Verse 1
After all that I’ve been through
From that moment that’s when I knew
Had all these eyes on me (me)
Felt the pressure that’s pushing down
Like a king that wears a crown
Your trying to break me (me)
(Your trying to break)
Break me
Chorus
I’m a man that’s under scrutiny
That can never be broken
Break me down
Coz I’m a man who’s under scrutiny
And when this is over
I’ll take you down
Verse
You try and call my bluff
Am I a real man am I tough
Your game is sticks and stone (stones)
Sharpened knives to spoil their lives
Dodge bullets just to survive
It's time to crash and burn (burn)
(It’s time to crash)
Crash and burn
Chorus
I’m a man that’s under scrutiny
That can never be broken
Break me down
Coz I’m a man who’s under scrutiny
And when this is over
I’ll take you down
(Middle 8 – eyes on me looking down eyes on me all over town)
My soul wont break
How much more can I take
You don’t hear what I say
I’m not gonna run away
You can call me out
Don’t put me down
You can call me out
All over town
Eyes on me looking down eyes on me all over town
Chorus
I’m a man that’s under scrutiny
That can never be broken
Break me down
Coz I’m a man who’s under scrutiny
And when this is over
I’ll take you down
I’m a man that’s under scrutiny
That can never be broken
Break me down
Coz I’m a man who’s under scrutiny
And when this is over
I’ll take you down
