On the independent mission, crank, lower the drawbridge
As it comes across the moat, clinch, climbing a tall ridge
Break in through the gate, change, hide by the wall quick
Patrol is making rounds, quick, duck in and dodge it
Now I was here a year ago when that first snow fell
But I’ve unpacked all those boxes, suitcase hotels
Are a thing of the past in this experienced journey
When you live for every moment make it Kodak worthy
And I’m talking from the lessons that my life is exposin’
Cause there’s few and far between when you’re gifted and chosen
Now the writtens have risen to an incredible level
And you can finally tell the difference fro the pot and the kettle
So we strive for the best no need or reason to settle
And we gotta push it further put the pedal to metal
Then we check the c4 off the 86er’s checklist
Blow a hole through the wall, unexpected guests bitch

Take my time, storm, storm the castle
Just to break in and steal the keys
Take my pride, storm, storm the castle
Just to dethrone the queen

Second floor, up the stairs, made it past the guards,
Peasants running around cause nobody’s in charge
But they’re looking for the king, he’s familiar with the scene
Seeking shelter in the shadows but it’s harder than it seems
When the watch tower guard saw it all and fleed
But the crossbow’s arrow struck his soul he bleeds
On their groveling knees, “won’t you spare us please?”
“I’m not here for you, I want the crown of your queen.”
With a sigh of relief, he stops and grits his teeth
Its back to the mission, take my faith and leap
Conquering the fears I come across and meet
While sliding under gates past the grip of defeat
I received the FRC crest, wear it reason
To overthrow the queen, in the village its treason
I’m not here to comply, to defy it’s pleasin’
But this is my sport and its a year long season


Top floor, something’s wrong, nobody around
Its known that the keep has fallen guarding the crown
The robe is in sight, focus up buckle down
Cause the second in command is taking over this town
He can see it now, looking over the crowd
They all scream and shout but he loves it loud
Stand up for your beliefs, preach, attest, avow
To leave the next generation well endowed
With the will to compete and reign elite
Supreme over others with no lie or deceit
Leave the boors satisfied, full and complete
Follow through with the promise that accepted this seat
Because its well deserved and not easily earned
He’s only getting closer time to calm his nerves
He’s kicks down the door to find the seat is reserved
Its been empty all along but now his voice has been heard

Took my time, stormed, stormed the castle
Just to break in and steal the keys
Took my pride, stormed, stormed the castle
And I dethroned the queen
