Knox Brown - No Slaves (feat. Anderson Paak) lyrics


[Verse 1: Knox Brown]
Calling, calling, they sit you down
Meeting after meeting they churn 'em out
All in my head, all in my city
Numerous ways to let you down
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
You can't touch a kettle, it's burning hot
Always left alone and no one's ever home
But only open up the door when opportunity knocks like...

[Hook: Knox Brown]
(Oh hey yeah)
Oh we don't wanna be slaves, we don't wanna be slaves
(Oh hey yeah)
No, not gonna stand it, not gonna stand it
(Oh hey yeah)
Oh we don't wanna be slaves, we don't wanna be slaves
(Oh hey yeah)
No, not gonna stand it, not gonna stand it

[Verse 2: Knox Brown]
Oh I keep falling, falling, and falling down
The meek shall rise about the ground
All in my mind, all in my city
Will find a million ways to drag you down
I know, I know, I said I know
Cause I've been told many times before
Always left alone and no one's ever home
But only open up the door when opportunity knocks like...

[Hook: Knox Brown]
(Oh hey yeah)
Oh we don't wanna be slaves, we don't wanna be slaves
(Oh hey yeah)
No, not gonna stand it, not gonna stand it
(Oh hey yeah)
Oh we don't wanna be slaves, we don't wanna be slaves
(Oh hey yeah)
No, not gonna stand it, not gonna stand it

[Verse 3: Anderson .Paak]
You spent your whole life working a nine to five
You put your dreams on hold for nickles and dimes
Don't you remember what it was you wanted in life?
Did you forget about the pennies you threw in the well wishing?
Your grave shift would be over, you dying inside
Oh you a slave to the rhythm, your body and mind prison
Now how do you find freedom?
You stuck in a bind needing
A break from the mundane is something divine
And we just wanna hear the misery
Ain't it a shame what we do just to do to the assembly
It can be so much better than what was given to me
Don't know how much more I can give 'em me
Something gotta give for me to be
I'm jumping off right into the sea

[Outro: Knox Brown]
We don't wanna be, we don't wanna be
Look we don't wanna be no slaves, no, no
We don't wanna be, we don't wanna be
Look we don't wanna be no slaves, no, no
We don't wanna be, we don't wanna be
Look we don't wanna be no slaves, no
