"Liiines" as written by and Obaro Ejimiwe....
I keep on scribbling
In the spare room I'm living in
?(But these ?? I'm living in)?
Why do I keep wasting time

I keep on writing, writing
But them folk aint biting, biting
Maybe the bait aint juicy enough
So I'm switching, chucking spice in
Add some flavour, ???, silly rhymes and three-time beats, yeah

But that aint me - nah, nah, nah
It just aint me
?(So like me, alight me
These are the words of this be true)?
Sending them out with love and faithfully,
Hopefully, there'll be something to be caught

Life is too short to store our grudges
Life is too long to make no plans
I'm counting up time that I aint using (1,2,3,4...)
I need a good use for all these lines, and lines, and lines, and lines...

(Repeat all)

    General Commenthere are the correct lyrics:

    I keep on scribbling
    In the spare room I'm living in
    Body's here but I'm never in
    Why do I keep wasting time

    I keep on writing, writing
    But them folk aint biting, biting
    Maybe the bait aint juicy enough
    So I'm switching, chucking spice in
    Add some flavour, up the heat, silly rhymes and three-time beats, yeah

    But that aint me, nah, nah, nah
    It just aint me
    So like me or lie to me
    These are the words that just be true
    Sending them out with love and faithfully,
    Hopefully, they'll mean something to me cause

    Life is too short to store our grudges
    Life is too long to make no plans
    I'm counting up time that I aint using (1,2,3,4...)
    I need a good use for all these lines, and lines, and lines, and lines...


    Basically Ghostpoet is saying that he's been working away trying to write lyrics but he's had to keep on working at it as popularity didn't come at first... I.e. them folks aint biting

    So in order to appeal more he thinks about making the tracks and lyrics juicier, but then realises that's not him, and he just needs to be true.

    Definitely the feeling of lot's of time passing, Ghostpoet trying and working hard, and writing lot's and lot's of lines.. "I'm counting up time that I aint using, I need a good use for all these lines".

    This is a really great track, glad we have yet another original rap style. Reminds me of when roots manuva came along
