Ain’t no good wishin’, for this ‘n’ that, gotta strike while the iron’s hot.
Take no pris’ners! Go with the flow, know how to use ‘n’ shake what you got.
Listen to their words, but watch their hands, stay out ‘n’ infront of the pack.
Break a few laws, break a few jaws, keep your guard up and watch your back.
Take it for free, it’s a golden rule!
‘cos nobody else is gonna take care of you:
Look out for number one!
Stay quick an’ nimble, easy ‘n’ free, from the traps an’ chains thrown at your mind.
Question their motive, query each “fact”, don’t surrender to their incessant lies.
Lonely an’ outcast, the price is high, to keep your faith an’ guard your crown.
Never say never, never say die, get up and fight after they’ve kicked you down.
At the end of a day, at the end of a life:
be one of the few to hold your head up high.

Sounds egoistic, but it’s a golden rule!
Take it from me, it’s a golden rule!
Lonely an’ outcast, the price you’ll pay, to keep your faith an’ guard your crown.
