I must admit what’s done is done
And I’m relieved for that
I’ve got a bullet in my lung
And pull the safety back
Expel projectiles in the form of notes
I wrote in rhythm to words
(That you never heard.)

One in the chamber
All you need to make it personal
You’ve got a bullet in this gun
Disarm this arsenal
Can’t forget the threat
These thrills possessed
I must confess It in words
That you never heard

Aim it at your mind
Sights are all in line.

Threats of misfires
You can discharge
At the slightest flinch
You’ve got a bullet that’s been sprung
And it won’t budge an inch
Well on the way
You hedge you bets
Forget your vest
won’t handle these words
That you never heard

Aim it at your mind
Sights are all in line

Hell of a time to weaponize
the breathing apparatus
To turn the gun upon itself
No matter what the status
I’m glad it’s in the holster
So I’m calm, whatever that is
I find a way to bolster
Confidence and fight the baddest
Anxiety will it fire again?
Wondering if a man is ever gonna spit that fire again
Retiring them jersey to the rafters
Thinking about the now and thinking about the after-
got me on lock
I’m taking stock
of all the skills I am commanding like a tablet out of rock
Held up by Moses
I Count to 10 and blow this
Spirometer is lacking with incentives so I flow this

Ill health, ill skills ,ill will
Ills still feels real
It’ll kill when it sicken us
