Born to survive like father like gun
Built to out last where you came from
Nothin' ain't comes easy when nothin' is handed to you

Taught yourself how to turn the tides
Walk a shore before the water's rise
Even when you're down you're still coming through

Making diamonds out of dust
You shine before you turn to rust

Never by the book, always underestimated
It's hard to believe the life that you created
Self made

Learned from the will of the working man
Breaking hard ground for a piece of land
Up before the sun and down before the rising moon

Oh fought for the things that were never yours
Settle for less and hope for more
God and pouring rain never come too soon

Making diamonds out of dust
Who you are is who you trust

Never by the book, always underestimated
It's hard to believe the life that you created
The impossible endeavor, never would you trade
It's a legacy that you take to the grave
Self made, self made

Live and die by the chance we're taking
Money don't buy the life that we're making

Never by the book, always underestimated
It's hard to believe the life that you created
The impossible endeavor never would you trade
It's a legacy that you take to the grave
Self made, self made

Live and die by the chance we're taking
(Self made)Money don't buy the life that we're making
(Self made) Live and die by the chance we're taking
(Self made) Money don't buy the life that we're making
(Self made) Live and die by the chance we're taking
(Self made) Money don't buy the life that we're making
