Riz Ahmed – Fast Lava lyrics
[Verse 1]
Don't make me smash your melon up
Try throwing shade on melanin
Send them 7Up, I'm better bitter with the lemon in
They put their boots on our ground
I put my roots in their ground
I put my truth in this sound
I'll spit my truth and it's brown
I don't give a fuck about the cash you stack
With a crown on your skull, you ain't Basquiat
When the Prince of Denmark's the only boy pushing the benchmark
The white boys wanna be back
Brown; your planet's gonna be that
Them man frown, panic and wanted me out
But I'm outstanding cause I stand out
Where I was standing there's gonna be plaques
It's my house

I'll spit my truth and it's brown
I'll spit my truth and it's brown

[Verse 2]
Who made you as cool as me?
Who gave you jewellery?
Gave you real food to eat
Mogul to Mowgli
I'd better ask for it back, it's mine
Them bastards don't want a Pak to shine
Leave the tea leaves and spell out the sign
That-that-that-that-that's mine
They were trying to put me down, I'm not having that
Swam too far to drown, it's my habitat
Buried in the English field, they can't dig us out
Riots; we turned Bradford to Karbala
Just want a zoot, cup of tea and my country back
Porsche, a porch, mixed grill and sadaqah
Live with Mum, bought a Beemer
Cause everyone's a thief and roll on Eve's madina

I'll spit my truth and it's brown
