lyrics

Just ‘cause you made it to the top, doesn’t mean you worked the hardest to get there.
I scaled this summit on my own. I wasn’t privileged with your stairs.
Don’t underestimate what you don’t understand.
Some people get a free ride. I get by the only way I can.

I may be poor, but you're cheap.
I may struggle, but it's you who's weak.
Dodging bullets until I drop a bomb.
Maybe it ain’t right, BUT YOU’RE WRONG.

It’s not the man in the fight, it’s the fight in the man.
This isn’t a war that you can win.
The crowd fills the air with their applause,
‘cause I don’t get even...
I BEAT THE ODDS!

Keep running your mouth. Yea, we know it’s just for show.
Only thing bigger than your mouth IS YOUR EGO.

If you don’t wanna be talked down to, don’t get short with me then.
I’ll do whatever it takes to win. IF YOU CAN’T JOIN ‘EM, beat ‘em.

Do you get it? Does it click?
Speaking ill of others, but it’s you who’s sick.
Talk your trash, but the garbage is you.
Just because you aged, DON’T MEAN YOU GREW.

It’s not the man in the fight, it’s the fight in the man.
This isn’t a war that you can win.
The crowd fills the air with their applause,
‘cause I don’t get even...

You’re an instigator with no fight.
Got a lot of bark, but you got no bite.
Now you’ve hit the floor, it’s not my fault.
You overlooked the UNDERDOG.
I SEE THE LIGHTNING, BUT I FEEL NO THUNDER.
SHOULDN’T’VE WOKEN ME FROM MY SLUMBER.
NOW YOU WITHDRAW AS FEAR ENGULFS,
WHEN THE UNDERDOG BECOMES THE WOLF.

It’s not the man in the fight, it’s the fight in the man.
This isn’t a war that you can win.
Crowds fill the air with their applause,
‘cause I don’t get even...
I BEAT THE ODDS!
