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

The noose gets tighter around
my throat
But I ainґt at the end of my rope ґcause
I wonґt be the one left behind
Canґt be king of the world
If youґre slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Canґt be king of the world
If youґre slave to the grind

Get it?

A routine injection, a lethal dose
But my day in the sun ainґt even close
Thereґs no need to waste
your prayers on me
You better mark my words
ґcause Iґm history
Yes indeed

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

I wonґt be the one left behind
You canґt be king of the world
If youґre slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
Canґt 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
Iґm sick of the jive
You talk verbal insecticide

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

I wonґt be the one left behind

You canґt be king of the world
If youґre slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
You canґt be king of the world
If youґre slave to the grind

I said slave to the grind
Slave to the grind
Slave to the grind
