I don't want to go to school, I don't need no education
I don't want to be like you, I don't want to save the nation
I just want to live my life, everyday a celebration
One day I'ma leave this world, I'm waiting for the revelation

I want to kill myself! I'm still debating
In front of a baptist church, masturbating
Praying to Satan, think I'm crazy cause I smoke crack
live on in a two-family flat? (**** it)
Tired of gettin hit in the face with a broom
My moms on her period, my dad's in my room (Daddy no!)
I got ten rocks and I need to get out
I told him in five minutes, out my own damn mouth (Moms smoke crack)
My poor grandmother, God bless her soul
The ***** got AIDS (aww) she just waiting to die of a cold
There's three things that keep me from being a Nazi
I'm black, a ***, and my dad's Liberace

[Kon Artis]
No matter how bad the beating, I went to school cheating
My dad whooped my *** at a PTA meeting
Stick with school I had to have nuts just to do it
Got bored and became truant
When I had the gall to go I just couldn't do it
I was lured into corners by the peer pressure ****
How would you feel if you was held by the tip of a barrel
Getting threatened to get your skin ripped to bone marrow
Bet suburban kids never got rushed for their apparel
like me, outcast, last in class
First to leave, when the teacher called on me
Best believe I had somethin up my sleeve

I've been praised and labeled as crazed
My mother was unable to raise me, full of crazy rage
An angry teenager, nothing can change me back
Gangsta rap made me act like a maniac
I was boosting, so influenced by music I used it
as an excuse to do ****, ooh I was stupid
No one can tell me nothing hip-hop overwhelmed me
to the point where it had me in a whole another realm
It was like isolating myself was healthy
It felt like we was on welfare but wealthy
Compelled me to excel when school it failed me
Expelled me and when the principal would tell me
I was nothing, and I wouldn't amount to ****
I made my first million and counted it
Now look at, a ****ing drop-out that quits
Stupid as ****, rich as ****, and proud of it
That's why


[Swifty McVay]
I was raised with a rifle and mask
Steadily beating my psychiatrist *** just for asking about my past
(*****) I was never on that punk ****, ****ing around
can get yo' beloved abducted, smothered in blood quick
You couldn't pay Swift to give a ****
Was crazy like my father, it must of been poison in that *****'s nut
Far as probation, **** peeing in cups
I violate at any time, let 'em see the blunt
I grew up steadily masturbating inside of cells
Young as hell, having conversations with myself
You could tell I wasn't lenient, a disobedient
Lynched and slapped teachers, ***** I'm not reading it
You don't know what dos go through, a little *****
Sipping liquor with my old dude, what the **** you goin' do?
I'm quick to curse you, I told my mother that I'ma hurt you
if you ever again mention a curfew

Look, my family ignored me and I don't like that
They don't even listen when I tell them I'll be right back
(Yeah whatever) This nice beautiful house ma, it don't mean ****
Cause you know daddy's a drunk and he don't clean ****
And yesterday he hit me like a grown ****ing man
I couldn't stand up to him, I just ducked and ran
I'm sick of this, I wish on Christmas
that I can get a loaded four-fifth and put a ****ing end to this
(**** it) I got no friends and I can't get a *****
Only thing I have is dirty magazines and sticky fingertips
Nothing to smile about, I'm about to lose my mind
Got me an automatic nine, now I'm balling out

Wait 'til school's over, pu-pil are people to shoot through
Kids going cuckoo, with a two-two
Since my fame is this new dude, in this high school
Losing his noodle learn that people don't like you
The football jocks is, spitting on him
Popular kids in school is now picking on him
Burn out youngsta *****s now hitting on him
And his teacher in his English class keep flipping on him
And now he's grounded with no allowances
for drinking forty ounces, cause he was caught by his counselors
And why the **** I gotta ride the bench coach?
Already got expelled for wearing a trench coat
All I ever seen is (violence, violence)
Told me to keep silent, stepped back in my eyelids
It's apparent that my parents weren't parents at all
That's why I blew out my brains and murdered you all
