Daren Todd – Fountains Lyrics

(Swim in the fountains, nigga, swim in the fountains)

Verse 1:

Spent a month trine find the placement
Every high and low feeling full and vacant
For the time it’s taken cause I started tired
Grip the wheel in case I loose the tires
When we pass the line of fire, I see just eyes
Split second ‘fore the shots are fired
Just guessing but I aim to kill
Know the danger’s real
But the stakes were higher when the rent was due last month
And I saved all that shit in my shoe last month
When I kept making waves crash through last month
And I learned how to swim passed through last month
Now what’s the issue when the paper’s gone?
Zone right into every lane but one
Between your thighs where I just can’t miss you
But I just can’t fix you less we become one

Hook:

I talked about reality, plugged in like a USB
Texting, driving, gravity could me into all I see
Flashing lights, those pretty cars, the city in the valley
All my people standing ’round me but the room just isn’t crowded
See, motherfuckers drowning struggling tryna drink the fountain water
Look at all the pennies under, bout a thousand coins, bout a thousand wishes
See the answers know the vision, know the chances of me getting everything that I demanded isn’t perfect so I’m gonna built it for myself because I’m worth it

Verse 2:

Babies drinking dirty water crying, I been wondering why the news been lying, all this marching
Now you see us tryna change the systems, trine end the violence, kill the silence
Oh hearken, to my voice, just like all those who have no choice
When the system screws them, turn to violence just to try to make it
Try to find a way to the New Jerusalem

Bridge:

We are rightly alarmed
We won’t give up our arms
We just throw up our hands
And pray they won’t do us harm

Hook:

I talked about reality, plugged in like a USB
Texting, driving, gravity could me into all I see
Flashing lights, those pretty cars, the city in the valley
All my people standing ’round me but the room just isn’t crowded
See, motherfuckers drowning struggling tryna drink the fountain water
Look at all the pennies under, bout a thousand coins, bout a thousand wishes
See the answers know the vision, know the chances of me getting everything that I demanded isn’t perfect so I’m gonna built it for myself because I’m worth it
