M.I.A. – Borders lyrics

[Intro]
Freedom, 'I'dom, 'Me'dom
Where's your 'We'dom?
This world needs a brand new 'Re'dom
We'dom - the key
We'dom the key'dom to life!
Let's be 'dem
We'dom smart phones
Don't be dumb!

[Verse 1]
Borders (What's up with that?)
Politics (What's up with that?)
Police shots (What's up with that?)
Identities (What's up with that?)
Your privilege (What's up with that?)
Broke people (What's up with that?)
Boat people (What's up with that?)
The realness (What's up with that?)
The new world (What's up with that?)
Am gonna keep up on all that

[Hook]
Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah fuck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western
Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah fuck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western

[Verse 2]
Queen (What's up with that?)
Killing it (What's up with that?)
Slaying it (What's up with that?)
Your goals (What's up with that?)
Being bae (What's up with that?)
Making money (What's up with that?)
Breaking internet (What's up with that?)
Love wins (What's up with that?)
Living it (What's up with that?)
Being real (What's up with that?)

[Hook]
Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah fuck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western
Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah fuck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western

[Bridge]
We representing peeps, they don't play us on the FM
We talkin' in our sleep, they still listen on a system
We sittin' on a stoop
Where we get a scoop
This is how we keep it cool
This is how we do
We representing peeps, they don't play us on the FM
We talkin' in our sleep, they still listen on a system
We sittin' on a stoop
Where we get a scoop
This is how we keep it cool
This is how we do

[Verse 3]
Egos (What's up with that?)
Your values (What's up with that?)
Your beliefs (What's up with that?)
Your families (What's up with that?)
Histories (What's up with that?)
Your future (What's up with that?)
My boys (What's up with that?)
My girls (What's up with that?)
Freedom (What's up with that?)
Your power (What's up with that?)

[Hook]
Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah fuck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western
Guns blow doors to the system
Yeah fuck 'em when we say we're not with them
We're solid and we don't need to kick them
This is North, South, East and Western

[Bridge]
We representing peeps, they don't play us on the FM
We talkin' in our sleep, they still listen on a system
We sittin' on a stoop
Where we get a scoop
This is how we keep it cool
This is how we do
We representing peeps, they don't play us on the FM
We talkin' in our sleep, they still listen on a system
We sittin' on a stoop
Where we get a scoop
This is how we keep it cool
This is how we do

[Outro]
Gonna keep up on all that
Gonna be doing it like that
