You are the epitome of gold
Refusing to seem old in this world so cold
It's solely you who keeps the power in your role
You roll thru the tolls and pay the whole price
You create your own luck as you roll the dice
Took hits not twice, but too many times
You're the reason for my rhythm as I write these rhymes
I think about the power of our bulletproof rage
The awareness we bring proves the world is our stage
Tried to keep us in a cage, now mentally too
Used and left us on the shelves to make us waste ourselves too
Made us feel we have no wealth, in life’s value we do
Y'all can keep trying, you know who I'm talking to
Thru anything we STILL take you to a higher level
In everything we do, we put the pedal to medal
Level headed not always, cause some days are rough
We coulda changed our ways if y'all didn't make it too tough
Enough is enough we've said for too long
& Y'all still don't see what the hell you do wrong?
We don't have much when we compare shit to you
And you still take from us, what the hell did we do?
The one thing you can't take, is the fact that we build
And we'll keep building up, no matter how many you kill
