I have this fire deep down inside of me,
I gotta set it out, let it go, and set it free.
But I have a fear, not knowing how it would be.
Is it good, is it worthy? I need myself to see.
How it would manifest, take its form, be the best,
Is it bland, is it sharp? this is the real test.
Is it unique, is it special, or is it just like the rest?
Mine WILL be the best, do not contest
Mine will be the first, Iím just too freaking obsessed

I will be at the top,
Iíll give it all that I got,
I have no hope but ill still give it a shot.
A failure wont even harm me a lot.
ĎCuz Iím more determined than ever, a failure just fuels the flame,
I just donít care, losing donít even cause me no shame.
I gotta lift my head up to stop liviní in the past,
Look to the future, damn this, I ainít gonna be last.

All those people laughing and jeering at me,
Calling me a chink and a low and dirty refugee.
First it all worked, and it caused me to run and flee,
But now Iím back, and more determined than any emcee!
Most people are in it for the riches and fame,
I donít care, it donít matter, I wont give them no blame,
But not me. Nope, no ones in the position that Iím in.
I do what I do for the pure bliss of rhyminí.

I will be at the top,
Give it all that I got,
I Have no hope but ill still give it a shot.
A failure wont even harm me a lot.
ĎCuz Iím more determined than ever, a failure just fuels the flame,
I just donít care, losing donít even cause me no shame.
I gotta lift my head up to stop living in the past,
Look to the future, damn this, I ainít gonna be last.

I will not settle for anything less than number one,
I will not rest until I get this task done.
I will keep on going, and damn this ainít fun
This war with everybody has only begun.
So you better watch out, or your soul I will shatter,
And hand you your butt on a bright, silver platter,
Even if youíre weak, I donít care, it donít matter,
When Iím through with you, yaíll be crazier than the mad hatter.
