Tried everything

[Part 1: RAF Camora]
Grown up in West Vienna in the nineties
Between Serbian war signs on the facade of the houses
Foreign my language, no idea what people were expecting
They asked me, "Was do you want to become?", I said, "A star", I dreamt of the raven
Every evening in the church because Mom said, "Be grateful for what we have!" (Mum)
Your father is currently in his twenties, so who shall pay for your Nintendo? (Dad)
Since then I wanted to save my first million until the next millenium (but)
But cracking bicylces and selling weed was not even enough for the Pennymarkt1 brands
The millenium came, still poor, I dreamt of the raven,
The 2000s, I smoke bong like a junkie, in my cloud
I made beats that in fact sound like shit but I found them great
Thousand texts at the rearmost desk pf my class
(I was sent) straightforward to the street by headmaster of a bitch - disgrace!
Eyerything what I told them was:
 
[Hook 1: Bonez MC]
I have tried everything!
McDonald's for four hundred Euro, (it) didn't work out
School lessons were fun, but I didn't get it
My teachers treated me back then so that I will come to no good - I was frustrated
(I) didn't even study
From schooling to Hartz IV2, I have tried everything
(I) didn't know what to do with myself, (I) got myself utterly tattoed
All teachers treated me back then so that I will come to no good
But now I am standing here and I have more cash than you
 
[Part 2: RAF Camora]
2-0-0-7, (I) moved to Berlin (*peng peng*)
That's the way it should run, (I) am sitting for hours only on beats
to place them on any album
Nobody wants them and the managers even discourage me from producing
(I) stand frustrated every evening in front of Bushido posters, (I) dream of the raven
No cent in the pocket, the job center bitch is completely stumped
Zero support for me without work and citizenship
(I) give concerts in front of empty clubs, (I) am so sick of all these humilations
Before falling asleep pictures of their mangy laughter, (I) dream of the raven (ah)
2010 - I place tapes on the market, only with MySpace as Promo
(I) earned cash for the first time, the first bitches liked my picture
but revenue officers enter my flat, at first there was the threat
Then they took everything - disgrace!
Eyerything what I told them was:
 
[Hook 1: Bonez MC]
I have tried everything!
McDonald's for four hundred Euro, (it) didn't work out
School lessons were fun, but I didn't get it
My teachers treated me back then so that I will come to no good - I was frustrated

From schooling to Hartz IV2, I have tried everything
(I) didn't know what to do with myself, (I) got myself utterly tattoed
All teachers treated me back then so that I will come to no good
But now I am standing here and I have more cash than you
 
[Bridge: RAF Camora]
Now I am standing here
Suddenly everyone took part, they post pictures of me
Ahh, believe me, I have not forgotten anything, no, you are only tolerated
Ahh, (I) piss form West Vienna directly on your posh area
Ah, until the last one understands, until the last one sees it
 
[Hook 2: RAF Camora]
It has worked out
Yes, Alpha A7 roadster anthracite foliated
Revenue officers greeting, they made half a million out of me
The headmaster's daughter got sodomized backstage by the whole gang, I got sponsored
A raven in the back who controls everything around me
It has worked out
It has worked out, yes, it has worked out
It has worked out
Mum, see, Dad, look, it has worked out
It has worked out
It has worked out, yes, it has worked out
It has worked out
Tell everybody who once knew me it has worked out
