You got me forced to crack my lids in two
I'm still stuck inside this rubber room
I gotta punch the clock that leads the blind
I'm just another gear in the assembly line oh no

The noose gets tighter around my throat
But I ain't at the end of my rope 'cause I wonґt be the one left behind
Can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind

A routine injection, a lethal dose
But my day in the sun ain't even close
Thereґs no need to waste your prayers on me
You better mark my words cause I'm history
Yes indeed

You might beg for mercy to get by
But I'd rather tear this thorn from my side

Cause I won't be the one left behind
You can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Can't be king of the world
If youґre slave to the grind

They swallowed thier daggers by turning their trick
They tore my intentions apart brick by brick
I'm sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

They swallowed thier daggers by turning their trick
They tore my intentions apart brick by brick
I'm sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

I won't be the one left behind

You can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
You can't be king of the world
If you're slave to the grind

Slave to the grind (x4)
