Lyrics

(Verse 1)

Shot down every time I try to speak,

​I ain't taking shit anymore,

​long time coming but I'm breaking free,

watch me now kicking down doors. ​

​Hey! Suffocating hands all over me, ​

Hey! I can feel you slowly choking me,

tired of all your insecurities,

​I don't give a damn anymore.


(Hook)

​I could see it in your eyes, won't stop 'till you get your prize,

you love the goods you're after gold, you want it all.


(Chorus)

Damn! Somebody better call the police,

​Hey! Got me begging for an early release,

​oh ooh, you had me on Lock Down,

​oh ooh, you had us all locked down. ​ ​

Damn! Got me tied up on a leash,

​Hey! Make sure that I would never leave, ​

oh ooh, you had me on Lock Down,

​oh ooh, you had us all locked down.


(Verse 2)

Back down bitch you're 'bout to cross the line,

I'm the only girl they'll be calling, ​

trusting you I must've lost my mind, ​

and I'll forget your name by the morning. ​ ​

Hey! Stop smothering your lies all over me, ​

Hey! Crazy eyes are slowly burning me,

​feels so good I got you out my life,

​now watch me climb higher as you're falling.


(Hook)

​I could see it in your eyes, won't stop 'till you get your prize,

you love the goods you're after gold, you want it all.


(Chorus)

Damn! Somebody better call the police,

​Hey! Got me begging for an early release,

​oh ooh, you had me on Lock Down,

​oh ooh, you had us all locked down. ​ ​

Damn! Got me tied up on a leash (got me tied up),

​Hey! Make sure that I would never leave, ​

oh ooh, you had me on Lock Down,

​oh ooh, you had us all locked down.


(Breakdown)

You got me begging for a, ​

you got me begging release, ​

I know what's better for me. Hey!​


(Chorus)

​Damn! Somebody better call the police, (call the police!),

Hey! Got me begging for an early release,

oh ooh, you had me on Lock Down, (oooh on Lock Down),

oh ooh, you had us all locked down, (yeeaah).

Damn! (woo) Got me tied up on a leash,

Hey! Make sure that I would never leave, (make sure that I would never leave),

oh ooh, you had me on Lock Down,

oh ooh (you had us all locked down)

​oh ooh oh ooh oh ohh damn!
