ONE DAY AS A LION


Ocean View Lyrics

Uh

Blood done been running down streets flood with beats
Pepper spray over cracked concrete, so
So vicious make a rich mans neck split
Underworld 'bout to wreck shit, bet this
Banks closed, stomachs churnin'
Lines and rows, cops blastin' out church windows
They heard word of two on a terror list
Hid in the pews, just two city terrace kids
One held a piece just for peace of mind
The other was spittin' poems, blowin' minds on the picket line
Barricades lay cross made with bumpers and burning tires
And you could smell the exhaust
And you could hear the kids scream: "Don't play us, too close"
You can have the mic or the heater but you can't hold both

And they were both...
And they were both...

Ocean of tears rise - rise a flame to tear them down
Ocean of past crimes, now - fill our hearts to tear them down

The water main's cut off, panic hit the manor of the mayor who's soft
Word hit the streets that the cops got off
They shook to rhythm of heaters that burned like claps of thunder
You turn to look at vengeance returned that shatter control
After the whole shock of the news that a bomb hit the bridge at Broadway
Gridlock full stop every exit way from Chavez to Main, downtown was the same
Every corner a flame with lines of people stripped of they clothes
Freeze, hold up your ID's, their houses burned as they watched
The colonel looked at his clock and they were all...

And they were all...
And they were all...

Ocean of tears rise - rise a flame to tear them down
Ocean of past crimes, now - fill our hearts to tear them down

Ocean of tears rise - rise a flame to tear them down
Ocean of past crimes, now - fill our hearts to tear them down

Rise a flame - to tear them down
Rise a flame - to tear them down
Rise a flame - to tear them down
Rise a flame - to tear them down
Rise a flame - to tear them down
Rise a flame - to tear them down
To tear them down
To tear them down
