lyrics

Under the Radar

It better be good
If it is carved out of stone
It’s been along time comin
On top of this thrown.
Kings and Queens they all step a side.
It’s everyone else who wants a free ride.
It’s been this way from the start, will till the day I die.
Let me ask you sir just if I may,
Why is it, that you can’t find your own way.
He said, “Because I fly, a little under the radar.

Taken cash, wrong names on the check
Why should I give part of my money
To Uncle Sam and the Government.
Yeah that’s the way I learned and that’s the way I spent
My days getting food, and paying my rent.
That’s the way its been making friends every night
Putting action to words, trying to make it right.
Getting tired, getting tired. Still seem so wired.
I’ll have time to close my eyes when I expire.
Out a my way, cause I’m going out of my way
To come to your town because we love to play
Everyday we live, so the music can be saved
We’re doing what we love so we know we got it made
Open your doors yes and close you eyes, let the music in
Just sit back and relax, put your money on the man
Who will work to win, doing everything he can, let it soak in.
But don’t forget the name, we’re glad to be here and so glad that you came.
It’s not for the money, and not for the fame.
But if I had to do something else I’d probably go insane.
