lyrics

JND
Gimme a beat, I'll go off on a rant /
About how cash is in short supply at my bank /
Or how I want my own place again, but I can't afford it /
So I'm living with my folks back in Thornbury /
See I wanna be stacking more papers, so I trained up /
To be an electrician, just to make some /
Now I'm trying to do a course to harvest solar power on the roof tops /
And money is the key to all my blues, what? /
No it wouldn't buy me happiness, and yes I'm obsessed with it /
But who doesn't want a few extra credits with /
A few less being debited, while you're trying to save up, you’re getting ripped /
The taxman’s taken all my everything /
And what’s the point unless you're earning mega bucks /
Your getting f___ / steady look, the point I'm making is there’s many cuts /
We're facing it's unfair when you pay your share, but the rest are crooks /
Most too rich to care and those that take begrudge /
Unlike the most of you; my job is satisfying /
Still I cast my eye on being a muso though I'm 9 to 5ing /
6-days a week, most weeks, except December /
Last time I was off work and ill? I can't remember /
And it’s good when you're your own boss /
But if you don't work or you've no jobs then your dough’s lost /
And its soul destroying when you underprice 'em /
When estimating, but my dad says, “that comes with time, son” /
At the age of twenty well, I thought I'd have it sussed /
By the age of 26, I’m realising I am just /
Another guy designed to fail; maybe I'm defunct /
Or maybe I can't see the light as much as I once could //

Chorus x2
I make music for those wearing headphones /
And I've used it for pent up aggressed tones /
If you choose this to booze with or get stoned /
It's defusing my stressed dome out the red zone //

ExP
I’ll probably have Mr Nice Guy on my head stone /
Playing “No Regrets” at my laid-to-rest home /
Right now I’m in my twenties though, trying to get known /
And earn enough green so me and Mrs ExP can forget those /
Episodes of the multi-series sitcom /
Us repeating each day with a shh job, p_____ off /
It’s not what I planned for the time being /
But I’m seeing these times leaving me behind with an idea /
Of what might have been /
Just want life to leave me alone, I’m trying to dream! /
There’s no time to breathe /
Still I catch myself inhaling and exhaling /
Time moves forward this day and then that day and /
Another year gone, it’s insane but I’m mad saying /
I’m different to anyone who sleeps wakes and then cash chases /
But I learnt something /
There’s nothing worse than complaining about how it works with no alternative /
And for certain this is /
A journey you won’t complete, it’s unique but it’s purposeless /
And you’re a miracle of probability to see the earth’s surfaces /
You were created in the stars’ furnaces /
Each atom brought together to form one person that /
For some reason is aware they exist but isn’t certain if /
They prefer their wallpaper in violet or purple. Shh /
Pull yourself together /
Cos you might look at life like a fight contender /
That’s three times the height of you and twice as clever /
That you keep taking on to decide who’s better /
But fight it or hide it’ll find and get ya /
Don’t have to take advice I’m not trying to lecture /
For so long I put aside my life to strive for cheddar /
At the end of the day life’s a lesson /
Don’t learn that it was just a waste of time and effort //

Chorus x2
I make music for those wearing headphones /
And I've used it for pent up aggressed tones /
If you choose this to booze with or get stoned /
It's defusing my stressed dome out the red zone //

Addverse
Whether you sit alone getting stoned, or play so much that you’re never home /
Either way some things are set in stone /
Happiness can only ever be achieved /
If you work hard cos nothing in life is ever easy /
And yeah I realise we all have a certain cause /
And there's no reason why mine should be worse than yours /
I turned a corner when I learned to love my challenges /
I guess the gloves are off now I’ve toughened up my calluses /
I’m not embarrassed if I need a little help though /
Think about the time my arm was hanging off my elbow /
Money would be easy if I had the balls to sell coke /
But I’ve got a conscious of myself, so instead I’m broke /
And always on the hunt to try and stack another fund /
This crazy world has made me think that life without it isn't fun /
Just the same as everyone, tell me where has heaven gone? /
I feel as though I’m only ever seeing what the devil’s done /
I need to find a place to get away and think a bit /
Before I bust a vessel like my head’s a sinking ship /
Stressing from the pressure on the biggest cliff /
Suicidal thoughts like Biggie Smalls, I’m on the brink of it /
I feel the need to make a change now, a difference, a point, a purpose, a time for my age /
I’m not just a rhymer that writes on a page, and recites on the stage, with the lights on my face /
There's a time and a place so I wanna be there /
It makes no sense to me to be stopping to stare /
With nothing prepared and feeling like none of it’s fair /
There's 7 billion on the planet you say none of them care?//

Chorus x2
I make music for those wearing headphones /
And I've used it for pent up aggressed tones /
If you choose this to booze with or get stoned /
It's defusing my stressed dome out the red zone //
