It's Overloading the Machine as in, the washing machine, primarily. The name comes from the laundromat next door. They have very large signs on each machine which say, in all-caps, "DO NOT OVERLOAD THE MACHINE". All in all, there are at least twenty of these signs posted.
Both at the laundromat and at home, I regularly overload the machine, leading to unpredictable results.
The bling-bling era was cute //
but it's about to be done //
I leave you full 'o clips //
like the moon blockin' the sun //
my metaphors are dirty like herpes //
but harder to catch //
like an escape tunnel in prison //
I started from scratch
