  4. 4. Che che-che che che-che checkI...Yeh yeh yeaYeah ya ya ya ya yeahOK, tskIm 44 years old and life aint golden.Like Gil Scott said when you got no cash,Got no cheque book, got no credit card.Life is pretty hard.Im sure you can see that Im plus under-rated, plus bare knock-backs.Been shown the door cause they talking bout cut backs.And you think what next, left or the right orKey in the door but the door wont open and heartbeat frozen.Look to the heavens, but nobodys coming and the pies in the oven.So you stop mind wandering and back to the present,Its a dinner for one with the dimmer lights on.And youre tryna get atmosphereLike she was here, but shes long gone.Like Rocky Balboa and Adrian.Teardrops while you sip on the Evian.No no no no no noI aint got the license to kill like double OI just wanna live life and survive itNo no no no no noI aint got the license to kill like double OI just wanna live life and survive itI gotta move man but its hard when youre glued in place.I so desperately wanna leave this pace.In a steamy hot bath I just hide my face,The world looks different underwater.I coulda had a son or a daughter.When I had the chance to a trip to Majorca.Life is a funny thing with the twists and turnsAnd in the bad times it just breaks and burns.But as you get older you just live and learnAnd shrug your shoulders and be the bigger man.But, I remember nights in DecemberFairy lights and torn up wrapping paper and happy times,Now its happy slaps and how bigs your gat and all that crap.Oh Mac allow that...I know theres reason to part but Ill get throughIf I just remember that..No no no no no noI aint got the license to kill like double OI just wanna live life and survive itNo no no no no noI aint got the license to kill like double OI just wanna live life and survive itI knowTimes are hardYoure against the wall, andYour head is down, butI thinkYoull get there soonJust have a little faith mateItll turn out greatYeah, its all mapped out, like one of them SatnavsYou need to get over there, then down to here,Go down the road and left at the roundabout.Head out the window, so much to shout about.Unnaturally buzzing, allow pessimism.Burn in the flames like a phoenix has risen, well I hope so.Thats the plan in the end, get a nice house a few true friends.A wife I can cry with laugh and create withKids so beautiful theyre truly a blessing,But Im just guessing just speculating.Thinking out loud you know all thats what I doAnd I dont know much but I know what is right.Dont mock my grit, skin, Im trying my bestBut Im only a man doing what I can.Ill go forth, with these words in my hand, in my hand.No no no no no noI aint got the license to kill like double OI just wanna live life and survive itNo no no no no noI aint got the license to kill like double OI just wanna live life and survive itGhostpoet - Survive It(Peanut Butter Blues & Melancholy Jam, 2011)
