Go on the offensive and grow your retirement fund.
Get on the defensive to protect your wealth.

A MILLION STRONG (VIP ANTHEM)
Written/performed by David Wilkinson Produced by James Childs
Humble beginnings, small Kentucky town,
Momma Hogan raised him right, but still he looked around and wondered,
“Should I go play ball, or get in the ring and fight?
But God, do you have a bigger dream for me tonight
that I cannot see with my own eyes?”
That’s when Hogan finally realized that all he had do was believe
that one day God would put him up on a stage and put him on a podcast mic
and rock A MILLION PLAYS!
No, never going back ‘cause he knows that…
I was made for this, and I ain’t going out ‘til I take it…
what I came to get, I was made for this…
and I will never lose I was made for this… just face it…
I was made for this…
Yeah, we’re calling all VIPs, saddle up!
Our posse is ready ‘cause Hogan’s on the hunt
A man on a mission, nomadic with vision, so make your decision:
Will you choose to leave all your broken dreams behind you?
And ride to the fight to destroy what will bind you?
The anthem we ride to, it didn’t start today but when you pressed play
Now a million strong…
Believe your dreams are coming true, grab the reigns and sing along
‘Cause this is your song…
I was made for this, and I ain’t going out ‘til I take it… what I came to get…
I was made for this, and I will never lose I was made for this… just face it…
I was made for this, and I ain’t going out ‘til I take it… what I came to get…
I was made for this, and I ain’t going out I was made for this…
And I will never lose… I was made for this…
Remember the door where you left your excuses
Remember this day, remember that you must choose this
And never forget that nobody gives you anything
A fighter’s legit when unafraid to take everything
Don’t matter the opponent and no matter the moment
If you got a dream VIPs you got to get bloody
No retreat or surrender, no begging, no barter
Take every single shot and show them you can hit harder!
So be strong and sing along…
I was made for this… I was made for this… just face it… I was made for this!
Our gift to you! The full version is waiting for you here:
