lyrics

I've gotta chip on my shoulder,
But I've been getting much bolder.
I’ve got words coming out the way I wanna say with no delay,
I portray what's on my mind today, black and white their ain't to gray.
No confusion I'm straight shootin’
Working hard is what I'm doin’
Can I have your attention please.
Don't ever tell me that I can't do it,
Imma get to work and then I'll prove it.
I’m tired of everyone doubting me.
Imma do what I need to do to be me.
I’ve been workin’ my tail off for four full years,
I’ve been doin’ what I can to get me here,
Don't tell me that I don't belong right here.
Do you see these eyes? I know no fear.
I work real hard I did my time,
It's DIY until I die.
Do it everyday.
Do it everyday.
DIY until I die,
Independent Open eye.
Clear vision, on a mission,
What I do is my decision.
Do it every day.
Do it everyday.
DIY until I die.
Do it everyday.
Do it everyday.
DIY until I die.

This song goes out to those who wouldn't booked me.
This song goes out to those who underpaid me.
This song goes out to those who never believed in me.
This song goes out to those with negativity.
This song goes out to those in my home town,
Who never been to a show to see my live sound.
This song goes out to locals not sticking around.
This song goes out to suckers just like them.

This verse is not my final, still look up to my idols,
They gave me inspiration when I felt so suicidal.
Tendencies to Rise Against anyone back in the scene,
With a negative approach as I’m still living my dream.
I still represent the bay like Steph Curry here’s the remedy,
Down on Greenpoint Ave I’m blasting the dead kennedys.
You haters are Fugazi, I make it rain like Slayer.
Still a Minor Threat even though this G is major.
And I see the earth in crisis, so I’m Sick of it all,
When I see the Youth Today on their iPhones at the mall.
I just want to Pierce the Veil, only for a minute, man,
I’ve always been a misfit since I toured with Simple Plan.
So Myles here’s a tip - keep grinding it will happen,
You spend your mornings rapping, they spend their weekends napping,
And trapping well not really but their Facebook game is solid.
I’d rather spend my day with a coffee reading Ovid

Hard work pays that's what they always told me,
And Now I'm payed the suckers who owe me tryna get ahold of me.
What am I supposed to do about that?
How am I supposed to react?
Should I smile, ignore the fact and just come back?
No No No!
I'd rather eat a sucker,
Kill a sucker dead.
Eat a sucker,
Kill a sucker dead.

This song goes out to those who wouldn't booked me.
This song goes out to those who underpaid me.
This song goes out to those who never believed in me.
This song goes out to those with negativity.
This song goes out to those in my home town,
Who never been to a show to see my live sound.
This song goes out to locals not sticking around.
This song goes out to suckers just like them.
