Tune-yards – Left Behind lyrics

My mind

This place has really changed it's ways
Luckily there's only really rich folk living here
Remember what you used to do to me?
Remember the way it used to be?
Cruisin' in the block
Burnin' like it was all meant to be
Burnin' all the rubber in the fucking land of the free

Nikki Nikki Nack
She told me "never bend back"
That Nikki Nikki Nack
Turn her around and spit on her back
We said we wouldn't let 'em take our soil
We said we wouldn't let 'em take our soil
These days don't it just make your blood boil
We said we'd never let 'em take our soil

Been
Left behind
Been, been been

My my
On my mind

This place has really changed it's ways
And it's been ruined by the boats of rich folks coming here
Remember what he used to do to me?
Remember the way it used to be?
Micky D milkshake and a cigarette
Every Sunday a little bit of lightning
Good ol' Michael Mack
He said we'd better fight back
Checkered suit and tie to match
Then turned around and shot him in his back
We said we wouldn't let 'em take our soil
We said we wouldn't let 'em take our soil
With a swipe and a poke the land that we toiled
We said we'd wouldn't let 'em take our soil

Been
Left behind
Been, been been

My my
On my mind

Been
Left behind
Been, been been
[X3]

Holiday, holiday
Let's go crazy
[X5]

Now I'll never know
What's going on

Been
Left behind
Been, been been

Holiday, holiday
Let's go crazy
[X19]
