Step Off

Step back for your cruelty wreaks, as 
your shallow compliments.
All my life I've seen your kind hurt 
others to claim accomplishments.
Caring only for there own needs and 
their selfish dreams,
Manipulating peoples good 
intentions for your own scheme.
I wish I was unaware like the others 
to your deeds,
I guess it doesn't matter to you not 
like your pride and greed.
We step on grass like we step on 
No longer give respect as we pass 
the steeple.
I've seen your hidden vanity behind 
your eyes,
Trust no promises ask the Native 
Americans why.
The game is to hustle and claim all 
that you deserve.
We're all meant to be Kings, but 
someone must serve.
I'm better than you, this mind frame 
is powerful tool,
Spit on everything and deceive by 
using the Golden Rule.
Promise the world to any that'll get 
you what you want, never stop,
Care for no one and stay focused on 
the race to the top.
And make your own path 
Selfishness is the first class,
While you're walking on the 
sidewalk just look at the grass.
Evil begets evil, so the cycle 
Come on people, let's resolve our 
selfish issues.
No one listens like a Rape Victim 
screaming out!
But no one answers, when we bitch 
and shout!
The only time we really care is when 
we're on our knees.
Yet you won't change, cause you 
care not to hear our pleas.
Just step on everyone like grass and 
clean your feet,
I'll give you the other cheek but 
never in defeat.
