Looptroop Rockers – The Building lyrics

Haha, in the building, looptroop rockers!

Hey now I can't take another day
There's a feeling in the air and I can't find the words to say
Chaos in the building where we stay
We're living in a house that we can't wait to set aflame

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Hey now, hey now, hey now

And I ain't never seen my neighbours from the top floor
But judging from the car they drive I know they're not poor
And I could be mistaken because I'm not sure
But I got this little hunch they're the ones callin the cops four
Times last week saying I'm disturbing the peace
Cus I was playing my music and they heard some loud screams
So my neighbour the cop
Who I suspect of beating his wife had to tell me to stop
And I wish I had the guts to tell him about the noise from his apartment
But that's their business that I don't get involved with
So I look the other way trying to climb higher
Cus if I reach the top I think I could escape the fire

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Hey now, hey now, hey now

I wonder what they're doing tonight
I wonder if they're free-ye-ye-ye
I think I hear my neighbours fighting through the thin walls
So what am I to do with tonight
How can I get free-ye-ye-ye
I'm bouncin on the walls like I'm a human pin ball

Burn it down...

I sit by my window see this kid on the corner hustle
The belt wrapped around his knuckles ready to swing the buckle
I'm thinking why they fighting each other they're in the same school
Probably live next to each other under the same roof
I bet they're from my building yeah I bet that kid's dad's
The drunk I pass on my way up the stairs real sad
I'm sure hey blame him for the tags in the hallway
The robberies not seeing the reason he's outside all day
Like they came from nowhere with their bad intentions
They grew up in this place we made them who they are
I can see they're so scared could use some attention
This house can be a maze without a guiding star

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Hey now, hey now, hey now

I wonder what they're doing tonight
I wonder if they're free-ye-ye-ye
Burn it down
So what am I to do with tonight
Burn it down
Hey now, hey now, hey now
Burn it...
