So you tried to believe in the castles made of sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach from my hand

I sacrificed my life to give you my life to speakers
I tried to do good even though I've been crossed like Jesus
God knows I got a good heart but my blood's been with demons
I'm fighting myself, believe me, I'm far from ignorant
Far from greedy if you knew what I come from
Knew what I've been through, you think there shoulda
Been another outcome just like most kids
A father, I did it without one
Come from the city where they X you like Malcom
Then you wonder how come I can move in the room
Full of woos, so sweet, so smooth
Thank you mom for making me a man
Let 'em mother fucker knock down my castle in the sand

So you tried to believe in the castles made of sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach from my hand

Reach for my hand

I live my whole life with the world on my shoulders
So I couldn't care less what this music game throws us
I see them looking in front of ? , but they won't find it
I come from struggle, I am a fighter, must you be reminded
My mother's past has a trap, has a blinded
But I took her past, I took her pain
I made it strength, I fought the game,
Do or die, Pitbull's the name
Now all I see is the future, mom, I love you, I salute you
Then no matter what happens jusst you're the reason I am rappin'


Look I'm from the home where the spit is the wind is the big apple
Came down to south beach to build a new castle
Every day I'm hustling and every day you hassle
Doing what you can and I'm doing what I have to
Throw me in the jungle and I'll show you I'm a winner
I'm coming out with dinner and wearing a chinchilla
I did it for my town to show 'em the big picture
Kid hit the switch, I promise to never switch up
This is for my brother took three and went to jail
I'm sending all my pictures through the mail
He hit me with a letter, I know you'll never fail
So put me on the beach with a bucket and a pail

So you tried to believe in the castles made of sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach from my hand

Reach for my hand
