  • And everybody know the story of David and Goliath
    But this is bigger than triumph
    This is for the warrior, this is for you and I
    This is for euphoria, give me a piece of mind
    God is recording this, won't you look in the sky?
    Tell him that you got the behavior of your neighbor
    Even when stability's never in your favor
    Fly with the turbulence, only last a minute
    Land on your dreams, and recognize you live it
    Walk through the valley and peaks, with bare feet
    Run through the flames, that's more passion for me
    I passed testimony just so the world can see
    Battle wounds on me, you watching me lick 'em clean
    I know, I know, my pride, my goals, my highs, my lows
    I know, I know, it's mind control
    I know I could prosper, no impostor, prosecute my posture
    I stand up and I stand by her, what?

    I am a freedom fighter
    The name that history wrote
    And even through disaster
    Eye of the tiger for hope
    I'm trying to find my way back
    There's no day off for heroes
    And even when I'm tired
    Go is the only word I know

    And the night is takin' over
    And the moonlight gets exposure
    And the players have been chosen
    And it seems like fate has spoken
    When it seems your faith has broken
    By the second, losin' focus
    Ain't no way to get off, get off, get off, get off
    Unless you move forward

    I'll bet they wonder how I go on, go on
    I'll bet they wonder how I go on, go on
    I'll simply say it's on again
    It's on again, whoa
    The world don't stop, it's on again
    It's on again, whoa

    I am a lonely hero
    Trying to fight my battles
    Life likes to blow the cold wind
    Sometimes it freezes my shadow
    In the midst of all this darkness
    I sacrifice my ego
    There ain't no room for selfish
    We do it for the people

    And the night is takin' over
    And the moonlight gets exposure
    And the players have been chosen
    And it seems like fate has spoken
    When it seems your faith has broken
    By the second, losin' focus
    Ain't no way to get off, get off, get off, get off
    Unless you move forward

    I'll bet they wonder how I go on, go on
    I'll bet they wonder how I go on, go on
    I'll simply say it's on again
    It's on again, whoa
    The world don't stop, it's on again
    It's on again, whoa

    Say the work don't stop, 'cause they don't stop
    And everybody here tryna get on top
    Everybody from the burbs down to the block
    Gotta hold on tight and don't let go, let go
    Huh, so you think you hot?
    Gotta grind hard, give it all you got
    You can have, or you can have not
    You see that a lot in the ghetto (ghetto)

    How I go on, go on
    I'll bet they wonder how I go on, go on
    I'll simply say it's on again
    It's on again, whoa
    The world don't stop, it's on again
    It's on again, whoa Writer/s: Alicia Augello-Cook, Hans Zimmer, Kendrick Lamar, Pharrell Williams
