Another night of writing, file saved to copy scripts Lyrics building up, while I’m filling up these floppy disks These young faces spit lines, they flip rhymes in quick time From paper to the label where they’re favoring to get signed You know, at open mics I'd roll the dice So enticed by the glowing lights and flows that I'd go home and write Focused right, sharp as a Bowie knife With a record label dream becoming my only goal in life Envisioned how success will feel, like opening the seventh seal Everything is better, I’d be settled with a record deal Thinking how to measure real, hadn’t fully mastered yet Realized the most important factor was my happiness And soon there came a time where that exited my mind When I noticed no success had come from stories like mine I decide, finally I think I know what's best for my life Not the limelight; just making something that I'd like Success! Doing what you love, loving what you do Success! Always building up, gotta see it through Success! Fire burning bright, light a hundred proof Success! Never giving up, dedicated to Doing what you love, loving what you do Always building up, gotta see it through Success! Fire burning bright, light a hundred proof Success! Never giving up, dedicated to Now I travel every week and get to live my dreams out Doing what I used to dream ‘bout Took an unconventional path to get to the math Learned that when you try force, you can always find that link to the past (yeah) Practical exposure had the value understood To minimize the bad times and maximize the good Fortunate to add mine, befriending all opponents With gratitude, I’m thankful and I’m loving every moment Even when I faced doubt, never took the safe route Thankful to anyone who let us turn the place out Continue bringing it to anyone who wanna listen Forever focused, I got tunnel vision Never looking back, cover tracks, with the future still ahead Sprinting to the finish like the maps in Left 4 Dead Doing what you love, and loving what you do With a crowd full of people, yeah we’re here with you Success! Doing what you love, loving what you do Always building up, gotta see it through Fire burning bright, light a hundred proof Never giving up, dedicated to Doing what you love, loving what you do Success!

Never giving up, dedicated to Successful, a varied phrase, many people quote it Define and then refine it, then that’s the way you own it Finally reminded all the times and all the moments Play it in my mind ‘til I rewind it and reload it Hold it, like someone near and dear, steering clear of all the nonsense Struggle is necessary for progress Makes the night colder, for an indie mic holder But if I’d had a choice I'd do the same twice over Which to say, is we aim for no regrets Might have missed a couple steps, but we always give our best Mind racing, life changing, did it to the death Fitting that we’re winning, ‘cause the mission is success And when I'm done, my friends will exceed my wealth I paid dues ‘til it hurt, still believe I'm felt Yet I always lent a hand to those who need my help But I was never more fulfilled than when I pleased myself Success!

about

2 track single by Dual Core.

The original track started life in early 2017 as an instrumental entitled 'Great Success', inspiring int eighty and Mega Ran to grab their respective mics and explore the topic from a rapper's point of view. The song was created during 2017's Downtime album sessions, with an early mix appearing on a limited-edition preview of the project. However, the optimistic mood of 'Success' didn't quite fit the final release.

In 2020 we gave it a fresh mix and master, and completed c64's (ironically half-finished) 'Failure' Remix—taking the track in a more sombre direction, as a reference to the personal struggles faced in achieving/failing to achieve 'success'.

Expect this to appear on the next (currently untitled) Dual Core album.
