picture of ignorance and the desire of vantage (to kill
people he doesn't like) while Nas was impersonated to a
prison cell. Nas's verse tells the life of inmates and thinks prison is the home to return to.

Nashawn’s verse

The speaker wanted
to make huge amount
of pain and suffering
to revenge the society.
As the child who was
growing up in slum,
the only thing he
knew is to kill
enemies and to
survive. So his sense
of guilty was not so
strong as other
common people.
He inevitably started
loving and was
addicted to this kind
of life after he grew up.

I wanna be more than that bullet that go through ya zone
Wanna be the lead that tear through ya skin and crack bones
Wanna be the heat you feel makin ya moan
Wanna be the hospital bed that you lay on
Hyperbole
Wanna be the god you feel when you pray-on
It's Nashawn the type that get the hyper calm
Speaker
I'm gonna kill something
considers that
Rap cats be real frontin
many rappers
Fuck shootin legs
don’t live the life
Cock back put his brains on the pave
that they talk
Nigga how bout that
about when on the
Close range with the gauge get payed
stage.
First rapper to shoot off stage
Turn the front page the next day my life is like a book
A twenty four hour song without no hook...
