I’ve decided today
I’m not starting a company
No, I’m building an empire
From the underground

The task will not be easy
There are those who want me to fail
I’m up against the winds against the walls, and
I don’t care

I will persevere
That’s all that I can do
By fire or diamonds
I will rise above

I hope you’re there too

An island
In your future
