Last two weeks ive been out of my mind
****ed up issues taking up my time
Can’t be there for all that’s mine 
Neglect what’s right has been my crime
Feel like I’m a thousand miles

Babe says I lost my sense of humour
I just hide behind my armour 
Can’t bring a smile just more miles
Distant shadow is all I am 

Far to proud to accept help
Far to dumb to ask for it the same
You might not know my life story 
Of south London’s ****ed up glory
Its not much I can tell you now
Mistake after mistake I tell you now

(To my family stay together, be everything you want to be, and to the rest oh well!)

Maybe I am hard to reach I’m nothing less than screwed
Can’t think of much now 
But all else has failed so ill just sit back and ponder
This cruel world is where I wonder
Another night of distant thunder
See I can do rhyme 
Not just pain all of the time
I don’t need anyone to make me feel good
Just need someone to make me smile

So my friends my song now ends 
With me snapping in half my pen 
No more rhymes will I give you 
Just to pass the lonely time
I can not do this anymore
Or look into the sky so blue
Are you reaching out for me?
I`m not reaching out for you
