Lyrics

ALL THAT I AM

Written By: By Jesse Damon, Paul Sabu

(VERSE)
HONESTY, INTEGRITY, ARE ALL YOU GOT TO DEFEND
JEALOUSY, AND MISERY, ARE ALL YOU REALLY GOT IN THE END
RIVALS WILL LOSE OUT AND ENEMIES FALL OUT AND FADE AWAY
DON'T YOU KNOW THAT TRUTH IS ON MY SIDE AND ALL I GOT IS MY PRIDE
SO STAY AWAY
(CHORUS)
ALL THAT I HAVE, ALL THAT I AM,
ALL THAT I'LL BE MEANS NOTHING
IF I DON'T FIGHT , IF I DON'T WIN
ALL THAT I AM MEANS NOTHING
(VERSE)
CAN'T YOU SEE, THAT YOU AND ME, CAN NEVER SEE EYE TO EYE
DESTINY, OF WHAT WILL BE, CAN NEVER BE DENIED
DON'T YOU KNOW THAT
RIVALS WILL LOSE OUT AND ENEMIES FALL OUT AND FADE AWAY
ALL I KNOW IS TRUTH IS ON MY SIDE AND ALL I GOT IS MY PRIDE
SO STAY AWAY
(CHORUS)
ALL THAT I HAVE, ALL THAT I AM,
ALL THAT I'LL BE MEANS NOTHING
IF I DON'T FIGHT , IF I DON'T WIN
ALL THAT I AM MEANS NOTHING
(BRIDGE)
RAGE OF ANGER, COMES LIKE A FLOOD
ANY SIGN OF DANGER, I CAN SMELL THE BLOOD
(SOLO)
(ENDING CHORUS)
ALL THAT I HAVE, ALL THAT I AM,
ALL THAT I'LL BE MEANS NOTHING
IF I DON'T FIGHT , IF I DON'T WIN
ALL THAT I AM MEANS NOTHING
RAGE OF ANGER, COMES LIKE A FLOOD
ANY SIGN OF DANGER, I CAN SMELL THE BLOOD
