lyrics

WONDER

Yo, big up Gurps on production.

Verse 1:

Green seas, open breeze palm trees and a beach
we all got dreams, some seem to be pleased with their niche
others chase p’s, squeeze for the cream
they roll strapped, low jeans and a piece
some only bust shots to the fiends on the streets
keep trusting each other we don’t need the police
govern your own mind lay the demons to peace
become freed human beings with no need to believe
in the seeds a deceit the people need peace
on these cold streets, where police roll deep and cold creep on my homies
and if there ain’t no justice there ain’t no peace that’s the code g
I watch the rat race
I watch these rats chase cheese up in the lab maze
look, they say you won’t affect a change
I ain’t tryna get appraisal
put my letters to the page
dreaming of better ways
we can rise up, prise up the door from the bottom
liberate all of the poor and forgotten

Hook:

Some roll strapped, low jeans and a piece
some only bust shots to the fiends on the streets
keep trusting each other we don’t need the police
govern your own mind lay the demons to peace
X 2

Verse 2:

I watch the kids on the curb tryna earn a rep
I dream of days when the words how we spurn respect
we chase paper, soon seems to turn to debt
common neglect slept on look how the earth is kept
under the rug, coz that’s where the hurt is swept
and I can feel the light I, see the bright skies rise over the night time
that’s why I write rhyme strive to ignite minds
and yo, sometimes my mind is a prison
when I grind full time tryna find me a living
that’s why crime is a given
in a system designed to malign our wisdom
and trust that no line is a gimmick
every line that I write is a timeless epic
so you’ll find my essence in designless presence
never ending joy, like a timeless present
and I might drop the ball for a minute
fall off course for a minute
I might be forced to admit it
but I follow my heart that the path of a spirit
who, uses lyrics to impart the implict
every bar this is art this ain’t particle physics
listen to my heart beat
and know that
your breath is a part of the rhythm
your breath is a part of the rhythm

Hook:

Some roll strapped, low jeans and a piece
some only bust shots to the fiends on the streets
keep trusting each other we don’t need the police
govern your own mind lay the demons to peace
X 2

Govern your own mind lay the demons to peace yeah!
X2

DJ Defunkt scratches:

‘We don’t need bouncers or police!’
X 7
‘I can feel the love when I step into the premises’
