lyrics

Here I come, rougher than the rest of them
The best of them, tougher than leather
You can call me Knuckles, unlike Sonic I don't chuckle
I'd rather flex my muscles
I'm hard as nails, it ain't hard to tell
I break 'em down whether they're solid or frail
Unlike the rest I'm independent
It's my first breath, first test
Feel the right then the worst's left

Born on an island in the heavens
The blood of my ancestors flows inside me
My duty is to save the flower from evil deterioration

I will be the one to set your heart free
(Must) cleanse yourself of that evil spirit that got in you

Streaking lights, loud sounds, and instinct
Are the elements that keep me going
I am fighting my own mission
Nothing's gonna stand in my way

I will be the one to set your heart free
(Must) cleanse yourself of that evil spirit that got in you

Won't be frightened I'll stand up to all the pain and turmoil
Just believe in myself won't rely on others
Get this power to wipe out the havoc and anarchy
This is my planet gonna fight for my destiny

Here I come, rougher than the rest of them
The best of them, tougher than leather
You can call me Knuckles, unlike Sonic I don't chuckle
I'd rather flex my muscles
I'm hard as nails, it ain't hard to tell
I break 'em down whether they're solid or frail
Unlike the rest I'm independent
It's my first breath, first test
Feel the right then the worst's left

I have no such things as weak spots
Don't approve of him but gotta trust him
This alliance has a purpose
This partnership is only temporary

I will be the one to set your heart free
(Must) cleanse yourself of that evil spirit that got in you

Won't be frightened I'll stand up to all the pain and turmoil
Just believe in myself won't rely on others
Freedom will be waiting when serenity is restored
This is my planet I shall not surrender

(Solo)

Won't be frightened I'll stand up to all the pain and turmoil
Just believe in myself won't rely on others
Get this power to wipe out the havoc and anarchy
This is my planet gonna fight

Won't be frightened I'll stand up to all the pain and turmoil
Just believe in myself won't rely on others
Freedom will be waiting when serenity is restored
This is my planet I shall not surrender

The new porcupine on the block with the puff chest
Outa the wilderness with the ruggedness
Knock, knock, it's Knuckles, the bloat thrower
Independent flower, magical emerald holder
Give you the cold shoulder
My spike goes through boulders
That's why I stay a loner
I was born by myself
I don't need a possy, I get it on by myself
Advisories get shelfed
