[Verse 1: D-Pryde]
By the time you'll hear this, I probably already flew away
Told me I wouldn't fly, but who the hell are you to say that I can't grow a pair of wings and do it?
I throw my wings and spread 'em to the sky and try to leave this chicken coupe one day
You can leave and try to hate from a glance
Just know that in my life 'til now, nobody gave me a chance
Misunderstood, more than anything, in fact, all my fun fell
Feeling like I'm lifting backpacks full of dumbbells
Stop thinking I'll be off and away
Saying my, heads in the clouds, but my body's in space
And even if you take these glasses off my face
I'm still focused on my goal to keep the dominant place
Brain's full of clear statements like, "You better achieve it."

I'm not giving up the only thing I ever believed in
If I'm cocky, I'm hiding the fact that I'm just too prideful
Actually, I take it back, I'll be cocky when I decide to

If mama's bending backwards to keep the family active
I'mma blast it with rap tactics so drastic so she’ll relax

In a million dollar house that I'll buy when I go platinum
Don't believe me now? Then believe my future
B.E.T. I'm bad at this, but I'm zooming up
Too cool for ya, but I'll prove hussy sissies I'm a balloon blown up
I don't care about you, if I'm rude, so what?
It feels so good to be more at it with pace
Feeling great, cause they always catch an orgasm off hate
If there's a time and place for fame then I don't plan to be late
Insult my dream? I'll tear your nose out of your face
And honestly, I'm really getting so proud of my race
Put an Asian hand in the air, we're no longer out of place
And if they say you can't do it because of your ethnicity
Then please turn examples or a reference into me
I'm so convinced that my ass will be next in history
Ahmir, hit this beat... yo

[Hook: Ahmir]

[Verse 2: Chilla Jones]
I wanna see a skyful
A delightful eyeful 'bout as high as the Eiffel
'Til the night's bright, the sight's so insightful
So why they wanna rifle shoot down and stifle our dreams?
With a spiteful face, they frightful
I'm just trying to find my rightful place
But there's a whole lot of riddles in the rap game
But I'm the one, you can see it in the middle of my last name (Jones)
Blood, sweat, and tears, I'm dedicated
Dropped out, so they say I'm uneducated
Before I hit rock bottom, I levitated
(I was) Beyond devastated (but strong) I never faded
Tried to end the dram', they wan' escalate it
Tried to pull me down to the ground, I elevated
Played on, stayed calm, and I meditated
Now I'm an A-bomb with napalm detonated
I know you fellas waited
It's like an acid rainstorm, whenever I brainstorm, umbrellas hate it
I gotta-g-gotta go 'til my fountain stops
'Til I'm c-c-counting guap on the mountain top
Without balance or t-t-talent, they finally drop
I f-f-found a spot, they j-j-jotting verses around the clock
I'm innovating, they imitating the style
I got them c-c-cocky and they just c-c-copying how I rock
I'm hot, and this really should make it clear for you
I know you mad and I'm here for you
D-Pryde, J-Reyez, Chilla Jones and Ahmir for you
Trust, you can't compare us to a mere mortal
So strong, they hated for so long
I waited and transformed and made it to Voltron
And if it all goes wrong, I can't back out
Cause I bring a lighter in the booth, man, I black out

[Hook: Ahmir]

[Verse 3: J. Reyez]
Mr. J-R-E-Y-E-Z
By the time you hear this, I would've already made my mark
In the world
, going far, everything I say is from the heart
Every moment from the start, my people got guided me through it
Trying to make this music, never losing, I'mma keep it moving
You're looking stupid if you hating someone you don't know
I see a glance of the future, see the greatness down the road
Gotta plan, and a fewer mistakes I won't make
And fate is so great, today is a good day
And life just gets better, when you appreciate
So put your lighters up, let's all seize the day
And live for the moment, get a cam and record it
And you can't ignore it, you gotta go feel awarded
I know it's hard, but you can never scheme to forfeit
I'm still the same little kid with a dream before this
You gotta go and own it, this is the right time
Celebrating with a cup of last night's wine

[Verse 4: Mr. Jones]
So the moral of the story is, no matter who you are
You, too, can be glorious
, don't let 'em tear your dreams apart
Every celebrity was told they couldn't be a star
Don't let a slice to your psyche remain and be a scar
You got the brain, you got the heart, courage
All from God, you ain't gotta go to Oz
because
Everything you need, it lies within
So push towards what you believe when lies begin
I remember in September when the label said, "Amazing"
Put your name on this page, and we will take you in

Good thing Ahmir persevered
Yeah, never let them haters win
Patient waiters, this finally about to serve like we catering
So bottom line is, I control my destiny
Screw jealousy and the rest of that garbage that you telling me
Get out of here, doubt in fear, my enemy
You're like a mattress salesman, I'm sleeping on what you selling me

[Bridge: Ahmir]
You and I know what it's like
To be kicked down, forced to fight
But tonight, we're all right
So hold up your lights
Let it shine


[Hook: Ahmir]
