lyrics

(1)
Pen to paper, it's a deadly combination, swift /
with the strokes, ink covered scripts, catch a sudden glimpse /
Of how this stubborn minded, government despising kid /
Couples lines together manifested by the life he lives /

No time for cider swiggin', hanging round coz life's a bitch /
Unless your working hard for what you want, if not it's quits /
I'll never throw the towel in, fight until my force depletes /
And keep my discipline and self-respect the high priorities /

I'm tryna live my awkward dream the only way I know /
And float away with tones that capture my escapin' soul /
The many things that burn can turn you into summat new /
Don't let em all define you, but don't forget em either (true) /

Watch your plots and what you're scheming too /
Legal money's not the easy route / still at night I'm soundly sleeping through /
Different dreams to you; contented is the word I'd use /
We're far from millionaires but living proof

You can flourish though the systems rules are set up for you to flippin' lose /
You get taxed on what you earn, taxed on what you use /
Taxed on inheritance that's been taxed before /
Stacks of tax, and if you're poor and graft you get shafted more /

The rich aren't paying taxes, their banks are off the shore /
Meanwhile if you're not a brick in it, you're off the wall /
And soon they're after yours, why aren't you paying in /
That's when you realise the game you're playin's one you'll never win /

(2)
The same old JND, moaning 'bout another somethin' /
But what they're talking's nothing new an' always lacks the substance /
You can ask the public /
A small percentage give a damn and the rest of 'em don't listen to the words or subject /

It doesn't mean as much to them, though it should do /
Might be paying more than us but hardly feel the funds move /
And when the cards are dealt, you could lose /
Or decide it's just hoops you've got to jump through to make it, once you /

See it that way, it's a step into the right direction /
Is it contrived to mention wars or money spent on weapons /
While payday lenders take advantage turning some to peasants /
Gold shop's spending for your heirlooms, unburied treasures /

I know fast food's the cheapest meal at two for one /
But the NHS time bomb ticking's one that soon'll come /
The betting shops'll offer better odds than doctors will /
Our hearts are clogged with filth, never mind what's on the grill /

Assess the time you've got to fill /
Is watching telly what you want, all these polished images distort the real /
Sometimes it feel's we've caught the rawest deal /
Others need support but still they wonder why the desperate then are forced to steal /

I can see the day coming where the rich survive it /
And the poor can't afford the medicine to save their lives it's /
The Darwinism of the modern age /
Where those evolved often reign, and those oblivious have lost their way /
