I’m throwing down, hoping it all falls in place
I’m just carving out my niche in the marketplace
I’m ‘bout to take it all, don’t stall, make haste
I’m just carving out my niche in the marketplace
So what I’m selling, I hope that you’re buying
I’m talking ‘bout the message that I be supplying
The record books will be all erased
when I carve out my niche in the marketplace

They say this is a phase and it will pass
but I feel myself dying like the middle class
Wimps at the NRA all pistol-whipped
and politicians make up fake sh*t
like the fiscal cliff
so they job feel a little more important
Act hard just a little bit impotent
but our cut is a itty-bitty quotient
Fiddlesticks to the companies controlling
So here’s a settlement from the benevolent
with a gag order to never mention it
How I’m controlling the entire nation
with insider trading, to your irritation
Like libations- got your head spinning
Imma tell your story, Imma set it in
perpetual depression
We need some aggression
to really strike fear
in these coward congressmen

Time ain’t money, man, time is life
and you’ll never get it back
once you pass through the night
So don’t chase a check, chase a dream
Don’t create competition, make a team
Cuz on the face it seems you be following trends
But it’s that copycat crap you be wallowing in
But if you can discover your original voice
When the people hear you
you don’t give ‘em a choice
Cuz when you share your perspective
it’s very effective
Bares a resemblance to a collective
Go around blowing minds like a revolver
and when they believe
they will speak with their dollars
Make a career out of being sincere
If there’s one takeaway
I hope that much is clear
So what’s there to fear but the unknown
You belong out here, so come home
