Skints, The - Live East Die Young Lyrics




Jade is 15 she lives in a little flat in Ilford with her mum and two younger brothers, no job
But her mum's in Primark
She's the prettiest girl in her class by far but she's not on that school ting nah, she's got her head in the clouds, at least, out of the window
So when the weekend comes, there's a party down at her girl friend's drum where they play that sound
"bede-bam-bam-bam, bede-bam-bam-bam"
And in walks Justin from Manor Park and he's got money, he's got a car, he promises the world, and know he's 10 years older...

She was just a young girl, who had too much to drink
With a scumbag who wanted to take advantage
Now another little yout, with her own little kid
She cries "it was supposed to be like this!"

Well I'm telling ya that this is not a state of address, trust
It's merely what I've seen growing up out in the bits
And I count my self a lucky one
So count yourself a lucky one in this Babylon system

You only get one life, and then you die
Someone tell me why, it's the same story each time

You only get one life, and then you die
Someone tell me why, it's the same story each time

Danny is 19, stays at his brother's place in Leyton
His parents have kicked him out because he wouldn't get a job
He tells them that "when I was at school, they treated me like I was a fool"
But his Daddy swears blind his youngest son is just a slob

And one day, one of Danny's brother's mates
Is at Danny's brother's place, and asks Danny boy if he wants some road man pay
And Danny boy is as broke as a fucking joke, what can he say?
And he wants to look The Don in front of the crew so that they rate him
All he's got to do is take a package to a rave in Gants Hill
And that's little more than 5 miles out from Leyton but little does he know
How things are about to go, the police authority have clocked his whole damn operation...

He was just a young boy who made a big mistake
Now it's seven years inside for pedalling cocaine
And he cries himself to sleep, and his mates say "it's a shame"
He goes "it wasn't supposed to be this way"

Well I'm telling ya that this is not a state of address, trust
It's merely what I've seen growing up out in the bits
And I count my self a lucky one
So count yourself a lucky one in this Babylon system

You only get one life, and then you die
Someone tell me why, it's the same story each time

You only get one life, and then you die
Someone tell me why, it's the same story each time

I count my self a lucky one
So count yourself a lucky one in this Babylon system
I count my self a lucky one
So count yourself a lucky one in this Babylon system
I count my self a lucky one
So count yourself a lucky one in this Babylon system
I count my self a lucky one
So count yourself a lucky one in this Babylon system

You only get one life, and then you die
Someone tell me why, it's the same story each time

You only get one life, and then you die
Someone tell me why, it's the same story each time

You only get one life, and then you die
Someone tell me why, it's the same story each time

You only get one life, and then you die
Someone tell me why, it's the same story each time
