​City Of Cold

This song is by Bmike.

If you are,
Listening to this,
Like right now, if you're listening to this,
I need you to close your eyes.
And I'm not just saying that figuratively,
I need you to literately close your eyes.

I'd like to welcome you all,
To the city... Of cold.


Now could you try and just imagine waking up to a planet,
Where education's too expensive, so you can't understand it?
Tryna wipe away the tears where all the pain cannot be bandaged,
Plus you don't know if you eat today and gain an advantage.

You see the droughts always make it tough,
Clouds do not rain enough,
And as a child you're left there scared and wondering which way is up,
Walking 20 miles in the blistering cold,
Just for a bucket of some water for your family at home.

But when you get back,
Your family's nowhere in sight,
You ask around if anybody's seen or heard from them, right?
But every person that you ask has no idea and despite,
Your every effort that you make,
You haven't seen them tonight.

Just when you're hyperventilating,
And you're smothered in fear,
But then your family returns home without your mother in tears,

You say, "Daddy, where's Mommy? What if she's all alone?"
He says, "Mommy died today from dehydration at home."

Damn I wish I had a bite to eat,
I'll bury the rest of my family,
And I have no fight, left in me.
Won't you put a blanket over me?
So when the going gets tough,
And the tough gets going,
Just play this song, and you'll keep on goin',
In the City of Cold,
The city of Cold,
The City of Cold
They never sleep in the city of cold.

You fall to the ground,
You're losing all hope,
And you feel like you've just had enough,
Then you just gotta take it on the chin,
And fix your bottom lip,
Cause there's no way that imma let you give up.

Now could you try and just imagine waking up to a vision,
Where your kids are always starving, so you're scared to admit it.
'Cause you're a Mother,
And that means,
That you're obliged, to provide,
For yourself, and for your kids, so you strive to survive.

But you can't,
And as a parent, now you feel like you have failed,
To give your children the necessities, they need to prevail,
So you deprive yourself of food, and even water for a couple,
Days or even weeks, so you can save them from the struggle.

And 1 specific morning, you just feel like it's the end,
But you don't want your child to see you in this state, so you pretend,
Like everything is still okay,
But it's not,
So you send your little boy to get some water,
For your family of 10.

And when he's back,
He yells repeatedly for Mommy, but instead,
He left to face the news about her passing out and now she's dead, see,
You may not see that you're lucky, it's true,
So be appreciative,
Cause someone else would love to be you.

I just,

I wish I had a bite to eat,
I'll bury the rest of my family,
And I got no fight, left in me.
Won't you put a blanket over me?
So when the going gets tough,
And the tough gets going,
Just play this song, and you'll keep on going,
In the City of Cold,
The city of Cold,
The City of Cold
They never sleep in the city of cold.

Damn I wish I had a bite to eat (I wish I had a bite to eat),
I'll bury the rest of my family (whoa),
And I got no fight, left in me (no fight, left in me).
Won't you put a blanket over me?
So when the going gets tough,
and the tough gets going,
Just play this song, and you'll keep on going,
In the City of Cold,

The city of Cold (Hey~),
The City of Cold (Hey~),
They never sleep in the city of cold.

Cause, Damn I wish I had a bite to eat,
I'll bury the rest of my family (whoa),
And I got no fight, left in me (no no).
Won't you put a blanket over me?
So when the going gets tough,
And the tough gets going,
Just play this song, and you'll keep on going,
In the City of Cold,
The city of Cold,
The City of Cold
They never sleep in the city of cold.
