Lyrics

[Intro: Tanya Lacey]
Check-check
Check-check, check one
Can't hold me down, can't hold me back
Me have fi burn every track

[Verse 1: Tinchy]
On your marks, get set, I'm here, let's go
I got my eyes all set on the roads
Before we go, yo, I make sure my stylee's got swagger
I stay sobered up with no lager, and I've still got skulls on my garments
My mum keeps telling me it's alarming
Roll then we rock the show like Mick Jagger
The further I go, the further I am to the end of the roads
But I'll get through the freezing cold, rainy days
Plus nights of snow, I can't hear "no"s

[Pre-Chorus: Tinchy]
I feel like superman
I'm ready for the world, make sure they know that
And this is the route I chose
Watch me, I let the truth unfold
I've got a super plan, I'll fly through it all
I will not hold back
I'm set so I aim for my goals
That's why I bring it to life at shows

[Chorus: Tanya Lacey]
I've been through the best and the worst times
Still I'm striding on cause you know I'm rolling
Give me the beat and I'm rolling
Yeah
Just one stage, a mic and a mic lead
Light comes down, the spotlight is on me
Rolling, give me the beat and I'm rolling
Yeah
Can't hold me down, can't hold me back
Me have fi burn every track
Can't step down, all I know is attack
Step to the mic, now I'm bringing it back

[Verse 2: Tinchy]
Yo, on your marks, get set, I'm here, let's leave
I can see them crawling creeps
Before I leave, chill, breathe
Make sure my rhymes have got ammo
I'm ready for war, I'm like Rambo
I'm just like you, I'm around
Me, I can walk to the shops, I'm about
Just know that the car I drive is no Lambo
Try to proceed, end of the road, I can all but see
I'll go deep into the blazing heat
I'm down, I ride for my peeps, you know why

[Pre-Chorus: Tinchy]

[Chorus: Tanya Lacey]

[Middle 8: Tinchy]
I'm really prepared, you can check my stance
My eyes are so focused, no quick glance
Before I bounce, yo, Strydes
I make sure my flows are still lightning
They keep trying to pull me into the drama
They all wanna see me burn in the lava
But I keep blazing back, I'm still firing
I get low, take it all in, then I hit that road
Smell it in the air, man, it's all in the nose
Raging bull, I see red light rose
You know why

[Pre-Chorus: Tinchy]

[Chorus: Tanya Lacey]

[Outro: Tanya Lacey]
Step to the mic, now I'm bringing it back
Step to the mic, now I'm bringing it back
