This is self defense. x2
This ain't no threat man, ???
This is self defense
Ain't no tough guy talk,
we're just doing what we have to

[Verse 1 - Iriscience]
I think ya better let it go
You need attention? I send medical
Basically you're trying to harm me, you're crazy
Musically, I'm blazin'. Physically, I'm gracy
Triangle choke ya
And what the **** could have provoked ya?
