Lyrics of My Shot

I am not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo I'm just like my country
I'm young scrappy and hungry
And I'm not throwing away my shot
I'm a get a scholarship to King's college
I probably shouldn't brag but dag I amaze and astonish
The problem is I got a lot of brains but no polish
I gotta holler just to be heard
With every word
I drop knowledge
I'm a diamond in the rough a shiny piece of coal
Tryin' to reach my goal my power of speech unimpeachable
Only nineteen but my mind is older
These New York city streets get colder I shoulder
Every burden every disadvantage
I have learned to manage
I don't have a gun to brandish
I walk these streets famished the plan is to fan this spark into a flame
But damn it's getting dark so let me spell out the name
I am the
A-L-E-X-A-N-D-E-R we are meant to be
A colony that runs independently
Meanwhile Britain keeps shittin' on us endlessly
Essentially they tax us relentlessly
Then King George turns around runs a spending spree
He ain't ever gonna set his descendants free
So there will be a revolution in this century
Don't be shocked when your history book mentions me
I will lay down my life if it sets us free
Eventually you'll see my ascendancy
And I am not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo I'm just like my country
I'm young scrappy and hungry
And I'm not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo I'm just like my country
I'm young scrappy and hungry
And I'm not throwing away my shot
I dream of life without a monarchy
The unrest in France will lead to onarchy?
Onarchy?
How you say
How you say anarchy?
When I fight I make the other side panicky with my shot
Yo I'm a tailor's apprentice and I got y'all knuckleheads in loco parentis
I'm joining the rebellion 'cos I know it's my chance to socially advance instead of sewin' some pants
I'm gonna take a shot but we'll never be truly free until those in bondage have the same rights as you and me
You and I, do or die wait 'till I sally in on a stallion with the first black battalion
Have another shot geniuses lower your voices
You keep out of trouble and you double your choices
I'm with you but the situation is fraught
You've got to be carefully taught
If you talk you're gonna get shot
Burr check what we got
Mister Lafayette hard rock like Lancelot
I think your pants look hot
Laurens I like you a lot
Let's hatch a plot blacker than the kettle callin' the pot
What are the odds the gods would put us all in one spot?
Poppin' a squat on conventional wisdom like it or not
A bunch of revolutionary manumission abolitionists?
Give me a position show me where the ammunition is
Oh am I talkin' too loud?
Sometimes I get over excited shoot off at the mouth
I never had a group of friends before
I promise that I'll make y'all proud
Let's get this guy in front of a crowd
I am not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo I'm just like my country
I'm young scrappy and hungry
And I'm not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo I'm just like my country
I'm young scrappy and hungry
And I'm not throwing away my shot
Everybody sing
Hey
Ooh
Let 'em hear ya
Let's go
I said shout it to the rooftops said to the rooftops
Come on
Come on, let's go
Rise up when you're living on your knees you rise up
Tell your brother that he's gotta rise up
Tell your sister that she's gotta rise up
When are these colonies gonna rise up?
When are these colonies gonna rise up?
When are these colonies gonna rise up?
When are these colonies gonna rise up? Rise up?
I imagine death so much it feels more like a memory
When's it gonna get me?
In my sleep?
Seven feet ahead of me?
If I see it comin' do I run or do I let it be?
Is it like a beat without a melody?
See I never thought
I'd live past twenty
Where I come from some get half as many
Ask anybody why we livin' fast
And we laugh reach for a flask we have to make this moment last that's plenty
Scratch that
This is not a moment it's the movement
Where all the hungriest brothers with something to prove went?
Foes oppose us we take an honest stand
We roll like Moses claimin' our promised land
And if we win our independence?
Is that a guarantee of freedom for our descendants?
Or will the blood we shed begin an endless cycle of vengeance and death with no defendants?
I know the action in the street is excitin'
But Jesus between all the bleedin' and fightin'
I've been readin' and writin' we need to handle our financial situation
Are we a nation of states?
What's the state of our nation?
I'm past patiently waitin' I'm passionately
Smashin' every expectation every action's an act of creation
I'm laughin' in the face of casualties and sorrow
For the first time
I'm thinkin' past tomorrow
And I am not throwing away my shot
I am not throwing away my shot
Hey yo I'm just like my country
I'm young scrappy and hungry
And I'm not throwing away my shot
We're gonna rise up time to take a shot
We're gonna rise up time to take a shot
We're gonna rise up
Rise up, time to take a shot
Rise up
Rise up, so we take a shot
Rise up, so we take a shot
Rise up, take a shot, shot, shot
And now it's time to take a shot
Time to take a shot
And I am not throwing away my not throwing away my shot
