Machine Gun Kelly - Street Dreams Lyrics

On a east side night
Under that street light
On the corner of don't think twice
I find my mind where it shouldn't be

[Verse 1:]
Crack Rock in that pad lock
With a stash spot in my ragtop
Street dreams down the block from my dads spot
Bad cops on my payroll
At a buck a pop like Faygo
Add 50 Cent for like 3 keys,
Open up the doors for that Yayo,
White nights cause I make snow
Bright lights then I lay low,
Fight nights I'm like Mike Tyson
K/o for that peso
That's the life that we chose
Talking bout
Money cars and these clothes
Fuckin with
Twenty broads that's exposed
And we in the
Strip clubs till they close
These are the chronicles of a hood muthafucka doin what he gotta do to get paid
Chronic smoke In every follicle of my shades
Writing my obituary diggin my grave,
Cause all they say is jail or death,
And I figure there ain't nothin left,
That I ain't did and since I'm knee deep in my shit, don't hold my breath,
Oh shit,
Guess it's back to that broke shit,
Roach clip in my ashtray
2Pac on my posters
Dreams of living like Sosa,
But I'm wakin up on this sofa,
Said I'm wakin up on this sofa,
I ain't waiting round here no longer,
Get it how you live it bitch we livin dirty
Most of us that's livin now ain't livin thirty,
Get it how you live it bitch we livin dirty
Cock that.38 put on my mask and it gets blurry
I don't think you heard me,

What I need a shirt for?
When you beast shit and you go hard till that tours gone and you back onto that street shit,
What I need this shirt for?
When these tattoos that I bleed with say everything about my story come read this,
What I need a shirt for? Huh? [x3]
When I go hard
So hard, to get everything that I worked for

[Verse 2:]
At the top is no friends dawg,
At the bottom ain't shit dawg,
Middle man'n ain't it dawg,
Plotting drinkin this Hen dog
And I said lord my savior,
Have I not protected my neighbor,
Have I not neglected these haters,
Have I not kept you in my prayers,
So when my life keeps going downhill am I wrong for looking upstairs?
Am I wrong for feeling you hate me, am I wrong for thinking you'd care?
Am I wrong for keepin this weed lit and these smoke clouds In this air?
But I can't sleep without my mind gone cause of shit I witnessed last year,
That boy that left out was just family,
I ain't see the shit comin,
We was supposed to be at these Grammy's
We was supposed to be stuntin,
Shit, we was supposed to somethin,
Fuck that we was supposed to be brothers,
Helped you out when you were struggling, I don't owe you nothing muthafucka.

  9. kelly stone

    It's like an ultraviolet tone. It shares my thoughts. And I'm thinking is it me or is it talking to me? It's strait communication.

    kelly stone

    Do I pose a threat?

    kelly stone

    The energy was only meant for me. Or humble yourself until you feel no one else. (It's what humbling does to you) no one else wants to be you. And You don't want to be a scar to another person You feel only yourself.

    kelly stone

    It's where life begins to be real.

    kelly stone

    What's it gonna take to do what I do? Get your own cross up.

    kelly stone

    It's why I'm left alone.

    Powem 4 Power
    God speaks on toungs the toungs that has faith & love For The Almighty
    Jesus Christ Our Savor Of Humanity. THE END WILL COME.
    God will speak words of words You wonce Judge hide the truth And faith ever rising up.


    BECAUSE the race of
    lies is race of non
    you think you protect The Lies
    it with that gun.
    Force it back down with
    false teachings. Your
    teaching Thats dumb . Your No Creator Of all Things Like God The One
    That You Thought You Were better
    Than me for you will wipe floors for
    For the man with no money
    You called a bum.
    He loved all but he was judge
    For lost his money haven a lil fun
    But it was for God the one.
    He crying for help saying
    He will make it happen you see
    But it's sad he froze in the streets
    Because of
    Faith and love he new
    Safety he be
    .keep the those riches
    Their meaning less
    For me.

    Life Is FOR Faith
    For God To Come and be
    But all you live
    For is a imagine of what
    Sinners and greed lil money
    That raised you up.

    But you didn't study enough because in
    The beginning God Said He is The Creator Of All so all shall have fun.
    This is poems for all makes one For failures is strength for Father to Come.
    The man writes this
    Powem is high on drug.
    What bout pills big farma is
    Faith & Love

    you say he who fails looser in your street

    Has no chance waite till
    faith finds him Faith is all he needs!
    You say its Problems of his mind
    That he sees why so mad of nothing
    He failed for me.

    When I Get In Charge. Their Be Real PROBLEMS You See

    IKNOW how To Fix
    PROBLEMS That Will Never
    Again Be
    Problem like saying he is not to see
    His daughter for what is nothing to
    Me. He loves his children he cries
    In sleep that he be a millionaire
    Just to gain power just to see. I know
    U judge for now he so nice and clean Now that's a father of and success you scream.
    Those lies are no match for me.

    Because With My Teaching
    Of Faith Faith For All to see just follow Faith
    To End

    Its faith I

  14. Larry Smith

    When the moon sleeps the sky
    Cold showers no heat
    Candle wick flickering
    Stomach empty need to eat
    Lost in the land of soldiers
    Geeks staggered through these streets
    So secluded inside demons creep
    Hold tight to imagined dreams
    Midnight skeemon nightmare
    Imperfect scenarios
    All ways told would add up to zero
    In the mirror of life always seen a loyal hero
    But if figures bro
    Here we go again
    It always something
    Ain it tho
    Sweat of your shoulders
    Holds the integrity
    egg shell grip feather lights
    In ya eyes the stars flight
    Red dotting better decisions
    Picking apart personal relationships till they sink
    In sands of time
    You’ll be in ya prime
    When ya down ya the last second
    Tick that tok
    Till the ruthenium
    Till all of them
    Pretend ya hold there own to contend
    But underestimated is the fuel to conquer the sane
    Those warriors whose only ammo
    Is forged from irreversible pain

    Levitate my soul
    I’ll pay the toll
    Let’s take a stroll
    I’ll never settle to be the perfect cell
    Demonstrator aka
    Struggle through the rubble
    Keep crawling till the finger nails rip from a last breath grip
    It’s all lead up to the heartbeat the pumps to ya shoes don’t ditch ya self just ya get the issue threw
    To yourself stay
    Ya ta the end

    Cant compare Binge to this

    Leader Of A02

    Bruh you are not a true fan i love all mgk music. I dont diss anything of his.


    @Leader Of A02 Hey man, we are not stans like eminem's, we are better than that. We can love one of kells' styles without being to forced to like what we don't like. I liked a couple of binge's songs, but if I have to be honest, this song is beyond that.. I'm sure some of his other fans liked it just as much, but that's what versatility does to your fandom xD #HotelDiablo

    Leader Of A02

    @ReallyUnexplainable yo look i dont dis any of kellz music ight and i know yall going to be calling me a stan but dude all of his songs have details that are in everyones everyday lives. I am going to be 💯 i dont listen to nothing but kellz. You can put any rap song on ill turn it off and put MGK on. I only list to the GUNNA 24/7

  52. Leing Lo

  57. Jacob Davidson

    EST FOR LIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Who ever hates mgk and all the other people who talk about the real crap going one in this world they are a bunch of stupid ass people who need to see the truth about MGK(the best person ever) and Eminem and everyone else. Keep it up mgk ur making a difference and i would love to meet you 1 day just to meet the person who has been helping me get past the negativity since 8th grade. Btw live in st. Peters missouri and this is wat i got to say to the world peace out

    Kushal Anjan


    Lee Steel

    @Kushal Anjan ♥️


    Love MGK, was a huge fan and then he beefed with Em who is my fav rapper. I didn't like how MGK handled that beef, showed how childish he can be, However I am not gonna sit here and act like I wasn't bumping this daily a few years ago. Wish He would spit like this again, his new shit doesn't hit me like this does.

    Emily Pyles

    A lot of people talk shit about him because they're jealous. This man came up from nothing. He's an inspiration for people who came from the same type of life. He's proof that you don't have to stay in the shit you grew up with and I love him for it.

    Dr. Kira

    @Emily Pyles problem is, everything's set up with HUGE barriers to success.

  59. Alexander Childrey

    I'm from Michigan. This is is an anthem

  60. Marcus Deras

    I’ve recently started trying to make my own music and I listen to so many artist for inspiration but I don’t relate to anyone as good as I do my man🙏💯hope I get to meet you someday

  61. Bella Mountz

    Me like

  62. jayninja

    All these crazy ass comments.. Mgk... This album... Black flag was when he was so fucking hungry. Then each album he show cased his skills, let true hip hop junkies know I'm here to stay. By him staying though, he fed into, "greatness is recognized." It sucks seeing this rawness get killed because mgk still feels like he has something to prove. It's the whole season why mgk has dipped off into the movie industry, he is chasing acknowledgment. Hip hop has signed him off and he has believed it. Greatness is something that works and it's nothing that humans is use to.

  63. cxiong21

    Really wish 'Black Flag' and '100 Words and Running' were on spotify...

    chase nathen
