Uh, I'm a death row inmate, my heart, it turns black
If you speak down on my name, you catch a blade inside your back
See me squeezing triggers up until the lead's on
And then I look, "Oh there he go-"
His motherfuckin' head's gone
It's a murder in the first degree, that's just what they're telling me
Go to jail without parole, say that that's a felony
Imma kill the music, put me in a penitentiary
They say Double is a murderer, well, allegedly
You can't lock me up, uh, I might just escape
I might grab a double-ought, and put a shot inside your face
I might put one in the lock, that's securing all the gates
Now a death row inmate commits jailbreak
But f*ck it though, flip the page, move on
Two worlds collide, tell me what it is you're really fighting for
Cause the system is broken, and half the governments corrupt
All the local, state, and federal agencies can get fucked
Have an idiot in office, with no clue of where he is
Had a man inside the White House who had twitter hissy fits, I am sick
Of the problems that our nation elects
I've got chip upon my shoulder and a weight upon my chest
So I'm a public enemy
Call the fucking CIA
Tell the AACoPD I'm committing GTA
Tell the Bureau of Investigations that I've got some evidence
I am heaven sent, rapping demonic, yet it's evident
Rappin' irrelevant
Finger to the president
Life has gotten better because I stopped being hesitant
Say what I want, give a f*ck 'bout how you feel
Speak my truth, how I'd like, shit, I'll always keep it real
I've got a question
Tell me why we all love Smith & Wesson
Children toting weapons, send a shot like it's a blessing
Murder in our cities, mothers crying, kids dead
We see children dead, bloodied, with a bullet in their head
Another thought
Why does everybody wanna get hurt
And why the f*ck are you offended over men wearing a skirt
It's absurd
And I really thought that shit would've changed, It stayed the same
Better start putting respect upon my name
'Cause the hatred that you preach, yeah, it's done
Put your hands up, 'fore it gets heated like the sun
Got another question, again, my last one
Tell me why all of the homophobes and racists preach their bullshit like a nun
It's hilarious
actually, it's sad
Did they get it from their mother
Did they get it from their dad
Did they learn it from society or say it 'cause they're sad
Did they want attention or acceptance
Good god, this shit is mad
That's a bad subject, maybe I should let it slide
I take pity on the people who spew hate where I reside
I take issues with you goofies, check my background
Took a step back for a minute, but I'm back now
Pull up, miss a couple shots, spin it back 'round
Everybody waiting, debating, did Double snap now
Snap, how
Pull up on you, Imma make you back down
Yeah, Imma make you back out, that's smack down, 'lil bitch
This is just the top of the list, you know. You can believe me when I tell you that I have a lot of shit left to say
And if you think that you might be next
You are
