Devlin

"Too Far Gone"

[Verse 1]
I practised, took a risk like Rooney
And rode ‘round Dagga with a dog
There ain't no glamour in the manor
When the manor gettin’ shot
sh*t gets deep and because
Someone got stabbed and wrapped for a box
I feel the tension, pass me a Benson
Gimme five like MI I’m lost
I don’t wanna try and be something that I’m not
Knew that I’d fit in if I played the game
Fitting in is lame and it’s not what I want
All I ever wanted was the OT crew
To be that damn huge, that we'd all be gods
Dreams of a youngster
Inflated and punctured
Now its just me in the spot
Lonely soul I walk this road alone
Still marching deep in the fog

[Chorus]
I gave, and they took
I played, by the book
I fell, and I've stood
And now I’m too far gone to come back
I gave, and they took
I played, by the book
I fell, and I've stood
And now I’m too far gone to come back

[Verse 2]
Think it was easy?
Trying to do something positive here
When everyone’s greedy
Backhanded, sleazy
I gave what I could but the calls still bleed me
So what if there’s nothin’ left
No Jim, no James, no f*ckin’ Devz
Just a machine programmed to be the MC
That you know from the Dagenham ends
It’s autopilot, when I make assaults on pirates
I ain’t got thoughts in my head
Think too much, then I might lose touch
With the brain cell left and fall to a depth
So low, the Sun don’t glow
The sky don’t snow in a spider’s web
All I know is when I’m here alone
I’m in a zone that’s free from an actual tense

[Chorus]
I gave, and they took
I played, by the book
I fell, and I've stood
And now I’m too far gone to come back
I gave, and they took
I played, by the book
I fell, and I've stood
And now I’m too far gone to come back

[Verse 3]
It’s game on now, when I reign on now
There ain’t no way no how
That a boy that made the manor proud
Could fade or drown, I ain’t ever fallin’ down
Been there didn't think I'd ever get back
Now its on top, tell her mummy its a wrap
Focus, tryna put money in the bank
Make another artist curry in their pants
It’s all bants, what more do you want from me?
A constant stream of meaningful messages
Idles and effigies, die and they bleed (Die and they bleed)
What more do you want from me?
A constant stream of meaningful messages
Idles and effigies, die and they bleed (Die and they bleed)

[Chorus]
I gave, and they took
I played, by the book
I fell, and I've stood
And now I’m too far gone to come back
I gave, and they took
I played, by the book
I fell, and I've stood
And now I’m too far gone to come back
