lyrics

[Verse 1]
They tell you love don’t cost a thing
Them folks all got diamond rings
And they say it’s the punch
That you don’t see coming
They can’t hit me if I don’t stop running

[Chorus]
We are what they aren’t
We do what they don’t
We love how we live
We live how they won’t
We say what we say
And we don’t give a damn
We ain’t living no Promised Land
Until the day that we die they drink from our cup
Sell us a lie, and we buy it up
I’m just a fool who understands
We ain’t living in no Promised Land
We ain’t living in no Promised Land
We ain’t living in no Promised Land

[Verse 1]
They say work real hard and it all works out
From their penthouse suite or their spot uptown
I can hear the sound of the footsteps coming
Yeah but they can’t hurt me if I don’t fear nothin’

[Chorus]
We are what they aren’t
We do what they don’t
We love how we live
We live how they won’t
We say what we say
And we don’t give a damn
We ain’t living no Promised land
Until the day that we die they drink from our cup
Sell us a lie, and we buy it up
I’m just a fool who understands
We ain’t living in no Promised Land
We ain’t living in no Promised Land
We ain’t living in no Promised Land

[Chorus]
We are what they aren’t
We do what they don’t
We love how we live
We live how they won’t
We say what we say
And we don’t give a damn
We ain’t living no Promised Land
Until the day that we die they drink from our cup
Sell us a lie, and we buy it up
I’m just a fool who understands
We ain’t living in no Promised Land
We ain’t living in no Promised Land
We ain’t living in no Promised Land

[Chorus]
We are what they aren’t
We do what they don’t
We love how we live
We live how they won’t
We say what we say
And we don’t give a damn
We ain’t living no Promised Land
Until the day that we die they drink from our cup
Sell us a lie, and we buy it up
I’m just a fool who understands
We ain’t living in no Promised Land
We ain’t living in no Promised Land
We ain’t living in no Promised Land
