N.E.R.D – Kites (feat. Kendrick Lamar & M.I.A.)

Illuminate the corner, celebrate humanity scream and back at me in the morning
On my young niggas, on my done nigga
Sittin’ waiting patient for a universal pain
Carriers the cross, they curious

Ain’t no summers for our sons, ain’t no dealings for our daughters

[Refrain: M.I.A.]
I’m paying all these with periods

I’m letting off kites over barriers
We drink out our plastic tumblers
We unite through the chaos (only for the purist)
Bring the fucking crayon
[Outro: Chad Hugo]
Everybody need space, okay
Waking up the spirit it’s on every human being
Woo!

Ay, elevate your life

[Chorus: M.I.A.]
When we do the [?] we make 60 til’ it’s done
I’m serious, I hope you are feeling us
If you with us, then you scream, so one day you can shine way up!
Ay, we with ceiling lights
Way, way, way up
Every field in Mississippi, every street in California
Truck into a stream, disconnected to a dream
All my sisters and my bros
They give us so many more
Tell them to obey ours
If you want to bring the day up
Head bussin’, hittin’ nothing, even if I gotta bleed
While you see us on Tumblrs
With mobiles are running delirious
Kites on my radar, life in my palms
Me, I am way up
What you tryna’ to close it for?
Wake up in the morning, don’t know if you’re coming back
One time!
I’m letting off kites over barriers
Ay, location device
Tryna set us off for combat, no way
[Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar & Pharrell]
I’m letting off kites over barriers
[Intro]
This revolution ain’t televised with prayer, jumping over borders
Way, way, way up!
Ay, sipping from the kite
Regardless which way it blows
[Bridge: Pharrell & M.I.A.]
Against the wind, they gon’ shoot us

Know the devil is a liar, it’s the time to be anointed
Nigga hold a door
If you want to shine way up!
Say "hey, you", you won’t admire us
There’s room for some many more
In the moon like we’re Venus
Ay, oh-ay, ay-ay-ah
[Verse 2: Pharrell]
I’m letting off kites over barriers
Politicking with the nation, this is big as you and me huh?

Yeah
Every prosecution hung, save the verdict for the lawyers
On my young one, on my done one

[Verse 4: M.I.A.]
If you got the light inside then you know you need to blah!
Radio never play ours
If you want to shine way up!
I let you find my contacts, okay

Hey, hey
My cerebellum threw a rebellion from AR’s (room for the boom stick)
The day I have a J.R., I tell him the worth of God only, and quit his day job (motherfuck the bullshit)
Yeah

They don’t wanna get down with foreigners
Hey, hey
Hey!
We wanna get jobs as a baroness
The girls in here are the humblest
Nigga hold a door
I wanna get high cause I’m curious
Thought they had to add the clothes
Yeah
It’s our dream, out of this radius
[Verse 1: Pharrell]

Tonight we unify society
I’m letting off kites over barriers
Ay, oh-ay, ay-ay-ah
We in love at the rally
Woo!
Ay, oh-ay, ay-ay-ah
Ain’t no ruler for restrictions, ain’t no police to deport us
Kites like UFOs
Ay, oh-ay, ay-ay-ah
