They're Killing Me Because I Have No One Else To Live For

-

My bloody death

Portrays my future

Me dead without a grave

That I can afford

That my family can afford for me

The heat of burning

I can only imagine

My soul feeling

In the corner of my hearing

Is all the sounds of my haters

Plotting

In this world

__where I am no one worth not

____killing

And all the while

This anger arises

In me

And I can't do anything

Ain't nobody to protect me

People like me need a bodyguard

So that they stay alive

__for their art

But I stay not good enough

At what I do best

For me to afford that

These motherfuckers want me dead

I'm running out of ways of avoidance

Just 'cause I gotta be down for my Krew

So that I don't be slashed

I cannot go back

To

Innocence
