Anakin

Hey, you talk too much, yes, hey, like the guys from the water pipe,
hey
I'm going to make you win time, hey, I live in the centre of Paris, hey
They look at my left hand, the price of a Haussmann building (1), okay
Féfé (2), Lamborghini, hey, money creates gamblers (3), hey
I know my enemy well, hey, he has already slept at my place, hey
Knows the kids well, hey and the dishes of the Misses, okay
 
Okay (okay), okay (okay), okay (okay)
Okay (okay), okay (okay), okay (okay), okay
 
Hard drugs in the kitchen, obscure Anakin (4)
Planet Earth is getting out of hand, I understand harakiri (5)
I spin, I spin like a vinyl, I spin, I spin like a guard
Mother, handcuffed, I've seen the policeman who beat her
Transaction, calm, how can you drink so many litres of wine
while being drunk, doing a wheelie with your bike?
I'm redecorating, Valérie Damidot (6)
The little ones on the side, hands in the (car) bonnet, the police
Franprix (7), kalachnikov, gun, consulting room: no visits
Go Fast, more fuel, this bit doesn't make sense
A thoroughbred in the stable: Bugs, Vesti, Warner Fury (8)
Blue-Eyes White Dragon (9): follows me because he can
I began in the street, I had nothing, nothing, nothing
I don't recognise myself anymore, I don't even look at the prices anymore, the prices, prices, prices
They all want to be part of the fire team (10), team, team
It won't stop, like Israel-Palestine-tine-tine (11)
 
Okay (okay), okay (okay), okay (okay)
Okay (okay), okay (okay), okay (okay), okay
 
Hey, you talk too much, yes, hey, like the guys from the water pipe,
hey
I'm going to make you win time, hey, I live in the centre of Paris, hey
They look at my left hand, the price of a Haussmann building (1), okay
Féfé, Lamborghini, hey, money creates gamblers, hey
I know my enemy well, hey, he has already slept at my place, hey
Knows the kids well, hey and the dishes of the Misses, okay
 
Okay, okay
O-okay, oh-oh
 
A taser in the pool, Who am I? Ask Siri
Don't look at what I do, Listen to what I say
A memorable career, a favourable destiny
Zero for writing, nineteen for speaking
A young black man in the streets using nothing but deception
Do you think I'm enjoying myself? Wolfgang Amadeus
Rislavi, Hanounava, Flava Navi Flama Navon
Call me, I have plans, I lunch with Pelisson (12)
I've come from far, small brat; doesn't earn what he wants
King Night, wall of ice, dead dragon, blue flame (13)
alcoholised drink, kiss on the cheek, money, tax administration, I know what they're saying
Disciples, hit, pact, saying: six-six-six
You call me, I don't pick up if it's under six numbers
There's WaraOui leaving from the toilets, there's gold quick, quick
You're bad, I can feel it, physical energy
I already know what I'm going to do to you, I act as if I'm thinking
 
Okay, okay, okay
O-okay, oh-oh
 
Boum, brrrrr, pah...
