Verse 1
finger tips are tapping tables while i sit with bad posture
foster better options minus all the cost to solve 'em
expression pays a price and it's forgotten all to often
impressing on these kids, my legacy won't be left in a coffin
it'll live on through this song and all the others that I've penned
at the point about to break because my will will never bend
and you don't have to like me or have me signed your dotted lines
in the industry or underground, independent's doing me fine
so cry wolf or be quiet, I've facilitated my surroundings
allowed some things to happen and i created all the boundaries
crossed the eyes and broke the tees, started fights and spoke my piece
closely hoped for homes to be only those that are supposed to be
Strong, even after all this junk i believe in living long
singing songs of hopefulness while pushing past the wrong
go on with that trash talk, clang your symbols and gongs
logging all the after hours, it's simple, I'm singing the hook with God

Verse 2
Never once when I first glimpsed upon this mission filling my wishing
Ever expect to find desire to further acquire the wealth and riches
Of an accomplished set musician without remorse in acquisition
Gaining the world without relinquishing my soul’s a juxtaposition
From the effort I emit when my thoughts transmit through pens
To grace the loose-leaf college ruled to mics in booths and then
When it’s tracked and bounced and mastered properly packaged for these kids
You can approach me ever so slowly with your swagger and begin
To try to seduce the Alabaster Kin with coin and push an opposing grin
This independent racquet keeping my lights on when employment ends
And I can’t thank my fans enough, checking for change and passing up
These other heads and scrapping up enough to purchase never was
And keeping me going and moving along to bless you with the stimulus
It’s people like you that keep me doing just what I do and that’s a plus
And I won’t front I never once thought the trials would miss me but
I figured it’s something you’d need to know, you cats is making me change and grow
