about

Originally started out as a demo for Aidy's 'Song A Week' project back in 2010.

lyrics

You got me thinking, my heart was sinking
But now I’m reeling, and these wounds are healing
I got by on looks till me confidence shook
And I watched everyday as they took everything that I had
You told me fifteen they, they told me fifteen
I, I walked in three as I smiled thru my teeth
I’ve got gold I can’t touch, if I take it I’m fucked
And I can’t use my name I’ve got no one to blame but myself
Oh no, I’ve seen the punches you throw
So motherfucker let’s go
So unreliable, cos it’s not viable
This was a field, now it’s all brick and steel
In a box I can’t touch, if I take it I must
I’ve got riches and gold and I’m not gonna fold, oh no
Oh no, I’ve seen the punches you throw
So motherfucker let’s go
Oh no, I’ve seen the punches you throw
So motherfucker let’s go
