Kano feat. Why Why Peaches Slaves Lyrics

[Hook 1: Why Why Peaches]
We could sit around and talk for days
About all the things that we would change
But we never thought we never thought
That we were the slaves

[Verse 1: Kano]
Ah, Runaway runaway underground deep
Release me from these shackles around feet
Old masters they don't own me
Treat artists like sheep
But they don't know me
Rap star rap star, have you any tunes?
Yes sir yes sir, three disks full
One for the radio and one for the states
And one for my people who live down the lane
Can't fool me born free M.I.A
But kill us over time, Ali Boombaye
Puppets on a string, insignificant
As people we've come a long way
But it ain't that different
Money makes the world go round Dead Presidents
Something like a spoon full of sugar to the medicine
Necessary evil, slave to the sterling
They run the world that we all just work in

[Hook 2: Why Why Peaches]
We could sit around and talk for days
About all the things that we would change
But we never thought we never thought
That we were the slaves
We could sit around and talk for days
About all the things that we would change
But we never thought we never thought
That we were the slaves

[Verse 2: Kano]
Look, pawns in the game
We don't make the checkmate
Front line of defense
Thats the modern day slave
Used for consumerism so we get pad
And give it straight back the boomerang play
Win-win for them
Come on folk lose-lose
Programmed like robots
Do what we're told too
The whole worlds singing
The same same song but changes ain't making them
Bracelets blinging
Gold chains swinging
Face tattooed up Lil Wayne tear dripping
Still in prison in this world we live in
So wade in the water children
No master
Escapism through music with no capture
Except the moment because I'll be on a Prince Protest
Before I become a slave bro
I'll be the artist formerly known as Kano

[Verse 3: Why Why Peaches]
After listening to the preacher
It seems that all they ever teach us
Is how to fear and fear it all
Till you fall

[Hook 3: Why Why Peaches]
We could sit around and talk for days
About all the things that we would change
But we never thought we never thought
That we were the slaves
We could sit around and talk for days
About all the things that we would change
But we never thought we never thought
That we were the slaves
