M.i.a. Ctrl
M.i.a. Ctrl

Though there was once a time when her music was nearly ubiquitous — who doesn’t remember “Paper Planes” appearing in pop culture at every turn — M.I.A’s career has since been fraught with turmoil. Blackballed by the industry (in her own words) and rendered an outcast of sorts, the eclectic musician never let the many obstacles begin to throw her off the trail. In fact, M.I.A. has all but doubled down, and while her mainstream popularity has plummetted her creativity and artistic individuality have remained distinctly unique. Even the release of her new single “CTRL” feels like part of a wider vision.

Lyrics

[Hook]
Hands up, hands down
Wake up, snap out
We gon’ stand up
When they try to
Control, control
Control, control
Control, control
Control

[Verse 1]
Freedom of speech
What do schools teach?
M.I.A. be preaching now
World town reach
Dark skin on beach
I don’t use no bleach
Drivin’ in the seat
And my BM goes screech
Rendez-vouz in Greece
They wanna get a piece
Modern Day Tolstoy
I give them War & Peace
Une, deux, trois
Quatre, cinq, six
Why you got to fuck with me
Just to be a bitch?
Yeah first female singer on the black list
If you want the truth I wonder why the point’s missed
World town intelligence
I’m here for justice
If you’re trying to break me
You better practise
Sheila and Bahgwan
50/50 mix
Mystic, gangsta
I don’t take the licks
Gucci gang, gucci gang, gucci gang
Roti gang, Puri gang, Curry gang
Gucci galangalang – make it bang!

[Hook]
Hands up, hands down
Wake up, snap out
We gon’ stand up
When they try to
Control, control
Control, control
Control, control
Control
Hands up, hands down
Wake up, snap out
We gon’ stand up
When they try to
Control, control
Control, control
Control, control
Control

[Verse 2]
Face mask
Ski mask
Now you think you’re hard
One woman bandit
Moon shaped scar
Personality wide
I gave it three names
No it’s not split
I CTRL my own brain
You use 8% and you split it 2 ways
I use more than that and make em open up a case
“Can we dumb her down? She’s so complicay, problematic, traumatised, how the fuck is she ok?”
Standing in the way of the trolls
Everything they say about me is false
They be typing, tapping, typing the most
Hiding in the net like a ghost

[Hook]
Hands up, hands down
Wake up, snap out
We gon’ stand up
When they try to
Control, control
Control, control
Control, control
Control, control
Hands up, hands down
Wake up, snap out
We gon’ stand up
When they try to
Control, control
Control, control
Control, control
Control

[Outro]
Hands up, hands down
Wake up, snap out
We gon’ stand up
When they try to
Control, control
Control, control
Control, control
Control
