(do you ever have bad dreams? All I have is bad dreams)
I knew a man with a son
Who bought him a gun
And learned shorty just how to use it
Taught him hunting and skinning
Right from the beginning
Built himself a mighty fine killer
But shorty got picked on
Beat on and kicked on
And all his classmates want to punk him
So with tears in his eye
He catch him in a ride
And told his old man he went hunting
And he felt so free
Like his destiny
Lay somewhere out on the horizon
His heart went cold
He felt a hundred years old
And started pulling back on the trigger

I think I'm gonna die today
And everyone who hurt me's gonna pay
How could such a short time be so long
How could such a young life go so wrong

(what's it gonna take for you to really make it in life?)
See me
Hear me
But don't touch me
You should fear me
Lived your life dearly
'Cause I'm seriously disturbed
That's my word
Straight to my mother
Wayne, my brother
Who found another one to play sucker
'Cause I ain't the one
Who put shade in your sun
And took all your shine
Watch me get mine
Feel my love burn
Me for my sins
Watch the world turn
The saga begins
Losses and wins
Angels and sins
Dancin' on top
Ahead of the pit
Don't know where I'm going
But I know where I've been
I can't hear a sound
I clapped a full round
I came to get down
I came to get dirty
I came to get even

Momma, don't cry
Please, momma, don't cry
Momma, don't cry
You did nothing wrong

    General CommentThis is one of the most depressing songs I've ever heard... it's actually pretty good, too.

    General CommentThis is one hell of a song. It brings up emotions in you. This song is a meaning for how kids pick on eachother and then it results in suicide or a school-shooting. The song goes on to explain a possible experiance the singer had.

    General CommentEverytime i hear this song i think hes talkin about columbine or other related school shootings. hes decribing how it all goes down in the kids head and in acton. thats what sets everlast apart from other artist, he really feels the situtation out and matchs a powerful unique genre-mixed beat to go with it. fuckin flawless
