Open Mike Eagle – Brick Body Complex

Open Mike Eagle – Brick Body Complex

[Hook]
Don’t call me nigga or rapper
My motherfucking name is Michael Eagle, I’m sovereign
I’m from a line of ghetto superheroes, I holla
I got something to bring to your attention, attention, attention, attention, attention
I promise you I will never fit in your descriptions, I’m giant
Don’t let nobody tell you nothing different, they lyin’
A giant and my body is a building, a building, a building, a building

[Verse 1]
No surfaces underground
No sound, but I’m calling home
City broke in my brother’s town
Now I’m standing here all alone
Some weather my monochrome
And my hollow bones David Bowie told me
I’m not alone, and I’m overgrown
But these model homes
Still here, feels hot-‘n-cold
Still here, feel my body move
Still standing on Cottage Grove
Still do what I gotta do
Stone tablet on stone tablet
I’m old granite, I’m not a tomb
Y’all can move this whole planet
I’ll hold fast and I follow through
I promise you

[Chorus]
There because the shelters, basement, hallways
Early morning Sunday, midnight, all day
Do what the adults say, don’t engage in horseplay
People speak in tongues

[Hook]
Don’t call me nigga or rapper
My motherfucking name is Michael Eagle, I’m sovereign
I’m from a line of ghetto superheroes, I holla
I got something to bring to your attention, attention, attention, attention, attention
I promise you I will never fit in your descriptions, I’m giant
Don’t let nobody tell you nothing different, they lyin’
A giant and my body is a building, a building, a building, a building

[Verse 2]
My under name is 3-9-2-5
Make sure that my story’s told
Sixteen is so stories high
Constructed fifty five years ago
Winter weather yeah here we go
Shy Town and my building cold
Stood here for ten million snows
Wind chilled is all in my bones
Indivisible, indivisible
Kids and criminals young and old
No radiator my dungeon coal
Done the hump, but use something slow
Twenty down and just one to go
City say they gonna knock me down
Still wearing my iron hood
Told ya’ll won’t stop me now

[Hook]
Don’t call me nigga or rapper
My motherfucking name is Michael Eagle, I’m sovereign
I’m from a line of ghetto superheroes, I holla
I got something to bring to your attention, attention, attention, attention, attention
I promise you I will never fit in your descriptions, I’m giant
Don’t let nobody tell you nothing different, they lyin’
A giant and my body is a building, a building, a building, a building

[Chorus]
There because the shelters, basement, hallways
Early morning Sunday, midnight, all day
Do what the adults say, don’t engage in horseplay
People speak in tongues

Momma’s in the basement smokin’ something
We grew up in hazes, ride checks, dungeons
Graduation lunches, tried to make us something
See what we’ve become

[Hook]
Don’t call me nigga or rapper
My motherfucking name is Michael Eagle, I’m sovereign
I’m from a line of ghetto superheroes, I holla
I got something to bring to your attention, attention, attention, attention, attention
I promise you I will never fit in your descriptions, I’m giant
Don’t let nobody tell you nothing different, they lyin’
A giant and my body is a building, a building, a building, a building
