Show No Fear

Original and similar lyrics
i will not hesitate, if i wait, i give in to chance and i cant live life that way. can you read my face, theres no way i'll turn and walk away so just make your mistake. so when the time comes i dont care, when the time comes i'll be there, when the time comes show no fear, cuz its time and im right here. i will not lose face, i'll save, everything i am cuz thats just how i was made. i will not hesitate, if i wait i give into chance and i cant live life that way. a wise man once said to me æ'on, dont you ever back down to no one? cuz i'll be there, dont show no fear.

Life In One Day

HOWARD JONES "Dream Into Action"
The old man said to me Said don't always take life so seriously Play the flute And dance and sing your song Try and enjoy the here and now The future will take care of itself somehow The grass is never greener over there Time will wear away the stone Gets the hereditary bone [Chorus:] Don't try to live your life in one day Don't go speed your time away Don't try to live your life in one day Don't go speed your time away The old man said to me Said you can't change the world single-handedly Raise a glass enjoy the scenery Pretend the water is champagne And fill my glass again and again While the wolves are gathering round your door Time will wear away the stone Gets the hereditary bone The old man said to me Said don't always take life so seriously Play the flute And dance and sing your song Try and enjoy the here and now The future will take care of itself somehow The grass is never greener over there Time will wear away the stone Gets the hereditary bone I tried to live my life in one day Don't go speed your time away I bit off more than I can chew Only so much you can do Wolves are gathering round my door Ask them in and invite some more I tried to live my life in one day Don't go speed your time away

I Tried

JIN "Say Something"
You know I had to say something Jin Do I wait for the beat to drop or do I start here? Check it Forget waitin', this ain't a feature, this is my tape Time waits for no man so why the heck should I wait? I could probably run this town if I'd like but I'm straight Take a walk in my shoes if you choose size 8 You might just feel the presence of the Holy Spirit They say I'm a changed man, if the shoe fits wear it I used to think that this was just all entertainment So I did and said anything I could get away with Any consequences, I'm the one that's gotta live with it The last thing I'm tryna be now is a hypocrite Cause it boils down to way more than what I write Ultimately I'm defined by how I live my life Knew I had to change my ways and believe in what's right Til this day I still got my own demons to fight If I had to do it on my own, no doubt I'd be a goner But I will be victorious cause God is in my corner The freedom of expression is truly a gift It can be used to destroy or used to uplift If I had to list my flaws there's plenty I could mention But through it all I never had any bad intentions Never thought the youth would take heed to what I say First and foremost I apologize for leadin' you astray Movin' right along, now's the time to right the wrongs So I think long and hard before I start to write a song Cause as an artist for every track that you create Ain't no way to know the type of impact you can make On one person or society as a whole I'm hopin' through these lines you can see inside my soul Take a long hard look and you'll start to see the light It's an autobiographical story of my life On the cover just a plain book, here's the missin' factor I'm still the same book, y'all, just on a different chapter The next generation is headed for disaster Rappers blamin' parents and the parents blame the rappers A lack of substance, what you hear is so hollow I feel you, you ain't here to be nobody's role model I know you're tryna eat, no lie, so am I You shouldn't be offended if what I say just don't apply We need more of the truth than the game instead of less It's bigger than Hiphop, Dead Prez said it best You're probly listenin' like "Who's this guy to tell me how to live?" You're right, I don't know you but I know I'm positive If it's in my power to extend a helpin' hand Not even as a rapper, but as a fellow man This is good versus evil, it's time to choose a side I will never be perfect but at least I know I tried Uh, Say Something

Godlovesugly

ATMOSPHERE "God Loves Ugly"
I wear my scars like the rings on a pimp I live life like the captain of a sinking ship The one thing that i can guarantee I'm like a stepping razor, i suggest you stay fair with me Been payin dues for a decade plus, Before that i was just another face on the bus Tappin my foot, to the beat on the radio Dreamin 'bout the mic and the money and the ladies Oh mom, i promise im gonna be large Someday im gonna stop tryin to borrow your car Gonna go far, with charisma and skill Until they put my face on a million dollar bill Atmosphere, its just a ten letter word Discretion is the name of my cement-feathered bird And if you didnt hear, fuck whatevers heard I think you got the sickness i suggest you get it cured Caught up in the mix, of a bottle full of fix Im gonna hobble down the street 'til i reach knob creek Its not that i dont like you, i just dont wanna speak You fuckin freak Now keep your days out my week The world keeps a balance, through mathematics Defined by whatever youve added and subtracted Im pushin on the hammer, to trigger the brain Embrace how i live it, god loves ugly [chorus] God loves ugly... Once upon a time in minneapolis, yo I damn near had to steal the show I stepped on the stage, who is it? My names slug ive come to kill a couple minutes Whats up with the way, that everybody gathers around each other So they can steal each others sound If its all about gettin down with the get down How long i gotta wait for these fools to sit down? Appears more clear in its simplest form Nobody sees tears when youre standing in a storm Abandoning the norm, and handling the harvest Measuring the worth by the depth of the hardships I welcome all the hatred you can aim at my name I held on to the sacred ways of how to play the game When the soldiers started runnin short on rations I began tappin the egg, to spark the hatchin Make it happen And take this captain to the gallows I keep steerin us into an area thats shallow Talkin to my shadow, he advised me not to worry He said i should plant my tree and let it rise out of the fury So give me some light, a little love and some liquid Im gonna creep through the night And put a plug in the spigot And when the water grows And the dam starts to overflow Ill float atop the flood, holding on to my ugly [chorus] Why scream, when you can lose yourself inside the wide-screen Let life be a bowl of melted ice cream Or be the deer thats caught in my high beams Im rollin with the lights on, scared stiff Reality is just too much to bear with Paranoid, walkin around careless No wonder youre in love with your therapist Go to sleep my little time bomb

Do You Know Who I Am

ELVIS PRESLEY "Suspicious Minds"
(Words music by Russell) Do you know who I am Have you have any idea who I am Yes it's been quite a while And it's so good to see you again It's so dark in this place That I can't see your face May believe Oh I see Does he know who I am And what once was between you and me Do you know how I tried Have you any idea how I tried Not to keep you in sight Do you know darling how much I cried I remember you said That you had to forget about me, and be free Do you know who I am or have you forgot about me Do you think there's a chance You and I could start over again Is there a prayer you still pray Or has it just been too long and we're through Well, what about you and him Oh he's only a friend Well I see there's still a chance for me Well maybe some other time, in some other place With our love in your heart and a smile on your face You will know who I am When that time comes you'll know who I am You will know who I am When that time comes you'll know who I am You will know who I am When that time comes you'll know who I am
