Track Name: D.I.Y.
DIY, Don't rely,On the people around you who only try,
To bring you down, Fuck you around,Hold you to their ways and make you comply.

DIY,Do or Die, When you get knocked down hold your head up high,
Trust in yourself,don't ever deny,the strength in your heart that'll help you get by.

DIY,always deny,the temptation of greed and those who justify,
Why they're in it for the money,in it for the fame,don't care who they step on,don't care if they lie.

DIY,ask yourself why, would you hand over control just to satisfy,
A man in a suit, a man in a tie, a business man with pound signs in his eyes.

DIY, diversify. Spread your efforts and intensify,
No need to hide,no need to falsify,if we beat they at their own game we can unify.
