Empire - Asking Alexandria feat Bingx

Yeah, and they tell me life is short
In the blink of an eye we come and die
Keep it in mind that life is war
Stay grounded, fly and soar
Always know what you fighting for
Aging fast, gotta pave a path
And go figure out what my life is for

Quick-witted, and everyday I gotta switch lanes
F_ck race, no pigment, I got thick skin, making big waves
Positive being positive is my legacy
Pray for me or make way for me
Because I'm setting out to go change the Earth and I just may
My life is was I call it
And I call it successful
Now everybody wanna eyeball it
Like "How the f_ck he do that though?"
Take pride in your every action
Everyday of my life is work
And they tell me that time is money
But only I know what that time is worth

Even if the sky was falling down
Down down down
Even if the sky was falling, well I'm not falling down
I stand tall through it all, I've risked too much
To just give up now I'm pushing on through
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sure as the tide rolls in at night
I'll still be here at the end of days screaming at the sky
Let the fire consume and cleanse what's before me
Behold, I'll build my empire before the ashes hit the ground

Life inside a piece of paper, live it through my pen and pad
Lead inside my pencil like the hammer on my pistol back
There ain't no hitting back, life it ain't no tennis match
All over the net but that ain't where I do business at
Face to face with adversity and intimidation
This is real, this is raw, ain't no imitation
No limitations ain't a ceiling in sight
There ain't no rules or regulations either yield or you fight
Just take a look at where I been that's some appealing advice
Cause you can build until it falls or keep it real and you rise

Even if the sky was falling down
Down down down
Even if the sky was falling, well I'm not falling down
I stand tall through it all, I've risked too much
To just give up now I'm pushing on through
Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Sure as the tide rolls in at night
I'll still be here at the end of days screaming at the sky
Let the fire consume and cleanse what's before me
Behold, I'll build my empire before the ashes hit the ground

Sure as the tide rolls in at night
I'll still be here at the end of days screaming at the sky
Let the fires consume and cleanse what's before me
Behold, I'll build my empire before the ashes hit the ground

Sure as the tide rolls in at night
I'll still be here at the end of days screaming at the sky
Let the fire consume and cleanse what's before me
Behold, I'll build my empire before the ashes hit the ground
