DMX:

Uh. Yea. Uh. If you love something let it go, if it
Comes back to you it's yours. If it doesn't, it never was

Hold me down baby

Chorus(2x):
Either let me fly, or give me death
Let my soul rest, take my breath
If I don't fly I'mma die anyway, I'mma live on
But I'll be gone any day


Hold me down, niggas wanna know me now
Didn't want ta play wit' me when to show me how
No meow
Cause its all about the bark

Let the dog loose baby it's about to spark
Light up the night, like the 4th of July
Niggas know, when I let go, niggas die
Wit' this Y and you don't know you slow like Baltimore
If you ain't tryin' ta go ya blow

I soak up all the pain and accept it in silence
When I let go it's violence
cause the wildest
Leaves the dog barkin' up the tree for the cat
In the fog but ya'll niggas see is the bat
Flappin' away but I'm blind like Stevie
Niggas don't hear me, still tryin' to see me
Stop being greedy, you heard what I said
Let me go, let me flow on my bed


Chorus(2x)

I sold my soul to the devil, and the price was cheap
Ayo it's cold on this level, cause it's twice as deep

But you don't hear me, ignorance is bliss and so on
Sometimes it's better to be thought dumb
Shall I go on
Yo, on the real, what the deal is a mystery
How is it I can live and make history?
If you don't see it then it, then it wasn't meant for you to see
If you wasn't born wit' it then, it wasn't meant for you to be

But you can't blame me for not wantin' to be held
Locked down in a cell where a soul can't dwell

This is hell, go get the devil and give me the key
But can't be worst than the curse that was given to me
It's what I live for, you take away that and I'm gone

There's a difference between, doin' wrong and being wrong
And that ain't right

Just keep it fair baby
Put me in the year, and I'll take it there baby
Yes

Chorus(2x)

I'mma flow regardless because I'm an artist until I'm trapped
I'mma continue to hit the hardest whether I scrap or rap
Give me dap but you ain't my friend
I see it in your eyes, you contemplate my end

You waitin' for that bend in the road, where you were told
That you would go, when you were old
And if you died young, it was cold
Sold... for nearly what it was worth
Think back 26 years, be like what if his birth
Was a miscarriage and I never existed

Have I given something that have been taken away you'd have missed it
Didn't know, yet I persisted
It was the call of the wild
I merely say what's in my heart, and you call it a style
Don't put it in the cage, don't mistreat it

You say you hunger for knowledge, here it is eat it
Another song completed is another thought captured
Let me do my thing I got it locked wit' this rap shit

Chorus(2x)

Or give me death, uh uh uh, or take my breath
I'mma die anyway, but I'll be gone any day
Where my niggas ?
(3x)Uh ha ha, for my niggas
