Fire from a rocket, bulb in the socket, sparks flying off of my shoes
Hands get to shakin', chances I'm takin', heart is beating true
Pistol in my pocket, voices saying stop it, but I'm not hearing you
Mama raised a fighter, fists are getting tighter, red blood turns to blue

Can't hold me down, thrashing the ground, fire in my belly, just can't hold me down
Can't hold me down, deafening sound, better be ready, just can't hold me down, just can't hold me down

Rolling like a boulder, chip on my shoulder, blowing like a hurricane
Immigrant blood, swollen like a flood, coursing through my veins
Grittin' my teeth, planting a seed, hatching up a plan
Circuit's rewired, can't be getting tired, time to be a man
