​Break The Chain

This song is by Lupe Fiasco and appears on the album Lasers (2011).

I waited all my life to play
I still can't find a way
But if I work it one more day
I might just break the Chain
I might just break the Chain
I might just break the Chain

Lupe Fiasco [Verse 1]
Freedom, we can use some of that especially where we from
Where we grew up like a green thumb
It's like a criminal is the only thing you can become
Look at what I became
Something like a phenom, nothin' but a g thang
Things I've seen when I'm looking out of these frames
Pictures I painted on the walls where we hang
From the trees we hung
Strange fruit man look at how we swung
How the hell you gonna tell us something
We ain't have a father
How to try to grow up and be one
See umm feel it in my bones
That I'm sittin' on a throne
Like a killer with a chrome
When I spit another poem
Shed a whole lot of light on a little bit of home

I waited all my life to play
I still can't find a way
But if I work it one more day
I might just break the Chain
I might just break the Chain
I might just break the Chain

Sway:
Super Swah, the cape remains, thought I was M.I.A no Paper Planes,
I'm fly plus I don't write no more, it's all off of the top I shaved the braids
And stayed sharp mother knew how to raise-a-blade (Razor Blade)
I paid my dues now I wait for change and the flows so rude it goes without...
Ask Lupe I'm Sucre, I aid the Break
Quick to cut off any baggage like some samurai I like to travel light
I've gotta leave you at home Delilah
This is Samson-ite
No case for the police
Said I know Killah's, I never seen them
Ghostface, only thing I'm watching is my Panerai
I've got an alibi
I was in Chicago taking pics, call me Camera Chi

I waited all my life to play
I still can't find a way
But if I work it one more day
I might just break the Chain
I might just break the Chain
I might just break the Chain

Chain broke, you ain't make a rep for your chain smoke
No cigarrettes on my plane, yo
Stunt your ham bones from the game though
Put it on mine, take a long time
B.A. Baracus is how I'm livin' online
On a webisode like let's go let 'em know
That I put up the footage that I'm takin' your shine
Wanna see the real change? look in your mind
Your brain look like Hemingway, brotha?
Overgrow, overload, Wrote this so
Niggas playing games in the hood they got you sucka
Playa thinkin' that its cool to be a pimp still
We gon' set it free like a fish in a ??
Take this home, rearrange it, change it
Danger, Sway-zer, Lupe Laser. Pow!

I waited all my life to play
I still can't find a way
But if I work it one more day
I might just break the Chain
I might just break the Chain
I might just break the Chain
