"How Many Times?" as written by Joseph Bruce, Joseph Utsler and Mike E. Clark....
How Many Times?

How many times will I ask myself why, how many times?
How many times will I ask myself why, how many times will I cry? (2x)

How many times will you honk your horn and say fuck you?
Now what the fuck does that do?
Ya feel better now? I didn't let ya pass
How 'bout I stop my car, and beat your fuckin' ass?
How many times will my neighbor beat his wife?
Somewhere in that house there's a butcher knife
Fuckin' drunk, swingin' his fists about
Why don't she wait till he sleeps then take him out
How many times will I sit in a hot car?
Traffic jam, been sittin' for a fuckin' hour
Must be an accident, I hope nobody died
Finally get there, and the crash is on the other side
The gawkers roll and they creep slow
Hoping they can see a mangled body show
Some park, and stand there and watch it all
With their kids, they point, and fuckin stare (and just look)
I remember one time I was pulled over
Handcuffed, the cop was like, show's over
People watching, hoping that he shoots me
I just wanted to choke the fucking head

How many times will I ask myself why, how many times?
How many times will I ask myself why, how many times will I cry?

How many times will I wait in a line?
It's three-thirty, I fuckin' got here at nine
I'm finally up to the front, can't wait another minute
Why am I here? to pay a fucking parking ticket
The lady at the counter acts like a fuckin bitch
No smiles, no help, you're just a piece of shit
I'm gettin' pissed, calm down, fuck it, forget it
Back to my car, and there it is, another ticket
How many times will a crackhead smoke crack
And ask me for some money 'cause he wants crack
Give him money, again, he's coming back
Walk away, and here's another, "Gimme some crack"
How many time will a kid give a dirty look?
A little punk-ass bitch tryin to be a crook
I wrote the book, I was out robbin' liquor stores
When you were just a nut stain in your momma's drawers

How many times will you steal my car stereo?
It don't even work, ya feel like a bitch, don't you?
I vacuum all the fuckin' glass off from my seat
I sit down, and got a piece stuck in my butt cheek
How many times did I walk in, and just sit?
And have to listen, and learn all this bullshit
Learnin' history and science, fuckin' wait
Knowin' that, will that put food on my plate?
Yeah, can I walk into McDonald's, up to the counter
And tell 'em you can make limestone from gunpowder
Will they give me a cheeseburger if I know that shit?
Fuck no, fuck you, and shut your fuckin' lip
How many times will a judge decide my fate?
Who is he? A bitch, nothing great
He takes shits, and fucks his old floppy wife
Plays with his balls and judges my life!

"And who the fuck is he?
He judges my life"

    General CommentOne of my all time favorite songs. It's saying how there's so many people in this world that fuck with you. What's the point of school? Who is a judge to decide your fate? People fuck with your life. And it's not right. Damn, this is such a good song I got shit racin' through my head. I can't even explan it right. Oh well.. -Mal-

    General CommentThis is basically saying that people should just live their lives without having to deal with all of everyone else's shit. Like the whole thing with the judge that doesn't even know him, etc. This is a really good song..

    General CommentBasically "How many times will things not break my way how many times do I have to get shit on?" I think a lot of people could relate if they'd give ICP a chance.

    General Commenteverything seems to make sense, it seems to be about stupid people that affect everyone else even if everyone else doesnt care such as the people gawking at the accident making other people late, and the judge, or the lady at the counter, and then getting another ticket after dealing with the lady at the counter, etc.

    I'm curious though, i don't know much about icp and I was wondering about the verse about him getting pulled over. Is that based on real events that he's gone through? I'm guessing that he's been in trouble with the law because he seems to be really mad about that judge, and im also thinking that when he was pulled over that this was the reason he was seeing the judge.

    can someone enlighten me?

    General CommentI love this line "How many time will a kid give a dirty look? A little punk-ass bitch tryin to be a crook"
    It just reminds me of so many people... ICP is good, people just don't like them cause they are way different and have the "Fuck The World" outlook on life, anyone with that mindset likes ICP. Especially this song.

    General CommentNo this song isn't about how "people fuck with you" It's about how fucked up our society here in the US is, all the events are like this...
    1. Road rage and violence.
    2. Getting beaten to the point of killing.
    3. Curiousity about accidents on the other road.
    4. Criminal's all deserve death.
    5. Paying fucked up bills and getting more.
    6. Crackhead's begging for money for crack.
    7. Wangsters who are fake in all that they do.
    8. Stealing from people who cant do anything about, the poor.
    9. Going to school to learn stuff that wont help you.
    10. Being sentenced to death by the judge who doesn't know who you are, or why you did what you did.

    These situations are describing a fucked up society and how Violent J just thinks it's all so fucked up how everyone thinks it's all normal and just fine and "it just happens"
