    Joey Badass - Hardknock (Verse 3).
    [Verse 3: Joey BadA$$]
    ****** wanna know what I’m about, I’m bout blowing loud
    On the block sporty, Glock 40 in a politician mouth
    I take the competition out commission with my composition
    Who the kid spitting behind the bars like a con position
    Gotta give ‘em time to listen, they’ll soon bump to it
    They’ll like me, I kick it like Nike they’ll soon adjust to it
    But if you hate I know you must do it
    I ain’t mad at you I keep my attitude on "screw it a million bucks should do it"
    I’m out for presidents to represent me
    Yo chick keep messaging me, who the bestest MC? They be mentioning me
    Too hot, I be molesting the beat, **** math
    Teachers should teach us to get Smith & Wesson’s off of the street
    So first class be a lesson for me
    **** what you teaching for some regents, I'm flying over regions
    Reaching, all time highs where Jesus can’t reach us
    Step to me and get the recipe to make you rest in peace
    This is for my ******, killers, hundred dollar billers
    On the block in the rock spot, Glock cocked watching out for cops
    All about their cheddar, young guns know nothing that’s better
    Like **** a prison letter, those Beretta’s led us to the lettuce
    Relish fetishes, menaces want the senator’s percentages
    If you ain't prejudice you still a nemesis
    Smoking on the Clematis, get open like a present is
    Now your presence is on the premises for them presidents
    My city be the genesis for where they think the terror is
    They linking terrorists from the Stuy to Lincoln Terraces
    Stay on that reckless ****, they leave you left for the dead
    Kids don’t play they’ll erase your head in a race for the bread
    Children on the corners slinging some regs, popping some meds
    Jakes be so deep in cover they be chasing the feds
    I be back stage gripping haze breaking my leg
    My folks was making the best when they was naked in bed, mutha****a

    Here I am a rabbit hearted girl
    Frozen in the headlights
    It seems I've made the final sacrifice
    We raise it up, this offering
    We raise it up

    This is a gift it comes with a price
    Who is the lamb and who is the knife
    Midas is king and he holds me so tight
    And turns me to gold in the sunlight

    Florence + the machine- Rabbit heart (raise it up)Basically, anything by Florence.

    Also, London Grammar- Metal and Dust

    And so, you built a life on trust
    Though it starts, with love and lust
    And when your house, begins to rust
    Oh, it's just, metal and dust

    We argue, we don't fight
    We argue, we don't fight

    And all foundation that we made
    Built to last, they disintegrate
    And when your house begins to rust
    Oh, it's just, metal and dust

    Also, anything by bombay bicycle club too. They write simple,but effective lyrics.
