Just One Step.

I step out on to this court

With my head high and my chest out

Because I'm better than you

I can tell just by the way you walk

You can’t guard me

Because I'm better than you

I know you’re scared

I can feel your bones trembling in your body

And that's because I’m better than you

You may think I'm cocky

I just know not a single person can stop me

But as soon as I rise, the fall is faster than a rocket

I hurt myself

Now earth bound, living with peasants

I now learned the hard way

What it feels to be down looking up to the heavens
