lyrics

[WARDIE BURNS]
(Werd plays in background)
Alright man, Listen
We’re no here to preach to you man
No here to teach you either
So listen
If you stop pointing the blades
They’ll stop pointing the fingers

[WERD]
I’ve seen some broken hearts
Seen families fall apart
Make a start - Play your part
Heard life is what you make it I...
Live life and disregard
See words they leave no scars
Maybe some I got to be sharp
dont wanna see myself/cell behind bars [X2]

[WARDIE BURNS]
Drop that knife and pick up a pen
If you do that now you'd live to the end
Dont spend your life in Saughton prison
Parents worrying your bodies missing
Put that knife away - Dont give your life away
We'll all end up dead or in jail and that’s no nice to say
Why do we fight this way? (why) I dinny like this way
We are all getting stabbed everyday over some stuff we say
So get your life in perspective I know a knife is effective
But you might live to regret it but just don’t die to forget it
Why don’t we be precise just stop and leave the knife
Don’t want to leave this life get cross like Jesus Christ
Throw you a life line say no to knife crime
You might find you will grow up alone crying at nighttime

[WERD]
I’ve seen some broken hearts
Seen families fall apart
Make a start - Play your part
Heard life is what you make it I...
Live life and disregard
See words they leave no scars
Maybe some I got to be sharp
dont wanna see myself/cell behind bars

Cause, first comes violence
Next, well next comes sirens
Then, you've got trial and
You might see your ma pure crying
Why, dont you remember
You loose your life if you loose your temper
Loose the knife or you will spend your
Life in a cell by yourself remember
That, this life will pass ye
Cause Police, they will catch ye
So ken what, a dont stab ye
I've got the balls ti scrap and a'l smash ye
(yeah) But am not saying fight
Im just saying dont pick up knife
In fact, just do what you like
I cant tell you how ti live your life

I’ve seen some broken hearts
Seen families fall apart
Make a start - Play your part
Heard life is what you make it I...
Live life and disregard
See words they leave no scars
Maybe some I got to be sharp
dont wanna see myself/cell behind bars

[WARDIE BURNS/WERD]
Think - ha
Just Think - something you dont do
Just Think - for a change
Just Think - one time, just listen

Just Think - before you pick up a blade
Just Think - is this what you want ti dae
Just Think - before you pick up a blade
Just Think - is this what you want ti dae

[WERD]
I’ve seen some broken hearts
Seen families fall apart
Make a start - Play your part
Heard life is what you make it I...
Live life and disregard
See words they leave no scars
Maybe some I got to be sharp
dont wanna see myself/cell behind bars [X2]

Like… Whats the time? Does it matter?
You’re not going anywhere
Nobody to meet
Just yourself in your cell…
