   tricky:
can't be with the one you love then love the one you're with
spliff in the ashtray, red stripe i pull the lid
her touch tickles, especially when she's gentle
but i don't hear a words 'cause i side the instrumental
keep the girl in the distance, moves are very hazy
no sunshine in my life the way i did it is shady
   3D:
skip hip data to get the anti-matter
blue lines are the reason why the temple had to shatter
to the sound of silence surrounded by the mass
her face is on the paper 'n all strangers that i pass
the ones that looking back to see if they are looking back at me
   daddy g:
are you predator or do you fear me
   3D:
yeah while i'm doing this i know
the place i really wanna go
the one i love but never gets near me
   tricky:
it's a beautiful day, well it seems as such
beautiful thoughts means i dream too much
even if i told you, you still would not know me
tricky never does, adrian mostly gets lonely
now we live in this existence, just being
english upbringing, background caribbean
   3D:
it's the way that we deal-ity
sharing a soliloquy
we cut the broken thread from flexibility
mi chiamo 3D si sono inglese
no sunshine in my life because the way i deal is hazy
and everyday's a daisy 'cause i'm on my toes
while contemporaries of mine remaining comatose
   tricky:
there's a looking glass she's looking through
she hated me, but then she loved me too
i'd lie not try so i lost faith
return to her to keep the faith
she told me take an occupation or you lose your mind
and on a nine to five lemon, looking for the lime
   3D:
box clever, watch your system come together
crazy weather at the end of my tether
   daddy g:
massive in the area (murderer)
attackin' in the area (murderer)
   3D:
some go softly softly round the habitat
ratchet in the right hand
they got no one to stab it at
take a walk billy, don't be a hero
effort's on minimal though almost touch zero
excommunicated from the brotherhood of man
to wander lonely as a puzzled anagram
car paint blue, green, primer and zinc
take it to extremities my purple and pink
i feel the colours fill my room beneath the patter of the rain
i can't stand the drops that dripping down my window pane
they wash away my shadow and don't even leave a spark upon my soul
they leave the rainbows in the dark
   tricky:
blues get big, massive are even larger
save 'nuff space until the tricky told us
we'd trawl what i saw from down in dance hall
people laying their claim
in stormy weather it's rain
   3D:
but you're living on a see-saw
   tricky:
i tried to see more
   3D:
somebody died did he, nobody
walking on sunshine, as though we're treading water
the son of many reasons searching for the daughter
seeking knowledge, not acknowledging the jetset
silver papers of the sound within my budokan headset
the solar system watches in wisdom
the children danced as the moonlight kissed them
   tricky:
to massive attack matt black appear wearing beads
two hours travelling so i wrote this en rapide
always living fast, people getting jumpy
where i googy farz (?) i just do the walter crumpy (?)
microphones held close, crouching far apart
take my peace of mind and sign my name across your heart
