  • I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
    I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
    To fly
    To fly

    Uh yo, yo,
    I wish today it will rain all day
    Maybe that will kinda make the pain go away
    Trying to forgive you for abandoning me
    Praying but I think I'm still an angel away
    Angel away, yeah strange in a way
    Maybe that is why I chase strangers away
    They got their guns out aiming at me
    But I become Neo when they aiming at me
    Me, me, me against them
    Me against enemies, me against friends
    Somehow they both seem to become one
    A sea full of sharks and they all smell blood
    They start coming and I start rising
    Must be surprising, I'm just surmising
    I win, thrive, soar, higher, higher, higher, more fire

    I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
    I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
    To fly
    To fly

    Uh yo, yo
    Everybody wanna try to box me in
    Suffocating every time it locks me in
    Paintin' they own pictures than they crop me in
    But I will remain where the top begins
    'Cause I am not a word, I am not a line
    I am not a girl that can ever be defined
    I am not fly, I am levitation
    I represent an entire generation
    I hear the criticism loud and clear
    That is how I know that the time is near
    So we become alive in a time of fear
    And I ain't got no motherfucking time to spare
    Cry my eyes out for days upon days
    Such a heavy burden placed upon me
    But when you go hard your nay's become yay's
    Yankee Stadium with Jay's and Kanye's

    I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
    I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
    To fly
    To fly

    Get ready for it
    Get ready for it
    Get ready for it
    I came to win
    Get ready for it
    Get ready for it
    Get ready for it

    I came to win, to fight, to conquer, to thrive
    I came to win, to survive, to prosper, to rise
    To fly
    To fly
