See Saw

from by Contra Code



A punch to the face
evicts her feet from shaky ground
Now she screams
We get used to the sound

Cause it's a scrap around here for every scrap of pavement
Without a clue where she'll land – Gentrification

What's the score?
Am I just playing the game?
What's it for? Seems insane just getting by
living in the middle of the city
I can't complain but I can think about the inequality
right in my face – don't know my place
living in the middle of the city

Some people ask what side of the fence I think I'm on, I tell em
there's no fucking fence here, just a city's broken see-saw

It's hard to see the sickness in the streets from 15 floors above
You got enough to know you're lucky, just don't raise a fuss
It's easy to dehumanize when you don't hear about the love
But it's all there, beyond assumptions tied to your address

What's wrong with us? We're not entitled to replace them
You don't own shit til you respect their land – Gentrification

Home is where the heart is
