Lyrics

Intro:
Theres a lot of people thats gonna put you down
there gonna make you wanna quit
but if this is what you love to do
than it's up to you to bust the wall down

Verse 1:
It starts out as a dream
climbing a mountain it seems
impossible, this industry could wipe out your esteem
cause all the negativity causes a thousand screams
it's kinda like i'm playin out of bounds without my team
stuck in the same scene
runnin from day dreams
can't make a buck unless you do something for mainstream
and when you feel your time is up and you finished
you strive a little harder with the intent to rupture the critics
and soon your talent will shine
they assume you're out of your mind
but your tank is getting fuller for every mile that you drive
you thinkin that the rest is fate
but when it don't work you fall into a depressive state and optimism drifts away
but never let your skills escape
because you'll walk around instilled with hate
all bottled till the feelings brake
only one to trust is you
so if this is who you are than make a change and stand up for what you love to do

Chorus:
This is what i'm born to do
and you can't tell me i cannot be
on top of the world they can't believe
that this is not just a fantasy

if i don't make it amma
bust the wall down
bust the wall down
bust the wall ill kick and punch the wall down (2X)

Verse 2:
I percieve the impossible
and see through the opticle
i'll defeat the improbable
stand on 2 feet on top of you
i'm the sun improving the storm, proving you wrong
this entertainment business will break you to see if your strong
if not they drop you with nothing left
i've tasted the seed of defeat
but inside me it blossomed into success
it's not about becoming rich
cause when you dream you gotta come to grips
and desperation is what you have for the love of this
nobody sees your struggle
nonetheless feel your pain
never witness the tears
never heard you complain
noone believed they would see you again
they was wrong when they percieved that you believed in an end
they broke the puzzle
you put the pieces back
because when you shine
they'll be too blind to see the facts
so the only one to trust is you
so if this is who you are than make a change and stand up for what you love to do

Chorus

Bridge:
You'll see
what you did to me
i can hardly breathe
but amma keep fightin for what i love to be (2X)
