are you a believer in miracles) Shit’s crazy
(Do you notice and recognize miracles,
So many miracles, the magic miracles)

Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles
Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles
Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles
Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles

  1. Fucking magnets, how do they work?
    I was asking this EXACT QUESTION Last night during Lost.

  2. remember guys, this video is available in the Nuclear Edition of the ICP’s smash hit album Bang! Pow! Boom! (thanks for the tip, Sugar Slam)

  3. “Long neck giraffes, and pet cats and dogs /And I’ve seen eighty-five thousand people
    All in one room, together as equals/ Pure magic is the birth of my kids”

    Clearly he has his priorities straight.

    “I’ve seen shit that’ll shock your eyelids” Poetry

  4. This shit blew my motha fuckin’ mind.

  5. “Fucking rainbows after it rains”
    I feel a new skittles trademark coming on:
    Taste the Rainbow, Fuck the Rainbow

  6. some humpty-back-camels and some chimpanzees

  7. I feel like we are all riding Falcor while watching this video.

    • Haha. I can’t even say anything bad about this video. I sincerely wish I was able to recognize all the miracles that this bitch has to offer.

  8. “Niagara falls and the pyramids /Everything you believed in as kids”

    Whose going to break it to ICP that they still exist. Or maybe i’m just a kid at heart?

  9. Move over, Johnny Cash’s “Hurt.” We have a new Greatest Music Video of All Time!!!!!!!!!!

  10. “Shaggy’s little boys look just like Shaggy”

    It wasn’t me?

  11. It’s SOOOOO much better in 3d IMAX. It’s in tents*.

    *pronounced intense

    • Just like that circus fire I read about. It was in tents, too.

      But seriously, it’s a muthafuckin miracle that no long necked giraffes or pet cats were injured.

      And I thank my mom for giving me this time on this discussion board.

      Fuckin rainbows.

  12. This should definitely be the song that plays during the credits of the Green Eggs and Ham movie starring Gwyneth Paltrow.

  13. With concerts of “eighty-five thousand people / All in one room” shouldn’t they have enough money for a better video?

  14. I video reminds me of all those generic landscape and nature photos that come with new computers, except, you know, MORE NEXT LEVEL!

  15. Someone please explain this to me?

    Fifteen thousand Juggalos together
    And I love my mom for giving me this

    Really, I’m stumped over here

    • Maybe his mom invited everyone to this gathering? Could Sugar Slam be the Juggalo queen? …We’d best stay away from her, that bitch.

  16. I love that he took the initiative to include an anecdote about a pelican trying to eat his cell phone. Artistry!

  17. “we don’t have to be high to look in the sky
    and know that’s a miracle opened wide”

    this sounds like the main arguement of every religious (college educated!!!) stoner i’ve ever known when they attempt to convince me that atheism is not the right choice.

    • As if you can’t be amazed at the wonders of the natural world without believing that a supernatural being created it. I think it’s even more amazing that all this fuckin amazin shit happened all on its own.

      Motherfuckin miracles, right.

  18. That pelican is a carzy motherfuckin’ juggalo bitch. It doesn’t give a fuck! It’ll steal your sandwich, break your phone then shit on your ’98 Corolla. DILL with it!

  19. “Fucking magnets, how do they work?”
    - ICP

    “nuff said”
    - Richard Dawkins

  20. Dudes on stilts…now that’s a mutha fuckin’ miracle.

  21. Guys, I think were missing the genius of their poetry. It’s stream of consciousness of course (DUH), it’s not suppose to make sense.

    I mean the last time I was tripping acid & wearing my clown makeup shit got intense. I started to believe in things that I haven’t believed in since i was a kid.
    Like Abe Lincoln and the Brooklyn Dodgers. The Kodak Theater in California or Swiss Cheese.

    Wait I think I just wrote a song right there, I need to go record it…..

  22. I fed a fish to a pelican at Frisco bay
    It tried to eat my cell phone, he ran away

    What the hell? That’s not a miracle, that’s a Jay Leno joke.

  23. Do you get it now, Martin Bashir?

  24. “Fucking rainbows after it rains / there’s enough miracles here to blow your brains”

    - Thoreau’s Walden, or ICP’s “Miracles”? Your guess is as good as mine.

  25. I think the best way to describe this video would be “Magic everywhere in this bitch”

  26. Is Eddie Murphy going to sue ICP for stealing the “weird shit (including clowns) in poorly created computer clouds” gimmick from his “Wazupwitu” video?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D9cQOcAC_K8

    Seriously guys, if you’ve never seen it before, watch this. This man was nominated for an Oscar.

    • Eddie Murphy had no business leaving the music business.
      He only left because his girl likes to party all the time. He couldn’t keep up with her hectic schedule.

  27. Sweet Christ. This is the greatest hump day gift I’ve ever been given.

  28. I think the only miracle here is why I didn’t just masterbate to this in the carpool on I-80. Consider my eyelids and eardrums shocked (does “shocker” hand sign).

  29. Well, how about that. Unfortunately this comes too late for me, Gabe. You can imagine my embarrassment when, at Easter services this past Sunday, after Holy Communion, the congregation broke out into a rousing rendition of this hymn and I DID NOT KNOW THE WORDS. I really could’ve used that wallet-sized laminated printout.

    “Magic everywhere in this bitch” – Luke 24:13 (Holy Bible, Juggalo ed.)

    • I thought these lyrics were familiar! Adapted from the bible, just like Pete Seeger did with Turn Turn Turn!

      I only hope ICP’s aggressively pro-Faygo and Backyard Wrestling platform is as effective and respected as Mr. Seeger’s Clearwater campaign.

    • I wish I could upvote this a million times. I am going to wake up at night laughing at this.

  30. Bitches, I ain’t think I ever fuckin see
    A rhyme so dope as a muthafuckin TREE.

  31. I fed a fish to a pelican at Frisco bay
    It tried to eat my cell phone, he ran away

    if Sufjan Stevens sang this over a ukulele you would have called it genius hipstergum.

    (take a joke)

    • I can hear it.

    • I absolutely disagree. I think we can tell the difference between good and bad writing, thank you very much.

      Now if he sang it over a banjo, with a trumpet playing lightly in the background, get me some new pants. Best album of the year.

    • Wait wait wait. Sufjan Stevens wrote a song about John Wayne Gacy, the “killer clown”. Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope dress up like….killer clowns. OH MY GOD IT’S FULL OF STARS

  32. Despite their wholesale rejection of scientific inquiry, this may be the greatest song ever written.

  33. Reading the lyrics and imagining Jeff Magnum singing them makes it that much more epic.

  34. Fucking magnets, fucking rainbows, brown paper packages tied up in strings, these are a few of my favorite things.

  35. I invited this song to my boss’s house for dinner last night. This morning, I received a promotion and am now working on the floor above where I used to work.

  36. Another miracle: My head didn’t explode as soon as this song ended.

  37. This video is pure mother fucking magic.

  38. “Fucking magnets, how do they work?
    And I don’t wanna talk to a scientist
    Y’all motherfuckers lying, and getting me pissed.”

    Very brave of ICP to speak so candidly to the vast scientist demographic of their fanbase.

  39. This is going on the summer jams mixtape, yes?

  40. I think someone got a Deepak Chopra book for their birthday.

  41. “Water, fire, air and dirt
    Fucking magnets, how do they work?”
    - Violent Empedocles

  42. “Magic everywhere in this bitch.”

    ICP just wrote the invitations to my son’s 2nd birthday party.

  43. The ad-lib around the three-minute mark: “Shit’s great!” That’s what did me in. If ICP didn’t exist, Mr. Show would have invented them.

  44. so is the fat clown just kevin smith in makeup orrr???

  45. News Update: Insane Clown Posse have announced their successful crossing of the creepy clown / funny clown divide. In the opposite to usual direction.
    Many fucking clowns have crossed the divide from funny to creepy. But the Insane Clown Posse are the first clowns in clown fucking history to make the opposite transition safely.
    Earlier, mothafucking lying bitch ass scientists claimed that the creepy to funny crossing would ‘require a miracle’.

  46. If the valedictorian were forced to co-write a graduation speech with the most aggressively bad student in the school, it would produce these lyrics.

  47. I feel like I lose a few brain cells while reading them, but I fucking love the Youtube comments on ICP’s videos:
    “Man…. I LOVE being a Juggalo!
    Much Love to all my FAM! Whoop Whoop!

    Its a Miracle that these guys keep giving and
    just a shame that we are hated.

    But that hate is nothing but fuel, fuel that lights our fire!
    Keeps us burning bright, because they can never have what we have…
    Friends, Family, Homies…. Juggalo’s! 1″- GoDsDeMoNdCh1ID

    • GoDsDeMoNdCh1ID seems like a real guy’s guy.

    • It’s kind of true – it is a miracle not only what ICP gives us, but what the Juggalos as a whole bring to the table. And by that I mean NONSTOP LAFFS!

    • “Here’s the moral to the story,
      we don’t do it for the glory,
      we don’t do it for the money,
      we don’t do it for the things so all the critics who despise us, just go ahead and criticise us,
      it’s your tyranny that drives us, adds the fire to our flame and it goes

      In one ear, and right out the other…”
      -Cage The Elephant, proud Juggalos

  48. I’m actually amazed, given what I’ve seen and heard of these people, that they could actually be this sensitive to the beauty of nature. “This sensitive” being a relative term, of course, given the aforementioned fucking rainbows etc.

  49. A lot of green screen up in this bitch and they DIDN’T put any balls on things that shouldn’t have balls? That fucking rainbow, or perhaps the fucking pyramids? Seems like a missed opportunity.

  50. Finally, an answer to the age-old question: What happens if you get high, listen to Kid Cudi, and try to play Myst ALL AT THE SAME TIME.

  51. Fucking razors that shave your neck hairs before a video shoot, how do they work?

  52. Wait, do they really say “[ Find more Lyrics on http://mp3lyrics.org/RFGe ]” in the song?

  53. I’ve watched this video three times. Its like a motherfucking helicopter ride into my motherfucking heart.

  54. Looks like they went to LOST’s school of CGI and sound effects.

  55. Has ICP always been emo?

  56. Was I was the only one who was reminded of PM Dawn’s “Set Adrift on Memory Bliss”?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0AOVf9p9ht4

  57. “Fucking magnets, how do they work?” is the quote of the year!

  58. Wait, Juggalos know that ‘not high’ is a thing?

  59. Wait, that’s what ICP sounds like? I have been judging them by their faces and assumed they made thrashy guttural nightmare music. If you remove all the fucks from the lyrics they sound exactly like a Christian rap group! Would a Juggalo hatchet my face for saying that? Or are they SECRETLY NICE?

    • Also not a miracle: the uncanny similarities between father and son. I think any kid would look like Violent J if you plaster his face with clown makeup.

    • Seriously, this could be the next big hit at Jesus camp if you took at the fucks and added a few Lords. Ta fuckin da, bitchez!

    • They actually sort of are a Christian rap group. I used to work with someone with Juggalo friends and she explained that ICP’s whole schtick was a way to bring their fans to God. I am not joking. Check out the lyrics to their song Thy Unveiling:

      When we speak of Shangri-La, what you think we mean?
      Truth is we follow GOD!!!!
      We’ve always been behind Him!
      The Carnival is GOD and may all Juggalos find Him!

      May The Juggalos Find god!
      May The Juggalos Find god!
      May The Juggalos Find god!
      He’s out there, He’s Out there!

      We’re not sorry if we tricked you!
      We don’t care what happens now.
      We’re not sorry if we tricked you!
      We swing our hatchet and we`re proud.
      We’re not sorry if we tricked you!
      Painted faces in the crowd.
      We’re not sorry if we tricked you!
      The Carnival will carry on.

  60. I miss my uncle Charles

  61. [i]Music is all magic
    It’s just there in the air
    You can’t even hold it[/i]

    I wish I could hold this music, so I could wipe my butt with it.

    COUNT IT.

  62. Confidential to Gabe: Sorry I said anything about Juggalo-based humor being played out. Now more than ever, we need ICP at every available opportunity.

  63. “Eat, pray, love.”-Violent J

  64. Aside from my deep love of necro-beastiality, this helps me take pause and appreciate the finer things in life. Stars, rainbows, all that shit.

  65. seems like they’ve really toned down the rape and killing in this song, but I don’t really get metaphor and shit so who knows

  66. Did anyone else notice this line?

    “Music, you can’t even hold it! Its just there in the air!”

    and he looks at the camera like he’s the most clever person alive.

  67. Here’s a lying scientist (Richard Feynman), talking about how difficult it is to explain how fucking magnets work. I can maybe understand why it’s too much for juggalos to take:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wMFPe-DwULM

  68. guys, let’s be real. if i don’t get more of violent j’s floating head scrolling across the screen saying “MAGIC EVERYWHERE IN THIS BITCH” in my regularly scheduled programming, i’ll probably stop believing in god.

  69. I… I can’t even… what is… huh?

  70. “I like them. They rap happy.” – Lance (NPH)

  71. you know, other than the hilarious ignorance here, this is pretty much a Michael Franti song.

  72. ICP went with this. i think my favorite was the DNA strands, planets and a circus tent all floating around together.
    magic is truly everywhere in this bitch.

  73. So this might be a long shot, but I think my favorite line is actually “the sun and the moon, AND EVEN MARS!” Like they think we all assume Mars is some shitty castoff planet that no one cares about, but the ICP has graciously decided to include it in their list of miracles. Like “no really guys, Mars is pretty cool too!” I didn’t know Mars needed the ICP’s help.

  74. You guys have pretty much nailed it. The only other thought I have while watching this video is:

    WTF

    IS DIS REAL

  75. Don’t get me wrong, this a beautiful song with a beautiful message

    But I gotta masturbate at least once DAMN!

  76. This reminds me of the Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston song from The Prince of Egypt.

    “There can be miracles when you fuckin’ believe, bitch.”

  77. I like the part where they rhyme “miracles” with “miracles” like twenty times in a row.

    But magnets can go fuck themselves.

  78. Apologies in advance for the following unpleasant observation: Violent J’s mouth looks EXACTLY like an anus when he’s “oooooooooo”-ing at 3:27 the mark.


  79. +


    +
    listening to too much Owl City
    =
    This video

  80. STOP writing songs, everyone. Its over. There’s no improving on this. Move on.

  81. If there were a way to take this video on a date and hold hands with it I would do so immediately.

  82. here’s my question:
    Say you like Insane Clown Posse (which I’m guessing from the comments nobody here does).
    Where do you go when they get too lame for you?
    Who is going to fill that gaping hole in your life?
    Meth?
    Sure, maybe.
    But what if you want to listen to music about raping and murdering your mom while you are cooling out and smoking enough meth to kill a horse?
    You’re fucked now.
    Who will speak for the children?

    • there are sooooo many horrorcore acts that this void will never dry…”Boondox” will probably speak for the kidzzzz

  83. I just made a connection that I’m not sure is common knowledge. Did you guys know that Sugar Slam (the girl from Juggalo News and the Gathering infomercial) is MARRIED to Violent J? And they have two kids together? Don’t know why that blows my mind but it does.

  84. It’s like someone took gay Catholic teenagers in 1995 and had them describe their dream rap group. I can NOT wait to tease my friend Orion about this Miracle of Homosexuality by his favorite group.

  85. magic is all around us….as is a lawsuit for stealing my life stories.

    written in 1938, my autobiography titled The Life And Times Of A Space Floater vividly describes the time i floated in deep space as a huge (semi-attractive) lady floated by with her legs spread.

    she was clearly part of a super race of space giants about to give space birth. i got some great photos.

    if any of you want to read about more of the things i have seen while floating in space, please buy my book where they sell books.

  86. Wait… what does he do to rainbows after it rains?

  87. When did ICP turn into some hippy fags?

  88. “I fed a fish to a pelican at Frisco bay
    It tried to eat my cell phone, he ran away”

    The lyrics to this song have more layers than an onion made of exploration. For example, the lyrics above are not only aesthetically pleasing, but they present an interactive experience for the listener, creating a bridge between artist and patron in ways never before attempted. If one looks closely at the lyrics, a mystery presents itself, and the audience is left no choice but to solve the puzzle or lay awake at night for the rest of his/her existence wondering:

    “He ran away” Who ran away? Was it the fish or the pelican? Using context clues, placed delicately around the solution like a catering plate, we are confronted with the shocking and unexpected answer.

    Fish swim. Birds fly. NEITHER BIRD NOR FISH RUN.

    Therefore, the cell[phone ran away.

    • “he ran away” is actually Shaggy2Dope referring to Violent J…VJ starts the story, but S2D finishes with a description of VJ fear of birds…(i think i’ve watched this too many times)

  89. Oh sweet Jesus, I am seriously tardy to this party. I have nothing of value to add to this thread, just to say, great job everyone! You’re all a bunch of muthuhfuckin’ miracles.

  90. “Violent J, do you know how magnets work?” – Martin Bashir

  91. Shaggy 2 Dope coming out of my crotch isn’t what I would call a miracle, more like an unwanted growth.

  92. “It’s just there in the air, which is also a miracle. Breathing air is a miracle. Farting is a miracle”

  93. Oh hello Magic, I didn’t notice you there, but now I recognize you everywhere in this bitch

  94. Is this Guy Fieri’s other gig?

  95. I really enjoyed this until I realized there was three minutes left. Then rage consumed me.

  96. Can two people even call themselves a posse? From now on I’m referring to them as the Insane Clown Duet.
