Mali anti-gov’t rally turns violent as national TV goes off air

    A large anti-government demonstration in Mali has descended into chaos as protesters tried to occupy buildings including the national assembly, the national broadcasting house and two major bridges, while police fired tear gas to disperse them.

    The protest against President Ibrahim Boubacar Keita, organised by an opposition coalition, is the third such demonstration in two months – significantly escalating pressure on the embattled leader.

    Thousands initially gathered in a square in the capital, Bamako, on Friday to demand Keita resigns over the country’s long-running security issues, economic woes and perceived government corruption.

    Led by influential scholar Mahmoud Dicko, the so-called June 5 movement is channelling deep-seated frustrations in the war-torn West African state

    Keita this week unsuccessfully floated political reforms in a bid to appease opponents, but did not concede to demands from the political opposition to dissolve the parliament and form a transition government.

    Civil disobedience

    Leaders of the protest had called on supporters to occupy buildings including the prime minister’s office and other locations at the start of a civil disobedience campaign aimed at forcing Keita to resign.

    Mali’s national television ORTM went off air on Friday after hundreds of protesters entered the broadcaster’s building in the capital.

    A journalist inside the ORTM building told Reuters news agency by telephone that she was preparing her newscast when protesters stormed the building and that people were asked to barricade themselves in their offices.

    A few kilometres away, other protesters pelted the national assembly with rocks, shattering its glass facade.

    Al Jazeera’s Nicolas Hague, reporting from neighbouring Senegal, said Mali police tried to disperse the crowd by firing tear gas as they attempted to force protesters out of the ORTM building.

    “The situation has turned from bad to worse,” he said.

    “What we are saying right now is that the protesters have taken over the main areas of the capital with police trying to fire tear gas to disperse the crowd that is defying. They have taken control of the two main bridges of the capital and have cut off the national television channel,” he said.

    “Their grievances range from teachers not being paid for months to people that are being displaced because of the ongoing violence in Mali, and other accusing the government and the President himself of using the state coffers for their personal gain.”

    ‘Enough is enough’

    Thousands of protesters had earlier filled the city’s Independence Square, chanting and waving banners with slogans including: “Enough is Enough” and “IBK, clear off”, referring to the president.

    The impasse is a growing concern for Mali’s neighbours and outside powers, who worry it could further destabilise the country and jeopardise a joint military campaign against armed groups in the West African Sahel region.

    Mali protesters slam gov’t over growing conflict, violence (2:18)

    Dicko told France24 television the opposition coalition had dropped the demand for the president to resign but want further gestures from him.

    “This is because we think it (the resignation) will cause more problems than it will resolve,” Dicko said.

    “Mali’s problem is not about a government of national unity. It is a problem of governance.”

    However, some protesters are still calling on the president to step down.

    Keita was re-elected in 2018 for a second five-year term, but his leadership has faced mounting opposition amid a surge in armed violence and an economic crisis.

    [Verse 1]
    You’ve been on and on again
    And this time, I’m not listening
    It’s been minutes since we’ve spoken last
    Already talking to my friends
    You can’t admit it that you lied, that I lied
    Yeah, I’ve been upset, but I’ve tried, tried, I have tried
    But boys don’t cry

    [Verse 2]
    You’ve been writing novels
    I’m the inbox to your problems every weekday
    We don’t talk much in real life
    We fake fight and that’s all we do, do
    But if it’s over, then it’s over
    Doesn’t have to be a TV drama
    If it’s over, then it’s over

    [Verse 3]
    You’ve been off and on again
    I’ve always been your therapist
    And you can’t say anymore, oh yeah
    You’ve lost the right to be my friend
    I know you’re drinking every night, night, night, night
    Yeah I’ve been upset, but I’ve tried, tried, I have tried, oh

    [Chorus]
    But if it’s over, then it’s over
    Doesn’t have to be a teenage drama
    If it’s over, then it’s over
    If it’s over, then it’s over
    Doesn’t have to be a TV drama
    If it’s over, then it’s over
    But boys don’t cry
    No, boys don’t

    [Outro]
    If it’s over, then it’s over
    You don’t have to go and make this harder
    If it’s over, then it’s over

    [Verse 1]
    I’m like a well-oiled, money-making lyric machine
    It’s only beautiful things in life I quietly see
    I admire the things that life silently brings
    With little effort on my part, I acquired the means
    Ain’t grow tired of blades, so watch how you come up to me
    I yellow tape you then hastefully say there’s nothing to see
    Do enough for the rain
    Had up to here with the sleet
    The game without me’s like the me without the ambition in me
    The world itchin’ to see what SESH gon’ do next
    It’s like a mission to me to be a stress-free mess
    No one’s speaking to me
    I’ve been turned on to many times
    Like, what you see on the TV
    Too many lies being told to my face
    Like I’ve been shipped down a dead end
    And this rapping [?] a waste
    But I escaped, just by the skin of my teeth
    Still got the heart of a peasant
    I got the music of king
    What?
    SESH

    [Chorus]
    Blind shades, brighter days, you know what you mean to me
    Darker hues, I feel used
    I don’t know what you see in me
    I thought I told you that we won’t stop
    I thought I told you that we won’t stop
    I thought I told you that we won’t stop
    I thought I told you that we won’t stop

    [Verse 2]
    The syllable killer, the illest of villains
    I’m banana clip peelin’, if you tryna get near me
    I got the MP with me and the Desert Eagle near me
    Even if you found me sleeping
    One sound and I’m up tweaking
    I’m shooting at the wall, hoping that you fall
    Screaming nothing at all, and hooping at the park
    Like it’s just light work, but I’m ’bout to make it dark
    It’s imminent when I spark, bullseye every target
    You better plan on ending it, if you plan to start shit
    I’m shooting up to Mars in the death star ship
    I take it to different lengths, I bless and I pocket tanks
    I’m good like no thanks, I brought my own things
    Resources by the vault, I purchase no matter costs
    I can say a whole lot without even having to talk

    [Chorus]
    Blind shades, brighter days, you know what you mean to me
    Darker hues, I feel used
    I don’t know what you see in me
    I thought I told you that we won’t stop
    I thought I told you that we won’t stop
    I thought I told you that we won’t stop
    I thought I told you that we won’t stop

    Ayy, uh
    I’m puttin’ numbers on the board and blowin’ more digits
    I haven’t started, man, these are just the before pictures
    Shout out my parents, my mother gave birth to four winners
    All of the players in the game, it’s always cold benches
    Been in the studio, I forgot how to sleep
    Not tryna make an album they forget ’bout in a week
    They said the fruit never gon’ fall far from the tree
    I used to be the kid, now the kids wanna be me
    Trippin’ ’bout my future like way before there was cameras
    Hella plans on my calendar ‘fore I went all professional
    Less souls to trust, man, these people makin’ me cynical
    More copycats and less people soundin’ original
    Same destination, we just took different routes
    Fuck bein’ one the greatest, I’m tryna be the greatest one
    I ain’t sayin’ I ain’t grateful for everything I’ve become
    But the throne is more comfortable than this chair I’m sittin’ on
    My name is Brian, cold bars is what I’m known for
    If my vision is scarin’ me, then I don’t go for it
    ‘Member my first days here when it was all foreign
    Now I’m on TV with James Corden, that shit was crazy
    Just got a place with a backyard, I feel amazing
    Nothin’ can get between me and the dreams I’m chasin’
    Ain’t got the time for partyin’, no more gettin’ wasted
    Unless you got the 1942, man, then get the chaser
    You hatin’ on me, but you know I gotta
    You big in your city, I’m the king of a continent
    These rappers tryna make the trendin’ topic
    Why the state of music goin’ south?
    But I don’t even want to talk about it
    Let’s talk about it, nah, let’s talk about it
    Before all these folks decide it’s cool to give a fuck about it
    Everyone’s tryna make hits, I’m just tryna make music
    You know, the kind that makes you feel when you listen to it?
    I’m the youngest child, I don’t need more attention
    You writin’ some bullshit, I write the lyrics meant for the captions
    I’m makin’ songs that’ll probably outlive us for generations
    Started off as the sailor, look at me, now I’m the captain
    I won’t lie, this shit is fun
    Tell these Asian kids they could do what they want
    Might steal the mic at the GRAMMYs just to say we won
    That everyone can make it, don’t matter where you from

    [Bridge]
    Can’t forget about the day that Sean called me
    Talkin’ ’bout a vision called 88 that he’s dreamin’
    Man, I love him like a brother, if we fall, we gon’ recover
    Just a man with a vision who mastered in causin’ trouble (You can’t see)
    Man, I can’t see the finish line
    Fall back, fall back, I ain’t fuckin’ ’round this time (Anymore)
    Did God know he created a legend in ’99? (Anymore)
    Fuck pretendin’ on a track, man, I mean every single line

    [Verse 2]
    Touched down, never holdin’ back
    Shinin’ like some bustdown, sailin’ ’round without a map
    Been a underdog, now it’s time to let me quarterback
    Killin’ shit in uncharted territories, man this shit get hella gory
    Whole country of people proud, so I’m never worried
    Glad you’re sittin’ through the credits, man, this is my story
    The type of shit that make me cry when I record it
    This the type of shit that still gon’ make me cry even when I’m 40
    R.I.P. Nipsey, R.I.P. Mac
    These inspirations always gon’ motivate me to rap
    Let’s celebrate their lives and the people that they impact
    The marathon continues, ain’t no way we lookin’ back
    Amazon Prime flow, you know I’ll always deliver
    We crossed oceans for a chance just to feel somethin’ better
    Generations to sacrifice, that we’ll always remember
    It’s that circle of life shit, they hold me up like I’m Simba
    They told me I ain’t welcome, I’m here to stay, and my visa says so
    Just wait and see who’s songs they gon’ blast up in they headphones
    Come back like every couple years to destroy like tornadoes
    Victorious tropical flow comin’ straight from Indo’
    These plants only grow to just get cut and disposed
    Their spotlight is dimmin’, my future’s so bright that it glows
    You want the blueprint for impossible, I’ll let it show
    Remember when Pac said, “The concrete grows a rose”

    Man, okay, pull up to the party, put the party on a wave
    And I got the posse with me, partners and the gang
    Niggas said we playing but we do a lot of things
    Know your boy J got a seven tier race
    Diamonds too Dubai, sipping fly, same same
    Get it every time and we try same-same
    Teaspoon of vision make the pain go away
    Got a beef with a nigga, please just say it to my face

    I realized that I demonized you when I blamed my problems on you
    It was always me, I’m uncomfortable in my skin when I’m not with you

    Easy to fuck that bitch, no question
    Easy to get my dick hard
    It’s easy to get real pissed off
    It’s hard to quit my day job
    It’s easy to pop pills, get meals
    Get fucked up tucked under covers
    Never leaving my dojo where I stay solo
    Where I feel safest and I’m less anxious
    Begging for someone to save me
    ‘Cause most of the homies around me forsake me, lately
    Creepin’ on me when the sun go down, so shaded
    No surprise it don’t faze me, yuh

    I don’t know what’s wrong with this girl Charli, she crazy

    [Bridge: Lizzo]
    Gotta blame it on the, blame it on the
    Blame it on the juice (Blame it on the juice)
    Looking at my booty like you don’t know what to do
    Baby, I know that you can’t control it (Control it)
    But my body like a swisher, just roll it (Roll it)
    I’m give you one chance to fall in love

    [Verse 1]
    Turn the TV on when I lay in bed
    Try to drown the noise pounding in my head
    ‘Cause I can’t let go of the things we said

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Now when I, I’ve been talking in my sleep
    And I ain’t heard from you in weeks
    I thought I had your heart for keeps

    [Chorus]
    Please give me more anesthesia
    You left me right when I need ya
    Sometimes at night I can feel ya
    Under the knife, the blinding light
    And I need ya
    And I, and I, and I need ya
    And I, and I, and I need ya
    And I, and I, and I need ya
    And I need ya, anesthesia

    [Verse 2]
    Now it’s 2:00 AM and I’m wide awake
    And I need a fix just to numb the pain
    Never felt so sick since you went away

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Now when I, I’ve been talking in my sleep
    And I ain’t heard from you in weeks
    I thought I had your heart for keeps

    [Chorus]
    Please give me more anesthesia
    You left me right when I need ya
    Sometimes at night I can feel ya
    Under the knife, the blinding light

    [Intro]
    True story, ain’t no lyin’
    A wise man can play a fool but a fool can’t play wise
    Unless you judge me by my cover so you can’t read between my lines
    I’m a street poet, poetical genius
    God made me, believe me
    They ain’t know that I was intellectual
    Tryna change your life but they won’t let ya
    I’m in Detroit right now
    Just hollerin’ at my nigga Will

    [Verse]
    I was hollerin’ at my boy, he said he feel like he gon’ die soon
    Had to pray for him because he need it more than I do
    How can I tell my people that’s exactly the way that I feel?
    But I know that I’m blessed so I won’t give a bitch that idea
    Runnin’ from the Jakes, I was posted up with a 9 mill
    Got me jumpin’ gates, I got credit cards in my high heels
    All my niggas fake, that shit kept comin’ out like diarrhea
    Syko on my line, I’ma pick him up, he in Liberia
    Wiz, he just whipped up a brick and he ain’t put no noodles in it
    Told him I just caught me a fish, so don’t put no tuna in it
    They know that I’m baptized in blood, I let my soul sing it
    Runnin’ round wilidin’, I’m childish, I ain’t got no home training
    Talking to my lil’ boy, I promise won’t let them boys kill me
    Lookin’ at my lil’ boy like, “Father, don’t let them boys steal me”
    Nigga tried to trap me, I saw it, they say that boy slippin’
    Niggas tried to trap me, I saw it, they say that boy slippin’
    Young nigga stickin’ to the code, ’cause I don’t condone snitchin’
    I ain’t goin’ out like that rapper, I won’t do no tippin’
    Willie said my name on the TV, that boy a bold witness
    On the news he T.I.P. me, that boy got no feelings
    Suwoop put the pole on lil’ buddy, they said the Game strippin’
    Old heads ain’t hittin’ on nothin’, I say them boys kiddin’
    I want all the smoke out the stove, but I don’t even roll Phillies
    How the hell you callin’ me out when you know I don’t listen?
    How you try and put me in timeout when I ain’t Big Boy children?
    Nigga waitin’ on for me to fall off just like that boy Gillie
    Said they ride for me ’til the wheel fall off, I be like, “Oh really?”
    How you tell me what came out my mouth, you don’t even know Nipsey?
    Tiny, that bitch ugly as hell, I don’t even want Piggy
    I can’t beat you niggas at talkin’, give me a long sentence
    Know I keep the pole and I ain’t no ho, I know some Rollin 60s
    And I’m thuggin’ all on my lonely, but I keep some Zoes with me
    How the hell you cancel a nigga and I don’t even smoke tobacco?
    Mute me when I voice my opinion and I ain’t even know it mattered
    Jump right on my live and record me, everything I say be Platinum
    Special kind of nigga, they know me, they want my name slandered
    Special kind of nigga, they know me, they want my name slandered
    My head right on the swivel, I’m focused, they want my brain splattered
    How the hell you cancel a nigga and I don’t even smoke tobacco?
    Mute me when I voice my opinion and I ain’t even know it mattered

    Hozier – Be Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    When all the worst we fear lets fall its weight
    When the gyre widens on a window, wave breaks
    When St. Peter loses cool and bars the gates
    When Atlas acts a nag and makes his arms shake
    When the birds are heard again in their singin’
    Once atrocity is hoarse from voicin’ shame
    And when the earth is trembling on some new beginnin’
    With the same sweet shock of when Adam first came

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Be, be, be, be, be
    Be as you’ve always been
    Be, be, be, be, be
    Be as you’ve always been

    [Chorus 1]
    Be as you’ve always been
    Be like the love that discovered the sin
    That freed the first man, would do so again
    And, lover, be good to me
    Be that hopeful feeling when Eden was lost
    It’s been deaf to our laughter since the master was crossed
    Which side of the war will suffer that cost?
    Oh, lover, be good to me

    [Verse 2]
    When the man who gives the order
    Is born next time ’round on the boat sent back
    When the body’s starvin’ at the boarder
    Or on TV givin’ people the sack
    Love, when the sea rises to meet us
    Oh, when there’s nothin’ left for you and I to do
    Oh, when there’s nobody upstairs to receive us
    When I have no kind words left, love, for you

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Be, be, be, be, be
    Be as you’ve always been
    Be, be, be, be, be
    Be as you’ve always been

    [Chorus 2]
    Be love in its disrepute
    Scorches the hillside and salts every root
    And watches the slowin’ and starvin’ of troops
    And, lover, be good to me
    Be there and you stare as you stand
    Or be like the rose that you hold in your hand
    I will grow bold in a battered and desolate land
    Oh, lover, be good to me

    [Outro]
    Love, won’t you be
    Love, won’t you be
    Be as you’ve always been?
    Love, won’t you be
    Love, won’t you be
    Be as you’ve always been?
    Love, won’t you be
    Love, won’t you be
    Be as you’ve always been?
    Love, won’t you be
    Love, won’t you be
    Be as you’ve always been?

    Depeche Mode – Shout! Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    She was silent, trying to be
    Like the girl who acted on the TV
    Always knowing when to say
    Wishing for a moment so that they could see

    [Pre-Chorus 1]
    Staring in the night
    A picture in my room
    And I think that she knew her lines

    [Chorus]
    Break away tonight
    I wanna hold your hand
    We’ve got to get it right
    We’ve got to understand

    [Verse 2]
    Carefully watching waiting
    As I stood upon the back streets and we start to play
    I was screaming louder
    As the curtains fall between us in a twisted way

    [Pre-Chorus 1]
    Staring in the night
    A picture in my room
    And I think that she knew her lines

    [Chorus]
    Break away tonight
    I wanna hold your hand
    We’ve got to get it right
    We’ve got to understand

    [Interlude]

    [Verse 3]
    Placing all the questions
    In the minutes of a game we won so long ago
    Dangerous and beautiful
    The radio transmission that I have to know

    [Pre-Chorus 2]
    You could never run
    You could never stay
    And I think you belong to me

    [Chorus]
    Break away tonight
    I wanna hold your hand
    We’ve got to get it right
    We’ve got to understand

    [Chorus]
    Break away tonight
    I wanna hold your hand
    We’ve got to get it right
    We’ve got to understand

    Noname – Song 31 Lyrics

    [Verse 1: Noname]
    All my everything is for you
    All my terrible sense of humor
    And critical interviews
    All my pearly gated redemption
    And casual acting news
    All this money
    And law makin’, like racin’ against the moon, but
    I sell pain for profit
    And I feel profit watching
    Everything is for everything
    Rhymin’ with casualty
    I know labels is backing me but
    My tickets be selling out
    And I’m steady raising my fetus
    Another hit from the fee
    110 degrees, in the desert heat
    With a bubble coat, turtleneck underneath
    Rolling up on the beach
    Smoking a holy leaf
    Laughing, baking
    My homie T
    Hoping joking is all we need
    When I sell pain for profit
    Now I binge-watch Atlanta
    No more TV representation from a Kelsey Grammar
    Let’s toast to niggas getting checks to work behind the camera
    Somebody raise their nana

    [Chorus: Phoelix]
    Truth be told
    I wear my heart on my sleeve
    Watch you sit it on the shelf
    [?] will never leave
    Had to do it for myself
    Find my praise
    Go get your weapon

    [Verse 2: Noname]
    Real recognize real feeling like real prove
    Real buddy buddy after the trip to the Cancun
    Million dollar baby bet you can get to the hands too
    Got a pack of wolves ready to damage a full moon
    The only bitch actually rapping look like me now
    [?]
    [?] just reimagined a freestyle
    Damn flood of niggas still watin’ for me to reach out
    We shadowboxing the government
    Hoping they put the leash down
    I sell pain for profit, not propaganda
    I know cancer’s origin linked to Santa
    I know Santa’s origins linked to money
    Mass production of cattle
    Slaughtering for the yummy
    These niggas is clever
    The prison no better
    The ghost of the living
    We ain’t talking about Reggie
    On Christmas we almost forget him
    What’s a casket to a holdin’ cell
    If a nigga ain’t in it
    Only reason why I’m steady fadin’ and still independent

    [Chorus: Phoelix]
    Truth be told
    I wear my heart on my sleeve
    Watch you sit it on the shelf
    [?] will never leave
    Had to do it for myself
    To find my praise
    Go get your weapon

    Sugarhill Gang – Troy Lyrics

    It’s always dark before the dawn

    [Big Bank Hank]
    The night is black, the streets are steaming
    The air is cracked with the sound of screaming
    Two gangs are out to even the score
    In the alley with the rats and burnt-down store
    [?]
    Every man falls prey to [?]
    But the leader called Blaze is still standing tall
    And his shadow [?] big on the bloody wall
    His face [?] with the life he chose
    And his sweat ran thick and drenched his clothes
    He rules the streets with an iron claw
    Everybody knows that his word is law
    24-7 he [?]
    And every day is a new way to survive
    His dreams of getting out seem far away
    But he believes they’ll still come true one day

    [Chorus]
    It’s always dark before the dawn
    But it’s gonna take guts to keep pushing on
    Might break you back, might make you cry
    But nothing beats a failure except a try

    [Wonder Mike]
    Another night, another fight
    And Blaze and his parents wanna argue ’til the daylight
    “Get out the gang if you wanna grow old
    Or you’ll end up in a alley with a shotgun hole”
    And tears [?] his daddy’s face
    And Blaze jumped up, stormed out of the place
    In the middle of the night, trying to clear his mind
    He walks into the city [?]
    A car flies past [?] explode
    [?] lies in the road
    With one last breath he ends his years
    [?] nightmare, sweating in fear
    He wants to laugh, but he hates to cry
    Because the dream seems real and he knows why
    With a big wet arm he wipes his face
    Just to be sure [?] place
    The whole world’s dark when the TV is bright
    With the videos rocking on Friday night
    And on the TV screen, a breakdancer [?]
    Two fellas not more than seventeen
    They flip, spin, stop on a dime
    And make him wonder, think about the big time
    “Well, i can break like that, there ain’t no doubt
    This here’s gonna be my way to get out”

    [Chorus]
    It’s always dark before the dawn
    But it’s gonna take guts to keep pushing on
    Might break you back, might make you cry
    But nothing beats a failure except a try

    [Wonder Mike]

    Blaze tried hard to become a breakdancer
    [?] couldn’t be the answer
    He thought about quitting, giving up all hope
    Going back to the streets, the guns and the dope
    But the thought [?] turned his gut
    “Trying to go back now? i got to be nuts”
    So he kept on pushing and didn’t look back
    [?] bones would crack
    He was busting up shop, putting brothers to shame
    [?] selling rocks with a [?]
    Then the big break came right on time
    The first big step out of the crime
    A radio station held at the time
    A breakdance competition with a fresh [?] prize
    [?] all the bright lights
    Blaze was strong and proved he was the best
    [?] my special guest
    Stage was lit, showtime was here
    This was the moment he’d come to fear
    His heart started pumping like never before
    When the lights went down and the people roared
    Hit the stage, went to work
    And then the whole damn place just went berzerk

    [Chorus]
    It’s always dark before the dawn
    But it’s gonna take guts to keep pushing on
    Might break you back, might make you cry
    But nothing beats a failure except a try

    Kodak Black – Testimony Lyrics

    [Intro]
    I’m God-sent, I know I’m God-sent
    I swear ‘fore God
    You know what I’m talkin’ ’bout?
    Now, I done overcame so much obstacles
    Came up from up under so much rocks and shit
    Even though I be out here schemin’ like a demon semen
    I know I’m God-sent
    This gotta be God

    [Verse 1]
    I’m God-sent, like He sent me up so I can relay these messages
    Like He use me as his vessel, like He use me as an instrument
    They locked me in a box, they hate how God just keep on blessin’ me
    They locked me in a box, I pray to God this ain’t my destiny
    I don’t drink no lean, I’m sippin’ on holy water like this my medicine
    I’m a livin’ testimony, every album like a testament
    Everything I went through made me who I am ’cause he be testin’ me
    So I’m breakin’ bread with all my fam ’cause I don’t take no ecstasy
    I done sacrificed my niggas ’cause none of my niggas see the best in me
    They want me slingin’ metal like the Devil, but I’m Heaven-sent
    My brother, my mother, and Alex fuck my daddy ’cause he neglected me
    I’m 20 years old, but I act like I been here before, like I’m a veteran
    He speak this shit through me like I’m a prophet, but I’m a reverend
    Put my blood, sweat and tears in all these lyrics ’cause this my Exodus
    I’m dyin’ so I can live, so I can live, I resurrected it
    I’m dyin’ so I can live, so I can live, I resurrected it

    [Chorus]
    Ayy, blood in my eyes, I’m goin’ blind, oh
    Stuck in these streets, feel like my life froze
    I’ve been runnin’ these streets, got me dehydrated
    I’ve been livin’ so crazy, feel like I’m dyin’, baby
    Blood in my eyes, I’m goin’ blind, oh
    I’m stuck in these streets, feel like my life froze
    I’ve been runnin’ these streets, got me dehydrated
    I’ve been livin’ so crazy, feel like I’m dyin’, baby

    [Verse 2]
    I just shot a nigga, now I can’t sleep
    My brother, he just washed me down with bleach, oh
    Project baby, snotty nose, head peezy
    Now everybody ’round the world tryna be me
    Miss my niggas, hope they see me on the TV
    I’m on Instagram showin’ off my VV’s
    You won’t understand that this wasn’t easy
    I been walkin’ ’round with my head peezy
    Shot a nigga, took a shower with the bleach, Yahweh
    Mama, I fell victim to the streets, I’m sorry
    I’m in middle school; sellin’ weed in the hallway
    I was skippin’ school, got in beef, started robbin’
    Jackboy, that’s my G, we like Batman and Robin
    God, I know you lookin’ out for me through the darkness

    [Chorus]
    Blood in my eyes, I’m goin’ blind, oh
    Stuck in these streets, feel like my life froze
    I’ve been runnin’ these streets, got me dehydrated
    I’ve been livin’ so crazy, feel like I’m dyin’, baby
    Blood in my eyes, I’m goin’ blind, oh
    I’m stuck in these streets, feel like my life froze
    I’ve been runnin’ these streets, got me dehydrated
    I’ve been livin’ so crazy, feel like I’m dyin’, baby

    Alessia Cara – 7 Days Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    If there’s a God
    Do you think he’s looking down, curled up on his couch right now?
    As we fail to figure it out, does he turn down the sound?
    Is he proud? Are we proud?
    Guess we forgot how to live a life with no filter
    Making boring people famous
    Let’s pretend they’re fascinating
    Let’s tell little girls that pretty girls are better
    Or that pigment or religion really matters

    [Pre-Chorus]
    We’re in some trouble
    Mr. Maker, don’t turn away from your screen
    At least the bubble that we’ve created could make for some good TV

    [Chorus]
    Oh, Mr. Man Upstairs
    I know you’re tuning in up there, way up there
    Would you care to answer my question?
    Oh, the land of poor taste
    The spectacle of cut and paste that we’ve made
    Would you say, please say it was worth the seven days

    [Verse 2]
    Does he hang his head at all the greed that we possess?
    As the anti-social media perpetuates the mess
    Maybe it’s a test, maybe he’s upset by the loose ends
    Stressed like the rest of us, it happens to the best of us
    God, or is it Mr. G to me?
    I hope that through the static, you’ll show us the clarity
    ‘Cause it’s hard to find the silver lining in the bittersweet
    Wonder if you’re praying for us ‘fore you go to sleep
    Do you sleep in peace?

    [Pre-Chorus]
    ‘Cause we’re in some trouble
    Mr. Maker, but don’t turn away from your screen
    At least the bubble that we’ve created has made for damn good TV

    [Chorus]
    Oh, Mr. Man Upstairs
    I know you’re tuning in up there, way up there
    Would you care to answer my question?
    Oh, the land of poor taste
    The spectacle of cut and paste that we’ve made
    Would you say, please say it was worth the seven days

    [Bridge]
    Don’t touch the remote, we’ll be back in a moment
    We are not hopeless, we are just coping
    The mayhem is rolling, but it ain’t showbiz
    Reality’s potent, chaotic, I know it
    But we’re growing, have some hope in us
    And were we worth all the time you gave up?

    [Chorus]
    Oh, Mr. Man Upstairs
    I know you’re tuning in up there, way up there
    Would you care to answer my question?
    Oh, the land of poor taste
    The spectacle of cut and paste that we’ve made
    Would you say, please say it was worth the seven days
    Yeah, oh, oh

    [Intro: Quando Rondo]
    Pooh, you a fool for this one
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, ay

    Winners circle

    [Chorus: Quando Rondo]
    Unconditional fake love, that’s what they showed me (Showed me)
    I been grindin’, perfect timin’ on my Rollie (Rollie)
    EA Sports, I’m in the game ballin’ like Kobe (Kobe)
    In the trenches rockin’ out wit’ my lil’ woadie
    My girl rock her like a rockstar wit’ no guitar
    I’ve been [?] on these bad, bad broads, all these pop stars
    Cruisin’ on an interstate in a fast car
    Bring the real cat scat, practice, not a NASCAR
    NASCAR

    [Verse 1: Quando Rondo]
    Same pitfall, who we get, we were paper chasin’
    Rubber bands inside my shoebox
    Ain’t no nothin’ ’bout no safe (’Bout no safe)
    Spendin’ shit and get it back it back again
    That fixture’s in rotation (In rotation)
    I know these niggas hatin’ but [?] it ’cause that just motivates
    She hit it from the back, my jack got beated on her
    Caught the pussy, gave that hustle and then I skeeted on her
    I cut my partner off, no scissors, realized I ain’t needed homie
    I put my trust in that lil’ bitty but she [?] around and cheated on me
    Constant conversations with me ex, she wanna be together
    I came up from the bottom so my motto “yeah, we Rich Forever”

    Beefin’ wit’ the Opps, we swang that block
    We take the sticks together, yeah

    I’ve been [?] on these bad, bad broads, all these pop stars
    Cruisin’ on an interstate in a fast car
    Bring the real cat scat, practice, not a NASCAR
    NASCAR

    [Verse 2: Lancito]
    Pull up in a fast car wit’ the doors goin’ suicide
    Money over bitches, that forever be my alibi
    Had to leave my bitch ’cause she [?] with the other side
    Catch her wit’ a nigga, choppa singin’ like a lullaby
    My new bitch, she be carvin’ but I think I love the chase tho’
    Nike shoebox, got me screamin’ [?] a safe tho’
    Stars in the ceilin’, this this outta space flow
    They wanna let me [?] but let me hit in a Wraith tho’
    My momma, she be trippin’ all night, I be schemin’
    Balmain’s is on my body, it protects me from my demons
    Half a mil’ on Worldstar, think I must be dreamin’
    That’s my baby girl, she the Kel to my Kenan
    And these niggas wanna beat me, they need me
    And they know soon they gon’ see me, on TV

    AJR – Role Models Lyrics

    [Intro]
    3, 4

    [Chorus]
    All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
    And, I will unravel if you rip away my best pieces
    Would’ve never come so far, without someone there to start again
    I truly love the art, when I kinda hate the artist
    But, All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
    Wrong reasons

    [Verse 1]
    This time of year, I’m feelin’ weird, might be allergies
    Wanna move out, but when I move out, who’ll be proud of me
    Thought I was made, from [?], put that crown on me
    Thought I was made, from Louis C.K

    [Chorus]
    But, all my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
    (Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
    And, I will unravel if you rip away my best pieces
    (Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
    Would’ve never come so far, without someone there to start again
    I truly love the art, when I kinda hate the artist
    But, All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
    (Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
    Wrong reasons

    [Verse 2]
    I used to say, just what’s on my brain, cause you always did
    You used to be, so special to me, now you’ve taken it
    Look at this mess, should I forget, what you gave to me?
    Look at this mess, wake up Mr. West

    [Chorus]
    Cause, all my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
    (Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
    And, I will unravel if you rip away my best pieces
    (Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
    Would’ve never come so far, without someone there to start again
    I truly love the art, when I kinda hate the artist
    But, All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
    (Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
    Wrong reasons

    Would’ve never come so far, without someone there to start again
    I truly love the art, when I kinda hate the artist
    But, All my role models are on TV for the wrong reasons
    (Ah, Ahhhhhh, Ah, Ahhhhhh.)
    Wrong reasons

    Damian Marley – Patience lyrics

    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kiye ni kêra môgô
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kagni ni kêra môgô

    Some of the smartest dummies
    Can’t read the language of Egyptian mummies
    An’ a fly go a moon
    And can’t find food for the starving tummies
    Pay no mind to the youths

    Cause it’s not like the future depends on it
    But save the animals in the zoo
    Cause the chimpanzee dem a make big money
    This is how the media pillages

    On the TV the picture is savages in villages
    And the scientist still can’t explain the pyramids, huh
    Evangelists making a living on the videos of ribs
    Of the little kids, stereotyping the image of the images

    And this is what the image is, you buy a khaki pants
    And all of a sudden you say a Indiana Jones
    An’ a thief out gold and thief out the scrolls
    And even the buried bones
    Some of the worst paparazzis I’ve ever seen and I ever known

    Put the worst on display so the world can see
    And that’s all they will ever show so the ones in the west
    Will never move east and feel like they could be at home
    Dem get tricked by the beast

    But a where dem ago flee when the monster is fully grown?
    Solomonic linage whe dem still can’t defeat
    And them coulda never clone, my spiritual DNA
    That print in my soul and I will forever own Lord

    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kiye ni kêra môgô
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kagni ni kêra môgô

    Huh, we born not knowing, are we born knowing all?
    We growing wiser, are we just growing tall?
    Can you read thoughts, can you read palms?
    Huh, can you predict the future, can you see storms, coming?

    The earth was flat if you went too far you would fall off
    Now the earth is round if the shape change again
    Everybody woulda start laugh
    The average man can’t prove of most of the things
    That he chooses to speak of

    And still won’t research
    And find out the root of the truth that you seek of
    Scholars teach in Universities
    And claim that they’re smart and cunning

    Tell them find a cure when we sneeze
    And that’s when their nose start running
    And the rich get stitched up, when we get cut
    Man a heal dem broken bones in the bush with the wed mud

    Can you read signs, can you read stars?
    Can you make peace, can you fight war?
    Can you milk cows, even though you drive cars
    Huh, can you survive, against all odds, now?

    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kiye ni kêra môgô
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, yonkontê
    Sabali, Sabali, Sabali, kagni ni kêra môgô

    Who wrote the Bible, who wrote the Qur’an?
    And was it a lightning storm
    That gave birth to the earth
    And then dinosaurs were born? Damn

    Who made up words, who made up numbers?
    And what kind of spell is mankind under?
    Everything on the planet we preserve and can it
    Microwaved it and try it
    No matter what we’ll survive it

    What’s hu, what’s man, what’s human?
    Anything along the land we consuming
    Eatin’, deletin’, ruin, trying to get paper
    Gotta have land, gotta have acres

    So I can sit back like Jack Nicholson
    Watch niggas play the game like the lakers
    In a world full of 52 fakers
    Gypsies, seances, mystical prayers

    You superstitious? Throw salt over your shoulders
    Make a wish for the day
    ‘Cause like somebody got a doll of me
    Stickin’ needles in my arteries but I can’t feel it

    Sometimes it’s like ‘pardon me
    But I got a real big spirit’, I’m fearless, I’m fearless
    Don’t you try and grab hold of my soul
    It’s like a military soldier since seven years old

    I held real dead bodies in my arms
    Felt their body turn cold, oh
    Why we born in the first place
    If this is how we gotta go? Damn

    Charli XCX – Over You Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    Just a little girl on a TV screen
    Stuck inside a silver cage
    Body tangled up in chains
    Looking for the light in the misery
    Trapped behind the windowpane
    Everyday I feel the same

    Close to giving up, giving everything
    Struggling for air, I’m blue
    Fucking with my head, confused
    Sick and tired of drinking your sympathy
    Fighting back, not gonna lose
    It’s true, I’m through, flying with you

    [Chorus]
    I’m so over you
    Tell me, baby, are you over me?
    I’m so over you
    Tell me, baby, will you ever regret me?
    I’m so over you
    Tell me, baby, are you over me?
    I’m so over you
    Promise, baby, that you will never forget me

    [Verse 2]
    Breaking down the doors, I’m invincible
    See if you could stop me now
    Super heroine, no doubt
    Treating me like I was invisible
    Thought that you could shut my mouth
    But now I’m gonna burn you out

    [Chorus]
    I’m so over you
    Tell me, baby, are you over me?
    I’m so over you
    Tell me, baby, will you ever regret me?
    I’m so over you
    Tell me, baby, are you over me?
    I’m so over you
    Promise, baby, that you will never forget me

    [Bridge]
    I want to get out of here
    I want to get out of here
    We’re breaking up, I’m breaking down (Woah-oh-oh)
    I want to get out of here
    I want to get out of here
    I’m moving on, we’re over now, over now (Oh!)

    [Chorus]
    I’m so over you
    Tell me, baby, are you over me?
    I’m so over you
    Tell me, baby, will you ever regret me?
    I’m so over you
    Tell me, baby, are you over me?
    I’m so over you
    Promise, baby, that you will never forget me

    Mick Jenkins – What Am I To Do Lyrics

    [Intro]
    Well I sbet ya
    Well I bet ya
    Well I bet ya
    Well I bet…

    [Verse 1]
    Ali’s jabbin’ them shit feel like hooks
    The less you got stuffed in your pocket books
    The more these policies just sound like crooks
    They give me sloppy looks
    They gave us nothing, had to hustle same way coffee cook
    Early morning grind trying to help these niggas wake up
    Etch A Sketch flows, I got the shit to shake up
    Niggas switching clothes
    Niggas even switch their face up
    But these clowns could never really switch their make up
    Family’s in your genes
    Fuck is that, Mesquite?
    My triple beam onto bigger schemes
    I’m on these waves
    Don’t expect a hand clap cause you swim upstream
    I’m expecting sand traps, I be in the green
    If we talking green backs I’m back in the black
    Been having the formula since Similac
    Delicate flows under heavy metal bars but they’re still intact
    What’s a nigga to do?
    When you call the police but the trigger’s on you
    Shit crazy man

    [Chorus]
    What’s a nigga to do?
    Cause I be streaming black they’ll beat me to blue
    Put it on TV then tell you what’s true
    What’s a nigga to do?
    What’s a nigga to do?
    When you call the police but the trigger’s on you

    [Verse 2]
    Pull up on ’em shining CeCe Winans with the C notes
    Redefining everything the black man denotes
    I could devote time
    How many times have we rewrote lines to get it perfect
    Miss me with inertia I’m on dirt
    You gon’ need assumptions, almost certain
    My assertion we gon’ see if you got gumption
    We gon’ see if you gon’ play it smart or you gon’ be on dumb shit
    Wrong answer, we go dumb shit
    Slow you up on some speed bump shit
    On some ski jump shit
    I’m taking flight cause all my flows cold
    Setting bars, no [?]
    I never blow smoke unless it’s unleaded
    I guess you won’t know my worst
    No unedited stress
    Go on wax, I mean

    [Chorus]
    What’s a nigga to do?
    When you tell ’em who you is and they be like “Who?”
    What’s a nigga to do?
    Yeah, what’s a nigga to do?
    Cause I be streaming black they’ll beat me to blue
    Put it on TV then tell you what’s true
    What’s a nigga to do?
    What’s a nigga to do?

    Pop pop pop that cork
    Pop it like July 4th
    Shorty don’t move like yours
    She get it from a store
    You get it from the Stork
    They don’t do this up North
    They always end it [?]

    [Chorus]
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam

    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam
    Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam, Wala Cam

    Rich The Kid – Lot On My Mind Lyrics

    [Intro]
    I see you. I see [?]
    Haha, you dig?
    I see you haters having problems
    Way too many problems
    Mic check, check, check, check, check, check
    Check, check, check, check

    [Verse 1]
    Ooh, where my mic check?
    These bitches, they been all at my neck (lil bitch!)
    These bitches, all in my call log
    You ain’t put your team on, you ain’t a boss, dog
    Can’t even let these niggas close
    Jealous homies set you up and now you smoke (now you smoke)
    You just spent up all the money, now you broke (now you broke)
    You been internet flexin’ for these hoes (hoes)
    Whole lot of friends turned to enemies
    Smile in my face and said they proud of me
    Now they lookin’ at me like I hit the lottery
    ‘Cause I’m rich but bitch, you ain’t gotta lie to me
    Ooh, I done watched some niggas change up
    They hit for me a couple pieces, we don’t chain tuck
    Too much ice, bust down, I’m still rained up
    And if some niggas wanna try me, get your brain fucked
    She gon’ fuck me ’cause I’m famous, post my picture up
    I call Boris, that’s my driver, he gone pick you up
    Couple losses but more wins, we still racked up
    On the road, doin’ shows, I’m so booked up

    [Vocal Break]

    [Verse 2]
    Ooh, Cartier on me
    Made my first mil’, shit I was still hungry
    Back then all them hoes, they was flexin’ on me
    See me on TV, now she sexin’ on me
    Got the Maybach, finna cop the Wraith on ’em
    Naw, for real they gon’ hate on me
    And I got your bitch been missin’, she gon’ wait on me
    Told double XL I was straight on it (haha)
    I’m finally rich, I knew that they would hate on me (rich!)
    They ran up in the crib and had the K on me
    I was slippin’, thank God that I’m livin’
    ‘Cause it all could’ve been different
    ‘Bout to put these stars in my ceiling
    ‘Cause my bitch straight from heaven
    Rich Forever, bitch I’m in it
    Get a check then I spend it

    [Outro]
    R.I.P X, man
    You know what I’m sayin?
    Young niggas get that bag, man
    Get that bag, stay humble
    Ya dig, and that’s that
    Get a rack packs and back backs

    Florida Georgia Line – Talk You Out of It Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    Girl I know you had a long day
    You ain’t feelin’ them downtown lights
    But I got a bottle at your favorite place
    Just waitin’ for us in a bucket on ice

    Damn, I didn’t think it’d be that easy
    ‘Cause now you’re gettin’ ready
    I’m just sittin’ there watchin’ TV
    Here you come lookin’ like a grown man’s dream
    Damn, I can’t believe, I can’t believe

    [Chorus]
    I talked you into slippin’ down the hall, baby, turn it on
    Your playlist you play when you’re in the shower
    Talked you into taking up my time, making up your mind
    Switching back and forth for an hour
    And now you’re lookin’ like a line from a Vandross song
    I’m looking at the fine little dress you got on
    Don’t get me wrong, girl, I love it
    Now I just wanna talk you out of it

    [Verse 2]
    Yeah, as cool at it would be
    Watchin’ people wonder who you are
    Oh, we should just say we did, we can start with a kiss
    And pretend we just got back from the bar

    [Chorus]
    I talked you into slippin’ down the hall, baby, turn it on
    Your playlist you play when you’re in the shower
    Talked you into taking up my time, making up your mind
    Switching back and forth for an hour
    And now you’re lookin’ like a line from a Vandross song
    I’m looking at the fine little dress you got on
    Don’t get me wrong, girl, I love it
    Now I just wanna talk you out of it

    [Bridge]
    Yeah, it’s a little cold outside
    The music’s probably way too loud
    To hear you laugh
    And there’s a look in your eyes
    Looks like we ain’t leavin’ now
    Girl, I’m so glad, I’m so glad

    [Chorus]
    I talked you into slippin’ down the hall, baby, turn it on
    Your playlist you play when you’re in the shower
    Talked you into taking up my time, making up your mind
    Switching back and forth for an hour
    And now you’re lookin’ like a line from a Vandross song
    I’m looking at the fine little dress you got on
    Don’t get me wrong, girl, I love it
    Now I just wanna talk you out of it

    Elliott Smith – Some Song Lyrics

    Hello, hello, hello
    (This is a rock song.)
    Loud, loud, loud

    It’s a junkie dream, makes you so uptight
    Yeah it’s halloween tonight and every night
    See you scratch your skin
    Your sandpaper throat
    You’re a symphony, man, with one fucking note
    Charlie beat you up week after week
    And when you grow up you’re going to be a freak
    Want a violent girl who’s not scared of anything

    Help me kill my time
    ‘Cause I’ll never be fine
    Help me kill my time

    You went down to look at old Dallas town
    Where you must be sick just to hang around
    Seen it on TV, how to kill your man
    Then like Gacy’s scene a canvas in your hand
    Better call your mom, she’s out looking for you
    In the jail and the army and the hospital too
    But those people there couldn’t do anything
    For you

    Help me kill my time
    ‘Cause I’ll never be fine
    Help me kill my time
    Help me kill my time
    Help me kill my time
    ‘Cause I’ll never be fine
    Help me kill my time

    Katy Perry – Nothing Like the First Time Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    The leaves were falling I was seventeen
    We’d been locking lips, grabbing hips, smoking cigarettes
    We took a drive in your 1990 the hand me down
    From out of town I was California
    Oh my legs were not shaved
    And you had dirt between your fingers
    They told us to behave, but hey

    [Chorus]
    It’s not like riding a bike
    It’s not like flying a kite
    It’s not as easy as pie
    There’s nothing like the first time
    Not like taking a bath
    It’s not like having a laugh
    Not like reading a map
    There’s nothing like the first time

    [Verse 2]
    I had seen it in the magazines
    We would change the channel on the TV screen
    ‘Cause it’s such a sin what you did to me
    Straight to hell is what they sell if you done the deed
    Oh but what could be so bad
    Oh if everyone is guilty
    I guess we want what we can’t have
    ‘Cause I’ve heard…

    [Chorus]
    It’s not like riding a bike
    It’s not like flying a kite
    It’s not as easy as pie
    There’s nothing like the first time
    Not like taking a bath
    It’s not like having a laugh
    Not like reading a map
    There’s nothing like the first time

    [Bridge]
    Do you remember? Do you remember?
    Do you remember? Do you remember?
    La la la la la la la la
    There’s nothing like the first time
    La la la la la la la la
    There’s nothing like the first time

    [Chorus]
    It’s not a walk in the park
    It’s not a shot in the dark
    It’s not a juvenile crime
    There’s nothing like the first time
    It’s not like tying the knot
    There’s no connecting the dots
    And in case you forgot
    There’s nothing like the first time
    There’s nothing like the first time
    There’s nothing like the first time
    There’s nothing like the first time

    [Outro]
    Its not like reading a map..oh ya you give me laugh
    There’s nothing like the first time

    Saba – BROKEN GIRLS lyrics

    [Intro]
    I’m in love with broken

    [Chorus]
    I’m in love with broken girls, girls, girls
    Hey girl, girl, girl, girl
    I’m in love with broken girls, girls, girls
    Girls, girls, girls, hey girl

    [Verse 1]
    Really I’m broke myself, and I think she might help
    Really I love a story, and I think she might tell
    Really I’m not your crutch, really you not my girl
    Really she usin’ me, but it’s cool, we use each oth’
    I’m in love with contemplatin’ ’bout the pressure
    Conversations ’bout depression
    Confrontation cause we care too much about each other
    We know it ain’t permanent but temporary
    Releasin’ your Issa Rae, insecure
    Collect them like Pikachu, Venusaur
    We go ’til you done or my penis sore
    Sleep with the TV on then we don’t speak no more
    And I know when I’m with you, or maybe when you’re with me
    Even if I don’t feel a thing, for a second I feel complete
    I still’ll keep ya in my back pocket
    I know that I’m not shit, I know that it’s toxic
    I know that a part lives, that is where your heart is

    [Chorus]
    I’m in love with broken girls, girls, girls
    Hey girl, girl, girl, girl
    I’m in love with broken girls, girls, girls
    Girls, girls, girls, hey girl

    [Verse 2]
    Tread light like broken glass, really I’m not my past
    Really I snatched your soul, really that’s not to brag
    Really when I’m alone, really I’m not to have
    Really I know you’re empty but I think I can fill your glass
    Fantasizin’ all your problems
    I wanted you more since I found out you heartless
    Harborin’ feelins’ for niggas who hurt you
    Know you on the surface but not on a personal level
    I play the game of hearts
    Missin’ piece, we ain’t apart
    Depend on me until I’m bored
    I return your heart as quick I return your call
    Tables turn quicker cause after a weekend I miss ya
    I don’t want you but I’m conflicted
    I know that back and forth yo-yo shit over with
    But you gon’ take me back, I’m gon’ convince ya
    Pain ain’t never looked so temptin’
    Lonely never looked so distant, we just gon’ ignore the tension
    You know we both not shit, I know that shit toxic

    [Chorus]
    I’m in love with broken girls, girls, girls
    Hey girl, girl, girl, girl
    I’m in love with broken girls, girls, girls
    Girls, girls, girls, hey girl

    [Verse 3]
    This whole time, been obsessed, being sad
    She was my, quick escape, made me forget
    Hear her speak, see her weak, made me feel big
    Crowned me, she downed me, treat me like shit
    Second time, round two, what I learn?
    She weren’t mine, that weren’t love, I weren’t hers
    I’m not hurt, anymore, took some time
    Found a girl, now I’m hers, and she mine
    And she make me, feel whole, heal me
    And it’s, mutual, and we still in love

    [Outro]
    Can’t you care for?
    Can’t you care? Can’t you care?
    Can’t you care for?
    Can’t you care? Can’t you care?
    Can’t you care? Can’t you care?
    Can’t you care? Can’t you care?
    Can’t you care? Can’t you care?
    Can’t you care? Can’t you care?
