lyrics

Once upon a grind
I was working overtime
With an open mind
Trying to live
In a crib that wasn't mine
Splitting up my time
With the children on the line
Killing all the lies
To make a living off of rhymes
If you're missing all the signs
Listen to my lines
Help you find
Your mission or decide
What you're missing by design
This is all just kind
Of wishing on a prime
Vision for mankind
To enlist them all to shine
Add in wisdom most divine
Multiply that don't divide
Against divisions from all sides
We can win it all and tie
Whether sporting suit and tie
Or Mikey Soaring McFly
Don't deny the homeless guy
It could be an angel in disguise
On the internet are spies
All hoaxes aside
The jail coach is their ride
Until the poor folks rise

(Chorus)
Move fast
Work on dreams and let some pass
Make yourself something that nobody else has
Make yourself make yourself
Something that will last
Make yourself something that nobody else has

Make yourself some good work
Let your hands speak volumes
Still talking to myself
As I'm addressing all you
I'm no emcee
I'm just a master of me
Mocking mockeries at mach 13
With a formless poem
Formula free
Focused for a forum of peace
Performed for them
For them to see
A focused ki
Vocally feel the dopamine
Provoking your broken dreams
To reform to be spoken in deeds
Loans and degrees
Or "lb"s of trees
Falling burning where nobody sees
They take a fourth of the week
From the meek's tock tick
Talk rich to the weak
And pay cheap to zip
Plot is thick chip chop it down
And build a house quick out of bricks
And lock it down

(Chorus)
Move fast
Work on dreams and let some pass
Make yourself something that nobody else has
Make yourself make yourself
Something that will last
Make yourself something that nobody else has

The road to Hades is paved
With gold stones laid
By those that craved to get paid
Off the bones of slaves
I'm not naive
If I'm not trying your trash
Life's a pitch then you buy it
So I'll be rich
Even without cash
While they buy out and get bailed out
To their hideouts with no mail route
What they lie about
We complain about
That's why I ain't about
Just laying about
What we pay for
They steal back
When it rains it pours
Can't conceal that
They drape the poor in their paper stacks
Every major store breaks the labored back
With a label stamp like a labor camp
If we control what we spend
Then their control would end
Work well together
Is all I recommend
It'd be the wreck of men
To just rely on the president
Because on our day of reckoning
What takes precedence
Make your words relevant
Display your intelligence

(Chorus)
Move fast
Work on dreams and let some pass
Make yourself something that nobody else has
Make yourself make yourself
Something that will last
Make yourself something that nobody else has
