These Shoes - Lyrics

I grew up in a place where it's cash before the people
Where the value of your clothing will determine how we see you
Words find you in a better state than which we leave you
Where we have to subtract you to remind you we're not equal
My neighbor asked me where I got these sneakers on my feet
He knows it from the adverts and he knows that they're not cheap
I said "My boy got them from Cape Town for my birthday last week"
Knowing very well I went and bought them in Small Street
So I've always understood that it's more than just a shoe
It's a reflection of your household and what y'all be parents do
It shows how much respect they're obliged to give you
If it's a thousand or two then you're worthy in their view
Maybe a Gucci pair comes with love in the box
And Louis Vuitton sneaks make them listen when I talk
It comes when I change my step
But my father's salary can only give
me shoes from Pep, if I'm lucky maybe Jet

And you know what's the worst thing?
I only go to SportScene to greet my friend that works there
And Ricky shamed the boy for wearing fake Balenciaga's
We're closer to wearing nada than we are to wearing Prada
So the heels are getting tired and the sole is very weak
I need to heal, I'm getting tired and my soul is very weak
And because they were cheap, I'm astounding a lot of girls
But with these very same shoes I intend to run the world
My name is Touchline one time, thank you so much
