about

Much to my surprise, this song won the 2012 WAM Song of the Year in the Hip Hop category.

lyrics

I'm addicted to caffeine and coffee shop pastries,
Addicted to the slops and I've had a lot lately.
Not addicted but loving the smell of epoxy,
Plus I can't get enough of the alcohol hydroxy.
Addicted to poxy mockery on Facebook.
I fiend for the fame but I say I'm all good.
I'm a name dropper proper with the names I do drop.
By the way, did I tell you about the time I met Snoop Dogg?
The grog and corn chips got no support group.
I hit them hard like a slap war dude.
Plus I can't seem to stop with the record shop digging.
Is there any way at all you can halt these addictions?

I'm angry bout the fact that I've stuck to rap
For ten years yet here I sit with no kick back
And I hate all rappers that use the word SWAG
I hate all rappers that use the term FAG
I hate every beat that I've made of late, had
A few issues, since you asked they're bad.
Plus I'm mad that they still do rent inspections,
Every two months, rude cunts, I'm a good tenant.
Acting like I'm tearing up the place I let,
I've been hear three years. Don't they trust me yet?

I'm scared of the girls that want to make small talk.
What the fuck could I say that won't leave you all bored?
Plus sometimes I wake in the middle of the night
In a cold sweat dreaming bout the world outside.
I'm scared of committment also dying alone,
I'm scared of having nothing also buying a home
And I fear I'm not normal coz when I look around,
Every other motherfucker has this life shit down.
And I write shit down, but I'm scared folks will read it
And think I'm a psycho, a douche or a dipshit.
I'd get lit, but I fear to smoke green,
Coz I used to do it lots (that is addiction again).

I love girls with long legs and short statures,
Short brown hair and brown eyes to match it.
I love freedom, having nothing to do,
And spitting to a rhythm when I'm up in a booth.
I love clutching Truth and knowing you can't grab it,
I'm quick to duck down black holes after white rabbits.
I love breaks and basslines and rhodes keys.
I love notes, my favourite one's the low G.
I love being lonely. I know that's strange,
But I have the best time when alone with my brain.
And I'm close to my family, coz they know me,
And my friends. But the rest can just fuck off, see?
