The Skints – Mindless Lyrics

People out on the streets are living in fear, giving in to fear
I don’t interfere with them problems but you know that I’m here
Panicking like mannequins to a system that never hears us
Them ah need to fear us, them ah need to fear us
So many times yah seen them crushed right under the thumb
From the pressure that come with capitalist consumption
And so many times yah know we seen ah them ah come ah free
From the oppressions of an addictive personality

So don’t be so mindless
Carry yah mind external
Selflessness is the key
Don’t be so mindless
Carry yah mind external
Selflessness is the key
Don’t be so mindless
Carry yah mind external
Selflessness is the key
Don’t be so mindless
Carry yah mind external

But you’re gonna beat them down, kick ah them outta town
Better pull your shit together ’cause we ain’t fuckin’ around
I see politician, politician, politics, head on a stick, Polaroid picture
Making me sick everyday when I’m sifting through them newspaper clippings
And I can’t get no benefits because the Job Centre take them away
And I can’t get no job because there ain’t no decent jobs out there today
And I’m just getting by with my music, loving the records and shows that we play
In this time of financial recession won’t you just let me, let me have my way?

Be my way
Never never never gonna be my way
Never never never gonna be my way
Never never gonna be my way

I said
Never never never gonna be my way
Never never never gonna be my way
Never never never gonna be my way
Never never gonna be my way
