Shay D – Brick City Lyrics

person Azlyricsfolder_openLyricsaccess_time October 17, 2020

f*ck your audi and the crack you shot

To your own in the ends keep em stuck on the block

Killing your brothers murder on a daily

Like you doin the Feds work for them that's crazy

Your shades and chains just don't impress me

Your weak cocky messages asking to sex me

Still flashing all your dough around

Like you got rejected for a bank account

Man buys air force ones for the yoots

Corrupt them in the first place then buy em some shoes

What dickhead sees past your fake ass truths
Got dem shotting in the park and making your moves

Da same dickheads that put you on their youtube channels

No role models just who that shoot barrels

And smoke weed parrow

From brixton to harrow

Young men entranced by views on channels

Dont you see they tryna break us bit by bit

They want us to fight with knives and sticks

So we forget about them and our rights to live

But we gotta build our city back brick by brick

f*ck a crew and the ends you rep

Thinkin puttin people down will bring you respect

You wanna be road then thats what you'll get

And when they build over your flats whats a postcode then

Do you find yourself ducking and diving

I call it waste but you call it surviving

Not everyone shots or makes money rhyming

You got choices when it comes to surviving

Why at times do i feel so unsettled?

Coz ive seen how pride can clash amongst rebels
Mums tellin you dont be a victim

Your moanin that she switching that she crying

Youre not listenin – nah

Dont you see whats happening

Systems gettin tight now and they crackin in

Every estate and every borough

And if youre not them youre getting kicked out tomorrow

Dont you see they tryna break us bit by bit

They want us to fight with knives and sticks

So we forget about them and our rights to live

But we gotta build our city back brick by brick

We gotta rally up unite one another

Not bally up and fight one another

Carry up elevate one another

Educate, celebrate and not hate one another
