"Toilet Tisha" as written by and Andre Benjamin David Sheats....
Have you heard the news today
They say a little 14 year old little girl had a baby on the way
Too much for her little mind to bare
And that type of news to her mama she cannot spare

Toilet Tisha, damn we miss ya
Toilet Tisha is the issue
Damn we miss ya, Toilet Tisha
Damn we miss ya

Don't go away
Don't you dare go away from me girl I can help you
Don't go away dont you dare leave me
Don't go away, away
Don't go away

Five thousand, one hundred ten days
Is a short period of time a mere fourteen years
On this precious mother earth, you see Tisha had issues
And her decision making skills were still in it's early stages
You know what I'm talking about
Therefore she could not properly handle a blessing in which
She thought to be an obstacle in her path to adulthood
Pause, just like a brother with a thousand pauses
Should I, shouldn't I, I cant, I have to, mama will never see me the same
Daddy and Big Mama I know all of them gonna be ashamed of me
Are just a few thoughts racing through her cranium
As she sits on top of the pale,
Cold porcelain seat in the rear of the house
The unthinkable moments away from becoming reality, sadly with no clue
And no way of expressing her feeling
To her mam or anybody else in her life
Tisha done came to the crossroads and now she got to choose
Fatality, fatality, fatality, fatality

    General Commentas one can tell from the lyrics, it's about a teenage mother-to-be contemplating suicide.

    General CommentMore than contemplating. This song is obviously a reflection of the girl after she already killed herself.

    General CommentThis song is not about suicide in my opinion. Why would that even make sense? I think what it's really about is a girl who chooses to perform her own coathanger abortion on the toilet, but dies in the process. The fatality she chooses is that of her baby, but she ends up dying too. I think the song has a lot more social meaning in this interpretation. There are lots of suicide songs already written,but not many addressing the complex issues of abortion, especially as it relates to the black teenage mothers in america.
