lyrics

Capture the perfect I'm getting flashes of nightmares
Contemplating quitting my day job a carer that's not there
Feeling suffocated shortness of breath like I need more air
That alone is confirmation that I'm wasted there
State of confusion a rabbit in head lights
Been struggling for a 16 as of late its been less vibes
That's when it hits me I'm designed for this
You know it takes more than a touch to get a feel of this
How can I say without sounding like a hypocrite
Only when I'm feeling cross is when I'm looking at the crucifix
Talk about the norm
I can really get used to this
Lack of resources and that's why we never used to dream
But now I seeing past the vision
I started believing
Take flight, ash cloud couldn't cover my vision
Last key on the bunch ,I'm the most needed
My ambition takes the wheel safe to say I'm more driven

(Chorus)
And I'm going places
Turn a blind eye when show me hatred
Starting to run out of numbers as I'm counting my blessing
Reasons I don't keep up appearances leave that to Hyacinth
This game is for the giants but I'm going in like David
To live a legacy Biggie and Pac and be the greatest
Blessings upon your gift may we for ever be creative
Not seeing us on the TV doesn't mean we haven't made it
We learn to appreciate having it all is just the basic

Capture the perfect picture this requires a canvas
A big frame El Greco and I aint even Spanish
Dreams of living outlandish Is what turned us to be writers
Freedom of expression escaping that depression
You can easily become addicted to sleeping tablets
The pressure, peer pressure to become something precious
In the midst of all that you learn you gonna be a parent
I'm still tryna find my feet being my parent's dependent
Everyone around me, progressing with their lives
I have nothing to show only my stories in rhymes
Scratching under surface for an itch of my purpose
Am destined for greatness do I really know what fame is
Tomorrow is not promised any day could be yours
Kings were once slaves and rookies became pro's
Never put my hands on keys but I know I struck a chord
Pause, grand national when I'm racing on course

Dialogue (Tanya)
I love my daddy my name is Tanya and I'm 4
Erm my daddy is really good singer
He is a really good singer because he has important words
He is brilliant
Byeeeee

(Chorus)
And I'm going places
Turn a blind eye when show me hatred
Starting to run out of numbers as I'm counting my blessing
Reasons I don't keep up appearances leave that to Hyacinth
This game is for the giants but I'm going in like David
To live a legacy Biggie and Pac and be the greatest
Greetings upon your gift may we for ever be creative
Not seeing us on the TV doesn't mean we haven't made it
We learn to appreciate having it all is just the basic

Guide was born in Zimbabwe but relocated to Clare, Ireland in his early teens. There he quickly developed a propensity for story-telling through rhymes and rhythm. These stories aren't something you can bring up in everyday conversations, but writing them down releases a sense of freedom, a catharsis, that he deems “essential.” ... more
