Here are the lyrics to the song.

[Hook: Liz Rodrigues]
This is survival of the fittest
This is do or die
This is the winner takes it all
So take it all

[Verse 1]
Wasn’t ready to being a millionaire, I was ill-prepared
I was prepared to be ill though, the skill was there
From the beginning, it wasn’t ’bout the ends
It was ’bout busting raps and standing for something, f*** an acronym
Cut the f****** act like you’re happy, I’m f******g back again
With another anthem, why stop when it doesn’t have to end?
It ain’t over ’til I say it’s over – enough when I say enough
Throw me to them wolves and close the gate up
I’m afraid of what’ll happen to them wolves
When the thought of being thrown into an alligator pit, I salivated it
Weight is up, hands up like it’s 12 noon, nah, homie
Hold them b****** straighter up,
up wave ‘em ’til you dislocate a rotator cuff
Came up rough, came to ruffle feathers, nah, egos
I ain’t deflate enough, last chance to make this whole stadium erupt

[Hook]

[Verse 2]
I can see the finish line with each line that I finish
I’m so close to my goals I can almost pole vault over the goal post
And if I don’t got enough in the tank, maybe I can just siphon enough
To fill up this last can, man will I survive in this climate or what?
They said I was washed up, and got a blood bath
I’m not a rapper, I’m an adapter, I can adjust
Plus I can just walk up to a mic and just bust
So floor’s open if you’d like to discuss
Top 5 in this m********* and if I don’t make the cut
What, like I give a f***,
I’mma light this b**** up like I’m driving a truck
To the side of a pump, 0 to 60 hop in and gun it
Like G-Unit without the hyphen, I’m hyping ‘em up
And if there should ever come a time where my life’s in a rut
And I look like I might just give up, eh you might’ve mistook
Me for bowing out I ain’t taking a bow, I’m stabbing myself
With a f****** knife in the gut, while I’m wiping my butt!
Cause I just s****** on the mic, and like getting cut
I get excited at the sight of my blood, you’re in a fight with a nut
Cause I’mma fight ’til I die or win
Biting the dust it’ll just make me angrier, wait
Let me remind you of what got me this far, picture me quitting
Now draw a circle around it and put a line through it, slut
It’s survival of what?

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
So get your ideas, stack your ammo
But don’t come unless you come to battle,
I’m mad now jump in the saddle
This is it, it’s what you eat, sleep, piss and s***
Live, breathe, your whole existence just consists of this
Refuse to quit, fuse is lit, can’t diffuse the wick
I don’t do this music shit, I lose my s***
Ain’t got s*** to lose, it’s the moment of truth
It’s all I know how to do, as soon as I get thrown in the booth, I spit
But my respect is overdue, I’m showing you the flow no one do
Cause I don’t own no diploma for school, I quit!
So there’s nothing for me to fall back on, I know no other trades
So you’d better trade your f****** mics in for some tool-box-es
Cause you’ll never take my pride from me
It’ll have to be pried from me,
so pull out your pliers and your screwdri-vers
But I want you to doubt me, I don’t want you to buh-lieve
Cause this is something that I must use to suc-ceed
And if you don’t like me then f*** you!
Self es-teem must be f****** shooting through-the-roof cause trust me
My skin is too thick and bul-let proof to touch me
I can see why the f*** I disgust you
I must be a-llergic to failure cause everytime I come close to it
I just sneeze, I just go atchoo then achieve!

[Hook]
