You see me running but you don't know what
I'm running from
My own weakness
Come on, I've got to speak this truth
When I'm losin' my direction
I run that self-inspection, I learn my lessons well
Yo I fell hard, you see me gettin up
I'm fucking up adversity
In a temporary state of clarity
Hmmm, life is a parody, paradox
Enigma I shed that skin with the stigma

Roll on to the next day
Confusin' all my critics with these topics
Various, versatile, universal, satirical
Analytical, personal, political
You cynical MC's, you can't see these ryhmes
Comin' with reason, my eyes are open wide
The havenots keep hopin'
My words are spoken
The chosen will someday be broken
And see how their gods have all fallen

You don't understand why it's so damn easy
Can't understand why it's so fuckin easy
So how you like it like it now
Yeah, yeah, right, whatever, whatever
Well Mr. Fucking Know-It-All, he got all the answers
Knows all about the "industry", he ain't shit to me
I got skills yo, I'm the contender, I'll rock your party 'til
The motherfuckin' roof come in
Yeah, it's on fire burn like that pussy in da morning
Had all night to simmer
Young girl wake up, the dick be in her, already
I was fuckin' when she had her first Barbie
Easy Bake Oven, she was pissin' in her panties
Ain't shit, she can do that ain't been done
Ain't nothin wrong with you girl
I ain't the one

Yeah come on, but you can't understand
Why it's so damn easy
Can't understand why it's so fuckin' easy
So how you like it like it now
You can't understand why it's so damn easy
Can't understand why it's so fuckin' easy
You can't understand why, why, why.

I tried the way the way was not mine
If I get lost don't try to find me
My kind got left behind
Yeah so how you gonna
Show me the way when it's not mine
How you gonna show me the way
When your ass is blind
Your way, one way, but not mine
I'd rather be left behind
Where is your salvation
When will it come?
Wrong

How does it feel
How does it feel now
How does it feel
How does it feel
Punks jump up to get beat
Punks jump up to get beat down

So many tried to make me feel like an outcast
Put me to the test, yo again I pass
Check out the flying colors
All the sisters and brothers by my side
Still we ride with pride
U. N. I. T. Y.
That's what calls me, same destination
We keep our salvation within
Givin' all that I got for the future
Knowin' that my journey yo will never be over
I already told ya with them loops that we flowed ya
Knowledge, wisdom, and experience can mold ya
Hold on to your mom's and your soul, yes
Ya stay true to yourself
All else will follow ya
This brother's goin' deep... A little deeper

Just another man with a plan and a seed we can grow
I'll let you know just who and what I am
So what the fuck do they want from me?
Why do they fuck with me
The headnigga is just another human being
Got my head up in the sky, walkin' feet above the ground
Oh yes much pussy to the left
Pendejos to the right of me
Who think they know it
Yeah I tried the way
But the way was not mine
I tried the way the way was not mine
Your way, one way, but not mine
Now let's see who gets left behind, come on

How does it feel, how does it feel
Punks jump up to get beat punks jump up to get beat down

    General CommentThey should make high schoolers study these fuckin lyrics!!!
    When I'm losin my direction
    i run that self-inspection I learn my lessons well
    Yo I fell hard you see me gettin up
    i'm fucking up adversity
    in a temporary state of clarity
    Hmmm, life is a parody, paradox
    enigma I shed that skin with the stigma
    roll on to the next day
    He's saying that we learn new things every day that make us do self-reflections and become new people and therefore change as humans. He's basically complaining in this song that people keep trying to tell him who to be and how to act when they have no more of an idea than he does about this world.
    "If I get lost don't try to find me!!" "Your way one way, but not mine!"
    And the last lines are from an older punk song
    Punks jump up to get beat punks jump up to get beat down
