Look past the apartments, over the train
Under the projects, all that remains is
Petty crime and polution tell me where did all this shit come from?

Challenge and oppurtunity
Challenge and oppurtunity
Rise above the smoke and debri
Rise above the smoke and debri

Brooklyn, New York that's where we dwell
And to a lot of people it's a living hell
Full of frustration and poverty
But wait, that's just how it used to be

CHALLENGE!
CHALLENGE!
RISE ABOVE!
RISE ABOVE!

CHALLENGE! (and oppurtunity)
CHALLENGE! (and oppurtunity)
RISE ABOVE! (the smoke and debri)
RISE ABOVE! (the smoke and debri)

Two wheels bust, so thats how we almost crashed.
But we had to laugh
Five years past so fast but we had a blast
Was this meant to last? Fuck it I don't know!

CHALLENGE!
CHALLENGE!
RISE ABOVE!
RISE ABOVE!

CHALLENGE! (and oppurtunity)
CHALLENGE! (and oppurtunity)
RISE ABOVE! (the smoke and debri)
RISE ABOVE! (the smoke and debri)
