Benny Banks – Burning Bridges Lyrics

Burning Bridges Lyrics – Benny Banks

I guess she the poison that I like the most
Stubborn bitch treating me like I’m a ghost
We so far apart and you still keep me close
But what you meant to sell when all your dreams are sold?
I don’t compromise, I’d rather go for broke
Overfill your ego but don’t feed your soul
Tryna fill a gap and ended in a hole
You ain’t really free, it’s like you’re on parole
Pussy sweet but you the opposite
Proper bitch, alcohol will turn you to a horror flick
Your man annoying so you hit me tryna borrow dick
Treat my nut like your pride baby, swallow it
Used to be a page I thought I’d never turn
Now I see you like a lesson I’ve already learned
Working on being better while you’re getting worse
I’m just looking like you’ll never learn
I’m still learning how to be a parent
Make sure you’re present in their life, don’t just make an appearance
I do what I want, I ain’t asking for clearance
When I rely on people they keep disappearing
Spent my whole life tryna make me some P’s
Took me thirty years to learn money weren’t bringing me peace
Stress isn’t bringing me sleep
That’s why I pray to God and don’t pray to a priest

Living free but we don’t know freedom
Follow you wherever you leave me
Love me, at least before you leave me
Had to burn these bridges
Living free but we don’t know freedom
Follow you wherever you leave me
Love me, at least before you leave me
Had to burn these bridges down

Surrounded by some snakes and vultures
I wear a mask to hide my face, not to hide from COVID
They’re screaming ‘All Lives Matter’, I guess that makes ’em cultured
If our parents didn’t drink then they was probably dope heads
Weed fiend, I smoked it to the roaches
Money motivated, we was taking road trips
Taking L’s that had me feeling hopeless
Tryna open up but couldn’t find the words and started choking
Rope around my neck, it’s got my ego breaking sweat
Cause if I fall off of the step, well then I’m dead
But I can’t take it anymore, can’t be patient anymore
Sick of waiting by the doors
I thought buying keys would open up some more
Ain’t a drug dealer that raps, I’m a rapper selling drugs
“Benny you a backwards little mug”, word to my mum
Word to my unborn son, I’m exactly what you shouldn’t become
I mind my business like I’m Kermit
How can you deserve it if you never put no work in?
I know karma’s still lurking, sidetracking from my purpose
I walk across the bridge and then I burn it, I’m on fire like a furnace
Your favourite wordsmith but still I’m like a book without no words in
What’s your words worth if they’re worthless?
Sometimes even peace can be disturbing

Living free but we don’t know freedom
Follow you wherever you leave me
Love me, at least before you leave me
Had to burn these bridges
Living free but we don’t know freedom
Follow you wherever you leave me
Love me, at least before you leave me
Had to burn these bridges down
