The Mind's Motivation now on WorldStarHipHop! http://www.worldstarhiphop.com/videos...


(verse 1)
now have you ever felt the pain when you're ignored by your fam?
middle child, young wild, but nobody understands
everyday just passing by, skipping school, changing routes
a bigger picture for the future but I'm tryin to paint it now
all your childhood friends, most of them graduated
I hate it, but you only live once so go and take it
hold the moment, go and own it, take control of your emotions
keep the faith, fix the pieces that were broken
remembering that day when you left out the door
single mom, 3 kids and still no child support?
I was raised independent but myself is always testin me
watching my back and the law's always stressin me
we gotta eat, survive the streets with intentions
the game is full of fakes, too many seek attention
God is my protection, my perfect is imperfection
yeah and it's just another lesson to be learned

it's an everyday struggle
in this life just trying to do me
i gotta work hard for what I want,
it all has a price it don't come free
you know in every situation
money is the mind's motivation
though I'm running out of time
I stay on the grind, hustlin' out on these streets
gotta stay on that grind
and we hustle like everyday
all day, everyday, all day

(verse 2)
I'm growin up you should be proud that I took the right route
the things that motivate my mind, never took a time out
you gotta understand, money is the mind's motivation
and it can save lives but it drives into hatred
it's pretty basic, it's there for the makin'
it's there so we save it but the greed overtakes it
its pretty crazy what we do to get paid
our mentality is pay me, nothings gettin in my way
I'm a superstar to your eyes and I still need a day job
I still need to get paid, when will it really pay off
ya pitiful, I should have stayed in school and I've been a fool
I rap cus it helps me through, you rap cus you think its cool
I'm trying to do me, without making a dance
without taking commands from all the fakes and demands
we all have our values, love is motivation
trust is what it makes it, believe and you'll create it
