Urthboy – Block The Exit Lyrics

Posted on

[Verse 1: Urthboy]
Smoke wafts up to the light globe
Punched through a tight cone
Ragtag bunch enter my home
MiniDisc from the pocket of my coat
Plug it in the mixer, [?] flow
We independant as f*ck [?] stuck
Maybe we can make our own luck
Cause all these majors suck (that’s wassup!)
We came in here to kill that noise
Stay asleep while we fill that void
One and one, two and two till we feel employed
Make a sum of our dreams like Sigmund Freud
At that point the industry were enemies
No idea, [?] destiny
E—T is the entity
And none of this happened accidentally

[Pre-Hook: Urthboy]
And even if they block the exit
And lock the gates
And everything around is hectic
And all of us make mistakes
Try to throw off direction
Barriers in our way
I got far too much invested
You gotta keep pace

[Hook: Urthboy]
No good reversing away
Been going to long to stop now
Thought I was against the grain
Startin’ to see what I got now
No good reversing away
No good reversing away

[Verse 2: Urthboy]
We formed a band that we called The Herd
Unaware Peter Frampton had got it first
From upon comin’ together to put in work
If we could subvert well [?] first
And we were lucky enough people listened
By the time the second album dropped we saw the mission
Fingers up against the powers that control the system
How did the math conquer with the long division
And who care about drugs when you seein’ that addiction to power
Vinyard so beautiful, grapes so sour
Had our first run in with shock-jock coward
Pissin’ off rednecks, couldn’t be prouder
But the rich old white man still got the country on lock

In many ways nothing has changed
Finally the king died, only for the new guy
To end up being more of the same

[Pre-Hook: Urthboy]
And even if they block the exit
And lock the gates
And everything around is hectic
And all of us make mistakes
Try to throw off direction
Barriers in our way
I got far too much invested
You gotta keep pace

[Hook: Urthboy]
No good reversing away
Been going to long to stop now
Thought I was against the grain
Startin’ to see what I got now
No good reversing away
No good reversing away

[Verse 3: Urthboy]
See Elefant Traks been goin’ for a while now
Ain’t lookin’ like anything will die down
And I’m part of this industry right now
And until I put the mic down
I’ll be able to cite them
Will I be another one of these white men
At the top, no idea about entitlement?
What I hated all the way back in the cypher when
Goin’ indie I will always look like them [?] growin’ up poor
Gave me what I need to open up these doors
I ain’t even paused to reflect on the advantages I get
Yeah, the privilege that I can afford
All I know is tread carefully
Shut the f*ck up, tread carefully
Intentions get misplaced
But you gotta keep pace

[Hook: Urthboy]
No good reversing away
Been going to long to stop now
Thought I was against the grain
Startin’ to see what I got now
No good reversing away
Been going to long to stop now
Thought I was against the grain
Startin’ to see what I got now
No good reversing away

[Post-Hook: Urthboy]
No good reversing away
No good reversing away
