MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS lyrics : "A Wake ft. Evan Roman (The Heist)"

The Heist.

Macklemore is by far lyrically one of the Around today. & His work with Ryan Lewis is amazing.

You need love
Give me love

And I'll give you my love

[Verse 1]

They say thirty is the new twenty
And twenty is the new thirty %#@! I guess
Makes sense, cause fifteen year olds seem twenty

And twenty five year olds seem ten
I used to drink away my paycheck
Celebrate the mistakes I hadn't made yet

Our generation isn't the best on safe sex
We forget the latex, becoming Planned Parenthood patients
Synthetic [email protected](% is the new basehead

So much to escape, $#[email protected] a straight edge
Walk around looking through a fake lens
Apps this good, whose got time to make friends?

I wish I didn't care
Acynical hispters with long hair
Cocaine problems, like my music

It's not my issue, I can't solve it


My flight has finally landed down
And the ground has stopped moving all around
Eyes open, awake for the very first time

We both forfeit this game of crime

[Verse 2]

They say it's so refreshing to hear somebody on records
No guns, no drugs, no sex, just truth
The guns that's America, the drugs are what they gave to us

And sex sells itself, don't judge 'til it's you
Ah, I'm not more or less conscious
The rappers rappin' 'bout them strippers up on the pole, copping

These interviews are obnoxious
"Saying that 'it's poetry, you're so well spoken,' stop it"
I grew up during Reaganomics

When Ice T was out there on his killing cops %#@!
Or Rodney King was getting beat on
And they let off every single officer

And Los Angeles went and lost it
Now every month there is a new Rodney on Youtube
It's just something our generation is used to

And neighbourhoods where you never see a news crew
Unless they're gentrifying, white people don't even cruise through
And my subconcious telling me stop it

This is an issue that you shouldn't get involved in
Don't even tweet, R.I.P Trayvon Martin
Don't wanna be that white dude, million man marchin'

Fighting for our freedom that my people stole
Don't wanna make all my white fans uncomfortable
But you don't even have a $#[email protected]' song for radio

Why you out here talkin race, tryin' to save the $#[email protected]' globe
Don't get involved if the cause isn't mine
White privilege, white guilt, at the same damn time

So we just party like it's nineteen ninty nine
Celebrate the ignorance while these kids keep dying
