Lockdown

Album: The Messenger (2013)
  • Look out everyone
    I've been pushed hard for too long
    Take back what they've done
    It's a lockdown

    Touch out if we want
    Home is a city
    It's gone and I'm a loser
    And they took back what I want
    Another lockdown

    Freeze out
    If we want
    Love is a city
    A war
    And I'm a loser
    Can I get back what I want?
    In a lost town?

    I know I was born between the exit streets
    And entry's beats and
    A salvage situation
    Where nobody goes
    An education I still don't know

    Coastline of neon
    Makes me look out to what's gone
    Right now there's no better in this town

    Ghosts out tonight
    Help me break out of life
    These times define me in this town

    I know I was born between the angel's streets
    And entry's beasts
    And someone's situation that's nobody's home
    An education that I still don't know

    Look out everyone
    Freezed out
    And we was
    Give back
    Come on
    Lockdown

    Oh, touch out everyone
    Be fast 'cos we're gone
    Come back
    It's on another lockdown
    A lockdown
