Born a survivor, like father, like gun
Built to outlast where you came from
Nothing comes easy when nothing is handed to you
Taught yourself how to turn the tides
Walk ashore before the waters rise
Even when you're down, you're still coming through
Making diamonds out of dust
You'll shine before you turn to rust
Never by the book, always underestimated
It's hard to believe the life that you created
Self made
Learned from the will of the working man
Breaking hard ground for a piece of land
Up before the sun and down before the rising moon
Oh fought for the things that were never yours
Settle for less and hope for more
God and pouring rain never come too soon
Making diamonds out of dust
Who you are is who you trust
Never by the book, always underestimated
It's hard to believe the life that you created
The impossible endeavor never would you trade
It's a legacy that you take to the grave
Self made, self made
Live and die by the chance we're taking
Money don't buy the life that we're making
Never by the book, always underestimated
It's hard to believe the life that you created
The impossible endeavor never would you trade
It's a legacy that you take to the grave
Self made, self made
Live and die by the chance we're taking
Self made
Money don't buy the life that we're making
Self made
Live and die by the chance we're taking
Self made
Money don't buy the life that we're making
Self made
Live and die by the chance we're taking
Self made
Money don't buy the life that we're making
