K'naan - Somalia Lyrics

[00:12.94]Uh
[00:15.89]Yeah
[00:20.30]Somalia
[00:23.40]Yeah
[00:24.31]I spit it for my block
[00:25.78]It's an ode I admit it
[00:27.48]Here the city code is lock and load
[00:29.14]Any minute is rock and roll
[00:30.80]And you rock and roll
[00:32.13]And feel your soul leavin
[00:33.66]It's just the wrong dance
[00:35.32]That'll leave you not breathin
[00:39.24]I'm not particularly proud
[00:40.98]Of this predicament but
[00:42.28]I'm born and bred
[00:43.27]In this tenement I'm sentimental What
[00:45.46]Plus it's only right to represent my hood
[00:47.01]And what not
[00:48.25]So i'm about to do it in the music in the movies
[00:49.31]Cut to the chase pan across to the face
[00:51.39]I'm right there
[00:52.56]Freeze frame on the street name
[00:53.99]Oops wait a minute
[00:55.69]This is where the streets have no name
[00:56.98]And the drain of sewage
[00:58.41]You can see it in this boy how the hate is brewin
[01:01.09]Cause when his tummy tucks in
[01:03.55]Fuck the pain is fluid
[01:04.64]So what difference does it make
[01:06.02]Entertaining threw it
[01:07.38]Some get high mixing coke and gun powder sniffin
[01:10.40]She got a gun but could have been a model or physician
[01:13.61]So what you know bout the pirates terrorize the ocean
[01:16.48]To never know a simple day without a big commotion
[01:19.43]It can't be healthy just to live with a such steep emotion
[01:22.56]And when I try and sleep I see coffins closin
[01:39.22]Yeah
[01:39.74]Yeah
[01:40.42]We used to take barb wire
[01:42.24]Mold them around discarded bike tires
[01:44.54]Roll em down the hill in foot blazin
[01:46.66]Now that was our version of mountain bike racing
[01:49.49]Daammn
[01:50.98]Do you see why it's amazing
[01:52.94]When someone comes out of such a dire situation
[01:55.83]And learns the English language
[01:58.85]Just to share his observation
[02:00.97]Probably get a Grammy without a grammar education
[02:02.37]So fuck you school and fuck you immigration
[02:05.09]And all of you who thought I wouldnt amount to constipation
[02:07.96]And now i'm here without the slightest fear and preservation
[02:11.05]They love me in the slums and in the native reservations
[02:13.92]The world is a ghetto with ministerin deprivation
[02:17.51]My mommy didnt raise no fool did she
[02:20.46]I promise I would get it and remain strictly loyal
[02:23.36]Cause when they get it then they let it all switch and spoil
[02:26.35]But I just illuminated it like kitchen foil
[02:29.63]A lot of main stream niggas is yappin about yappin
[02:32.62]A lot of underground niggas is rappin about rappin
[02:35.56]I just wanna tell you what's really crackalackan
[02:38.54]Before the tears came down this is what happened
[02:41.94]So what you know bout the pirates terrorize the ocean
[02:45.04]To never know a simple day without a big commotion
[02:47.98]It can't be healthy just to live with a such steep emotion
[02:51.05]And when I try and sleep I see coffins closin
