And they say, "Don't forget where you come from
Don't die holding on to your words 'Cause you know you got a whole world to change But understand who you got to change first"

And I was like "Fuck that", humility bust back
I remember the days with nothing but a bus pass
I was just a little shorty hoping that I could find a bum to buy a 40 for me
And have enough for a bud sack
Yeah, and I dance on that instrumental Unorthodox like Basquiat with the pencil Give me a microphone and a beat box I could vent to Music the only medium that I could find myself through
Recluse, sipping on some lean I would let loose Looking in the mirror, watching myself lose Cleaned up in '08, got a job making barely minimum wage
To get into that page
Hit the road with RL, performing in front of 8 people And that shit will check your ego About around that time I'm watching that EP go
From nothing to getting us booked around the country I know no limits, life can change in an instant Eight people turn into sold out shows in a minute And I'm watching my pops in the back row grinning With his glass up to my mom, toasting this Guinness 
And we on (we on)
Good music, it lies in the ambiance When we leave here
Will these words live on
Till then, we keep on making the songs 
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
Put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)

I remember that Freshman edition
Last year thinking to myself like
Yah, nah, I won't win it yet Probably won't get it, but I'm gonna give it everything Play my position The next 11 months I gave it all everything I had in me
Left blood, sweat, tears in every god damn city
No label, no deal, no publicist, indie Just music that connected and fans that rode with me Throw me a gold mine, and a co-sign While you're riding a couple dope rides Two women, both dimes Not gonna lie, that shit sounds so nice
But I got creative control and my souls mine
I wouldn't trade it, maybe I'm crazy I put on for my city Seattle that raised me
Rule four thousand eighty, it's really not changing Now a days make good music, the people are your label 
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
Put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)
So put 'em up, up up, up up (so high)

Oh my God, feels like a victory lap
Can I have that moment Can I talk my shit

And they say, "Don't forget where you come from
Don't die holding on to your words 'Cause you know you got a whole world to change But understand who you got to change first"

Put 'em up, up up, up up
Up, up up, up up
Up, up up, up up

Macklemore, Ryan Lewis 
Put 'em up, up up, up up
Up, up up, up up
Up, up up, up up (so high)
