Slowthai I Know Nothing

Slowthai I Know Nothing

 

slowthai drops a new song as part of the latest Beats By Dre campaign. “i know nothing” is a gritty, muddy banger that finds slowthai’s rambunctious delivery highlighted with heavy, rock-infused production. On the UK artist’s latest record, he goes head-first into detailing many of the ills of society and the blame that’s placed on the backs on the younger generation. “I know nothing, I just keep getting older,” he repeats in a spoken word delivery over glitchy production.

“‘I Know Nothing’ is a fight back against those people who are so quick to put the blame on the younger generation. In a world full of misinformation and judgement it only reveals the true intentions of how miserable people’s lives must be as they are so quick to jump on the bandwagon and applaud or point out people’s failures or vulnerabilities,” he says of the song.

“Instead we should be lifting people up when we see them fall,” he continued. “Social media can and should be used as a tool for connection and good but instead it serves to gloat and punch down. It fails to show the harsh reality we live in, which can lead to isolation and depression. Let’s lift each other up.”

Lyrics

[Intro]
I know nothing
I keep getting older

[Verse]
My whole generation misguided, we are one and the same
It cuts me deep
I pray understanding that I won’t be heard
I’m in line like everyone else, there’s no exception
I lay still with my legs shaking out of anxiety
Some people ain’t comfortable with their sexuality
It must be awful to wake up and live a lie
Society tells us we need money, we need a mortgage
We fall into what’s expected instead of what we want
Greed fuels the hungry and no one gives a fuck
We rely on a system that’s failed us
We’re in prison waiting for a day off
Social media distorts our perception of reality
‘Cause everyone seems happy, in fact, they’re miserable
And that’s why they need gratification from strangers

[Pre-Chorus]
Sometimes, I look in the mirror and reflect on what I used to be
Before the people I loved started using me

[Chorus]
I know nothing, I’m just getting older
I know nothing, I’m just getting older
I know nothing, I’m just getting older (I know nothing)
I know nothing, I’m just getting older (Getting older)
I know nothing, I’m just getting older

[Verse]
My whole generation misguided, we are one and the same
It cuts me deep
I pray understanding that I won’t be heard
I’m in line like everyone else, there’s no exception
I lay still with my legs shaking out of anxiety
Some people ain’t comfortable with their sexuality
It must be awful to wake up and live a lie
Society tells us we need money, we need a mortgage
We fall into what’s expected instead of what we want
Greed fuels the hungry and no one gives a fuck

[Pre-Chorus]
Sometimes, I look in the mirror and reflect on who I used to be
Before the people I loved started using me

[Chorus]
I know nothing, I keep getting older
I know nothing, I keep getting older
I know nothing, I keep getting older (I know nothing)
I know nothing, I keep getting older
I know nothing, I keep getting old
I know nothing, I keep getting older
(I know nothing, I keep getting older)
