Lyrics: Somebody Dies

The city dims

Clouds like smoke, they roll in

Sky scrapers, sky scraping bills, sky scraping worry we live in

What a shame

 

We dating the hustle, we swipe right to the worry, to the 9 to 9

We dating the hustle, we swipe right to the busy, to the night life

And don't slow down, no we don't slow down

'Til somebody dies

 

Is daddy home?

Where's momma?

She ain't read me a storybook since I was two years old

They just some sky chasers

Chasin' dem bills, chasin' dem coffee and comforts we live in

But what's my name? Daddy what's my name? What's my name?

 

Your home is the hustle, you live right in the worry, in the 9 to 9

Your home is the hustle, you live right in the busy, in the night life

And don't slow down, no you don't slow down

'Til somebody dies

 

That marriage died

That friendship died

That daughter just cried but wasn't recognized

But privilege ain't dying'

And poverty ain't dying'

But our sanity done died

 

Yes something always has to give, 

always has to die.
