Blood Orange

"Shine"

[Verse 1: Danny Brown]
.19s, but I keep a plain though
Leather inside, dark-tinted window
Wood-grain wheel, tell me how you really feel
Ride past all the kids, yellin' out, "Bingo"
Talk a good game, Trey Wingo
Speak in code so nobody know the lingo
Life like a dice game, ain't no casino
Street life, contra, ain't no cheat code
Everyday on the line like a free throw
sh*t weak, like the knees on D. Rose
I was taught, "Look out for your people"
Meet Heaven and you gotta know evil
Heart of a lion, eye of a eagle
Life a movie, but ain't no sequel
Switch lanes in that new thing
Got on that red line while I'm playing Flock of Seagulls
So, no way we could ever be equal
In the hay stack, I was that needle
Hold it in, thinkin' no one will believe you
Lose it all in a second, like #MeToo
The whole world is evil
Gun shots echo, never be peaceful
Smokin' diesel to forget it all
If I don't do nothin', I'ma ball

[Pre-Chorus: Danny Brown]
Ayy (Ayy), gotta get what's mine
Ayy (Ayy), before I lose my mind
Ayy (Ayy), like I'm runnin' out of time
Ayy (Ayy), shine light, man, shine (Shine)

[Chorus: Blood Orange]
Break down, lock down, run up on a ball (Nothing that you used to)
Standing on the corner, if you see me, I'ma ball
Break down, lock down, run up on a ball (Nothing I can pass to walk alone)
Standing on the corner, if you see me, I'ma ball
Break down, lock down, run up on a ball (Shinin' on myself, so)
Standing on the corner, if you see me, I'ma ball
Break down, lock down, run up on a ball (Nothing can break down the simple floor)
Down on the corner, if you see me, I'ma ball

[Verse 2: Danny Brown]
Ayy, gotta ball 'til you fall
In a system that's designed, one strike, take it all
Ayy, all it take, one call
Pray you lose it all, one second, all gone
Ayy, know you feelin' all alone
But who can you turn to when things go wrong?
Ayy, it's the plot all along
Push you down the wrong path, the statistics have shown
Everything that I known turned out to be lies
Found out when I was grown so I shared that light
On these dark undertones, had a n*gga head gone
Why they buy the diamonds and the car with shiny chrome
My fault, all alone in the scheme of it all
Played like a bong, had to stay strong
Got my head above water, had to keep movin' on
Had my head above water, had to keep movin' on

[Pre-Chorus: Danny Brown]
Ayy (Ayy), gotta get what's mine
Ayy (Ayy), before I lose my mind
Ayy (Ayy), like I'm runnin' out of time
Ayy (Ayy), shine light, man, shine (Shine)

[Chorus: Blood Orange]
Break down, lock down, run up on a ball (Nothing that you used to)
Standing on the corner, if you see me, I'ma ball
Break down, lock down, run up on a ball (Nothing I can pass to walk alone)
Standing on the corner, if you see me, I'ma ball
Break down, lock down, run up on a ball (Shinin' on myself, so)
Standing on the corner, if you see me, I'ma ball
Break down, lock down, run up on a ball (Nothing can break down the simple floor)
Down on the corner, if you see me, I'ma ball

[Outro: Blood Orange]
The dream is realized, my heart skips a beat
I'm tyin' my feet, the baby can't sleep
Defeat the sun, reach, the furthest relax
The weed is uncertain, why men attacked
Facts is unlocked, dress is untied
Mind could explode, time to cut ties
