I don't care, they say my angel glow is subsiding I'm sliding outside of these high beams and I won't dare Try to mend this tear, I love I'm fading The good once there is just dying So I'm withering away and I'ma trigger when I spray And I'm attacking everybody till the feeling's gone! All my life I loved with people, so passive back then I thought I'd be above this evil, my tolerance level Then was up with doves and eagles Currently I've hit ground zero under bugs and beetles I'm tilted, inside my head's a lettuce but wilted Serotonin, dopamine, and norepinephrine I spilt it Could it be how many times I've been ran over and jilted? That makes me wanna totally detach from light and just kill shit I'll know when the pain is gone It's just a matter of time before my bosses win And I can feel the wrong Coming up through the cracks of my heart again I'm holding on, I'm going Straight into the mouths of makers Everything that keeps me calm was taken I'm letting go, I'm burning through, reserves are low Just pushing on these old restraints My time is up cause it's too late I'm about to blow up on anyone in my way My anger's set to show up, at any time today I'm about to blow up on anyone in my way My anger's set to show up, at any time today I am lookin' for some fire, yeah, putting on my gang attire Drooling and blood I can taste, so get the f*ck outta my face I'm a killer with a quick switch, yeah, all I ever really wanted was bliss Look at me wither to waste, so get the f*ck outta my face Find another one to get bent, yeah, and it ain't no stoppin' this Lovin' the thrill of the chase, so get the f*ck outta my face N9ne's a nigga with the sick-ness, yeah, and it ain't no blockin' this It doesn't matter the race, just get the f*ck out my face Going, withering away Going, withering away Going, withering away I gotta say, when my mother died, I really did inside And that's the other thing that did it Turning my crazy on a hundred babies gonna plummet Maybe I should be committed What am I supposed to do? Do I just keep faking? Fucking forsaking everything I am? Another pissed mother fucker with a fist and a plan Oh but you're making me do this I can scream while you stand there clueless If you're listening I've made up my mind Take another step and I'll snap this time! Something please save me, I'm losing myself I don't think I wanna stop it, but the feeling inside is nauseous I get really exhausted off it, gotta find a way to wash it lock it Profit nada so I got to drop it, ain't nobody in the cockpit Toss this lostness, people from the office boxes If you cross this boss live cautious Don't make me, don't make me repeat myself For your safety, because a pilly is beneath my belt But I don't wanna do anything bad to anybody But I'll never be perfect So I'mma say to the people that got a little evil comin' at you from me I think they deserve it Going, withering away Going, withering away Going, withering away (GONE) Straight, literally snappin' out My lady backin' out cause I'm becoming really mean and vicious Watching me wither, how can I give her Blood when I been so tainted by these bitches We are the arsenal Chemically imbalanced, completely disposable So butter my knuckles and taste it Another sick delinquent is wasted I don't forgive, I don't forget I haven't got time to regret Everybody else in the world can hate me Nobody but me can save me! Shit, Yates, hates, this, place If you're close enough to me to hit the switch You better never turn it on I get the feelin' I'm gonna be craving a Killin I gotta be real and the evil'll Fill up and sucker the middle man 'till he be GONE!
