Monsters You Made Lyrics by BURNA BOY

Calling me a monster
Calling us fake
No way, no way, no way
Calling me a monster
Just ‘cause we say

We’re from the block where it rains
Where we create barricades
Keep opposition away 
That’s why we are strapped with the K’s

Don’t get kidnapped from your place
Cuz it could happen today
Not knowing how to behave 
That is a sign that you may
Just loose your life what a waste
Your body found in a lake 

You fucked around and the fisherman 
Found you drowning for days
You know we come from a place 
Where people smile but it is fake 
How could they smile if you look around 
They are surrounded by pain

I’ve seen the sky turn to grey
It took the light from the day
It’s like the heads of the state 
Ain’t comprehending the hate 
That the oppressed generate
When they’ve been working like slaves

To get some minimum wage 
You turn around and you blame 
Them for their anger and rage
Put them in shackles and chains
Because of what they became
WE ARE THE MONSTERS YOU MADE

Calling me a monster, calling us fake 
You make the minotaur the dinosaur wake
Calling me a monster, just ‘cause we say
No way, no way, no way
Calling me a monster, make no mistake
That there’s only so much that you can take
La di da do di da do day
We are the monsters you made

I bet they thought it was cool
Probably thought we was fools
When we would break all the rules 
And skip them classes in school

Because the teacher dem teaching what the white man dem teaching dem European teachings in my African school
So fuck dem classes in school 
Fuck mongo park and the fools 

That said they found river niger 
They’ve been lying to you
Aint no denying the truth
See what im tryin to do

Is draw the line for the mothers crying
We’re dying as youths
Come walk a mile in my shoes
See if you smile at the truth
See if you digest your food
That’s when you might have a clue
Of what the fuck we go through
Your fucking lucky if you

Live through the day better pray 
That God always staying with you
Aint fucking safe anyday the reaper 
‘ll be coming for you

We need a change and it 
Aint no way ima take an excuse
My niggaz finding a way
Or fucking smile in the grave
This is the price that you pay
WE ARE THE MONSTERS YOU MADE

Calling me a monster, calling us fake 
You make the minotaur the dinosaur wake
Calling me a monster, just ‘cause we say
No way, no way, no way

Calling me a monster, make no mistake
That there’s only so much that you can take
La di da do di da do day
We are the monsters you made
