You start to spread lies like a bad infection You took a big step but in the wrong direction You needed the money so you turned to crime You condone yourself all the time You start to lie to yourself and believe yourself too Now you're in a bad spot not much more you can do So you watch and you wait and you hope for the best but such simple plans just progressed and progressed (You're) knee deep in shit and still digging your hole For a new chance to start you would sell your soul but there's no easy way out, tell yourself you'll be fine and you'll be back on your feet again all in due time. Just wanna make sure that my message gets through from my brain to my mouth through the mic to you Living everyday like an obstacle course You're like f**ck that brass ring Im taking the horse You know you're chances are you wont survive So sit back clench your teeth and hold for the ride Because you scream at yourself like a man who's in Hell You cant believe you're just like the so many who've fell Just be cool you say, relax and stay calm (but) you know deep inside you cant take it for long Tried to good, all came out wrong you know deep inside you cant take it for long there's no easy way out, tell yourself you'll be fine and you'll be back on your feet again all in due time. You're at the end of your line and your end is in sight Scraping together your last bit of fight Weakened and blind as you crawl to the door but its locked and its blocked and not there anymore Step to the world, hold your head high Push away all the demons you have clawing inside there's no easy way out, tell yourself you'll be fine you'll be back on your feet again all in due time

Power 03:16
Do I have to be poor do I have to be black to have all this anger and want to attack I'm middle class and white a male suburbanite you may think Ive got it all but I still had to fight and they say that status makes life so much easier where did they grow up and who told them this bulls**t? Gotta gotta grow or you're gonna get stepped on I don't care if you're middle class black white rich or poor Gotta get yours gotta get more Gonna grow gonna be the opportunity whore fight to work fight to grow f**king fight to live if you push me enough somethings got to give and I don't give I cant Ive come too far to lose it I don't think I'm all hard core so I have to prove it Enemy you may think I got it easy but I still had to fight These aren't just words my emotions are raw I don't agree with that s**t so I go declare war stand up don't sit speak out don't ignore cause then its just a question of who wants it more who wants it more? Gonna grow gonna be the opportunity whore Enemy you may think I got it easy but I still had to fight all my enemies The s**t that's going down son, it just ain't right you're my enemy you may think I got it easy but I still had to fight all my enemies you're my enemies These aren't just words my emotions are raw I don't agree with that s**t so I go declare war stand up don't sit speak out don't ignore then its just a question of who wants it more who wants it more? Gonna grow gonna be the opportunity whore Enemy you may think I got it easy but I still had to fight all my enemies The s**t that's going down son it just ain't right You're my enemies

Phoenix 03:32
I bathe in this inferno may it cleanse my twisted soul as I render all my obstacles to mounds of shapeless coal and with this burning comes intense pain that reminds me I'm alive though there's flames that rage beneath my skin somehow I still survive Fire ate my weaknesses now just my strengths survive the harder that it is for me the better that I thrive I know I cant be beaten and I know you know it too Because I rise up from these ashes and there's nothing you can do You tried to kill this phoenix by engulfing it in flame but you only gave it power and immunity to pain I'll rise up from the ashes of the life you burned away and I'll still be as strong and ready as I was on any day So bring it on I dare you We'll see who walks away I rise up from these ashes no matter what you say Demons dance in my mind I refuse their cursed gift I try to block the pain but its all in vain and into darkness I drift and now this fires burning higher and this pain wont go away I give a silent scream like some demented dream I guess that's the price you pay When these flames begin to burn me I no longer wonder why The suffering I go through fills my emptiness inside

Direction 03:36
What you need in life is something to do Not easy for me, is it easy for you? Ive been shot down more than once before Yes I took my licks, but I cant take anymore So lets hear it now, lets see what you got Cant sit at the bottom, look up at the top Life takes a sharp turn, you've got to learn To deal with it, adapt, or else you'll get burned So where will I go? Where will I be? I wasted my time until time wasted me So what will I do where do I turn to now? I wasted all the time that I can allow. Ive got no direction. In need of correction. These clothes that I wear are my only possession, I'm f**ked. Enough of this ****, lets cut to the chase Spend most of my time just looking for my place So where will I go? Where will I be? I wasted my time until time wasted me Live grow and learn, that's what its about and what waits for me? Well, I guess I'll find out Life takes a sharp turn, you've got to learn To deal with it, adapt, or else you'll get burned Burned.

Me too 02:44
Me do you wanna be do you wanna be just like me I ask you why would you want to be wanna be like me you think you know what I'm all about (you've) never done the route so I really doubt you I'm here, right now, I'm me, not you. kinda like the attention that you're giving me wide eyes, taking notes but you cant see I am not what you think I am a little different than just a little better than... Why would you want to be me? I'm here, right now, I'm me, not you. I'm me, and you cant be me too.
