lyrics

Yeah
Cappo
Nottingham's own
The Midlands ambassador
Y'know, just some thoughts from the mind, take a glimpse into time

It's like I'm holding my breath
And standing still until I'm back in the lab
It's like I'm living as mute
Living in isolation til I'm back with the pad
It's like the pen is morphine
The beat's anaesthetic and time's the great healer
The slate cleaner
Feel the excellent rush, there's no feeling like it

It's like turns and twists
God moves in mysterious ways
One minute you're here the next minute you're gone
There's no telling what the future holds, you never know
It's like twists and turns
And we all living as part of God’s plan
One minute you're here the next minute you're not
I put my life into the hands of fate, I can't call it

I'm the common denominator
I’m in office, even on my off days I'm obligated
Hip-Hop culture is my rule of thumb
I’ve come to think of this as kin, this is water for thirst
Yo, and this is food for thought
My sustenance when the food is short
And often this is the only thing
That can keep me owning the onus and focussing
This is for those who witnessed my highs and witnessed my lows
And still pick the phone up when I'm ringing home
This is for those who are still here
And never still here, always moving and can still hear
Those who put their faith in, whether broke or caking
Through the ups and downs cultivating
That's them right there, that's my heroes
Father figures, they're my tight-knit, that's my kinfolk

Yo, it's like turns and twists
God moves in mysterious ways
One minute you're here the next minute you're gone
There's no telling what the future holds, you never know
It's like twists and turns
And we all living as part of God’s plan
One minute you're there the next minute you're gone
There's no telling what the future holds, I can't call it

I can't call it
You never know
It's Caps
Let's go

I'm on that final stretch, the last lap
Now I watch for those who I crossed and wronged on the way up
Cos on the way down without doubt they'll be there
Using all their might this time to right their wrongs
I'm at the end point, the last level hallway
Been here before, this is when the shit really hits the fan
This is when your trustees are turning ugly
And trying to unweave your tight-knit patterns in your battle plan
Stan Lee couldn't paint a better picture
When the Venom hits ya how you gonna stay immune and overcome?
You best to tight lip, keep a tight ship
All that slack jaw is gonna sink your SS Victory
I'm trying to stay a couple steps ahead
A couple extra hours in the distance cos time is of the essence
And honestly nobody want to see you properly make it
They'd rather be giving you their commiserations
Smiling through gritted teeth and trying to pick holes
I heavy step while they tiptoe through crib-holds
My silent missiles miles under the radar
Opening a hole that leads to the grey yonder
After the album I'm taking a hiatus
Let the mind race in and vacate to the skyscrapers
Recuperate in the cut and conduct the slow thunder
Cos absence will make the heart grow fonder

Yo, it's like turns and twists
God moves in mysterious ways
One minute you're here the next minute you're gone
There's no telling what the future holds, you never know
It's like twists and turns
And we all living as part of God’s plan
One minute you're there the next minute you're not
I put my life into the hands of fate, I can't call it

It's like I'm holding my breath
It's like I'm holding my breath
And standing still until I'm back in the lab
It's like I'm living as mute
Living in isolation 'til I'm back with the pad
It's like the pen is morphine
The beat's anesthetic and time's the great healer
The slate cleaner
Feel the excellent rush, there's no feeling like it
