M.I.A. – Platforms lyrics

[Verse 1]
Neon lights on the dust on the ground on the bus
Dirty roads makes that scarf wrap a must
Rolling by scrolling for the future on the app
Data mine my mind like a diamond in the ruff

Platforms here's a train of thought
Getting to the bright side of me is why I fought
I'm gonna say what else have I got
Maybe there's glory in all the things I'm not

[Verse 2]
If oil is the god then the cranes all pray
The crude is so rude
Coz it makes the people pay
On the side of the road men make money
A flower for a dollar man
He wants a family
If I rose to power
It'll be a bouquet
Emoji a smiley
And say I'm ok
The tech dudes are the only ones having a good day
And talking is cheap
Coz they make it easy


[Verse 3]
Bounce, keep it bouncing
?? keep it on the run [x 3]
Those who love heat, yeah here comes the sun
Power to the people yeah, the light has never done
Searching for the bitches, yeah electric city ??
Politics, new kicks
