F430 (Jet & Sensei) – Battosai (English lyrics)

1st verse (Sensei) :
I drag around my pain, kind of like the Battosai
And I let you think that I haven’t detected your hypocrisy
It’s dark in the building, my uncle, nothing but brave guys in the squad
We pulled out our katanas when we understood that peace wasn’t profitable
And if we switched shoes, would you have done the things that were imposed on you ? (Tell me)
For your loved ones, would you be ready to risk your life, or would you do like the others ? (Or would you do like the others ?)
There’s nothing but tension at home, when it’s the weed that pays the rent
We did it because we had to, by any means we had to make money
What would you have done ? (hey)
I’m not sure that you would be up to the task (hey)
We had to do it boy, oh yeah we had to do it boy, even if we lost ourselves boy

Chorus (Jet) (x2) :
I’ve known nightmarish stories, the types that make you lose weight
Like the cops breaking into your home, taking away your mother
You turn pale all of a sudden
Understand that today, I don’t have anymore soul, rotten is mankind
Everyday that I live, I ask for forgiveness, this life isn’t normal

2nd verse (Jet) :
At my place, what would you have done ? I took things upon me and I’ve been patient
I had to go back to work, break my back in order to pay back my debts
You know, the streets are dangerous, despite that, I never changed, never changed
A Tanger mentality, I fell, I got back up
I learned (I learned), wesh uncle, tell them, who’s doing a show at Bercy ?
Who’s the one that the cops are always arresting, because in our video clips they see us
Advancing, little by little, Guapo will catch up to the wasted time
Guapo will take back what’s his
Little by little, I’m doing my thing, little by little
I’ll do whatever it takes to get away from here, to Rotterdam or California

Chorus (Jet) (x2) :
I’ve known nightmarish stories, the types that make you lose weight
Like the cops breaking into your home, taking away your mother
You turn pale all of a sudden
Understand that today, I don’t have anymore soul, rotten is mankind
Everyday that I live, I ask for forgiveness, this life isn’t normal
