Dax – “Gotham” Lyrics – ‘Prove nothing to Gotham they done nothing for me’

(The AEGIS Alliance) – I think that we’re headed down the wrong road.
Fake’s real and they say real’s fake woke.
False prophets on these screens everywhere we go.
But what did you expect when dumb people got smartphones.
More memes cool make it all a big joke.
Crown your fake kings and let them sit up on your fake thrones.
You’re young now but just wait until you grow old.
When life gets real you’ll remember all these words I wrote.
I went roaming walked multiple ways.
For 40 nights 40 sleeps, deaths, multiple days.
In the desert no food water searching for the answers but you listen to these people who got nothing to say.

You wouldn’t know real if it slapped you right in the face.
Ain’t for the culture I can tell by the sh*t you embrace.
I’m in Gotham but my minds in a different place.
So F*ck your co-signs, money, and your radio play.
I be shaking when I write my music.
I’ve been anti-violent but don’t push me cause I just might do it.
They won’t give you no credit cause they know you’ll use it.
And that’s what happens when the master starts fearing the student.
In this city you’re a number they don’t see you as human.
Just a puppet they replace for their games and amusement.
In a city full of angels with the biggest influence I see demons with a platform who just fucking abuse it.

In Gotham…

Everybody knows everybody.
if you ain’t got a blue check you Ain’t anybody.
Redo, repeat, sleep, double-tap, see copy.
Lost souls unaware they’re turning into dead zombies.
Everywhere you look is plastic all fabricated.
Everything you’ve seen on tv was exaggerated.
Don’t nobody see you till you get a million.
followers and when you do they treat you like you’re someone and you’re validated.

What do you do?
How much money you make?
Who do you know?
What do you drive?
Where do you stay?
And while you’re answering those questions.
They’ll be calculating how much of it they can see themselves trying to come in and take.
If you’re fragile don’t you even try to come to this place.
They gon’ build you just to break you then rebuild you to break.
Let you reach your own limit then heroically save and that’s exactly how Gotham turns you into a slave.

In Gotham…

Everyone goes and they lose their souls cause they can’t control in Gotham.
Everyone lies.
it’s an eye for an eye.
you will lose your mind in Gotham.
Everyone goes and they lose their souls cause they can’t control in Gotham.
Living in Gotham.
Living in Gotham.
Living in Gotham.
Living in Gotham.

Nobody’s from here.
But everybody comes here.
Wanting to be famous till they realize the price of fame brings close everything that they once feared.
Consumed by the algorithm it becomes clear life’s a simulation all controlled by a puppeteer.
blind people leading blind people driving cars to a destination that is unclear while they can’t steer.

1 year 2 years 3 years 4.
Drugs alcohol addiction morgue.
Fake friends women gold-digging as a sport.
who convince you, you should live a whole life you can’t afford.
Nobody sees you, you’re continuously ignored.
Everybody wants fame they don’t care what it’s for.
They don’t wanna build theirs.
They’re just tryna take yours.
This is dog eat dog in this messed up world.

You think you need this place but you don’t.
Happiness is not a physical place you call home.
Did you ever wonder why you feel like you feel when you take that time away from your phone?
Fake shit goes viral we know this won’t.
They’ll say they care but will never show.
Gotham isn’t just a place it’s a mind state.
Watered by the thoughts that manifest what you grow.

In Gotham.
Everyone goes And they lose their souls cause they can’t control in Gotham.
Everyone lies.
it’s an eye for an eye.
you will lose your mind in Gotham.
Everyone goes and they lose their souls cause they can’t control in Gotham.
Living in Gotham.
Living in Gotham.
Living in Gotham.
Living in Gotham.

Don’t Tell them how you feel cause I promise they won’t call back.
Everybody’s in it for money so it’s all back.
Killing off my demons I’m rapping this in all black.
I ain’t gotta.
I ain’t gotta.
I ain’t gotta.
I ain’t gotta.
Prove nothing to Gotham they done nothing for me… for me.
