I've been patiently waiting, tying my stomach in knots
I've been lost in the moment, going to war with my thoughts
And if you're feeling the pressure, the pressure's all that I got
So if you think that you're ready, I'm here to tell you you're not
The time is right now, yeah, you're in over your head
I'm calling lights out, until it's over and dead
And I'll be damned if I ever let you get me again
Yeah, I will stop at nothing
'Cause I was made to rise above it

'Cause one of these days, one of these days, everyone will know
But for now I stand alone

I count my enemies like trophies
I wear my scars so they can show me, now
I've got nothing left to prove
So when I look at you, all I see are trophies, trophies
I'm not afraid
To put it all on the line like it runs in my veins
I will stop at nothing, 'cause I was made to rise above it
Yeah, I was made to rise above it
I will stop at nothing, 'cause I was made to

I don't want no handouts, know I earned it (Earned it)
Remember shows when nobody came
Well that pissed me off, I stayed workin' (Workin')
Locked inside of in my room
Losin' some sleep writin' verses
They told me I'm nothin', I heard 'em
They want me to fall off, I'm laughin', got records like nothin'
I feel like a surgeon
Y'all went out on the weekend, I make hits while you drinkin'
Turn a dream to a lifestyle, six figures ain't even peak yet
They hate me, they want me to die
Came up from nothin', the numbers don't lie
You cannot stop me, so don't even try
I rise above it, owe this all to God, yeah

'Cause one of these days, one of these days, everyone will know
But for now I stand alone

I count my enemies like trophies
I wear my scars so they can show me, now
I've got nothing left to prove
So when I look at you, all I see are trophies, trophies
I'm not afraid
To put it all on the line like it runs in my veins
I will stop at nothing, 'cause I was made to rise above it
Yeah, I was made to rise above it
I will stop at nothing, 'cause I was made to rise above it
