Man, my pops won't let me drive until the law says that I'm able
But since he fell asleep and left his keys up on the table
I figured I'd be able to snatch em without permission
And he be out cold and never find out they was missin
In this verse, it seems that Consequence is underage. So the only time he is able to drive a car, is if his dad passes out and he snatches up his keys.
