lyrics

I lit the match that sparked the first flame in the age of discovery that braved us change,
I forged the fire of my reign on the edge of insanity I can't sustain,
And yet I stayed, ready to face whatever the age'd muster it could throw my way,
wander over the embers, the centered over the edges, that legends fear with a vengeance, yet they call my name

where were you when the minutes were short and every moment you waited was something all too strange,
I came from days where the pain woulda kept you spinning and'd made you play
I call it a hunger, you call it something the wonder, I bleed into a thunder that you can't explain,
I grew up in the age of arcades where the only way you considered is what you made,

I fear what fate cannot teach me, I see myself in my rage,
I see darkness cloak over the future preying under the ink fading of my page,
I stand admist the black fog that clouds every psalm in the frightening wake,
tightening it's grip, worried I'm gonna slip, but I keep my pace,

and my arms still shake, who is afraid to face death like it's something you can't embrace,
Fear time, for what reason am I, the back over and line if I feel it quake,
and I still can't break, here is the moment you either make your mark or you could save you grace,
fear what death? I ain't scared of nothing, you either fear legacy or you take it's place

I see the world in my shadow, I see the future take hold,
I stand against the last man a fire in my hands as I speak my soul
I can't fold, either I am stronger in the mind and goal or I'm far too bold,
there is no gold in the triumph of a roll but a spirit in the fight that can keep me whole,

In my prime,
I am the strength of every rhyme defined that can keep me live,
revived into minds of those ready to find and fight over the climb to reach my height,
And I ain't afraid to make whatever the range is left over the grade just to take my start
make my mark, and I ain't dead yet, wanna kill me off, better take my heart,

I ain't scared of the rest or prepared for test to ensnare what the end couldn't fare,
those who would share or would die like the air hadn't lungs here bare are just worse for the wear,
I come too far here to fall too long and wither away gone or be thought too wrong,
go for broke or die a joke, and Do I look like unphased here like my breaths all gone,

naw, cause You ain't gonna break me now, less my legs give out, and I lose my sound,
I am the defintion of the quintessential existence and Ima keep the position,
unless you murder attrition, or wish it into a victom,
till then you then you gonna just listen, cause you ain't changin me different, Cause I gonna back down,


There was a time, where arcadias line was greater and more refined, than the home I know,
Where the lights and the hype of a night at a golfland tournament could help us grow,
and there is something in warriors dream, that never gives us a future that we ever conceive,
and to believe in uncertainty is some berieved, cause all time in unkind if you want to proceed,

I saw the lights go do burn out in the middle of stage as my hands grew cold,
I saw the flashes fade over the masses, fire turned ash and the new grow old,
and I hoped as the earth seemed cloak in the shadow of ends of the city broke,
that wished my demise, as they closed my eyes, while they laid me down and I whispered -- no,

WHO SAID THAT THE LIGHTS STAY GONE, WHEN ARCADIA SCREAMS WHEN THEY TURN ME ON,
WHO SAID THE CITY HAD DIED OUT, WHENEVER I CRY OUT AND THEY HEAR MY SONG,
I BLEED INK FROM THE EDGE OF MY PALMS, AND TIME FEARS ME AS IT SEEMS SO CALM,
you could tell me it's nothing more unsteady, and none of us at the ready and you seem so WRONG,

I don't fear time, fate has proven my page as something to stay while the light still shines,
I am blueprint defintion of music showered over the proof that you can't unsign,
Don't fear the future which people as a clueless illusion like we are all but the last in line,
well I'ma keep on rocking the asphalt, with an uppercut and knock out, ONE MORE TIME,

I see the world in my shadow, I see the future take hold,
I stand against the last man a fire in my hands as I speak my soul
I can't fold, either I am stronger in the mind and goal or I'm far too bold,
there is no gold in the triumph of a roll but a spirit in the fight that can keep me whole,

In my prime,
I am the strength of every rhyme defined that can keep me live,
revived into minds of those ready to find and fight over the climb to reach my height,
And I ain't afraid to make whatever the range is left over the grade just to take my start
make my mark, and I ain't dead yet, wanna kill me off, better take my heart,

And I keep on moving, keep my aim, till I'm all but dust and my pace keeps drained,
but I still remain in the spirit of name that is more game played money or for fame,
There power is words that can strike at third with a mic and verb and the hunger of the thirst,
to more than stone that they step for the bones, like I never came up like I stayed here alone,

with like half of the impact, people who think back, tellin us that after the last laugh, we wouldn't go past that
I am odyssey, second star or the prodigy, something you always saught to be,
honestly i'm a prophecy, I ain't dead but I outta be, yet I aint ready turn whatever is stuck in me audibly, none you people stoppin me
cause ima world Warrior, Life for the fight,
I been here 25 years and I'm still damn hype,
