Brooklyn, we go hard
We on the look for the advantage, we work hard
And if we seem to rough it up a bit
We broke but we rich at heart
Pull ourselves up now we won't choke
It's our time, put the lights on us

War tactics, they make me sick
Reel your heart in run away with it
Smile on your face, undermine your back
Got guns for the strength they lack

So if you know another way
You can't look the other way
You know another way
Tell them so right to their face

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

I pay for what's called
Eccentricity and my wish to evolve
I hear them all say that I got heart
But not everything that it takes

Taint my mind but not my soul
Tell you I got fire
I won't sell it for no payroll
Let 'em hold me down

I know if I know another way
I can't look the other way
I know another way
I'll tell them so right to their face

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

Entirely, totally
Bring it all together, I want everything
If it's in the spills they had gossip that meant
We can't be poor folks waiting on a trickle with your hands out

I got a life that you can call a luck because it was a duty
You don't mean I ain't payin' dues, you stupid fuck
I'm more of a mind for reaching things that you can't
Just know I'm doing something you ain't, simple and plain

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine

We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
We think you're a joke
Shove your hope where it don't shine
