    i believed in money and the american lie
    then lost everything and couldn't get by
    climbed the bridge - attempt at suicide
    believing the "HYPE" and hypnotized
    mental state compromised

    in a tight squeeze
    hard to conceive
    hard to believe
    in such need

    ready to give up but know i can't
    a victim of circumstance
    wasn't in the plans
    chance
    rave and rants
    i wear the pants

    and they're gettin' tighter
    would it be easier if i were "LIGHTER"
    what difference does it make?
    i am fighter
    reach out and bite ya

    it aint't the best, brighter or biggest
    its survival of the fittest
    while trying to stay legit
    now that's an accomplishment

    in the streets i run thru
    every day is a struggle
    could never be comfortable
    but never again will i buckle
    fall and stumble

    a message to the masses
    to the facist
    to the underclasses

    too black too strong
    ahh come on
    you know the rest
    i don't know anymore
    what's right what's WRONG
    but i stand STRONG

    like a So'ja
    'TIL IT'S OVER

    Despite the many chains, pitfalls, and stumbling blocks, the last two lines pretty much some it all up:
    like a So'ja
    'TIL IT'S OVER
    Keep on forging ahead.
