about

If we forget to take stock of our presence in the present. What's the point of doing anything we do?

lyrics

LOOK I DON'T WANT MUCH
IF I'M BEING HONEST I ALREADY HAD A TOUCH IN LIFE
MY PARENTS ARE STILL HUSBAND AND WIFE
I'VE ALREADY DONE SO MUCH IN MY TIME
MUM SAYS THAT'S NOT ENOUGH I GOTTA SHINE
MUMMA TAKE TIME, I'M STILL REACHING MY PRIME
I DON'T WANNA GET TOO DEEP WITH THE RHYMES
LEMME KEEP STILL ON THE SEAT OF THIS BIKE!..
'COZ I DON'T WANNA GET BUM SORES
I CAN'T CONTROL WHAT'S GONNA HAPPEN IT'LL RUN COURSE
TOLD MAN YOU CAN'T FULLY TRUST IN A PLAN
ALL YOU CAN DO IS DO ALL THAT YOU CAN
...SO I'M STOOD HERE THINKING ALOUD
'COZ I GET DAYS WHEN I DON'T KNOW WHO I AM
START TO BEAT MYSELF UP THEN I REMIND MYSELF IT'S NORMAL
AND I'M ONLY A MAN

---

STOOD HERE THINKING ALOUD
WHAT AM I HERE TO DO, WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?
DO I WANNA GET MONEY, IF SO WHAT AMOUNT?
DO I WANT SO MUCH THAT I CAN'T COUNT?
HERE TRYING TO WORK OUT JUST WHAT I NEED
I THINK TRUTH BE TOLD I JUST WANNA BE
NOT SURE WHAT I WANT OR WHAT I NEED...
TRUTH BE TOLD I'VE JUST GOTTA BE

---

WOMEN IN MY LIFE DON'T GET THIS
THEY THINK I DON'T CARE 'COZ I DON'T SWEAT SHIT..
LIKE SAY I CAN'T SEE WHERE WRETCH IS
I DO MY TING, THEY DON'T HAVE TO RESPECT IT
WHAT'S MORE, THEY DON'T HAVE TO BELIEVE ME
I TRUST MYSELF, I AIN'T GONNA GET WEEPY
YOU DON'T TRUST ME IT'S ALL GOOD, LEAVE ME.
I'M A WORK HARD TILL I GET SLEEPY.
GOING SO HARD WHEN THEY CAN'T SEE ME
MIGHT BE THE REASON THEY RECKON I'M DREAMY
THIS AIN'T A GAME AND I AIN'T NO GENIE
I CAN ONLY DO MY BEST IN THE PRESENT..
TREAT THE FUTURE LIKE IT'S A PRESENT..
TRUE I DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT I'M GETTING
BEST CASE I CAN HAVE A FAINT IDEA
I CAN ONLY TRY TO MAKE MINE HERE

---

IF NOT BEING SURE IS A CRIME I'M GUILTY
I'M AN ANIMAL, I'M FILTHY
BUT I DON'T THINK THAT IT'S ALL THAT DEEP
DON'T SEE WHY YOU WANNA CALL THAT WEAK
I'M JUST BEING HONEST, SO FALL BACK PLEASE
NEVER DID SAY I DON'T WANNA MAKE Ps*
MAN KNOW I DON'T WANNA DROP BACK TO MY KNEES
I JUST DON'T WANNA BE PART OF ANY SLEAZE..
IF NOT BEING SURE IS A CRIME THEN JAIL ME
CHUCK AWAY THE KEY, DON'T BAIL ME
NO SWEAT, DON'T CHECK FOR ME, DON'T MAIL ME
YOU'RE BEST TO STEER CLEAR FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY!
SOUNDS MAD BUT IT'S HOW I FEEL LATELY
BEING UNSURE'S NOTHING LIKE BEING LAZY
SAYING THAT MAYBE IT IS AND I'M WRONG
SAME WAY AGAIN IF IT ISN'T I'M NOT


*Ps = money
