Drowning in Ebony Tears. Embedded in our resentment
lay the keys to disengage
but still we burn in persecution
for the punishment of
possessiveness.

"Hey, do you have snapchat?"

"No. I’m an adult."

Work banter.

Mama I’m dying of a heart attack, heart attack,
heart attack
I love that girl but she don’t love me back
My girl she tells me that we’re breaking up,
breaking up,
breaking up
My heart can’t handle the strain that’s shaking it

She tried to tell me no so long ago
I would not listen but now I know

Papa I’m drinking for an overload, overload,
overload
The gun in my pocket is all ready to explode
Papa I’m dying of an overdose, overdose,
overdose
I tried to warn you don’t come too close

I tried to tell you way back when we were young
I tried to warn you there was something wrong
Mama I’m dying
Oh papa I’m dying, dying

Heart attack

Locked up in the classroom waiting for the fight
Down to the schoolyard knocking the gate
Into the alley meet up with the boys
Waiting for the weekend to make a little noise

Thunder is strong, lightning is death
Kicking the girls and it’s starting to blast
Sweeter than the heavens and the fate means stumble
But it’s saturday night when heavy rock was born

Like thunder and lightning
God damn, it’s so exciting
It hits you like a hammer
God damn

It was saturday night I was ready for the dance
My girl walked in holding another guys hand
He stood six foot six he looked two miles wide
I was taking it easy till he took her outside

I was madder than hell and fit to burn
This guy would break a leg before but now he’s got to run
Standing in the corner giving him a thrill
You can keep your lover honey, but he’s got to pay the bill

Well the place started rocking it was saturday night
I was dressed to kill I was feeling alright
Alright in the middle of the night
I wasn’t ready for a rumble but the mood was right

When he got up to leave
I stood in his way
I said love that’s the price you have to pay
In the doorway up against the wall
When they play a heavy record then I’m gonna have a ball

We started to rumble and stumble
It is we were rocking and rolling and rolling and tumbling
I fumbled and started to win
When the greater than wicked then I hit him again

I hit him again and I couldn’t hit him anymore
My head was all black and blue and my jaw was sore
Sweeter than the heavens and like a frightening stumble
It was saturday night when heavy rock was born

Locked up in the classroom waiting for the fight
