When I was young
My daddy placed me on his knee, said
'Son, in this life nothing ever comes for free
In strife or wealth, you always gotta be an honest man
And trust yourself and nothing else and no one else'
The years passed, as they elapsed (yeah)
I travelled far and wide
From the greatest cities to the countryside
And through it all, I still heard his words
Just guiding me, inspiring me (yeah, yeah, yeah)

I built up my name (yeah, yeah)
I built up my pride (yeah)
I found the wealth and fame
I had always been denied
(Something like this)

Hold up, sip my cup
Go back to a land that any man can
Have it all in the palm of the hand
I'm that half back comin' through
I shine, yo, spic 'n' span
My days were fine when I had a plan but
Somehow at the drop of a dime (huh?)
I came to a land, had the skin of mine (yo)

I'm the kind that's color blind,
But why someone tellin' me deep inside
'N-gga open your little bitty eyes', right
I realize till now I cry
Who's that, who's pulling me back
Attack someone else
Yo, I'm stuck in a a shack
Traffic jam, that ghost snatching Pac Man
Traffic jam, shots out to all man, man

I built up my name (woo, woo, woo)
I built up my pride (ha ha ha ha ha)
I found the wealth and fame yeah
I had always been denied
Ooh

I was the man of the hour
The one with the power
Too sweet to be sour
The women love, and the men admire
Desire, for power, was the method to my madness
But badness was slowly but surely taking over me

Now I got my head up high
Like Mike said, full of pride
Don't be shy, 'ey dog, gonna ride cloud nine
Madness ain't taking over
..lean against my shoulder
What's mine is mine, alright
I see the sign I'll be there in time
I see the sign I'll be there in time

I built up my name (what's my name?)
I built up my pride (yo)
I found the wealth and fame (yeah)
I had always been denied (yeah yeah yeah)

(Life became a con)
Now it's all gone, time has worn away my shine
(Life became a blur)
My robes are all torn, I've got worries on my mind
(I somehow lost the plot)
Now it's all gone, time has worn away my shine
(Like a jaded emperor)
My robes are all torn, I've got worries on my mind

(Now it's all gone)
Now it's all gone, time has worn away my shine
(Time has worn away my shine)
My robes are all torn, I've got worries on my mind
(My robes are all torn)
Now it's all gone, time has worn away my shine
(I've got worries on my mind)
My robes are all torn, I've got worries on my mind
