  • Mom?
    What's the matter, baby?
    He did it again, he hit me
    He did what? calm down
    I'm gone kill him
    Listen to me
    I'm gone kill him, I know I'm going to
    Listen, get your stuff and come home
    I can't come home, I'm gone kill him, I'm gone do it

    I'm sitting contemplating is it worth, should I take it
    Take that shot and change my life
    Get that glock and take his life
    Hospitals and bloody noses
    This would end all, I suppose that I could leave
    Knowing I can't leave
    So it's either him or me
    Cause he gone kill me if I stay, I know
    Gone kill me, he can't change, I know
    From the first time that he did it,
    Made a promise that he'd quit it, shh
    God, it's so much work
    Don't wanna end up in a hearse
    I guess I gotta do it first
    I guess I gotta do it first

    I can't go back now, back now I'm running
    Away from those cops, I hear them coming
    And if they catch me, I still ain't sorry
    If that was wrong just
    Call me guilty
    Cause if you knew what he did to me
    I know I would get your sympathy
    So if they catch me, I still ain't sorry
    Just lock me up and call me guilty

    I did it, pulled the trigger
    It wasn't so hard, go figure
    Before I did it, I said
    This was for all the blood I shed
    For all the women who go through this ish
    Can't think of what to do, this ish
    Done torn them up inside and out
    Whose still trying to get out
    He gone kill if you stay, I know
    I been through this, so yes, I know
    I know he promised that he'd quit it
    If you believed him girl, forget it sh
    You know I'm right
    Don't wanna see him take a life
    And it will only just get worse
    That's why I had to do it first


    It's so much blood I grabbed my stuff
    But before I could leave, the cops busted in
    (You have the right to remain silent)
    No I have the right to stay alive
    Guess what?, I'd do it again
    He would have killed me before I killed him
    It would have been him up in this building
    It would have been him faking tears but what's funny is I'm the one standing here
