Lyrics:
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

  2. We're kinda of monsters being trained through the scars of all fuckeries from the imperialists and the allies african govs

    As Patrice Lumumba said, one day, the history will have a word, different from what is thought in UN, in Washington, Paris or Brussels, but the history that will be thought in countries freed of colonialism and their puppets. Africa will write its own history. A history of glory and dignity.

    I am Pan-Africanist and proud of the african blood running in my big veins.

    Down Angola, my country, i didn't know that Burna where one of mines.

    The African Revolution is on way, coming soon.

  3. The songs is nice 👍 but Africa needs to develop their mind !! On my research Nigeria 🇳🇬 is the problem of Africa, with their 200 million population they can build Africa it means 200 million with out sense of scientific project, every over populated country in every continent country the continent !! In Africa Nigeria 🇳🇬 is the most populated in Africa but they escaping from their country trying to disturb other countries with their population instead of them using their Human Resources

  4. This is a strong message to those concerned. You shall someday hear from the future. You’ve made bleeding monsters already and you’re still making more.
    You will leave (maybe escape a little), but your innocent ones will see the wrath of the monsters you’ve made and still making.

  5. I am glad He finally did a song that points out the ills in the society. If other big artistes can do like this, just like Eedris Abdulkarim has been shouting and lamenting then we all are good to go. I am glad he took Eedris’ advice

    More grease to your Elbow Burna Boy

    Remain blessed
