 (by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

Originally, Tricky was a member of the Wild Bunch, a Bristol-based rap troupe that eventually metamorphosed into Massive Attack during the early '90s. Tricky provided pivotal raps on Massive Attack's groundbreaking 1992 album, Blue Lines. The following year, he released his debut single, "Aftermath." Before he recorded "Aftermath," he met a teenage vocalist named Martina, who would become his full-time musical collaborator; all albums released under Tricky's name feature her contributions.

Tricky signed a contract with 4th & Broadway in 1994. The contract contained a clause which allowed him to release side projects under different names, in addition to regular Tricky releases. "Ponderosa" and "Overcome" were released over the course of 1994; that same year, he made a cameo on Massive Attack's second album, Protection. Tricky's debut album, Maxinquaye, appeared in the spring of 1995. Not only did the album receive overwhelmingly positive reviews when it was released, but it entered the U.K. charts at number two, despite the total lack of daytime radio airplay. Throughout 1995, Tricky was omnipresent in the U.K., collaborating with and remixing for a wide variety of artists, including Björk, Luscious Jackson, and Whale. In the fall of 1995, he released Tricky vs. the Gravediggaz, a collaboration with the American hardcore rap group, as well as a single called "I Be the Prophet," which was released under the name Starving Souls. At the end of the year, Maxinquaye topped many year-end polls in Britain, including Melody Maker and NME.

In February of 1996, Nearly God -- an album featuring Tricky's collaborations with artists as diverse as Terry Hall, Björk, Alison Moyet, and Neneh Cherry -- was released, again to strong reviews; the album was released in the U.S. six months later. After completing the second full-fledged Tricky album, he relocated to New York City early in 1996 where he began working with underground rappers. An EP called Grassroots was released in the U.S. in September. Two months later, Tricky's official second album, Pre-Millennium Tension, was released. Again, Tricky received positive reviews, though there were a few dissenting opinions.

In addition to his three releases of 1996, he remixed artists as diverse as Elvis Costello, Garbage, Yoko Ono, and Bush. Tricky's next full-length solo effort, Angels With Dirty Faces, appeared in 1998, followed a year later by Juxtapose, a collaboration with Cypress Hill's DJ Muggs and DMX's Grease. In 2001, Tricky returned with the Mission Accomplished EP, which was released by the Epitaph subsidiary label Anti. Blowback, his first for Hollywood Records, appeared later that June and included various collaborations with Hawkman, Live's Ed Kowalczyk, and Red Hot Chili Peppers' Anthony Kiedis and John Frusciante. Increasingly aware of his brooding persona in the media and annoyed that popular music magazines had started labeling him "the Dark Prince," in 2003, he made Vulnerable as an attempt to expose himself as a more accessible artist. The same year, the Back to Mine label released an album of remixes that he compiled, before he took a five-year hiatus from recording new material. Knowle West Boy, his most critically acclaimed recording since Pre-Millennium Tension, marked a strong return by the trip-hop pioneer in 2008, and Tricky toured for a solid year behind it. In August of 2010, he emerged with the single "Murder Weapon" a reworking of Echo Minott's '90s-era dancehall hit that obsessed him. Following in the tradition of his infamous read of Public Enemy's "Black Steel" with backing vocalist Martina Topley-Bird, "Murder Weapon," like its precursor, also featured a female voice, in this case, Irish-Italian singer Franky Riley, one of his backing vocalists on the road. Tricky followed the single with the album Mixed Race later that fall. Unhappy with Domino Records, he started his own False Idols label for the release of his tenth solo album, also named False Idols.

Overcome

Martina :
You sure you want to be with me?
I've nothing to give.
Won't lie and say this loving's best
Whoa, leave us in emotional peace
Mmm, take a walk take a rest, a taste of this.

Don't wanna be on top of your list,
Monopoly improperly kissed
We overcome in sixty seconds the strength we had together.
But for now, emotional ties they stay severed.
And when there's trust there'll be treats
When we funk we'll hear beats.

Karmacoma X7

You and her, walking through the suburbs
No, not exactly lovers
You're a couple, 'specially when your bodies double.
Duplicate and then you wait
For the next Kuwait.

Karmacoma X6
Jamaican aroma, karmacoma

You sure you want to be with me? I've nothing to give.
Won't lie and say this loving's best
Whoa, leave us in emotional peace
Mmm, take a walk take a rest, a taste of this.

Don't wanna be on top of your list,
Monopoly improperly kissed
Overcome in sixty seconds the strength we had together.
But for now, emotional ties they stay severed.
And when there's trust there'll be treats
When we funk we'll hear beats.

Ponderosa

Martina :
The place where... X6

Tricky:
...Where I stand

Martina:
The place where I stand gives way to liquid lino
Underneath the weeping willow lies a weeping wino
The place where I stand gives way to liquid lino
Underneath the weeping willow lies a weeping wino

Tricky:
Uhh...

Martina:
The mighty crowd-

Martina and Tricky:
Search for their spaces

Martina:
And turn around time's gone-

Martina and Tricky:
Take ten paces.

Martina:
Been up ahead -

Martina and Tricky:
Can't make head or tail of it

Martina:
I drink till I'm drunk-

Martina and Tricky:
And I smoke till I'm senseless.


Martina:

You see in black and white

Martina and Tricky:
Feel in slow motion

Martina:
I drown myself in sorrow

Martina and Tricky:
Until I wake up tomorrow.
The illusion of confusion 

Martina:
It's not from where I am sat 

Tricky :
Recircle recycle resemble me

Martina :
Different levels of the devil's company


Tricky:

Yeah x3

Martina:
They lead us outside-


Martina and Tricky:
Take us out quietly

Martina:
To the cage through the bars


Martina and Tricky:

You see scars-results of my rage

Martina:
The place where I stand gives way to liquid lino 
(gives way to)
Underneath the weeping willow lies a weeping whino
(underneath the...there lies a weeping)
The place where I stand gives way to liquid lino
(the place where...gives...liquid)
Underneath the weeping willow lies a weeping whino
(underneath the...there lies a weeping)

The mighty crowd search for their spaces
(the illusion of confusion...search for...)
And turn around time's gone, I take ten paces.
(turn around...gone, i take ten paces)
Been up ahead - can't make head or tail of it
(can't make head or tail of it)
I drink 'till I'm drunk, and I smoke till I'm senseless.
(I smoke, I smoke, I smoke)

You see in black and white, feel in slow motion,
(feel in slow slow motion, and drown drown myself in sorrow)
I drown myself in sorrow, until I wake up tomorrow
(till i wake up tomorrow, the illusion of, the illusion of)
I drown myself in sorrow, until I wake up tomorrow
(the illusion of, the illusion of)
I drown myself in, I drown myself in 
(the illusion of...until I, until I wake up tomorrow)
The illusion of confusion is not from where I am sat
(it's not from where I'm...circle)

Black steel

Martina :
I got a letter from the government
The other day
Opened it and read it
It said they were suckers
They wanted me for their army or whatever
Picture me givin' a damn, I said never
Here is a land that never gave a damn
About a brother like myself
Because I never did
I wasn't wit' it, but just that very minute...
It occurred to me
The suckers had authority
Cold sweatin' as I dwell in my cell
How long has it been?
They got me sittin' in the state pen
I gotta get out, but that thought was thought before
I contemplated a plan on the cell floor
I'm not a fugitive on the run
But a brother like me begun, to be another one
Public enemy servin' time, they drew the line y'all
They criticize me for some crime

I got a letter, I got a letter, I got a letter
Picture me given' a damn, I said never
Mmm...mmm...mmm

I'm not a fugitive on the run

Tricky :
Many switch in, switch on, switch off X5

Martina :
Nevertheless they could not understand
That I'm a black man, and I could never be a veteran.
On the strength of situations, I'm real.
I got a raw deal, so I'm lookin' for the steel
Looking for the steel.

Hell is round the corner

Tricky :
I stand firm for a soil
I l
ick a rock off foil
So reduce me, seduce me,
Dress me up in Stüssy.
Hell is round the corner where I shelter.
Isms and schisms, we're living on a skelter
If you believe I'll deceive common sense says you are thief
Let me take you down the corridors of my life.

Tricky and Martina:
And when you walk, do you walk to your preference
No need to answer 'till...

Tricky:
I take further evidence.
I seem to need a reference to get residence
A reference to your preference to say,
I'm a good neighbour, I trudge,
So judge me for my labour,
Lobotomy ensures my good behavior
The constant struggle ensures my insanity.
Passing the indifference ensures the struggle for my family
We're hungry, beware of our appetite.
Distant drums bring the news of a kill tonight.
The kill which I share with my passengers.
We take our fill, take our fill, take a feel.

I stand firm for a soil
I lick a rock off foil
So reduce me, seduce me,
Dress me up in Stüssy.
Confused by different memories,
Details of Asian remedies
Conversations, of what's become of enemies.
My brain thinks bomb-like,
So I listen he's a calm type.
As I grow
And as I grow, I grow collective.
Before the move sit on the perspective.
Mr. Quail's in the crevice
And watches from the precipice.
Imperial passage.
Heat from the sun someday slowly passes,
Until then, you have to live with yourself
Until then, you have to live with yourself
I stand firm for a soil
Lick a rock off foil
So reducee me, seduce me,
Dress me up in Stüssy.

Martina :
Hell is round the corner where I shelter.
Isms and schisms, we're living a skelter
If you believe I'll deceive and common sense says you are the thief
Let me take you down the corridors.

Tricky :
My brain thinks bomb-like, bomb-like
My brain thinks bomb-like, bomb-like, bomb-like
My brain thinks bomb-like,
Beware of our appetite.

*** A BIG thanx to Kitty for this one it's the official lyrics written by tricky ! ***

Pumpkin

Alison Goldfrapp:
Pumpkin
You're hollow within
More how I'm to slowly 
let their harm
Give us some
It's sad until
Like flowers untamed
Shine out ends
I find what will make him
Love me
Life is our find
Hollow is he

Tricky: 
I can't breathe and I can't see
MTV moves too fast, I refuse to understand
You go your way and I'll see mine
Feels like wasted time
And it feels like I must be blind
How'd you like yourself? 
You don't know yourself

Alison Goldfrapp:
To a hollow kind,don't mind
Love is some of you
Don't dabble in fall of failure 
How bad,ooh,ooh

Tricky and Alison Goldfrapp: 
I smell of she and I fail to be
Well anyway,well anyway,well anyway 

Alison Goldfrapp:
See how high
Go on

Tricky:
I can't see and I can't breathe
I can't see and I can't breathe
I can't see and I can't breathe
I can't see and I can't breathe 
Well anyway, well anyway

Aftermath

Martina :
The world revolves for,for someone
For him, for she
The world revolves for, for someone
For him for me

Martina & Tricky :

Your eyes resemble mine, you see as no others can
Here inherit my kingdom, speak of our people's plan
I'll be here for my baby, for my baby I'll be near
So many things I need to tell you, things she needs to hear

Martina :
So this is the aftermath

Tricky :
Your eyes resemble mine, you see as no others can
Here inherit my kingdom, speak of our people's plan
I'll be here for my baby, for my baby I'll be near
So many things I need to tell you

Martina :
The world revolves for,for someone
For him, for she

How can I be sure
In a world that's constantly changing
How can I be sure

In a world that's constantly changing
How can, how can I be sure
( Backward vocals )

Just when I thought I was winning
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
Just when I thought I was winning
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
How can I be sure?

Abbaon fat tracks

Tricky and Martina:
Fuck you in, tuck you in, suck you in

"Then you fly
You fly as fast as you can to baby Jesus!" 
(from the film The Rapture)

I am she,mistakes of men
Gritted teeth, fists are clutching,
Breast stroke, lots of touching
See you in the sauna
There'll be a big foreigner at my
Hotel, motel, hotel, motel

I fuck you in the ass, just for a laugh
With the quick speed, I'll make your nose bleed
I ride the pre-menstrual cycle
Forget about Michael
Now here's the big blast, I like the big catch
I'll spray you straight through 
I spray your daydreams 

Enjoy myself, within myself 
And back again, encouraging sin, a powerful mind
Devious mind for a devious kind 
Ugly noises and strange ways by the two praise

I roll up the blue bills
I snort the cheap thrills 

*** Thanx to Elliott and Mara who corrected some mistakes on this one ***

Brand new you're retro

Tricky :
We know, yes we know
It's my ego on fantastic.
But still, you're fuckin' with my plastic
Dedicated, medicated,
They bend and break me
Overrate me
I take a small piece and make it breathe
It takes a second for a record sucka niggas won't believe
They stress me, test me, vex me
So what, you got a gun?
That shit don't impress me
Yes yes you always walks with the crew
You'd better back the fuck up 'cause you're not alone
You're a motherfucker 'cause you're not alone
If you don't think i'm a brother, then check my chromosome
Brand new, you're retro
I already passed you on a one-two
I've been cued to this already
Bullet to the head.
Bullet to the head, what you know I's joking?
What the fuck are you doin'?
You come to represent my attention?
You need more than a mic and a mention.
Through the scars you see bars
Through the bars you see scars results of my rage.
Brand new, you're retro. (x3)

Martina :
Scared to skip and step in case you trip and fall
Thunder picks you up, slaps you on the wall
That's maniacal, I cuff through my manocle
Mechanical and super-natty
Love is not talk, I walk on by
Exotic spices
If your mouth can't tame the meaning
Be careful of the faces you're seeing
A dread of the past and fear of the future
That's maniacal, I cuff through my manocle
Mechanical and super-natty

Tricky :
Brand new, you're retro X3
Brand new, you're retro X3
Bullet to the head, what you know I's joking?
What the fuck are you doin'?
You come to represent my attention?
You need more than a mic and a mention.
Through the scars you see bars
Through the bars you see scars results of my rage.
Brand new, you're retro. (x3)
Brand new, you're retro. (x3)
Brand new, you're retro. (x3)
Brand new, you're retro. (x3)

Suffocated love

Tricky:
It's too good
It's too nice
She makes me finish too quick
Is it love?
No not love
She turns me sexual tricks
She says she's mine, i know she lies
First, i scream, then i cry.
You take a second of me
You beckon, i'll bleed
She suffocates me
She suffocates me with suggestions
I asked 'do you feel the same?'
And later on, maybe
I'll tell you my real name
She's so good, she's so bad
You understand, I can't expand
Ahah, now I could just kill a man
She's on her knees, i say please
I cross her city lines, she's got brown eyes

Martina:
I think ahead of you, i think instead of you
Will you spend your life with me
And stifle me?
I know why the caged bird sings, i know why...

Tricky:
Forgive and you're forgiven
Kingdom come
Can you wait for yours, i need to taste some
Life's really funny, i laugh while she spends my money
She's my freak
I guess i'm weak
You ask what is this?
Mind your business
I pass my idle days with my idle ways
'Til the twelfth of always
She walks my hallways
I keep her warm, but we never kiss
She cuts my slender wrists
Let's waste some more time
I sign the dotted line
A different level
She-devil

Martina:
I think ahead of you, i think instead of you
Will you spend your life with me
And stifle me?
I know why the caged bird sings, i know why...

Tricky:
You ask what is this?
Mind your business
I pass my idle days with my idle ways
'Til the twelfth of always
She walks my hallways
I keep her warm but we never kiss
She says i'm weak and immature
But it's cool
I know what money's for.
Push comes to shove,
Her tongue's her favourite weapon on attack
I slap her back, she mostly hates me.

Martina:
I think ahead of you, i think instead of you
Will you spend your life with me
And stifle me?
I know why the caged bird sings, i know why

Tricky:
Can i take off your clothes
Before we go out
And when you're helpless, i'll scream and shout
We finish everyday
Well, anyway
Sixty-nine degrees
My head's between your knees.
You ask what is this?
Mind your business
It's too good
It's too nice
She makes me finish too quick
Is it love?
No not love
She turns me sexual tricks
She says she's mine, i know she lies
First, i scream, then i cry.
Take a second of me
You beckon, i'll bleed
Take a second of me

Martina:
I think ahead of you, i think instead of you
Will you spend your life with me
And stifle me?
I know why the caged bird sings, i know why X2

You don't

Ragga :
I fight evil with evil
I fight evil with evil
Believe me how you found me
Take away my self-esteem
Anytime you're ready

Tricky :
You don't, you don't
You don't, you don't
You don't, you you don't you don't wanna even try

Ragga :
I sleep, but gets no rest.
You scheme, but gods know best.
Second trying, I was actually dying, ohohoh!
When you drown in your devil's music
I did every need to use it.

Tricky :
You don't, you don't
You don't, you don't
You don't, you you don't you don't wanna even try

Ragga :
Trust you if you're trustful
Use you if you're useful
Really smooth, really evil
And if you're here, and that is the reason.
Giant strides, twelve tribes
It takes a second to wreck it
Sixty seconds, forget it
I guess you dont hear me though

Tricky :
You don't, you don't
You don't, you don't
you don't, you you don't wanna even try

Ragga :
I guess you dont hear me though,
I'm not looking yours, I'm looking mine
Looking so quiet but discreet
Echoes to see
On an unsuggested stream, unsuggested mean
Take it to the top, unstable the times
Unstable the walk
Unbearable, searable, popular demand
>From cradle to grave is Abel buried a man
With my moneys and the felons, we conquer a clearance
Building extensions of potential
But I guess you don't hear me though

Tricky :
You don't, you don't
You don't, you don't
You don't, you you don't you don't wanna even try

Ragga :
You don't, you don't
You don't, you don't
Even wanna try

Tricky :
You don't, you don't
You don't, you don't
You don't, you you don't you don't wanna even try

Ragga :
oohhh ahhh
You don't, you don't
You don't, you you don't
Even wanna try

Tricky :
You don't, you don't
You don't, you don't
You don't, you you don't you don't wanna even try

Ragga :
Hmmmm


Strugglin'

Tricky :
Because, in, in hell i'll be lost in the layers of weakness
All around the surface brainwashed with the cheapest
Strugglin...strugglin...strugglin
Brainwashed with the

Exhausted by the mundane
Simplicity no longer plain

Do you...do you...have you...have you ever had to struggle?
Strugglin...strugglin
Roll with the bullets to survive
Strugglin...strugglin...strugglin to remain
They label me insane
But i'm...i'm...i think i'm more normal than most
Strugglin with the remains
Brainwashed with the cheapest
And if pain makes me stronger
Then how am i stronger?
There's a fate for the late
But the late must wait longer
Strugglin...strugglin
Roll with the bullets to survive
Self preservation keeps the crowd alive
Strugglin
In hell i'll be lost in the layers of weakness
All around the surface brainwashed with the cheapest
In hell i'll be lost in the layers of weakness
All around the surface brainwashed with the cheapest
Exhausted with the mundane
Simplicity means no longer plain
Strugglin with the insane
Darkness and warmth
The obvious and mysterious
Magical colors, mythical shadows
Half thought with no meaning
They label me insane X3


Feed me

Tricky:
Hey you, so whatcha gonna do
Unbearable, searable, popular demand
From cradle to grave, the simple diary of man
Unbearable, searable, popular demand
Unbearable, searable, popular demand
From cradle to grave, the simple diary of man
Unbearable, searable, popular demand

Martina:
How things are together we'll destroy
And then we can destroy what we are
Together we can build what we are when we dream the spirit free
We don't give praise, we take praise
So why are we?

Tricky:
Unbearable, searable, popular demand
From cradle to grave, the simple diary of man

Martina:
How things are together we'll destroy

Together we can build what we are when we dream the spirit free
We don't give praise, we take praise
So why are we?

Tricky:
Unbearable, searable, popular demand
From cradle to grave, this simple diary of man
Unbearable, searable, popular demand

Martina:
Feed me when I'm hungry
Drink me 'till I'm dry
The dream of yesterday becomes another lie
You feed me lies, distortion, the English disaster
No one's free from love for one master

Tricky:
Unbearable searable popular demand
From cradle to grave, the simple diary of man

Martina:
We found a new place to live where we're taught to grow strong
And strongly sensitive, it always sets the scenery
Colors leave only beauty, words and wine amongst the greenery
See how it is X2

The only lessons you teach us from a margin
They ask my origin
The only lessons you teach us from a margin
They ask my origin, it's a moral sin, it's a moral sin

Extract from crystal though nothing is clear
I despise you, damn you, dream you
I love you
But still nothing is clear
I think of when i found you
You keep on singin while I'm drowning
Down into that two-tone vision
I've been raised in this place
And now concrete is my religion

See how it is X4

The only lessons you teach us from a margin
You ask my origin
The only lessons you teach us from a margin
They ask my origin

The only lesson you teach us, wrong and right
You ask my origin
The only lesson you teach us, wrong and right
They ask my origin, it's a moral sin, it's a moral sin

Tattoo

( Siouxsie & the Banshees Cover / Hyaena LP )

Tricky:
Colour me, colour me

When you're sitting all alone
In the middle of the floor
There's something uncontrollable,
As you sit down watching the door
Colour me, colour me

I really feel ill, 
Tattoo you're bad side
Slap your thigh,
Slap your cuff
Sing your mantra,
Leave your walk,
Colour me, colour me

Something fierce along my spine
To scare the lovin' from behind
Fortify my arms 
Fortify my arms
Colour me, colour me

When you're sitting all alone in the middle of the floor,
There's something uncontrollable,
As you sit down watching the door
Colour me, colour me

I really feel ill, 
Tattoo you're bad side
Slap your thigh,
Slap your cuff
Sing your mantra,
Leave your walk,
Colour me, colour me

Something fits along my spine
To scare the lovin' from behind
Fortify my...
Fortify my...
Colour me, colour me
Colour me, colour me
Colour me

Something fits in the middle of the floor,
There's something uncontrollable,
You sit down watching the door
Colour me, colour me

I really feel ill, 
Tattoo you're bad side
Slap your thigh,
Slap your cuff 
Your mantra,
Leave your walk,
Colour me, colour me

Something fits along my spine
To scare the lovin' from behind
Fortify my arms 
Fortify my arms
Colour me, colour me

Poems

Tricky :
I can vibe to anything
Do I have to hide from everything?
Everybody wants a piece of me
Reach their origin and cease to be
Sit back and let it happen,
Let us take your time away.
I don't understand you.
I don't want your time of day.
If you're gonna walk, might as well walk your way
Always walk the hallways,
Forget the punk, I pack the funk.
I'm gonna take a piece of you.
Making money for good health,
But first I learn to see myself
But first I learn to see myself
You promised me poems
You promised me poems
You promised me poems

Terry Hall :
I ruse the day that I ever met you,
And deeply regret you getting close to me.
I cannot wait to deeply neglect you,
Deeply forget you, Jesus believe me
You promised me poems.
You might have been my reason for livin'
I gave up on givin', gave up everything.
We were a right pair of believers
A couple of dreamers,
So how come you hate me?
You promised me poems
You promised me poems
You promised me poems
Promised me poems

Martina :
Dreamed of ringing voices,
And contemplated choices.
Taste like a real kiss,
To heighten my awareness.
With all fairness, greatness with gratitude.
And simply riled with attitude
Now do promotion on TV, and ya still can't see.
We're down the hill cascade
And keep away the masquerade,
Dreamed of ringing voices,
And you promised me poems
You promised me poems
You promised me poems
You promised me poems

*** Thanx a lot to Elliot for this one ***

Together now

Into the morning
Got me through the night
I've seen the light
I see the light
I live of what I need
I've got greed
I've been a sinner for as long as I know
So help me understand
The little that I know
Shadow dancing with my spirit
Got to face your demon on your own
Take my body and put it through the dust
I've been buried in the crust
Together now
So help me understand
The little that I know
Together now, together now
It's us now, It's us now
And there's them, and there's them
And should we start again
Together now, together now
It's us now, it's us now...
The descendants of Christ
And it's you
Will you help me I'm confused
What you gonna do
With the little that I know
With the little that I got
We're together now, we're together
It's us now
And there's them, and there's them
And should we start again
Together now, together now
It's us now, it's us now...

Black coffee

One, one, two
One, one, two
Move over, move over
Yeah you heard what I said, move over


I feel so lonely
Haven't slept a wink
I walk the floor
And watch the door
And in between I drink
Black coffee

Love's a hand-me-down brew
I'll never know a sunday
In this weekday room
I'm talking to the shadows
One o'clock till four
And Lord how slow the moments go
All I do is pour
Black coffee

Since the blues caught my eye
I'm hanging out on Monday
My Sunday dreams too dry
They say a man is born to go a lovin'
And a woman is born to weep and fret
To stay at home
And drown her past regrets
In coffee and cigarettes
I'm moody all the morning
Moody all night
And in between I drink
Black coffee
Black coffee

Bubbles

Terry Hall :
The first hundred years are the toughest
On this bubble
An open sky, flying high
Take a bride, get some trouble

Tricky : 
The first one will do
I'm just passing through
The second one needs more
I've been here before 
I've been here before
I've been here before

Terry Hall :
Springtime falls, summer calls
You slip and slide until you hit december
Believe my eyes, they'll bleed you dry
If I wasn't a genius
I'd lose my temper

Tricky : 
The first one will do
Just passing through
The second one needs more
I've been here before
I've been here before
Wanna make me weak while you cry
It's not such a thing,because still you die
Gotta go I get high 
Gotta go I get high
Deceiver deceived us
And I deceived them
Carry my troubles home
Married with the humble home

Terry Hall :
The first hundred years are the toughest
on getting smothered
Life is just one bloody thing
After another

I sing for you

Cath Coffey:
We're the only ones here so speak your mind,

There's nothing to fear but fear itself, 
If you know how to look inside yourself.
I sing for you.

Forget all you learned from yesterday,
If you learn how to change, you'll change today.
I sing for you, so you can find your way home.
I pray for you.

And I breathe aside my impurities,
But I can't take your insecurities.
If you trust, then trust me now.
Can you trust?

Cath Coffey and Dedi Madden:
Round and round together, round and round forever.
Pray for me, pray for me so I can find my way home.

Leave me now, so I can be alone.
Can you be alone?

Yoga

Tricky and Bjork:

Don't hold me
(I'm no mystic)
Don't fuck with me
(She treats my 'tistic')
Just do it
(A 'tastic')
Yoga-all,I leave it after you
(Now I'm feeling fantastic)
I'll find how to get after you
(And I will do for you)
I don't chance it
(And I will do for you)
All the pieces
I don't-yoga
All the people in colleauge with me

Don't hold me now
(I'm no mystic)
Don't fuck with me
(She treats my 'tistic')
I can want it
(A tastic')
I'll slide around in seconds
(Now I'm feeling fantastic)
I'll slide around and solve me
(And I will do for you)
I don't chance it
(And I will do for you)
I don't need the love to dance it
I don't chance it
I don't chance,at least the love's here

Just do it
(I'm no mystic)
Don't fuck with me
(She treats my 'tistic')
Don't hold me now
(A tastic')
I'm jumpy
(Now I'm feeling fantastic)
I'll stay and leave there
(And I will do for you)
May though you come and leave there
(And I will do for you)
I don't share it
Yoga after I go
and leave the lair
I'll send light-this sad soul laments
It can tell that I love,so I waste

Judas

 Tricky and Martina:

Is simplicity best
Or simply the easiest
The narrowest path
Is always the holiest
So walk on bare feet for me
Suffer some misery
If you want my love 
If you want my love

Man will survive
The harshest conditions
And stay alive
Through difficult conditions
So make up your mind for me
Walk the line for me
If you want my love 
If you want my love

Idle talk
And idle promises
Cheating Judases
Doubting Thomases
Don't just stand there and shout it
Do something about it
You can fulfill
Your wildest ambitions
And I'm sure you will
Lose your inhibitions
So open yourself for me
Risk your health for me
If you want my love 
If you want my love
If you want my love
If you want my love

*** Thanx a lot to Elliot for this one ***

Children's story

( Slick Rick Cover )

Martina:

Once upon a time not long ago
When people wore pajamas and lived life slow
When laws were stern and justice stood
And people were behavin' like they're oughta good
There lived a little boy who was misled
By another little boy and this is what he said:
"Me and you tonight are gonna make some cash
Robbin' old folks and makin' the dash."
They did the job, money came with ease
But one couldn't stop, it's like he had a disease
He robbed another and another a sister and a brother
Tried to rob a man who was a duty undercover
The cop grabbed his arm, he started acting erratic
He said "Keep still, boy, no need for static"
Punched him in his belly and he gave him a slap
But little did he know the little boy was strapped
The kid pulled out the gun, he said "Why'd ya hit me?"
The barrel was set straight for the cop's kidney
The cop got scared, the kid, he starts to figure
"I'll do years if I pull this trigger"
So he cold dashed and ran around the block
Cop radios it to another lady cop
He ran by a tree, there he saw the sister
A shot for the head, he shot back but he missed her
Looked around due to expectations
So he decided he'd head for the subway stations
But she was coming and he made a left
He was runnin' top speed till he was out of breath
Knocked an old man down and swore he killed him
Then he made his move to an abandoned building
Ran up the stairs up to the top floor
Opened up the door there, guess who he saw?
Dave the dope fiend shootin' dope
Who don't know the meaning of water nor soap
He said "I need bullets, hurry up, run!"
The dope fiend brought back a spanking shotgun
He went outside but there was cops all over
Then he dipped into a car, a stolen Nova
Raced up the block doing 83
Crashed into a tree near a university
Escaped alive though the car was battered
Rat-a-tat-tatted and all the cops scattered
Ran out of bullets and still he had static
Grabbed a pregnant lady, got out the automatic
Pointed at her head and he said the gun was full o'lead
He told the cops "Back off or the honey here's dead"
Deep in his heart he knew he was wrong
So he let the lady go and he starts to run on
Sirens sounded, he seemed astounded
Before long the little boy got surrounded
He dropped the gun, so went the glory
And this is the way I have to end this story
He was only seventeen, in a madman's dream
The cops shot the kid, I still hear him scream
This ain't funny so don't ya dare laugh
Just another case 'bout the wrong path
Straight and narrow while your soul gets cash

Pre-Millennium Tension

Official Lyrics !!!! ( except Ghetto Youth )
Thanx a lot to Alessio who send me the Japanese Booklet
& me who listened again to each song and corrected the mistakes !!

Vent

Tricky:
She's the one makes me feel these ways
He's the one need sun rays
Can't stand to feel
Hate to feel
Gone insane
High jack a plane
Don't push me 'cause I'm close to the edge
Trying hard not to loose my head
Can't hardly breathe
I've been and seen
She hides my Ventolin
Can't hardly breathe 
Can't hardly breathe 
Can't hardly breathe 

Martina:
( I'm the one ), I'm the one
( Who hides his medicine ), Who hides his medicine
( Watch him stop breathe ), Watch him stop breathe
( Watch him bleed ), Watch him bleed
( I right the wrongs and take his songs ), I right the wrongs and take his song
( And we all live happy ever after ), And we all live happy ever after
( Can't hardly breathe ), Can't hardly breathe 
Can't hardly breathe 
Can't hardly breathe 
Can't hardly breathe 
And we all sing together now
Can't hardly breathe 

Christiansands

Tricky:
My defences

Tricky & Martina :
Become fences

Tricky:
Now I'm stumbling

Tricky & Martina :
I change my face up
And if you think i'm fake up
Wait around till I take off my make-up
Here we go again
I meet another one
Her name is
She looks at me
Says I'm the only one

Martina :
I met a Christian in Christiansands
And a devil in Helsinki
I met a Christian in Christiansands
And a devil in Helsinki

Tricky:
Is it getting better?

Tricky & Martina :
Wrote her a letter
Asking questions
Baby steps in sections
I mean we'll take it slow
I really don't know
When you talk
You make me cringe
Silver means to the messenger
I let her go don't question her

Martina :
I met a Christian in Christiansands
And a devil in Helsinki
I met a Christian in Christiansands
And a devil in Helsinki

Tricky:
You and me, what does that mean?
Always, what does that mean?
Forever, what does that mean?
It means we'll manage
I'll master your language
And in the mean time I'll create my own
Buy my own

It means we'll manage
I'll master your language
And in the mean time I'll create my own

You and me, what does that mean?
Always, what does that mean?
Forever, what does that mean?
Always, what does that mean?
Forever, what does that mean?
It means we'll manage
I'll master your language
And in the meantime I'll create my own

It means we'll manage
I'll master your language
And in the meantime I'll create my own

It means we'll manage
I'll master your language
And in the meantime
It means we'll manage
I'll master your language
And in the meantime I'll create my own

You and me, what does that mean?
Always, what does that mean?
Forever, what does that mean?
It means we'll manage
I'll master your language
And in the meantime I'll create my own

It means we'll manage
I'll master your language
And in the meantime I'll create my own
It means we'll manage
I'll master your language

Bad dreams

 This is a matter of utmost urgency
You might even call it a policy emergency
Suckers got ill when they finally heard that you
Wasn't sellin' out, they tried to murder me
Reached for my Jenny like a troops supposed to do
Never let a sucker get too close to you
Heard 'em comin' up behind the wall
They saw the whites of his eyes, the first one had to fall
Another burn creeped up the fire escape
Trying to sneak, I guess he snuck too late
Lookin' like a scene from Real Life Vice
So when his head fell apart like a block of solid ice
Him easy does it, come to think of it
Deep paranoid but his wasn't as fast as mine
I heard the phone ring, should I answer?
This is gettin' serious as terminal cancer

And that is the final stage, my primal rage
Began to rise and I started to fantasize
How many more might try to rush the door
And grass their warrior, hell, I ain't stayin'
I opened the back door and felt the sunlight
Summer night heat saw a bunch of bulbs
Wearin' white sheets, what else could it mean ?
I know it ain't Halloween
The cross in the background burnin' made an ill scene
First I was panicky, then I was angry
Funky people had a rope ready to hang me
Now who am I supposed to be? Eddie Spagetti?
You come Vic Rob G. anytime you're ready?
Fuck that, they had me trapped so I rushed back
They tried to bust me but they don't have enough caps
I dipped, dived, slipped, slid, they missed me
I had to move quick or they was bound to get me
One bullet grazed me, that didn't faze me
What could I say? I was havin' a fucked up day
Stood and took aim, my finger on the trigger
I shouted "Now let me hear you say nigger!"
Well anyway, nobody spoke I went for a broke
The place was all clouded up from gun smoke
Then everything got quite, I don't buy it

A second ago we had a riot
They must be plannin' attack or settin' a trap
Whatever the case you won't get this black
Now I'm on the edge and there's no denyin' it
Whatever the hell might work I'm tryin' it
Thought I was a target but they could get right quite
But I ain't goin' out like no statistic
Another number, made me wonder
How many other brothers they put under
I sat in the dark real still for a long time
Didn't make a sound cos I've got a strong mind
Made my way to the street, it was day break
Must've fallen asleep, but for Pete's sake
I didn't see the enemy trying to put an end to me
The night before, my finger trigger was sore
I went in the house to get a fresh clip
And then I woke up in shit
It's just a bad dream

Makes me wanna die

She makes me wanna die
Follow where Mary goes
Cherish the things she knows
Says if I change my stride
Then I fly

She makes me wanna die
Change my stride
Then I'll fly
Look to the sun
See me in psychic pollution
Walking on the moon
How could you dare?
Who do you think you are?
You're insignificant
A small piece, an ism
No more no less
You try to learn the Universe
Can't even converse in uni-verse
You know it's ironic
Smoking hydroponic

She makes me wanna die
And change my stride
Then I fly

She makes me wanna die
Follow where Mary goes
Cherish the things she knows
Says if I change my stride
Then I fly
And change my stride
Then I fly
Look to the sun
See me in psychic pollution
Walking on the moon
How could you dare?
Who do you think you are?
You're insignificant
A small piece, an ism
No more no less
You try to learn the universe
Can't even converse in uni-verse
You know

Sex drive

Tricky :
What you wanna do with your sex drive?
Wait for your soul to catch up with me
Conquer feed lay seed 
I talk to him
I want to lie
She looks at me
I wonder high
Wanna be rich and fat
How do I validate that? 
A man with my eyes makes me feel like a mouse
Do I retaliate and do that ?
Can I rest my head on your chest and dribble
You know the rules I squeeze you wriggle
Pain is somewhere on the line
Pain is somewhere on the line
It takes courage and strength to be single
When you get older your body won't move so good
You won't learn so quick
The best time for a relationship
I know this she-kid in Moscow
I said if you're in love let go of my hand now
The older i get the more confused i am 
The older i get the older i am
Damn it! Jesus
They want more players like Cyril Regis 
Damn it! Jesus
They want more players like Cyril Regis 

Martina :
Your paranoid so I walk with my head down
I dominate with a conflicting mind state
You hold the national wealth 
I get the, i get the national health
You told me i was the original gutter snipe
But really i'm the original Isrealite
I live in a ghetto forever after
So you manufacture the ghetto blaster
But i'm out now, i'm older
I don't carry music on my shoulder
You think i'm a wild Terrier
But I'm the one who can afford to live in your area

Tricky:
The more confused I am
The older I get, the older I am
Damn it! Jesus
They want more players like Cyril Regis 

Bad things

Choose me if,
I wish I didn't feel
I wanna do bad things and then we're one again
I wanna do bad in those movies
They say squeeze never pull it
Muscles wrapped around the bullet
Me here say your big broad and tall
Ok, let me make a phone call
I'd rather you float down the river sea
Voodoo he for fucking around with my privacy
I wish I didn't feel
I want to do bad things

And then we're one again X2
And then we're one again X2

I wanna do bad things in the movies
They never squeeze, never pull it
Muscles wrap round the bullet
Me here say your big broad and tall
Get at me, make a phone call
I'd rather you float down that river-sea
Voodoo he for fucking around with my privacy
Would you like to see me through be a winner?
I'd probably buy a brother dinner
I'd rather speak another language
You know she's my toasted sandwich
Be careful of food
She's egotistical
i'm rude
And it's all about me X2

My fucking name
I'm the one again
It's you to say i'm nice
Don't wanna ask twice
Wanna break those chains
Make the whole world know
Wanna break those chains
Make the whole world know my fucking name
And I break those chains
They don't wanna know my fucking name
And I'm born again
And it's you to say I'm nice
Don't wanna ask twice
Wanna give the poor riches
Why don't you stop saying bitches
Wanna be good
Wanna be a homeboy from the hood
Pretend I'm from America
and this is Blues
Chief of the Cherokee
Wanna break those chains
Make the whole world know my fucking name
And I'm one again
And I'm the one again
Its you to say I'm nice
Don't wanna ask twice
I'll giving the poor all the riches
I'll never just stop saying bitches
Wanna be good
Wanna be a homeboy from the hood
Pretend I'm from America
Pretend this is Blues
Chief of the Cherokee X3
I wish I didn't feel
I wanna do bad things
I wish I didn't feel
I wanna do bad things
And then we're one again X4
I wanna do bad in those movies
They say squeeze never pull it
Muscles, muscles wrapped around the bullet

Lyrics of fury

I waited ahh
This is a warning, you'd better void,
Poets are paranoid, DJ's destroyed,
'Cause I came back to attack religious spite
Strike like lightnin', It's quite frightenin'
But don't be afraid in the dark, in a park,
Not a scream or a cry, or a bark, more like a spark;
Temper like an alcoholic, muscles tighten up,
What's that lighten up, you see a cipher,
Suddenly you feel like you're in a horror flick,
You grab your heart and wish for tomorrow quick.
Music's a clue, when I come you're gone,
Apocalypse Now, when I come, you're gone.
Haven't you ever heard of a MC-murderer?
This is the death penalty,and I'm serving her
Death wish, so come on, step to this
Hysterical idea for a lyrical perfectionist
Friday the thirteenth, walking down Elm Street,
You come in my rhyme you get beat,
This is off limits, so your visions all blurry,
All you see is the meters of volume pumping
Lyrics of fury

Terror in the styles, never error-files,
They be unknown in exile
For those that oppose to be level or next to this
I ain't the devil and this ain't the exorcist.
Worse than a nightmare, you don't have to sleep a wink,
The pains the migraines every time you think,
Flashbacks into fear, you start to hear:
The R-A-K-I-M in your ear;
Then the beat is hysterical,
That make the Erical
Get the axe to chop the wax
Through the lyrical for madness fury and
Faces of death remain,
MC's decaying, 'cause they never stay,
The scene of a crime every night at the show,
The fate of a rhyme of a mike that you know,
There's only one capable, breaks-that unbreakable,
Melodies-unmakable, patterns unescapable,
Now hold on if you want the style I possess,
I bless the child, the earth, the god and bomb the rest,
For those who envy an MC it can be,
Hazardous to your health so be friendly,
A matter of life and death, just like a etch-a-sketch,
Shaking you clear, make you disappear, make the next,
After the ceremony, let the rhyme rest in peace,
If not, my soul'll release
The scene is recreated, reincarnated, updated, I'm glad you made it,
'Cause you're about to see a disaster recite,
A performance never again performed on a mike
Lyrics of fury.

My evil is strong

"Well I see it so much
( I see it so much ) I see it so much
( I see it so much ), I see it, I see it "

Tricky and Martina:
Before you test, know what's going on,
I've been around for long, my evil is strong
I lie awake and hate you,
Maybe that's strong enough to make you

One, Two, One, Two, Catch up
Before you test, know what's going on,
I've been around for long, my evil is strong
I lie awake and hate you,
Maybe that's strong enough to make you
Something happened-a car crash
Make you play with a weapon
A gun in your mouth, my voice in your mind

Two before you test, know what's going on,
I've been around for long, my evil is strong
I lie awake and hate you
Maybe that's enough to make you 
Something happened-a car crash
Make you play with a weapon
A gun in your mouth, my voice in your mind
Sleep and I'll find you,
Put my mind to, am I strong enough?
Watch me rock a thousand stage

My funny valentine, I don't find you funny
Seaside, the sunny, the fame, the money
Who am I to say, so you don't even wanto to be a
No, I can't say it, my mouth is like a...
Bitter sweet and twisted, deceitful like I'm gifted
Even Gods God's scared
Even Gods God's scared, men and the things we did
Making children, strong enough to take her one
Are you strong enough to take care of one?
I'm a work on it, pray on it, stay on it
I'm a work on it, pray on it and stay in it
I'm a work on it ,pray on it and stay in it
I'm a work on it, pray on it and stay in it

Something happened-a car crash
Make you play with a weapon
A gun in your mouth, my voice in your mind
Sleep and I'll find you, put my mind to, am I strong enough?
Watch me rock a fifty thousand stage
Cannot tell me, do you feel it?
Is this energy strong enough to work you like a blade?
I'm a work on it, pray on it, stay on it
I'm a work on it, pray on it and stay in it

My funny valentine, I don't find you funny
Seaside, the sunny, the fame, the money

Piano

To the noose, to the neck, to the boots, to the check
To the micic, to the psychic, to the circuit
To the games pains to blame
To the freedom, make it rain, make it same
Make it dance, not a chance, see her run
See her come, totaly cunning
She is dark heart, no soul, no soul
She is life line to the heartbeat
I can't feel the heartbeat
To the flowers, to the bunches,
To the lunches, to the punches

To the noose, to the neck, to the boots, to the check
To the micic, to the psychic, to the circuit

See her come, totaly cunning
She is dark heart, no soul, no soul
She is life line to the heartbeat
I can't feel the heartbeat
To the flowers, to the bunches,
To the lunches, to the punches

To the good, to the clean
And i'll be you're ugly
To the occasion, to the lie
We kiss beneath, bridge of sighs
Lots of moaning, until they home in
And they spoil it all

To the noose, to the neck, to the boost, to the check
To the micic, to the psychic, to the circuit
To the games pains to blame
To the freedom, make it rain, make it same
Make it dance, not a chance, see her run
See her come, totaly cunning
She is dark heart, no soul, no soul
She is life line to the heartbeat
Can't feel the heartbeat

Oh my lover
Don't you know that it's alright
You can love 
You can love me the same time
I grin and bear it
I grin and bear it
You can't compare it

Marathons of comparisons

The T-R-I-C-K-Y
You can't get close
Brag the I boast
What have I got to boast about

Ghetto traps didn't trap me, I got out

Standing in government lines
I take what's mines

Kill me with a quickness

You trample on my soul

I trust you over all
I trust you over all
Never come back
From the powers of desire
Yeah we know you do
I can see through you
I can't meet the expectations
Of these radio stations
'Cause I move in with different vibrations
With different vibrations
Different vibrations
Different vibrations
You kill me

False autograph
First my body
Now my corpse

Those men will break your bones,
Don't know how to build stable homes.
Those men will break your bones,
Don't know how to build stable homes.

Polly Jean Harvey :
Those men will break your bones,
Don't know how to build stable homes.

PJ Harvey & Tricky :
We loose our voice more each year,
Maybe we won't bring soon
Is there cancer in the throat ?
No stress

Polly Jean Harvey :
Maybe it's supposed to kill the success

PJ Harvey & Tricky :
Because success needs killing

Polly Jean Harvey :
Murder is media
False laugh,
Forged autograph,

PJ Harvey & Tricky :
First my body, now my corpse

Polly Jean Harvey :
Those men will break your bones,
Don't know how to build stable homes.
Alive is pain, Murder is fame,

PJ Harvey & Tricky :
And if you're famous you may get acquitted
If you did it

Polly Jean Harvey :
There's no where to runaway

PJ Harvey & Tricky :
Damn you I hope you pay

Polly Jean Harvey :
And finish the day to day
Games we play

Don't know how to build stable homes

Polly Jean Harvey :

PJ Harvey & Tricky :
And talk on the telephone

Polly Jean Harvey :
There's nothing in this world I want from you
Don't fool yourself, I won't cry...
You're too scared to live
Too quick to die

Those men will brake your bones
Don't know how to build stable homes

Those men will break your bones
Don't know how to build stable homes

6 minutes

Martina:
Six minutes- I'm on, six minutes- I'm on

Tricky:
It's a long way from Knowle West to Hollywood
I've never seen a triple beam
From L.A. to N.Y. I eat pork make 'em scream

Six minutes I'm on
I'm premenstrual I bleed because I'm not a vegetable
I'm on six minutes- I'm on
Lies don't suit me I think it's my duty to say I don't like guns
And in them comes spoil the rude boys funds
I'm resilian I don't just wanna make a million

And if the radio shows throw low blows
We do this with or without the air play
Life's a cycle forget about Michael
Life's a cycle forget about Michael
Watchin' you leadin', I'm tired of bleedin'
Watchin' you leadin', I'm tired,I'm bleedin'
I'm gonna take this time out for a promotional click
Durban Poison artist are the smartest
In this industry full of vomit
My voodoo make 'em sick
My voodoo make 'em sick
My voodoo make 'em sick

Tricky:
Now when people got a good thing they want to make it a bigger thing
Bullet proof from the truth
Now it's gone to far
And all the tough guys are dropping like flies
Like old styles and riches and snitches and those industry bitches
I hear they're taking over benches
To be high paid wenches

Forget the champaign at the bar you need A&R
Is this making music or make money?
I can't make my mind up
They think they're safe 'cause they're signed up
You're under contracts that brakes those backs
You brag and boast now look-a-here
I control my destiny
I control my career

Analyze me

Tricky:

Move to my lips
For all those who want to analyze me
For all those who want to analyze me
Start it off in the hips
Move to my lips

For all those who want to analyze me

My mother committed suicide when I was four or five
I love mike-o was killed by a psycho

But I'm not sad or sorry 'cause we be tomorrow
But I'm not sad or sorry 'cause we be tomorrow

Martina:
Will it be on hot land, on hot sand
Or maybe concrete corner - december
Red zones in my head phones
The devil's tools - inside us fools
The devil's tools - inside us fools
Love shall leave me alone
Love shall leave me alone
Love shall leave me alone
Love shall

Will it be on hot sand, on hot land
Or maybe a concrete corner - december
Red zones in my head phones
The devil's tools - inside us fools
The devil's tools
Love shall leave me alone
Love shall

Will it be on hot land, on hot sand
Will it be, will it be, 
Will it be on hot land, on hot sand
Or maybe a
Concrete corner - december
Red zones in my head phones

The moment I feared

Tricky:
Well I'm sittin on my lunch break, grinnin my teeth
It's the last day of the week, boy what a relief
My muscles kind of ache, they felt rigid and stiff
So I turned around, and I smoked this big fat spliff
Now I'm happy as can be I'm in this pothead spell
I put some eyedrops in my eyes so that no one can tell
Now It's 5:45 almost time for the bell
I'm back on the job, I don't bother no one
I keep strictly to my ways till my job is done
Now it's 5:45 it's time to have fun
I'm hangin out with a rapper, a kid named Don
We got more drunk than a skunk and happy as can be
We went, to the Latin Quarters and we got in free
Scoopin all the girls with my fly jewelry
'Cause I'm a fly brown brother and you can't school me
Boogie Down was performin hey they ain't no joke
And a bunch of Brooklyn kids was lookin all up my throat
Was it my big chains with the big words on 'em?
Then they rolled on me and told me to run em

This was the moment I feared...
"Yo take off your chains.."
This was the moment I feared...
"You need to take those chains off.."

I said, "They're really not real, they're just a front for the girls"
Then a whole bunch of fists just, caved in my world
I was in pain, so ashamed, I wish I never came
Had to pick up my face and go home on the train
Then I went to the park and bought me a thought
Then I went to the park, and I sat and I thought
I seen Danny Boy blue with his girl named Sarah
In one of their cars, I think it was a Valera
She called out to me, but, I really didn't hear her
So I went a little closer so I could a little clearer
She said, "You know where we're chillin'?
I said, "I know where that is, just next to my building"
I gave em the information and they I went on my way
Then I went home, and slept til two the next day
There was a knock on my door, I opened it, no quit!
It was Sarah standing there with a bag named Kit
She starts to use me and abuse me and at first I wasn't with it
Then we did it and we did it and we did it
She said it was great, she said she's glad we had done it
The elevator come and Danny Boy was on it

This was the moment I feared...
This was the moment I feared...

Well he was huffin and puffin and he swung at me -- word
So I pulled out my gat and I silenced the nerd
Then he was dead two in the head I took the cash and the Visa's
She said, "Everything's all right, just make sure nobody sees us"

Now I was rich as I was rich I could have whatever
would please me
Now I could wear real gold in front of folks who don't
tease me
Yah, I'll be a new neighborhood dad
Cats'll roll up on me like, "Trix my man!!"

Ya see a policeman rolled up on me and told me, "Make my day"
I said, "Relax brother," but he had proof that I had done it
He found the gun with my fingerprints on it
But now I'm in prison doin' life and I'm scared
Some kid snuffed me cold and greased me where no one dared

This was the moment I feared...
"Now bend over!"
This was the moment I feared...
"Take your trowsers down, and bend over!"

Now I'm doin' life and I'm scared
A kid knocked me cold and greased me where no one dared
The moment I feared..
This was the moment I feared

Demise

So you like to desmise with your pen
I was the same
I was the same back when
Then and now, I wanna change
But don't know how
Do's and don'ts - don'ts I don't like
She's not Tina and I'm not like Ike
But what was Ike like
Is Ike what you write
I don't know, I don't know
I don't know, I don't know
We'll disarm ya, ask Julian Palmer
Only joking, too much smoking
But it's ok, it's ok
We've been through too much yesterday

Tell you what we're gonna do
They'll protect me from me, I'll protect from you
By any means by any means
By any means by any means
Please won't you try
Stop me talking like a tough guy
Subject matter's love
Subject matter's love
What would I need another enemy
I know I love you
I can feel you in my energy
I'm too scared to be a gun totting
Gangster wanna-be
I've got too much love, too much love
Met you on mondalay
Inside of me
Or next week
If I'm tina I guess I'm weak
Big take
Making my head ache
Big take
Making my head ache
It's not your fault
You don't understand
Take our hand
We give
So don't be negative
You don't feel the
'Cause you feel yourself
Stuck up in your own head
Leave that 'till I'm dead
What do I think
I think instinct.


Tear out my eyes

Hot sand cold breeze
Hot sun

World wide plaza

I wanna demonstrate hate
I wanna rattle
I wanna blow my head off in seattle
No way
No way check it

And I change me

I deserve to die because of lies
It's crazy lies
We have to die because of lies
Wanna take my clothes off
Tear my mouth and nose off
And take out my eyes
Take out my eyes

Juxtapose

For real

Yeah
You watch too many films
Too many films for real
Some contracts you take too seriously-
Your record deal
A record deal pays bills
Feeds the family
Your profile is too big
How you gonna be a crime family

Too many films are for real
You want to see any films
Films are for real

Don't get me wrong
I know you got guns
And you're not scared to use 'em
But is there money bein' made 'round these guns
Or lives to be losin'

You watch too many films
Films for real
You watch too many films
Too many films for real

Some of these people have to life their life
For real
I don't have to
I got a record deal
For real
You heard
I chill
I smoke herb

Now how about these sexy singers
Sex cards
Two pack girls in a turn
Your fantastic, you supersperm
yeah, i'm a player hater
i hate when players can't take their turn
And when the record company drops me
That's when I learn

It's not for real
It's just passed the time
It's not real
All I do is rhyme

It's not real
It's just passed the time
All I do, all I do is rhyme

You heard you heard

You go Romeo
Girls say you look tall on the video
And the colored girls sing

Give me money, give me money
Give me money, give me money

And no one sings the blues
Everyone sings the greens
Some will say keep you on the prize
How you lose a dream

Who am I to say I don't need cash
In this hundred yard dash
I moved a while ago
And passed through New York
I'll be back in a minute
It's my turn to talk

For real
You heard
For real
You heard

I can grab a mic and wreck it
Make it copesetic
I train my mic
Restrain my mic

You watch too many movies
For real

You watch too many films
Films are for real

You watch too many films
Too many films are for real

You watch too many films
For real

we 'bout money
why?

when they can't go talk 
their God will police them
that's we inside for assault
we live in our world with the helicopter 
mind sent around to get a robber 
who knows what the hell a cop does
Street Dog,i hate them police

plus wanna do my girls for drugs
frontin' with all the right real come on
don't even say what a lady does
look as to think i'm turnin' out 
with a word at last to run 'em out
industry- everything under control
none of 'em know who runnin' the show
with the guns and the 'hos
all of them know 
when they come to the door i'm on a roll
nigga with the Jungle Heights could flow
with the 'hos in the role for the video
in a great porn show with the flyest girls
buy and sell with the clientele
before we all fry in Hell
please don't even try it now
well do you suppose my pocket well
nickel, dime- a five bag sale

things they try then die jail
gonna be fast when the high speeds 
are a finished scheme
our hope i don't see riots
this day is a laugh
me a star
ain't tryin' to see no fuckin' police cars
that's the only drawback when i drive

Tricky :

Look who do I have to have and why
A city's child
Real mode- you have to talk about it
An old pro- still we're 'bout it, 'bout it
Don't frown about it
It's best you keep quiet
You could never lead a riot
Money don't make you a leader
A leader usually reads
Go read a book
He shaked then he shook
"I need that crack, I need that crack"
You're swingin' the pipe
Do what you like
Goin' "doom doom"
Reflect on the room
Reflect on your life
Go stab yourself with a knife

Bob Khaleel :

Reflect on your life 
Time isn't real
How much time
Can you kill? 

Reflect on your life
Time isn't real
How much time
Can you kill?

Tricky:

Vengeance isn't mine
It taught to hate from time
Time isn't real
How much time can you kill?
Luca Brazzi
He sleeps with the fishes
Fuck sugar and spice
And girls with deadly kisses
Purr like a cat
Raising towers
I go over her house
For the most
I got diamonds on suits
A girl's erased diamonds with new shoes
Remember Hollywood
You could finally make deals
Screamin', "Nigger you can get these!"
Stereotypical
Almost mythical
Like Mickey Mouse
I'll blow down your house
Blow up your whole image
Hardcore musicians with image

Bob Khaleel :

Love

Tricky :
You're silver screen
You're a hardcore lovin' machine
You play hardcore with me
And sooner or later we'll see

Bob Khaleel :

Reflect on your life
Time isn't real
How much time
Can you kill?

Reflect on your life
Time isn't real
How much time
Can you kill?

Reflect on your life
Time isn't real
How much time
Can you kill?

Reflect on your life
Time isn't real
How much time
Can you kill?

Reflect on your life
Time isn't real
How much time
Can you kill?

Reflect on your life
Time isn't real
How much time
Can you kill?

*** Thanx a lot to Kevin and Elliot for this one ***

She said

Tricky:

She said, she said, she said, she said

She said she could tempt me
Both in rooms full or empty
She said, she said
Even might turn out the lights
She said, she said
Pretend to know me- then show me
She said, she said
She was a missed good night,I
Wanted to share her vagina
She said, she said

Then we jumped in her car
Went real far
After the pizza
With Wendy and Lisa
She said, she said
Asked about Prince
I left my fingerprints
She said, she said

Then I jumped in the car
Go real far
Jumped in the car
Go real far
She said, she said
Now I start fucking with drugs
I got Muggs
She said, she said

Then we jump in the car
And go real far
She was just showin' me tanks
Robbin' banks
A new inflation bring migration
If you want to be boy
Don't send a decoy
She said, she said

Tricky and Kioka:

Wait 'til dark comes
Don't play with guns
And kill the toys
Don't play with boys

Tricky:

She said, she said

Let's go stress
Then touch my breasts
It's all yours
We finish tours
She said, she said

Then we jumped in the car
Went real far
Jumped in the car
Went real far
She said, she said
Now I'm on the run
Always weighs a ton
She said, she said

Dark brown eyes
'You wanna stroll with' eyes
She said, she said
Takes lots of patience
Then I lost my patience
Acting like an actress
Killed her on the mattress
She's dead, she's dead
She's dead, she's dead

Then I jumped in my car
Went real far
Jumped in my car
Went real far
Jumped in my car
Went real far
She's dead, she's dead

I Like The Girls

Mad Dog:
In the Beamer or a fly Mercedes
Gettin' lit up, high on the great weed
I like the girls, I like the ladies
I light my world to drive her crazy

In the Beamer or a fly Mercedes
Gettin' lit up, high on the great weed
I like the girls, I like the ladies
I light my world to drive her crazy

Tricky and Mad Dog:

(I like the girls)
Gettin' lit up, high on the great weed
(I like the girls)
I like the girls, I like the ladies
(I like the girls)
I light my world to drive her crazy
(With the real long hair)

In the Beamer or a fly Mercedes

Gettin' lit up, high on the great weed
(I like the girls)
I like the girls, I like the ladies
(Whether they're slim or they're short)
I light my world to drive her crazy
(I really don't care)

Mad Dog:
Met two girls in a restaurant
Didn't know the hookers was lesbians
'Til I got home and started sexin' 'em
The shit they were doing was excellent
Yeah, yeah, the show was perfect
The one with her tits in the other girl's bit
Slim girl was holdin' her hips
Strokin' her tongue all over her clit
This girl was gettin pornographic
Should've had a vid recordin that shit
One girl's tits now taking a big mount
Going down south licking the bitch out
'Round 'em and stylin' my dick was shinin'
Next minute the babe is grindin'
Went outside and left 'em windin'
When I came back they was 69in'
All of 'em was crying- she'd screamed
"Lick the whipped cream from off of her tits"
See me laying for the queen all this fisting
Reminds me of a dream I had at fifteen
Last time I seen 'em was at the club
It was me two girls and the scrappy love
Back then wanted to be nice enough
But now there's enough for the both of us

Tricky and Mad Dog:
In the Beamer or a fly Mercedes
(I like the girls)
Gettin' lit up, high on the great weed

Mad Dog:
Fit like hand in glove and I'm up
Take a shot like the last of the stand drop
Boom boom boom
Check, then feel again
That's the time to pull out the handcuffs
Dials a one on a one minute call
Be gone if I never done the cheap rough
She calls and asks when we can fuck
And who else wants the Jungle Lay
So she dials a one on a one minute call
Be gone if i never done the cheap rough
Unless she wants a Jungle Lay
So she calls everyone wonderin' when we can fuck
Dolce & Gabanna wearin'
'Cause when the girls put on the starin'
I love watchin' all this dancin'
By the girls who are as about as luscious acting
Rude girl and her martial firing
"Ooh well, get the spot!" they whinin'
Street Dog, they caught me rhymin'
Turned around and got fucking blinded
My favorite beds get no shy women
When or wherever to be drivin'
My take come to the face
When i see that beat goes the drum
And the bass is blastin'
Freak if i bone
It's like i lost control
I'm all alone think i'm toppin'
Get high when i drive a car
And try to drink and drive
When i'm private parking

In the Beamer or a fly Mercedes
Gettin' lit up, high on the great weed
I like the girls, I like the ladies
I light my world to drive her crazy

In the Beamer or a fly Mercedes
Gettin' lit up, high on the great weed
I like the girls, I like the ladies

Hot like a sauna

Tricky:

Round the corner
Turn the corner, turn

Hell is round the corner 
Hot like a sauna
I know i hurt her
When i'd said, "i don't wanna"
And with this drama
I act like jeffrey dahmer
I beat her then i eat her
Nigga's sweet,there's no one sweeter
I think i lost my tweeter
To your pussycats
Do you call your pistols 'gats'?

Don't sleep her love away 
Don't let her run away
Don't sleep her love away
Don't let her...

Dream and i'm seein' it
Harmed a girl like Monica
Everyday be like Hanukkah
And change my mind again
Hide off like to find a friend
I call her "enemy"
She says i act like there's ten of me
A sketch for their clone
A dog without a home
But you want more when i was on tour
I told you,"shouldn't run alot"
Now look how much time you got
Told you,"shouldn't run alot"
Now look how much time you got

Mad dog:
Take life on the streets- your own
Made by Grease beats- pure dog
Runnin' with the realest kids of New York
Street Dog speak the true talk
Wanna talk about crime?
Yeah right!
Stick ups- get in mind to realize
Alright
Run the airtime
Fuck the police it's startin' to get hyped
Niggas gettin' paranoid and void
Then imply Tetth's a bad boy
Just gonna rap and forget gettin' caught
Dogs get mad when niggas stand broke
Come pharaoh 
Yo,willy joe
Shit, i had coke and fifty pound notes
Puffed it for those niggas i know
Far as i know you're a freak if i bone
Like i go 
Trix and Milo
I roll with niggas with big machines
Blank sreens, video scenes
Blue, black and green
Niggas with wigs scared the scam clean
And get the cream- know what i mean?
Diggin' the scene with the gasoline
With enough magazines
Them not a fuss
Big as their niggas who run it rough
There be no crime for none of us
Livin' to find those kinds of drugs
With no undercovers
Those motherfuckers can't flop dogs
In any form, this rough cough's quick
I'm sick
Gonna with the Jungle Heights clique
In England the trans-Atlantic
In Harlem where demands don't quit

Kioka:
Levitating and useless debating 
In these devastating times

Tricky:
Don't let her run away

Kioka:
While everybody's just doing drugs
And writing melodic rhymes

Tricky:
Don't sleep her love away

Kioka:
Trying to get one 
And not get into trouble
I might just be inclined

Tricky:
Don't let her run away

Kioka:
We all got needs 
We all do dirty deeds
Now and then wanna smoke some weed

Tricky:
Don't sleep her love away

Kioka:
Yeah we're free
Yes we need to be free 
Walkin' round with unsatisfying needs

Tricky:
Don't let her run away

Kioka:
Yeah we're free 
Yes we need to be free
Walkin' round with unsatisfying needs

Tricky:
Don't sleep her love away

Mad dog:
Come with a bang bang
It's a hangman gettin' my prayer
My hands can slang bang actors
That have the will to gang slang
That's the type of nigga that can't say,
"You don't go and forget the down times
And the walk while i was with the bad man"
Many to fly right?
Masterplan
Miracle flight like Pan-Am
Man,damn!
Sure as the echo
'Fore that gonna pump the petrol
Niggas with escorts hide in the get-go
Now lay it in the ghetto
Yeah y'all
I could find life in a Paris metro
While i'm walkin' around slammin' ghettos
In the real
Know the rapper with the black girls
Deliverin' travels with the Maxwells
Gettin' paid off girls
Rockwells, high L's 
Well as drop sales with Stockwell
Street Dog with a molotov cocktail
No no can't stop flowin' no
Gettin' paid off girls
Rockwells, high L's
Well as drop sales with Stockwell
Street Dog with a molotov cocktail
No no can't stop flowin' no

And now won't wait
And now won't change now
Or rearrange
it might get strange now

Tricky and D'na: 
Just fallin' free
Just fall in me
And i'm your coffin
And I'm your coffin
For endless sleep now
For endless sleep now

Little sunbeam
I hear you scream
I feel your heat now
I feel your heat now
Here's to one we sleep now
I hear trees scream
Ain't the people mean?
What do they mean?
It's time to sleep now
It's time to go now

I wait for you, I wait for you
I wait for you, I wait for you

Wash my soul

Tricky:

Wash my soul, wash my soul, wash my soul

Tricky and Bob Khaleel:

I get paid while they starve
In the streets
Visa cards, VIP
Wash away and use you as a fan
Starving these children
And i change the channel
You know me, i'm Mr.Nice
You know me I survive at any price
So it seems i'm the devil's son

Lick it, wet it, you like it, you let it
Lick it, wet it, touch it, take your turn
On somedays, together we can learn
Wash my soul, wash my soul, wash my soul

Lick it, wet it, you like it, you let it
Lick it, wet it, touch it, take your turn
On somedays, together we can learn

I've served with gangsters
And I've served with kings
These are a few of my favorite things
Think about love, love now and then
It's no good
I am weak, I admit
Wash my soul

Lick it, wet it, you like it, you let it
Lick it, wet it, touch it, take your turn
On somedays, together we can learn
Wash my soul, wash my soul

Lick it, wet it, you like it, you let it
Lick it, wet it, you like it, take your turn
Take your turn, take your turn
Together we can learn

*** Thanx a lot to Kitty and Elliot for this one ***

Scrappy love

Tricky:
Where've you been, love?
How've you been, love?
It's a long time since i've seen love
You make me happy, love
Hope that you're happy, love
I was a scrappy love

I feel like i'm stupid now
I feel like i'm stupid now

How've you been, love?
I've committed a sin, love
You care for him, love?
He's good for you, love
Guess who has sinned, love?
She asked how you're doin', love
I feel kind of stupid, love
To the noose,to the neck,to the push,to the shove

How much time has it been, love?
How much time has it been, love?

We don't even speak now
Remember the first walk-out?
You fill my need
You tell me to read
We sat in the park
We sat just apart

But not for our own love
We grew a strong love
But not for our own love
We grew a strong love

Wish i could sin love
Wish i could sin love
Wish i could sin love

Where've you been, love?
How've you been, love?
It's a long time since i've seen love
You make me happy, love
Hope that you're happy, love
I was a scrappy love

Feel like i'm stupid now
Feel like i'm stupid now

How've you been, love?
I've committed a sin, love
Do you care for him love?
He's good for you love
Guess who i've seen, love?
She asked how you're doin', love
I feel kind of stupid love
To the noose, to the neck, to the push, to the shove
How much time has it been, love?
How much time has it been, love?

We dont want to speak now
Remember the first walk-out?
You fill my need
Tell me to read
Sat in the park
We sat just apart

But not for our own love
We grew a strong love
But not for our own love
We grew a strong love

Wish i could sin, love
Wish i could sin, love

How've you been, love?
It's a long time since i've seen love
You care for him, love?

He's good for you, love
He's good for you, love

Blowback

Excess

Tricky : 
I believe in 
I deceive in 
Bottom weaving 
I can breathe in 
Make a wish in 
Flower fishing
Moving vibration 
Mild relation 
I'm jamaican on your radio station 
Got a curse in 
Could be worse in 
You first 
In a hearse in 
Good as dead in 
Nothing left in 
Nothing left in 
Some be heading 
I need a head rest in 
And a feed from a warm breast

And man making hits
From my childbearing hips
Underground like 
Who's it sound like 
You all sound the same 
But you don't know my name

Stephanie McKay:

Stress 
Catch my breath

Get some rest 
(He and I)
From the mess 
(In fact any time)
I couldn't care less 
(Every day)
Sugar cane
(Write fictional stories)
Is like smack to my vein 
Shook fame 
(If you want to)
But I don't complain 
(On the street)

Stephanie McKay: 
I believe in different reasons 
I believe in breath through seasons 
I believe when snow flakes fall 
I believe in buildings tall 


Alanis Morissette:
Ah

I believe in people bombing 
I believe in people warring 
I believe diseases coming 
I believe that's why I'm running

You gotta ask 
(There'll be a new tale of)
Before he attacks 
(He and I)
You got the flats 
(In fact any time)
Dub my sacks 
(Every day)
You've got the city 
(Writing fictional stories)
Move out of the country 
I'm scrunching 
(If you want to)
Friends that are punchy 
(On the street)

Bring love and it'll make it alright
Bring love and we'll take it tonight

When they drop the bomb
Who will stay calm
Blood will spill
Who would you kill

Top of my earth
Tip of my rock
Walking on the road with my soul in my hand
Tip of my toes

Over me

Hawkman: 
Boy take man F clune 
Ya fool boy think say more 
A comearound yo! 
Let's take the downtown 
Me have me gone in a me yard 
A me guard so if a boy want 
Me seen of a the scene 
And come back without a clue 
Take me feel afraid 
Me pop off and ease off 
To me want the marathon crew 

Ambersunshower: 
When love is lost 
All I hear are gunshots over me 
When love is drawn 
It soaks and floats all over me 
All over me 
Over me 
Over me 

Hawkman: 
When you think a one or two 
Do and ya 
They ready to kill them couldn't cross the border 
Shot a lick them right middle left to center 
Like sunshine they shot them over and over 
The make sure them dead their body in a corner 
Blood run down like some stagnant water 

Ambersunshower: 
When lonely 
It gives and gives all over me 
When love is strong 
It goes on and on 
All over me 
Over me 
Over me 

Hawkman: 
Will ever since then they get me blood warm 
I never come so I'd wish I wasn't born 
Another punk guys ring the alarm 
Now what's left is CPR but he already gone 

Ambersunshower: 
When love is lost 
All I hear are gunshots over me 
When love is drawn 
It soaks and floats all over me 
Over me 
Over me 

When lonely 
It gives and gives all over me 
When love's strong 
It goes on and on 
All over me 
Over me 
Over me

Girls

Tricky: 
Girls, Boys 
Girls wish you never had boys 
They grow up to be bad boys 
Cry I've never had boys 
Never seen your dad boy 
I've never seen my dad boy 
Without the Roy 
And when my career stops kicking 
I'm gonna stick him 

Anthony Kiedis: 
Rock-a-dub now let me show you where it's at boy 
Just a puppet and you grew into a fat boy 
Make a dog and you chase another cat boy 
Blow it up and let me show you where its at boy 

Tricky: 
Girls wish you never had boys 
They grow up to be bad boys 
Cry I've never had boys 
Never seen your dad boy 
I've never seen my dad boy 
Without the Roy 
And when my career stops kicking 
I'm gonna stick him 

Anthony Kiedis: 
Staring through the sun tell your devil beware 
I am not the son of your family affair 
Baby breaks away and I've got my face in my hand 
Genetics from my gun, trust me I don't care 

Tricky: 
I don't need no man 
Little boys 

Anthony Kiedis: 
Rappa rouser, bappa bouser 
Shake it for me baby let me step into your trousers 
I allow this 
Come on baby let me take to the houses 
I allow this 
This is now and you better bow this 
This is now and you better bow this 
This is now and you better bow this 

Anthony Kiedis & Tricky: 
Staring through the sun tell your devil beware (jamaica's skirts and blouses) 
I am not the son of your family affair (he didn't rob his houses) 
Baby breaks away and I've got my face in my hand (fuck the biological) 
Genetics from my gun, trust me I don't care 

Tricky: 
I don't need no man 
Little boys 

Tricky: 
I'm not a fire starter 
Cause I'm a little smarter 
Smarter than the average bear 
I don't care family's there 

Anthony Kiedis: 
Rock-a-dub now let me show you where it's at boy 
Just a puppet and you grew into a fat boy 
Make a dog and you chase another cat boy 
Blow it up and let me show you where it's at boy 

Anthony Kiedis & Tricky: 
Staring through the sun tell your devil beware (jamaica's skirts and blouses) 
I am not the son of your family affair (he didn't rob his houses) 
Baby breaks away and I've got my face in my hand (fuck the biological) 
Genetics from my gun, trust me I don't care 
I don't care

You don't wanna

Ambersunshower :

You want to estimate 
The distance that it takes
To find a lover lover
You want to rectify
This mad look in my eyes
Then find your other lover

I found out how to be perfect for you my dear

Wonder Woman

Tricky: 
She's so malicious and so delicious 
Superstitious super suspicious 
Wonder woman under woman 
Only woman lonely woman 
You just rewind and we'll just be fine 
We'll just be fine you just be mine 
You just rewind and we'll just be fine 
You just be mine you just be mine 
John Frusciante: 
You show me everything 
You fill me everywhere 
Your preaching that you care 
Do you care 

I'll fix to fall through time 
I knew your weren't mine 
I'll shine right through the sky 
Floating I try and try 
Captured by what I lose 
That' when I forced the flew 
Being will never be 
Have her remembering me 

Tricky: 
Tuck your hair behind you ears 
Your tears and your silly fears 
I'll be your teddy bear 
You chose the clothes I wear 
For you I suffer much pain 
Sharp glass migraine 
For you I'd lose my focus 
For you I'd swim a swarm of locusts 

John Frusciante: 
You show me everything 
You fill me everywhere 
Your preaching that you care 
Do you care 

Everytime I am you 
I feel forever new 
Posing along the beat 
You feel like I me 
If I were myself right now 
I wish I never found 
I'm holding on so tight 
Feeling like not feeling right 

You show me everything 
You fill me everywhere 
Your preaching that you care 
Do you care 

Tricky: 
Here I remain 
She don't know my name 
Would she love me 
If I had real fame 
I feel bad pain 
Here come that rain 
I don't complain 
She's too complex 
Tell me your name 
Is that your real sex

Something in the way

( Nirvana Cover )

Hawkman :

Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And all the animals i have trapped
Have all become my pets
And I'm living off the grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It's okay to eat fish
'Cause they don't have any feelings

Something in the way

Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak

Something in the way
Something in the way

Five days

Cyndi Lauper and Tricky: 
The five to fours can't take it no more 
The five to fours can't take it no more 
The five to fours can't take it no more 
The five to fours can't take it no more 
Five days 
I ran a wolf across highways 
In the early spring (don't stop you're gonna break my heart) 
The rest of my days 
Should I stay should I pray 
That I'm here now clear now 
Live with the fears 
To extend my tears 
Shed no have no 
Undecided 
Five days in which I can't wait now (I need you) 
Can't wait now (you needed me) 
Bet you can't wait now (whatever happened to compatible two) 
Making you wait now 

I ran a wolf across highways in the early spring 
The five to fours can't take it no more 
The five to fours can't take it no more 
The five to fours can't take it no more 
The five to fours can't take it no more 

Have I the meanings 
I don't think I'm cheating 
I create like the windy city (Don't go) 
But the drums spread (I told you so) 
Here we go with the games now 
Maintain now 
Might as well have you down now 
Five days that you can't wait now (no need to smile) 
Making you hate now 

The five to fours can't take it no more 
The five to fours can't take it no more 
The five to fours can't take it no more 
The five to fours can't take it no more 

Bet you can't wait now 
Making you wait now 
Don't go I told you so 
After what you've had 
That look on your face you rat 
When you talk like that 
I just want to get you back

Anata wa shōten o ushinatteiru  (For you I'd lose my focus)
Batta no mure no naka o oyoideiru ne  (I'd swim in swarms of locusts)

I have visions
Homosapiens
Fast I've grown
I think alone
I'm confusion

I'm in man cub
Institution
I move forward
I make awkward

I just jump jump
I just thump thump

We go round and round
We make it safe and sound
I try to break it down
Alright

I evolve
Then dissolve
Maintain my laws
‘til April falls

My sea runs red
My trees are dead
My breath runs short
Please report

Is there someone out there
Is there someone out there
Do you receive me
Do you receive me

We go round and round
We make it safe and sound
I try to break it down
Alright

Car Crash

Costanza & Tricky:
You leave me hungry
Wanting more
Am I thirsty
I wasn't sure
See me driving
Through the rain
Why am I driving
I can't explain
In my car to where you are
I won't make it
I can't make it
In my car to where you are
I won't make it
I can't make it

I am sliding
I lose my breaks
The lights are blinding
The earth quakes
Now I'm lying
Will I die
Will they find me
Will they try

In my car to where you are
I won't make it
I can't make it
In my car to where you are
I won't make it
I can't make it

Doesn't matter about the time we make
Doesn't matter it doesn't shatter
If time we take
You know they're lost
While I'm dragging the cross
(If you sing along…)
And where you cross (If I scream…)

While they're washing they sins
(And we sing along…)
She sings, I do evil things
I need I strive (and we sing along…)
I bleed alive
(And we sing along… and we sing along…)

Dear God

( XTC  - Cover )

Tricky & Costanza Francavilla :
Dear God
Hope you got the message, and
I pray you can make it better down here
I don't mean a big reduction in the price of beer
But all the people that you made in your image
See them starving on their feet
'Cause they don't get enough to eat
From God, I can't believe in you
I can't believe in you

Dear God
Sorry to disturb you, but
I feel that I should be heard loud and clear
We all need a big reduction in amount of tears
And all the people that you made in your image
See them fighting in the street
'Cause they can't make opinions meet about God
I can't believe in you
I can't believe

Did you make disease
I can't believe
And the diamond blue?
I don't believe
Did you make mankind after we made you?
I can't believe
And the devil too
I don't believe
I can't believe

Dear God
Don't know if you noticed, but
Your name is on a lot of quotes in this book
And us crazy humans wrote it, you should take a look
And all the people that you made in your image still believing that junk exist
Well I know it ain't, and so do you
Dear God
I can't believe in
I don't believe in
I don't believe

I won't believe in heaven and hell
No saints, no sinners, no devil as well
No pearly gates, no thorny crown
You're always letting us humans down
The wars you bring, the babes you drown
Those lost at sea and never found
And it's the same the whole world 'round
The hurt I see helps to compound
That Father, Son and Holy Ghost
Is just somebody's unholy hoax
And if you're up there you'd perceive
That my heart's here upon my sleeve
If there's one thing I don't believe in

It's you

How High

Costanza & Tricky:
If I say jump jump
You say how high
Standing like a mannequin
Mannequins don't fly
Don't swim don't grin
Take it like a real man
Take it fake it
Then she ran
I try to show you
But I don't know you
I try to know you
But I can't grow you

Watch
See me how I fly fast
See me how I fly past
No time for rest separate
For the rest separate
For the rest now
Watch
See me how I fly fast
See me how I fly past

Please you will move quick
You're making me real sick
No go no chnace
I don't slow I don't dance

I try to show you
But I don't know you
I try to know you
But I can't grow you

Watch
See me how I fly fast
See me how I fly past
No time for rest separate
For the rest separate
For the rest now
Watch
See me how I fly fast
See me how I fly past

If I say jump jump
You say how high
Standing like a mannequin
Mannequins don't fly
Don't swim don't grin
Take it like a real man
Take it fake it
Then she ran

What is wrong

Constanza Francavilla :

What is wrong with us
All we do is fight
Get out of my view
I'm not feeling right
I'm not feeling good
I don't think I should
Something's standing in your view
I'm standing next to you

You and me heavenly
Forever what does it mean

You and me heavenly
Forever what does it mean

What is good for you
Doesn't mean too much
What you think is true
I can't feel or touch

I can't feel or touch
I don't feel that much
What is wrong with you
You're standing in my view

You and me heavenly
Forever what does it mean

You and me heavenly
Forever what does it mean

What is wrong with you
All you do is fight
Get out of my view
I'm not feeling right

I'm not feeling good
I don't think I should
Something's standing in your view
I'm standing next to you

You and me heavenly
Forever what does it mean

You and me heavenly
Forever what does it mean

You and me

*** Thanx a lot to Nyushi & Kitty ( Tricky's Moon Palace ) for this one ***

Hollow

Costanza & Tricky:
Doesn't matter about the time we take
Doesn't matter about the lies we make
Go slow
I think of how you're making me mad
I think of all the love we had
Feel so

Always question never quenching your thirst
Let me die when I lie to you first
I follow

When I'm with you it's from within
I know you can see through my skin
I'm hollow

I need you to feed me once more
I need you like I needed before
I'll grow

I'm floating I'm flying I'm dying
I'm floating I'm flying I'm dying

Tricky:
I said you needed like I needed before
Said you need me that you meet at five
You don't show I don't I''m alive
My pulse slow
My pulse slow

Costanza & Tricky:
I'm floating I'm flying I'm dying
I'm floating I'm flying I'm dying

Liz Constantine (opera vocals in the background) & Constanza & Tricky:
I'm floating I'm flying I'm dying
I'm floating I'm flying I'm dying

Moody

Tricky:
It's my world
It's my world
Costanza & Tricky:
Running
Breathing
Deceiving
Take and make
What you breath in
Know me
Show me
Hardly
No you can't A&R me

Costanza:
I pretend I don't exist
I close my eyes and wish
Taste like liquorice
& sound so devilish
Slide across the floor
Move a little more
Take a sip & pour
I've heard it all before

Costanza & Tricky:
It's my world
Gonna take it now
Make it now
Make it shout
All this green
Gonna make me mean
Make me dream make me skim
(2x)

Costanza:
They say where have you been
what you're leaving in
clean craw far
I could even more
(I'm feeling)
I should have to seesaw
(kill)
I offer a 3 4
(I crawl across the floor)
so you live more
(In the day mix)
so you live more
(They play cheap tricks)

I pretend I don't exist
I close my eyes and wish
My thoughts are devilish
My thoughts are just a wish

Tricky:
It's my world
Gonna take it now
Make it now
Make it shout
All this green
Gonna make me mean
Make me dream make me skim

Costanza & Tricky:
It's my world
Gonna take it now
Make it now
Make it shout
All this green
Gonna make me mean
Make me dream make me skim

Tricky:
It's funny how you feel
The eyes in your head
The brain and spine
Releases fluid when you're dead
Then you start to shed
Turning to something else instead
Something else was said
Someone else's sunset was red

Costanza & Tricky:
It's my world
Gonna take it now
Make it now
Make it shout
All this green
Gonna make me mean
Make me dream make me skim
(repeated)

Wait for God

Tricky:
If I came into your life
If I come to my life
The life was strange
We remain the same
Set the pain, share the strain
252 stuck in the game
Girls that I smack, it's for my babe
Stuck in my life, stuck in my wife
Stuck in the scratch, she says she's dead
Waiting for God is very hard

Costanza & Tricky:
I wait for God and it's very hard
(I wait for God)
I am the lamb I don't understand
(Don't understand)
I drink your blood and I'm still thirsty
I wait for God and it's very hard

Costanza:
I'm stuck in the church
Stuck in the verse
Stuck in the words
Stuck in my nerves
Stuck in the wrong
Stuck all along
Stuck in the bars
Stuck in the cars
Stuck in the time
Stuck in this line

I'm doing fine
I'm doing mine
I'm reading signs
We're killing time
I'm stuck in the time
Stuck in this line

Costanza & Tricky:
I wait for God and it's very hard
(I wait for God)
I am the lamb I don't understand
(Don't understand)
I drink your blood and I'm still thirsty
(still... thirsty)
I wait for God and it's very hard

Tricky:
I wait for God I wait for Christ
I wait for wife
I wait for life
Tomorrow come
We feel the sun
Tomorrow come
We feel as one
The only God
The only son
Holy from the only one

Costanza:
We're on our own now we're fully grown
I'm all alone when I roam

Costanza & Tricky:
I wait for God and it's very hard
(I wait for God)
I am the lamb I don't understand
(Don't understand)
I drink your blood and I'm still thirsty
(Still...)
I wait for God and it's very hard
(repeated)

Where I'm from

Tricky:
Damn bam, read the lines
Bleed succeed, we design
I couldn't care less it's a killing time
We're killing mine you're feeling fine

Running every time and every sign
Every line and every crime
No snack, it brings you curse
No sweat, you like your worse

Strange fruit like silver
Changing bombs into ear gums
Running every time and every sign
Every line and every crime

Tricky & Costanza:
Where I'm from
There's something wrong
Something wrong
I don't belong

Where I'm from
There's something wrong
Something wrong
I don't belong

Please be still
Not for real

Mike Black:
So you really want it, yes, we got it
If you listen in then, yes, you got
We want a company we're in
Let's do talk shit
I don't really want to have no problems here
I don't really want to have no problems here
All I really want to do is make this clear
We do bleed you
So deceive your mind and nose
When I don't see in
Wosen grosen to a dream
It bozen dozen to something
Hold it tight when cuts run deep
No one sees what you're hiding

Tricky & Costanza:

Costanza:

So tu credi che,
Che io sia
Sotto il tuo colore
Il tuo Messia
La solita vita non modifica il mondo
Solo se una donna puo' fermare l'onda
Rosso fuoco, viva nel mio petto
Solo una parola c'e': rispetto
Scelgo, voglio, non aspetto
Criminale è il vero nome del tuo scettro
Blitz a Diaz, polizia
Blocco nero e' la tua spia
Non mi fermero' mai ai tuoi richiami
Corro piu' veloce della tua Ferrari
So you believe that
That I am
Below your colour
Your Messiah
The same life doesn't modify the world
Only if a woman can stops the wave
Red as fire, alive in my breast
There's only one word: respect
I choose, I want, I dont wait
Criminal is the real name of your sceptre
Blitz a Diaz, police
Black block is your spy
I wont never stop to your recalls
I run faster than your Ferrari

Tricky & Costanza:

The Love cats

( The Cure - Cover )

Tricky & Constanza :
Ah
We move like cagey tigers
Like cagey tigers
We couldn't get closer than this
The way we walk
The way we talk
The way we stalk
The way we kiss

We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger and brighter
Wider and lighter
Bigger and brighter
Wider and lighter

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

We're so wonderfully wonderfully wonderfully
Wonderfully pretty
Oh you know that I'd do anything for you
We should have each other to tea huh?
We should have each other with cream
Then curl up by the fire
And sleep for awhile
It's the grooviest thing
It's the perfect dream

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

Like cagey tigers
We couldn't get closer than this
The way we talk
The way we walk
The way we stalk
The way we kiss

We slip through the streets
While everyone sleeps
Getting bigger and brighter
Wider and lighter
Bigger and brighter
Wider and lighter

Into the sea
You and me
All these years and no one heard
I'll show you in spring
It's a treacherous thing
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats
We missed you hissed the lovecats

Search, Search, Survive

Tricky:
Ah one two
Ah ah One two
Ah one two
Ah ah
Search search survive
Say you're lucky alive
You could be Aalyah
The grass is usually greener
Life is usually meaner
I'm like Ike I die for
I'd rather be released
Than controlled by the beast
It's not my fault
You're not a writer
Emotional exciter
You're not a writer
Emotional exciter
You're nobody
I do this for a hobby
The editor of Face
Well edit this place
Exit without trace
After we edit your face
You know I come in peace
Until the tension is released
You know I come in peace
Until the tension is released

Tricky & (Costanza):
Search search survive
(Cerchi e sopravvivi)
Say you're lucky alive
(Fortunato e vivo)
You could be Aaliyah
(O forse Aaliyah)
The grass is usually greener
(L'erba e' gia' piu' verde)
The life is usually meaner
(Ma la vita e' piu' meschina)
I'm like Ike I die for
(Io sono come Ike e muoio per)
I'd rather be released
(Preferisco liberato)
Than controlled by the beast
(che da una bestia dominato)
It's not my fault

Well edit this place

Exit without trace

Won't love, won't care again

Bacative

Rodigan:
Real gangster now fool with real bravado
In a leather trenchcoat, made in Milano
Black leather felt disguise me my skin
She dark like night, me and Tricky and Keno
It's time for all a drink, so we go in a casino
From above the door we see guys, they team up
Me and scarface they grow from Reno
Drink em up me bub and a guy can't sneak up
Me 45 left enough guy a lean up
Left along the wall for the mayor to clean up
Clean up, speak up, before it gets serious

Female singer:

Keep on running...

Tricky:

You know we come in peace and leave you in pieces

Female singer:
There's no exit

Keep on running...

Tricky:
Yo so ya know when we come in a club we da backdoor security

Rodigan:
Real gangster now fool with real bravado
In a leather trenchcoat, made in Milano
Black leather felt disguise me my skin

Joseph

Joseph:
They want to see me cry
I would rather fly
I'm swimming in my grease
Angel, touch my face

She leads me by my hand
To castles in the sand
Suffocating from concrete
She I like to meet

I have to leave to look
I had to take a toke
I have to feel alone
I have to change my tone

I begin to wash my sins
I'm trying, my life begins

I sit up, I stand down
I sit up, I spin around
I sit up, I stand down
I sit up, I spin around

I sit up, I stand down
I sit up, I spin around
I sit up, I stand down
I sit up, I spin around

I should lose my friends
And I forget these bells
I'll spend time with me
And take a time to see
(Tricky: I sit up)
To learn about my son
(Tricky: stand down)
Crowded since my twelve
His mother said I'm special
(Tricky: round and round)
On my starship vessel

She left me now, she's gone
(Tricky: stand down)
She gives to give a song
She gives to give
(Tricky: round and round)
She gives to give a song
(Tricky: I sit up, stand down, I sit up)

Veronika

Veronika Coassolo:
If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts, to your mind that way
You could've never jumped down in those arms
You could've never left my heart cold

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts, to your mind that way
You could've never jumped down in those arms
You could've never left my heart cold

Dead
Guilty, not here, there's no mercy for you, I stint
Burning your image, your lies and your hints, you're dead
I'm building a prayer for the memories I can't stand
Your life doesn't bother me now
I'm discharged
I kill yourself
Just to feel good
And make my life better without your trace
You're dead
Buried under this ground

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts, to your mind that way
You could've never jumped down in those arms
You could've never left my heart cold

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts, to your mind that way
You could've never jumped down in those arms
You could've never left my heart cold

Damned
But I feel the shame of the cheap life, for this I'm blessed
You kept on poisoning all of my days and for this
Brutally choking, so I bought a smile from death
The other side of the coin of your demise
Was my life and I love
All my survival skills
I loved you, too
But you tried to kill me as well
Too bad
You didn't give me respect

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts, to your mind that way
You could've never jumped down in those arms
You could've never left my heart cold

If I had been on your mind on that day
Holding on to your thoughts, to your mind that way
You could've never jumped down in those arms
You could've never left my heart cold

C'mon Baby

Female singer:
You excite
You excite me


Tricky
:
C'mon baby you might be

Female singer:
You excite
You excite me

Tricky & female singer:
You excite me maybe you might be
Am I the first one not likely
You will you won't just like me
I'm so phoney I'm lonely

I take too much, I taste your touch
I'm automatic there's no clutch

C'mon baby, baby c'mon (x4)

I think you do, but you don't care
I think you will, but you won't share
I'm shaking, baby, I'm shaking
Is this for love that we're making

I won't rehearse, you're in my verse
You're in my song 'cause you're so strong

C'mon baby, baby c'mon (x4)
C'mon baby, baby c'mon (x4)

Tricky:
Hey love, how you been love
It's a long time since I've seen love
Are you caring for him, love
He's good for you, love
How you been, love
How you been, love

I remember when we met, love
We sat in the dark, love
We sat just apart, love
But not for long, love
We grew real strong, love
Real strong love
You caring for him, love
He's good for you, love

Tricky & female singer:
C'mon baby, baby c'mon (x4)
C'mon baby, baby c'mon (x4)

Female singer:

Council Estate

In my mother's belly and I'm starting to kick
Nine months in the womb and I'm making her sick
Squeeze through the womb and I land in the room

Don't know who we are, can't really tell
We do the council flats and we do some jail

We don't like school, in a week we go once
Don't like the police 'cos they kick and they punch
God bless what a stress and the stress comes at once
But remember boy you're a superstar

(Can't take it)
Can't break it, can't take who you are
(Can't take it)
Can't break it, can't take who you are
(Can't take it)
So remember boy you're a superstar
(Can't take it)

They call you council estate
They call you 'can't go straight'
They call you crime rate
They call you 'can't go straight'
And you're bending all the rules
Where you bury your tools
Bending all the rules
Where you bury your tools

Your family can't visit cause the prison's too far
You can't be who you be cos you're not who you are
Remember boy you're a superstar
Remember boy you're a superstar
So remember boy you're a superstar

(Can't take it)
Can't break it, can't take who you are
(Can't take it)
Can't break it, can't take who you are
(Can't take it)
So remember, boy, you're a superstar
(Can't take it)

S...s...superstar
(Can't take it)
They don't know who you are
(Can't take it)
S...s...superstar
(Can't take it)
They don't know who you are
(Can't take it)
You're a superstar
Can't break it
So remember, boy, you're a superstar

(Can't take it)
Can't break it, can't take who you are
(Can't take it)
Can't break it, can't take who you are
(Can't take it)
So remember, boy, you're a superstar
(Can't take it)

(Can't take it)
Can't break it, can't take who you are
(Can't take it)
Can't break it, can't take who you are
(Can't take it)
So remember, boy, you're a superstar
(Can't take it)

Past Mistake

Lubna & Tricky:
I realize, there's no compromise
Through lion eyes, my love for
Just wasn't there, even though I care
Did I hurt you back, did I make you sad

I know I paid, that's why I'm alone today
Just me and myself, no mental health
My mistakes overtakes
Your love's overgrown my love walks alone

My love, my love, my love for you
My love, my love, my love for you

Now I wonder why, until we die
And then, upon your praise
I hope Jesus come to kill the mourn
I feel again, I love you then

Oceans of time, across divine
I found you, I will find you
That is not my time, my time to take
For me and myself, our lover song (?)

My love, my love, my love for you
My love, my love, my love for you

Til it burns my soul
Burns my soul
Burns a hole

My love, my love, my love for you
My love, my love, my love for you

Cross To Bear

Hafdis Huld & Tricky:
Jesus said to Mary, you really can come
I'm tired, love, and I'm feeling real numb
Gotta see if my father's come
I'm under pressure, while I'm under the sun

Father, priest expects me to lead
Leaves it's easy, wants me to bleed
I'm scared, Magdalene, I fear I'm lost
I won't lie, don't wanna die on no cross
Track every streets, with nails in my feet
Wanna stay and lay with you, you're sweet

It's not my cross to bear
No, I don't care
It's not my cross to bear
No, I don't care
It's not my cross to bear
No, I don't care

When I'm dead, they say I rise again
If I come, will you still be here then
If I run, will you run with me too
We'll hide inside
And find a space for two

Eat with friends before we leave
Madgalene said, "be careful, friends deceive."
Free my chains

It's not my cross to bear
No, I don't care
It's not my cross to bear
No, I don't care
It's not my cross to bear
No, I don't care

Tricky:
Premature, don't wanna die on no cross

Hafdis Huld & Tricky:
When I'm dead, they raise my body and feed

Tricky:
Premature, don't wanna die on no cross

Hafdis Huld & Tricky:
When I'm dead, they raise my body and feed

Tricky:
This is not my cross to bear
No, I don't care...

Slow

Knew you'd be here tonight
So I put my best dress on
Boy I was so right

This eagle inna sky, it a flies 'pon
Give me a reason or ya ready to go fight 'pon

Dough it make me blaze dem thoughts
Shaking when ya hear dis mouth
Mi gangsta wheneva we blazin South
Rude bwoy only faking thoughts

So you a gangsta, you nah real or like
?? gangsta, you never see a Crenshaw
So you take life
We take no response
Dem rule dem guerilla
Save inna Bronx
So you run streets and some love to six
Jamaican gangsta woulda row fi see dis
So you love war and you love preaching
Dem an Indian cubs, dem nah know (bout) my menace

Dem bwoy, dey a TV gangsta
Coulda neva wanna see my anger
Can you relate
It's too late…

*** Thanx a lot to Terri for this one ***

Go to cinema
Feel like a criminal

Tricky:
In the cinema, life is minimal
She won't love me, like that
She won't love me, like that
I try to choose, my shadow moves
But don't last, in my hovercraft
Life is minimal, life is minimal

School Gates

Lubna & Tricky:
I used to wait for her outside the school gates
She's fifteen and pregnant, I guess it's too late
I guess I'm too young, but I do what I can
She gave birth at fifteen, said the baby's not mine
So I get ahead in life, and get ahead in crime
It runs in the family, we've all done sometimes
It's Strangeways, Horfield, find someone

Where goes time
When you were mine
Where goes time
When you were mine

Lubna:
I'm a stranger as well, I'm dying myself
I guess I'm too young, but I do what I can

Lubna & Tricky:
I used to wait for her outside the school gates
She's fifteen and pregnant, I guess it's too late
I guess I'm too young, but I'll do what I can

Where goes time
When you were mine
Where goes time
When you were mine

Tricky:
Where goes time
When you were mine
Where goes time
When you were mine

I used to wait for her outside the school gates...

Every Day

Frankey Riley :
I am nothing, I move through walls
I'll make thunder when the night come
I'm full moon and the earth rotates
I am Adam and Eve she waits

I'm forsake, I'm the bird that flies
I'm the low tide and the sun that rise
I am plane in your friendly sky
I fly on the wings and the promise it brings

I am hope, I'm the noose and rope
I'm life, I'm death, I'm your last breath
I'm seasons, I'm reasons, I'm why you should end
You hate me you love me, I'm your best friend

I'm earthquake and deep lake, the fish that swims free
Straight to your plate, you can eat me
I'm everyday, I'm everyday, I'm every day
I'm everyday, I'm everyday, I'm every day
I'm everyday, I'm everyday, I'm every day
I'm everyday, I'm everyday, I'm every day

Kingston Logic

Terry Lynn :
Want it find it see it get it
Be rich now or just forget it
Earn it steal it beg it buy it
Can't stay broke you got to try it

Dream it plan it chance it risk it
Bring your guns machete ratchet
Load it lock it pack it strap it
Handgun long guns automatic

Hunt it search it time it find it
Wire fence and wall they climb it
Breach it break it reach it take it
Dog is sleeping don't you wake it

Have it hold it clench it hide it
Cop the goods and guns beside it
Fence it rail it beat it scale it
Who get caught the cops will jail it

Heard it check it stop inspect it
Look who's here Constable Becket
Knob it cuff it jeep it truck it
Pull no stunt you'll kick the bucket

Freeze it breeze it cock it squeeze it
Punctured brain nobody needs it
Track it trace it pick it waste it
Gunshot bore your face and space it

Chop it bash it smash it scrape it
Try you may but can't escape it
Rise it gage it bust it blaze it
Cops head gone a bullet shave it

Shoot it kill it mute it still it
Got one life you can't refill it
Know it pree it saw it flee it
Logic laws and rules we wrote it

Tricky :
Don't take it, keep it too long
It's not a fucking love song
Eat your words see she heard
You got the money and the car
She got the gun and for the boss
Time to kill
So I still
You confess
You got your bullets in your vest
You're keepin' move and move away
Smoking coke she's fun to play
You confess
Got your bullets in your vest
You're keepin' move and move away
Smoking coke she fun to play
He's got your bird, keeps your word (?)
Turn to dust like ???

Early Bird

Frankey Riley :
You know the squirl
I move just like one
I am the early bird
There's no stress
'Cause I'm the best
I don't care what you heard

You know the squirl

Tricky:
When I was a young kid
I had a greed
I wanted money and weed
Took what I need

A mixed race boy
They call me a bread
Mixed up boy
I was angry indeed

Had the first one in need
I needed to feed
My friends hurt people
Then make them bleed
That's what they did
To get what they need
I'm too hot
Waiting for god
Guns on my tele
Guns on my celly
You show me a gun
A lex???
Prison is smelly
Less hustle and bustle
But the time for the hustle
If people see hustlin'
They try muscle in'

Ghetto Stars

Frankey Riley :
Have a look at trick down
Down to see you face
You been locked in a cell
Standing south on the street
Hard to look though the bars
You don't look well
Shots keep ringin'
Still no presence
To accommodate our hardcore loves
This my love come get in line
Before they comes home with thugs

Tricky & Frankey Riley :
Ghetto stars don't go far
Ghetto traps, locked behind bars
Don't you worry keeps your hurry
The ghetto's know that you don't deserve

Tricky:
My blood is in it
I never try to reason
My cousin Norman
But the car case he's runnin'
My family's gringo
So I try to sing yo
Writing these efforts
While my nan plays the bingo
My scene is just a habit
Try to chase a rabbit
My family of gringo's
Break in though the windows
I need some new clothes
Shiny new wheel wells
Kickers and teeth now
We had a big sack
I really love my family
They probably never planned me
My family's gringo
So I try to sing yo

Tricky & Frankey Riley :
Ghetto stars don't go far
Ghetto traps, locked behind bars
Don't you worry keeps your hurry
The ghetto knows that you don't deserve

Frankey Riley :
Have a look trick down
To see my baby he'd been locked in cell
Singing songs to my sweetheart though the bars
He don't look well

Shots keep ringin'
Still no presence
To accommodate our hardcore loves
This my love come get in line
Before they comes home with thugs

Tricky & Frankey Riley :
Ghetto stars don't go far
Ghetto traps, locked behind bars
Don't you worry keeps your hurry
The ghetto's know that you don't deserve

Tricky:

Come to me

"Jen" on tricky's answering machine 8 years ago :

Dark and tan and young and lovely
The boy named tricky kid don't wanna call me
I just called to tell I wanna say hi
Just a call to let you know
That you are ok
And you are not too lonely
???
Just a call to say I am alive
What's up tricky
???

Wait a bit
How you doing
My name is fella
I live across
And face off
Tap the golf
Healty yellow
I play the scenes
With billy scenes
And by-laws
Sub city frames
With barefoot jeans
And no ones taken

By the way I'm half Jamaican
I don't like boys
I'm not like them all
Let's take a trip
We'll go to kiss

Come to me relieve the stress
Come to me in summer dress

I...I...I...I...there's no time for sun
Come to me in summer dress
I...I...I...I...there's no time for sun

On summer days we'll swim in caves
When can walk so many ways

I...I...I...I...there's no time for sun
Come to me in summer dress
I...I...I...I...there's no time for sun

On summer week when no one's around
I drink wine on an old back road
Swim to me I'll jump across
See this clouds I'm falling off

Come to me relieve the stress
Come to me in summer dress

I...I...I...I...there's no time for sun
I...I...I...I...there's no time for sun

Come to me relieve the stress
Come to me in summer dress
Come to me relieve the stress
Come to me in summer dress

Come to me relieve the stress
Come to me in summer dress
Come to me relieve the stress
Come to me in summer dress

I...I...I...I...there's no time for sun
Come to me relieve the stress
Come to me in summer dress
I...I...I...I...there's no time for sun

Time to Dance

You could free into
Jump to the lake
Swim until you wake
Under the ocean
Moves slow motion
Stop for sounds
Kill the noise
Can you felt
Girls and boys

Time to dance, time to dance, time to dance
Time to dance, time to dance, time to dance

When we go free into
Drive in your car
Forget who you are
Only an option (?)
Only devotion (?)
Clap your hands
Bring your toys
Can you felt
Girls and boys

Time to dance, time to dance, time to dance
Time to dance, time to dance, time to dance

Really Real

I don't feel
My a' love
And I love what to say
I don't want
I don't like
I don't want you to stay

Any love
Any one
Till you feel
Inner song
Any time
Just to mind
And I feel
Inner safe

I don't feel
Even love
‘Cause I'm luck
Without love

I don't feel I'm really real
I don't feel I'm really real
I don't feel I'm really real
I don't feel I'm really real

Inner choice
Inner thought
Too much force
Can change the course
In any life
With any wife
From in my head
And lay in bed

With any heart
With any brain
And any king
This is the same

My hearts a beat
And live in street
And every king
Has ever felt

I don't feel I'm really real
I don't feel I'm really real
I don't feel I'm really real
I don't feel I'm really real

I don't feel how I feel
I don't feel how I feel
I don't feel how I feel
I don't feel how I feel…

Bristol to London

Rasta message:

You know you say I move like a ???
No you say I move like a pussy

Blackman and Marlon Thaws :
London's here
Bristol dere'
Bring all the mother f'ers '
Being scared
Cause I
Run this town
Like need no ground
You waiting to go to the bus
To clam you down
Put the mother of the world
And then we'll make em sound
Gonna run on his problems
Cause I know he is a clown
If you can't breast stroke
With the coat you're bound to drown

Ya straight up and down

Cause when I come though
You see me shinning
I represent chase
And team on team grinding
When you hear me strait
They all say sign him ha
Come on dog I'm one linein'
Especially man up
Who's got the wine in'
You wanna hate
A little cute pussy gettin' lined in
What I wanna do is
Step with my team on the mat
A couple or more of these tracks are rap

This is a hold up
When we roll up
When we run up to the enemy they fold up
This is Bristol and this is London
Collaboration east of the junction

This is a hold up
When we roll up
When we run up to the enemy they fold up
This is Bristol and this is London
Collaboration east of the junction

London's there
Bristol's here
Strait Z fools they's
Up in the gear
Ya misty
Locked up and nobody missed me
Hold the pistol
On the ranks
Ya I know it's risky
Know that the police
They still like to frisk me
They wanna lock me up
Like till I'm over sixty
More of them grew up
Like an old school fisty
Making hit 9 news
Like the prison kids they go
Suck your money
If you think you can diss me
Cause a gun sight
You gonna making wish
They never went a roll
On a beating fist spree
Existy swiftly moving on quickly
Rap mango's god I'm bringing you with me
It's like on E-bay
They bidding to get me
Said that to the gangsta
So they better respect me
Just that
You know this tracks a rap

This is a hold up
When we roll up
When we run up to the enemy they fold up
This is Bristol and this is London
Collaboration east of the junction

Somebody's Sins

( Van Morrison / Patti Smith )

Francesca:
Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine
Meltin' in a pot of thieves
Wild card up my sleeve
Thick heart of stone
My sins my own
They belong to me, me
People say 'beware!'
But I don't care
The words are just
Rules and regulations to me, me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Francesca & Tricky:
Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine
Meltin' in a pot of thieves
Wild card up my sleeve
Thick heart of stone
My sins my own
They belong to me, me
People say 'beware!'
But I don't care
The words are just
Rules and regulations to me, me

Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine
Jesus died for somebody's sins but not mine

Nothing Matters

Nneka-Lucia Egbuna:
It bothers me, it bites me, stings me, deprives me
Off my track, the ways you make me pass, by highways
I am forced to trust your wicked ways
You use me, abuse me, control me, but

Nothing really matters, nothing really matters
This broken heart's a shatter
As long as you love me
But something is the matter, when love deceives it batters
These gunshots are a shatter
So you must love me

In my mind I have killed you, long ago
Born pretender, spirit high jacker, you killed my love for you
Innocent blood, excuse me now, Mr. Right, knight tell me
Stuck in a days, can't even understand no more

Well, nothing really matters, nothing really matters
These broken hearts are shattered
As long as you love me
But something is the matter, when love deceives it batters
These gunshots are a shatter
So you must love me

Born pretender, spirit high jacker, in the name of love
You heart snatcher, backbiter
Yes they are partakers of sucking innocent blood
Nights walking vampires, excuse me now
Introduce me to your industry
'Cause with me you will definitely go very far
Stuck in a daze, can't even understand unknowingly
Approaching the world through a vivid glance
But it concerns me, and it concern us, yet it condemns us
For this is the fact, the truth and it will forever hunt us but

Nothing really matter, nothing really matters,
These broken hearts are shattered
As long as you love me
But something is the matter, when love deceives it batters
These gunshots are a shatter
So you must love me

Valentine

Sample of Chet Baker:
My funny Valentine

Tricky:
Knew a girl used to make me wait for hours
On the train in the rain with some flowers
Street girl used to live in the towers
Real sweet and then sour
Hard life just like Cinderella
Single Mum had a kid with a fella
She was real, real like concrete
By herself walk like she own street
The other fella he was kinda like trash
The son's father but never did give her cash
I said there's things you really shouldn't have to do
Come with me and I'll look after you
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Sample of Chet Baker:
My funny Valentine
(4x)

Francesca:
My Valentine take me away
Council flats make me blind
I try but these towers so grey
Nowhere for my children to play
My baby needs fun
My skin needs the sun
My Valentine

Sample of Chet Baker:
My funny Valentine
(4x)

Tricky:
Knew a girl, street girl
Used to live in the towers
Real sweet and then sour
Hard life just like Cinderella
Single Mum had a kid with a fella

Sample of Chet Baker:
My funny Valentine

Bonnie & Clyde

Francesca & Tricky:
Without a trace
I move to place
We go thirds on it
I grab my gun
Goes down the sun
Tie up the guard with it
We use that rope
Tie up that dope
Make sure it's tight baby
Tell that girl
Don't you speak
And we'll be gone baby
No need to speak
I'll go weak
If I get twelve on it

I shoulda listened
Oh no, time slow
Shoulda listened
Shoulda listened
Oh no, time slow
Shoulda listened
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Can't go by train
Or run to Spain
It's like a game
They're on it
We'll beat this game
But just in case
We'll be gone baby
I hear some shots
It must be cops
Let's go baby
A Car crash
I start to blast
They got five on me
Shots hit my chest
I'm wearing vest
Shoulda run from it

I shoulda listened
Oh no, time slow
I shoulda listened
I shoulda listened
Oh no, time slow

I shoulda listened
Oh no, time slow
I shoulda listened
I shoulda listened
Oh no, time slow...

Parenthesis

Peter Silberman :

One broken wing
Soaring and suffering
Arm in a sling
I don't owe you anything

I'm a bad absentee
You know when I want to leave
So close up your knees
And I'll close your parenthesis
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm a bad amputee
With no phantom memory
So close up your knees
And I'll close your parenthesis


Nothing's Changed

Francesca & Tricky:
Follow where Mary goes
Cherish the things she knows
Says if I change my stride
Then I'll fly

Nothing's changed
Feel the same
It's just shorter days
Still hurt the same

Nothing's changed,
Feel the same
Nothing's changed
I still feel the same

Follow where Mary goes
Cherish the things she knows
Says if I change my stride
Then I'll fly
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Change my stride
Don't think I've tried
I was born a king
Streets calling

Nothing's changed
Feel the same
Nothing's changed
Still feel the same

Tricky:
Nothing's changed
I still feel the same
Nothing's changed
I still hurt the same

Francesca & Tricky:
Nothing's changed
Feel the same
Nothing's changed
Still feel the same

Nothing's changed
Feel the same
Nothing's changed
Still feel the same

If Only I Knew

FiFi Rong:
We floated in the formless
We were in love for just a second
You leave me with all those questions
That lead me to no direction

Was it just me
Your heart I never reached
You decided what it is
And let my heart sink
You decided what it is
Left me no chance to speak

I didn't know that kiss meant goodbye
It's funny how things played out in your mind
I didn't know that kiss meant goodbye
It's funny how things played out in your mind
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
How does it feel like to be so heartless
Why are you breaking me for no reason
Don't you know they're things I never learn
Teach me how to read your sign language

Only if I knew
Why would I want more from you
What kind of man left me to no end

Only if I knew
Why I want more from you
I can't go back then
I've done it again

I didn't know that kiss meant goodbye
It's funny how things played out in your mind
I didn't know that kiss meant goodbye
It's funny how things played out in your mind

I didn't know that kiss meant goodbye
It's funny...

Is That Your Life

Francesca:
Pick up my weed and bring it come
Take what you need
Bring, bring a gun
What you need, we can serve
Want that money, we reserve
We want that car, we want that house
Informer boy, shut your mouth
I lost my boy, I lost my friend
Got locked down, give him ten
My brothers gone, back in again
My cousins gone and shot my friend

Pick up my weed and bring it come
Take what you need, bring bring a gun

Is that your, is that your, is that your life
Think before, think before, you got one life
Is that your, is that your, is that your life
Think before, think before, you got one life

Easy boy, I cut your throat
Smoke that weed, snort the coke
I got caught up, I caught a case
You can't hide, you're not safe
I drive my Porsche, I can't slow down
What's that sound, up on the town
Bring the keys make sure you're armed
Here's the code, switch the alarm
Tie that guy, don't let him breath
On the ground, you can't leave
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Pick up my weed and bring it come
Take what you need, bring bring a gun

Is that your, is that your, is that your life
Think before, think before, you got one life
Is that your, is that your, is that your life
Think before, think before, you got one life

Tricky:
Take what I want, take what I need
Best believe, I feed my greed
Better to take care or seed
You take a break, drink champagne
You touch a bird, you keep your word (?)
You touch a bird, you keep your word (?)

Francesca:
Is that your, is that your
Is that your life
Think before, think before
You got one life

Tribal Drums

Francesca & Tristan Cassell:
Can't seem to find my steps at all
I'm walking
Can't find the words I need to say
Talking
I run around inside my head
Alright
I run around to sound and step
Alright

Can't seem to find my steps at all
I'm walking
Can't find the words I need to say
Talking
I run around inside my head
Alright
I run around to sound and step
Alright

So I'm running in this space
Lose my sights and leave my taste
Evil come and evil go
Evil come and evil go
(2x)

Can't seem to find my way home
I'm calling
No voice, it's just a dialing tone
I'm falling
I'm walking around just like they think
Alright
They say the worst TV is dead
Alright

Can't seem to find my way home
I'm calling
No voice, it's just a dialing tone
I'm falling
I'm walking around just like they think
Alright
They say the worst TV is dead
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
So I'm running in this space
Lose my sights and leave my taste
Evil come and evil go
Evil come and evil go
(2x)

I'm lost and found
I walked on time
I'm lost in sound
I walked in time
I'm lost and found
I walked on time
I'm lost in sound

We Don't Die

Francesca & Tricky:

We don't, we don't
We don't die
We don't, we don't
We don't die

Far we go, away somewhere
Where we go, away don't know
Times not mine, we meet sometime
You rest in peace, your soul release
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We don't, we don't
We don't die
We don't, we don't
We don't die

You won't dance alone, alone with me
Rest your head, enough's been read
Fly you fly, you're home, you're home
You swim in moon, you left too soon

We don't, we don't
We don't die
We don't, we don't
We don't die...

Chinese Interlude

FiFi Rong :

Does It

( feat. Francesca Belmonte )

Tricky:
Does it make you feel good
(Does it) make you feel hood
Can I flow through your vains
Can you make me feel strange (hey)
Can you fall through the sky
Will you leave me and die
Will you come back again
Will you meet me at ten

Francesca:
Where are the protesters
The slogans and sign
This will be a swift decline
I wouldn't be caught dead in love
I wouldn't be caught dead in love
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Tricky:
Will you fight for a cause (hey)
Will you break all the laws (hey)
Will you come back again
Remember back when
Are you living free
Are you leaving with me

Does it make you feel good
(Does it) make you feel hood

Francesca:
Where are the protesters
The slogans and sign
This will be a swift decline
I wouldn't be caught dead in love
I wouldn't be caught dead in love
(2x)

I'm Ready

Tricky:
Ok, I'm ready
Ok, I'm ready

Tricky & Francesca:
Ok, I'm ready, concentrate my mind state heavy
I do a tour and invade like I'm at war no prisoners
What they seeking asylum for
I been insane and I've been contained
Manufactured and you sound the same
Your voice is not choice and your beats are lame
Round and round we all must go until we die
Round and round we all must go until we die
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
There's no freedom and we have none
For the reasons you can choose one
Through the seasons yeah we still try
Don't be worried you can feel fine
Don't you hurry they conceal time
They're too greedy you won't get none
They can steal it take your left lung
There's no freedom and you get none
Round and round we all must go until we die
Round and round we all must go until we die
Round and round we all must go until we die
Round and round we all must go until we die

Hey Love

Tricky:
Hey love how you been love
Long time since I've seen love
Hey love how you been love
Long time since I've seen love
Hey love how you been love
Long time since I've seen love

Remember when, when we met love
Sat in, in the park love
Sat just, just apart love
But not, not for long love
Sat apart not for long love
We grew real strong love
Sat in the park just long love
Just, just long love

Tricky & Francesca:
Leave me alone you'll be alright
Oh be a man don't take it light
Leave me alone you'll be alright
Oh be a man don't take it light

Leave me alone you'll be alright
Oh be a man don't take it light
Leave me alone you'll be alright
Oh be a man don't take it light
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Tricky:
To the noose, to the neck
Boosts, check
Micic, psychic
To the circuit
To the games pains to blame
Make it same
Make it dance, not a chance
See her run, I feel her come
See her run, I feel her come
Totally cunning she is dark heart
No soul, no soul

To the noose, to the neck
To the boosts, to the check
To the micic, to the psychic
To the circuit
To the games pains to blame
To the freedom
Make it rain

Tricky & Francesca:
Leave me alone you'll be alright
Oh be a man don't take it light
Leave me alone you'll be alright
Oh be a man don't take it light

Leave me alone you'll be alright
Oh be a man don't take it light
Leave me alone you'll be alright
Oh be a man don't take it light

Passion Of The Christ

Tricky:
(There's) too many people
Too many dying
Too many lying
Too many crying

(There's) too many voices
So little choices
At night I lie awake
Feels like heartache
Feels like heartache
How long will the night take
How long will the night take
It feels like heartache
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The night has come
They say I rise crime rate
???
I rise my fist the thunder break through
Make a wish who will you run to
(There's) too many prisons taking away from family
Too many reasons to lose your sanity

I lie awake and let the visions take me
Think of life and how it tried to break me
Had no choice, had to settle
Hear a voice now they burn from metal
There's too many shouts and they call it treason
Can't relate and hate without reason
(There's) too many guns, pray for God to come quick
He doesn't come, my God is real sick

Sun Down

Tricky :
You saw my sun down
She makes me run round
Where's the fun now
Where's the fun now

And I full run down
She breaks the love down
I feel real now
She says I'm too proud

Tirzah :

Keep you in the back of my mind
You're always in my sight
Keep you in the back
Keep you in the back of my mind
You're always in my sun
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Where you found out
Is when you talk loud
Don't want to put you down
If you are mine now

Can see you fade out
Why want you stay now
Shadow cost down
You didn't heave on the ground

Keep you in the back of my mind
You're always in my sight
Keep you in the back
Keep you in the back of my mind
You're always in my sun

Tricky :
You saw my sun down
She makes me run round
Where's the fun now
Where's the fun now

And I full run down
She breaks the love down
I feel real now
She says I'm too proud

Tirzah :
Keep you in the back of my mind
You're always in my sight
Keep you in the back
Keep you in the back of my mind
You're always in my sun

Mykki Blanco :
I hit the block Sherlock, they ain't got a clue
Damn Trick, they callin' me a little You
Now I ain't give a fuck yet what them labels do
Nigga take them fables to the stables 'cause they're racin' you
Know they're takin' you for everything you got
Every single verse, a slot machine stops
They got your DNA and they the dollars
Livin' on the leash that's a contract to collar, holler
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake

Francesca Belmonte & Tricky :

No, they're just pop stars driving in their cop cars
For real, man
For real, man

Something In The Way

Francesca Belmonte :
Call me
How have you been
How is your girl
Why haven't you seen me
Music swings and I get weak
Fixed to fall
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Seems there's something in the way
Until I'm on the ground
Got nothing left to say
Until I'm homeward bound

So leave me where I lay
Your role is over now
So leave me where I lay
Your role is over now

Your role is over now
Your role is over now

See the games you play
You go a-round and round
Wash away the grey
Can you hear the sound

So leave me where I lay
Your role is over now
So leave me where I lay
Your role is over now

Your role is over now
Your role is over now

Your role is over now
Your role is over now
Your role is over now

*** Thanx a lot to Elliott for this one ***

Keep Me In Your Shake

Tricky :
I'm already walking
This sunny morning
Can't stop the talking
The dogs are barking
Can't wait for Sunday
It's heartbreak Monday
Let's keep it to this fun day
Then keep me in your ???
Now keep me in your
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Nneka :
Shake, shake, shake, shake
Till you get enough
Shake, shake
Is it getting rough
Shake, shake, shake

Oh, the kind of things you do
To control my mind
Oh the kind of things you do
To keep me under your bondage
You got my soul under your feet
You got my spirit

Tricky :
Now keep me in your

Nneka :
Shake, shake, shake, shake

Nneka :
Shake, shake, shake, shake
Till you get enough

The Unloved

Alan Johnson:
Why have some of my friends died
Dedicate to the fallen friends in the streets
The loved
The unloved
Now they're forgotten (?)
We must make ... nothing
Think of your ways
Try making the world thinking of you
Keeping your memories alive
We demand recognition for the fallen soldiers of the streets
We need a revolution
We got (?) all the top men
The bad men
Let's start a revolution
Teach the kids how to... the streets...
Why's in the world...
We're meant to be intelligent animals
Why have we lost so many in the streets
fighting and getting involved in the darker aspects
Or misunderstanding
This precious fragile life
We need a positive revolution
Take back the world
Whose world is this
It's ours
The masses
The revolution people

Nicotine Love

( feat. Francesca Belmonte )


Dance with dark hearts
And big stars
Nicotine love
I'll kick you to the tar
I'm river running far
I drive you to the stars
And we fall from above
You feel when I sing
'Cause I bring love
'Cause I bring love
Nicotine love

And when you speak out they shoot you down
Where are all the good men they're not around
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You can walk hard
And talk fast
Take it too far
I'm clicking to the bar
You can jump in your car
You won't get very far
They don't need to be near
They can see where you are
I bring love

And when you speak out they shoot you down
Where are all the good men they're not around

I had a dream

( feat. Francesca Belmonte )

I took these smokes
And I don't understand
Roll roach lay weed
What you're saying, man
Lick skin I toke
I float and I'm home with you

And I lay 'cause I like
All the skin that you're in
Like your hands, like your soul
And the flow, like your sins
And I'm all kinds of blue

I had a vision last night
Grass was green, the sun was bright
Been alarmed
In a dream
???
What does it all mean

I've told you already
I walk through walls
Walk through the past and
Talk to souls

I hear them now
Hear what they sing
??? is good
But I'm a king

I'm trying to keep control
Stop lying and clean my soul
Burn the suts so I bring the blues
Loving much so I hope it soothes

I took these smokes
And I don't understand
Roll roach lay weed
What you're saying, man
Lick skin I toke
I float and I'm home with you

And I lay 'cause I like
All the skin that you're in
Like your hands, like your soul
And the flow, like your sins
And I'm all kinds of blue

My Palestine Girl

Tricky :
And she's got a wiggle when she walk
A giggle when she talk
She's close to God
I dribble like a dog
She's my Palestine girl
My Palestine baby
She drive me crazy
The sun make me lazy

I take a trip to Gaza
It's love I'm really after
She tells me happy, be
We walk happily
I haven't seen her lately
I worry about her safety
I take a trip to Gaza
It's really love I'm after
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If she's trapped in Babylon
Tell her that I won't be long
If she's trapped in Babylon
Tell her that I won't be long
If she's trapped in Babylon
Tell her that I won't be long
If she's trapped in Babylon
Tell her that I won't be long

Blue Daisy :
Imprisoned in Babylon
This city is sin
A state of mind with thoughts of horror is so fucking frightening
These demons are out to run their course
A living corpse dead to any feeling
Not meant to cross with blood-hungry whores
Unloading semen, unrested feeling
No rest for the wicked there ‘til they've paid secretin'
But to them she's creepin'
Through the night of sleepin'
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Tricky :
I take a trip to Gaza
It's really love I'm after
I take a trip to Gaza
It's really love I'm after

If she's trapped in Babylon
Tell her that I won't be long
If she's trapped in Babylon
Tell her that I won't be long
If she's trapped in Babylon
Tell her that I won't be long
If she's trapped in Babylon
Tell her that I won't be long

Why Don't You

Bella Gotti :
I don't want to be told what to do
So fuck I hate, it's opinions and fuckin' views
I don't fuck with you, I'ma do what I do
I do shit and if they spit, I cannot do
And I'm gettin' 'em mad to get wilder now
Heads will crack when the guitar smash
Fence on my back when the crowd react
They get high off their fixes and loving that
I'm loving cash, rugged trash, rock and roll all over the gap
Dr. Martens and a bomber jacket on my back
They're barely in one part, you know where I'm at
'Cause me - I get down like that
Choke the feelings, I'm a heartattack
I'm back - you wanna be part of that
I'm nothin' but a motherfuckin' maniac
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Tricky :
Why don't you
Why don't you
Why don't you go and get fucked
Why don't you
Why don't you
Why don't you go and get fucked

Bella Gotti :
I don't want to be shown how to live
You are gonna find me with a tribalist
I say shit I like, I'm an arsonist
If you ain't feelin' it, then give my ass a kiss
And I'll make you sick, I go nuts for shit
Fuckin' up the bass and drum in this
I'm a leader, bitch, so let me lead a bitch
Here's to the poor comin' for the rich
'Cause I'm loving cash, I'm a gutter lass
Party animal until I'm dead tonight
Me - I give you cardiac
Give me what I want, don't play, I'm tainted now
'Cause me - I'm a prompt inmate
Smash this place like a broken plate
I'm sick - you wanna be part of this
I'm an English black girl herbalist

Tricky :
Why don't you
Why don't you
Why don't you go and get fucked
Why don't you
Why don't you
Why don't you go and get fucked

Why don't you go and get fucked
Actin' like you can get touched
You disagree - you don't see much
You're like a chick, when she's like three months
You want a free lunch - pussy boy, go crunch
Lies twists and bends, it usually ends
So why don't you go and get fucked
Why don't you go and get fucked
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Go and get fucked
Go and get fucked
Go and get fucked
Go and get fucked

Bella Gotti :
I don't want to be told what to say
There's enough I'm gonna say whatever's on my brain
I don't play any games, better stay in your lane
When I bust away, don't remember my name
And I'm gettin' to Rome 'cause they love my snow
Give me an English motherfucker and I'll take ‘em all
I'm a crazy child with no score too small
We around in the hood, the police will speed dial
I'm lovin' this, I take a piss
I can piano with two fingers, bitch
And two big guns, so the menace is rich
Aim, fire, will not miss
‘Cause you - you wanna live like this
You wanna break all the rules and start some shit
I'm sick - you wanna be just like me
You wanna break all the laws
I'm not meant to breed

Tricky :
Why don't you
Why don't you
Why don't you go and get fucked
Why don't you
Why don't you
Why don't you go and get fucked

Silly Games

( feat. Tirzah - Janet Kay cover )

I've been wanting you
For so long, it's a shame
Oh, baby
Every time I hear your name
Oh, the pain
Boy, how it hurts me inside

'Cause every time we meet
We play hide and seek
I'm wondering what I should do
Should I, come up to you
And say
How do you do
When you turn me away

You're as much to blame
'Cause I know you feel the same
I can see it in your eyes
But I've got no time to live this life
No, I've got no time to play your silly games
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Yet, in my mind I say
If he makes his move today
I'll just pretend to be shy
And baby it's a tragedy
That you and me
We don't even try

You're as much to blame
'Cause I know you feel the same
I can see it in your eyes
But I've got no time to live this life
No, I've got no time to play your silly games

Right Here

(Featuring Oh Land)

I'm a person
Not a number
You take your time
It makes me wonder
She's by my side
Until we stop
She likes to dance
To disco rock
Then you let me
Come and get me
I feel alone
So don't you stop
So don't you stop

My teeth and soul, my hair
My person, oh my care
And my parents show my fears
My grief, my soul, right here

My teeth and soul, my hair
My person, oh my care
And my parents show my fears
My grief, my soul, right here

We need more mouthful
We slide across floor
We learn my turn
Go slow but be firm
Be good, be bad
Be mad, be sad
Be first, be twice
Be good, be nice
Need more, real near
Lose you, my real fear
???
Leave toward a new car
Don't you stop

My teeth and soul, my hair
My person, oh my care
And my parents show my fears
My grief, my soul, right here

So don't you stop
So don't you stop

I'm on the stairs
Do you care
I was there
I'm the wicked I can deal
Where you go
The door, the door
I'm so sick and tired
Lying low
The door, the door

So don't you stop

My teeth and soul, my hair
My person, oh my care
And my parents show my fears
My grief, my soul, right here

My teeth and soul, my hair
My person, oh my care
And my parents show my fears
My grief, my soul, right here

ESP

( Feat. Liz Densmore )


Just around the corner
Right around the bend
I try to move forwards
But backwards is my friend

Like magnets I attract to you
Transparent, you, I can see straight through
Find our weather pattern
Your rings and I'm Saturn
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Forces we can fight are
Courses run right into each
Other sources tell us we mix
Oh so very well

Hypothetically I
Soon know future for you or me
I love supersonic
Our love's alcoholic

Forces we can fight are
Courses run right into each
Other sources tell us we mix
Oh so very well

Forces we can fight are
Courses run right into each
Other sources tell us we mix
Oh so very well

Forces we can fight are
Courses run right into each
Other sources tell us we mix

*** Thanx a lot to Elliott for this one ***

Different People

( Feat. Francesca Belmonte )

Different people
Different ways
Slip through time
Nothing stays
Everybody
I've ever known
Feel their sadness
Now I've grown
Look my best
In new clothes
From my head
To my toes

How would they know
How would they know
Press stop, then go
Just let them know
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
If I lose my sight
If I lose my fight
You just don't know
If I lose my fame
If I cloak my face
You just don't know
Will I stub my toe
Will I watch them go
You just don't know
Just don't know
Just don't know

How would they know
How would they know
Press stop, then go
Just let them know

*** Thanx a lot to Elliott for this one ***

Skilled Mechanics

I'm Not Going

(Feat. Oh Land)

Over - until my head hurts
Over - until my brain works
Endure
Endure
Over - be my sweetheart
Over - that's where the pain starts
Endure

I'm not really into it
I'm not really into it
Click and I'm dead

I'm not really into it
I'm not really into it
Click and I'm dead
Click and I'm dead
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We go into
I fade away into
Over - where have you been love
Over - what do you think of?
Endure

I'm not really into it
I'm not really into it
Click and I'm dead

I'm not really into it
I'm not really into it
Click and I'm dead

Hero

(Feat. Ann Dao)

Where she goes – nobody knows
She likes to shop and buy clothes (gimme money)
So many shoes, so many rows
Summer dress with her nice pink toes
I said hello, she said I'm pro
She wants a hero like De Niro
By the hour, playing power may be zero
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman

What she wants – nobody knows
How she feels in those real tight clothes
But she's alone, no – wants Perry Como
She's kinda sour, likes to power like Bono
She ask my name (what's your name) and what's my game (a hustle)
I said a hustle, same like Russell
By the hour, playing power using muscle

I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman

I'll be your superman
I'll be your superman

I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman
I'll be your hero, I'll be your superman

*** Thanx a lot to Elliott for this one ***

Don't Go

Don't go, don't move
No lie, can't lose
It's OK today
Can't lose, no way
She only lonely
She phone me, says I'm so phony
She punch and kick, she fight like Tony

I leave her lonely
She like to only
She like to fold me, she like to hold me
She like to fold me, she like to hold me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Come and rock with me slow
Into your light, when we go
All the time that we spend
That isn't slow when it ends

Come and rock with me slow
Into your light, when we go
All the time that we spend
That isn't slow when it ends

It's my sins today
You didn't die it's OK
God left me lonely
He's such a phony
Politicians rape me
Church tried to own me

*** Thanx a lot to Elliott for this one ***

Diving Away

(Porno For Pyros "Porpoise Head" Cover Feat. Luke Harris)

Here I lay waiting
For the bubbles to settle
I'm going down low
Where your sleep meets your mental
Two tries at killing me
They couldn't do it
I ran down the road
With no shoes and no jacket
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Here I go dive away
Watch me dive away

I know young boys
They all want to be bad
Don't think it's madder
To be a genius
Give me a lover
That won't give me troubles
Some sexy dreams
To chew on these bubbles

Here I go dive away
Watch me dive away

Here I go dive away
Watch me dive away

Here I go dive away
Watch me dive away

*** Thanx a lot to Elliott for this one ***

Boy

(Feat. Ann Dao)

At 12 I met my dad, his name was Roy
He forget my name, he called me “boy”
I met a girl, I jumped for joy
Stealing cars and play with toys
No time to grow because my mother go
To the otherside, she choose suicide
But I can't complain though I miss her such
Got some sisters, but we don't stay in touch

I dream, I'm drowning
Asthma – I can't breathe
Slip into the darkness
But I don't leave

I dream, I'm drowning
Asthma – I can't breathe
Slip into the darkness
But I don't leave
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
At 16 I left school, half-way criminal
Smoke weed in council flats until my lungs collapse
My uncle's movin' muscle, me and would-be hustle
Keep the dream alive and try to sign with Russell
And get a record deal, but with his way too real
My nana lost my mum then she lost her son
Those memories ripe, killed my Uncle Mike
Heard my nana scream, no it's not a dream

I dream, I'm drowning
Asthma – I can't breathe
Slip into the darkness
But I don't leave

I dream, I'm drowning
Asthma – I can't breathe
Slip into the darkness
But I don't leave

I dream, I'm drowning
Asthma – I can't breathe
Slip into the darkness
But I don't leave

I dream, I'm drowning
Asthma – I can't breathe
Slip into the darkness
But I don't leave

I dream, I'm drowning
Asthma – I can't breathe
Slip into the darkness
But I don't leave

I dream, I'm drowning
Asthma – I can't breathe
Slip into the darkness
But I don't leave

*** Thanx a lot to Elliott for this one ***

Bother

(Stone Sour Cover Feat. Luke Harris)

Wish I was too dead to cry
My self-affliction fades
Stones to throw at my creator
Masochists to which I cater

You don't need to bother
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

Wish I was too dead to care
If indeed I cared at all
Never had a voice to protest
So you fed me shit to digest
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I wish I had a reason
My flaws are open season
For this, I gave up trying
One good turn deserves my dying

You don't need to bother
I don't need to be
I'll keep slipping farther
But once I hold on
I won't let go 'til it bleeds

How's Your Life

(Featuring Luke Harris)

I'm ???
How d'you know
I hardly sleep
I hardly breathe
I stay inside
I hardly leave

How you doing
How's your wife
You watch TV
You think it's life
It's interesting
How you been
Go down South
And move to a house

Where's my friends
Where does it end
Life's a test ‘cause we know it ends

I watch you fall down any day
I watch you fall now anyway
I feel him breathing as they talk
I feel him leaving as they walk

I watch you fall down any day
I watch you fall now anyway
I feel him breathing as they talk
I feel him leaving as they walk

How's it is, how's it last
Played out rappers talking guns and cash
But I love though
Now you know
The heat subsides then we go

To ride on through till it ends
Don't rely on friends, never get the bends
There's only you, there's only true
See the truth, enjoy the view
Cause we lonely now count to 10
Go around the world and back again

I watch you fall down any day
I watch you fall now anyway
I feel him breathing as they talk
I feel him leaving as they walk

I watch you fall down any day
I watch you fall now anyway
I feel him breathing as they talk
I feel him leaving as they walk

Breathe
Breathe
We won't ever die
If we
Breathe
Breathe
Breathe
We won't
Ever
Die
If we
If we breathe
Breathing
We won't
Ever
Die
Soulless

I watch you fall down any day
I watch you fall now anyway
I feel him breathing as they talk
I feel him leaving as they walk

I watch you fall down any day
I watch you fall now anyway
I feel him breathing as they talk
I feel him leaving as they walk

Here My Dear

(Featuring Milo)

Here my dear
Bring you near
Won’t complain
Contain my fear

World’s insane
With black rain
Where we go
I don’t know

Pains increase
Where’s the peace
Microphone
Like my tone
Fully groomed
With ???
You’re no friend
Hate me then

Every time I feel the rain
That’s the time I feel the pain
I walk the streets and the lights were glow
I hear my steps now I’m alone

Where’s your stop
Load and lock
You can’t block
Police men park

Winter come
Splinter drum
See my pain
Then there so plain
This ?? my car
So insane
Reveal my name

This love true
Swim into
I’ve been a fool
I see through

Every time I feel the rain
That’s the time I feel the pain
I walk the streets and the lights were glow
I hear my steps now I’m alone

Every time I feel the rain
That’s the time I feel the pain
I walk the streets and the lights were glow
I hear my steps now I’m alone

Every time I feel the rain
That’s the time I feel the pain
I walk the streets and the lights were glow
I hear my steps now I’m alone

We Begin

Francesca Belmonte :

There's no way I can help your loss
Just another river we have to cross
You begin

No need to say, we know your loss
Another day what a lie I'm across
You begin

All the pain how much it cost
Though there's rain and there's always loss
You begin

Be with me
Your breath slow down
Stay with me
I'll keep you calm
Flying high
I can't slow down
Stay with me
It's where you're from

There's no way I can help your loss
Just another river we have to cross

Well

Hear those bells
Stuck in sales

When he fails
Stuck in Wales
Still he'll do well
Probably sell
Ended up in Mexico
Now he works in Tesco

Well, can't fail
He used to be a rockstar, now no one gives a fuck star
Well, do you do well
And do yourself, not for wealth
Don't care for fame, bad for the brain
Said I'll do well, I'll probably sell
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
You're tired now
And there's far to go
There's far to swim
And there's far to roam

You're tired now
There's far to go
Far to swim
And far to roam

You're tired now
And there's far to go
There's far to swim
And there's far to roam

Well, did you do well

I used to rock'n'roll play
Rock a little gold chain

Hell, I'm in hell
Can't you tell
Can't you tell

You lived a dream
How you mean
Movin' loose
Move with a team

Well, you're doin' well
Well, you're doin' well

You're tired now
And there's far to go
There's far to swim
And there's far to roam

You're tired now
There's far to go
Far to swim
And far to roam

You're tired now
And there's far to go
There's far to swim
And there's far to roam

Hell
I used to rock'n'roll play
Rock a little gold chain
Hell

You're tired now
And there's far to go
There's far to swim
And there's far to roam

You're tired now
There's far to go
Far to swim
And far to roam

You're tired now
And there's far to go
There's far to swim
And there's far to roam

Necessary

(Featuring Milo)

I'm out of time
Oh that's fine
Make it plain
Your silly games
Out of sight
Out of mind
Please don't play
Please rewind

Miss you much
Tasting touch
On my knees
I try to please
My pains on pause
It's not like yours
When night time comes
Sleep will keep me calm

Night time come
See the moon
Run and hide
Should really side

(Silly games)

Come taste my fame
And walk my shoes
But you might lose
You just don't fuck
You silly cunt
You might like stress
You can do your best
??? best
But I feel like a mannequin
I smoke and drink
I float I sink

Your love
Your blood
Your love
Necessary
Love
Your love
Your blood
Your love
Necessary
Love

Unreal

Renata Platon:
I feel you
No I'm unreal
I'm unreal

I, always, always
I will stay, stay, stay

I feel you
No I'm unreal
I'm unreal

I, always, always
I will stay, stay, stay

Marlon:
What d'ya wanna be when you go out and be older?
Think you betta be (a) hustler (or) baller?
Do you really wanna look over your shoulder?
Driving in the Lex, the Beamer?
All I need is a little bit of weed,
Never really given, never need no speed,
No ecstasy, the one that falsie,
Slide down beside a gal when she drowsy,
Tribe people neva know bout me, never realize I'm the brother's MC,
And I'm wicked, and you know it's so wet,
And you never can really give me another crack,
When you needed a loss, but make it long,
Break your backbone, leave you in a thong,
Bleeding from the gun,
Like Shinobi, never see me, never know me,
Charles, you know we never go down low, see.

Hawkman:
(2x)Well a figure wanna dis about dem car,
A hot gal a figure dem go draw,

Well den, we tun (turn) it straight to de nitty gritty,
Money dem no pity, hot bwoy fi dead and bury (buried),

Boots smack, bootstrap,

To the mickick, to the psychic,
To the circuit, to the games.
I see her run, I see her come,
Don‘t get cornered, she's got a gun.
No soul (6x), I see her run,
I see her come, dark heart,
No soul (4x)
Boots smack, boot strap,
Boots smack, boot strap,
I see her run, I see her come,
Don't get cornered, dark heart- no soul,
No soul (4x),
See her run,
See her come,
She's the lifeline, to my heartbeat,
And I can't feel, my heartbeat,
Lifeline, to my heartbeat,
Can't feel, my heartbeat,
Can't feel, Don't feel,
Can't feel, Don't feel,
Lifeline, heartbeat,
Don't feel, Don't feel,
Can't feel, Can't feel,

Aftermath (1st Version)

( Aftermath EP )

"Let me tell you about my mother..." ( From the film, Blade runner )

Martina :
For one, (more poor boy), there's someone
For he for she
For one (more poor boy), there's someone
For him, for me

Tricky & Martina :
Your eyes resemble mine, you see as no others can
Here inherit my kingdom, speak of our people's plan
I'll be here for my baby, for my baby I'll be near
So many things I need to tell you, things you need to hear

Tricky :
It was a day like no other
Clocks [hanging off]
It was said they dropped the bomb
And I walked out the door
Feeling lonely, [I see rain/as a ray]
Thinking of what was once
So I go in search of people
[Song of] the inhabitants
The air is filled with chemicals
So this is the aftermath
Walking over rubble
Which was once [cause's calf]
Down to the center
Which used to be central

Martina :
So this is the aftermath

For one, (more poor boy), there's someone
For he for she
For one (more poor boy), there's someone
For him, for me

Tricky & Martina :
Your eyes resemble mine, you see as no others can
Here inherit my kingdom, speak of our people's plan
I'll be here for my baby, for my baby I'll be near
So many things I need to tell you, things you need to hear

Martina :
For one, (more poor boy), there's someone
For he for she
For one (more poor boy), there's someone
For him, for me

"How can I
"How can I
How can I be sure
In a world that's constantly changing
How can I be sure

Just when I thought I was winning
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
Just when I thought I was winning
Just when I thought I could not be stopped
How can I be sure

Ancoats 2 Zambia

(Baby Namboos)

Go as a luxury pass on to the middle class
While the poor play in parks filled with broken glass
And as we point our fingers we turn our backs
We can't accept each other and that's a matter of fact
Indoctrinated you since you were a boy
Ever since the day you've seen the rich kids
Told within a year you'd be a part of them
Broke away from the grape and this all started it
So you won't stay or take a drug at all
'Cause you know you're so susceptible
They turn against you, now you're full of hate
You can't accept it, now you're in an irate state

This is Wrecks-N-Effects and i shake up their flex
They got techs break their necks 
And their building their reps
Who the Boos
Who to choose how they wearin' the shoes
In army I enlist and takin' a piss
Certain things I have seen
So i'm lookin' to grieve
Powers usually runnin'
They're buyin' the buildings
And then they sell
At least a bell and they're breakin' 'em down
My life to the rocks
Livin' in a shoebox
Social security
They like the poor in me
Bring out the whore in me
Then knock the door on me
Cheap tricks don't like chicks
And I'm rubbin' their hips
Who the Boos 
Who to choose how they wearin' the shoes

It was a long time ago and started to grow
Forest fire earned and sent me afrocentric negroes
So i juxtapose
This goes out to those 
Who turned up their nose a long time ago
Now i flex upon a rhythm cushion tempo
I flex upon a rhythm cushion tempo
So open your mind
If you feel you could go
Clean out your ears well
While i clear my throat
The vital ingredient, the antidote
Willy Wee flex like some other one

It's a feelin' that I get sometimes
When I'm lyin' in my bed sometimes
Black cloud in my head sometimes
Intoxicating my mind, my mind
It's not that I wanna die
Baby just that I wanna fly
But this feelin' that I get sometimes
I could sever all ties, all ties

Hate the color of my skin sometimes
Hates to see what I see sometimes
So how can i ever win my time
I was sold on the other side

'Cause a wasted life is no such thing
There's no such thing as a wasted life
'Cause life is death and death is life
And these here thoughts are not a crime
One day is forever, forever is a day
It's so fucking easy to throw it all away

*** Thanx a lot to Elliott & Emerson for this one ***

Anti Histamine

(Broken Homes EP)

Tricky

Why'd you fall sour over me?
You know you have no power over me
I get on your nerves so I twitch
My friends call me "bitch"
But that okay cause I'm your bitch
I'm your rich bitch and
I got money, money I got
She likes me a lot
Cause I'm... a go go jupiter joy
A ghetto boy
Unfortunately, she gives me a boy
If I find out I'm not the only one
I'ma chew you up like bubble-gum
I'ma tear your mouth and nose off
If you dare to take your clothes off

Martina
(repeating throughout background)

Seemed like the real thing
Only to find
Mucho mistrust
Love's gone behind


Tricky


I wouldn't want distance from you
You test my muscle? vein to see if I was true
Never liked my new spouses cause I crept from strange houses
I keep tellin' em don't give a fuck about millennium
Why'd you fall sour over me?
You know you have no power over me
I get on your nerves so I twitch
My friends call me "bitch"
But that's okay cause I'm your rich bitch and
I got money, money I got
She likes me a lot
I keep tellin' em don't give a fuck about millennium

If I find out I'm not the only one
I'ma chew you up like bubble-gum
I'ma tear your mouth and nose off
If you dare to take your clothes off
I keep tellin' em don't give a fuck about millennium
I'ma chew you up like bubble-gum
She likes me a lot
If I find out I'm not the only one
I'ma chew you up like bubble-gum
Come on
She likes me a lot, she likes me a lot
If you dare to take your clothes off ...
( repeat again and again ... )

It was a gas!

Blue lines

(Massive Attack)

Tricky

Can't be with the one you love then love the one you're with
Spliff in the ashtray, red stripe I pull the lid
Her touch tickles, especially when she's gentle
But I don't hear her words 'cause I slide the instrumental
Keep the girl in the distance, moves are very hazy
No sunshine in my life the way I deal is shady

3D

Skip hip data to get the anti-matter
Blue lines are the reason why the temple had to shatter
To the sound of silence surrounded by the mass
Her face is on the paper not the strangers that I pass
The ones that looking back to see if they are looking back at me

Daddy G

Are you predator or do you fear me

3D

Yeah while I'm doing this I know
The place I really wanna go
The one I love but never gets near me

Tricky

It's a beautiful day, well it seems as such
Beautiful thoughts means I dream too much
Even if I told you, you still would not know me
Tricky never does, adrian mostly gets lonely
How we live in this existence, just being
English upbringing, background carribean

3D

It's the way that we ?bility?
Sharing a soliloquy
We cut the broken thread from flexibility
Mi chiamo 3D si sono Inglese
No sunshine in my life 'cause the way I deal is hazy
And everyday's a daisy 'cause I'm on my toes
While contemporaries of mine remaining comatose

Tricky

There's a looking glass she's looking through
She hated me, but then she loved me too
I'd lie not try so I lost faith
Then turn to her to keep the faith
She told me take an occupation or you lose your mind
And on a nine to five lemon, looking for the lime

3D

Box clever, watch your system come together
Crazy weather at the end of my tether

Daddy G

Massive in the area, murderer
Attack inna the area, murderer

3D

Some go softly softly round the habitat
Ratchet in the right hand
They got no one to stab it at
Take a walk billy, don't be a hero
Effort's on minimal though almost touch zero
Excommunicated from the brotherhood of man
To wander lonely as a puzzled anagram

Car paint blue, green, primer and zinc
Take it to extremities my purple and pink
I feel the colours fill my room beneath the patter of the rain
I can't stand the drops they're dripping down my windowpane
They wash away my shadow and don't even leave a spark upon my soul
They leave the rainbows in the dark

Tricky

Blues get big, massive are even larger
Save nuff space into the tricky tardis
We'd trawl what I saw from down in darren's hall
People laying their claim
In stormy weather it's rain

3D

But you're living on a see-saw

Tricky

I try to see more

3D

Somebody da-ditty, no body
Walking on sunshine, but still we're treading water
The son of many reasons searching for the daughter
Seeking knowledge, not acknowledging the jetset
Silver papers of the sound within my budakon headset
The solar system watches in wisdom
The children dance as the moonlight kissed them

Tricky

To Massive attack Matt Black appear wearing beads
Two hours traveling so I wrote this on repeat
Always living fast, people getting jumpy
Where on ?gruggy? falls I do the walter crumpy
Microphones held close, crouching far apart
Take my piece of mind and sign my name across your heart

*** Thanx to Axel & for this one and  Winjer who updated this one ***

Bombing bastards

( For real EP )

I'm bombing bastards
Forever after us
Carrying an equation
It's like I'm Asian
You heard fantastic
We cross the Atlantic
They say I'm not normal-a
I'm the kid with the formula
It must be my mind reign
I'll make your back break
And your knees bend
Your sucking me friend
What do we do?
We do the voodoo
I send the energy
To a enemy
And fucking Ronald Reagan
It's 'cause I'm Pagan
Is that you, boy?
I see your decoy
Enter the arena
I'm full of schizophrenia
I lop 'em in a minute
And do the schizofrantic

Stop them poses
'Cause this is what a flow is

Stop them poses
'Cause this is what a flow is

I'm bombing bastards
Forever after us
Carrying an equation
It's like I'm Asian
You heard fantastic
We cross the Atlantic
They say I'm not normal-a
I'm the kid with the formula
It must be my mind reign
I'll make your back break
And your knees bend
Your sucking me friend
What do we do?
We do the voodoo
I send the energy
To a enemy

I'm bombing bastards
Forever after us

I'm bombing bastards
Forever after us

Here come the aliens
We're the aliens
We're the failing ones

Here come the aliens
We're the aliens
We're the failing ones

Here come the aliens
We're the aliens
We're the failing ones

Here come the aliens
We're the aliens
We're the failing ones

Can't freestyle

 ( Unreleased )

Tricky:

See how the boy test
I lead with my left
(Just lead with my left)
Relieve the stress

See how the boy test
I just lead with my left
Relieve the stress

Take the test
You want an F
Relieve the stress
Before I'd cross
Most of us boss
Who's the bomb
Shalom
Just leak 'em
I'm gonna seek 'em
That the weak ones copy my phrases
Or take from my pages
Saying you're a relation
I can do the vibration
Is your name Quaye son
Or are you just trying to have fun

Boy them stress
Just lead with my left
Relieve the stress

Just a come with me
And what if you are
You might laugh 'cause
I can't freestyle
That don't matter
I just chit-chatter
From the top of my dome
I take it to Rome
Back to Mexico

See them boy test
Just lead with my left
Relieve the stress

This boy who wants to be related
Wanna be my cousin
Wanna be my blood
(Blood)
But he gets no love
He gets no love
'cause I don't see you
I can't see you
Never been back around the days
I see the lies on your page
And you're doing interviews
You should take no note
Try to act like me in what comes out of your throat
It's like you are not my blood

See when those boys stress
Just lead them with left
Relieve the stress

Given where I cross
Who's the boss
Who's the bomb
Shalom
Just leak 'em
Gonna seek 'em
Weak 'em
Calling yourself Quaye
Leave that for another day
Don't you feel no shame
Taking my mother's name in vain
Are you really a Quaye
And if you are how come I never met you before
Maybe a year ago when I was on tour
I booked you into the hotel
I know your name is Magowells
You probably changed 'cause
Supreme
Probably your chains on
Who the bomb
Kid you're funnier than the just go bunny
It might grow until now
You're bound to fail
(Just take)
Take

Boy them stress

Chaos

( Childline LP - Tricky and A. Smith a.k.a Ambersunshower )

Ambersunshower :

She's been waiting for that special someone
Anguished by the tears left behind them
Fortifying all that lying
Putrid taste left in her mouth

Chorus :
(Ambersunshower sings while Tricky raps)

Ambersunshower :

Follow me, follow me
Down
Follow me, follow me
Down

Tricky :

Yeah, c'mon
Let's do the maniac
Maniac, bumping like a brainiac
Brainiac, I don't remember [?]
Land me down, touch me down at heathrow
Reach down, the first time I ever feel
Bouncers [face?] on 57th st
Calm down, I feel a cool breeze and
Not particular
I think I found a reason
[For I saw?] what I saw

Ambersunshower :

She's been waiting for that special someone
But then look what she's got left
Fortifying all that lyingputrid taste left in her mouth

Chorus :
(Ambersunshower sings while Tricky raps)

Ambersunshower :

Follow me, follow me
Down
Follow me, follow me
Down

Tricky :

Yeah, c'mon
Let's do the maniac
Maniac, bumping like a brainiac
Brainiac, I don't remember [?]
Land me down, touch me down at heathrow
Reach down, the first time I ever feel
Bouncers [face?] on 57th st
Calm down, I feel a cool breeze and
Not particular
I think I found a reason
[For I saw?] what I saw

A: contamination cramps the surface
blood runs cooler than you flow
she is hiding smiles behind whispers and tears
chaos reaches higher ground

Ambersunshower :

Chaos, chaos, chaos

Ambersunshower :

Follow me, follow me
Down
Follow me, follow me
Down

Tricky
Cradle to grave x6

Grace Jones


I am woman
I am sun
I can give birth to she
I can give birth to son
And I can be cool
Soft as a breeze
I'll be a hurricane
Ripping up trees

Can't see where I run
No matter how far x4

I am woman
I am sun
I can give birth to she
I can give birth to son
And I can be cool
Soft as a breeze
I'll be a hurricane
Ripping up trees

I am woman
I am sun

Lonesome man wiser boy x2

I can scheme
Oh I can lie
I'll take care of you till the day you die
I can hold brush
I can push broom
When i walk by flowers will bloom

Lonesome man wiser boy x2

I'll be a hurricane
Ripping up trees

You keep taking x6
I keep aching

I can scheme
Oh I can lie
I'll take care of you till the day you die
I'll be a hurricane
Ripping up trees
You keep taking x6
I keep aching x13

Crazy claws

( Mission Accomplished EP )

She's too complex
Then we sex
Open legs
To the vein
I complain
Sniff cocaine
Harder back, heart attack
Smack to my vein
Smash down the walls
Smash down the walls
She crazy claws
She crazy claws

Imagine that
Who that?
I'll soon forget
She wants to fly
She wants to cry
She wants to fly
Makes me wanna die
She'll mix emotion
She's an ocean
She's still alive
She's still alive

Don't forget
Don't regret
Don't see me now
Don't see me then
See me now
Come see again
Don't see me now
Don't see me then

She's too complex
Then we sex
Open legs, open legs
She see my vein
I complain
And sniff cocaine
And sniff cocaine
Hard back, hard attack
Smack to my vein
Smack to my vein
Smash down the walls
Smash down the walls
She crazy claws
She crazy claws

Imagine that
Who that crazy cat?
Imagine that
Who that?
I'll soon forget
She wants to fly
She wants to cry
Makes me wanna, wanna die
She'll mix emotion
Like she's an ocean
She's still alive
Just don't forget
(She's still alive)

Don't regret
Don't see me now
(Crazy cat)
Don't see me now
Don't see me then
(Yeah)
Don't see me now

(Yeah)

She's too Gen-X
Then we flex
She's too Gen-X
Then we sex
She's too Gen-X
Then we sex
Imagine that
I will soon forget
Sniff cocaine
I complain

Try to pick a fight with my chick
'Cause she might put a fine stick right quick
Fought city girls then we tried shit
Then it's off to Chanel's, hit nice Brits
The babes with the skinny waist and wide hips
Ain't just a pretty face with nice tits
She's on to me left well alone
What a pace, Scarface to get the telephone
From the mouth to the right ear
Then she might yell with her
I see her and boy take off the mic and
In my world the babes are quite rare
Me and my girl would make a nice pair
She ain't slow when it's time to make go
Like fake 'ho frontin' on the main road
My blue-billed girl that takes the payroll
With the crew, with their dirty faces and halos
Stay low- trying to sell that snow
My bitch so hot they call her El Paso
See the slap I flop with that though
Or the little black 'ho
I'm pattin' my afro
I'm jokin' but you know how that go
She likes to be in full control like Castro
I stay high so I don't get low
You know this flows from out the ghetto
Scrape up the knees, scrape the elbows
Before I breeze I make the girl know
Scrape up the knees, scrape the elbows
Before I breeze I make the girl know

Girl is skinny now and shaking her breasts
Don't be a loudmouth make your bread
Diamonds is a girl's best friend
Diamonds is forever-yes/no
Here in the bed we have
Don't be screwing a girl in the Lexus
You make room
Cash their giro
Before they try lickin' her out on the down low
She don't open- no
But a nigga tries suits
She ready forgot the kind of go for the Sambo
Reloads the ammo
One for the go
Let's laugh as they at you
She's her mother's daughter
Ready to slaughter any punk
Who puts his hands in her garter
A weed see?
She deadly and she do anything for me
Niggas better cash their jarole
Before they try chatting to the girl I know
She called, you know the flow
When she used her hand
To rub it down low for your dough
She ain't a 'ho
She's scandalous
Messed up all and your in an ambulance
She's her mother's daughter
Ready to slaughter any punk
Who puts his hands in her garter
A weed see?
She deadly and she do anything for me

*** Thanx to the great Elliot & Andy for this one ***

Daydreaming

(Massive Attack)

Shara Nelson
I quietly observe standing in my space
Daydreaming
I quietly observe standing in my space
Daydreaming

3D
Way that we say 'em in style that we write 'em in
Massive attack we keep it strong just like a vitamin
Going for the positive wiping out the negative songs
'Cause brother it's relative
The pass is picking up all the lyrics on the dance floor
That raise your spirit level 'cause it demands for

Tricky
Attitude is cool degrees below zero
Up against the wall behaving like De Niro
Tricky's performing taking his phono
Making a stand with a tan touch it like cocoa
Smooth to keep you moving at the back now
Free is the needle it's moving through the track now

3D
Dance to the drummer's beats we need new sticks
Bounce around the vibes like acoustics
No drugs or pharmaceuticals for the body ain't suitable
Stick with liquid me and trick we've drop
A paper which you use my tongue to lick with

Tricky
Trouble and strife ain't no sunshine in my life
Wiseguys get protection when they carry a knife
They shouldn't have been born they're making me yawn
But I just take it easy it's a sunday morn'

3D
So you come on light my fire and
Together we'll grow forever watch my eight kay rig go

Daddy G
Because my eight kay rig goes boom boom
My eight kay rig goes boom

3D
Yeah rhymin' the jam and uh we got the stamina
In case you never know us if we don't give a damn and uh
And it's hard to handle keep your distance
Resist and the posse gets the pleasure of this dance
The cool breeze that you welcome in the heat
You don't see it but you feel it when it's blowing on the street

Tricky
If i was a rich man

Daddy G
Da da da da

Tricky
I quietly observe standing in my space
It's the devious days they call the rat race
It's a concrete jungle, evil in the town
Weebles, wobble, occasional squabble
But what happen when the bomb drops
Down

3D

Don't make sound
'Cause the dancefloor's a desert
And the dancers are parched
Do a rain dance and your brain's still marsh
My heavy my brother get lighter than helium
Float above the world to break the tedium
Living in my headphones sony's what I say to 'em
The surreal boom of the budokan stadium

Shara Nelson
Well i'm floating on air when i'm daydreaming
I quietly observe standing in my space

Tricky
Well i'm tricky kid don't deal with sadness
Can't be with the one i love i love the one that i miss
I'm very down to earth but brain sits on top floor
Don't need another lover just need, i'm insecure

3D
The weather is a-changin' the storms be shakin
The love that you take is equal to the love you're makin
Here comes the sun little darlin here comes the sun
It's alright

Tricky
Yes tricky kid I check my situation
Maggie this Maggie that Maggie means inflation
Hip-hop you don't stop cause i'm not sloppy
I like the beat so we need another copy

3D
We're natives of the massive territory and we're proud
Get peaceful in the dance, adapt the glory and the crowd
The problem ain't a different kind of skin tricks
I love my neighbor I don't wait for the olympics
See you go hooligan you're trying to play the fool again

Tricky
Caught you in the lost and found

3D

When your posse weren't around

Tricky
No crowd

3D

So you're going for you tool again

Shara Nelson

Daydreaming

( Presents Grassroots EP & Tricky Kid EP )

Tricky and Laveda Davis:

So what you gonna do?
It's me that's haunting you
It's me you'll have to face
On judgment day
Are you gonna give release
I'll never let you rest in peace
Lookin forward to the end
It's better we die friends
Have to cleanse my soul
Straight away your god
I can't wait until you die
I can't wait to meet you there
Organize the pain
Come ride on as the train
Organize the colors
The sweetest,there's the others
On judgment day
Can't wait to meet you there
You lie and so do I
You lie and so do I
On judgment day

So what you gonna do?
It's me that's haunting you
It's me you'll have to face
On judgment day
Are you gonna give release
I'll never let you rest in peace
Lookin' forward to the end
It's better we die friends
Have to cleanse my soul
Straight away your god
I can't wait until you die
I can't wait to meet you there
Organize the hate
Let's ride on as the train
Organize the colors
The sweetest,there's the others
Judgment day, this judgment day
You lie and so do I
You lie and so do I

Devotion

I know what you see X5
Wanted with me
Suffocate me with a notion
Deserve me with devotion
Wanted with me X2
Why are we not talkin'
Why are we not speakin'
No words can describe
Inside, inside, I know what we need
I wish life was as simple as 1-2-3, as you and me
So long since I surrender
So long you I remember
It's your turn to fight the things they say
Even though we stay underneath different roofs
Today today today
I know what you see
Wanted with me
Strangle me with the notion
Twisted in my devotion
Wanted with me X2
(While your sleeping bag)??
Bare-faced like a bear
No words can describe
So why, so why, why does it feel
I wish life was as simple as 1-2-3, as you and me
So long since I surrender
So long you I remember
It's your turn to fight the things they say
Even though we stay underneath different roofs
Wanted with me X2
Suffocate me with emotion
Deserve me with devotion
Wanted with me X2
Why are we not talkin'
Why are we not speakin'
So long since I surrencer
So long you I remember
It's your turn to fight the things they say
Even though we stay underneath different roofs
Are there no words to describe
Inside, inside, I know...
Wanted with me
Why won't you listen to me
Suffocate me with emotion
Deserve me with devotion
So long since I surrender
So long you I remember
It's your turn to fight the things they say
Even though we stay underneath different roofs
So long since I...
So long...
I can't find the words

Do you love me now

(The Breeders Cover / Live 2013)

If I saw you now
Could I look in your eyes

Do you think of me
Like I dream of you

Do you wish you were here
Like I wish I was with you

You've loved me before
Do you love me now

Does love ever end
When two hearts have torn away
Or does it go on
And beat strong anyway
You've loved me before
Do you love me now

Come back to me right now
C'mon c'mon come back to me right now
C'mon c'mon come back to me right now
C'mon c'mon come on

You've loved me before
Do you love me now

You've loved me before
Do you love me now

Don't wait on me

[ Live at two Shows: Toronto 1/16/97 and Hollywood 1/25/97, vocals by martina ]
[ Stuff surrounded by *words* only at Toronto Show / Stuff surrounded by #words# only at H'wood show / Stuff not surrounded at both ]


She's a circle til i stop it
Earth is home until i (rock it/rocket)
You're still a mannequin
Are you a man again
Don't wait on me
I'll tell you when
#I'll tell you when#

#I fell to Earth you see I can#
repeat verse

*I fall to Earth you see how we can*
*repeat verse*
*Don't wait on me, I'll tell you when*

3D
Sitting in my day care, the art is decopainted
Blessed by the drink
Upon the corner's where we've seen it
Chased by the plane it
Haunted by the medium
Too high to flow toward to break the tedium
Glow from my tv set was blue like neon
Activated the remote I put the BBC on
I've seen this city somewhere
I'm looking out for no-one
Pallor in my eye it get blue like neon

Tricky
Hell is round the corner where i shelter
Isms and schisms we're living on a skelter
If you believe i'll deceive then common sense says shall you receive
Let me take you down the corridors of my life
And when you walk, do you walk to your preference
No need to answer till i take further evidence
I seem to need a reference to get residence
A reference to your preference to say i'm a good neighbour
I trudge so judge me for my labour
I walk in a bar and immediately I sense danger
You look at me, girl, as if i was some kind of a
A total stranger


3D
Hysterical, ecstatical no matter, call me stags(?)
Hard to get a drink or a girl to relax
Upon phono, no go zone i go through
Aching awaits just to relocate you
Kill us with your fist
Now baby mix it with me
You see me function better when i get approximately
High by my technical flyby
I function better with the sun in my eyes
So goodbye

Tricky
Take a second of me you beckon i'll be
And when you're sad i'll mourn
And when you tear i'm torn
Take a second of me
Take a second of me
I stand firm for our soil
I lick a rock off foil
So reduce me, seduce me
Dress me up in Stüssy.
Show me and i'll stick em
Will you be my victim
Take a second of me

3D
Mad over you, mad over me, an analogy
Baby tagging up up all of my stationary
Sitting in my daycare, media dego painted
Colliding with the jam
Until the drink got dated
Window indigo when they go boom
I run inside my room
No sense you can trust me
Climb on my sofa
Roll in a daydream
Spliff make daddy go sleep-a-trip dream

*** Thanx a lot to Winjer who updated this one ***

Five man army

(Massive Attack)

Daddy G
Trendy wendys you know what i mean
Hangin' around with girl who's rolling up her jeans
She watches her street cred 'cause she's no dummy
Saw rockin the microphone and now she's calling me a honey
Says I know what I want don't move with thugs
We're house parties hip hop and smoking drugs
And whoever's been the boss she's down with 'em
She's always on time 'cause the girl got rhythm
To avoid all complications i'll give some information
About a certain location under Paddington Station
'Cause when I host my show-a I avoid the girl called lola
Who's more pu-pu-public than the drink they call it coca cola
I'm just practice posing face is shaded in black
Is dominating as my color the massive attack
Right now i hit it kick it flow smooth hit middle wicket

Tricky
I take a small step now it's a giant stride
People say I'm loud why should I hide
Only had a small taste so what a waste
I quietly observe though it's not my space
Bottom end's heavy you know we're never even
People call me Tricky for particular reason
I've got you see and I've got to let you know
See we're rockin' in your area rock beneath your balcony
My baby just cares for me well that's funny
Her touch tickles especially on my tummy

Daddy G
Now who's got the microphone

Tricky
Now who's honey

Daddy G
A turbo turbo and chant with a charge
Addy, Daddy G wild bunch crew at large
Don't call me an officer just call me a sarge
Mashing up the country planning also abroad
Plan to go to America when I get a visa card

Tricky
But gettin' a visa card nowadays isn't hard

Daddy G
So keep your ears glued listen to every chord
Tokyo city's one place that we toured
Four technic plus two mixer board
Sharper than a Wilkinson razor sword

3D
When I was a child I played subbuteo on
My table then I graduate to studio one
'Cos D's my nom de plume you know but 3's my pseudonym
And around my neck you know I wear the sony budokan
Indigo blues you got me in my own shoes
The people dancing in the shape for what they make
They can't lose
Yes waxing lyrical but this time it's not satirical
It's kinda spherical so jam me in a ???
This is the miracle of the dubplate dub selection

Daddy G
So whether you're black white or half-caste in your complection

3D
Yes pull out your phono plug and tuck you in your phony
It's started by marconi resumed by sony
A summary by wireless history and only
The massive attack ??? explosione

Horace Andy
Get away with you gangsters
We don't want it
Get away with you gangsters
We don't like it
Eternal love eternal love
Money money money
Root of all evil
Money money money
Root of all evil

Reached for my jammy like a troop's supposed to do
Never let a sucker get too close to you

Never let a sucker get too close to you

And then I woke up an' shit

Ghetto Youth (Nite klub version)

When I am drunk
Or want just to have sex
I drop complex
And flex 'pon them next
Drunkenstein
Drunken swine
Buzz Buzz me baby,
How 'bout some love maybe?

When I leave the club,
I am drunken swine
I think about you
The rest of the time
Drunkenstein, drunken swine
Drunkenstein, drunken swine

Night Club
What are we doing here?
Night Club
What are we doing here?
We are all sluts
And the beer tastes like piss
Pass around
The Syphilis (sp?)
And Uhm, Buzz Buzz me baby,
How 'bout some love maybe?
Buzz Buzz me baby,
How 'bout some love maybe?

(repeat with variations)

Ghetto Youth (Something about you version)

(Live at Shepherd's Bush, 4/16/97, Vocals by Martina)

Moment I saw you, I knew
Knew there was something about you
Should've seen the warnings
We were very ?young?
Didn't know anything about you
About men and women
A little more now, nothing to talk about
We were very young
Something about you
I knew, I think I knew I would love you
Without trying to,
You wrote your story in a different light
It was exciting, I really felt alive then
We were very young
Thought my heart would break
48 hours without you
And I could never doubt you
At first you never gave me reason
I didn't know, how could I know?
How would I know?
The pain you had inside you
And nothing I'd do
Would ever be enough to hide you
No regrets, no way
Had to be a ?nineteen? always remembering
How we made each other sick
We made each other sick
Something about you
Told your story in a different light
Something about you
We were very young


*** Thanx a lot to Adam Roesch ***

( Presents Grassroots EP )

Tricky :
Here we go again so tricky going flow again
Those chicken cluckers is fakin' pumpin' others
Others breed to sons and deform carnage
Disorder and you know we be bionic,
Skeezers make me paranoid smokin' hydroponic,
Shutting down one half of my brain, paralyzes one side of my body,
Now in need of a walk-in chain of McDonald's,
For those chicken cluckers whose fakin' pumpin' others,
Here we go again you know we know the flow again
Here we go again you know we know the flow again
Here we go again you know we know the flow again

Roberto Malary Jr. :
It's the one-two-three on your mark get set go
I'm gonna show you how to flow 
So take notes from a pro
Original is what best describes me i'm rough like
Football or hockey so don't try to stop me
'Cause when i'm on the roll i'm rollin' up with the crew
Rollin' up, filling blunts and gettin' drunk off the brews,
Showin' mad skills like the Shaolin temple, 
Not Kung-Fu but kickin' styles from my mental,
My brain is overflowin' with words and phrases,
And titles and concepts on how to catch wreck, ha! 
I take my rhymes and my beats,make sure they fit perfect,
Like a glove so it can sound lovely but ah yeah I gotcha open, 
I know I gotcha open like the weed that your smokin'
Once you start chokin'-you're provokin',
Me to blow your rhymes out the frame so when a sucka's walkin' funny, ha!, 
You know that i'm to blame because a slap is whatcha get,
I suppose more than a broken nose you catch about five toes.

Tricky :
Here we go again so tricky going flow again
Those chicken cluckers is fakin' pumpin' others
Mothers breed to sons and deform carnage
Disorder and you know we be bionic,
Skeezers make me paranoid smokin' hydroponic,
Shutting down one half of my brain, paralyzes one side of my body,
Now in need of a walk-in chain of McDonald's,
For those chicken cluckers whose fakin' pumpin' others,
Here we go again you know we know the flow again
Here we go again you know we know the flow again
Here we go again you know we know the flow again

Had you in me

( With Neneh Cherry )

Note: it begins with Tricky speaking in the background to someone in the studio.
( I shoulda been a women. i don'
t understand why I'm a man )

Tricky & Neneh Cherry :
Had you in me, had you in me
Had you in me, had you in me
In me, in me

Sick of what I feel, sick of being real
Better stay clear or I might hijack a plane
I'm getting sick of what I feel, sick of being real
You better stay clear ‘cause I'm about to blow the fuck up

Neneh Cherry :
Soap on my body's gonna make me clean
Giving birth makes me scream
See my light (life?) pass before me as i drown in the shadow under my
Bubble bath
A forced laugh a forged autograph
First my body
Now my corpse
I exercise daily...love my sports
I need when I conceive
I sow seed, I can see no remorse

Tricky & Neneh Cherry : X2

I had you in me
Had you in me
You in me
In me
Me
Sick of what i feel
Sick of being real
Better stay clear or I might hijack a plane
I'm getting sick of what I feel
Sick of being real
You better stay clear ‘cause I'm about to blow the fuck up

Tricky :
I'm liquid

Neneh Cherry :
Serving speed, self deceit,
I teased you now you're tame,
Put treacle on your tummy to keep you sticky when i steal,
I take from you I hate for you
You fools who feel free (?)
You look like a little somebody looking for something

Tricky :
And I'm still myself (to fade)

Crazy. these kids are crazy.
You think you're in heaven --

d pearson/g isabell :

Yo i'm dreamin'
Bitches be screamin' for my semen
Like hard on my 125 [?]
A mouth for luxuries, chickens can cluck to these
Better yet, we'd have to [?] these
Rhyme styles that i rock all night
Devote for the [?] turn barry white, my insight
Is far beyond the rhyme [?]
Soon to go [?]
I glide, hillfiguze homicide
Like europe i leave mc's drivin on the right side
The ripper, no one's hipper
Honey getter
Quick to put a [?] straight in yo shitter
Rhyme bitter, like styled strife
Layin' min [?] buffs in back with wesley snipes
A buuncha kleptomaniacs
Fingers that sticky?
You ask what happen?
Hillfiguzes got tricky.

Tricky / drunkenstien :

Kids are crazy, they're crazy
You think you're in heaven but...

d pearson / g isabell :

Lyrical meditaion
Styles be bangin' like masturbation
So open yo ear to the ejaculation
Time flies and crime gods be makin moves
Leders of the underworld be baggin' 2s
So fools lose
Why the l.a. [?] crews
Poppin' [?]
Frontal ease w/ the honeys
Countin' moneys,
A hillfiguze reppin' in his 20s
The black [?] we pull cards on g.p.
General purpose, my surface is reality
Mob mentality is actualy the war pedigree
That sits me on the stool w/ the extra t's - please
Down on yo knees or i'll squeeze
[?]
You met defeat
The feedback is hardcore rap
Liscensed by hilfiguzes and tricky you never knew that

Tricky / Stike :

It's like, [sumner cybercafe?]
fff... It's like i'm connecting
These kids, crazy
You think you're in heaven but youre really in hell [repeat till end]

Karmacoma

(Massive Attack)

Tricky
You sure you want to be with me
I've nothing to give
Won't lie and say this lovin's best
Well leave us in emotional pace
Take a walk, taste the rest
No, take a rest

3D
I see you digging a hole in your neighborhood
You're crazy but you're lazy
I need to live and I need to
Your troubles must be seen to see through
Money like it's paper with faces i remember
I drink on a daily basis
Though it subtle cools my temper
It never cools my temper

Tricky
Walking through the suburbs though not exactly lovers
You're a couple, 'specially when your body's doubled
Duplicate, then you wait for the next kuwait

Tricky & 3D
Karmacoma, jamaica' aroma (x4)

3D
You sure you want to be with me i've nothing to give
Take a walk take a rest taste the rest
Take a walk take a rest taste the rest
Take a walk take a rest a taste of rest

Tricky
Don't want to be on top of your list
Monopoly and properly kissed
We overcome in sixty seconds
With the strength we have to together
But for now, emotional ties they stay severed
When there's trust there'll be treats
And when we funk we'll hear beats


Tricky & 3D
Karmacoma, jamaica' aroma (x4)

3D
Deflowering my baby, aiyee my baby me
I must be crazy, see i'm swazy
Digging a hole in your neighborhood
You're crazy but you're lazy, must be lazy

Tricky

Don't wanna on top of your list
Monopoly and properly kissed

3D

Deflowering my baby, aiyee my baby me
My baby
Deflowering my baby, aiyee my baby me
I must be crazy, you must be lazy

Kickin'

( Whale )

Drummer : One, two, three, four

Tricky and Cia Berg :

I wanna give birth to your baby, baby
Scream all night long
Exercise our breathing so they hear it in Vietcong
Untangle my umbilical
There's no need to be political
Let's not get too serious
Just try to stay predictable
Cos I....

All :

I can't help that I think you're really kickin'
I can't help that I think you're really kickin'
I can't help that I think you're really kickin'
I can't help..
I think you're really...
I think you're really...
Kickin'

Tricky and Cia Berg :

I met you on a Tuesday
Or maybe was it Wednesday
You befriended me, defended me
Shortly after you offended me
I asked you "What's your name?"
I looked at you the same
If there a possibility
That you could take on my fertility

All :

I can't help that I think you're really kickin'
I can't help that I think you're really kickin'
I can't help that I think you're really kickin'
I can't help..
I think you're really...
I think you're really...
Kickin'

Tricky :

Can't you feel that my climax isn't topical
My physical biological isn't logical
It's astronomical

All : I can't help that I think you're really kickin'

Live W/Yo self

( Presents Grassroots EP )

Stephanie Cooke:
You go live with yourself
I'll go live with myself
And it is me who has to live
With my self

Do you get an erection
When you look at your own reflection?
Try to analyze what you don't understand
I play the devil and I play Christ
Cross dress and run with the rest
To the believers
They have no belief
They have no belief
I am the king's mighty
Oh, oh yeah, oh yeah

God forgive me,
God defend me yeah,
But instead of this oh,
He just bends me.

On the rhythm with your mind
My mind is out of shape and my body's out of style
Throw me in the Nile
Like the kid in "Microphone"
Youknow, the one who can't leave his style alone

You go live with yourself
I'll go live with myself
But it is me who has to live
With myself.

You go live with yourself
I'll go live with myself
But it is me who has to live
With myself.

*** Thanx a lot to Elliot who corrected some mistakes on this one ***

Now i'm the livin' prostitute

NK : I don't wanna die

Tricky :

Good salute to vamps
For me one two one one one one
Keep keep you head up
We're freaky and we're fed up
Pretending you're a wierd one
What is hot? what is not?
Under god's sun
You can do the press up
And you can put your chest up
I prefer to travel
If i leave wit' you
They'll drag me through the gravel
It's to the sleigh
Look you're it...
Jello then (??)
Everybody's mad
Everybody to the lunacy
It's too easy to find
Drugs in my community
One for the money
Two now i'm the...
Now i'm the livin' prostitute
Three for forgettin' how i feel
Four now i'm no longer real
We'll leave the suckers and the vamps
Come join my moody buddist camp
And if you think i'm the fake up
Well wait around until i take off
Take off my makeup
My makeup
It's the moody buddist camp
It's the moody broody
It's the moody broody buddist camp
Keep keep your head up

NK :
Look what i can do
Look what i can do
Look what i can do
Look what i can do
Feed me through the ring
Feed me through the ring
Look what i can do
I feel the spirit in me now
Ain't nobody gonna split us apart
One day is come
Feed me through the ring
Look what we've become
What have we became?
Feed me through the ring
Look what I can do X3

My Head

( Blowback Bonus Disc )

Floating around with my head in my head
Looking around if there's way to escape
But I really don't care if this room is too dark
Cause my fantasy's big
I can see all the stars.

*** Thanx a lot to Losthopeful for this one ***

Nothing's Clear

 
( The hard sell / Charity LP - All vocals by tricky, words in parentheses are unclear)

How things are
Together we'll destroy
Then we can destroy what we are
Then we'll build what we are
When we dream the spirit free
We don't give praise we take praise
And why are we

How things are
Together we'll destroy
Then we can destroy what we are
Then we'll build what we are
When we dream the spirit free
We don't give praise we take praise
And why are we

This isn't crystal though nothing is clear
I despise you
I damn you
Dream you
I love you

But still nothing's clear
I think of when i found you
(Deep deep) in salt water
Drag you down into life
See(m) some vision
Raised in this place
Concrete is my religion

The place where the sun's makes mostly sense
See how it ends

You feed me when I'm hungry
Drink me 'til I'm dry
You dream then and now
Isn't nothing but a lie
Human lies
Distortion
The English disaster
Though we're free
Black or White
One law for one master

I found a new place to live
We're taught to grow strong
Strongly sensitive
And life sets the scenery
Colors leave only beauty
Words and wine amongst the greenery
The only lessons the teach from the marigin
The ask my origin
Tomorrow's sin

But now you're being (choosajooed) to color
Ask
Where i'm from
Me? I'm from my mother

[scratched sample]
I take small step

[grumbled]
(Which relates)

The place where the sun's makes mostly sense
See how it ends...

Piece Of Me

(Britney Spears cover / Murder Of Weapon EP)

Franky Riley:

I'm Miss American Dream since I was 17
Don't matter if I step on the scene
Or sneak away to the Philippines
They're still gonna put pictures of
My derriere in the magazine
You want a piece of me

I'm Miss Bad Media Karma
Another day another drama
Guess I can't see the harm
In working and being a mama
And with a kid on my arm
I'm still an exceptional earner
Are you sure you want a piece of me

I'm Mrs. Lifestyles of the rich and famous
I'm Mrs. Oh my God that Britney's shameless
I'm Mrs. Extra! Extra! this just in
I'm Mrs. She's too big now she's too thin

I'm Mrs. You want a piece of me
Trying and pissing me off
Well get in line with the paparazzi
Who's flipping me off
Hoping I'll resort to some havoc
And end up settling in court
Now are you sure you want a piece of me

I'm Mrs. Most likely to get on the TV
For stripping on the streets
When getting the groceries
Not for real, are you kidding me
No wonder there's panic in this industry
I mean please
You want a piece of me

I'm Mrs. Lifestyles of the rich and famous
I'm Mrs. Oh my God that Britney's shameless
I'm Mrs. Extra! Extra! this just in
I'm Mrs. She's too big now she's too thin

Provoked

For all those who wanna analyze me
For all those who wanna analyze me
It starts off in the hips
Move to the lips
For all those who wanna analyze me
My mother committed suicide when I was four or five
I love Mike-O was killed by a psycho
But I'm not sad or sorry
'Cause we be tomorrow
'Cause we be tomorrow
For all those who wanna analyze me
For all those who wanna analyze me
My mother committed suicide when I was four or five
I love Mike-O was killed by a psycho
But I'm not sad or sorry
'cause we be tomorrow
Next month, next week
I guess I'm weak
I guess I'm weak
But I'm not sad or sorry
'Cause we be tomorrow
Suicide when I was four or five
Mike-O killed by a psycho
Sad or sorry
I be tomorrow
For all those who wanna analyze me
Starts off in the hips
Move to my lips
Starts off in the hips
Move to my lips

Train passes where they prosecute
So be careful where you tread
It's a land mine baby
Don't go losing your head
Just remember our love
so you won't give up
If you remember our love
So you won't give up

Long gone are the proper sleeves
to walk by our side
Long killed are the visionary souls
Now we're walking blind
The lies are meant to hypnotyze
and put you in a spell
Wake up you sleepy heads
Release yourselves from hell
You won't give up
You can't give up

They made us drink salt water
Then sell us liberty
Tell me how can you sell somebody
what's supposed to be free
You know the non-contender for the derelict mind
You starved us baby
and you're gonna shine
You starved us baby
and you're gonna shine
You starved us baby

Fuck creation
Fuck creation
Fuck creation
There is no relevance with my life
All I mean
is how to fight
Producing the goods
I'm fit to make sense
Built with more right
Especially a thing
Self-defense
A wasted office in my mind
All the time I've been blind
Race- an objective
Difficult at times
Don't know what to do
Name your baby Namboo
Mine's far and away
The rest is up to you

Politicians are destroying
the dreams of the many
One can inform our country
So they don't spend a penny
Less than our future
On some posh adventure
Driving along Concord Lane
they're looking for adventure
Pick out the homes and count the best bids
Pick out the homes and count the best bids
There's only so much to go around
and they took the life
It's not what you're savin'
It's how much you got
Pick out the homes and count the best bids
Hunt the homes and pick out the best bids

You're on his high and you won't give up
Your tongue is torn and you won't give up
Your back is broke and you won't give up
You're all alone but you're so tough
You won't give up
You won't give up
You starved us baby
and you cannot shine
You starved us baby

*** Thanx a lot to Elliot for this one ***

Psychosis

( The Hell EP )

(Repeated throughout: He's falling, slowly falling, Jesus Christ)

Tricky :
When will it ever end?
See it in the face again
Space trace the alien
And he shall be called Adrian
So it seems I'm the devil's son
Outta breath and on the run
Jesus christ don't wanna be me
First you burn then try to see me
When will it ever end?
See it in the face again
Space space trace the alien
Space trace the alien X2
And he shall be called Adrian
So it seems I'm the devil's son
Outta breath and on the run
Jesus christ don't wanna be me
First you burn then try to see me
First you burn X2
You need to breath and there's a sequal
When I rock there is no equal
And you need to breath and there's a sequal
When I rock there is no equal
When I slide divided it becomes

(Repeated throughout : He's falling, slowly falling, Jesus Christ )

Grim Reaper :
Yes, could this be? another episode from the terror trilogy
The world economy
He's falling, slowly falling
When those streets are paved with gold and silver,
Ahahaha, when will this mad-ness ever end ?
He's falling, slowly falling, Jesus Christ X2
There is no more rain left in the forest,
Everything is petrified, terrified, horrified..
You've been denied!
The right to your third eye. now it's shut-t-t-t-t
No more to be opened, ahahaha
What's going on
Sometimes the Rhyme has no meaning: unless you give it meaning
He's falling, slowly falling, Jesus Christ
( Tricky : I can't .... no meaning, I see the ... Yeah )
Yeah the feeling, It's appealing but it's real it's real is it real?
Or is it Memorex?
Jesus Christ
Yeah
No
He's falling, slowly falling, Jesus Christ X2

Tricky:
We're in the devils company X5
Oh Yeah
When will it ever end?
See it in the face again
Space trace the alien
And he shall be called Adrian
So it seems I'm the devil's son
Outta breath and on the run

He's falling, slowly falling, Jesus Christ X2

Question

  (Unreleased / Feat. Alanis Morissette )

Alanis Morissette:

I must be two lips
I must be your sleep
I must be blinded
Keep it a question
Keep it a question
Keep it a question

I must be spoiled
I must be behind
I must be asleep
I must be fearful
Keep it a question
Love ain't a secret
Keep it a question
Keep it a question

I must be two lips
I must be your sleep
I must plan to forget
I must be suffering
Keep it a question
Letting nothing on
Let's keep it a question

Keep it a question
Love ain't a secret
Keep it a question
Let it stop within
Keep it a question

Simple Creed

( With Live on the album V )

Ed Kowalczyk :
Born with your back to the god that
Spit you out on the riverbed
Angry at who? me?
You better back up fool
I bet you took a gun to school too
But now nobody's takin' no candy
You just keep on living this tragedy
To each his own, but

I wait for you to take my hand
'Cause we need each other
We gotta love each other

Yeah
Born with your back to the god that
Picked you up by your puppy scruff
Angry at who? me?
You better back up fool
And be grateful that the real me's always hidin' from you

Now nobody's takin' your bicycle
Maybe somebody should take your microphone
To each his own, but

I wait for you to understand
That we need each other
We gotta live each other
(I wait for you to understand)
That we need each other
(I wait for you to take my hand)

Tricky :
Someone should take your microphone
Someone should leave their life on
Someone will take your bubble gum
Someone will take your life away
Always wasn't hole-ways, you always walking hole-ways
Try again, lie again
I don't make love, i only love
That only love that don't show love
I don't know love i want nobody

Ed Kowalczyk :
I wait for you to take my
I wait for you to take my hand
Yeah 'cause we need each other
You know, we gotta love each other
'Cause we need each other yeah

Slick 66

( Pumpkin EP & 12" / Slick Rick Cover )

Once upon a time not long ago
When people wore pajamas and lived life slow
Lived a little boy he was misled
By another little boy and this is what he said:
"Me and you tonight are gonna make some cash
Robbin' old folks and makin' the dash."
They did the job, money came with ease
But one couldn't stop, it's like he had a disease
He robbed another and another a sister and a brother
Tried to rob a man who was a duty undercover
The cop grabbed his arm, he started acting erratic
He said "Look kid, no need for static"
Punched him in his belly and he gave him a slap
But little did he know the little boy was strapped
The kid pulled out the gun, he said "Why'd ya hit me?"
The gun was hang right for the cop's kidney
The cop got scared, the kid, he starts to figure
"I'll do years if I pull this trigger"
So he cold dashed and ran around the block
Radios it to another lady cop
He ran by a tree, there he saw the sister
A shot for the head, he shot back but he missed her
And due to expectations
He decided he'd head for the roadway stations
She was coming and he made a left
He was runnin' top speed till he was out of breath
He knocked an old man down and swore he killed him
Then he made his move to an abandoned building
He ran up the stairs up to the top floor
And guess who he saw?
Dave the dope fiend shootin' dope
Who don't know the meaning of water nor soap
He said "Hurry, hurry up and run!"
The dope fiend brought back a spanking shotgun
He went outside but there was cops all over
He dipped into a car, a stolen Nova
He raced up the block doing 83
Crashed into a tree near a university
Escaped alive though the car was battered
Rat-a-tat-tatted and all the cops scattered
Ran out of bullets but still he had static
Grabbed a pregnant lady, got out the automatic
Pointed at her head and he said 
"Cops back off or the honey here's dead"
Deep in his heart he knew he was wrong
He let the lady go and he starts to run on
Sirens sounded, he seemed astounded
Before long the little boy was surrounded
He dropped the gun, so went the glory
And this is the way I have to end my story
He was only seventeen, in a madman's dream
The cops shot the kid, I still hear him scream
This ain't funny so don't ya dare laugh
Just another storye 'bout the wrong path
Straight and narrow while your soul gets cash
Goodnight

Slowly

 ( Forces of nature Soundtrack )

I fly away
I fly away
I'm up high
I fly away
I fly away

Some people act funny
When they talk to me
It makes me feel uncomfortable
I'm in trouble
I fly away
I fly away
I'm up high
I'm flyin'
I'm dyin'
Can't you see you're killin' me
Ability
I'll show you all that sex is
It's not in your Lexus
And when your restless
Can I be on your next list
Wait awhile
Make her smile
Make her smile
Crash her guest list
Thrown to my knees
Once she receives
With you I put a dress on
I dress and impress on
I taste like licorice
Scream if you're ticklish

Slowly,slowly,slowly
Act like you know me
Slowly
Act like you know me
Slowly,slowly,slowly
Act like you know me

So if he would put a dress on
Unless you put the stress on
Tuck your hair behind your ears
Your tears, your silly fears
I'd be your Teddy bear
I'd choose the clothes I wear
With you I had so much pain
Shot glass migraine
For you I'd lose my focus
Swim in a swarm of locusts
For you I'd swim with ease
Save the planet-leave the trees
Hold me,hold me,hold me
Forget what you told me
For you I'd swim with ease
Save the planet-leave the trees

Slowly,slowly,slowly
Act like you know me
Slowly
Act like you know me
Slowly, slowly, slowly
And act like you know me

For you I'd swim with ease
Save the planet-leave the trees
Slowly, slowly, slowly
And act like you know me
Slowly
And act like you know me
Slowly
And act like you know me
Slowly,slowly
Act like you know me

Smoking beagles

( Tricky Kid EP )

Roaming bastards
Forever half-wits
Carrying equation
It's like I'm asian
You heard fantastic
We cross atlantic
We found the name-ula
I'm the kid with the formula
Watching me do
It's even voodoo
I'll make your back break
And your knees bend
Sucking me frantic
Sucking me frantic
Well I'm like a smoking beagle
Got a rhyme
Do the time
Which isn't legal
I'm the aliens X3
Carrying equation
It's like I'm asian
I'm fucking Ronald Reagan
It's cause I'm paid-en
You heard fantastic
We cross Atlantic
We found the name-ula
I'm the kid with the formula
I'm the aliens
'Cos I'm bigger than you X2
Call me like King Kong
I'm the aliens

Suffocating (demo)

( Blowback Bonus Disc )

Suffocating.
You can hear it when I breathe.
I need saving.
I wear it on my sleeve.
Here in my world.
I see what I want, I be what I want
I guess I'm needing.
I guess there's no trust, I bust when you're leaving
Call when you're bleeding.
I am receiving, I know what you're needing
I am puppet.
I know what you want, And I know that you love it
I am greedy.
I squeeze and I squeeze and I squeeze till you feed me
I am warning.
When the storm comes, it comes without warning
You fascinate me.
Now that I told you, now do you hate me?
Here in my world.
I say what I want, I do what I want

Come on and help me now
What you waiting for?
There must be more than this
I watch the open door

Come on and help me now
What're you waiting for
There must be more than this
So what you waiting for?

Come on and help me now
Here in my world.

I guess I'm needing.
I guess there's no trust, I bust when you're leaving
Call when you're bleeding.
I am receiving, I know what you're needing
I am puppet.
I know what you want, And I know that you love it
I am greedy.
I squeeze and I squeeze and I squeeze till you feed me

What you waiting for?
There must be more than this
I watch the open door

Come on and help me now
What're you waiting for
There must be more than this
There must be more than this

Tricky:
The harder they come

Maybe you were just a little boy
After gave you the pride and joy
Maybe i should set you free

The moment I feared ( For you Version )

(Live at Later W/Jools 97)

For you I put a dress on
I don't dress and impress-on
My lips they taste like licorice
Scream if you're ticklish
Slowly slowly slowly I like you lowly
Slowly slowly slowly I like you lowly
You want me dress on
Try to impress-on
It seems like the boys are pretty
It's a city committee
I can't foresee
Still like i'm waiting
The original original
Just don't take my physical
Original original
Just don't take my physical
For you I put a dress on
I try to impress-on
For you I put a dress on
Dressing in impress-on
Seems like them boys are pretty
It's a city commitee
I can't foresee
Still like I'm waiting
The original original
Still ain't get my physical
Original original
Still ain't get my physical
No wait no long
Just another bristol's bombed
I live in a womb
I'm stuck in a womb
With a quick squeeze, I hit the room
I get room, I do the smack
Take it too much
With me to scare about that next
For you put a dress on
I don't dress and impress-on
For you x5
For you i put a dress on
I don't dress and impress-on
My lips taste like licorice
Scream if you're ticklish
Slowly slowly slowly I like you lowly
Slowly slowly slowly I like you lowly
For you x5~6
For you I put a dress on
For you I put a dress on
Dress on

Who's dwon with you now
Don't accept my physical
For you x3

A dress and impress-on

For you I put a dress on

The Only Way

Every time you go away
I feel the pain
I feel the sin
It's like a rain

When I hear your name
I fall apart
Is this the end
Why do we stop
Is this the only way
You go away
Be my friend
Come back again
Come back again

Every time she goes away
I feel the pain
I feel the sin
It's like a rain
Every time I hear her name
I fall apart
Is this the end
Why do we stop
Is this the only way
You go away
Be my friend
Come back again

The only way
Is this the only way
The only way
The only way

Every time I make you cry
It's like I die
Got (???) fucked here
I'm seeing red
I can't feel
It's like I'm dead
I'm an alien
Not from this earth
Alien
Not from this earth
You know the feel
You know my birth

The only way
The only way
Is this the only way

Is this the only way
The only way
The only way

Every time she goes away
I feel the pain
I feel the sin
It's like a rain
Every time I hear her name
I fall apart
Is this the end
Why do we stop
Is this the only way
Be my friend
Come back again
Be my friend
Be my friend
Come back again

Every time she goes away
I feel the pain
I feel the sin
It's like a rain
Every time I hear her name
I fall apart
Is this the end
Why do we stop
Is this the only way
Be my friend
Come back again

Come back again
The only way
The only way
The only way

Be my friend
Be my friend
Come back again
The only way
Is this the only way

Be my friend
Be my friend
Come back again

Come back again
Come back again

Time slippin'

I'm drinkin' double
Seein' trouble
And she knows I like girls
When around the lights go
I wanna rock the mic though

Tonite is a special nite

( The Hell EP )

Tricky : ( sampled over and over : ) "Let's just record..."

RZA:
Aarrgh! Throw your hands in the Air
Tonite is a Special Nite!
Throw your hands in the Air
Tonite is a Special Nite!
Throw your hands in the Air
Tonite is a Special Nite!
Check me out

Gatekeeper

Gatekeeper :
There are reasons and fouls to fax and those who get caught in the act
Get the axe, yet, my style is known to catapult like a jet, like a F-15
Yo! my gleem is bright and hard when it strikes
Niggaz get caught in the dead of the nightmare! Ah! you're scared, duck away
Don't get too close or you might just get roast, roast! ha!
I come with the pharaoh, the sparrow, the crow
Just like an arrow to the bone, oh
I piss through your toe, your knee and your cap
Wouh! Decapitate and scatter it, Wouh! Batter it theives and villians, those who aren' t killin,
that's, there's the willing
Lord, thats the way they choose when you are bound to lose

And the girls that a been scheming: gonna get the cream and
When I say I'm coming in the house,aahhhaa I am cumming in the House

Tricky versus Lynx (live)

( Mission Accomplished EP )

Force like that fill up in your jaw like the lights
Warlords with the full force
Drugs, a bitch and then it's a war
Run for the rich and give to the poor
We're all telling kids to get the most oil
Bring the cops in the mix 
We livin' no more
Won't make your car start
A dark heart
Kill and get your ass caught
You're dead now
It's not a problem
The kids who will not steal
the drugs they don't have
Still just kill
In the ghetto this shit is unreal
Nigga's escorts freak the downhills
Shots be ringing like Chinese bells
In fly females, out flip the Catskills
Madness ain't quittin' until
Your night to see jail
And get the raw meal
Mad Dog fought infinity
Ain't trying to be no public enemy
Outlaw like my nigga Red Dog
Step up, bitch and get rough
Nigga with .44's won't lie
A .45 or higher sport nice
Cruise to try to have a kill for your eyes
Lose your life
It feels so nice
Jet for the poor lights, no dice
One thing I don't like is a low light
Trying to get me for selling Snow White
Flying taxi my girl's were so right
When to say what
You trust, you know
No bad boy cops with facts you know
Then some of them flip, they flop the show
Them punk ass bitches got to go
Murder on the mainland
Where the gang's slaying the game plan
Ain't trying to be name brand
Out to the girls and boys and
This went down like Durban Poison
Murder on the mainland
Where the gang's slaying the game plan
Ain't tryin to be name brand
Out to the girls and boys and
This went down like Durban Poison

Just like two my crew is blessed
Doing things with my niggas that I knew was right
If you decide to detest
Like you do when trying
As far as picking up your chest
That be suicide, nigga
See that trigger
All you do is hang
It's a front, take a punt
And it's smooth to guide
Curse the 'ho 'til she takes you in her arms again
Play the role if you ain't a dog
But when you kids get alot of cash off the ash
Shortin' cats in the block of flats
Cops that harrass better watch their backs
Falls well strapped and then broke them flat
Hold gas to the mattress
Drop a match
'Cause that's where your at niggas are off with that
Try and flop me and I'll flop you back
Shout out "kill" and the dogs attack
Want a mil, what's with that
We're all 'bout still and shot the crack
Love the bitches with alot of back
Plus the titties, what you got to ask?
Mad Dog straight ghetto now
Live in this slum but I'm gettin' out
My soldiers wanna knock you out
Don't fuck around just shut your mouth
Murder on the mainland
Where the gang's slaying the game plan
Ain't trying to be name brand
Out to the girls and boys and
This went down like Durban Poison
Murder on the mainland
Where the gang's slaying the game plan
Ain't tryin to be name brand
Out to the girls and boys and
This went down like Durban Poison

Trouble Again

( John Forte featuring Tricky - I, John LP - 2002)

Got your plane tickets?
I travel the world. Teach boys and school those girls
I do songs with only fam, y'all can pass referrals
The life I live in will have will have everybody with ears
Sing along to "What A Difference A Day Makes"

I, John remember Vegas putting 5 on
Down to a few noticed that my guys gone
Either locked away or boxed away
Put the past on hold long as we got today

"Took a little trip to Scandinavia"
Took a little trip to East India
Took a little trip to West Africa
Took a little trip to Jamaica

Trouble again
There was trouble again
Trouble again
There was trouble again

Most music makes me sickly, situation sticky
Call cross the water to touch my man, Tricky
Drink up! Smoke a stoag and we all link up
Heard the words in the paper, now what will they think up?
They had me locked, timing
I came home and started singing 'cause I stopped rhyming
I'm disgusted with rap!
A new album, new crew, new friends, that's that
I pass the baton, my arms reach longer than that

Took a little trip to Long Island Sound
Took a little trip to England Town
Took a little trip to the pitcher's mound
Took a little trip to Spanish Town

Trouble again
Tricky!
Who likes it chunky? Who was a little monkey?
Who sniffs coke? Who's half broke?
Who lied? Who am I?
Who wants a sinner coming 'round for dinner?
Use effects. Who used to pay for sex?
Need your bong. Who will stay calm?
Help it spill. Who'd you kill?
Who'd you kill?

Took a little trip to a ghetto land
Took a little trip to Ireland
Took a little trip to New Zealand
Took a little trip to Maryland

Trouble again
Lean on it
Lean on it
Lean on it
Lean on it
Took a little trip where me naw fit it in
So I took a little back to Brooklyn
The place on
Earth me break bread with men
Everybody dash when police come in!
Trouble again

Took a little trip to Israel
Took a little trip to Bristol
Took a little trip to Palestine
Took a little trip to Vietnam

Trouble again
Who won the chicken?
It's fucking finger lickin'?
I be the baller, wishin I was taller
Yeah, you making me regret
Yeah, you just won't
Trouble again
Took a little trip...

Tryzasnice

Fuck you in
Suck you in
Tuck you in
I enjoy myself within myself and back again
Encouraging [??]
I am she who stinks of men
Gritty teeth, fists are clutching,
breast stroke, lots of touching
There'll be big fun up at my hotel, motel
I'll fuck you in the ass
Just for a laugh
With the quick speed
I'll make your nose bleed
I ride the premenstral cycle
Forget about the michael
Here's the big blast
I like the big cash
I hits the big grass
i'll spray you straight through
I spray your trade troops
He hit me one time
He hit me two times
You hit me thrice..
Because it's Tryzasnice

We know

 ( Half Baked Soundtrack )

Tricky
We know how you do
We can see through you
We know how you do
We can see through you

DJ Milo
You can't see me
No detail
Make the whole crowd pump their fist like Bobby Seal
Captivate like I was Rap Brown on the mic
Known to stomp a fake rap clown on sight
What you like
No compromise
No stompin right through
No surprise
Cos I got seeds to feed
Man I don't need the weed
Your crew [go wanna] test me
Get it on
I combinate like [Jim Beam]
To the break of dawn
And you'll be that punk in a ditch
You can grab the mic and get rich

Tricky
You say you never heard of this
Do you [uhm] wanna swear to this?
I got a word for this
You wannabe alternative?
Don't carry no chrome even
Life alone
Creepin
Microphone

At fifteen, I started to get high though
Ooh my voice it went from high to low
Some persons hide a little
Like [Clyde] from DJ Milo
That's how it is,
I let [them dandy] handle my business
He got heaps on heaps and on heaps of integrity
And foolish suckers, they're scared of me
There's no need to be scared off
I just got a big mouth
Guess I'll get off
Get back
When you suckers are slack
You smack me, I smack you back
Smack me and I'll smack you back
Smack me and I'll smack you back

If you do not suck in high though
Ooh my voice went from high to low

DJ Milo
At fifteen, i started to get high though
My voice went from high to low
From [Brooke] I hid a little
I hung out with DJ Milo

And that's how it is

[Fifteen...high to low]
DJ Milo
[Kick that shit man]

Tricky
[Yes [????]]

[Back in business]
[[High to ho]]
[Back in business]

Smack me and We'll smack you back

Smack me and I'll smack you back
Smack me and I'll smack you back
You smack me and I'll smack you back

[That's how it is]
Say you've never heard of this
How they wanna [switch] to this
I got a word for this
You wannabe alternative
Fifteen, I sucked in [high to ho]

I get high with DJ Milo

We know how you do
We can see through you

That's how it is

We know how you do
We can see through you

[Don't wanna be alternative]
[I don't carry no chrome]
[I leave my]
[Gun at home]

[Smack me and I'll smack you back]
[That's how it is]
[We back in biz]
[We can see through you]

Etc...

*** Thanx a lot to Emerson who updated this one ***

When doves cry

Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?
Picture this ?
Can you picture this?

Dream if you will a courtyard
An ocean of violets in bloom
Animals strike curious poses
They feel the heat
Between me and you
Between me and you
Between me and you

How can you just leave me standing?
Alone in a world that's so cold?
Maybe I'm just too demanding
Maybe I'm just like my father too bold
Too bold

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
I've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase you
Don't make me
Don't make me chase you
Don't make me chase you

This is what it sounds like
This is what it sounds like
This is what it sounds like

Dig if you will the picture
Of you and I engaged in a kiss
The sweat of your body covers me
Can you my darling
Can you picture this?
Picture this ?
Can you picture this?

Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
I've got the butterflies all tied up
Don't make me chase you
Don't make me chase you
I've got the butterflies
I've got the butterflies
Don't make me chase you
Don't make me chase you
Don't make me chase you

This is what it sounds like
This is what it sounds like
This is what it sounds like

Even doves have pride
Even doves have pride
Even doves have pride

Feel how it trembles inside
Feel how it trembles inside
See how it trembles inside
 Touch if you will my stomach
Feel how it trembles inside
See how it trembles inside

This is what it sounds like

Who

 ( Juxtapose Bonus Japanese LP )

Tricky :
Who want the chicken?
It's fuckin' finger-lickin'
I'll be the baller
Wishin' I was taller
Yeah, you're makin' me look red
Yeah, you just won't let

Nearly, nearly, nearly
Nearly everyone needs something
You can't tell me nothing
Who wants December?
Gonna run forget her
Who needs effects?
Who needs to pay for sex?
When they drop the bomb
(When they)
Who will stay calm?
Blood will spill
Who would you kill?

Don't tell me nothing
Everyone wants something
Who wants to do this?
We all grow up and be this
Some may eat the people
The apple and the people
Some days, some days

Who like it chunky?
Who has a little monkey?
Who snorts coke?
Who's flat broke?
Who lie on the mic?
Who likes the place?
Who likes place on the little riddle?
Fiddles want to fiddle
and fraud and rob
Hey diddle diddle
Split it down the middle
Who's gonna last?
Who's gonna blast?
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Who's got a giggle?
Who walks with a wiggle?
Who kills people,
steals and builds a steeple?
Who's your crew?
Who the fuck you talking to?
Yeah, yeah

Who sees your fists?
I wanna walk down Bristol
Who did the chunk?
Who's fakin' the funk?
Could you love?
Could you love?
Could you love?
Or do you like flirtin'?
When it's around you kill it for certain

Who runs the station?
Who likes double penetration?
Who got the mark?
(Who's got the mark?)
Who lose hesitation?
Yet easing into winning
It's getting
for a little minute
It's new ways
It's what made us
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

*** Thanx a lot to Elliott for this one ***
