lyrics

Verse 1:

Every line of my verse is like a 45 in reverse……
….. I hear the devil time I rehearse,
Visions of cold bodies getting piled in a hearse,
and me at 27 dead lying in dirt….
But if I do die in the prime of this fine life,
I wanna do it while inside of the limelight,
and at the moment man the timin ain't quite right,
I need to blow up before I'm blinded by white light,
I've paid my dues with the elegant scars,
that line my chest as well the flesh of my arms,
… I wanna be known for reppin it hard,
and setting the bar like my name was Kendrick Lamar,
and once I hit that level of notoriety,
I'll snap, buy a gun, load it violently,
…..Put it up to my left temple and laugh,
Then pull the fucking trigger and turn present to past…

Chorus:
WILL IT BE VIOLENCE OR WILL IT BE DRUGS,
WILL IT BE THE COPS? OR WILL IT BE THE THUGS?
WILL IT BE MY OWN HAND, WILL IT BE MY LOVE'S?
…. THAT WRITES MY NAME IN THE 27------CLUB,


Verse 2:

Yeah, I'm still poppin the same pills...
Trying to make mills out shopping for day quill,
Cigarettes got me coughing up some grey swill,
Mind numb the same way my face feel??
Too many strip clubs, too many long nights,
too many bar fights, but that's alright,
cuz I can take an uppercut to my motherfucking throat,
and still hit the bar for another rum n coke,
Feeling like my whole career is nothing but a joke,
watching every dream I had going up in smoke,
Feeling the vision in my head cut to black,
After a massive overdose of sex, drugs, and rap,
…..But I"m not afraid to make the last entrance,
Raise my glass then take my last exit,
Fade to black then chase this damn deathwish,
and admit my life's played a like breaking bad reference,
