Mic Righteous – Tempo Of The Dance (Dreamland Album)

[Verse 1]
Trust me, never done this shit for no one but me
If we’re bein’ truthful, brother, I can tell you I’ve been hurt
Sometimes I think, "Fuck these words"
And then I write one deep verse
And remind myself that I’ve seen worse, so I sit
My publisher would rather put 1D first
I remember when there was a time you used to trust me, thoughts
Late night walks where it was just me
Head torn, I’ve been tourin’ up and down the country
To come back to the county that I come from with no currency
Visit one of my brothers cause he needs a bit of company
And see he’s livin’ luxury
Stuntin’ doesn’t seem so struggle-free
My brother doesn’t seem so brotherly
You’ll say you didn’t mean it but the words you said are stuck with me
I know you’re under pressure, runnin’ your own company
You told me that the dream doesn’t seem like it’s comin’ true
Usually I brush it off but couldn’t cause it comes from you
That struck a chord, before you would encourage me, it cut me deep
Too late to turn my back on everyone in front of me
Thoughts? Fuck workin’ like a horse for a couple beans
Small town talk ask around
If you sow a seed in doubt, plants will sprout
Dumb digits’ll climb up and they can’t come down
If you don’t know your words are harmin’, you better calm your mouth
Vulnerable, in your lies lying comfortable
Make you seem untouchable, and you’re bein’ gullible
When that little bubble bursts you’ll learn who really fucks with you
That’s why I’m screamin’, "Fuck ’em all"

[Hook]
Only old pals around me, just allow me if you’re not
Cause these man only wanna be around you when you hot
You wasn’t ’round us from the drop, you just found us at the top
And now I got these doubters, you can doubt us if you want
Because I live to prove wrong
(Only old pals around me)
I said I live to prove wrong
(I don’t wanna hear your doubt nah allow me)
I said I live to prove wrong
(Don’t doubt me if you don’t know about me)
I said I live to prove wrong
(They won’t know what happens ’til they ground me)

[Verse 2]
(They only wanna know about you when you’re hot)
Now the album’s gonna drop
All I hear is, "One day this" and "Some day that"
Thought I got away from the devil but the cunt came back
She put that pussy on a plate and I ate that
Forbidden fruit, so my ex girl livin’ proof
Prayin’ that the next girl isn’t too
Wasted energy, basic memories, who’s to blame?
Wish the buzz was somethin’ you could change
If I could I would’ve never loved you more than this music game
But will I ever love again?
Took a rapper for granted, found the highest target
Shoot your aim
Look at what we do for fame
Get all we want then do away
Well that’s human nature, we’ve been through the pain
We move on to others, they move on and do the same
And that’s the usual, the ugliest people can be so beautiful
Suddenly, the beat it doesn’t seem so suitable
No time for rest as I write the rest of this musical
First part, don’t let go of the past
Now you have their ears, don’t let go of their hearts
You’re Esco with the bars, your friends know that you’re hard
They want you in the charts, don’t let go of the chance
Headin’ out to shows with no petrol in the car
Every second that I let go, I get old, I can’t
My family don’t get why I’m dead broke
I’m deffo on my arse
I guess that’s the tempo of the dance
I’m certain of my future like a psychic read a palm
Maybe it’s the patience that’s ringin’ red alarms
I don’t wanna see a skeptic have the last laugh
Nearly spent seven years to perfect my every part
Thinkin’ of my examples and I don’t get very far
Because not many of them last or achieve
What they set out from the start
Selling out, dwellin’ on what could be
I live to prove people wrong because they overlook me
I live to see my son smile, father livin’ cushty
Knowin’ that my friends are the only ones that push me
The reason I ain’t sittin’ ’round thinkin’ ’bout what could be
I pushed and I pushed since the day that I came out the pussy
Came out the womb and as soon as I could speak
I know where God had put me
Came out the womb and as soon as I could speak
I know where God had put me

[Hook]
Only old pals around me, just allow me if you’re not
Cause these man only wanna be around you when you’re hot
You wasn’t ’round us from the drop, you just found us at the top
And now I got these doubters, you can doubt us if you want
Because I live to prove wrong
Only old pals around me
I said I live to prove wrong
I don’t wanna hear your doubt nah allow me
I said I live to prove wrong
Don’t doubt me if you don’t know about me
I said I live to prove wrong
They won’t know what happens ’til they ground me
