“Look where I am and then look where I’ve been
Tell me that I ain’t destined to win
Never give power to none of you cowards

Promise you you are no match for my mind
Took all my doubt, whipped it into submission
And forced my ambition to step into line”

Turn it around, even when you feel you dumbing it down…
