(You know, I've always been an underdog...)

Born out from an angry woman to an empty room
Born with just a name and lots of hand-me-downs too
Open sky, no parade
Same old thing every day
Boys are born to fight the wars
But I was always told to run away (away, away, away)
Son, don't leave your home, you wouldn't make it anyway

Someday you're gonna find my face
Don't forget what the young man says
Someday you're gonna scream my name
Don't forget what the young man says
What the young man says
What the young man says
What the young man says
What the young man says

Now here I go again, trappin'
I tried to stay away
And I did for 'bout a day but K I Z keep it crackin
They say breathe easy
even my daddy and my mama say it's drama but mama these streets need me
they say that they couldn't understand, I know
trouble easy to find and hard to lose and blase blah but on the other hand
it's hard to find a nine to five still wouldn't justify these hard times
I have a hard time just tryin to find a ride
That's just excuses, excuses, and it's a dog eat dog world
And kill or be killed, move it or lose it
They say I, I got a lot to learn and money ain't everything
But fuck being broke, shit, I'd rather have a lot to burn
I got a son to raise, he gotta eat, man
I carry heats, man, cuz I got funds to raise
And I'm gonna be somebody, someday

Someday you're gonna find my face (Someday)
Don't forget what the young man says
Someday you're gonna scream my name (One day)
Don't forget what the young man says
Someday you're gonna find my face (One day)
Don't forget what the young man says
Someday you're gonna scream my name (Someday)
Don't forget what the young man says (One day)

(Mims!)

They say everything in life has contrast
Everything has a flip side like a timeglass
If you ain't tryin to succeed, then you ain't in my class
You ain't the type of person that I welcome in my path
You wanna see struggle? Take a journey through my past
And now as I laugh, I hold up my glass
My cup runneth over
Til my wine spilleth I fill it with more
Underdog, man, I did it a million and more
Your ceiling is my floor
My penthouse views
If hate shall fuel me, just imagine what doubt do
What I amount to, I did it without you
All my niggas, we grind, we did it without loot
Truth, my success is my proof
As I soiled my root, know my reward is my fruit
That's why I live it to my limit in all that I do...live for

Someday you're gonna find my face
Don't forget what the young man says (Someday)
Someday you're gonna scream my name (That's right)
Don't forget what the young man says (What the young man says)
Someday you're gonna find my face (What the young man says)
Don't forget what the young man says (Remember what the young man says)
Someday you're gonna scream my name (That's right)
Don't forget what the young man says
What the young man says
What the young man says (What the young man say)
What the young man says (What the young man says)
What the young man says (Yeah)
