(Scratchy "man is bound to fall" 2x)

[HOOK]

Pain inside my heart
Trouble stay on my mind
Everything falls apart
It's happening all the time
Livin by Murphy's Law
Tryin to have it all
Running for instant cover
Every man's bound to fall

[VERSE 1]

Life is short the grind is long
Some of my very best friends are gone
My hustle's strong my money's all all spent
On buying bitches titties and drugs and rent
Work a double shift grind, I can't save a dime
My daughter needs medicine I just can't afford
About to a grab nine, lose my mind
My insurance keeps sayin that they won't pay for it
I'll stage the heist, I'll pay the price
Don't be shocked when I turn to crime, kid
Goin big, I might split your wig
Cause I ain't getting locked for no nickel a dime shit
All that glitters ain't all it seems
The American dream is an American scheme
What you're looking at, what you're trippin on
Who you flippin on, see what I'm grievin on

[HOOK]

[VERSE 2]

I've been breakin my neck just to live correct
Keep my head above water living check to check
I get no respect, I got no regard
Patience is a struggle when times is hard
Paper's in the shortage, tryin to pay the mortgage
I cant't get to work, they repossess my car
Stopped to buy a pistol and kidnap a (mistress?)
Tell me bitch, can you see me from your backyard
This new world session of the Great Depression
I'm living off preemptive inject aggression
You're cryin and you're bitchin on ever politician
My family tradition is heavy ammunition
I cock the hammer, I'ma rock the foe
Got your forehead on lock, dead in my scope
Look me in the eye, what you're lying for?
What you're living by?
What you dyin for?

[HOOK]
