Tricky
You can be with the one you love or love the one you're with
Spliff in the ashtray-we're strong but far too little
Her touch tickles, especially when she's gentle
But i don't hear words cos i saw the instrumental
Keep the girl at a distance, moves are very hazy
No sunshine in my life the way i deal 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 not the 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

You wanna do a medicinal
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 also gets lonely
How we live in this existence, just be
English upbringing, background carribean

3D

Sharing a soliliquy
We cut the vocal drop the flexibility
Walk a temper 'cause i'm rated comatose
No sunshine in my life cos the way i deal is hazy
Life from day to dazey cos i'm on my toes
Mickey i'm a 3dsey sign away glazey

Tricky

It'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
They turn 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 sister come together
Crazy weather at the end of my tether

Daddy G

Massive in the area, murderer
Attack are in the area, murderer

3D

Some go softly softly when i have a tat
Ratchet in the right hand
They got the one to stab it at
Take a walk billy, don't be a hero
Efforts are minimal they're almost at zero
Excommunicated from the brotherhood of man
To wander lonely as a puzzled anagram
Carve me blue, green ?brumma? and zinc
Take it to extremities with purple and pink
I feel the colours fill my room beneath the patter of the rain
I can't stand the drops they're dripping down my windowpane
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 no space into the tricky tardis
Withdraw what i saw from down in darris hall
People laying their claim
In stormy weather it's rain

3D

But you're living on a see-saw

Tricky

I try to see more

3D

Somebody died, did he, no body
Walking on sunshine, but still we're treading water
The son of many reasons searching for the daughter
Seeking knowledge, not acknowledging the jetset
Sample babies soft sounds in my budakon headset
The solar system watches in wisdom
The children dance as the moonlight kissed them

Tricky

Massive attack not black up here or where i be
Two hours traveling so i wrote this on my feet
Always living fast, people getting jumpy
Where on ?gruggy? falls i do the walter crumpy
Microphones held close, crouching far apart
Take my piece of mind and sign my name across your heart
