  • Yeah, uh
    Bloody ink on my pad spelled "suicide"
    Michael Jackson even passed 'cause you scrutinized
    Fuck Illuminati lies, say I'm lucified
    Baptized in the gutter, motherfucker you decide
    'Cause the ride come with doors that be suicide?
    Or the thighs on my whores, they be super-sized?
    Good and bad having wars, nigga, choose a side
    Now all hail to the Lord like you do to God
    Who am I? Lord Flacko
    Painting vivid pictures, call me Basquiat Picasso
    Capo Head Huncho, now my following's colossal
    Ain't no boxer, Pacquiao, but got the chopper todo caso
    It's like you heard God spoke
    I've seen the ghetto gospel
    The choir like my reefer
    And the preacher got my eyes low
    Sister Mary Jane could make me see from singing high notes
    The Bible or the rifle
    Good night, folks

    Bloody ink on my pen spelled "suicide"
    Kurt Cobain even died 'cause you scrutinize
    It's a fine line between truth and lies
    Jesus Christ never lied, still was crucified
    That's why I never judge another nigga
    Life's a bitch, but that bitch in love with other niggas
    Three to a bed, sheets, no covers, nigga
    Dirty kitchen, no supper in the cupboards, nigga
    Sucker niggas, what's up with niggas?
    So my new attitude is like "Fuck them niggas!"
    I grew up with niggas but don't fuck with niggas
    I don't trust them niggas, ain't got no love for niggas
    Had the gold grills shining like them southern niggas
    Kept it trilla, now the whole world fuckin' with us
    Meanwhile you treated all of us like other niggas
    And now your world is in my palm, take cover, niggas

    I shall ever fall, Lord, pick me up
    Ever since a baby, two twos and sippy cups
    Ever since them diapers and my zip-me-ups
    Now, I'm walking on my own, y'all, wish me luck

    Where do we lie?
    Tell me where do we stand?
    Where do we go?
    It's all part of the plan

    Where do we lie?
    Tell me where do we stand?
    Where do we go?
    It's all part of the plan Writer/s: Brian Joseph Burton, Rakim Mayers
