Song Concept: A song of aggression in which the basic message is that while one may be kind at heart, that doesn't make them weak....


Bang loud
Head into the crowd
Better get ready when you hear the sound
Talk weak
Settle in the street
No amount of pain’s gonna stop this streak
Deep breath
Ready for your best
Bring the world on ‘till there’s no one left
Dead wrong
Present and strong
“Never back down” is gonna mark this song

Verse 1:
Damned as a man who was plagued by his heart
Strong from my pain
I was damned to fall apart
Doubted at the start
Bring no fear of claws
Or come to know effects of a fearful pause
Mr. Concrete Jaw
Put his face to the floor
Now he doesn’t want it with a beast this raw
Heavy hammers drawn into place
Clouds in a state where an angel awaits to embrace
Bulletproof smile, I got something for you
I got pain that’ll reign when it’s cuttin’ through you
I got rage in my soul
And it’s dying for you to not have a clue
Confused as I’m tearing through you
So on the shore never test the water
Lest he is ready and wet with slaughter
Blood on my skull and a soul in transit
Now you know we isn’t living in Kansas


Verse 2:
Never undermine or deny my presence of mind
To architect death and design and end the sentence in rhyme
Critics are quoted confessing that I’m ahead of my time
My intellect is defined by intervention divine
It’s all good until you’re staring at the end of a 9
Leaves will finish your clique
And quick witted punch lines
You’re getting your wig splitted for spitting them dumb lies
Niggas feeding off the bullshit like a bunch of dung flies
Big faces on the bills, I’ve done away with the ones
Bill Gates is cutting checks and allocating my funds
Notice the mental fabric
The flow pattern is diplomatic
Your rapping is tragic
That’s why you lacking demographic
It’s time to deliver
The devil’s redeeming your soul
You had your moment of fame
But it’s over now, the debt is owed
The glitter and gold is rusting away in the rain
Real music’s here to remain
Nine Leaves redeeming the game
