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
I've seen your hidden vanity behind
Trust no promises ask the Native
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
No one listens like a Rape Victim
But no one answers, when we bitch
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.
