Track Name: Fighter
I was down, but I'm not out
I can't be heard, so it's time to shout
You can try to hold me back
But you'd best get ready for an attack
I won't back down,
Because I'm a fighter.
Nothing's gonna bring me down
I'm a fighter.

I was in the dirt
But it can't hurt
Any worse than my pride
Inside reeling
Feeling like a part of me died
They say when you're on the ground
You've got nowhere to go but up
I'm stallin, and fallin,
Had the lift of a semi truck

But I hit as hard as a truck fully loaded
I exploded and brought the hurt
I guess that's why they call me Mac
Now they're in the dirt and I'm back
And I won't be slowin' down this attack
Quick jabs, I'm slammin' anyone
Who flaps their gums

Y'all got no idea where I'm from
Six inches from six feet underground
I was defying death daily
Like a trick candle I will never go out
The fire keeps burning
Maybe that's what it's all about

No matter how hard you fall
You gotta be your own salvation
Cuz no one will help you
No one will end that stagnation,
Migration is the only way to change your location
Adaptation to the situation, aspirations for more
It leads to retaliation
Frustration just gives you concentration for
Future confrontations
Now I'm the acclimation
Of all the pain,
Scars remain, but the horizon is bright
So I'mma never quit the fight

I was down, but I'm not out
I can't be heard, so it's time to shout
You can try to hold me back
But you'd best get ready for an attack
I won't back down,
Because I'm a fighter.
Nothing's gonna bring me down
I'm a fighter.

I took my punches and bruises
And y'all can't stand me
'Cuz I'm refusing to bow out,
Even when I'm losing, I'm choosing
to keep abusing my enemies
Every hater, I'm schoolin'
Bring em to their knees
They livin' a fantasy if they think
They're stopping me from ruling the ring
I'll be king until the day that I die
Now where did everybody go
Who thought I couldn't get by?
It ain't the end of the show
Till the K.O.
Oh! Now you wanna

Be in my corner? Now your actin' like my buddy?
Well where the hell were you when I was on the ground
You thought it was funny.
So honey, forgive me for goin on
Like that battery bunny, but now I'm
Energized to never stop running

Yeah, you fueled me up for a fight that I could never have won
So I guess I'd be remiss if I didn't thank you in the long run
That's just how it goes, when your foes become the ones who keep you going on
I'll never stop getting stronger, the longer I live, the more it burns bright
The fire inside blazes on, the world turns on us all
But I promise to stand tall
And fight.

I was down, but I'm not out
I can't be heard, so it's time to shout
You can try to hold me back
But you'd best get ready for an attack
I won't back down,
Because I'm a fighter.
Nothing's gonna bring me down
I'm a fighter.

Even if everybody is against you...
Even if nobody believes in you...
Even if they say that you're too little to go on...
You just show them: You are a fighter.
You will prove them wrong.
Just remember the lyrics to this song -- you will overcome.
