  • Hands up, ready for the boom
    Never mind the rocket launcher, talking 'bout a tune
    You can hear us comin' with the zoom
    Listen to the "Boom, boom" we are breaking through

    We prepared for the turbulence
    But there's no preparing for this
    Got paid on Tuesday, but I'm still broke when the weekend ends
    Another trip around the sun, it was a good run
    Just mixing all of my prescriptions with my problems
    Yeah, streets are full of seasons
    Saw what they did to Jesus
    Dude'll kill you for no reason, and charge you for treason
    I know this one for a fact
    My phone they got it on tap
    'Cause every time I'm talkin' I can hear them in the back (hands up)

    Hands up, ready for the boom
    Never mind the rocket launcher, talking 'bout a tune
    You can hear us comin' with the zoom
    Listen to the "Boom, boom" we are breaking through
    Hands up, ready for the boom
    Never mind the rocket launcher, talking 'bout a tune
    You can hear us comin' with the zoom
    Listen to the "Boom, boom" we are breaking through

    She windin' like she losing her mind, yeah
    She windin' like she losing her mind, yeah
    She windin' like she losing her mind, yeah
    She's windin' like she losing her mind, yeah
    Knock, knock, knock, knock, who is it? (hands up)

    She said this is a surprise visit
    It's my fantasy I'm gonna live it
    Hands up, and don't you refuse it
    I wanna tattoo you on me
    Just look what you created
    Dear future self, I hope it's going well
    I'm drunk on cheap whiskey in an airport hotel, yeah

    Hands up, ready for the boom
    Never mind the rocket launcher, talking 'bout a tune
    You can hear us comin' with the zoom
    Listen to the "Boom, boom" we are breaking through
    Hands up, ready for the boom (hands up, hands up)
    Never mind the rocket launcher, talking 'bout a tune (talking 'bout, talking 'bout)
    You can hear us comin' with the zoom (you can hear us comin' with the)
    Listen to the "Boom, boom" we are breaking through

    She windin' like she losing her mind, yeah
    She windin' like she losing her mind, yeah
    She windin' like she losing her mind, yeah
    She's windin' like she losing her mind, yeah
    Knock, knock, knock, knock, who is it?

    Hands up
    You can hear us comin' with the zoom
    Listen to the "Boom, boom" we are breaking through
    Hands up, ready for the boom
    Never mind the rocket launcher, talking 'bout a tune (never mind the, yeah)
