  • Remember one time, dawg, this fiend owed the boss
    Put Peanut Butter on her pussy, let his pits lick it off
    Back when I was living on Flanders
    Seen another dope fiend beat another with a hammer
    Remember at the park, seen a nigga at a payphone
    Got rocked in his dome, momma picked me up and ran home
    Was like fucking seven years old
    When I first seen a fiend try to light a rock off the stove
    Damn near burned his top lip off, so my mind ticked off
    Desensitized to a lotta things, mind would drift off
    Wish it was what I seen on tv, I snapped outta that
    Unc' beating on my auntie
    Gunshots outside was sorta like fireworks
    We know they ain't fireworks, its December 21'st
    Cold winter with a kerosene heater on the couch so cold
    Can't take off your sneakers

    And it's torture
    Look in my mind and see the horrors
    All the shit that I've seen
    Nigga, it's torture
    Look in my mind and see the horrors
    All the shit that I've seen
    Nigga, it's torture
    Look in my mind and see the horrors
    All the shit that I've seen

    I feel like a prisoner of war
    Reacting sporadically to what the mind absorb
    Probably need a shrink, can't get a wink
    So I smoke a lot of kush and pop a Xanax to sleep
    Close my eyes, look up, fiend said 1 for 8
    Can tell that I scared him by the look on my face
    Reached in my pocket served him nervous as a surgeon
    Can't believe where I'm at 'pose be writin' verses
    Heard a knock at the do', 'Nother fiend wanted fo'
    Gave him what he came for, told him go to the sto'
    Lemme get a box a box of Swishers, Faygo Cola
    Gave his ass another stone now guess what it's over
    He ain't come back, before I could look back
    I heard the wood on the door crack, and they yelling police
    With this work up in my jeans man this a bad dream

    And it's torture
    Look in my mind and see the horrors
    All the shit that I've seen
    Nigga, it's torture
    Look in my mind and see the horrors
    All the shit that I've seen
    Nigga, it's torture
    Look in my mind and see the horrors
    All the shit that I've seen Writer/s: Daniel Sewell, Gene Vandenostende, Henrik Eugeen Debruyn, Michael Woodrow Sr Jackson
