1000 Words lyrics - Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip

They say a pictures worth a thousand words
So with these thousand words
I'll paint a picture in your mind that breaks the rule of thirds

Let's go right back to the start
What better way to begin
Before too much of the corruption, the temptation and sin.
Before the gloss was taken off, back to sand castles and grins.
Before the world we were living in became riddled with Ritalin
I had a very normal birth, no wise men did attend
Born into my family as son, brother and friend
I had a normal start to life with a very normal infancy
And over the years many events did influence me
But there's one that stands out now with a special place in my mind
And the more times I think back the more new memories I find
When I was four years old, out in France, I almost died.

A wave swept up to the shore and took me back for the ride.
And in that moment of fear I gazed below normal tide
That's when the depths of the ocean showed what was really inside.
I saw a man sat just below the surface on a rock.
And his wisdom filled gaze withdrew all panic and shock
And unlocked an inner calm that let me float down to his depths
Without any flailing shaking arms or panic filled breaths.
I swear we sat for hours before words were introduced.
Just relaxing in a world, below the fights and abuse.
Below the weapons of war, below the cars and the ships.
And then when he felt I understood he slowly parted his lips

"The pen is far mightier than the sword", he said,
As he stabbed his pen in my leg and the ink mixed with the red.
"With this action I inject the gift of knowledge instead
Of all the other cluttered thoughts that will clog up your head
But if at any point you take the spoken word just for granted
These words will stick in your mouth and fall out broken and parted"

It didn't hurt for some reason but I could feel a change inside
But I hadn't really understood what his words had implied
I thought id wait for his next words with my mind open wide
And with the guidelines that he gave me I would try to abide
Again much time passed with silence being the topic
But the serenity was such bliss I had no words that could stop it
Then after what seemed like a lifetime had passed
He stopped and looked right through me like I was made up of glass
And at that very moment I was grabbed from this landscape
As I left this wise old figure I quickly prompted a handshake
And I was carried back to shore, my life saved by my own dad
With no memory at the time of the experience I'd had.

And so I went on with my life these things locked up in my brain
I grew up no different from the rest, everything just stayed the same
Until one day I realized sometimes my own speech was erratic
Like the needle on my record would get all caught up and static
And at school, this affliction didn't make things too easy
An easy target so the kids would sometimes laugh at and tease me
I guess there's no denying this made me stand out from the rest
But that kind of thing has never fazed me. I just took it in jest
Sure the broken stammers of a youth can kind of bring some attention
But the sympathy of a teacher can get you out of detention
And this continued, until I reached a certain age
Until I started to thrive for knowledge from every word and every page
All of a sudden, the words would just flow off of my tongue
When I got bored of how one sounded I'd just learn a new one
I started listening to all these people who showed great use of each word

Feeling the buzz with every single line from Gil that I heard
The way he manipulated the language and really made it develop
As he told another story from 125th Street and Lenox
And Mr. Mojo Risin', the American poet
Had enraptured my mind with words and would never know it
I would sit in my room for hours just listening out
For every underlying meaning in the words he would shout
Then I'd put on The Specials to hear of their social commentary
You couldn't help but get drawn in, sometimes even involuntary
And the way that Rakim would take my mind on a journey
To a kind of lifestyle and scene that never used to concern me
A completely different world to the one that I lived in
But I could connected to the language and the passion within him
So I started to write, inspired by those here before me
Id found an outlet for thoughts a way of telling a story
So I wrote and I wrote until I felt it was time

To put some of this stuff on tape and then I started to rhyme
Once I started climbing I knew there was no way I could slip
And that was the one true birth of this here Scroobius Pip
The one with the leather ties and weathered eyes
Who's 37 clever lines left 37 severed minds
The one that speaks but never lies
And sometimes fails but always tries
And the more he writes the more he finds
It pays to bleed between the lines.

They say a pictures worth a thousand words
So with these thousand words
I'll paint a picture in your mind that breaks the rule of thirds

They say a pictures worth a thousand words
So with these thousand words
I'll paint you one big picture in your mind that breaks the rule of thirds

Beat That My Heart Skipped lyrics - Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip

Well the beat that my heart skipped sounded like this:

Bom bom bom bad-i-ba bad-i-bad-i-ba bom ba-o-a-o
Bom bom bom bad-i-ba bad-i-bad-i-ba bom ba-bom-bom-bom

Every now and then I cower and I need to find empowerment
Empowerment is paramount to how I can begin to mount
A plan that I can implement
To make a dent on ignorance
Instead of drunk belligerence
And the dissidence of miscreants

Especially in this instance
Never ending persistence
To use the words in each sentence
As if they were blunt instruments
To beat a hole in their defence
Of this beauty and her innocence
Which serves to build resistance
In spite of all my good intents.

The beat that my heart skipped
This is the beat that my heart skipped
This is the beat that my heart skipped

This is the beat that my heart skipped when we first met
Now that I've heard it, it leaves me with a kind of regret
No disrespect
But we just left a lot of people upset
What we had wasn't really what we'd come to expect

This is the beat that my heart skipped when we first met
Now that I've heard it, it leaves me with a kind of regret
No disrespect
But we just left a lot of people upset
What we had wasn't really what we'd come to expect

Well "good god damn" and other such phrases
I haven't heard a beat like this in ages
To miss such a beat would have been outrageous
When your heart skips a beat it's ruthless and aimless

Bom bom bom bad-i-ba bad-i-bad-i-ba bom ba-o-a-o
Bom bom bom bad-i-ba bad-i-bad-i-ba bom ba-bom-bom-bom

She caught my attention in her fishnets
And then she reeled me in expecting nothing more than kissed necks and quick sex
But that weren't the case with this platinum princess
She'd attracted my interest
So I wanted to impress
Upon her all the positive things
That come from having more than just a one night fling
But that's something easier in theory than in practice
Since pick up lines are tactics
To get prey to the mattress

And this actress
Is practiced
In shunning such theatrics
When put upon daily by tactless geriatrics
So my genuine advances are met with po-faced scepticism
Throwing compliments but she just straight elects to miss them
Her lips were put on this earth for dispersing wisdom
God forbid I suggest she lets me kiss them

But I really want to know what she thinks of me
Because I'm loving every idiosyncrasy

But I ain't one to jump through hoops to make the first impression
Been there, done that, learnt the worst of lessons
We want to be loved for who we appear to be instead of who we are
Our real selves take a back seat behind the pomp and the fa├žade
That's as true of the rude boys, downing pints and acting hard
As of the kids shunning convention with clinical disregard

This is the beat that my heart skipped

And it went...

Bom bom bom bad-i-ba bad-i-bad-i-ba bom ba-o-a-o
Bom bom bom bad-i-ba bad-i-bad-i-ba bom ba-bom-bom-bom

([Background:] Bom bom bom bad-i-ba bad-i-bad-i-ba bom ba-o-a-o)

Love Like This lyrics - Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip

Years-years-years ago my mother used to say to me.
'In this world Elwood' she- she always called me Elwood.
'In this world Elwood, you must be oh so smart, or oh so pleasant.'
Well for years I was smart; I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.

If I'd known there was love like this I'd-a grabbed a fucking scalpel I'd-a slit my wrists in the goddamn delivery room
Hell I'd-a jumped back in the womb
love be the shit that's gonna seal my doom.

jj-jj-jj- just cause you made our bed doesn't mean you had to lie in it
look me in the eye sayin together till we die and shit
well feel my fuckin pulse cause I ain't fucking dead yet
listen close does it echo through your headset?
when we first met, I didn't know what I was doing
and I guess yo were sick of that girl's boyfriend you were screwing
instead of thinking in my head were you worth perusing
I shoulda looked into your eyes and seen a storm was brewing
but you needed a new angle so you intercepted my life line
I must admit you were looking good so i granted you my time
behind every acute angle you find an obtuse one
as a hand caressed my thigh over my head a fresh noose hung
but this one I thought maybe I could trust her
we'd grown close over time I though maybe I'd sussed her
I threw my heart shaped anchor with all the strength i could muster
it fell short and ripped up the hard seabed up in clusters
but that didn't phase me, I just kept on going
with my chest ripped open and my heart still showing
i was naive like that, see my mind was still groing
I thought with trust and persistence that the love would start flowing
but it didn't so I pushed and pushed to invoke
new levels of love but instead we just broke
at that point you chose to let me in
and that's where all the problems began to begin

[x2] If I'd known there was love like this I'd-a grabbed a fucking scalpel I'd-a slit my wrists in the goddamn delivery room
Hell I'd-a jumped back in the womb
love be the shit that's gonna seal my doom. [x2]

now just suppose I was to juxtapose my soft right cheek against your nose
would you look me in the eyes and fall in love like the T.V. shows?
or maybe if I took a rose with an envelope with a note enclosed
that said our love inside me like a flower grows
would it really make any fucking difference? cause it shouldn't
would you sell yourself for one cheap gesture?
cause I couldn't and I wouldn't
I know that's all it'd take to win you back
but I ain't looking to soil my shoes on such a well trodden track
so you can take your love by numbers and put it up on the rack
just impose your shit and baggage on some other mindless hack
now just suppose I was to juxtapose my tightened fist against your nose
releasing blood with color deeper than the deepest rose
releasing streams of anger that we all have yet no one shows
release me from the fucking chains of heartbreak that you sill impose
and that'd be wrong and I ain't gonna do it
but there ain't no harm in putting this plot in my mind and walking through it
so fuck you for still spending time with my friends
and fuck them for not knowing what's appropriate and when
and it's fuck up that all the good times seem to blend
into one big fucking mess from the beginning to the end
so take a good look at my face
and you'll see that this little smile seems outta place
now go ahead and look closer but I'll never let you trace
the tracks of my tears

[x3] If I'd known there was love like this I'd-a grabbed a fucking scalpel I'd-a slit my wrists in the goddamn delivery room
Hell I'd-a jumped back in the womb
love be the shit that's gonna seal my doom. [x3]

Reprise lyrics - Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip

This is my reprise
This is my reprise

Round here James Dean reigns supreme and we don't give a (gasp) about your scene
Round here James Dean reigns supreme and we don't give a (gasp) about your scene
Round here James Dean reigns supreme and we don't give a (gasp) (gasp)

If I cannot find a scene then I'll just make one
For every bridge that I repair I'll probably break one
But I decided long ago to let things out and not implode
So if you want to take a swing at me than take one

This last little track is less for you and more for me
A little exercise in expression and muscial therapy
See even if the glass is empty there's still residue inside
And that can taste as sweat as the residue that did once reside

The two people I miss most in my life begin with J
There's one that will probably think it's her but in all honesty it ain't
One will know it's him wherever he is today
And one will probably never know and I'll probably never say

You see sometimes emotion can feel just like a straight jacket
But if you still got legs running up the race track it's ok
Because every new emotion teachs something
And make sure every muscle in your heart keeps pumping

I mean take love, the most marketable emotion we possess
Finding love is at the ned of every quest for happiness
But I suggest that maybe if we loo through all that mess
We'll see the strength of the emotions that don't get such good press

For example anger, the thing that makes us fight
But that's just the case if the anger isn't being harnessed right
See anger just like love can cause a storm of motivation
If channeled right and not just seeping through in aggrevation

So many works for art, and literature through out the ages
Have stemmed from the dark hearts of those enbracing their rages
So then regret, I hate to say but it's a pointless one
If there's one thing you can't change, it's the things you've done
And the same goes for grief, in this life most things will come and go
You've just got to keep on learning, and enjoy the show

So, as I finally walk away I say goodbye and good health
As I finally walk away I wish you all you wish yourself

As I finally walk away I say goodbye and good health
As I finally walk away I wish you all you wish yourself

Round here James Dean reigns supreme and we don't give a (gasp) about your scene
Round here James Dean reigns supreme and we don't give a (gasp) about your scene
Round here James Dean reigns supreme and we don't give a (gasp) about your scene
Round here James Dean reigns supreme and we don't give a (gasp) about your scene

Round here, Round here, Round here, here, here, here, Round here, here here here...
