  • Everythin' must go
    Everythin' must go
    Everythin' must go
    No squares in the circle
    Everything must roll
    What's the plan when the smoke clears
    An' it all takes its toll?
    I don't know

    Uh
    Futurist
    Ludicrous
    Like the news except my views are true and I cut through the mist
    Scrupulous
    I'll dismiss if you persist
    Deep down I'm a youthanist
    Still ruthless
    Bitter sweet
    Neutralist
    Not new to this
    I can see the world dwindlin'
    Got my spider sense tinglin'
    I'm just out here minglin'
    All I see is politicians runnin' round tryna keep their pockets jinglin'
    Sounds like I'm singlin'
    Can't forget about the back scamps and the swindlin'
    No point in lingerin'
    Everybody's gotta eat
    Somebody's gonna cheat
    Out here on a tightrope tryna stand on their two feet
    Kids are tryna be street
    It's peak
    Get swept off of their feet before them condos are complete
    Yeah it's deep

    Everythin' must go
    No squares in the circle
    Everything must roll
    Rollin' up that crow
    It's gettin' out of control
    What's the plan when the smoke clears
    An' it all takes its toll?
    I don't know

    Everythin' must go
    Everythin' must go
    Everythin' must go
    No squares in the circle
    Everything must roll
    What's the plan when the smoke clears
    An' it all takes its toll?
    I don't know

    Uh
    Bottle poppers and socialites
    Gassed up and over-hyped
    No oversight
    Really puttin' on a show tonight
    Not me
    I'm overtight
    Girl told me I'm miserable
    She said why you gotta over analyse
    Why can't you just let lose and have fun like them other guys?
    Jumpin' round like orangutans on the table
    With their sparklers
    And their champagne all publicised
    Why you always gotta sumarise
    Why can't you just live life in the moment?
    And act like this glamour life ain't just a bunch o lies?
    But I'm wide awake I can't fake no more
    Wide awake I can't take no more
    It was fun while it lasted
    But it's the kind of shit I can't rate no more
    Kind of shit you get carried away and start movin' lose
    And get posted up on your Instagram and fans hate you for
    'Cause the excess just vexes
    The world's more complex than being first name on the guest list
    Or sexist, being reckless with a dancer in Texas
    Named Lexus I'm restless
    Textin' all my exes like

    Everythin' must go
    Everythin' must go
    Everythin' must go
    No squares in the circle
    Everything must roll
    What's the plan when the smoke clears
    An' it all takes its toll?
    I don't know

    The last thing we want to have in our city is a situation like a-such as Paris
    Where erm the less well off are pushed to the suburb, that is not going to happen in London
    I will emphatically resist any attempt er to-to-to recreate a London
    In which the rich and poor can't live together Writer/s: Dylan Mills
