Lyrics

Verse 1:
Two roads lead to fame. They can light up or tarnish your name
You can talk a good game, while you look for someone else to blame
But at the end of the day

Pre-chorus:
If you say you're 10 feet tall
Tear down everyone to make 'em feel small
Then that might be your downfall
Tie your shoes to run
It's time to measure.....up

Chorus:
(Measure up)/(4 feet, 5 feet, 6 feet) Chin up, stand up straight
(Settle up)/(1 cent, 2 cent, 3 cent) When it's time to pay
(Own up)/(1 strike, 2 strike, 3 strike) If you make a mistake
(Back Up)/(1 lie, 2 lie, 3 lie) The things that you say
(Measure up) (Don't you come up short) You got to measure up
(Measure up) (Don't you come up short) You got to measure up
(Don't you come up short) You got to measure up

Verse 2:
Say you've been on a roll. What they don't know is it's money you stole
All the pressure is taking it's toll, and your fa├žade is gonna crumble
Cuz at the end of the day

Pre-chorus
Chorus

Bridge:
Your hype was the best, should be no contest
But you're a wolf who got dressed, and we're not impressed
