It's so hard, when people knock you down
And tell you that you're never gonna get a shot at glory
But that's when you rise to the challenge
'Cause it's your time, your moment
And nothing can stop us now. 

Ptx, get up! 
What it is, what it does, what it is, what it isn’t
Looking for a better way to get up out of bed
Instead of getting on the internet and checking a new hit me

Fresh out thrift shop walking, little bit of humble, little bit of cautious
Somewhere between like Rocky and Cosby sweatergang nope nope y’all can’t copy
Yup. Bad, moonwalking, this here is our party
My posse's been on Broadway, ha, and we do it, our way. 
Grown music, I shed my skin and put my bones in to it
Everything I record and yep yep yep yep I’m on

Trust me. On my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T 'cause ha,
Slim chasing dreams since we were 14
With the four track
Buzzing halfway 'cross that city with the backpack,
Fat cat, crushing

Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we'll fight 'til it's over
So we put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us,
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we'll fight 'til it's over
So we put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Nah, can I kick it? Thank you. Yeah I'm so damn grateful
I grew up, really wanted gold fronts
But that’s what you get when Texas raised you
Y’all can’t stop me, go hard like I got an 808 in my heart beat
And I’m eating at the beat like you gave a little speech
To a great white shark on Shark Week

Raise those hands, this is our party
We came here to live life like nobody was watching
I got my city right behind me, if I fall, they got me
Learn from that failure, gain humility, we keep marching

Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we'll fight 'til it's over
So we put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Pa ra rap pa pa (Pa pa pa)
Pa paaa (Pa pa pa)
Papa paaa (Pa pa pa)
Pa paaa (And so we put our hands up)
(Let's Go! )

Na na nana na na na na
Oh
(And so we put our hands up)
Na na nana na na na na
Oh
(And so we put our hands up)
Na na nana na na na na
Oh
(And so we put our hands up)

Na na nana na na na na
Ooh woah

Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we'll fight 'til it's over
We put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us (Like the ceiling can’t hold us)
Like the ceiling can’t hold us

Here we go back, this is the moment
Tonight is the night, we'll fight 'til it's over
We put our hands up
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
Like the ceiling can’t hold us
