lyrics

[v1: Wrythm]
Been around the block, not a little bit, but a lot
Fiddled with legitimate thoughts, of being that boss
That I want to, being that man I ought to, STOP
Being that man that you thought you,
coulda been, shoulda been, would've been, NAH
Focus on now not the never, and the top
Aim low, the shame flows,
You better not wonder why your shit'll never pop
Bend don't break, and don't freak out
When you get looked at crazy
for the first time you when speak out
Cuz just maybe, you gotta be crazy to get seeked out
Gotta be insane sometimes to ever know what sane is like
Tell 'em your name or remain nameless
Learn what a taste of fame is like
Sacrifice and compromise, but never the integrity of your mind
A star in the light is weak if your identity you can't find
Have the capacity for strategy, and a single drop of vanity
Life will turn into catastrophe if you take it light and passively

[chorus: Jimi Woodul]
When I was a rock and roller
I was a metal man, I did not bend
When I was a rock and roller
I was a metal man, I did not bend

[v2: Wrythm]
I can remember being as hard as bars that's reinforced by concrete
Steel inside my skeleton, quick to crush you if you taunt me
A relative to anger, we come from the same bloodlines
We didn't lose touch either, I still visit my family sometimes
But lately we've become more distant,
and that's better for the both of us, and though I miss 'em
I still feel close to 'em, cuz when I'm down I know he'll listen
Tell me to buck the fuck up, you're grown now
You can't win 'em all, and so I slowed down
I'm traveling on a more peaceful road now
Living by the code that even if I know, just tone down
Calmly express my stances, reinforce my views
Knowing that if I argue with ignorance, dawg we both lose
And I'm not tryna catch no more L's right now,
Ask me 6 years ago if I wanna fight right now
I'm 26, I'm worrying about this shit called life right now
Put down that fraudulant ass front and get your life turned 'round

[chorus]

[Bridge: Jimi Woodul]
Praying to the Gods of metal, save me
When I was a rock and roller baby
Praying to the Gods of metal, save me
When I was a rock and roller baby
Praying to the Gods of metal, save me
When I was a rock and roller baby

[chorus]
