Black Milk - Swimm Lyrics




When the light's lookin' dim
And your life's on the limb
It's, uh, sink or swim (My nigga)
Yeah, sink or swim (My nigga)
When the light's lookin' dim
And your life's on the limb
It's, uh, sink or swim (My nigga)
Yeah, sink or swim

No faint of heart, it's obvious who playin' hard
The outcome of how you live depends on how you start
Make your mark or fall in line and play your part
Never had a chance to deal a hand, just played the cards
On God, some would rather go fraud
And ride on every other wave like the Coast Guards
It's all a scheme (Uh), family couldn't meet they means
Uncles and cousins who was too asleep to see they dreams
We still make the memories on them failed nights
Real life, close to jail nights
Them what the hell nights (Ayy), runnin' red lights (Ayy)
Cousin' with the Cutlass with the busted tail lights
Psh, and the cops here, damn

All burnt out with no place to go
You got no choice but to face your soul
Money equals time, ain't no wastin' mine
Before you step up, think twice before you take that dive

When the light's lookin' dim (Lookin' dim)
And your life's on the limb (On the limb)
It's, uh, sink or swim (Sink or swim, my nigga)
Yeah, sink or swim (Sink or swim, my nigga)
When the light's lookin' dim (Lookin' dim)
And your life's on the limb (On the limb)
It's, uh, sink or swim (Sink or swim, my nigga)
Yeah, sink or swim

Indigo child, oh, how you tell the signs
The revolution rumor will not be televised?
Prepare me for my purpose is what I often tell to God
Just plug me for my labor's what I try to tell my mom
See, that sneaker job only pays seven forty-five
Three shifts a week, four to five hours at a time
Thirty hours on one check, my nigga? I can divide
To sum it up, all of this work ain't worth all of my pride
These heirs, they came prepared for takin' all of my pie
I deserve more than just a piece of dough
My knuckles ashy, see, I needed dough
Pops, the apple ain't fall far from the tree, fo' sho
I'm really splashin' in the deep fo' sho
Case you needs to know, nigga

When the light's lookin' dim (Lookin' dim)
And your life's on the limb (On the limb)
It's, uh, sink or swim (Sink or swim, my nigga)
Yeah, sink or swim (Sink or swim, my nigga)

Sink or swim, sink or swim
