I sit alone in my four-cornered room staring at candles
Let me drop some **** like this here, real smooth
At night I can't sleep, I toss and turn
Four walls just starin' at a *****
My mother's always stressin' I ain't livin' right
See, everytime my eyes close
It's somebody watchin' the Ak'
I can see him when I'm deep in the covers
He owns a black hat like I own
Some might say, Take a chill, be
I'm poppin' in the clip when the wind blows
Investigatin' the joint for traps
I'm starin' at the woman on the corner

Everybody know me, it's like I'm a movie star
I feel I'm being tailed by the same sucker's head lights
Or is it that ***** last week that I shot?
Thought he had 'caine but it was Gold Medal Flour
Ain't no use to me lyin', I was scareder than a ************
If it's goin' down let's get this **** over with
I got my hand on the **********in' trigger
Three black, crippled and crazy senior citizens
I take my boys everywhere I go, because I'm paranoid
My mind is playin' tricks on me
Day by day it's more impossible to cope
Can't keep a steady hand because I'm nervous
Prayin' for forgiveness
I know the Lord is lookin' at me
I often drift while I drive
Bang and get it over with
I got a little boy to look after
I had a woman down with me
She helped me out in this ****
Now she's back with her mother
Now I'm feelin' lonely

Me and Geto Boys are trick-or-treatin'
Till an old man got behind our ***
Took a look back, and he was right before our face
So I swung and hit the ***** in his mouth
But this was no ordinary *****
Now, that's the ***** I'd be seein in my sleep
Droppin' them **********in' be 's on him
Then he disappeared and my boys disappeared, too
It wasn't even close to Halloween
My hands were all bloody, from punchin' on the concrete
My mind is playin' tricks on me
