Sampa The Great – Time's Up lyrics
Sampa
Tick, Tock *5

Yuh
Time’s up motherfucker

Tick, Tock *5
-
Yah
It’s the return black excellence
Don’t sit next to us
Lay it down like scripture
Jah bless God invest in us
Blackface industry
Lying don’t invest in me
Only want the money off our backs
Like history

Krown
In the industry I’m not a slave on a record
I rose brave call it blessings
Acute angle out the rat race
I keep from going under
Time ticking for families holding the spears
Deception is equity used to buy your melody, all I hear

[Chorus]
I seen the industry
Kill dreams of a dreamer *3

I seen the industry scheme
And it’s a killer

I seen the industry
Kill dreams of a dreamer *2
I seen the industry scheme
And it’s a killer
It’s a master plan to break you
I’m the scheme
They the schemer

Sampa
Yuh
Time’s up
Black republic
Want all my work republished
How many times
I inspired your rhymes
Then you redubbed it
We the inspiration
We the motivation
Take our ideas and then you resell it
In variations

Krown
The hour glass I’ma crack it
The fatter the cream the blacker the talent
I’m taking matters in hands

Sampa
I’d rather challenge
The industry
Got no dignity
Putting my fam up
Next to me
Searching for their diversity
Nervous
You know that I can see

Krown
All is I see is a bunch of mechanical breakdown
Do it till the planet break down
On a mission to free ourselves
Verbally medicated put on the shelf
We not for sale neither asking for help
And I ain’t asking for help

We not asking for help

Sampa
We not for sale
Not asking for help!
Not out to get you
Or in rage
We just searching for self
Go fuck yourself

Fuck the game
Fuck the playing
Fuck the aud-ience

Fuck the dance
Fuck the list
Fuck the aria’s

[Chorus]
Cos
I’ve seen the industry
Kill dreams of a dreamer *3
And I’ve seen the industry scheme
And it’s a killer

And I’ve seen the industry
Kill the dreams of a dreamer *2
And I’ve seen the industry scheme
And it’s a killer
It’s a master plan to break you
I’m the scheme
And they the schemer

Tick, Tock
Tick, Tock *6
Tick

Time’s up motherfucker *4
