Monsters You Made (feat. Chris Martin) - Burna Boy feat. Chris Martin

If the government refuse to develop the region
And continue the marginalisation and injustice
The youths and the next people coming after us
But it will be more brutal than what we have done

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
'Cause it could happen today

Not knowing how to behave
That is a sign that you may
Just lose your life, what a waste
Your body found in a lake
You f- around and the fisherman
Found you drowning for days
You know we come from a place
Where people smile but it's fake

How could they smile?
If you look around they 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, la-da-do, di-da, la-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 f- dem classes in school
F- mongo park and the fools
That said they found river Niger
They've been lying to you
Ain't no denying the truth
See what I'm 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 f- we go through
You're f- lucky if you
Live through the day, better pray that God always staying with you

Ain't f- safe anyday, the reaper'll be coming for you
We need a change and it ain't no way I'ma take an excuse
My n- finding a way
Or f- 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, la-da-do, di-da, la-do-day
We are the monsters you made

Since we met your people 500 years ago
Look at us, we have given everything
You are still taking
In exchange for that, we have got nothing
Nothing and you know it
But don't you think that this is over now?
Over where?
Is it over?
