lyrics

Back to the hood

Back in the hood, we make no plans
Take no prisoners, hang about in bands
Back in the hood, we speak in tongues
Live like fools, feet slipping off the rungs

And I swear I’ll never make it back one day
Back to the hood where our dreams parade
Back to the hood, back to the hood, I go some days

Roaming wild, with the birds and the bees
Raising our stakes, and skinning our knees
We bury the elders, then dig up their bones
As if to prove there is nothing to show

And I make a stand but I cannot make it pay
Can’t pay my way, back to the hood one day
Back to the hood, back to the hood, doesn’t matter anyway

Falling back, falling back, falling back, falling back

I see the photos, it’s been a while
See how you’ve all, clearly aged in style
Then the wind picks up and blows it all away
Silver threads of light, yet piercing the grey

And I swear I’ll never make it back one day
Back to the hood where our dreams parade
Back to the hood, back to the hood, I go some days

Falling back, falling back, falling back, falling back
