I'm too hard to kill, I refuse to die
Sweat tears and blood, paid dues survive
In these streets I roam, I've been blessed to live
Could've easily got caught up in my yesteryears

But I'm here, my story remains the same
I ain't changed a bit, I speak words of pain
From a frozen heart, lost what's left to lose
I'm alone and what I promise is death to you

And it's true my only fear is I have none
My conscience makes me keep me to myself 'cause I blast on
And I can fall asleep right next to a dead man
I'm cold, I put bullet holes all off in your headband

So bring me death 'cause I've been itchin' to see
If it's an afterlife, aim it at me, cock it and squeeze

Please back to back to back to back to back to back, nigga
From my first fuckin' album nigga
And I still can't be fucked with, trust me

I'm the truth in here, I give up what's real
Not afraid to die, not afraid to kill
But afraid to lie and too scared to steal
'Cause what's mine is mine and what's his is his

In these streets it's clear, punishment's severe
If that line is crossed that's when them guys appear
It's like nothin' you've seen, so fuck what you've heard
It ain't what you believe 'cause it's deeper than words

If silence is broke then somebody's comin' to blow
Holes in yo' upper body, leavin' a bloody coat
To be viewed by these dudes who feel like this
When it's enough said, it's bloodshed, believe that shit nigga

'Cause we that sick nigga, you see that bitch, get her
'Cause he that snitch nigga, so squeeze that's it, figure
That you watch what you say, you say it and die
What you cherish is close to me so don't testify

Straight up hood nigga, made it rappin'
Yeah, caught a break
My life put down in words, homey
That's some real shit, yo

A rapper you hated to love, respected and feared
What I'm capable of there's nothin' they say in our ears
I'm a soldier for fortune, I've got murderous plots
Plus I'm suicidal, walkin' this parking lot

With my dangerous thoughts, I'm a dangerous dude
When I up it and cock the hammer I'm aimin' dude
I came in to do, I'm a killing machine
And with life comes a price so I triple the fee

When it's trippin' with me, either win or you lose
In the end he who wins is he who finishes fools
I'm sentencin' you, to a home in the sea
With lint in your pockets, you rolled with weed

Exposin' the weak, you hoes fin' to sleep
With the fishes bitches and y'all should know the demeanor

Yeah, everything that I say I am nigga, I am
Know the rest of you motherfuckers wish you could be that real
I tell you what my nigga, be real with your motherfuckin' self

I am Facemob nigga, I am the best nigga
I am the back to back to back to back nigga
You know what I'm sayin? Yeah
