Not Afraid Lyrics
[Intro]
Yeah!
It's been a ride...
I guess I had to... go to that place... (that place!) to get to this one!
Now some of you... (some of you!) might still be in that place! (be in that place!)
If you're tryna get out... (tryna get out!)
Just follow me! (follow me!)
I'll get you there!

[Chorus: Intro in the background]
I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid!) to take a stand (to take a stand!)
Everybody (everybody!) come take my hand! (come take my hand!)
We'll walk this road together - through the storm!
Whatever weather - cold or warm!
Just let you know that - you're not alone!
Hola if you feel that you've been down the same road!

[Verse 1:]
You can try and read my lyrics off of this paper before I lay 'em
But you won't take this thing out these words before I say 'em!
Cause ain't no way I'm let you stop me from causing mayhem
When I say 'em or do something I do it! - I don't give a damn what you think!
I'm doing this for me! - so f*ck the world feed it beans,
It's gassed up, if a thing's stopping me!
I'm a be what I set out to be! Without a doubt undoubtedly
And all those who look down on me I'm tearing down your balcony!
No "if", "ands" or "buts", just don't try to ask him why or how can he
From +Infinite+ down to the last +Relapse+ album he's still shit
An' whether he's on salary, paid hourly
Until he bows out or he shit's his bowels out of him!
Whichever comes first for better or worse
He's married to the game! - Like a f*ck you for Christmas!
His gift is a curse!
Forget the Earth, he's got the urge to pull his dick from the dirt. - And f*ck the whole universe!

[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]
Okay! Quit playin' with the scissors and shit! - And cut the crap
I shouldn't have to rhyme these words in the rhythm for you to know it's a rap!
You said you was king! - You lied through your teeth
For that f*ck your feelings - instead of getting crowned you're getting capped!
And to the fans - I'll never let you down again, I'm back!
I promise to never go back on that promise.
In fact let's be honest, that last +Relapse+ CD was: "Ehhhh! "
"Perhaps I ran them accents into the ground... "
Relax, I ain't going back to that now! (now!)
All I'm tryna say is get back! Click-clack, BLAOW! [gun cocks & shot]
Cause I ain't playin' around! - There's a game called circle an'
I don't know how - I'm way too up to back down! (down!)
But I think I'm still tryna figure this crap out
Thought I had it mapped out but I guess I didn't this f*cking black cloud's
Still follow's - me around but it's time to exercise
These demons, these motherf*ckers are doing jumping jacks now!

[Chorus]

[Bridge:]
And I just can't keep living this way
Sooo starting today! - I'm breaking outta this caaaaaaaage!
I'm standing up, I'm a face my demons!
I'm manning up, I'm a hold my ground!
I've had enough, now I'm so fed up
Time to put my life back together right now! [echoes]

[Verse 3:]
It was my decision to get clean! - I did it for me
Admittedly - I probably did it subliminally - FOR YOU!
So I could come back a brand new me, you helped see me through!
And don't even realise what you did! - Believe me you!
I been through the ringer; but they can do little to the middle finger.
I think I got a tear in my eye! - I feel like the king of
My world! - Haters can make like bees with no stingers
And drop dead no more beef flingers!
No more drama from now on, I promise
To focus soley on handling my responsibility's as a father!
So I solemnly swear to always treat this roof like my daughters and raise it!
You couldn't lift a single shingle on it!
Cause the way I feel - I'm strong enough to go to the club
Or the corner pub and lift the whole liquor counter up!
Cause I'm raising the bar! - I shoot for the moon
But I'm too busy gazing at stars! - I feel amazing and...

[Chorus:]
I'm not afraid (I'm not afraid!) to take a stand (to take a stand!)
Everybody (everybody!) come take my hand! (come take my hand!)
We'll walk this road together - through the storm!
Whatever weather - cold or warm!
Just let you know that - you're not alone!
Hola if you feel that you've been down the same road! [echoes] [beat stops]
