it’s rank, it cranks you up

it’s rank it cranks you up

crash you’re fracked you suck

shucks you’re wack you be

all you cracked up to be


dead on arrival

overdosed on whatever

excess of hate and love

I sleep alone


if you were there

then please come in

tell me what’s good

think up something


psychic sidekick

gimme a pigfoot

show me my lifeline

read me my rights
