Skints, The - Just Can't Take No More Lyrics




To share your life's work is your only reward
You live by the pen and you die by the sword
I'm struggling to breathe as I fall through the floor
And I just can't take no more

I can't get no money for the music I play
I can't get no respect for the things that I say
I'm building cobwebs just to blow them away
And I just can't take no more

When I was a youth this was never the plan
Thought that things would turn out better once I grew into a man
Now I'm crawling in the dirt because I'm too scared to stand
And I just can't take no more

They say the struggle for power will turn your heart sour
Every hour of your days
If you just can't be there inevitably
You will crumble and blow away

Alone, oh yeah
Oh Lord, oh yeah

Cause there ain't no time for danger
And there ain't no time for love
When we met we both were strangers
Well I guess once push comes to shove

I don't wanna go back to a world
I don't wanna go back to a world
I don't wanna go back to a world
Without you

We spend these days living life on the road
We take what we can get and try to do as we're told
There's a glimmer in the distance but it's never paved in gold
And we just can't take no more

There's no guarantees for this music we play
We don't want to dissect everything that we say
No we don't believe in Jah but we're still writing dub reggae
And we just can't take no more

They say the struggle for power will turn your heart sour
Every hour of your days
If you just can't be there inevitably
You will crumble and blow away

Alone, oh yeah
Oh Lord, oh yeah

Cause there ain't no time for danger
And there ain't no time for love
When we met we both were strangers
Well I guess once push comes to shove

I don't wanna go back to a world
I don't wanna go back to a world
I don't wanna go back to a world
Without you

Cause there ain't no time for danger
And there ain't no time for love
When we met we both were strangers
Well I guess once push comes to shove

I don't wanna go back to a world
I don't wanna go back to a world
I don't wanna go back to a world
Without you

    To share your life's work is your only reward
    You live by the pen and you die by the sword
    I'm struggling to breathe as i fall through the floor
    And i just can't take no more

    I can't get no money for the music i play
    I can't get no respect for the things that i say
    I'm building cobwebs just to blow them away
    And i just can't take no more
    When i was a youth this was never the plan
    Thought that things would turn out better once i grew into a man
    Now i'm crawling in the dirt because i'm too scared to stand
    And i just can't take no more

    They say the struggle for power will turn your heart sour
    Every hour of your days
    If you just can't be there inevitably you will crumble and blow away
    Alone, oh yeah
    Oh lord, oh yeah

    Cause there ain't no time for danger
    And there ain't no time for love
    When we met we both were strangers
    Well i guess once push comes to shove
    I don't wanna go back to a world without you

    We spend these days living life on the road

    We don't want to dissect everything that we say
    No we don't believe in Jah but we're still writing dub reggae
    And we just can't take no more
