    I'm so sick of this 9 to 5 grind
    Work all week long
    Still ain't made a dime
    Come home feelin like a modern day slave
    Even my ancestors were over worked and underpaid
    People wonder why I get blazed
    Can't even survive on a 9 to 5 alone, without some type of hustle on the side.
    I just want a job that pays my worth
    Guess it would be hard to find a job payin that much
    Is it imppossible for me to shine like the cats on t.v ?
    I know their climb to the top was'nt that easy.
    If the motherland hadn't been raped and defiled, I'd probably have diamonds right in my back yard.
    Sometimes I wonder if all my dreams will surpass
    Essential that I grind on, pray on move on and stay strong
    On a dash to get this cash
    I gotta live out my dreams.
    Never know if todays my last.
