One time, one time

Verse 1: Skepta
I knew what it was to be black way before I was on the GQ cover
How many gonna question me about color?
Whatchu know about Nelson Mandela?
Man, I get anti as ever
Yeah, I can do serious, I can do mean
Tell the supremacists that I am supreme
Oh, everyone’s woke know, guess I’m just lost in a dream
But still, I’m predicting the future
I said this is how shit would go
The streets at an all-time high, the government at an all-time low
Politicians tryna get tickets to come to shows
I shake hands with a long arm, never get close
Can’t see me, I stay ghost
Man, I move like cigarette smoke

We’ve be growin’ apart
Been through the wars and I can show you the scars
Still on the road, I’m still on the boulevard
They shoulda told you that I glow in the dark
We’ve be growin’ apart
Been through the wars and I can show you the scars
Still on the road, I’m still on the boulevard
They shoulda told you that I glow in the dark
Oh yeah

They would love to see me on a pushbike pedalin’ scores
18 pound 40, I was acceptin’ shorts
Fast forward, see me on TV collectin’ awards
One night with the gang
Now she can’t understand why she used to hang around with them idiot man
I Nintendo Switch it, fam, I got the game in my hands
I’m a different species
Summertime got a new swag for the beaches
Look in my wardrobe and it’s all reference pieces
You should see how the price goes up when the money increases
I don’t chill with them ’cause I can’t deal with the disheartenin’ speeches
When I say I’m out, then I mean it, hm

We’ve be growin’ apart
Been through the wars and I can show you the scars
Still on the road, I’m still on the boulevard
They shoulda told you that I glow in the dark
We’ve be growin’ apart
Been through the wars and I can show you the scars
Still on the road, I’m still on the boulevard
They shoulda told you that I glow in the dark
Oh yeah

I can be my own worst enemy
But I gotta be my own best friend
I need take the advice I been givin’ to them
Man, they own a low frequency
I can’t see them again
I’m on a high vibration
Feeling blessed, grateful
That man is thirsty, need hydration
Please don’t compare me to them, that’s a big violation
Man, I got no direction and it’s showin’
See how the game can trick you without you even knowin’
We’re livin’ in the dark but I keep on glowin’
My mom gave me the seeds I’m sowin’
My dad gave me the tools and the water to keep them growin’
So when they tell us to go home, fam, no way I’m goin’

We’ve be growin’ apart
Been through the wars and I can show you the scars
Still on the road, I’m still on the boulevard
They shoulda told you that I glow in the dark
We’ve be growin’ apart
Been through the wars and I can show you the scars
Still on the road, I’m still on the boulevard
They shoulda told you that I glow in the dark
Oh yeah
