Shay D – Brick City Lyrics

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
