Skyline Lyrics – Cadence Weapon

Skyline Lyrics – Cadence Weapon

 

Happening again, eh?
Woke up to a bad dream
Waved goodbye to our spaces
Every one of our favourites

Cityscape looking faceless
Made the streets look stainless
The surgery wasn’t painless [no
No past, just traces [noo

Nowhere to play, just playlists
Walked through town, it was looking strange
All I saw was weed places [huh
They wanna keep us sedated

They don’t want civic engagement [damn
LRT stations in Little Jamaica
Lead to mass displacement
Condo ads with white faces

Who’s gonna gain from the changes?
I don’t recognize the skyline
And I can’t see the sunshine
Saw a hole in the skyline

Read about it in a headline
I don’t recognize the skyline
No, I can’t see the sunshine
No, I can’t see the sunshine

No, I can’t see the sunshine
The powers that be, they trick us [they do
Loopholes to evict us
Slumlords in effect

Raising the rent then they blame the victims
The city tears down encampments
My neighbours bought a place in Hamilton
Tents right next to the mansions

They acting like it isn’t happenin’
City planners never plan for us
Mayor Tory doesn’t ride the bus [no
Or ride a bike or ride for us [no

So how can he understand what we want?
Ford Nation’s for the corporations
But he don’t care about the public [he don’t
Whenever we ask for what we need

They say there’s no room in the budget
I don’t recognize the skyline
And I can’t see the sunshine
Saw a hole in the skyline

Read about it in a headline
I don’t recognize the skyline
No, I can’t see the sunshine
No, I can’t see the sunshine

No, I can’t see the sunshine
