[Chorus:]
So you tried, to believe in the castle made of the sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach for my hand.

I sacrifice my life to give you my life through speakers,
Try to do good even though I've been crossed like Jesus,
God knows I got a good heart but my blood is filled with demons
I'm fighting myself, believe me,
I'm far from ignorant, Far from greedy
If you know where I come from, know what I've been through
You think there should have been another outcome
Just like most kids, a father I did it without one
Come from the city, X you like Malcolm, then you wonder how come
I can move in the room full of wolves so swift so smooth,
Thank you mom for making me a man
Let that mother f*cker knock me and my castle to the sand

[Chorus:]
So you tried to believe in the castle made of the sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach for my hand, reach for my hand.

Look
I'm from the home where the spit is the wind is the big apple
Came down the south beach to build a new castle
Every day I'm hustling and every day you hassle,
Doing what you can and I'm doing what I have to,
Throw me in the jungle and I'll show you I'm a winner,
I'm coming out with dinner wearing the chinchilla,
I did it for my town to show em the big picture,
Kid Hit the switch, I promise to never switch up,
This is for my brother two three who went to jail,
I'm send all the picture of my shows through the mail
He hit me with a letter, said: I knew you'd never fail,
So put me on a beach with a bucket and a pale

[Chorus:]
So you try to believe in the castle made of the sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach for my hand, reach for my hand

    Lo intentó a creer en el castillo hizo de la arena cuando cae al mar y sus pies no pueden encontrar tierra seca alcance de mi mano.

    He has been pushed to the corner of life but atlast he found a way out, which is 'get rich or die trying'. The person that gave him the life he is living now is just like a godmother to him. This godmother is so influential that her power is extend to anywhere he goes
