The Road To Nothingness

lyrics

We worked long hours on the london streets
But din't work proper we were bunch of cheats
We drunk iced coffe and we done some sweets
We gamed air hockey and we won some treats

We parked on benches and we dossed in pubs
We worked for penny pinchers toxic mugs
They brought much trouble so we got them back
Ya push 'round tommy and e'll bob dead slack

My 'ed gets goosey when the nazis step
They point at corridors't ant been swept
Glee on ordering they love that push
And tom boy senses it's an eagles clutch

The freedom what e wants instead
It's monday mornin' and e stops in bed
E drills up theory on what might go
E won't earn money and the boss might blow

They might just sack 'im and e'll end up marred
They cut tom's credit and e'll end up jarred
The sweet old flat e's in e'll av to part
No more goodies in the tesco cart

But better to be dead than to fake it
Worse case scenario is e won't make it
E'll end up on the streets in a blanket
Will e still be chanting?

I'll still chant, even when the reaper's near
The road to nothingness it leads us here
The path go gritty as a basement floor
A fool ain't what they gonna take him for

I'll still chant, even when the reaper calls
The road to nothingness is tomboy's course
The path go gritty as a basement floor
A fool ain't what they gonna take him for

In this life of mine, i've seen the tragic
Went off the map for years I lost my sanity
They 'ad me in a room with injections
That's not the worst of it, though on reflection

Sectioned in bradford, darlington and hackney
Clacton on sea, dewsbury, halifax lastly
Until I saw it all clear vision
Learned that beliefs had caused the mental prison

And now I got a lot to share
Ya need tom's hand e hasn't got two spare
E's still there zoning on the nothingness road
E's peaced on beats and the drop's bestowed

Ya want advice I tell ya watch them thoughts
3 times least before ya drop them talks
Nuff with the stuff I must exit and close it
The road to nothingness controls me

I'll still chant, even when the reaper's near
The road to nothingness it leads us here
The path go gritty as a basement floor
A fool ain't what they gonna take him for

I'll still chant, even when the reaper calls
The road to nothingness is tomboy's course
The path go gritty as a basement floor
A fool ain't what they gonna take him for
