  • Money and the power, money and the power

    Eye drops
    (Fuckin' with the killas)
    Teardrops
    Droptops
    (Fuckin' with the killas)
    Eye drops
    I was thinking to myself, maybe I should seek some help
    Maybe I should blame myself
    My mistake in stealth is going away
    Is going away, is going away

    Eye drops, teardrops
    Droptops, icebox

    This is a prepaid collect call from
    An inmate at Florida Correctional Institution
    This call is subject to recording and monitoring

    This, this, this like the situation and shit, you feel?
    Uh huh
    You ready right now?
    Yeah I'm ready, it's on speaker

    All the pain I went through
    Turned to a singer
    I put it all on my tattoos
    'Cause of where I came from
    If I ain't ever learned before
    Then this my pain
    (This call is subject to recording monitoring)
    Sleeping in institutions, I lost my baby
    If man ain't never move again, then it's gone wave me
    But I'm keeping a light up on my fire, then they took my baby
    A man of kind, is doing his time, but it's for no reason
    I mean the kind, that ride the pipe, something you free
    (This call has dropped, to add more credits, please press 1)
