In The Fire Lyrics – Dave

I know I got religion
I belong to the noisy crew ‘Heh, heh’
You see, we shout when we get happy
That’s the way we Christian do
Oh

‘Have you been tried’
Have you been tried in that fire? ’In the fire?’
I heard bullets sing higher than Mariah in choir ’Yes’
Spent a lot of time trappin’, now I’m tryna retire
But the shit runs in my blood and I’m the guy they require

‘Have you been tried’
Yeah, these guns don’t bring nothin’ but prison and death, still ‘In the fire?’
All my niggas just admire the firе ‘Yes’
Bro squeeze and he miss, but wе admire a trier
Finesse kid, you can never lie to a liar
But Fred got the fire, I fire for days ’Have you been tried in the fire?’
I gotta write them in my notes, they’ll be ignitin’ the page ’Oh, yes’
Grindin’ on cold nights, puttin’ light to the flame

Now there’s no flame that can melt the ice in my chain, yeah ‘Tell me’
I really put the ice in rice for the ‘caine ’Did you come through?’
Me and Santan, you won’t see nothin’ like this again ‘Did you come through? Did you come-’
That’s my young boys again, on the glide with the flame
I just really hope your block came with fire escapes ‘Have you been tried’

Before my entrance, I took the fire exit ‘In the fire?’
Tried and tested, about twenty times arrested ’Yes’
Two times guilty, no comment, I guess they guessed it
Couple times bail, no forensics ‘Have you been tried’
This a Deezy pendant, I don’t need a necklace
We stay protected and connected ’In the fire?’
It’s the energies I’m blessed with ’Yes’
And now they watchin’ like Netflix, had me doin’ next shit
Tryna get rich, but what’s rich?
Took more losses than Boris ’Have you been tried’
I sold more boxes than the post-office ‘In the fire? Oh’
Twenty-one in jail, it turned me so solid
Why you think my vision sick, I changed the game in my brain ‘Yes’
And sold robotics ‘Tell me’

If you fell in my fire, you probably roast on it ’Did you come through?’
Heat up the stove and put hope on it ‘Did you come through?’
Cah they don’t care ’bout our lives, I put my soul on it ‘Did you come-’
I’m done tryna be somebody to some nobodies ‘Listen’
I’m bein’ so honest, and they don’t know porridge

Fire burnin’ while I’m watchin’, higher learnin’
Guns bustin’, tyres turnin’, that’s a Russian and a German ‘Yes’
That’s your phone ringin’, you can hear the beep
You won’t be saved by the bell when you hear the screech
And it’s so deep, open, ocean
There’s man escapin’ some shells they can barely see

Me and bro raisin’ hell, we gon’ share the heat ‘Yes’
Then put us in the same cell, we gon’ share the sleep ‘There’s a fire’
Am I my brother’s keeper? ’It’s deeper’
I’m my brother’s leader ‘Speaker’
I’m the eldest, the one who had to make a name so the bells ring
So nobody would trouble my siblings in this whirlwind ‘And’
My older cousin wasn’t known for nothin’ ‘And’

Never had no one I could call, but I was holdin’ somethin’ ‘And’
I’m diggin’ deep with this tool like I’m known for plumbin’ ‘Yes, h–’
Somethin’ in your chest like it’s Robitussin
Word to arsonist, I burn all this ‘In the fire’
I stood in front of all three dragons and heard “Dracarys”
And now we’re jumpin’ out G-Wagons and murkin’ parties
Man are comin’ out with these bangers and dirty dancin’
‘Have you been tried?’
Nobody puts baby in a corner
I uplift my girl, like I’m Swayze in the water
And if it’s already written, maybe I’m the author
So accustomed to the fire, I get shivers when I’m naked in the sauna
How, many times have they mistaken me for Scorcher? ’In the fire’
I’m lookin’ in the mirror, sayin’ “Justin, just cool, nuh”

Send Ghetto downstairs and tell them “Just bring me water”
And tell Ghetts I put somethin’ in the formula
I’m focused, I don’t need to burn the kush
This is Moses speakin’ to the burnin’ bush ‘huh’
I stood in front of the fire and learned to cook
Finished my verse and never heard a hook

‘Have you been tried’
Riskiest numbers ‘In the fire?’
This jungle stick through your youngers ‘Ha’
He’s hungry, picked off the fungus
Kept humble, slipped him a hundred ‘Have you been tried’
Yeah, lived in a dungeon ‘In the fire?’
Those AirMax, which nigga stung them? ‘Which?’ ‘Yes’

Can’t walk in my shoes ‘Yeah’
You could be riskin’ a bunion ’Have you been tried’ ‘Hahaha’
The government’s twisted ‘In the fire?’
I cover this shift to cover this Christmas ‘Oh, yes’
Forget them old friends, I’m done with those bitches
They colour-coded my brothers and sisters ‘Tell me’
Run the rhythm ‘Did you come through?’

You’re a brother but you’re running with them ‘Did you come through?’
Try accusin’ me of colourism ‘Did you come-’
Blinded ’cause you look at me with tunnel vision
I was fallin’, but I’ve gone and risen ‘Have you been tried’
Is this nigga trusty ’In the fire?’

Or Sideshow Bob when he’s creepin’ on Krusty? ’Yes’
Streets keep me tusslin’, people disgust me
Racist disease, that shit that disgust me ‘Disgust me’ ‘Have you been tried’
Don’t touch me, on the streets with the sweeper ’In the fire?’
‘Cause the streets pretty dusty ‘Dusty’ ’Yes’
And I’ve always got love for

Genuine, people that buss me ‘Haha’
Santan, and the gang advisor ‘Have you been tried in the fire?’
I’ma check him out, I’m a analyser ‘Oh, yes’
She was callin’ me an antagoniser ‘Tell me’
Let me sanitise, where’s the sanitiser? ’Jheeze’ ‘Did you come through?’
Just flutter by, he said “Giggs can you handle this?” ’Did you come through?’
He said “Float like a butterfly”
I bring truth but they love a lie
Plans, I’m the man you should run ’em by ‘Have you been’

‘Tried in the fire?’
Yeah, in the fire, been tried
Affected the way I been wired inside
You can hide or glide ’Yes’
I could’ve been deported
That’s the definition of a “Fight-or-flight” ’Have you been tried’

You can type all you like, I know about homeless ‘In the fire?’
Immigration, they took me from my mum’s arms ‘Yes’
Fuck a gun charge, two swords, I’m a Ronin
Błaszczykowski, I’m tryna score with the Polish ’Have you been tried’
Pain in my eyes, plans of me stayin’ in the guide ‘In the fire?’
With a vision of this changin’ my life ‘Oh, yes’

Crime’s on the rise, hate’s on the rise
Feel like everythin’ but my mum’s pay’s on the rise
‘Tell me, did you come through?’
“Did you come through?” That’s the question ‘Did you come through?’
Affording a burner was never man’s problem ’Did you come-’
Adoption, we couldn’t find homes for the weapons

By the station, we got poles, no election ’Have you been tried’
In the fire, been tested
Before I had money, it was time I invested ‘In the fire?’
Nothin’ changed, still time I invest in ’Yes’
Watch-game delicate
Tutankhamun, there’s money in skeletons ’Have you been-’
All I gotta do is point, they’re gonna sever his head ‘In the fire?’
And tell * that we’re better as friends ‘Yes’

Nights that I can’t remember with some people I could never forget
Casa Cruz, you could bet a Nusr-et
Don’t make me call a young gunner on the back of a ‘ped ‘Have you been tried in the fire’
Slappin’ a lead, civilians grabbin’ your friends ‘Oh, yes’
There’s chaos on the main road, they called choppers and PEDs
All because of some shit that you said, I got killers with me ‘Killers with me’
‘Tell me’
And they love me ‘Did you come through?’
They make a man’s heart stop ‘Did you come through?’
The shit you find horrifyin’ gets laughed off ‘Did you come-’
I’m like Meekz, bro, I won’t stop, can’t stop
Yeah, it’s kinda different when the fire’s what you start from ‘Have you been’

Tried in the fire? ‘Rolling, and- Cut!’
Have you been tried in the fire? ‘Yes!’
Have you been tried in the fire? Oh ‘Yes!’
Tell me ‘Did you come through?’
Did you come through? ‘Did you come-’
Have you been in

Do your research, to travel
Go and see, go and really see the corners of the world that, that are alien to you, really do interest you
And you know, ’cause in due process, then you’ll meet new people
And then those people will tell you new stories
Then you become a voice for the voiceless
I mean, you should ask Daniel, really and truly, where he goes to find himself
‘Cause I don’t know anything, I’m just speculatin’, umm
More importantly for you and your family
You then get to ask the questions and answer the questions
About where you were made
Like “Where you come from, where you’re goin, London, Lagos, LA”
The journey is the film
