Hospital Bed

Laying here listening to the beeps
Checking my heart rate as It beats
All I feel is this incredible pain
My chest, my back, aren't even the same
My blood slowly leaks
From everywhere
Inside and out
No blood to spare
Could hardly see
Just heard the syrin
Ready to rescue me

They counted, stabbed nine to eleven times
Two major

Blood in my lungs
And too many I V cables

They numbed me up
And stuck a tube in me

It hurt like hell
If only you knew baby

No more cat scans !
I felt like killing that asian man

Now staying over night
Crippled on this cold bed

But not dead nor alone
Choosing to leave you unknown

Stitched up and sewn
And all I wanna do is go home

So many pills
So many drugs
More morphine
I Needed all of thee above

My family came and so did she
All supported and took care of me
I'm getting better
Soon the tube will be removed

And I'll breathe on my own
Without having to use
This mechanical pump
Which saved my life

When I was all slumped
So many thoughts lost in my head
I just wanna go home
And be out of this hospital bed. .

Three and counting

Bullets fallen between the earth
From the guns that left the hurt
Upon the families who never knew
Of the pain the streets could really do
I've lost a friend or maybe two
Rest in peace to you know who
Your heart gave out on you one day
I wasn't around but I heard them say
You was walking, looked up
Grabbed your chest as you stopped
Looked as if you had no air
Couldn't be saved as if they cared
And to the ground you went
Your time here, wasn't well spent.
One and counting. .

Making money wasn't easy
You hustle hard, for real my nizzie
Getting older pushing more work
Shooting at them niggas
You were always alert
Caught you slipping
Hit like three times
Do you see why
This was street wise
In the end, yeah yo he died.
It hit us deep, yeah yo we cried.
Two and counting. .

Even though I never knew you
Hearing you was murdered
Shit hurt like needles
Shot ten times
It was a set up
I wish you wasn't gone
Brother please get up
Can you hear me
Are you there
Bless your soul
Heaven is near.
I'm done now, can't go on
I'm feeling all types of torn.
Back to the day I was born
I was alone and now your gone.
Three and counting. .
