CONSEQUENCES
Give me a solution to this political resolution.
The streets give me a revolver my get out clause my resolver
Society gives me a lifetime of debt.

Fervently, they require earnestly
That I attend university.
And if I want to end up with a good salary.
Then I guess I have to pay them back dramatically.

But I suffer from a sense of direction
Especially from the lack of funds my mum could generate.
As much as I love my mum and family I had to have a taste...

A taste of being that bad boy in the streets
Then when I'm at home doing my chores; 
I'd be muddling laundry business with the girls in between my sheets.
Pillow talks followed morning lectures
Leaving peers considering me as a geek, 
Me a geek!?
However, nobody knows what's hidden amid my jeans and my briefs.

Seriously, it's liberating when I spray bullets
Piercing the cranium or cardiac muscle is where the impact is most devastating.
Sometimes I need an AK47
To penetrate like our soldiers gunning down innocence based on orders.
I'm going off topic so let me come back to my waters.

No no no!
Don't get me wrong. 
Everybody stay in their seats, 
This is not a stick up
I repeat THIS IS NOT A STICK UP!
See we're not trying to invoke violence
And this right here, this is not a ripple effect of the riots.
Please abort the call; we don't want any worry from Trident.

The calibre I penetrate you with
Inscribes into your mind
Invoking paradigm changes
Prescribes soul jerking enlightenment
As my calibre is of a defining breed
Penetrating you mentally
Breaking through barriers of social depravity.

He's young, He's black.
Potentially all he will ever do
Is surround himself with crack
Or emulate that family boy Ayo
And quote on quote try to rap.
Sounds like David Starkey sort of talks
Which is more opinionated than facts.

So I'm going to gun buck you into a new reality, 
Understand that I'm making you my casualty.
Breaking the mould of this hood mentality, 
That you've been sold.
Reprogramming the mindset
So the mind, is set, to work hard
That's the goal.
Let this new idea settle and unfold
Instead of being behind bars
Turns your dreams into gold.
Instead of being behind bars 
Turn your dreams into gold.
INSTEAD OF BEING BEHIND BARS
TURN YOUR DREAMS INTO GOLD.
