Here we go…

Life is hard, there ain't no easy when nothing goes your way
Pick up scars in an ugly world, you got to learn from your old mistakes
Dumb kid makes a point with a switch-blade, shows he's a man today
But tomorrow comes and he's no-one, and there's no-one else to blame

Mother cries- Judge and Jury send
Three to five- years that he's got to spend
Trapped inside- so's that he can pretend he's
Rectified- the only son

The past is dead, better to let it lie and get on with your life
But revenge is a powerful natural instinct to deny
Out in three, he was guilty, but he can't see he's not owed any time
And environment sets him in cement, twenty-one but he's down for life

Eyes run dry- judge and jury send
Wasted time- years that he's got to spend
Living lies- so's that he can pretend he
Sees the lines- the only son

It's time to set the record straight, be the renegade
Tie the wires, set the fuse and light the fires
Lone dum-dum lies asleep in the chamber now
But any minute we let the motherfucker out
Out on the loose, going to get juiced, going to reduce
Anybody not with this groove to mousse
Don't never take no time to grip the blade tight
And feel the anger
Rise, rise- one of one the only son come
Rise, rise- one of one the only son rise

It's time to set the record straight, and intimidate
All the fools breaking rules all around the place
You're convinced it's a thing that you cannot change
Sit back, relax, and embrace your fate
This is something I'll never understand
Not a victim, you're the problem man
Got no time for the policies I despise
So drop the smoke-screen and reveal the
Lies, lies- one of one the only son come
Lies, lies- one of one the only son lie
