"Right Back" as written by Anthony Joe Kent, Mark A. Williams, Derryl Howard, Ebony Williams and Maurice Wilson....
Sleepin' by yourself at night can make you feel alone
Your girlfriend said so but I don't really know
That don't mean we fucked around that night last week when you left town

I was tweakin' by myself one night that's when I wrote this tune
Didn't have no need for that bed in my hotel room
Sometimes right now since I've left the pen
Feels like I'm right back there again

Sometimes I pray, waiting waiting for some bright holiday
So I bought myself a gun and I'm right back, right back where I'm from

Sleepin' by yourself at night can make you feel alone
My girlfriend said so, she's a little ho
That don't mean I fuck around, I like to keep that higher ground

Sometimes I pray, waiting waiting for some bright holiday
So I bought myself a gun and I'm right back, right back where I'm from
Oh don't tease me, don't tease me, don't tease
Sometimes I pray, waiting waiting for some bright holiday
So I bought myself a gun and I'm right back, right back where I'm from

    General Commentfatrick your stupid. I agree not all their material is on addiction, but this song is obviously about addiction. You just took a very small part of the song and formed a gay generalized opinion from there" felt like he was in the pen cuz he couldn't fuck" dont be dumb that shit don't feel like the pen. the pen feels like waking up with your chest jumping out of your skin in a cold sweat with diahrrea and needing a blast to make you feel normal! Then you pray for a bright holiday like a break or vacation from this nightmare. But, then he buys a hit "gun" metaphorical for its power and he's next morning he's right back, right back where he's from!!!!! (your officially schooled) ho

    My InterpretationTo me it sounds like hes feeling alone.
    Sounds like lyrics that root from suicidal thoughts and relation ship problems.
    Very strong, breif, dark, beautiful lyircs :) RIP

    General Commenti think he is trying to chase the ultimate high but can never get there- it's why people become addicts. Wicked song!

    General CommentSigh...he is saying that his girls cheating ways, and his attempt to keep the higher ground and give in and sleep with the girl that is available is making him feel like he is RIGHT BACK in Jail.

    so that line
    "you know right now since I left the pen,
    Feels like I right back there again."
