I walk the line
I stay out the way, yeah
Never speak my mind
Living in a shade of grey

But the more I get to know me
The more you start to show me
This isn't how it's meant to be
So I'll just keep on walkin'
And you can keep on talkin'
I'ma have to make a scene, yeah

I played it safe
Been afraid my whole life
Now things have changed
Won't stay silent this time

No, I'm not backing down
No, you can't count me out
Nothing in this world gonna stop me now
No, I'm not backing down
No, I'm not backing down, down, down

No, I'm not backing
No, I'm not backing down

I've watched the game
I've stood on the sidelines
That same old same
But now it's my time, yeah

'Cause if you don't stand for nothing
You'll always fall for something
This isn't how it's meant to be
So I'll just keep on walkin'
And let 'em do the talkin'
I'ma have to make a scene, yeah

I played it safe
Been afraid my whole life
Now things have changed
Won't stay silent this time

No, I'm not backing down
No, you can't count me out
Nothing in this world gonna stop me now
No, I'm not backing down
No, I'm not backing down, down, down

[Tedashii]
I've been there, did that
Afraid to be me so I hid that
Gripped with the fear so I disappeared
Then dropped to the ground like a missed catch
But I, I'm done with that
You can tell 'em all that I'm done with that
No more backing down into the background
That's now, 'cause I put them old habits down
I follow the Leader, and where He may take me may make me a leader
It's wrote on the wall, all you need do is read it
Can't be a lame duck and go soar with the eagles
So I'm crossing the line
Tell 'em all dawg that I've lost too much time
Ain't staying in this place 'cause I gotta win the race
And I'm running for a crown, can't backing down, nah

I played it safe
Been afraid my whole life
Now things have changed
Won't stay silent this time

No, I'm not backing down
No, you can't count me out
Nothing in this world gonna stop me now
No, I'm not backing down
No, I'm not backing down, down, down
