ATX

I just wanna be who I choose to be
Walk down the street
Got my merrily

This is ATX
No holds barred
Keep it to myself
Or go out to a bar
Some of the in-between
Call it graffiti, oh that’s art
Looking at the homelessness
Southern hospitality ain’t up to par

I just wanna be who I choose to be
Walking down the street
Inside’s my merrily
I just wanna be who I’m supposed to be
Head-up, centered
God my wholly

God my wholly
God my wholly
Head-up, centered
God my wholly
This is ATX
A land for the free
I can be who I want
Just as long as I’m growing

Gentrification
Renovation
Used to be a different 12th street
Now its got innovation
Torn down tire shops and hair salons
Today its stacked with more creation
When I travel by
I’m the outsider in the station

I just wanna be who I chose to be
Walking down the street
Inside’s my merrily
I just wanna be who I’m supposed to be
Head-up, centered
God my wholly

God my wholly
God my wholly
Head-up, centered
Ancestors behind me
This is ATX
A land for the free
I can be who I want
Just as long as I’m growing

No, there’s no debating
I can’t around sit wasting
My faith level is on another
I gotta to do something big
My mind n’ my vision space
Sky higher than the gutter
Faith level-up on another

I’m just gonna be who I chose to be
Walking down the street
Inside’s my merrily
I’m just gonna be who I’m supposed to be
Head-up, centered
God my wholly

God my wholly
God my wholly
Head-up, centered
Ancestors inside me
This is ATX
A land for the free
I can be who I want
Just as long as I’m growing

God my wholly
God my wholly
Head-up, centered
Ancestors beside me
This is ATX
A land for the free
I can be who I want
Best believe I am growing
Gonna be who I chose to be
Head-up, centered
Ancestors behind me
God my wholly
God my wholly
