"I Be The Prophet" as written by and Adrian Nicholas Matthew Thaws....
I can't relax I need to meditate.
Yeah, I'll make 'em wait.
Yeah, I'll make 'em wait.
Time moves in numbers,
I count the summers, direct the drummers.
Tell me you don't feel nothing,
Would you like to ride on my train, or
Would you like to drink from my vein?
My vibe's just a (fuckin') feeling.
I see the ceiling.
And adjust to such a feeling.
I be the prophet, slay me then we'll cross it.

I'm already on the other side

    General CommentIt would seem to me that Tricky is feeling futile; time is carrying on and one days his numbers up (direct the drummers= inevitability?), he's being used- the ride my train/ drink my vein bit is meaningless sex possibly- hes unfocused on his life perhaps- he cant relax, needs to meditate/ focus/ get things in perspective. Having martina echo the same lyrics perhaps insinuates his girlfriend(s)/ meaningless sex partners are in the same emotional rut. Already on the other side- hes not living his life, he might as well be dead.
