Uhh, uhh, Where am I going?
Where am I? Where the hell am I? Yo, it's ill

Yo my wife's tired of fuckin' me life tries duckin' me
Luckily I find 'em just at the right time
Mack in my right arm, tequila bottle in my left arm like Cristian
Watching my life go, can't do myself in

Wolves in the night yo, hells men two revolvers I can let twelve spin
Hop in my Benz, push it to the limit
Buck-sixty, who wit' me? My cris, two well
Twisted blunts and inner conscience telling me that I ain't shit

No matter how much cash I sit with still gotta ask the lord for forgiveness
My precious, baby, girl, came like forty nights of rain
To replenish my adolescent brain
Blessed be her name, before her birth I was insane
So I drive to cool the pressure down, delay the pain

I ate from these poisonous, fucked up streets
Tasted larceny, it was sweet, I starved for more to eat
Though I took, that was to live, hope God'll forgive
As odd as it is, the more I gain the harder it is

To maintain, bitches playin' games
Niggas snitchin', I ain't saying names
But y'all niggas better watch how y'all slang
Lost so many close niggas, drunk almost crashed

I'm going too fast, highway patrol will just flash
Lights in my rear view, if they stop me, I hope they lock me
Instead they speed ahead, yo nigga watch me

I'm drunk by myself, gun under my seat
I don't want none of my peeps caught up in none of my beef
I'ma ride to the end of the road if I have to
Prayin' no car speed by for me to crash to

Steering wheel in my hand, tryin' to hold it steady
Anythin' in my way is dead
'Cause that's the way I feel, I am already
When I'm drunk by myself alone in the zone, drunk by myself

Heard niggas hate me, but I hated too once
Been in the shoes of a wolf in a night when he hunts
For every shell niggas bust, we bust at ourselves
Can't tell these niggas nothin' though

Bullets wak'em up well, take 'em to hell
Stick up niggas once ran up on me
My deckited lifestyle attracted sharks on me
I ain't your mark homey

It's hard to look straight, my foot on the brake
Spilling my bottle not even shook of the Jakes
Could hardly look both ways, put out the haze blurry vision
Think about the time in my life before I was on television

Hello women, jealous niggas up in my vision
Since we all hood niggas expect kilos
For what they not seeing is police expect Rico
Only if I could take care of everybody, intoxicated
Windows up blastin' AC going wherever instinct takes me
I hate it when I'm like this, the bottle's my accomplice

I'm drunk by myself, gun under my seat
I don't want none of my peeps caught up in none of my beef
I'ma ride to the end of the road if I have to
Prayin' no car speed by for me to crash to

Steering wheel in my hand, tryin' to hold it steady
Anything in my way is dead
'Cause that's the way I feel, I am already
When I'm drunk by myself alone in the zone, drunk by myself

The reason that I want to be alone
Tired of all the things that went wrong
That would have went right if I would have did it on my own
Take another swig, the more I drink, the more I think bad thoughts

Fake friends who hung around who wanna bring you down
Not knowin' who to trust, rumors about niggas comin' through
Supposedly to shoot at us, not knowin' what was true
Or what to believe, that's why I'm on the low lately

Choosin' a Henny bottle over a friend
Drivin' again to keep my mind off that weak shit
There's love through it all, things to live for
I swerve, almost crash into a wall

Think about the good, find myself laughin'
Turn the cell off, no way to be reached
Know I'm near my crib, trying to see my way through the streets
Reminded of the positive, I take my drunk ass home
Start feeling out of it, can't wait to get out of this whip
Bring my ass to the crib, I'm tired

When I'm drunk by myself, gun under the seat
I don't want none of my peeps caught up in none of my beef
I'ma ride to the end of the road if I have to
Prayin' no car speed by for me to crash to

Steering wheel in my hand, tryin' to hold it steady
Anything in my way is dead
Cause that's the way I feel, I am already
When I'm drunk by myself all alone in the zone, drunk by myself
