lyrics

“this is one of those time you might find yourself in prison..and maybe lose someone else’s cell phone battery..maybe have to pull off an escape to get it back. i’m sure you’ve been there”

you can feel like a king
in the pen with a cell phone
get your hands on one
feeling like hell froze
all you need now
is some lotion for your elbows
a free world beanie by adidas
and some shell toes
maybe a visit or two
hear your name at mail call
see who come visiting you
room on the list
see hope come in the view
barely hanging on
at the end of my rope in a zoo
it was me black and bono
with the telephono
chasing green dots
cop packs for the low low
battery on charge
guards in the yard
hotrail at the window
got eyes on em hard
snitches probably everywhere
stitches in their face
gotta know your enemies
and know the risk that you take
ears in the street
hear the shit that you say
enticed by police
with some fish on a plate
free world food like a delicatessen
seen heads on a chopping blocks
in less than a second
for some fresh mozzarella
bruschetta or sopprapatta
stab a celly in the back
have to live with it forever
count time everybody catch a rack
cell battery in a chip bag
stashed in the trash
gotta act fast
shift runner got a task
shift change taking out trash in a flash
oh man this is bad
how we finna get it back
bono big mad rightly so
see big homie doing life
coming up for parole
already did 18 straight down the road
hit the perimeter
beyond the flood lights
level 3 work camp
a year to go if done right
keep in mind
this is technically escape
if i’m caught sent back behind the fence
in a cage
and probably back to court
to look the judge in the face
sentenced more time
cuz i caught a different case
yea this is how my brain use work
make up scenarios assume the worst
but here i am in a pitch black bad dream
strike a match
tryna see where the stash be
literally in a dumpster nasty
wrapped in blankets
so the camera don’t catch me
and if the cctv see me
ima lose more than my store twice weekly
ask if it’s worth it and i repeat
not today satan you ain’t finna beat me

i framed the picture
it don’t need a hook (need a hook)
flies on the wall
tryna see me shook (see me what!?)
eyesore decor
call it cedar brook (cedar brook)
if you don’t like it
STFU read a book (cedar brook bitch!)

but shit ain’t go
exactly how intentions planned it
made it back by next count
but came up empty handed
i’m looking like veggie plate
tossed in spaghetti
baked in the sun 6 days straight
dank and rancid
threw my clothes away
scrape the waste from my face
big bruh saved the day
same route different pace
after count gotta wait
i’m like ooh lawd
they send the hounds today
but big bro a pro
look at him go
madew it back before chow call
and nobody know
except maybe couple flies on the wall
if they come and shake me down
no surprise at all
that was just couple days ago
now the word around camp
say the major knows
caught red handed with no place to go
but back behind the fence
and hope bono make parole
like woah

i framed the picture
it don’t need a hook (need a hook)
