  • Life is like a big merry-go-round
    You're up and then down
    Going in circles tryin' to get to where you are
    Everybody's been cutting you out
    But where are they now?
    Sitting in the same old place
    Just faces in the crowd
    We all make mistakes
    You might fall on your face
    But you gotta get up!

    I'd rather stand tall
    Than live on my knees
    'Cause I'm a conqueror
    And I won't accept defeat
    Try telling me no
    One thing about me
    Is I'm a conqueror
    I am a conqueror
    Ooh oh

    Got a vision that no one else sees
    Lot of dirty work, roll up your sleeves
    Remember there's a war out there
    So come prepared to fight!
    You never know where the road leads ya
    Not everyone's gonna believe ya
    And even though they're wrong,
    Don't prove 'em right

    I'd rather stand tall
    Than live on my knees (Can't live on my knees)
    'Cause I'm a conqueror
    And I won't accept defeat
    Try telling me no
    One thing about me
    Is I'm a conqueror
    I am a conqueror
    Oh oh (Ooh ooh)

    I am a conqueror

    We all make mistakes
    You might fall on your face
    But you gotta get up!
    We all make mistakes
    You might fall on your face
    Don't ever give up!

    I'd rather stand tall
    Than live on my knees
    'Cause I'm a conqueror
    And I won't accept defeat
    Try telling me no
    One thing about me
    Is I am a conqueror
    I am a conqueror
    Oh oh

    I am a conqueror, oh no

    We all make mistakes
    You might fall on your face
    But I am a conqueror Writer/s: AKIL KING, ANGEL LEONA HIGGS, CLAUDE KELLY, ESTELLE SWARAY, JARAMYE DANIELS, JOHN LARDIERI, KYLE OWENS, SHARIF SLATER
