Spoken: You see it's not the blood you spill that gets you what you want. It's the blood you share, your family, your friendships, your community. These are the most valuable things a man could have.

What makes you think everything is this world
That you have can be taken away?
In a world this way, it's kill or be killed.
I live each day like it might be my last.
In this lifetime few things are worth fighting for.
My Blood. Your Honor.
Everyone has a destiny.

I'll choose my own.
I will not be a victim
I'll choose my own.
My cries won't go unheard
I'll choose my own.
I got to fight for myself.
I'll choose my own.
And what I hold so true.
Destiny.

I'll choose my own destiny and I'll never let anyone take away what I hold so true.
I won't live in denial. And I won't turn the other cheek.
I must remain convicted and never accept this suffering.
I've learned from my mistakes and I've made a promise to myself.
I won't live in the past
I won't live in the past

I've been affected by your lies and I've let then hold me back.
I wasn't thinking for myself.
I wasn't living for myself.

I will not be a victim
I'll choose my own.
My cries won't go unheard
I'll choose my own.
I got to fight for myself.
I'll choose my own.
And what I hold so true.
Destiny.

What I have in my heart
What I have in my heart I'll take to my grave
I'll take to my grave
