Ball And Chain Lyrics by Xavier Rudd (feat. J-MILLA)

 

I been ridin’ waves, child

Guilt through all my days, child

How this place was settled

The murder and the shame

Secrets been exposed, child

Truth we must uphold, child

Constant fight for justice

To pave the way for change

Living in denial

Goin’ through the same old cycle

Penal colony survival

Depending on your ball and chain

System gonna customize ya

The man, he gonna redefine ya

Gotta hunt like a night-time spider

Depending on your ball and chain

I’m a su—, I’m a survivor

Full-on energy provider

Sometimes you gotta improvise it

Depending on your ball and chain

System gonna customize ya

The man, he gonna redefine ya

Gotta hunt like a night-time spider

VIEW:  Shawn Mendes - Memories Lyrics

Depending on your ball and chain

Wisdom from the old school

Mixed up with the new school

To make up brand new colors

And paint the walls of change

Get among, gotta do your time now

Gotta take it in your stride now

Gotta make what you can come alive now

Depending on your ball and chain (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Yeah, every day, I lift my spirit up

But see, my soul is getting heavy

Pressure on my back and I can barely hold it steady

In a cold world, but daily I keep sweatin’

‘Cause I’m vulnerable, locked in a system that’s so deadly, uh

And now I’m racing to build a foundation

To raise a better life for the younger generation

Discriminations, we have to change those

VIEW:  Sonic Syndicate - So Addicted Lyrics

And mix up all the colors to form a rainbow

‘Cause this ball and chain has incarcerated my freedom

Born into the system and wasn’t given a reason

Same cycle continues and follows the same sequence

Screaming for a change and it’s bringing out inner demons

‘Cause this ball and chain got me feeling some type of way

Ball and chain got me feeling like I’m a slave

It’s like I’m swimming up, but an anchor’s got me drowned

But still, I survive and to keep alive, I gotta pray, pray, pray

And if such things were equal

We may find a need to

To mix up all the colors

Break down the walls of race

Get among, gotta do your time now

Gotta take it in your stride now

VIEW:  Coheed and Cambria – The Liars Club Lyrics

Gotta make what you can come alive now

Depending on your ball and chain

I’m a su—, I’m a survivor

A full-on energy provider

Sometimes you gotta improvise it

Depending on your ball and chain

System gonna customize ya

The man, he gonna redefine ya

Gotta hunt like a night-time spider

Depending on your ball and chain
