Lyrics

Well the city keeps burnin’
As the world keeps turnin’
I just keep holdin’ on
Some people think it’s ending
The world’s still spinnin’
I just keep holdin’ on

The average Joe’ll run his mouth when he’s got nothin’ to say
I got problems I’m tryin’ to solve ‘em livin day to day
Even my pops threatened to take me out like my name was Marvin Gaye
I just keep movin’ on I write a song
But it’s only freedom of speech if you watch what you say
You could be the hardest realest killer from around the way
But watch that ass quick fast come up M.I.A
If you get on the wrong side of the C.I.A.

And the city keeps burnin’
As the world keeps turnin’
I just keep holdin’ on
Some people think it’s ending
The world’s still spinnin’
I just keep holdin’ on

And I got over a million stories behind what you see
Raised in what was kill-a-nigga northwest D.C.
Where some youngins got sentenced to 5 got out in 3
Back in the hood givin’ bay mamas H.I.V.
While it’s shake this and suck that
And spend that cash
Money, guns, cars some pussy
And a big fat stack
Like you can snort an ounce a coke
And think there won’t be no crash
I guess we’ll ride or die ‘til we run out of gas

And the city keeps burnin’
As the world keeps turnin’
I just keep holdin’ on
Some people think it’s ending
The world’s still spinnin’
I just keep holdin’ on

And it’s not that I’m afraid to let go of this life I live
When it’s my time to go baby I’m gone
I’m gone on
But in the meantime while we’re here
Can we just agree not to fuck it up for everyone else?


Well the city keeps burnin’
As the world keeps turnin’
I just keep holdin’ on
Some people think it’s ending
The world’s still spinnin’
I just keep holdin’ on

‘Cause I got a love so sweet
She’s like sugarcane
When she cry it’s like the sky traded sunshine for rain
Sometimes I drive my baby crazy tryin’ to keep me sane
And we just keep holdin’ on just like the song
Now baby shake that ass and clap it like a round of applause
Can never wait to get you home and get you out of them draws
I’ll fly you to Afghanistan where it’s illegal to fuck you in the ass
When I feel like breaking the law

And the city keeps burnin’
As the world keeps turnin’
I just keep holdin’ on
Some people think it’s ending
The world’s still spinnin’
I just keep holdin’ on
