lyrics

(chorus)
We rise, we fall /
we cry, of course /
We love, we die /
Survive, evolve /

(1)
I'll never turn on my own, s'why I'm not at the top /
I do what I do; but what I do isn't what /
You probably chose to include in the tunes that you drop /
And it's true that I'm not tryna prove that I'm hot / watch /

I been doin' it for me since day /
And I've wrote a few tracks just to keep me sane /
And I'm short a few stacks but at least we've saved /
And that's all I do, rap, make beats, sleep, pray /

That I'm walking the right path, I'll know eventually /
... I hope so, and play the part that was sent to me /
I guess it's destiny /
Coz there's no other way I'd have met these people, yes it's meant to be /

And should the day come when my times up /
It'll be too soon, where's the sky plus, hit rewind once /
Maybe change you're mind but, I doubt it /
I'll keep pushing till I reach the top of this mountain /

And sometimes happiness isn't found in /
The obvious places, surroundings /
See this box, I'm trying hard to think outside of it /
And all the while I'm confined to it /

(chorus)
We rise, we fall /
we cry, of course /
We love, we die /
Survive, evolve /

(2)
Sometimes it seems all in vain /
And everybody hits a rocky patch, more of the same /
Things got me feeling futile, I'd like to place an order of faith /
But it's hard coz there's a shortage today /

And one man isn't causing a change /
Certain stuff I can fix, but those I can't alter my brain /
And to say I'm feeling useless, well that's an understatement /
I'm at the point where I seem nigh on close to breaking /

Align my hopes to shake it, try to talk to friends /
Some'll listen wishing all the best /
Others under stress have more problems than I could hope to mend /
And some won't listen when you talk to them /

I guess that's what sorts out the wheat from the chaff /
Those who want to stick around, keep on watching your back /
Some move to associates, and that seems a shame /
Won't ever get to pity poor me, again /

And I s'pose that's a reason to change how you treat some people, I'd say /
You shouldn't cut your own nose off, spiting your face /
But when it feels like they've turned, you can guess how I'm feeling today /
