WHEN THE LIONS COME Lyrics

by Jon Bellion

feat. Blaque Keyz, C Dot Castro & Logic


[Intro/Hook: Jon Bellion]
When the lions come and they turn to fight
Will you lose your soul? will you lose your pride?
Cause the only thing they need is to smell a drop of fear inside
When the lions come, will you turn to fight?

[Verse 1: C Dot Castro]
Yeah, they tried to stop me
Tried to box me in the ring but I'm rocky
Indeed I'mma rumble
If the lions come I am, uh
Gonna be deemed new king of the jungle
I came from the bottom where it's not a problem
You know they got iron and chrome
And they firing at domes
And they hold more grams than retirement homes
I made it out all on my own
The homies know I was alone
But they be calling my phone If they need some money in other words I was a loan
Now I'm in the zone
Should have been another statistic
But I said fuck it I'll risk it
Looked death right in the face and I kissed it
No evidence and no trace of the lipstick
Now ain't nobody gonna stop me now
Ain't nobody gonna knock me down
I'm from the school of the hard knocks breaking doors down they trynna lock me out
If you stayed to fight then you might have won
But they caught your ass cause you tried to run
Me, Jon B, Blaque Keyz, in a fighting stance when the lions come

[Hook]

[Verse 2: Logic]
Yeah, lemme get it like this lemme rip it like this so sick don't spit
I vomit, bomb it, wearing the freshest of garments, blowing up yeah we the bombest, never cocky I'm just honest, reppin' artanis, woah
Maryland what I be reppin' the second I step in, I murder like weapon
Let me bring the tech and I'll hit ya like tekken and I'm gone
Whatever record I'm on, I just wreck it and I'm gone
R-A-Double T -P-A-C-K, V's up, all day, yeah we do it our way
I push white keys like Beethoven, while blaque keyz drop 16's, like the sistine, that's so mean
Hell yeah that's so clean
Can I get it, Lemme get it, I got to get it, I got to spit it from the heart, lemme tear it apart
Living the real life, everybody want to know what it feel like
Rock with a drop top, living on top, lemme get it, I get ready to pop, when they bopping they head, when they rocking' the bed
If I couldn't do this then I'd be dead

[Hook]

[Verse 3: Blaque Keyz]
Man it's unreasonable to think that Keyz won't leave MC's extinct
I never had a reason to, until now to get that spear and hit that Jeep?
See me swerving like Steve Irwin through herds of nervous MC's
I sink my teeth in their verses, each feature becomes a feast
Lay back, relax in my den, get paid from the royalties and bring it back to the pack and just let my family eat
I'm a predator on this beat, every metaphor is my prey
My roar rumbles your feet, I'll place your head on my tray
I'm letting your girl pat me, run fingers all through my mane
The pride of a dying breed with ferocity in my veins
At the top of the food chain, the philosophy is the same
So live properly, so one day they won't throw you in no cage
Keyz is king of the jungle no rumbling with the snakes
You running when I'm on the prowl
I pounce you can't keep the pace
You know I've been earning stripes got zebra print on my face
Got to make it apart of ya, see the world through my wardrobe like Narnia

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega

Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
