No Avoid 07:14
No Avoid Waiting on pages Let me waste wages Stack a week to make an hour A salary for a Sunday out east Or cents for a shotgun lease Two jobs and two ‘jobs’ Free work doesn’t pay rent Stop start all day Takes an a hour just to get away So get a ten minute ride No simple way round Having numb legs, numb legs and fraught talk. A mile never felt so long With so much between - Could be/free - Pass people, pass on people Endless supply to move through Up 7 floors, through welded doors Always looking over shoulder Sights to be seen Recognised through square eyes Raised fists to the east Sun rests upon fake feast And we covered ground Laid concrete waste down To bake in the heat at night Smog in lungs, and smog in skies No avoid of poison prise No avoid of noise at night fans, motors and new found plans movement doesn’t cease Drift lanes Jump under trains Walking feels like a dream But looks like a freak The ones that holla on the street Preganant, defeated or living on a dream Every feet gets you closer To the excuse for staying here - Could be free - Free, free to come, To come with me oh come with me. Same face most days Knowing names is a treat Pavement clean and Golden sun on brick Peace, peace holed up With time to think No rushing down of sand To work is waste Time turns to other ways To impress is waste Time turns to other ways To trend is waste Time turns to other ways To stay for sake of face Take time to other place

This is the day that I died And I have not felt so alive It took my whole life to realise That it goes over and over. You wanna let it all out But they just say "shut your mouth" Yeah together we are flying under the radar Just checking in to check it out Does gravity just get you down Although the world revolves around you now Keep your feet placed on the ground Because when it's over it's over You wanna let it all out But they just say "shut your mouth" Yeah together we are flying under the radar Just checking in to check it out

Give me a signal give me the wave All this interference will only get in our way Look through the static and it's clear to see You and I occupy our own frequency I heard you shouting on the radio So far away so long ago I heard your voice through the white noise It struck a chord It seemed to scream is this real or is this just a dream or maybe both I saw your name in the liner notes I searched forever to hear those words you wrote So naive to go in blind so excited to see what I would find Far too many drowned in the stream They're all lost behind the screen I heard your voice through the white noise It struck a chord It seemed to scream is this real or is this just a dream or maybe both
