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

The noose gets tighter around
my throat
But I ainÒ‘t at the end of my rope Ò‘cause
I wonÒ‘t be the one left behind
CanÒ‘t be king of the world
If youÒ‘re slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
CanÒ‘t be king of the world
If youÒ‘re slave to the grind

Get it?

A routine injection, a lethal dose
But my day in the sun ainÒ‘t even close
ThereÒ‘s no need to waste
your prayers on me
You better mark my words
Ò‘cause IÒ‘m history
Yes indeed

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

I wonÒ‘t be the one left behind
You canÒ‘t be king of the world
If youÒ‘re slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
CanÒ‘t be king of the world
If youÒ‘re slave to the grind

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

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

I wonÒ‘t be the one left behind

You canÒ‘t be king of the world
If youÒ‘re slave to the grind
Tear down the rat racial slime
You canÒ‘t be king of the world
If youÒ‘re slave to the grind

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