The Rage

I got the rage of a thousand men
I’m here, so let the fight begin
We’ve swung so many times and had many fights
Right now, we gotta make a choice that’s right
I gotta feed and tame
The beast inside me wants to reign
But the heart in me says no to change
Because if I let the beast go, I won’t be the same
I’ll change forever, I’ll never live it down
I won’t survive the winter weather, I’ll never wear my crown
Of thorns like him, bear a cross like him
Never pay the cost to be just like him
My rage wouldn’t let anyone near with a whip
Because it wouldn’t let me contain my fist and lips
And curse the evil away with a sharpen tongue
Is just as dangerous as walking away from a desperate bum

I got rage to fight, I got rage to control
I got a life to live, and the rage has a role
Right now that role is to let you know what I know
That sometimes some shit has to be let go
My rage caused me to pick up so many weapons
And quickly I saw my future of being a felon
Now I walk away and cast the spell like a sage
Because you see a dark cloud known as the rage

I got the rage of a thousand men
I’m here, so let the fight begin
The story of my rage goes back for years
And each time it gets dug into brings the tears
Leave the shit in the past
It’s without it that I live with class
And find new things to keep my life smiling
It’s not me letting my past stay idling
I wrote blogs, spit lyrics, even written poetry
To know what my life was and what I know it can be
I know that each time I set the standard
Brings a question whether or not it can be handled
It can be handled because the past is where it is
Full of regret and misery, it is what it is
It is what it is
Leave it alone, because all it does is bring tears

I got rage to fight, I got rage to control
I got a life to live, and the rage has a role
Right now that role is to let you know what I know
That sometimes some shit has to be let go
My rage caused me to pick up so many weapons
And quickly I saw my future of being a felon
Now I walk away and cast the spell like a sage
Because you see a dark cloud known as the rage

I got the rage of a thousand men
I’m here, so let the fight begin
I got the rage of a thousand men
I’m here, so let the fight begin
I got the rage of a thousand men
I’m here, so let the fight begin
I got the rage of a thousand men
I’m here, so let the fight begin

I got rage to fight, I got rage to control
I got a life to live, and the rage has a role
Right now that role is to let you know what I know
That sometimes some shit has to be let go
My rage caused me to pick up so many weapons
And quickly I saw my future of being a felon
Now I walk away and cast the spell like a sage
Because you see a dark cloud known as the rage
