lyrics

Make Believe

Verse 1

I think it's time to get a move with this music
far too sick of my very own excuses
I pen bars with a spark to get a fuse lit
I mean explosions in the back of my soul like

metal shrapnel ash stains and coal just
whatever it takes to un-strangle the hold
and have no control on what really has to be told

coz writing rhymes can be easy as shit
and I don't believe writers block even exists
fuck punching at the bricks while I bleed from my fist nah,

grab the block and seize it real quick
to hold it, I am chizzeling till I am
sculpting something that is strictly brilliant
marble art
carve it in my palms till it's sitting in it's very position on the mantle piece
all I need is some paper and a sampled beat

Chorus

let's play a game called make believe
maybe I could make it be,
coz fuck what all the voices what they say to me
one day oh it may just be,

let's play a game called make believe
and maybe I could make it be,
coz fuck what all the voices say to me
one day oh it may just be,

Verse 2

yeah I can do it
yeah I do believe in this thing
coz this planet doesn't ask for a reason to spin
so I don't need a reason, to ever be a beast and just win
plus I got a miniture muse
with the cheekiest grin ,she whispers in my ear,
then points to the brush and says dip this thing in here
then shows me to the picture where the lyrics will appear
before she screams, this is what they really need to hear,

I believe it don't need to really do nothing,
just swing back the doors and let another tune come in,
Let's play the game like I can't really lose nothing
before my calling does ring out,

get me on a flyer man get me on a gig now
get me on an elevated stage with a big sound
big arse speakers with a kick drum that kicks out
and not a single person there wants to sit down

Chorus

let's play a game called make believe
maybe I could make it be,
coz fuck what all the voices what they say to me
one day oh it may just be,

let's play a game called make believe
and maybe I could make it be,
coz fuck what all the voices say to me
one day oh it may just be,
