VERSE 1
(BIG MO-BERG)

Before I take my restin' place in the dirt,
I hope I'm known for takin' what I have and makin' it work,
And seen there's more to me than only makin' a verse,
Took my dreams and poetry and made a quake in the earth,
You get nothin' never takin' a chance,
And it's hard to stand tall never takin' a stance,
When they remember me, what'll be they memory?
Hopin' when it's all said and done, it'll be my legacy,
Or maybe that I created my own destiny,
Fell down hard but never let it get the best of me,
Never slowed for anybody who tested me,
Showed gratitude for those who seen the best in me,
Gave it all and spent whatever was left of me,
Broke the old mold, created my own recipe,
Did the best that I could to achieve a better me,
So when I rest in peace, I'm hopin' that y'all remember me,

HOOK
(DEMO)

Take a look into your reflection,
It's up to you to choose your direction,
This life could be a curse or you can make it a blessin',
But in the end you gotta ask one question,
How will they remember me when I'm gone?
How will they remember me when I'm gone?

VERSE 2
(KABOOSE)

It's been a long road of rhyme styles and rhetoric,
I'm a full time husband and father who's spittin' venomous,
Building steppin' stones wit poems and steady prevalence,
Maintain through the stress inside my mental edifice,
And live this out before death becomes my exodus,
Escape traditionalism and give em wisdom as my evidence,
I'm paying dues, stayin' true wit these elements,
I'm trying to educate and demonstrate wit intelligence,
It's more than 808s and booty shakes and being relevant,
I'm tryin' to open minds, be the reflection of what a legend is,
A collection of memories, mixed wit exact sediments,
I stay reaching' for life while I'm peddlin' this medicine,
My nose to the grindstone as I fine tune this frequency,
Repeatedly, hopin' that what you see in me is easily,
More than just the words that express my soul,
It's the heart inside of a man as I walk this road,

HOOK
(DEMO)

Take a look into your reflection,
It's up to you to choose your direction,
This life could be a curse or you can make it a blessin',
But in the end you gotta ask one question,
How will they remember me when I'm gone?
How will they remember me when I'm gone?

VERSE 3
(THAT MANIAC ZACK)

So many mistakes that I made, but when I'm laid in my grave,
Will they be able to say that I really wasted my days?
But a lot of places await, so many faces and names,
But can I honestly say that I made a positive change?
I had a lot on my brain, but did it matter? It's strange,
I though of life as a game and only wanted to play,
So you can find me on stage, a lot of time for no pay,
But never one to complain, I loved the feelin' it gave,
And if I wasn't at a show, you could find me at home,
Watchin' my family grow, playin' the dad role,
Plus I had a small, close circle of bros that I was blessed enough to know, but cursed to have to let go,
So when it's my time, I know I'll be fine, remember me for bein' kind and polite, but willin' to fight, and stand for what's right,
So if I die tonight, I'm satisfied I got to live my life behind my eyes, so try to realize, and,

HOOK
(DEMO)

Take a look into your reflection,
It's up to you to choose your direction,
This life could be a curse or you can make it a blessin',
But in the end you gotta ask one question,
How will they remember me when I'm gone?
How will they remember me when I'm gone?
