Two Fingers

  • I drink to remember, I smoke to forget
    Some things to be proud of, some stuff to regret
    Been down some dark alleys in my own head
    Something is changing, changing, changing

    I go back to Clifton to see my old friends
    The best people I could ever have met
    Skin up a fat one, hide from the Feds
    Something is changing, changing, changing

    So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain
    Light a cigarette and wish the world away
    I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay
    So I hold two fingers up to yesterday
    Light a cigarette and smoke it all away
    I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay

    Down in the kitchen, drinking white lightning
    He's with my momma, yelling and fighting
    It's not the first time praying for silence
    Something is changing, changing, changing

    So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain
    Light a cigarette and wish the world away
    I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay
    So I hold two fingers up to yesterday
    Light a cigarette and smoke it all away
    I got out, I got out, I'm alive and I'm here to stay

    There's a story for every corner of this place
    Running so hard you got out but your knees got grazed
    I'm an old dog but I learned some new tricks yeah

    So I kiss goodbye to every little ounce of pain
    Light a cigarette and wish the world away
    I got out I got out I'm alive and I'm here to stay
    So I hold two fingers up to yesterday
    Light a cigarette and smoke it all away
    I got out I got out I'm alive and I'm here to stay

    Hey, hey it's fine
    Hey, hey it's fine
    Hey, hey it's fine
    I left it behind Writer/s: Iain Denis Archer, Jake Kennedy
