lyrics

CHORUS

Shits electric currency

Life is hectic but forget it got get this Currency

The world is distant
Musta missed it
got it twisted

current sea

Sea current man that's the wave

Recurrent man that's the days

Don't be a slave to that currency

We neglected what we should have projected

To be more Pacific we all connected by the current… sea

Currently

Yeah, yeah


TAG

Water water everywhere not a drop to drink


VERSE

If Everybody was a millionaire
Somebody still would try to steal your share
The price of tea would be high as weed
And poverty would still fill the air
Just cuz a nigga go cop a Benz
he still might feel the need to plot revenge
Bring the glock in, kicking doors off the hinge,
they not your friend just cuz they got some ends
This art of war is all economics
The price is life, to protect our profit
They say that money is root, but Let’s be honest,
The seed is greed, before it gets pressed to dollars
It’s evil dwelling in the hearts of men
Everybody eats then it starts again
It’s weakness when they turn their partners in
If they get knocked when they had a lot to spend
It was awesome then, cuz you’d often win
But where’s the brotherhood when it’s stops and ends
Rather be with my people and my pockets thin
Than the go off on a limb and have to talk to them
The instigators wanna infiltrate us, imitate us, even demonstrators, getting paid to portray, so they blend as neighbors like they did us favors, to pretend they’re native,
But hell nah y’all all fugazi
So fuck you pay me, no come through maybes
Rush my safe and Imma bust the safety plus
My Kung fu’s crazy, you’ll be rushed through Grady

VERSE

Can’t worship the sun when the slave heat
Came down from the sky and the rays beat
On the skin of my kin working wage free
So if you want my time, just know it ain’t cheap
Bumping ac while I change speeds clear the lane please
My main squeeze be the trigger like a brain freeze
You’ll be stuck waiting lame til the pain leaves
You wouldn’t get the bigger picture if I say cheese
What happens to you if your money in the bank’s seized
You’ll probably take up arms before you take knees
Then draw em on civilians like some straight thieves
Instead going at the ones who plant the hate seeds
Til we’re waist deep, in a waste heap
Nothing stays peace for you to safekeep
The head of state speaks, It’s not a great speech
We’re feeling hungry, they’re feeling angry
It’s like a great sea, that overcame me,
But waves saved me, when I became beached, either that or it’ll be a watery grave sleep
More than just a sip, dying of thirst, you may sink
