New single by MC Tarquinius, featuring Victoria Ferguson.
Everyday I wake up with this pressure pressing on me
Living up to expectations be the best I can be
When the bars set so high, Yo its hard to improve
You know I'm dying fighting in a war, I can't help but lose
In my shoes for a while, I invite you to tread
Taking steps in my direction, misconceptions you'll shed
But you'll never truly get it, No You'll never ever see,
Never truly understand This life, this life I must lead
Stood high on the shoulders of giants. Y'know The world it looks so small
On myself I'm left reliant. Such long long way to fall
No I'm not from the ghetto, never kicked it in a cell
Much more used to rolling meadows, than that rat-racing hell
Please don't think I've had it easy, had a whole heap of hard
Had to keep my wits about me, had to stay on my guard
Guarding from the phonies, fakers and the free wheelin friends
You know the kind to take advantage, always borrow, not lend
But money makes the world go round, you know that its true
And money can buy happiness, for me and for you
Stood high on the shoulders of giants, y'know The world it looks so small
On myself I'm left reliant, such long long way to fall
In my life there's been strife, had to deal with some woes,
Had to sleep alone at night, Yo when I run out of hoes
Had to sip on vintage bubbly, that was served up half chilled
And for my sister's birthday meal, I footed the bill
So feel lucky out on all these incidents you have missed
You want to hear some more examples, yo I'll give you the gist
When my driver died from smallpox, had to ride on a bus
But you mustn't judge begrudge me, yo for making a fuss.
You see the seats all smelt like piss, something that I could dismiss,
If a gang of backseat miscreants weren't shaking their wrists (what a wanker!)
Some old man smelt of biscuits, tinny beats blare behind
But no-one moves a muscle, not a soul seems to mind.
A child screams at its mother, and its mum screams right back
You better shut your fucking face, or I'm gon give it a smack!
This charming statement echoes from her mouth down the aisle
But the bus' vile contents simply sit there and smile
Too detached to react, barely raising a brow
I feel my hope in human kind and kindness die ...
Right ... about ... now.
