Pip Millett – Running Lyrics (feat. Ghetts)

Haven't got anything
Dad told me from day one, "Just don't let 'em in"
[Verse 3: Pip Millett]
There's so much to lose
There's nothing to play with
Will you try to understand this? [Verse 1: Pip Millett]
Runnin', I'm always out of breath
Fightin' battles when I get shit off my chest
Down (Down)
I know what it feels like to be down, down, down
I know what it feels like to be
On the East side (Side), caught up in the current
Settled in the smog (Ah-ah)
I'm feelin' pretty foggy 'bout my feelings, 'bout myself
[Chorus: Pip Millett]
Black and free, I don't think that's a thing, no, no
(No, no)
I don't think that's a thing, no, no (No, no, no, no)
I don't think that's a thing, no, no (No, no, no, no, no)
(No, no, no, no)
No, no
I don't think that's a thing, no, no (No, no)
[Verse 2: Pip Millett & Ghetts]
Sufferin' is sexualised, fantasised
Do you find it pleasing? Can't slow down, gotta catch my breath
Gotta make sure that I make it
She'll tell me that I'm fakin'
She's lyin', let's face it
That bitch right there is basic
Not every girl is basic
Not every man's a racist
That's racy, I think you'll find that phrase is pretty dated
(You're testin' on my patience) Testin' on my patience
The way that shit, it weighs me down
[Chorus: Pip Millett]
Black and free, I don't think that's a thing, no, no
(No, no)
I don't think that's a thing, no, no (No, no, no, no)
I don't think that's a thing, no, no (No, no, no, no, no)
(No, no, no, no)
No, no
I don't think that's a thing, no, no (No, no)
[Outro: Pip Millett]
No, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no Pullin' on my hair, no, no (No, no)
Grippin' on my skin, no, no (No, no)
Playin' with your prey, no, no (No, no)
My life is not a game, no, no (No, no)
No, no
I don't think that's a thing, no, no
No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no
No, no, no, no
No, no (Yeah)
No
[Verse 2: Ghetts]
Another Black man lost, worried about what a handbag cost
While it cost to be Black
I got a price on my head, that's not any cap
F-Feds are behind, I feel like I'm wanted, dead or alive
Even after what I have accomplished, nobody said they'll be kind
Look at my skin, I'm fully akin
Tell me why you wanna put bullets within
Number one suspect 'cause of my colour
If I was another, couldn't be him
I got the melanin, melanin, melanin
Feds see me and get a rush of adrenaline
What have I got on me?
