But, chances are that you'll probably die violent
The best hope that you got is getting knocked
And end up with a job in a prison metal shop
They ain't paying nothing but three hots and a cot -- shit
However, there’s a high probability that you’ll spill blood over drugs. Best case scenario, you get locked up in prison and have a replacement job behind bars. It may not pay much, but at least you’ve got a roof over your head.
