lyrics

VERSE 1

Catch me in the library
studying, bloody prints
all over the pages.
Ran straight from grade eight
where niggas sharpen their blades
if they see Southside niggas
stroll leisurely to history.
Caught me in the hallway.
Six of em, with gritted teeth.
Iverson Jerseys, Air Forces,
and fitteds…
Surrounded as I clutched
“Captain Underpants” in my gripped fist.
Just a nerdy kid
into professional wrestling,
Metroid, and Batman.
Guess I should’ve prepped for this.
First week here,
I saw some girl get stabbed.
Blood all over the stairway,
surrounded by laughter
of preteens nonplussed
by death and tragedy.
My real education
started at the scene.
Let that set the tone,
the bottom of expensive Nikes
crashing ‘gainst my dome
in the halls during class,
but I guess no one was home.
I navigate the mess of legs and feet.
Made it out, and ran like
the Ice Cream man was down the street.
Didn’t stop til I got to library
lookin all tore down…
Busted lip, imprints
of Air Forces on my First Down.
Librarian too busy on eHarmony
to notice.
Adrenaline got me feeling like
I’m floating.
But, fuck… I dropped
my Captain Underpants book, and I know they got it.
Next period, I go to math class,
and I spot it.
This nigga dangles it in front of me,
and chucks it in the trash,
says “dig it out, pussy”…
That’s when I snapped.
Blacked out.
All I remember is swinging
thinking about all the moments
that led to this, it was vicious…
The bullies, the torment, used condoms
stuffed into my locker,
suicide notes started and never finished,
my cries getting dismissed.
All of it was coming out in
each closed fist,
colliding like asteroids
against this nigga's face.
When I came to,
I saw the nigga terrified,
with a scar from his eye
to his chin,
in a puddle of his piss.
