Santigold – No Paradise Lyrics

 

No Paradise Lyrics by Santigold

 

Won’t be waiting all my life
For no paradise

Won’t be waiting all my life
For no paradise

Everybody is not afraid
Everybody don’t know the way
Where the one just sink to the floor
Is where the other open the door up
I can tell you your change is here
I can tell you blind in your fear though
Bad enough we blinding our hearts
Just to live each day

People suffering, they suffering
Down and we keep shuffling
Don’t know where but go-going
There’s power in our struggle

People suffering, they suffering
Crush us and they crush again
Don’t know when to let go when
We struggle, struggle, we struggle

Won’t be waiting all my life
For no paradise

Won’t be waiting all my life
For no paradise

We don’t tell it what shape to take
Are we looking for another face
Well no matter, who are we to say
Anyway the future is here now
Waiting for us finally to see
It for all it’s possibility now
Covered in it’s dirt and it’s blood
Like a baby, we wrap it in love

People suffering, they suffering
down and we keep shuffling
Don’t know where but go-going
There’s power in our struggle

People suffering, they suffering
Crush us and they crush again
Don’t know when to let go when
We struggle, struggle, we struggle

Won’t be waiting all my life
For no paradise

Won’t be waiting all my life
For no paradise

Thieve, break, take
More power

Seize, lie, steal
More power

Cheat, hold us down
More power

See no way
To shake our power

People suffering, they suffering
Down and we keep shuffling
Don’t know where but go-going
There’s power in our struggle

People suffering, they suffering
Crush us and they crush again
Don’t know when to let go when
We struggle, struggle, we struggle

Won’t be waiting all my life
For no paradise

Won’t be waiting all my life
For no paradise
