Half Way Into The System


Whatever happens

I guess my mind's made up

Fuck this bein'-played-again crap

I am never coming back

Out the door

What a whore

Don't want more

I ain't seein' her no more

I could give a fuck

__that I lost the race

She can't be mine

I'm out of my mind

Out of bounds

Past the bound'ries

It was fun

This rememberin' stuff

But now I gotta go

Forget this mouth-fuck

Now I'm on my way

Back home to a home

That soon will not be

My home anymore

How insane

What a fucked up future

No one to score with

And soon nowhere to live

Might as well not even live

I'm tired of this shit

I want a future of a permanent

__resting home for my brains

Still, I get trapped

Having to lay an egg

But I can't

'Cause I ain't a bitch

I'm tired of bein' in the system

__only half way in

What am I supposed to do to be

__fully in?

Sleep on the streets?

Squat at my brother's?

Fuckin' got no choice

My friends won't give me a gun

Naw, fuck that

I can't even wear shoes at his house

I'll go back to my sister's


I don't get it!

Why is life so fucked up?!

Fuck my sister

I'm hittin' the campgrounds

I WILL be a fuckin' homeless then

Sleep in a van for as long as it takes

__to get me into permanent housing!

It's amazing how prejudice

The system is

Why should I be homeless

Just to get an apartment?!

Well, if that's what they want

I WILL be fucking homeless!
