Intro: Kay WillsThere goes another man down
So it's lights out
In my town
There goes another man down
The streets is cunning
So I keep on running


Verse 1: GhettsYoung black boy from the ends growing up around shotters, murderers and robbers
Favourite game in the playground we used to play was burglars and coppers
I was never the fed though
One day I took it way too far and got sent home
I had to explain to my mum
I know it weren't easy raising her son
I made it past 25 I'm amazed on what your prayers have done
A few of the mandem aint here now
I'm looking at old school pictures
A few a man are were titch is
A few of my * have been admitted to mental homes
And aint getting home for a minute
so when its flash back Fridays I'm putting up a picture on insta
My bruddas aint ere with us on a caption saying I miss ya
My heart goes out to your mothers and Fathers
Aunties and uncles daughters and sons
Brothers and Sisters I'm at another funeral tears in my eyes
There’s couple man here I despise but we’re enemies with a mutual friend n I feel like there’s
sincerely a sign
On the real doe
Is there still hope
When it’s kill or be killed, no
Its reality we’re all people with real guns and real anarchy
Pac said it’s just the way it is
Another man dead every other day in the bits
Throwing up gang signs
Living on a landmine
Sad times

Hook: Kay WillsSo it's lights out
In my town
There goes another man down
The streets is cunning
So I keep on running
Mmm
Cause people fight out for
One crown
There goes another down
The streets is cunning
There just try to find a way of coming out
So they keep on running

Verse 2: Lunar CTake a drive and look at my home town
See I grew in the scoller like mold
If you’re dumb enough to be someone that stood on my toes
I can either crush your pride or swallow my own
There goes another man down
Another reckless youth don't wanna back out
Cos everything he's been taught up until now
Man he thinks he's gotta act stubborn and proud
If you’re from round here then you’re used to it
If you end up here try to adapt
The only people around here have money or, drug dealers, so we aspire to be that
We blocked the pain out and put up with the anguish
Cos misery loves company but it doesn't attract it
I was brought up broke and grew up going to school with holes in my shoes
I told them I might do well but only time will tell
So I guess this is a moment of truth
The city looked bigger when I was at knee height
So if I’m not a giant now at least that’s what it feels like
It’s nothing pretty the life I’m living isn’t picturesque
The shit I see will give you nightmares and make you piss the bed
Money mentality
Generations so pass it down
And I still aint got much I can brag about but I aint gotta wear my brothers handy downs

Hook: Kay WillsSo it's lights out
In my town
There goes another man down
The streets is cunning
So I keep on running
Mmm
Cause people fight out for
One crown
There goes another down
The streets is cunning
There just try to find a way of coming out
So they keep on running

Verse 3: TempzFor their lives cos this war ain't nice
I was raised on the same streets where I saw him die, it's deep
Right before my eyes on a pouring night
yeah there’s war outside
and it sure aint right on either side there’s some that grind
or there’s more that ride and that's all the time
From 9 to 5 tryna survive and 5 to 9 aint no different
Tryna provide for that kitchen
Another guy just went missing

Family cry cos they miss him
Yeah each day be vital it’s just the vicious cycle we live in
And you can hear it through verses
As it emerges to the surface
My mind keeps spinning like this earth is
Constant pain like we deserve this
I’m tryna change I aint perfect
From where there’s no change in mum’s purses
Some mistakes that weren't worth it
Just finished community service
But shit weren't new to me
Been serving the community
But nothing got through to me
I can do more than you can do for me
And that’s just the way it is it’s that real you can either take or give
But still faith exists but I'm used to it cos it’s the way we live
It’s just the way we live
