Thundamentals – Carpe Diem Lyrics

[Intro: [?]]
[?] haha, yeah
Yeah yeah
I don’t know why all these people want to wait their life away
There ain’t no time for fooling around
Grab life by the horns, ha ha ha

[Chorus (Extended): Jeswon & Tuka]
Seize the day
Seize the day
Seize the day
Seize the day
Seize the day
Seize the day
Seize the day
Seize the day (grab that [?] horns)

[Scratches: DJ Morgs AND/OR Tommy Fiasko]

[Verse 1: Tuka]
Born ravenous, broke like poor scavengers
The maverick, living off dope and raw cabbages
Catalyst armed with a pen and a page
Tryna generate change by the end of the day
[?] keep it tight like when I speak into the mic
If I get lucky you might see me leaving with your wife
Nah, I’m joking, don’t stress, bro
I wouldn’t do that, well, unless you said so
Let’s go, maybe taking it down
But right now I’m on stage laying it down
Making a vow to the people who relate to the sound
Real recognize real, there’s no faking allowed
Instead of playing it out I could get in [?]
My sole purpose is taking control and breaking the mould
Reshaping the art—asking what’s happening next?
As the hair stands up on the back of your necks

[Verse 2: Jeswon]
I got no need for sorrow or to rest on my laurels
And I won’t seek solace at the bottom of a bottle
Jes will never grovel for a piece of the pie

‘Stead I’ll make my own cake, now I’m eating a slice
The reason I write is precisely to free my brain
It’s like Carpe Diem, so I seize the day
Till I reach the place where dead poets await
I make tracks, if they’re whack then I throw ’em away
Start from scratch, most MC’s hardly rap
They can’t adapt or see past party tracks
So now I’m asking, “What type of art is that?”
We’re tryna keep it more realer than a heart attack
Cardiac arrest who? Pretenders who stress me out
Talk shit then you best be out
Check me out, I’m here to kick rhymes with mates
Right away, there ain’t no time to waste

[Bridge: Jeswon & Tuka]
When things are not what they seem
Artful dodgers are on the scene
Bob and weave till we can’t be seen
Until the gang’s at your gate screaming “Carpe Diem”
When things are not what they seem
Artful dodgers are on the scene
Bob and weave till we can’t be seen
Until the gang’s at your gate screaming “Carpe Diem”

[Chorus: Jeswon & Tuka]
Seize the day
Seize the day
Seize the day
Seize the day

[Scratches: DJ Morgs AND/OR Tommy Fiasko]
“Don’t play”
“Check it out”
“Check it—Check it out”
“Yeah, yeah, yeah, seize the day”
“Don’t play”
“Check it out”
“Check it—Check it out”
“Listen”
“Listen”
“Listen”
“Listen”
