Safe by Sage
Feat. Kesha & Chika
Released : 2018

[Intro: Sage & Kesha]
In a mad man’s world, happens every day
I don’t understand why the rules can’t change
I don’t wanna be a moment of silence
I don’t wanna be an early grave
When I’m walking through the halls
I don’t wanna be brave, I just wanna be safe

[Verse 1: CHIKA]
We were just looking for a good time
Now it’s goodbyes for no reason
Every day gun season, breathing was uneven
People down on knees and everything was a blur
Can’t tell you where he was, but I remember where we were
Look, ladies, we can’t even have our past-time
We leave our homes and wonder if it’ll be our last time

[Chorus: Sage & Kesha]
If I die before I wake, please forgive all my mistakes
Know that I was gonna stand for something, something, something
I’ve got so much life to live, and I’ve got so much love to give
Please don’t take it all for nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

[Post-Chorus: Sage & Kesha]
In a mad man’s world, happens every day
I don’t understand why the rules can’t change
I don’t wanna be a moment of silence
I don’t wanna be an early grave
When I’m walking through the halls
I don’t wanna be brave, I just wanna be safe

[Verse 2: CHIKA]
Yeah, politicians only [?] work
Tell me, what is my life worth?
Mamas look at babies sayin’ bye while they in diapers
Used to be afraid of snipers, boogieman, pied piper
Now we in the street, afraid of rifles
They end up in the wrong hands
Say we shouldn’t ban [?]
The right to bear arms trump the right to stand tall
‘Cause the money green as foliage in cemeteries
People up in power cool with laws remaining sedentary
Think I’ve had enough of it, done just putting up with it
We gotta make a difference, we won’t let ’em take another kid
I’m done with it

[Chorus: Sage & Kesha]
If I die before I wake, please forgive all my mistakes
Know that I was gonna stand for something, something, something
I’ve got so much life to live, and I’ve got so much love to give
Please don’t take it all for nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing

[Post-Chorus: Sage & Kesha]
In a mad man’s world, happens every day
I don’t understand why the rules can’t change
I don’t wanna be a moment of silence
I don’t wanna be an early grave
When I’m walking through the halls
I don’t wanna be brave, I just wanna be safe
