The Streets
Prangin’ Out
[Intro: Mike Skinner & Jackie Rawe]
(I see through you)
I get back from touring and suddenly it doesn't seem like much fun To be off my face at a quarter to eleven A.M

[Chorus: Mike Skinner & Example, Mike Skinner]
You're pranging out, I see through you (I feel awful)
There's voices talking to me, this ain't even funny
(The iron has been on in my house for four f**king weeks)
I see through you, I'm about to do something stupid

[Verse 1: Mike Skinner & Jackie Rawe]
I dare say why my manager got lairy and smacked me
(I see through you)
These headaches are getting unbearably nasty
Staring at the crack work, looking scary with my brandy
(I see through you)
The rock 'n' roll cliche walked in and then smacked me
Carelessly rackin' out prangs just to handle the fear
(I see through you)
I do a line, but then panic and feel a bit pranged
So I glug Marlon from the bottle to ease off the panic
(I see through you)
Then when it starts wearing off, I just feel a bit sad
Snort more tour support, and then have a drink
(I see through you)
The bruise on the side of my head is madly banging
The only reason I started this was to deal me a laughing
(I see through you)
The only reason I started this was to deal me a laughing

[Chorus: Mike Skinner & Example]
You're pranging out, I see through you
There's voices talking to me, this ain't even funny
I see through you, I'm about to do something stupid

[Verse 2: Mike Skinner & Jackie Rawe]
The girl in my bed is kinda distant right now
(I see through you)
I know she's thinking she's a bit frightened somehow
I don't think she realised why I'd invited her back to my house
(I see through you)
I don't want anyone to see me like this right now
All sorts of thoughts rolling back in my eyes
(I see through you)
I've been a poor sport, thoughts dance in my mind
A banging headache, dancing pranged by their side
(I see through you)
Dancing with the pictures from the past of my life
I don't remember any of what I just thought at all
(I see through you)
The conclusion prior to when I forgot it all
Panicking a bit, getting frightened of f**k all
(I see through you)
So, nursing my bruise, I drink right from the bottle
I don't want anyone I know to see me like this
(I see through you)
My fibs in single became lies in lists
She's gonna sell-tell no doubt, f**k it
(I see through you)
I'm not gonna start drinking, no, I can't for now
[Chorus: Mike Skinner & Example]
You're pranging out, I see through you
There's voices talking to me, this ain't even funny
I see through you, I'm about to do something stupid

[Verse 3: Mike Skinner & Jackie Rawe]
My laptop must have slipped down and gone to sleep
(I see through you)
Before the prang, this pain was to dawn on me (Stupid idiot)
Around the time I was sketching, trying to con some sleep
(I see through you)
And the new day on me was nearly dawning in here
I must have flaked while I inputted, waging loads more
(I see through you)
'Cause I staked on bookings, way to total score
Why do I break my rules not to wager anymore? (So stupid)
(I see through you)
I’d flaked on the bookings and majorly totalled on the score
I’ve got a simple problem, but my mind's spinning out
(I see through you)
I remembered the website between the wine and the stout
(My mind's spinning out)
The rush of fear made me forget how f**ked I'd been
(I see through you)
This time I’m drying my eyes and a f**king nosebleed
Turning my phone off when my promo bloke phones me
(I see through you)
Evaded for it getting nasty when my manager
When he only beat me (F**kin' leave it, man)
I threw his wallet out the window as it had grown heated
He said, "Sort your life out", as he punched me over to my feet
[Chorus: Mike Skinner & Example]
You're pranging out, I see through you
There's voices talking to me, this ain't even funny
I see through you, I'm about to do something stupid
You're pranging out, I see through you
There's voices talking to me, this ain't even funny
I see through you, I'm about to do something stupid

[Outro: Mike Skinner & Jackie Rawe]
Right now, logic states I need to be not contemplating suicide
(I see through you)
With rational thought, it would seem that I need to be
Doing the stuff that makes death seem like an easier option
(I see through you)
I need a totally trojan plan right now
(I see through you)
