Atmosphere - Shhh Lyrics

Such a pleasure to come home

Cuz I...I have a very special love for this city

Well all right, well okay [x3]

Well all right [x3]

I wanted to make a song about where I'm from

You know? Big up my home town, my territory, my state

But, I couldn't figure out much to brag about

Prince lives here, we got 10,000 lakes

But wait, the women are beautiful, to me they are

And we're not infested with pretentious movie stars

And it hit me, Minnesota is dope

If only simply for not what we have but what we don't

It's all fair, it ain't out there, it's in there

It's in the mirror, behind the breast under the hair

Follow the dream doesn't mean leave the love

Roam if you must, but come home when you've seen enough

I love New York and Cali, but I ain't movin'

Too overpopulated saturated with humans

And I'm not big on rappers, actors, or models

If I had to dip, I'd probably skip to Chicago

None of this is to diss no one, nowhere

Like damn, I'm from Minnesota, land of the cold air

Too many mosquitoes and our fair share of egos

But like my man Sabe says, that's where my mommy stays

[Chorus:]

So if the people laugh and giggle when you tell em where you

live

Say shhh, say shhh

And if you know this is where you wanna raise your kids

Say shhh, say shhh

If you're from the Midwest and it doesn't matter where

Say shhh, say shhh

If you can drink tap water and breathe the air

Say shhh, say shhh

Got trees and vegetation in the city I stay

The rent's in the mail and I can always find a parking space

The women outnumber the men two to one

Got parks and zoos and things to do with my son

The nightlife ain't all that, but that's okay

I don't need to be distracted by the devil every day

And the jobs ain't really too hard to find

In fact, you could have mine if you knew how to rhyme

This is for everyone around the planet

That wishes they were from somewhere other than where they

standin'

Don't take it for granted, instead take a look around

Quit complaining and build something on that ground

Plant something on that ground, dance and sleep on that ground

Get on your hands and knees and watch the ants walk around

That ground Make a family, make magic, make a mess

Take the stress, feel your motivation and build your nest

It sucks that you think where I'm from is wack

But as long as that's enough to keep your ass from coming back

And with a smile and a hint of sarcasm, he said

"I beg your pardon but this is my secret garden"

All right

(In the land of ice and snow)

Well okay

(In the land of ice and snow)

Well all right

(In the land of ice and snow)

Well okay

(Minneapolis, Minneapolis, Minneapolis, Minneapolis)

[Repeat Chorus]

If the playground is clear of stems and syringes

Say shhh, say shhh

If there's only one store in your town that sells 12-inches

Say shhh, say shhh

If no one in your crew walks around with a gun

Say shhh, say shhh

And if you ain't gonna leave cause this is where you're from

Say shhh, say shhh

Well alright, well okay [repeated in background]
