lyrics

There we was,
Inna cage,
Life clinging,
Birds trapped,
Two canaries.
Both signing,
Memorize the lines,
Cuz in due time,
There won’t be any more songs to pull us out that mine,
I guess we’ll just flap in the darkness,
Use the wings that we harnessed
And if we don’t. it’ll collapse on us,
Regardless,
I don’t like that plan,
But I guess I’m finna run with it,
As fast as i can,
The tales you be bringing,
Is what kids gone be singing,
When they playing double dutch,
Feet giving light touch to the ground,
Rope swinging,
If the cold hurt your skin,
Thats the pain rain bring in,
If he hadn’t died,
Would this be what I be living,
Why a casket needed,
For love to be giving,
I wanna it from all my niggas.
That is the vision,
Tryna make this shit work,
Until my nigga…,
With these wings you can,

With these wings you can,
With these wings you can,
With these wings you can,
With these wings you can,

Yeah,

My nigga,
Please tell me what we lack,
What do we need,
To get these wings up out our back,
It’s getting hard,
To keep this heart we got intact,
If we make it outta here,
A nigga never looking back
Hoping that this gone shake you to your core,
Real niggas know,
What dipped gold,
Drip on mama’s floor,
I want the windows by the shore,
I want the marble on the floor,
I want a coop,
One that soars,
I want a chain as big as yours,
Is it bad,
That this pain I can’t divorce,
Cause without it,
I don’t know really who I am anymore,
Wrinkles start to form,
From the crown of thorns,
In his head,
As he bled,
Lift him up with every word I’ve said,
Figure out what message I send,
When all these symphonies sound like orchestrated ends,
And at the end of the songs, -
Will all my niggas ascend,
I found a way to break the rules,
Or atleast we’ll make it bend,
With these wings you can,
With these wings you can,
With these wings you can,
With these wings you can,
With these wings you,
