Jenkins, Mick - Drowning Lyrics




We gon' need some drugs for the situation
Shout out to my plug, its a lituation
Won't we need the litigation
All we ask is ventilation
I can't breathe, I can't breathe
I can't breathe, I can't breathe

When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right? When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right?
Wait, wait, that don't sound right
Just wait, one second, that don't sound right
When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right?
When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right?
Wait, wait, that don't sound right
Just wait, one second, that don't (sound right)...

I was high and I was startin' to lose focus
Then I stumbled in the water, I was trippin', I was chokin'
I can't breathe
Yeah, I can't breathe
Started floatin' way out in the open
'fore I knew it I was driftin' in the middle of the ocean
Saying, I can't breathe
Yeah, I can't breathe
Started whalin', started flailin'
I was splashing, waves crashing all around me
Felt the passion of the water
Saying, I can't breathe
Yeah, I can't breathe

When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right? When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right?
Wait, wait, that don't sound right
Just wait, one second, that don't sound right
When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right?
When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right?
Wait, that don't sound right
Just wait, one second, that don't sound right

Dial tone on my hotline, it don't bling much
Sing songs like Tubman
Young Stephen Morris, I ain't seen much
Just a couple motherfuckers tryna rape the culture
Tell the vultures I don't need lunch
It's like morse code
Gotta be in touch to communicate it to the people
Love heals all
Best get your immunization, that THC
So we smoking in here like we fumigating
For the fuckboys too much truth in me
I don't trust niggas
I ain't preaching at you
I don't touch boys
Brought the baggage with me
Like a bus boy I don't need tips
You could see mines
Rap Genius, you could read mines
In between lines
Yeah they act genius but the way society is set up
Almost like they read minds
You heard Alchemy, boy I'm Magneto
They can't read mines
Niggas bark loud
Talkin' revolution, when the waves come they turn feline
I been turnin' tricks
In the coldest part of the deepest water like a sealion, you could see why

We gon' need some drugs for the situation
Shout out to my plug, its a lituation
Won't we need the litigation
All we ask is ventilation
I can't breathe, I can't breathe
I can't breathe, I can't breathe

When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right? When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown right?
Wait, wait, that don't sound right
Just wait one second, that don't sound right

When the real, hold you down, you supposed to drown
When the real, ohh hold you down, you supposed to drown
When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown
When the real hold you down, you supposed to drown
I can't breathe I can't breathe no no no no no no no no no no no no auwwwww!
I was high and I was startin' to lose focus
Then I stumbled in the water, I was trippin', I was chokin'
Saying, I can't breathe
Yeah, I can't breathe (I can't breathe with this muhfuckin' flag round my neck)
Started floatin' way out in the open
'fore I knew it I was driftin' in the middle of the ocean
Saying, I can't breathe (I can't breathe with this muhfuckin' flag round my neck), Yeah, I can't breathe
Started whalin', started flailin'
I was splashing, waves crashing all around me
Felt the passion of the water
Saying, I can't breathe (I can't, I can't breathe with this muhfuckin' flag round my neck)
Yeah, I can't breathe

We gon' need some drugs for the situation
Shout out to my plug, its a litiation
Won't we need the litigation
All we ask is ventilation
We gon' need some drugs for the situation
Shout out to my plug, its a lituation
Won't we need the litigation
All we ask is ventilation
I can't breathe, I can't breathe
I can't breathe, I can't breathe

Jenkins, Mick Drowning Comments
  1. The Alright Guy

    Preach truth, not Jesus Mick. TRUTH, the REAL water brother, study if you don't know.

    Book of Yahweh is the closest Bible you will get to the closest translation of the original scriptures. Yahweh never refers to himself as God to his people, he is our Heavenly Father. "I AM THAT I AM" Yahweh's wisdom CAN be within us all, follow his laws and commandents and plead for him. You are being deceived by the Roman Catholic Church, KJV is altered and not accurate. Catholic means "Universal", meaning they worship all Gods, the hosts of heaven, not our Creator as they should. Vatican means "Divining Serpent". Christianity is a sham, as all 4,199 religions are. Yahweh is the Mighty One, our Heavenly Father and Only One in Heaven above that should be reverenced, BY HIS NAME, NOT "GOD". Yahweh is not a God. In all of the original Scriptures, the Heavenly Father and Creator Yahweh was never known as a God or Lord. Think of who you are reverencing. Repent and realize this, this is information. Your choice to research and validate and come to a realization. Yahweh wants you to live! May Yahweh have mercy for the deceived for his word will reach them in time, for His Redeemer & Saviour, Yahshua, will shed his light and truth on us all. It is written, as is all. No condemnation here, only love for your soul for YHWH wants you to LIVE, through Yahshua Messiah! As I do. Seek Truth, Seek repentance, reflect on yourselves and embrace humility. Through Yahshua Messiah, may you find peace and unity in Yahweh. Repent! Rejoice in Rightousness! Live!
