Hook:

It's a passion for success, that burns deep inside me
it pushes me, it drives me, it leads me, it guides me
it tirelessly inspires me, look inside my diary
listen close to me you can hear the fire in me
It's a passion for success, that burns deep inside me
it pushes me, it drives me, it leads me, it guides me
it tirelessly inspires me, look inside my diary
listen close to me you can hear the fire in me


Verse 1:

Soon as the beat drop in I subconsciously start rocking
I've reached a point where I can't even see myself stopping
failures not an option, it's like a sick obsession
expecting nothing less than the best performance in recording sessions
my gears are constantly turning yearning for more perfection
Most High, please continue to lead me in your direction
cause I can't do this by myself I need your help
I'm like a wounded healer touching people hoping that I'm felt
cause when I look back over my life, God forbid
I regret the things I didn't do more than the things I did
been rhyming since a kid so when you see in the press
know it took twenty years to make an overnight success
cause when I give my all I still feel I can go harder
I'm on pursuit of happiness just like Chris Gardner
it's nonfiction I be spittin' with conviction
going through the doors cats before me already kicked in

Hook:

It's a passion for success, that burns deep inside me
it pushes me, it drives me, it leads me, it guides me
it tirelessly inspires me, look inside my diary
listen close to me you can hear the fire in me
It's a passion for success, that burns deep inside me
it pushes me, it drives me, it leads me, it guides me
it tirelessly inspires me, look inside my diary
listen close to me you can hear the fire in me

Verse 2:

I'm blessed and highly favored, I'm fresh and mildly flavored
I good a good taste in beats that are widely savored
I debated going back to school getting more educated
coming into work at 5am I'm not that dedicated
I get agitated, frustrated, aggravated
cause I want my j-o-b to be music related
I'm thankful that I got a gig but even though I hate it
I heard that Puffy never sleeps that's probably how he made it
I got the drive I just need to get up in that lane
cats thats more successful than me I pick their brain
cause a man is what he thinketh, that's what they tell me
you'd rather be rich and wealthy, or poor and healthy
I want some of both, gotta switch my gears up
heard a Dr. King Speech it made me start to tear up
he made me wanna put passion in my rhymes
those who mind don't matter, those who matter don't mind

Hook:

It's a passion for success, that burns deep inside me
it pushes me, it drives me, it leads me, it guides me
it tirelessly inspires me, look inside my diary
listen close to me you can hear the fire in me
It's a passion for success, that burns deep inside me
it pushes me, it drives me, it leads me, it guides me
it tirelessly inspires me, look inside my diary
listen close to me you can hear the fire in me


Verse 3:

Please don't try to pump up my head when I rhyme
I'm so humble, put my pants on one leg at a time
I'm trying, to make songs to make you lose control
but at the the same time I write songs to move your soul
yo this music consumes me the love is authentic
I lay down in the sound bed and get lost in it
I wake up the next morning feeling like I'm worthless
just existing not even knowing my purpose
tryna crack the formula and learn the method
applying the attitude times ability and effort
alotta cats just be rappin' for no reason
you gotta make it happen cause action has no season
so when the Most High calls you home
and people read the birth date and death date on your stone
make sure you leave your mark, even in the hereafter
cause the dash in between them dates is all that matters

Hook:

It's a passion for success, that burns deep inside me
it pushes me, it drives me, it leads me, it guides me
it tirelessly inspires me, look inside my diary
listen close to me you can hear the fire in me
It's a passion for success, that burns deep inside me
it pushes me, it drives me, it leads me, it guides me
it tirelessly inspires me, look inside my diary
listen close to me you can hear the fire in me
