Ball and Chain Lyrics

"This is a journey into sound"

Phonte - Ball And Chain

She holds me down

She holds me up

She licks my wounds

Then cuts me deep

She tells me stay

Then plans to leave

She is my cure

And my disease

And it's all complicated

'Cause I hate myself for feeling this way

These walls is to protect me now they're closing in yeah

She keeps me so secure

Until I can't escape

So unpredictable

But it's all the same

So many nights I wish

I knew the moment when

Your anchor turned into a ball and chain baby

Brings me to tears

Then wipes me dry

Ask me for truth

Then tell me lies

And it's oh so plain (oh so plain)

As clear as eyes can see (eyes can see)

The brokest happiness this side of miseryyyyyy

And it's all complicated

'Cause I hate myself for feeling this way

These walls used to protect me now they're closing innnn ohhhh

She keeps me so secure

Until I can't escape

So unpredictable

But it's all the same

So many nights I wish

I knew the moment when

Your anchor turned into a ball and chain baby

Aiyyo ain't nothin wrong with havin both feet on the ground

Until you look artound and realize that you are bound

Realize that you have drowned in the sea of security

That leads to complacency now tell me how that sound

You tell me how you found your way back to the turnout

When the love flame's burn out now your house lookin +Smokey+

Like "The Teardrops of a Clown " just wanna live in peace

But can't show too many teeth 'cause she'll take shots at your crown

Pow Another shot another man down

So I'm back on my Moe Dee sh*t +How Ya Like Me Now +

Back on my public speech sh*t talkin to the crowd

Standin tall front and center

When I'm finished take a bow holla

(And it's all complicated

 

'Cause I hate myself for feeling this way)

Uh it's cool to be grounded youknahmsayin

 

Just don't get used to bein on the ground

Let's go

She keeps me so secure

Until I can't escape

So unpredictable

But it's all the same

So many nights I wish

I knew the moment when

Your anchor turned into a ball and chain baby

Yeah uh yeah uh

It' Phontigaa uh

And my man Swiff Diesel

Yes Let it bump

Let it bump

 

Let it bump
