Amazing lyrics - Kanye West

It's Amazing, I'm the reason
Everybody fired up this evening
I'm exhausted, barely breathing
Holding on to what I believe in
No matter what you'll never take that from me
My reign is as far as you're eyes can see

It's amazing, (huh)
So amazing, (huh) [x3]
It's amazing (huh)
So amazing [x3] (yeah)
It's amazing (let's go)

I'm a monster, I'm a killer, I know I'm wrong (yeah)
I'm a problem, that'll never ever be solved
And no matter what you'll never take that from me
My reign is as far as you're eyes can see

It's amazing, (huh)
So amazing, (huh) [x3]
It's amazing (huh)
So amazing (yeah) [x3]
It's amazing (let's go)

I'm a monster, I'm a mavin
I know this world is changing
Never gave in, never gave up
I'm the only thing I'm afraid of
No matter what you'll never take that from me
My reign is as far as you're eyes can see

If I ain't on my grind, then what you call that
Victorious, yeah we warriors
We make history, and strive off victory
Standing in my podium
I'm tryin'a watch my sodium
Die high blood pressure
Either let the feds catch ya
I'm amazing, born on a full moon
I was bred to get it in, no spoon
That's why I'm so goon, summertime no junes
Big family, small house, no room
They like oh god, why he go so hard
Look what he's been through, he deserves an applause

So amazing (uuuh) [x3]
It's amazing
So amazing [x3]
It's amazing (let's go)
So amazing (amazing) [x3]
It's amazing (let's go)
