lyrics

Verse 1:

i started off inside a world full of rhythm and beats
and it got to me that there might be a position for me

behind this music i could use it consume it and make a usage
rather than feeling broken, poor, completely useless

my own determination got me wanting it all
every pyramid i climb can't falter and fall

and i would give it out for free its a personal joy
but also an occupation, and its self employed

and if you value what you do you should give it a price
its not a greedy state of mind just a piece of advice

its only ninety nine sense not a lot in a track
if you change it to percents thats a lot in a rap

and the one cent left full of stress and nonsense
to separate myself from a basic content

cuhz if assimilated, really nothing is new
i shot down my pride, and my thoughts of value

Hook:

so what's your values what you put in a price
and what's your values what you put in a mic
what's your values when you taking a life
and what's your values how your living tonight(x2)

Verse 2:

some call it business earning interest a commission and dues
and if you love your nine to five then this saying is true

if you enjoy what you do every day and a night
then you'll never have to work another day in your life

and if you're good at what your doing never do it for free
its not a robbery its not selling out your beliefs

cuhz everybody gotta eat or a baby to feed
so its an honest waste of talent and the power recieved

like a superhero hiding in the guise of a man
and he's afraid, what he does, not according to plan

but, you can change a life and make some changes in yours
its not a war or a quest, a figure your fighting for

feelings of satisfaction, something achieved
like when you made it to the top and its easy to breathe

cuhz its not about the money, its a personal gain
but if it comes along, take the fortune and fame

Hook:

so what's your values what you put in a price
and what's your values what you put in a mic
what's your values of you living a dream
and what's your values of you making a means(x2)

Verse 3:

and this time is limited, death becomes imminent
everything you work, deserts, divide dividends

i don't wanna end, pretend its all evident
even in my death i'll still be unlimited

thinking out loud, for a closer approach
so all the people in the crowd know, what're my goals

i lay it out its in the open, like a scar from a knife
its ironic cuhz i hide behind a shadow of light

and the reason could be any or a many or few
its like an ante to a gamble that i'm waiting to lose

its like a different point of view, different color of chips
and its a reason why a player hates the aces he gets

cuhz the pot is never big everybody is fold
so do winners ever win when the tables are cold

but its either big or small, how they see the amount
in the end its not the money, but the player that counts

Hook:

so what's your values what you put in a price
and what's your values what you put in a mic
what's your values in a bad and a right
and what's your values in a shadow of light(x2)
