JessB - Set It Off Lyrics

Set it off on em, yeah we're bout to set it right
I've been laying low with it, but I'm about to strike
The future's too on, yeah the future's too bright
We're about to set it off, bitch, call it dynamite

They put us out of sight, yeah, and then they dilute the truth
I've been feeling really lost since my last baby tooth
The two bloodlines, (ooh), get your shit confused
I've been tryna run away since I could tie my shoes

Ears stay to the streets, feeling hungry, gotta eat
But the food that they've been feeding us is the start of our defeat
I woke up from my sleep; they've got chains up on our feet
We're all slaves to the system, that's no matter how discreet

I push on for my people, I'm a pillar, I'm not feeble
And you cannot kill my spirit, flying free, I am an eagle
Equal- I don't know? Man this shit subliminal
Had me feeling criminal, had me feeling pitiful

I ain't never been the same, no I ain't your typical
But I'm here and proud me, and well that's the miracle
I keep climbing past these lyrics, climbing to the pinnacle
But I'm here and proud me, and well that's the miracle

We set it off on em, yeah we bout to set it off
We set it off on em, yeah we bout to set it off
We going hard on em, nah we never going soft
We set it off on em, yeah we bout to set it off

Now I'm on my journey and I walk my A-Z
And I cannot change your mind, but at least my mind is free
Running laps like it ain't nothing, I'm a cold MC
I wear my story everyday - they're just all wannabes

I wipe these tears up for my sister, can you see?
We been gold, our souls glimmer, now I told you, can you see?
Melanin runs deep, now I'm just hoping you can see
That there's a queen up in the mirror, getting clearer, can you see?

Now tell me, what you wanna do?
We a product of the man, but how you act is on you
If you wanna run with me, get in formation - 1, 2
We gonna keep knocking on doors until we finally push through

Yeah, that my tried and true, we just tryna rendezvous
I'm jut tryna follow through, live my dreams like déjà vu
And I told you I was cold, I am the shit, this overdue
And if you cannot see by now, well then you better change your view!

We set it off on em, yeah we bout to set it off
We set it off on em, yeah we bout to set it off
We going hard on em, nah we never going soft
We set it off on em, yeah we bout to set it off

We set it off on em, yeah we bout to set it off
We set it off on em, yeah we bout to set it off
We going hard on em, nah we never going soft
We set it off on em, yeah we bout to set it off
