lyrics

ExP
Yo – I write for the left of it /
Live for the death of it /
Laugh like I never did /
Work it out – like a clever kid /
There’s benefits to getting ready but instead of this /
I just did it, made my mark and remembered it /
Forgetting it, is a bi-product of a short memory /
Hope my music reaches all centuries /
More leisurely, in the way I distribute my core energies /
And spend time with Evie, Laura, or Emily /
Both Uncle and Godfather /
Time’s a squeeze since I dropped part of my life to work at hip-hop harder /
No fully stocked larder /
Need cash but I’m not starving /
Need socks darned but I’m not starkers /
Winter’s cold on my toes /
But these holes in my clothes /
Just signs my soul’s aligned with the goal that I chose /
Writing in dark rooms, counterbalancing arse tunes /
From cartoons, controlled by chart sharks that should be harpooned! //

Chorus
I…wuntathought – getting heard was so difficult
I…wuntathought – everyone was so cynical
I…wuntathought – it would take a flipping miracle, to make something major out of something so minimal

I…wuntathought – that I’d still make the best of it
I…wuntathought – that I’d stop being a pessimist
I…wuntathought – one day would be so effortless, the next like climbing Everest
Get the gist?

JND
You should know the crew name, true – and the heads I roll with /
How we keep tracks fresh on a budget /
Cos truth be known, I bin working on the studio /
The music home of Sinoptic – fluent with no usual quotes /
My script computer wrote, tapping up the smoothest prose /
Cos my handwriting’s messy, plus it’s super slow /
As long as I can read it, that’s all that matters /
But that’s not what my teachers said, back in my classes /
I’ve come a long way since then who’da thought it? /
Probably my parents, always been mad supportive /
I’m lucky that way, not so many are though /
Me I’ll help you out if your car’s broke /
I’m always trying my best, to help those around me /
That way I seem to find peace or maybe it found me /
And until I leave the ground, free /
There’ll be a smile upon my face not a frown see…//

Chorus
I…wuntathought – getting heard was so difficult
I…wuntathought – everyone was so cynical
I…wuntathought – it would take a flipping miracle, to make something major out of something so minimal

I…wuntathought – that I’d still make the best of it
I…wuntathought – that I’d stop being a pessimist
I…wuntathought – one day would be so effortless, the next like climbing Everest

Addverse
Now this is not as easy as I once thought it would have been /
I’m kinda struggling to try and find the love within /
And yo, this is the thing /
I don’t know where to begin /
I just feel the pressure of it building up under my skin /
And when I get a flash of it, running through my habitat /
I just wanna grab at it, reel it in and pull it back /
That’s when you bump the track – I got a vibe to spit /
The theme tune’s to my life and I write the script /
Since age 5 I was like, “yeah, I got it sorted /
By 25 I’ll be signed and I’ll drive a Porsche” /
But even I was cautious /
And didn’t go for it /
Cos now I’m 26 and got a Peugeot to show for it /
Although I know I spit doper than the most of em /
I feel so close to thinking that I’m not supposed to win /
But still I won’t give in – I feel positive /
It’s impossible for me stop now – got the gist?! //

Chorus
