  • You cocked back
    You thought you had it planned
    You thought you had your man
    He saw you coming, he ran when you tried to blast that man
    You missed him by inches, he sprinted
    Some of his boys on the corner was who your bullets entered
    Two of em pull through but one didn't, son's finished
    You took the life of him
    The part about it that's crazy, you was aight with him
    Tight with him, why was he in the way
    Why was he standing next to the enemy that specific day
    His style never hollas loud, stays reclusive
    Good dude, got that look like he always about to do shit
    Side of his mouth toothpick, one eyebrow raised
    Got into it with dude who still tried to live out his old wild out days
    They never had no probs
    Somehow they rubbed each other wrong like a bad massage
    These two different personalities had to collide
    Niggas could not aim and innocent niggas died
    You ask why, cause of a

    Accident murderer, act like you killed on purpose
    Liars brag, you put work in
    You ain't mean to murk him
    Your gun's a virgin
    Streets are full of em
    Read the bulletin
    Accident murderer
    You just an accident murderer

    We grew up doing graffiti
    Now hollow heads getting heated
    Seated in foreign cars, constantly getting weeded
    Proceeded to count profits
    I know they got on binoculars
    But fuck em all, we balling til they come lock us up
    Twenty to life; I'm clubbing, blowing twenty tonight
    We the mob, Bob Marley Marlin' all through the night
    Addicted to wealth, never cold turkey to war
    Snatch a tec off the shelf, live forever; that's Insh'Allah
    Memoirs of a rich nigga;
    Sweat suits, gold chains, old drug dealers
    New Benz, chrome rims are for show, killer
    You niggas accidental, shoppers in back of the limo
    Pay your tithes, stay alive, can't be dodging my clique
    Cut a check; I use your bitch for some bargaining chips
    In a hole, sell your home, nigga go sell your soul
    This forty-five in control
    God forgives and I don't

    Accident murderer, act like you killed on purpose
    Liars brag, you put work in
    You ain't mean to murk him
    Your gun's a virgin
    Streets are full of em
    Read the bulletin
    Accident murderer
    You just an accident murderer

    Accident murderer, accident murderer
    You just an accident murderer

    Yo, for my nigga that got killed, got hit up
    Vodka spills on the concrete
    Light a swisha, we miss ya
    And for that girl who never made it home, shot in the dome
    How they gon' kill that beautiful sista
    Violent adolescents, homicidal with weapons
    Not a lot of knowledge inside of they minds, that I'm guessing
    Tell me who you impressing
    Shooters I knew them when they was babies
    I used to test them
    Make em throw up they hands, choke em out playing wrestling
    Watch em grow to a man
    I see them now they repping
    But they cold-blooded, homie
    Wondering where the respect went
    Can't play with these little niggas, gangsta little niggas
    Can't hang with these little niggas, they killing, they reckless
    Wish I could build with him, but will he change really
    Some real killers
    I think of Wayne Perry
    Think of my nigga Drawz
    But you aren't a name to me you ain't mean to kill him

    Accident murderer, act like you killed on purpose
    Liars brag, you put work in
    You ain't mean to murk him
    Your gun's a virgin
    Streets are full of em
    Read the bulletin
    Accident murderer, act like you killed on purpose
