lyrics

[hook]:
Pulling teeth
It's like pulling teeth

On my grind like I'm Napalm Death, save your breath
I don't give a fuck what you say to me, pay respect
Headbanging while I bust a rhyme, break ya neck
Giving everything I fucking got when I play a set
I see too many cats barely break a sweat
Complaining in the ash as their careers are being laid to rest
If you don't put in work all you can do is blame yourself
I ain't got no other options, the game is set
Graduated college, not I'm nothing but a slave to debt
Gotta work this shitty 9 to 5 just to pay the rent
Defer another day, I don't make enough to make a dent
Keepin us in chains while they rob us, blatant theft
I must be crazy like I'm fuckin high, takin meth
But all my cards are on the table, make a bet
I'll rage against the propaganda tellin me to hate myself
So here it comes, the kick, brace yourself

I used to listen to Wu Tang for hours and rap along
I'm hitting my peak like this is Flowers For Algernon
Thinkin bout the future I get sour and babble on
Suicidal anecdotes I cower in sadder songs
The wave form digital, the message is analog
I'm sick of hearing shit that you could find in a catalogue
Talkin bout the chains, Gucci products they rattle off
Playing pretend, that's the shit that we had em on
Barely a Padowan, got the swag of a master
Showing your bravado like you're grabbing your blaster
Disguise on lock, there's no battling after
How's about we send this bullshit back to the pasture
Last name Snow cuz I act like a bastard
Got thick skin, but you had em in laughter
Sweating like a warrior, you're barely a caster
Cuttin this down we need to bury it faster

Yet another show, another seedy bar. Hoping I'll be killin it and reaching far
Giving everyone a little bit of my soul when I'm showing everybody my bleeding heart
Gotta make a better impact, wanna just connect. If you don't, why even start?
Harder than a motherfucking dragon, I'll be spitting these flames til it rips my teeth apart
I'll be helping everybody see the scars. Understudy, but I fucking know the part
Everybody scrambling to reach the stars. Out the gate I'll open hard
Better never slow at all, the ride is going fast, you'll be tossed out like an open car
Got a little damage, I'll be gathering the pieces on a day that I'll reflect my broken shards
This isn't a plea for insanity, sick of what's handed me, giving me shit
I'm sick of the commonplace apathy, bring on the anarchy, into the pit
So stuck on the bullshit, the vanity, no I can't stand to see living with it
Give me macguffin, it's only a phantom, we needed, we had to be rid of the shit
I... don't... have any sympathy, I don't give a fuck about your struggle or misery
Magic of the music as I'm tapping the rhythm, we gave another body the beat of the symphony,
... Fuck... the line that you're giving me. Stab another knife into the back cuz you're killin me
Thinking I'm a be out, but you'll never be rid of me, ... you'll never be rid of me
