I messed around as a little boy 
I grew up, made the blade my new toy 
Friends said boy with what you screwin' around I said 
Don't concern yourselves and just 
Gimme another blast 
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah 

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt 
Take it away, don't want no more 
Even if you say just one more 
I won't leave you alone, oh
I grew up, went into rehab 

You know the doctors never did me no good 
They said son you're gonna be a new man 
I said thank you very much and 
Can I borrow fifty bucks? 
Yeah, yeah. yeah, yeah 

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt 
Take it away, don't want no more 
Even if you say just one more 
I won't leave you alone 

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Straight to nowhere

I messed around as a little boy 
I grew up, made the blade my new toy 
Friends said boy with what you fuckin' around I said 
Oh my God and here we go again, 
Yeah, yeah. yeah, yeah 

Under the hill, with just a few notches on my belt 
Take it away, don't want no more, no more 
Even if you say just one more 
I won't leave you alone 

'Cause I'm goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line
Goin' down the steps on a white line 
Goin' down the steps on a white line 
Straight to nowhere

Follow me down
Sexual chocolate baby
