Beat me up
Beat me down
Mess me up
Beyond all recognition

For what it's worth
I'd do it again
With no consequence
I will do it again

Hard up, so hunt me down, down, down
Jump the gun bust a cap hit the ground

yo yo yo, word
My tendency's never returned
Recieved like a big fat jerk
I been silly, but not absurd
Cuz you know that's what I heard
Tell ya thoughts that's mostly pure
So everything's splended, sure
I'm just there to get injured

On the fence
The consequence
What do they know
About that

On the track
Ahead of the pack
What do they know
About that

I'm quite depressed
I'm quite a mess

Beat me up
Beat me down
Mess me up
Beyond all recognition

For what it's worth
I'd do it again
With no consequence
I will do it again

Hard up, so hunt me down, down, down
Jump the gun bust a cap hit the ground

yo yo yo, word
My tendency's never returned
Recieved like a big fat jerk
I been silly, but not absurd
Cuz you know that's what I heard
Tell ya thoughts that's mostly pure
So everything's splended, sure
I'm just there to get injured

On the fence
The consequence
What do they know
About that

On the track
Ahead of the pack
What do they know
About that

I'm quite depressed
I'm quite a mess

Hey, someone to stab in the back
Hey, someone to fall through the crack
Hey, someone to punch in the face
Hey, someone to fall through the crack

Written all over my face [repeat]

yo yo yo, word
My tendency's never returned
Recieved like a big fat jerk
I been silly, but not absurd
Cuz you know that's what I heard
Tell ya thoughts that's mostly pure
So everything's splended, sure
I'm just there to get injured

On the fence
The consequence
What do they know
About that

On the track
Ahead in the back
What do they know
About that

I'm quite depressed
I'm quite a mess

    General Commenti think it's bout a guy who's had a homosexual experience, probably been persecuted for it, yet he's still sayin "I'd do it again". It's basically a fuck you to all the ppl who've mistreated him.

    General CommentIts about someone who has been scarred so much by physical and verbal attacks that he becomes resilient, even developing a slight masochism, but is actually the best off of any of those around him. He's the only one doing it right.

    General CommentGunt toting hippy, Most of MSI's lyrics are satirical, so if by "mistreating women" you are reffering to the song "bitches" you are mistaken. MSI's merely poking fun at today's society. Plus the whole deal about backmasking, MSI did that once, it told you to clean your room and finish your homework. So I'd highly suggest getting into MSI.

    General CommentWHY HASNT THIS SONG GOT MORE COMMENTS???

    this is my favourite by far, I can listen to this one the most without going mental. To me its a big fuck you to consequences, they dont care if you fuck around with them, "I will do it again". The Hey, Someone bit makes me think that they're a scapegoat.
