i know nothing Lyrics – slowthai

I Know Nothing

My whole generation misguided
We are one and the same
It cuts me deep
I pray understanding that I won’t be heard
I’m in line like everyone else there’s no exception
I lay still with my legs shaking out of anxiety
Some people ain’t comfortable with their sexuality
It must be awful to wake up and live a lie
Society tells us we need money, we need a mortgage
We fall into what’s expected instead of what we want
Greed fuels the hungry and no one gives a fuck
We rely on a system that’s failed us
We’re in prison waiting for a day off
Social media distorts out perception of reality
Because everyone seems happy but in fact they’re miserable
That’s why they need gratification from strangers

Sometimes I look in the mirror and reflect on what I used to be
Before the people I loved started using me

I know nothing
I’m just getting older
I know nothing
I’m just getting older
I know nothing
I’m just getting older
I know nothing
I’m just getting older
I know nothing
I’m just getting older

My whole generation misguided
We are one and the same
It cuts me deep
I pray understanding that I won’t be heard
I’m in line like everyone else there’s no exception
I lay still with my legs shaking out of anxiety
Some people ain’t comfortable with their sexuality
It must be awful to wake up and live a lie
Society tells us we need money, we need a mortgage
We fall into what’s expected instead of what we want
Greed fuels the hungry and no one gives a fuck

Sometimes I look in the mirror and reflect on who I used to be
Before the people I loved started using me

I know nothing
I keep getting older
I know nothing
I keep getting older
I know nothing
I keep getting older
I know nothing
I keep getting older
I know nothing
I keep getting older
