lyrics

Every time I give an inch they
Every time I give an inch they
Every time I give an inch they
Every time I give an inch they
Fall back let me win make it happen
I want to give when I can won't be taken for granted
Fall back let me win make it happen
Want to give when I can won't be taken for granted

When I was young I used to mix every sauce together
It looked gross and we'd joke and we'd laugh about it
Told my mama it was magic potion
Concocted by the one that's chosen
It wasn’t much just a joy to be me
My own science creates good chemistry
I'm the one they want to marinate with
We trying to win always stay creative

Every time I give an inch they
Every time I give an inch they
Every time I give an inch they
Every time I give an inch they
Fall back let me win make it happen
I want to give when I can won't be taken for granted
Fall back let me win make it happen
Want to give when I can won't be taken for granted

Didn't have much garage beats heavy drums $5 Mic voice to speak with
Stayed in cuz I knew how the streets went
rat ta tat and your body's leaking
Wrote a verse like this I think it went
Wherever I go with me the grief went
That was then I since debriefed it happiness is the only thing I'm seeking
Every time I give an inch they
Take my strength and attack my weakness
Every time I give an inch they
Take my ideas and expose my secrets
Every time I give an inch they
Want to stick like some human sized leeches
Every time I give an inch they
Take my seat and never plan on leaving

Went to college 5 years and I couldn't focus indoctrination by profess I wrote in notebooks
When judged by the faces overran campus
I learned from experience textbook fragments
Everything is a risk you gotta take chances
Mistaken as a fool I never take 4 granted
Keep bank with stashes or keep your cake inside the mattress.

Every time I give an inch they
Every time I give an inch they
Every time I give an inch they
Every time I give an inch they
Fall back let me win make it happen
I want to give when I can won't be taken for granted
Fall back let me win make it happen
Want to give when I can won't be taken for granted
