Everybody's been asking me lately where I'm from
They wanna know what I've been through and what dirt I've done
But man if I told you what I've seen and been through then you probably
Would know
That your scared of the truth so it's dead and secret line and chalk
See I've been lost ever since I could walk
Looking for my daddy and anyone of mamma's boyfriends that would talk
Well listen to me when I spoke standing there looking at me like a choke

Leaving me behind leaving me to cry when you treated my momma like a ho
But I learned quick that my daddy wasn't ever gonna come around
And I didn't give a shit cause me and my momma we held it down
Little new kid first day of school now we getting held down
But when you come from the trench that's how you learn to walk around
So I don't give a fuck if you ever lay eyes on top of my new shoes homey
I just wanted you to know I didn't need a dollar from you I got 'em myself
So if you find yourself in the middle of the floor with the bottle drinking
Yourself lonely
Then you can keep company with the picture of me in the magazine on the
Shelf turn the page
