Before I fade to black, in a shaded shack
In a box with handles and my family in back
I will have achieved my life in leaves of paper
That kept me safer than hangin' with thieves

I've been in The Big House, but not for long
But long enough to know it's hard to make songs
I played my cards and kept movin' along
Hooked up with Mad Child an' righted my wrongs

You don't continue our circles, we generate light
So 365 days I study and write
I bloody the mic and will continue to learn
From the best in the world, until the night I burn

I fought for my turn, you can check my gloves
We both have ink pads covered with blood and scabs
I love what I have, but I will progress
And I do everyday when I take my first step

It's all about breath, when it's done I'm gone
And death is a pawn in a game on a board of which I'm on
I've had a sword in my palm from the very first tracks
They were cut, mastered and released under Battleaxe

It's nice to know that I've been a part of something reversible
Camouflage the description

[Chorus]
Yo, it's funny how time flies
Life is lows and highs and that's no surprise
Come along for the ride, can you handle the drive?
Act on it, 'cause life can flash before your eyes
Time flies, lows and highs and that's no surprise
Come along for the ride, can you handle the drive?
Act on it, 'cause life can flash before your eyes

Before I'm laid to rest, I'm a do my best
'Cause the biggest death threat is too many regrets
An' I ain't goin' out like "I wonder what would have happened
If I'd never given up an' kept on rappin'?"

Been so many years of blood, sweat an' tears
Fears to overcome so Imma give it my all
An' when it's last call, at least there'll be no question
An' if I fall, I know it just wasn't my destiny

Maybe it's not meant to be, but eventually
I guarantee I'll satisfy myself mentally
I'm sick and tired of the position acquired
I appreciate it, but I've seen visions in fire

A premonition, spiritually awakened
With doses of moments of magic to take in
We'll keep it movin' an' go at it whole-hearted
Mad Child works the hardest to finish what I've started

[Chorus]

Yo, it's funny how time flies
Life is lows and highs and that's no surprise
Come along for the ride, can you handle the drive?
Act on it, 'cause life can flash before your eyes
Time flies, lows and highs and that's no surprise
Come along for the ride, can you handle the drive?
Act on it, 'cause life can flash before your eyes

[Mad Child] There's no time to waste

[Prevail] We move with grace

[Mad Child] One life to embrace

[Prevail] Yo, it feels like a race

[Mad Child & Prevail] Nameless faces in a dangerous place

[Prevail] The strange and great

[Mad Child] Rearrange your taste

[Mad Child & Prevail] From almost nothin' to almost somethin'

[Prevail] From no one listenin'

[Mad Child] To everybody jumpin'

[Mad Child & Prevail]

Kings on the mic, we got kings on production
Fuck fallin' off this is just an introduction

[Chorus]

Yo, it's funny how time flies
Life is lows and highs and that's no surprise
Come along for the ride, can you handle the drive?
Act on it, 'cause life can flash before your eyes
Time flies, lows and highs and that's no surprise
Come along for the ride, can you handle the drive?
Act on it, 'cause life can flash before your eyes
