  • [Intro: A$AP Rocky]
    Yeah
    On my young niggas, on my done nigga
    Yeah
    Woo!
    Yeah
    On my young one, on my done one
    One time!
    Woo!

    [Chorus: M.I.A.]
    Ay, oh-ay, ay-ay-ah
    Ay, oh-ay, ay-ay-ah
    Ay, oh-ay, ay-ay-ah
    Ay, oh-ay, ay-ay-ah
    Ay, floatation device
    Ay, elevate your life
    Ay, we with ceiling lights
    Ay, sipping from the kite

    [Verse 1: Pharrell]
    We in love at the rally
    Thought they had to add the clothes
    Tonight we unify society
    All my sisters and my bros
    Against the wind, they gon' shoot us
    Regardless which way it blows
    In the moon like we're Venus
    Kites like UFOs
    Nigga hold a door
    What you tryna' to close it for?
    Nigga hold a door
    There's room for some many more

    [Verse 2: Pharrell]
    Wake up in the morning, don't know if you're coming back
    When we do the [?] we make 60 'til it's done
    Everybody need space, okay
    If you got the light inside, you know you need to blah!
    If you want to shine way out!
    If you want to shine way out!
    Way, way, way out!
    If you want to bring the day out

    [Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar & Pharrell]
    Kites on my radar, life in my palms
    We unite through the chaos (only for the purist)
    Tell them to obey ours
    My cerebellum threw a rebellion from AR's (room for the boom stick)
    The day I have a J.R., I tell him the worth of God only, and quit his day job (motherfuck the bullshit)
    Radio never play ours
    This revolution ain't televised with prayer, jumping over borders
    Ain't no ruler for restrictions, ain't no police to deport us
    Ain't no summers for our sons, ain't no dealings for our daughters
    Every prosecution hung, save the verdict for the lawyers
    Illuminate the corner, celebrate humanity scream and back at me in the morning
    Every field in Mississippi, every street in California
    Know the devil is a liar, it's the time to be anointed
    Truck into a stream, disconnected to a dream
    Head bussin', hittin' nothing, even if I gotta bleed
    Sittin' waiting patient for a universal pain
    Politicking with the nation, this is big as you and me huh?
    I let you find my contacts, okay
    Tryna set us off for combat, no way
    Waking up the spirit it's on every human being
    If you with us, then you scream, so one day you can shine way out!
    Me, I'm way, way out

    [Bridge: Pharrell & M.I.A.]
    Way, way, way out
    Hey, hey
    Bring the fucking crayon
    Hey, hey

    [Verse 4: M.I.A.]
    The girls in here are the humblest
    We drink out our plastic tumblers
    While you see us on Tumblrs
    We wanna get a job as a baroness
    They don't want no god damn foreigners!
    Say "hey, you, you wanna marry us?"
    Carriers the cross, they carry us
    I wanna get high cause I'm curious
    I'm serious, I hope you are feeling us
    I'm paying all these with periods
    With mobiles are running delirious
    It's our dream, out of this radius
    I'm letting off kites over barriers
    I'm letting off kites over barriers
    I'm letting off kites over barriers
    I'm letting off kites over barriers
    I'm letting off kites over barriers

    [Outro: Chad Hugo]
    There's room for so many more
    Hey! Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
