[Verse 1]
I'm trying to take this to majors
So fuck the haters with razors
The glaciers are melting and I ain't helping the way I'm blazing
So tell these fucking Geishas I'm coming from Asia
To pave the way for the next age of Fraziers
I'mma set the phasers from stun to kill
Expose the matrix, I'm the one for real
Big as a whale and this industry is tons of krill
Tons of skill I display, but I wonder still
Will they accept me for being human
I asked my brother and he just stuttered like Ruben
The truth is everything is powered by us all consuming
So they'll never back somebody talking growth and revolution
Refusing to keep looping in the cycle of the gibberish
I tell them I'mma fly to the sky then they call me Icarus
So I'mma be the vessel for his dreams, even if it means
Struggling against the Sun's beams

[Hook]
Cause even if they burn my wings I'mma rise from the ashes
Cause time heals all, and I'll fly when it passes
They're looking for chances to learn my weakness
But you're never gonna burn the Phoenix

You can't burn me, no you can't burn me (2x)

[Verse 2]
I'm fucking sick of tellin people that I flow
And they take a look at me and think I'm never goin pro
Like homie you don't know me so blow me and fucking choke
On the slick shit I spit that I just motherfucking wrote
I hope I can cope with the lack of recognition
And keep doing it for the love of rap and what it's missing
Only thing I'm trynna do is stay true to my reflection
Because the man in the mirror is the only one I haven't been impressin'
I'm stressin' over everything, I'm kind of in a tough spot
Teachers ask me all the time why my eyes are bloodshot
Because I haven't been to sleep in a week
And I try to call home but end up talking to the beep
Writers block every time I listen to a beat
Feeling like I just started but already hit the peak
I'm way too young for such a midlife crisis
So I'm makin sacrifices, I'm willing to pay the prices
Cause what the fuck am I good enough to do besides this
So I'm floatin' in the ocean just hopin' the tide shifts
Never sure if anybody bumping my shit
I'm just trynna keep the faith but feeling agnostic
But I will not quit, fuck all the gibberish
I'll fly to the sky just to rewrite Icarus
So I'mma be the vessel for his dreams, even if it means
Struggling against the Sun's beams

[Hook]
Cause even if they burn my wings I'mma rise from the ashes
Cause time heals all, and I'll fly when it passes
They're looking for chances to learn my weakness
But you're never gonna burn the Phoenix

You can't burn me, no you can't burn me (4x)
