Shirazee – Tired Lyrics

Tired By Shirazee

Went from a ball and a chain
now you want a bullet in skin
Are you scared my melanin?
Or the royal blood in my veins?
I no go fall for your violence
I no go suffer in silence

How you telling me to behave
When you got your knee on my head
Why you telling me that I’m safe?
When all I really want is some air
I no go fall for your violence
I no go suffer in silence

I’m tired
Your hate is the gas and my pain the lighter
Take a look around the city’s on fire
The more you ignore it the more it’ll rise up
Rise up I’m tired
Your hate is the gas and my pain the lighter
We’re giving you love and you set us on fire
The more you ignore it the more we will rise up
Tired I’m tired

You told me my voice would be heard
Then I go vote all in vain
Bigotry, liberty? don’t sell me dreams of freedom once again
(Nah) too many to count
Too many results we don’t see,
(Nah) I’m getting my peace my way because

I’m tired
Your hate is the gas and my pain the lighter
Take a look around the city’s on fire
The more you ignore it the more it’ll rise up
Rise up I’m tired
Your hate is the gas and my pain the lighter
We’re giving you love and you set us on fire
The more you ignore it the more we will rise up
Tired I’m tired

Tired

Tired
