2nd Exit Tangent

[Verse 1]
Hailing from the depths of somewhere past
Where time stood still and the sun sets fast
And folks drink til they've drunk their last drop
So they can forget truth starts and farce stops
And when the cards flop out on the table
Lessons digest like an Aesop fable
While many digress and others enable
Leaders sell out like a sweet shops staple
Hooked on the sugar slave to the nicotine
Peoples ideas of success is all limousines and diamonds
Everyday there's new violence
Dodge the sickle gene die by the siren
Catch the guillotine for breaking the silence
Live by the knife and fall to the social climbers
Who gives a crap about the climate
Cos we'll be long gone before we see the tide rise up
So dry your eyes don't cry for the amazon
Forget the rainforest save yourself the embarrassment
Forget the oceans you won't save the planet son
You don't have the pallet to handle the damage done
Best to stick to middle management
Keep the thoughts to a minimum and actions inanimate
And don't play the devil's advocate
Unless you want to be caged like all the animals

[Verse 2]
I remember dark days now man are blase
It was who aren't from the manor aren't safe
Now it's Peckham arcade and Matcha Lattes mate
One day I'll leave this planet can't wait
Til then stuck listening to rock and a hard place
There's too many losses I can't take
My breaks like watching a car chase
My arms raised it faces my aunt May
She said when you gonna find a viable career
I said I'm here I already hired all the gear
I already spent many nights fighting all the fear
I thought let me write you were biting off your peers
More than you can chew boring as the blues
Poor like beggars you're ignoring on the tubes
Cos you think they're all addicts cos you saw it on the news
But reporters on the shrooms so it's awkward in the room
Like about to be dad talking to the womb
It's awkward to assume I'm doom and gloom
Used to watch the Loony Toons now I notice all the racism
How soon he grew
While it permeates society and through these youths
So they're taking lives cos it's like who needs you?
And I know that hate divides but I ain't paying mind
Cos I got bills and doing what's right ain't paying mine
Fine guess I need to stay in line
