Intro 02:15
If you give love, it grows up to have compassion. If you give hate, it grows up to be resentful. It’s harder to love than to hate That’s why the world is filled with hate They’d rather share the hate than share the love They’d rather be ignorant than understand They'd rather push people out to the cold, hard streets Take it from me, I’m a nobody Running on fumes, my fuel source be stress I'm trynna turn it around, yeah my life's a mess All I want is peace, fuck the literal beef I'm so weak, but fuck it, I'll do whatever to compete Y'all take a look at the cover, assume I ain't deep What you expect? I ain't a sheep plus looks decieve Besides, y’all hypocrites stay on the shallow side I pathom, do people want dumb music that’s live I tried every style to get them to listen to my rhymes I’m basically like Madonna in her 80’s prime I'm like, what you want me to be? stupid and rude It seems y'all ostracize me whenever I act a fool Now this fool's a menace, y'all can't stop eyeing me Actively plotting to take me out of society I've been real all my life and y'all started to take notice When you quote this in the future, say a genius wrote it Yeah… They don’t realize what the hate does to you… So much hate and you can’t even see the light Things start to get cloudy, things start to get dim Then your demon within breaks free from the chains And they’ll never realize The cycle continues

Hard AF Life 03:26
Yeah You wanna piece of me? I can do this all day you know? You can’t ever take me down And that’s a fact I live a hard as fuck life, stressin’ me out I’ve got wear on me but I must show no doubt For it’s a hard as fuck life, I gotta be strong I gotta show the world that I belong I live a hard as fuck life, stressin’ me out I’ve got wear on me but I must show no doubt For it’s a hard as fuck life, I gotta be strong I gotta show the world that I belong You ever wonder if every day is just the same Similar to the point where it’s simply plain To the point where it causes you pain just to live I know, I’ve been prayin’ for a reason to exist I’ve seen cops get away scott free I’ve found myself locked in a cell for eternity I’ve got every person hatin’ my guts, can’t get bucks Two middle fingers in the air as I give no fucks I’ve always been a target, everybody aimin’ at me Trynna take away my life so they can get the bounty Money matters more than anything, it’s been this way My viewpoints are realistic, that’s why I’m afraid I’ve been tortured and scarred and it hasn’t stopped thus far Tryna find a way out through these lyrical bars They wanna keep the pressure and it’s just fucked up I’m doomed to live this life until I turn to dust I live a hard as fuck life, stressin’ me out I’ve got wear on me but I must show no doubt For it’s a hard as fuck life, I gotta be strong I gotta show the world that I belong I live a hard as fuck life, stressin’ me out I’ve got wear on me but I must show no doubt For it’s a hard as fuck life, I gotta be strong I gotta show the world that I belong My circle be tight like it’s supposed to Pop out and claim to be friends, I don’t know you Especially when you turn on me the second things go wrong Why do I always hear the same old song I get ganged up a lot and they always play the victim They got power so of course the whole mob will listen To their sob stories about T. Karras did this and that There is no evidence yet they still react I must of did somethin’ to deserve this shit Simple fact that I exist leaves people pissed I’m drained to the point where I can’t even function I’ve been runnin’ for so long and no I ain’t bluffin’ This shit in my life happens everyday I’m supposed to be scared but no, I ain’t afraid Come at me if you think you can bring me down I can fight you chip for chip, and pound for pound I live a hard as fuck life, stressin’ me out I’ve got wear on me but I must show no doubt For it’s a hard as fuck life, I gotta be strong I gotta show the world that I belong I live a hard as fuck life, stressin’ me out I’ve got wear on me but I must show no doubt For it’s a hard as fuck life, I gotta be strong I gotta show the world that I belong And that's the end of the song And that's the end of the song And that's the end of the song And that's the end of the song That's the end of the song That's the end of the song So long

5150 02:50
5150 Everything is dark, even the sky 5150 I'll never get out, why won't they leave me alone 5150 Oh my god, oh no, don't let them take me in there 5150 I'll never get out, oh god, what will happen to me now I’m crazy and insane, deranged in the membrane Tortured everyday, I’m in mental pain I try my best to function but still I’m mental They keep sayin’ my words are incomprehensible I’ve been in 5150 a huge number of times To the point where I can understand Eazy-E’s mind I take pills everyday, they wanna keep me numb Afraid of my intelligence, they wanna keep me dumb What you think as crazy, I think of as sane They want money for mental health, I’m not payin’ I should have this for free, not be trapped forever In a 5150 because I’m such a terror I put a smile on my face, they run away in fear They see me as suspicious cause I shed them tears Now you know why I drink liquor everyday I need to kill the brain cells with the Hennesy It ain’t fun 5150 Mental illness is highly stigmatized 5150 Stigma literally means dishonor and disgrace 5150 Would you prefer to say that you couldn't come because you had a kidney stone 5150 Or that you were depressed or suicidal Anybody can say your crazy if you look at them funny Even though they know that you’re not a dummy You can order pills off the dark side of the internet Get high as fuck and you’d still get ahead You could believe conspiracies and people could die Yet an average person can get institutionalized I realize the flaws in the mental health system They pretend to care when they don’t even listen They see you as nothin’ than a 6-figure check To someone like me, that’s severe disrespect To say there’s no future for you, what the fuck is that? Especially when I’m trynna get my life on track Is this what we have come down to? Jailin’ people who dare defy their rule And they're going to scrap the Miranda rights as well I know the real crazy people, it’s the devils from hell 5150 We walk them to prison, lock them away 5150 Mental illness has a very high tradition 5150 Mental illness is something delusional 5150 This is a mentally ill person, this must be dangerous Yo, stop the stigmatism Stop the discrimination And stop the hate That's all I ask Peace

I’ll squash any competition that comes my way I’ll come at anybody who has somethin’ to say I’m tired of all the constant negativity If you wanna play, come on, I ain’t fuckin’ playin’ That’s what I’m sayin’ I was born with the gift and the curse at the same time Got too much intelligence, I should of been born blind My life’s a crime, that’s what everybody’s tellin’ me I’m trapped in isolation, man I wish I were free But that’s just a dream, it’s impossible to explain How my aspiration can cause me a lot of pain It just sucks how my vision makes me too ambitious They notice somethin’s wrong so they look at me suspicious I haven’t had a break from this onslaught of hate Try as much as I can but there’s so much I can take Even my family be putin’ me down, it’s absurd Can’t trust anybody in this whole damned world How much can they put me down, I’m at my limits I’m prayin’ to God, when will he give me forgiveness I just want to be happy, just like everyone else Alas, how can I be happy when I’m stuck in hell Story of my life I’ll squash any competition that comes my way I’ll come at anybody who has somethin’ to say I’m tired of all the constant negativity If you wanna play, come on, I ain’t fuckin’ playin’ That’s what I’m sayin’ All this doubt and insecurity surrounds my life Makes me wonder if I can do anything right I’ve always wanted to live without any restrictions Just prove to the world that I don’t match their depictions How many times must you do this, I’m gettin’ tired of it It’s like you’re cockblockin’ me, I can’t handle this shit I’m trynna live my life legit but you don’t wanna see me shine All the discrimination, It’s like y’all wanna make me blind I’ve handled pressure the likes of which y’all never seen Changed me, rearranged me to incredible extremes Court took everything away, my sanity, my friends My life, my opportunities, when will this end I’m ready to get it all back by any means necessary Prove to the world that I can take what they throw at me I’m tired of whoever sayin’ I’m incapable of anything I’ll beat em’ in the ring with my impeccable singin’ Just watch me I’ll squash any competition that comes my way I’ll come at anybody who has somethin’ to say I’m tired of all the constant negativity If you wanna play, come on, I ain’t fuckin’ playin’ That’s what I’m sayin’ Next time you get at me Treat me with some god damn respect Just because I'm autistic Does not mean I'm stupid as shit So if you ever wanna, holla at me Or collaborate with me Just remember I'm a human being just like you Just like everybody else So please, stop with the disrespect alright Peace
7.
Situations happen everyday You gotta be careful with what you do and say You gotta hold down the fort and weather the storm You gotta be on your A-game when it’s time to perform I ain’t playin’, shit can get serious So you gotta move fast, like real quick Or else you can get your ass killed real fast You better be prepared or else you won’t last Situations Everyday of my life I encounter situations Leaves me contemplatin’ whether I’ll face an altercation I keep God by my side, I’m prayin’ to him all the time For the hopes I can survive and make it out alive It’s a constant struggle, they wanna drag you to hell Destroy every part of you until you don’t know yourself I’m just wonderin’ why I endure this pain I wanna be happy, not see my life go down the drain I got enemies galore cause I’m always at war With myself, I don’t know why I come back for more It’s like I have a death wish though I’m afraid of death I’m so apathetic, I’d embrace the last breath World’s so hard to fix, it’s like we keep creatin’ problems And it’s still revolvin’, how the fuck can I solve them Danger’s everywhere, It’s like a minefield out there Either you’re scared of dyin’ or you grow a pair It’s your choice Situations happen everyday You gotta be careful with what you do and say You gotta hold down the fort and weather the storm You gotta be on your A-game when it’s time to perform I ain’t playin’, shit can get serious So you gotta move fast, like real quick Or else you can get your ass killed real fast You better be prepared or else you won’t last Situations My life's a situational, my irritation level High, It make me confrontational You can blame it on my pride, what would it really take for you To swallow that and move aside if I was really great for you Say I could but that's a lie, he face a different avenue Peek the mirror, see the creature, yeah that's lookin' back at you Face your fears and park them out, find out there all subtractable An actual shadow that's dark and made just to react to you Bounce back and then lose it, I find ignorance in losers Take every doubt and I noose them, make every birthday hat useless All these negative questions, man I ain't here for the scruples Look you right in the eye, realize you're barely a pupil, hardly a student Try to take these lessons and use them, got a master rip before they leave your spirit in ruins I hear what they're doin', I choose to find a brighter side It just so happens to be where all the darkness lies Situations They can define you at your best Or they can define you at your worst How you handle your situations is how you handle yourself You gotta have confidence when handling these situations Otherwise the situations will handle you So handle your situations Don't let your situations handle you Peace
8.
Holy fuck Never seen so much death in my lifetime And as I walk through the valley of death I ask myself Am I truly in the right mind I don't know I walk on the ground where the souls lay dead Trynna comprehend what is goin’ on in my head Lots of people dyin’, every day it’s gettin’ worse I’m worried I might see myself in a hearse The world’s becomin’ such an unsafe place I can’t even walk on the streets without riskin’ my fate People want money more than ever before They wouldn't care if I die, I’m just a casuality of war It seems like we mourn people less everyday There's so many graves and I don’t know what to say When you’re gone, you’re gone, but they don’t realize That death lasts more than 15 seconds, I’m tryin’ To hold back tears but they keep flowin’ out People sayin’ to my face to just cut it out They think that death is just an easy way to fame You can see the celebrity but you’ll never see the pain Or the struggle Stop the Bloodshed It’s all I want, stop the bloodshed Stop the violence and all the death No one needs to ever lose their heads Just stop it Stop the Bloodshed It’s all I want, stop the bloodshed Stop the violence and all the death No one needs to ever lose their heads Just stop it We should of learned when Biggie and 2Pac died That it’s not okay to take somebody's life We should of been over COVID, that there’s a fact Of course, people don’t care, all they do is react For the attention and the clout that gets them easy fame I seriously don’t get what goes on in their brains Attention spans have gotten short, they won’t even notice They mourn you for 15 seconds then they lose their focus Pop Smoke would of survived had you not taken his watch A hundred dollars at the pawn shop is not a lot Drakeo would of survived had police stopped messin’ around He ain’t a criminal, why you stab his body to the ground Now YG gonna die and they gonna blame it on him Another life lost, where does anybody win I don’t know why they keep takin’ them lives All I know is that everyday, somebody dies And it’s a shame Stop the Bloodshed It’s all I want, stop the bloodshed Stop the violence and all the death No one needs to ever lose their heads Just stop it Stop the Bloodshed It’s all I want, stop the bloodshed Stop the violence and all the death No one needs to ever lose their heads Just stop it Rest in peace to those we lost And those we will lose in the future The struggle continues

10.
Consequences Everybody be goin' through them Even I ain't exempt Here we go Consequences They can be either good or bad Consequences They can make you either glad or mad Consequences We all face em’ every single day Consequences Don’t be afraid, you gotta face them the right way Consequences Every day I live life like the rest of you I claim to know what I’m doin’ but I’m just a fool I can’t cope with these situations at hand… Everyday it’s stressful, guess I’m not a man Still I face the consequences whether good or bad Been facin’ consequences since I was a little lad Have demons inside me, just wish the pain would stop How can I handle ambition when I can’t handle what I wrought I hurt a lot of people from all across the globe I tried to fix situations but it just made it worse Made lots of mistakes just learnin’ the game I don’t know everythang but I feel your pain I’m not perfect, nobody is, I wish you’d understand I ain’t mad, do your thang and get massive cash I just wish that my mind would be clear of the fog So I can take off this mask and drop this facade And be me Consequences They can be either good or bad Consequences They can make you either glad or mad Consequences We all face em’ every single day Consequences Don’t be afraid, you gotta face them the right way Consequences I don’t know the extensivity of the situation Nor do I claim to know of what you’re sayin’ I do understand when I do something wrong Morality in my system, my empathy is strong I know I’m weak, I know I need improvement It’s hard when the world is constantly movin’ And changin’ at a rate that’s too fast for me Consequently, I’m behind socially But that won’t stop me from tryin’ to advance Even when the world rarely gives me a chance I’m aware of the ways that they put me down That’s why I act like a clown, so I can get around I know there’s no way to hide my deficits Everybody can tell that I’m clearly autistic And I’m self-aware of it, it’s not even funny I’m a consequence since birth, I’ll always be a dummy This ain’t fun man Uh, peace and harmony Pump a level like through my arteries I conversate with the darkest part of me Now I dance in the sunlight, givin' love is my offering I found, peace and chaos, I hit the lottery I paid attention to the seeds that I'm planting And the stars that I'm grabbin' and the spells that I'm castin' Energy I'm havin' and the road that I'm pavin' I gotta love myself than love the world I gotta help myself than help the world I gotta heal myself than heal the world I gotta love myself than love the world I gotta help myself than help the world I gotta heal myself than heal the world Around the world

about

What happens when you ostracize and put down a person his entire life, this is the result.

I was supposed to be ordinary, guess that was out of the cards for me.
