Dax – GOTHAM Lyrics

GOTHAM Lyrics – Dax

I think that we’re headed down the wrong road
Fakes real and they say real’s fake woke
False prophets on these screens everywhere we go
But what did you expected when dumb people got smart phones
More memes cool make it all a big joke
Crown your fake kings and let them sit up on your fake thrones
You’re young now but just wait until you grow old
When life gets real you’ll remember all these words I wrote
I went roaming walked multiple ways
For 40 nights 40 sleeps yes multiple days
In the dessert no food water searching for the answers but you listen to these people who got nothing to say
You wouldn’t know real if it slapped you right in the face
Ain’t for the culture I can tell by the sh*t you embrace
I’m in Gotham but my minds in a different place
So F*ck your co-signs, money, and your radio play
I be shaking when I write my music
I’ve been anti-v*olent but don’t push me cause I just might do it
They won’t give you no credit cause they know you’ll use it
And that’s what happens when the master starts fearing the student
In this city you’re a number they don’t see you as human
Just a puppet they replace for their games and amusement
In a city full of angels with the biggest influence I see demons with a platform who just fucking abuse it

In Gotham..

Everybody knows everybody
if you ain’t got a blue check you Ain’t anybody
Redo, repeat, sleep, double tap, see copy
Lost souls unaware they’re turning into dead zombies
Everywhere you look is plastic all fabricated
Everything you’ve seen on tv was exaggerated
Don’t nobody see you till you get a million
followers and when you do they treat you like you’re someone and you’re validated
What do you do?
How much money you make?
Who do you know?
What do you drive?
Where do you stay?
And while you’re answering those questions
They’ll be calculating how much of it they can see themselves trying to come in and take
If you’re fragile don’t you even try come to this place
They gon’ build you just to break you then rebuild you to break
Let you reach your own limit then heroically save and that’s exactly how Gotham turns you into a slave

In Gotham
Everyone goes and they lose they’re souls cause they can’t control in Gotham
Everyone lies
it’s an eye for an eye
you will lose your mind in Gotham
Everyone goes and they lose their souls cause they can’t control in Gotham
Living in Gotham
Living in Gotham
Living in Gotham
Living in Gotham

Nobodies from here
But everybody come here
Wanting to be famous till they realize the price of fame brings close everything that they once feared
Consumed by the algorithm it becomes clear life’s a simulation all controlled by a puppeteer
blind people leading blind people driving cars to a destination that is unclear while they can’t steer
1 year 2 years 3 years 4
Drugs alcohol addiction morgue
Fake friends women gold digging as a sport
who convince you, you should live a whole life you can’t afford
Nobody sees you, you’re continuously ignored
Everybody wants fame they don’t care what it’s for
They don’t wanna build theirs,
They’re just tryna take yours
This is dog eat dog in this messed up world

You think you need this place but you don’t
Happiness is not a physical place you call home
Did you ever wonder why you feel like you feel when you take that time away from your phone
Fake shit goes viral we know this won’t
They’ll say they care but will never show
Gotham isn’t just a place it’s a mind state
Watered by the thoughts that manifest what you grow

In Gotham
Everyone goes And they lose they’re souls cause they can’t control in Gotham
Everyone lies
it’s an eye for an eye
you will lose your mind in Gotham
Everyone goes and they lose their souls cause they can’t control in Gotham
Living in Gotham
Living in Gotham
Living in Gotham
Living in Gotham

Don’t Tell them how you feel cause I promise they won’t call back
Everybodies in it for money so it’s all bad
Killing off my demons I’m rapping this in all black
I ain’t gotta
I ain’t gotta
I ain’t gotta
I ain’t gotta
Prove nothing to Gotham they ain’t done nothing for me… for me
