Lupe Fiasco - Around My Way (Freedom Ain't Free) Lyrics

Font:      
Align:    
  • First off say peace to Pine Ridge
  • Shame at all the damage that the white man wine did
  • Ghost dance, Trail of Tears, 5 million beers a year
  • And all that other crime did
  • More peace to the teachers of blind kids
  • To rebels in small cells keeping their mind big
  • Say everything's hostile
  • Suicide bombers and prosperity gospels, emaciated models
  • With cocaine and blood pouring out their nostrils, they got to
  • Just to stay awake on the catwalk of life where everybody watch you
  • Straight hair, high heels and a handbag
  • Crucifixes, racism and a land grab
  • Katrina, FEMA trailers, human body sandbags
  • A peace sign and a pants sag
  • A money toss cause a 9 stripper mad dash
  • A friend request following a hash tag
  • Now everybody want it like a last laugh
  • A Michael Jackson jacket or a daft mask
  • Purple Jordans or the mixed girl in your math class
  • Stable is when the Ba'ath had Baghdad
  • But corporate jets really had to have that gas bad
  • War and they hope they all fall from the ratatat
  • Cause that's just more dinosaur for the Cadillac
  • [Hook]
  • Live from the other side what you see
  • A bunch of nonsense on my TV
  • Heaven on Earth is what I need
  • But I feel I'm in Hell every time I breathe
  • Reporting live from the other side what you hear
  • A bunch of nonsense all in my ear
  • Rich man, poor man, we all gotta pay
  • Cause freedom ain't free, especially 'round my way
  • [Verse 2]
  • And we marvel at the state of Ottoman
  • Then turn around and treat Ghana like a garbage can
  • America's a big mother*****in' garbageman
  • If you ain't know, you're part and parcel of the problem
  • You say no you ain't, and I say yes you is
  • Soon as you find out what planned obsolescence is
  • You say no they didn't, and I say yes they did
  • The definition of unnecessary-ness manifested
  • Say that we should protest just to get arrested
  • That goes against all my hustling ethics
  • A bunch of jail niggas say its highly ineffective
  • Depart from Martin, connect on Malcolm X tip
  • Insert Baldwin to similar the separate
  • To me, the truth is more fulfilling than a meth hit
  • Or finding really fast internet to have some sex with
  • It's all one song short of a set list
  • Couple croissants shy of a continental breakfast
  • Or blowing out your birthday candles just to make a death wish
  • So absurd, word to Chief Bone Necklace
  • Down at the Lakota Sioux Casino
  • A whole culture boiled down to giving you pokeno
  • I go as left as a heart in the chest
  • Cause the Horn of Africa is now starving to death
  • [Hook]
  • [Verse 3]
  • An all white Los Angeles, the dream of Mr. Chandler
  • Hope and pray they take Columbus day up off the calendar
  • South Central an example of God's gifts
  • So shout to all the mothers raising babies in SPA 6
  • The projects of Oakland city, Detroit ghost towns
  • Monopolies on poverty where D-boy coke bound
  • It’s parts of Manila like the video for "Thriller"
  • But the US Embassy is reminiscent of a villa
  • If poverty is chocolate and privilege vanilla
  • Then what’s the flavor of the Sunday preacher’s pedophilia
  • Cash rules everything around these niggas
  • As classrooms everywhere around me wither
  • Hither you can be Mr. Burns or Mr. Smithers
  • The tyrant or the slave but nowhere in the middle
  • Of the extremes of America’s dream
  • Freud fighting Neo, Freddy Krueger refereeing, now…
  • [Hook]
