Dirty Goods X Fernquest — Know No Other *Lyrics*
Because I know no other, this is my day-to-day life
The drum, the beat, the street, the mic, musics the thing that helps me get by
Believe me, I’ll stand up tall and give it my all, cos I aim to rise not fall
Don’t spend hours of your daytime worrying, if you got nothing to lose at all
See me, I’ve got nothing to lose, apart from this air that I breath
‘Til then I’m trapped in the zoo with the rest of the animals, yeah, I’m trying to break free
Help me, it feels like a trapped cage and my minds full of anger, rage
Wish that my dream would go the other way, leave me be, let me turn a new page cos
I’ve got no time to waste time, I stay busy with the pen I’ve got a great mind
See these days no I can’t go without listening to a little bit of UK grime
Became part of my life, swear down my right hand starves for this mic
No I can’t tell no porky pies cos the guys in my ends all know what I’m like, so
Anything that you want, you can get, just put yourself to the test
And anything you believe that you can achieve, try, you will succeed
And if you don’t succeed, then you know that you got to go and try again
And if you ever get down low, pick up your chin and put your head to the sky again.
(Chorus x 3)
Know No Other, I got nothing to lose you know I gave it my all, I gave it my all
We say that we do, but no we don’t, yeah you know its ok we both know what we want
Know No Other, better if you only, Know No Other, its better if you only
Say that we do, but no we don’t, yeah you know its ok we both know what we want
Cuz its true that I came from the bottom, the streets are rotten
A lot of guys turn into alckies end up forgotten, underage kids got the attitude, “There’s the police man, FFF um
But thats just the council life where kids wanna role with their swiss army knives
An’ we got young girls who are kids having kids and there doing all this because their parents thought it was right.
So I turned to the music life, picked up a pad and a pen and thought ok write
I’m gonna invest in a mic and a few instrumentals I like
Next thing I know I was living the studio life, where the mac is the meal, the mic is the wife
Feel’s like I moving right, money from music, got to be lost in sight so
I carry on improving and I know no other so I keep on moving
Musics the life that I’m choosing, aim for the first place cos you know I can’t start losing
Cos I aim to break free in this industry and this right here is the key
And I Know I aint speaking for myself so if you feel the same then come and follow me.
