Madball : Hold It Down

歌词

1. INTRO

(Instrumental)


2. CAN'T STOP, WON'T STOP

You are the blood running through my veins
You are the streets that made me this way
In you ive lost and regained faith but in my silence i'll never betray
These are the streets where men are made
Where our values are sometimes plagued into temptation i dwell for days
And i cant stop, wont stop living by the gun
Never one to run from my fears
Can't stop livin this way and i know what my life means to me

I see theres things that shouldnt be,
I see theres still hope for me
But i see myself in these streets and i try but i can't stop
You say theres still time but i wont stop
And i know theres still hope for me
But i see myself in these streets
I pray theres hope for me


3. HOLD IT DOWN

Enough times been wasted and now im faced
With our realities and whats to come of this scene
So many come and go, some have disgraced it
I think its time we take a stand show them what we mean
You cant stop this, this thinkg of ours
Hold it down

This things is ours, hardcore is ours
Time after time, line after line
I must express the truth cuz that is what we stand for
Some live to lie they will defy and deny our roots i pay no mind
You no who we care for
And im not only speaking for myself i can't
I hope i speak for everyone else out there
Cuz a lot of people think that we don't care
But they cant stop what im bringing cant stop what in bringing
Tryin' to make a change do what i can
They cant stop what im bringing cant stop what in bringing
You cant stop what we're bringing
Tryin' to make a change and hold it down cuz we can


4. FALL THIS TIME

You better think quick,
Act fast before its time you take another blast
You better think about where you stand cuz it seems youre on the wrong path
Used to look down, talk down
Now you walk down the same path blown out
You're foolin yourself, youre not proud
So lean on me to come down
Choose youre own fate, but this ain't mine
You've fallen from grace,
I won't let you fall this time
Out back to back days sniffin' gawk,
Now youre really on the wrong track
Do you really want to come back?
Are you losing yourself and do you want that?
I fall this time
It's not a necessity,
It's just a fantasy and its too much for me
Too much of anything is not a good thing
Fallen and now i plead


5. EVERYDAY HATE

Everyday i hate more and more cuz i know the truth
It's just a role you play and nothing more
Lifes a game to you
But i live by another set of rules and i know jsut what it takes to prove
Yhat weak at heart is what youll always be
Your fake ass wont compete with me
It must be hard to live in disgrace
They know the truth and now who should you blame?
You have no fucking shame
Im the one so blame me
everyday i hate i can not relate
You'll never be a part of my scene
You're just a sucka me,
A fucking wanna be
Now come and throw joints with me


6. DONE...

My memories of better days still stand in my way
Because no matter what i say i still play your game
The frustration of wanting things that you cant see
And it's hurting you but its killing me,
It's feeding my disbelief
And i take back all that i've done
I cant take back, whats done is done
I've seen the pain in your face,
The pain in your eyes
It's no surprise to me,
I see what i've done wrong.
No sense in holdin on,
Now standin side by side,
I hope i tried
I realize its the end of our time,
The end of our lives together
Now theres no words left for me to say cuz i know that things wont change
And theres nothin left to rearrange,
All thats left is the memory
I cant take back all that ive done
And there's nothin left for me to say because whats done is done


7. SAY WHAT?

Say what you want to say - the same old thing
Say what you want to play - the same old game
Say what you want to say - i won't change
Say what you want to say - just look my way

What you see is what you get
This is who i am, nothing less
You think youre better but you bleed red
Like the rest of us but are you willing to
Now thats the real test
Who you know,
Where youre from and what youve done in my eyes!
None of that matters
Staying true to yourself is what we strive for!
Staying true to myself, now whos hardcore?
I say it now, i said it then!
For all those who always try to offend
You paint a picture but you still dont comprehend
One thing about me cuz you aint my friend


8. D.I.F.F.M.

This song goes out to all the kids out there who are keeping it real and turning their backs on any hardcore bands that make any money
Fuck that man
Hardcore isn't about money,
It's a way of life
sure i live with my mom right now,
But i'd live on the streets if i had to
And i know deep in my heart,
That one day, i'll go to college,
Get a real job,
And forget all about hardcore
But until then im gonna talk as much shit as i can.
Diy!

D.I.F.F.M. fuck you!
D.I.F.F.M. fuck you!
D.I.F.F.M. fuck you!
D.I.F.F.M. fuck you!
D.I.F.F.M. fuck you!


9. SHOW NO FEAR

I will not hesitate,
If i wait, i give in to chance and i cant live life that way
Can you read my face,
There's no way i'll turn and walk away so just make your mistake
So when the time comes i don't care,
When the time comes i'll be there,
When the time comes show no fear,
'Cuz it's time and im right here
I will not lose face, i'll save,
Everything i am cuz thats just how i was made
I will not hesitate,
If i wait i give into chance and i can't live life that way
A wise man once said to me
"Son, dont you ever back down to no one",
'Cuz i'll be there, dont show no fear


10. NEVER LOOK BACK

I know its hard for me to see,
The way things have come to be but i must leave it be
Can't keep looking back,
I don't know how to act
I don't know where to start,
I know i've been here before
My conscience still believes that it was on me
My guilty heart bleeds don't want to feel this no more
So tell me something since you've done nothing except you lied to me
You said you'd never leave,
After all this i wanted to believe that you still care about my life
Just tell me something so i can go in peace 'cuz we could not make that sacrifice
After all this i wanted to believe that you still care about me
It's hard to see, but it must be,
You take away a piece of me
I never take a step back,
Never look back.
I've come to face the facts and i know where you stand
I won't take another step back, never look back


11. STILL SEARCHING

New times draw upon me i can't for see what's next
But i feel free to do what i have to do,
I answer to, only g.o.d. i look up to.
Can't say i've changed,
Can't say that i'm still the same

I mintain through my mindstrains to figure out the next move without pain
Still searching for teh way to work it out,
Soul searching cant do nothing about what lies next on lifes list,
Will I live, will we ever get out?
Trapped visions that i must believe,
So far away from i can't retreat

Sometimes i find a way to get mine,
Other times im lost, i'm blind.
The pressure gets hard b,
I can't lose track its always on me

I can't stray cuz it wont go away,
Gotta figure out the next move day by day
Times out!
Do or die, it's my time, it's my life, it's my time,
Do or die, do or die, its our time-its our lives
Times out


12. CONFESSIONS

You're always talking but the things you say have no meaning,
They carry no weight
Take your time but don't waste mine
Go sell your stories i'm not looking to buy
We all have flaws but this is your downfall

Talkin' a game you cant even back up and you're so hollow you have no clue
There's repercussions and they're comin' for you
Confessions - i leave it up to you,
I know where i stand.
Oppressions - something i must choose to make you understand
To make you understand i don't share your pains cuz i don't preach about pointless things
I only speak when i have something to say or i won't fake moves disgrace my name
Self pride - i can't throw away,
I have too much love for family
Self pride - i wont throw away,
Raised to be real from the first day


13. THINKING TO MYSELF

Beware of whats around you
The elements of life will sometimes take you in
Bad things always surround you
It's your choice now to think
Crime is easy to come by and temptation is bound to bring you down
Corruption distorts your judgement and it seems you cant trust no one now
Thinking to myself theres a price to pay
Is it worth the pain,
The pain of someone taking your life away?
Saying to myself there is a better way
It's not worth the pain,
The pain of someone taking it all away
Memories are here to remind you,
Learn from your brothers
Don't make their mistakes
Trouble will somehow find you,
It's your choice to contemplate
Crime dont pay in the long run
Money aint worth the risk of death or jail
I'm not judging no one
I'm just thinking, talkin to myself


14. SEMPER FI

Who's by my side, i'm by your side.
My blood is my loyalty,
My brothers are loyal to me.
Who by my side, this is what i believe.

I never backstab another to save mine,
I stand the time.
For me it's do or die,
These are the rules i live by.
And i shed my blood for my brothers of the same mind,
Of the same kind, who never leave my side.
See we never think twice,
And they shed their blood for me.

Who's by my side, i'm by your side.
My blood is my loyalty,
My brothers are loyal to me.
Who by my side, this is what we believe.

We stand for one another in hard times, in good times.
No matter what we find,
A way so we can get by.
And i shed my blood for my brothers of the same mind,
Of the same kind, who never leave my side.
See we never think twice,
And they shed their blood for me.

To a DMS crew always on top
Reppin' nyc you know we don't stop
Going worldwide you know it's non stop
And i shed my blood for my crew
