LOWKEY


Relatives Lyrics (ft. Logic)

The views expressed on this track are not directly those of lowkey or logic, we're just drawing attention to the lifestyles that some people lead



Lowkey: I was born in Birmancy, one of the south parts



Logic: And I was born in Bazara, southside of Iraq



Lowkey: We used to play football outside in the park



Logic: We used to dodge bullets outside in the dark



Lowkey: I never prayed, I was told there isn't a god



Logic: I prayed 5 times a day its like I lived in a mosque



Lowkey: Me, I'm easy with a pint and some cricket to watch



Logic: They sanctioned everything we got, so now it isn't a lot



Lowkey: My mum and dad worked hard, always had employment



Logic: My mom just left, and my dad got poisoned
I was young but I was told that the government did it



Lowkey: From my heart I can say that I love being British
I grew with 5 older, brothers and sisters



Logic: Yeah I had a lot of siblings but some have gone missing
Now it's just me and my little sis



Lowkey: Britain's got a lot of immigrants; they take our jobs everyday I swear I'm sick of it



Logic: My Uncles trying to get to Britain quick



Lowkey: I'm trying to find a job



Logic: Me I'm still illiterate



Lowkey: every 2 weeks I'm signing on



Logic: we only had school a little bit



Lowkey: I got kicked out of school very early, labelled as an idiot



Logic: Before my uncle left us, he gave me his gun



Lowkey: my girl just gave me a son



Logic: You see its hot where I live, everyday I bake in the sun



Lowkey: Its cold where I live so I read every page of the sun
And I'm getting mad, with what I look at and read



Logic: I just met a couple elders that are good on their deen



Lowkey: My dad told me joining army would be good for the P's



Logic: I started meeting, now I'm training with the mujahedeen
Because I've heard that the westerners are coming with bombs



Lowkey: I spent months in the regiment training up to be shot



Logic: But this is my land, my country, ill defend it till I pass



Lowkey: I just got the message, that they're sending me to Iraq



[Chorus]
Our pain is the same fam, its all relative
They cried the same tears, you cried for your relatives
And one way or another, my brother were all relatives
Home is where the heart is, yeah that's where it is (2X)



Lowkey: Now I'm in the south of Iraq, it's a smelly place
I don't know who to trust, everybody's got a hairy face



Logic: And Basra's a scary place, its worse than it used to be
They're dropping bombs everyday



Lowkey: Even little boys are shooting me



Logic: I shoot at white faces, and any green suit I see



Lowkey: Every regiments lost a couple of troops; we've lost 2 or 3



Logic: I still go to pray in the same place the mosque used to be



Lowkey: I see little kids starving to death, with no food to eat,
But an orders an order, we've got to clean the city up



Logic: they see how we're suffering, and still they don't pity us
They shoot us every day, tomorrows probably me



Lowkey: We're trying to help these bastards, but its like they don't want to be free



Logic: Yeah these people don't know what freedom is



Lowkey: I saw my colleague rape a woman against her will, but I didn't agree with it



Logic: I shot a soldier in the face, and then I had to run quick



Lowkey: My sergeant got shot in his face by some dumb young kid,
Now I just want to go home that's where my heart is



Logic: My heart is in Basra, and never will I part it



Lowkey: this wars going nowhere, tell me why did we start it?



Logic: I'm fighting regardless till I'm resting where Allah is



Lowkey: come to think of it, I should have never joined the army
And when I think about it, I don't hate these Iraqi's



Logic: Yeah bullets flying past me, I'm scared but I can't run,
I take my sister upstairs and get my uncles old gun



Lowkey: Don't know if its terrorists or just some civilians,
but I've been told to neutralize the threat up in that building



Logic: I see the soldiers they're about to pass, I take my pistol out and blast



Lowkey: A bullet whizzes by my face and tears my friends mouth apart,
I saw red, and starting shooting to make 'em all dead



Logic: I tried to guard my sister, but a bullet hit her forehead



Lowkey: I ran up the steps to see if I buried them all
But all I saw was my little sister dead on the floor



Our pain is the same fam, its all relative
They cried the same tears, you cried for your relatives
And one way or another, my brother were all relatives
Home is where the heart is, yeah that's where it is
