  • I remember I had walked home that day
    Content with all my misery
    Told my self it'd get better, no clue what there was next to me
    Remember there was people, walkin', talkin' in the distance
    I was dressed for winter weather
    But the summer rays were kissing me
    I, I was lost

    So I took a different path, in the distance he awaited me
    Had no weapon, I'm guessing his hands were just enough for me
    Was no question, I'm guessing he laughed just at the sight of me
    I was lost

    I remember I had walked home that day
    Content with all my misery
    Told my self it'd get better, no clue what there was next to me
    Remember there was people, walkin', talkin' in the distance
    I was dressed for winter weather
    But the summer rays were kissing me
    I, I was lost

    And there he was, his presence was alarming
    As he approaches casual, we talk 'bout self-harming
    He told me "kid, you shouldn't be walkin' on your own"
    He smiled and laughed, and pat my back
    He said, "how far are you from home?"
    I said, "maybe 30 minutes"
    His frequency distorted quick, I seen it in his image
    I should've run right fucking there, I-

    You ever woke up on a train track
    With no motherfuckin' clothes on?
    Death before your eyes, you prayin' to God, but ain't no response
    Trying to scream for hope, just a shoulder that you can lean on
    But ain't nobody coming, so you scream on
    And scream on and scream on
    While this evil fuck laugh at you?
    Train getting closer, you still surprised that he battered you
    Tears falling harder and harder, minutes get minuscule
    Could've had a son or a daughter, now what you finna do?
    You finna die here on this train track
    'Cause clearly after death, ain't no way you can find your way back
    Thinking 'bout your previous memories, going way back
    All them fucking dreams 'bout the diamond chain and the Maybach
    Now your time finally up
    Ask yourself the final question, is you going down or up?
    Recollectin' all the moments that you never gave a fuck
    Now it's here, death has now arrived, time's finally up Writer/s: Jahseh Onfroy, Johnathan Carter Cunningham
