Practise What You Preach

from by One Eight Seven



I aint got no reason, sure as hell aint got the time
I won't get no satisfaction from pumping you full of lies
Yeah I don’t give a fuck, so I'll tell it like it is
I know I can get a bit much but I'll never change a thing

Putting in the time, walking to the beat
Putting into practice the words I preach
Laying down the truth, sifting out the weak
Holding up the faith, cleaning up the streets

I'll tell you straight, I'll speak my mind
Ya may think I'm rude, But baby, the truth aint kind
I don't paint no pretty pictures, I don't aim to please
And if you can't fucking take it then you're better off deceased
