"Two Fingers" as written by Iain Denis Archer and Jake Kennedy....
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

    Song Meaningits about how he overcame his troubled childhood where his mother was in an abusive relationship, he got into some trouble with the police and possibly suffered from depression and other mental problems. the enthisis is, however on the fact that he "got out" and "something is changing" hence the repetition of these quotes in the song.

    My InterpretationYou're young, you make mistakes, you stuff up. And so his way of dealing with it, is sticking your two fingers up to yesterday, forgetting about it and smoking and then moving on.
