"WHAT MAKES A MAN"


1ST VERSE:


1) Word of advice, keep up ur left & float the right,
Might be the fight of your life, right? & won't happen twice.
2) Don't hide behind your doubt, no thoughts of cowering out,
That's not who you've ever been, a veteran of the now.
3) Broken down and bruised, used, you've paid all your dues,
Lose to win again sometimes, using your mind as your tool.
4) You left & rightin' em cool, calm, collected, it's true,
Knew when the situation's hectic, protected as time flew.
5) By for everyone else but it slowed down for yourself,
Your true knowledge of wealth shown, no talking through hell.
6) The bell rings every day, you work hard for your pay,
Lay the day on it's back, pack the bowl & you pray.
7) You're bones break in the fray, know that it's ending today,
So you keep going, wrap your wrists & keep on with the way.
8) That you were taught cause the metal that your made of will stand.
Damn what they think, you know what it takes to make a man.


WHAT MAKES A MAN?
Is it the fact that u fight for your beliefs?
Or the feelings that you have when you fighting to breath?
WHAT MAKES A MAN?
Is it that you're a father and a family man?
Or the feelings you hold back when controlling your hands?
WHAT MAKES A MAN?
The fact that you provide without thinking?
Or sinking feelings that you have that you're in danger of extinction?
WHAT MAKES A MAN?
Is it the fact that you can't stomach news
But teach your family everyday what it is to be true?
WHAT MAKES A MAN?

2ND VERSE:

1) If you fall, you get up. Say "fuck!", knock off the dust.
One of us, only trust in yourself to finish up.
2) Miniature...are all of these people claiming they tough,
They never seeing or believing the demons you fight and punk.
3) Shotgun...pump, you're heart's beating, pushing poison to meet with
This world is in season, PULL!.....another gone, moving seamless.
4) You can't copy the scene list or rock in my genes, it's,
You're built or you're not, you either fail or you're dean's list.
5) I mean this, don't classify a man by a penis,
This shit is called moxy, like boxing, a dying species.
6) So you, read my theses & feed the beastie,
And, don't be ashamed of testosterone, WE THE CHIEFS &.
7) Still smoke like Indians & drink like fish &
Realize that you're a pirate in a world full of wigs.
8) Rep yo shit! Anti-antidisestablishmentarianist
I'm a man with my word and my balls & that's it. Believe.
