Borders lyrics

[M.I.A]
Freedom
I don't need ‘em
Where's your rhythm?
This world needs a brand new rhythm
We done the key
We done them key them to lie
Let’s beat ‘em
We them smartphones done beat ‘em

Borders
What's up with that?
Politics
What's up with that?
Police shots
What's up with that?
Identities
What's up with that?
Your privilege
What's up with that?
Broke people
What's up with that?
Boat people
What's up with that?
The realness
What's up with that?
The new world
What's up with that?
I'm gonna keep up on all that

Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah f*ck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western


Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah f*ck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western

Queen
What's up with that?
Killin' it
What's up with that?
Slayin' it
What's up with that?
Your goals
What's up with that?
Bein' bae
What's up with that?
Makin' money
What's up with that?
Breakin' internet
What's up with that?
Love wins
What's up with that?
Livin' it
What's up with that?
Bein' real
What's up with that?

Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah f*ck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western

We're representing peeps
Let them play us on the air
When we're talking in our sleep, does it listen on a system?
We're sittin' in the stoop
Where we get our scoop
This is how we keep it cool and this is how we do

We're representing peeps
Let them play us on the air
When we're talking in our sleep, does it listen on a system?
We're sittin' in the stoop
Where we get our scoop
This is how we keep it cool and this is how we do

What's up with that?
Your values
What's up with that?
Your beliefs
What's up with that?
Your families
What's up with that?
History
What's up with that?
Your future
What's up with that?
My boys
What's up with that?
My girls
What's up with that?
Freedom
What's up with that?
Your power
What's up with that?

Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah f*ck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western

Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah f*ck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western

We're representing peeps
Let them play us on the air
When we're talking in our sleep, does it listen on a system?
We're sittin' in the stoop
Where we get our scoop
This is how we keep it cool and this is how we do

We're representing peeps
Let them play us on the air
When we're talking in our sleep, does it listen on a system?
We're sittin' in the stoop
Where we get our scoop
This is how we keep it cool and this is how we do

Gonna keep up on all that
Gonna be doing it like that
