    Catz get in da way
    Used to bring me down so low
    I didn't want to live

    Listened to too many people's voices
    In my head they would play everyday
    Wasn't livin fa me
    Gave up on myself

    Kept making mistakez
    Desperate to survive

    Whateva makes you cry
    Whateva makes you deny
    Flip it!
    Flip it!
    Flip it!

    It'z your life
    Do what you got to do
    Don't let anybody speak for you
    Keep it real within your own mind

    Free yourself
    Your spirit
    From every lie

    Because he or she
    Will often tell you some crazy shyte
    To control you
    Never knowing your true worth and value
    You slip into depression
    Thinking you have no one to turn to

    Even if mama or poppa
    May have
    God bless the child

    Express your views
    Because in dis crazy life
    You are the only one
    To be down for you

    Friends may have let you down
    People who they said you could depend on
    Are never around

    Either or they're
    Backstabber's
    Who smile in your face
    But want to see you go down

    Flip It!
    Flip It!
    Flip It!

    Stand tall
    Stay proud
    I'm going keep reppin
    Foreva
    I'm going keep bein loud
    Feel me

    Whateva silly bunk
    They try to fill ya head up wit
    You betta keep trying
    Don't listen to opinions
    Because they tend to change

    Keep ya head up
    Don't let nothin bring you down...
