Lyrics:

i wont write a song about you – you ain’t worth it you’re the plague in my skin – i’m the vermin
you’re the judge and the jury -i knew the verdict you’re the blade in my hand but i’m the surgeon
cut clean my broken heart
need to make something new from these stolen parts destroy rebuild – broke in half
its the cigarette toke in the dark
inside screaming – lips hold a joke and a laugh
you’re so damn petty – focussing hard
trying to change my plot but you’re holding my arc got a target on my back and your throwing the darts you just like me cus i’m moody
one foot in – never too deep
breathe – good music and a movie
drink my blood give it to me

you’re my friend and enemy look to the mirror
no one is better than me say it out loud
dont put yourself down
no one is better than me

we sat shiva for my grandad
had biegals in my backpack
Arabic name they cant stand that
hours at the airport ransacked
four parts different im a mongrel
ten london accents on my tonsils
code switcher
toe dipper
you aint the sum of your parts mate you’re way bigger im missing bare puzzle pieces
lost luck muck and muzzle just covers my features out here tryna clock my meaning
sat strong too long with all the wrong teachers
this whole thing means more than the girl who left trace your lines you define who’s next
its all your story – beginning til death
every win every loss everything we kept

you’re my friend and enemy look to the mirror
no one is better than me say it out loud
dont put yourself down
no one is better than me
