lyrics

Seize the day, Seize the day
Cause this one moment now,
may up and fly away.
got one life to live,
Tell me, what ya gonna say
Ain’t no better time like today.


I rather own myself,
than to be owned by somebody else
the new Malcolm-Martin, starting a revolution
far from televised,
keep my eyes on how I’ll make improvement*
doing what I’m meant to do, and stay fluent
that made you look like ‘they shooting’ and raise deuces
I came silent without a team, and made a choice
Breaking barriers, using sound, and making noises**
Could either work for someone else’s dreams
Or take lead, to make cream by my own means
What I’m fighting for, is bigger than a widescreen
Hard to be humble,
when you’re vying just to get seen.***
I’m from a land where some kill, and some take it
When 99 percent want it, but we’ll never make it.
Easier said than done, instead I prefer to rep’ for myself
And on my word, this is all I heard….

From the bottom, used to settle on the hand me downs
Took what I could, and I never would stand my ground
Feelin dissatisfied over jobs, and rarely sober
Livin check to check,
with no thanks, and even lower/* than before
a long time coming
slower/ than the rest of the pack
but fast, taking over.
So when it’s time to march, boots already laced
One step away, meeting my fate anyday.**
You can either relate, or choose to act hesitant
Be aware, Or scared and not participate
Outside looking in, Or owner of the property
Being controlled, Or controlling what you gotta be.***
Just wanna be alive,
Long enough to see my child/ know that I did it without a compromise.
I could’ve backed down
But instead I’m coming back
And hitting harder
for my next plan of attack.
