You say you know me? Tell me who I am.

What do I like? Do I prefer a bottle or a can?

You say you’re not sure? But you said you knew me very well!

If you really knew me, would it be this hard to tell?

I try to stay simple, but complexity is key.

It always keeps me moving, and keeps me on my feet.

So if you don’t really know me, when you look at me what do you see?

Some have said I am a sellout, who will never amount to anything?

Some people have said I’m a crab, because whenever they see me I seem to be mad.

But what they don’t realize is that I’m searching for my kind.

Those boys who become Men with a King’s state of mind.

If you don’t know that state of mind then you’re in the wrong court.

For it is God’s glory where we all fall short.

So I stand on my platform and I bow to my knees.

For my God is the only man I choose to please!!

So let’s rise up Men of Power, leave the past behind!!

And move towards the future with a KING’S STATE OF MIND!!!
