Skints, The - Restless Lyrics

As the crowds grow restless
And express their distrust
I'm wide, wide, wide, wide awake

When the crowds grow restless
And express their distrust
I'm wide, wide, wide, wide awake

I'm wide, wide awake as their schemes and plots
Are hatched and reared in the nest of the vipers
If you think they think you matter, you are mistaken
To them you are just here for the taxation

Been thinking about what happens to those who serve us wrong
The officer who chose to rob a mother of her son
And a tower stands in ashes, no one's held accountable
Justice is something that is not universal

As the crowds grow restless
And express their distrust
I'm wide, wide, wide, wide awake

When the crowds grow restless
And express their distrust
I'm wide, wide, wide, wide awake

To tell the next scene
These robots all know I'm a mutant
Yeah sentinels can smell the X-Gene
Use your powers, come join the team (X-Men)
'Cos all those who wanna reign supreme
Never really seem to wanna take the blame supreme
Or feel the pain too deep
We get left in the rain you see
New day but it all feels the same to me (Same, same)
And now you wanna make your country hate again?
Please teach these cunts to be afraid again
I said away with them
And as the crowds grow restless I'm wide awake with them
And if you ain't insane or dead
You better engage your brain and get
Wise to their tactics
Ignite your mind like a matchstick
And start a blaze on 'em

As the crowds grow restless
And express their distrust
I'm wide, wide, wide, wide awake

When the crowds grow restless (Oh don't you hear them?)
And express their distrust (Oh)
I'm wide, wide, wide, wide awake (Is that what they say?)
(So wide awake oh my, hey!)

I said they're plotting, they're judging
They're talking, watching with them eyes wide shut
Every lyrics, every syllable mi write up
Thankful for the light when shine and make me sight up
Things that were not right, in spite, are feeling nice
Oh my
I've enjoyed my days
I got some real ones side of me
From you have life you can find a way
Look how mi rich now finally
What am I to say? I'm wide awake
Somewhere hide away on the lowkey side of the island
Who them a hype on? Man just a drive on the road
Mi ah keeping mi eye 'pon plan

As the crowds grow restless

When the crowds grow restless
And express their distrust
I'm wide, wide, wide, wide awake

As the crowds grow restless (Ok)
And express their distrust (Bang bang!)
I'm wide, wide, wide, wide awake

When the crowds grow restless
And express their distrust
I'm wide, wide, wide, wide awake

  33. Conor Mitchell

    Brilliant song, not many bands who sing about politics in music unlike the clash, the specials, ub40, etc so its nice to hear it, much needed :))

    vaping Otter

    Lol ub40? 😂😂🤣🤣 you mean everyone's moms favorite reggae band cuz they are safe? Lol ub40 🤣🤣😂😂😂


    Yeah the #grenfell shout in on this track was decent and reminiscent of a time when UB40 were singing about food for thought and being one in 10. Their name is taken off a an unemployment form serial number.

    The song is great! I feel like it's underplayed and that they haven't got the exposure they need. This song is a fitting soundtrack for the political scene at the moment.

  34. Manu Rasta

    Genial... ya era hora LPM!

    suitably fat bass line... He may not sing but Jon got the groove... love it.
