Ivory Coast

Demo 2012


I was born on the Ivory Coast
But I miss my mother the most
“It’s a mystery,” she said
We be living but we be dead.
It’s enough to nail your head to a flaming post”
Ain’t going back to that Ivory Coast

I’m a driver here in London town
And I drag my heart around
Part beast and part machine
Half corruption and obscene
You must keep yourself serene or else you drown
There is heaven and there is hell in London town

I wanna die in my sweet baby’s arms
I have had my share of false alarms
There’s a hammer and a chain
Candy kisses and cocaine
You know the sacred and profane
Both have their charms
I wanna die in my sweet baby’s arms
