    (D.A. got that dope)

    I turn the news on when I smell death in the air
    I prove you wrong, I made it out of here
    I don't belong, I see my past everywhere
    Don't stand too close to me, eternal PTSD
    I got a war zone inside of my head
    I made it on my own, they said I'd be in jail or dead
    I've seen my brothers fall, over and over again
    Don't stand too close to me, I got PTSD

    I was hearing bangs like Chief Keef
    Always yelling names that's deceased
    I go off my mind and my instinct
    Shootin' at the same time, we was in sync
    On the same thing, tryna repeat
    We was in them whips, right back on the enemies
    Stuffed on my last hit, I was in the middle seat
    Fuck it, out the sunroof, brodie got a quick release
    And we in a car real fast, fuck police
    Shots fired back but his ass in the street
    When I bought a forty, showed Brittany and Tiffany
    Knowing if they call, it ain't shit they can't get from me
    Lot of warfare 17 had a 50 piece
    Flexed on niggas so you know they wanna kill a G (royalty)
    Posted in the hood with some Bentley keys (loyalty)
    Roc died, showed 'em what it really mean
    I can't sleep 'cause it's a war zone in my head
    My killas good, they know I'm hands on with the bread
    A million dollars ahead, I'm still angry and seeing red
    How the fuck I'm 'posed to have fun? All my niggas dead

    I turn the news on when I smell death in the air
    I prove you wrong, I made it out of here
    I don't belong, I see my past everywhere
    Don't stand too close to me, eternal PTSD
    I got a war zone inside of my head
    I made it on my own, they said I'd be in jail or dead
    I've seen my brothers fall, over and over again
    Don't stand too close to me, I got PTSD

    Used to run home from the train stop
    Runnin' so fast dodgin' raindrops
    'Member got robbed at the park once
    'Member thinkin' that that bitch probably ain't caught
    'Member I was with my mama one time, seen a nigga through the glass
    Hit a nigga with a bankshot
    Point blank, head hanging off his tank top
    Walked off, we drove off, went to GameStop (skrrt)
    Quiet ride there, picked up San Andreas
    Certain things we ain't talk about, mama, we just prayed off
    We seen it all, don't get involved
    Carry the weight of the world like a shawl
    Conceal and revealing to people in court
    I still can feel it, I know that the world is evil
    In case you thought a nigga forgot it
    When my homie was bleeding out, another homie went in his pockets
    Please do not run up on me, not even as fans
    Niggas get fanned down on the Dan Ryan
    I'm flyin', I'm scary as hell, I need me a Xan, ah

    The days seem long as life gets shorter
    We know sex, drugs, money, all in that order
    Ain't no structure, no peace, we've lost our order
    Leaving me with anxiety, fucking up my sobriety (Lil Uzi Vert, yeah)

    It's a war zone layin' inside my head
    I still think about all my niggas that's dead
    I'm too paranoid, yeah, I know you heard what I said
    I'm too paranoid, I make sure all my opps they bled
    Drainin' all my energy, no, I cannot sleep, uh-huh
    I'm affected by the streets, no appetite, I can't eat
    I only see red when I see, I think it's my PTSD (gang)
    I think it's my PTSD (whoa), I think it's my PTSD, yeah
