[Intro]
[Doctor] Scalpel
[Nurse] Here
[Doctor] Sponge
[Nurse] Here
[Doctor] Wait...he's convulsing, he's convulsing
[Nurse] Ah
[Doctor] We're gonna have to shock him
[Nurse] Oh my! Oh my God
[Doctor] We're gonna have to shock him
[Nurse] Oh my God


[Verse 1]
These are the results of a thousand electric volts
A neck with bolts
(Nurse we're losing him, check the pulse)
A kid who refused to respect adults
Wore spectacles with taped frames and a freckled nose
A corny looking White boy
Scrawny and always ornery
Cause I was always sick of brawny bullies picking on me
And I might snap, one day just like that
I decided to strike back and flatten every tire on the bike rack
My first day in junior high this kid said
It's you and I, three o'clock sharp this afternoon you die

I looked at my watch it was 1:20
I already gave you my lunch money
What more do you want from me

He said, don't try to run from me, you'll just make it worse
My palms were sweaty
And I started to shake at first

Something told me, try to fake a stomach ache, it works
I screamed, oww, my appendix feels like they could burst
Teacher, teacher,
quick I need a naked nurse
"What's the matter"
I don't know, my leg, it hurts
"Leg? I thought you said it was your tummy"
Oh I mean it is, but I also got a bum knee

"Mr. Mathers, the fun and games are over
And just for that stunt, you're gonna get some extra homework"

But don't you wanna give me after school detention
"Nah, that bully wants to beat your ass and I'mma let him"

[Hook x2]
Brain damage
Ever since the day I was born

Drugs is what they used to say I was on
They say I never knew which way I was going
But everywhere I go they keep playing my song

[Verse 2]
Way before my baby daughter Hailey
I was harassed daily by this fat kid named D'Angelo Bailey

An eighth grader who acted obnoxious, cause his father boxes
So every day he'd shove me in the lockers
One day he came in the bathroom while I was pissing
And had me in the position to beat me into submission
He banged my head against the urinal till he broke my nose
Soaked my clothes in blood
Grabbed me and choked my throat

I tried to plead and tell him
We shouldn't beef
But he just wouldn't leave
He kept choking me and I couldn't breathe

He looked at me and said, "you gonna die, honky"
The principal walked in, and started helping him stomp me
I made them think they beat me to death
Holding my breath for like five minutes before they finally left

Then I got up and ran to the janitor's storage booth
Kicked the door hinge loose and ripped out the four inch screws
Grabbed some sharp objects, brooms and foreign tools

This is for every time you took my orange juice
Or stole my seat in the lunchroom and drank my chocolate milk
Every time you tipped my tray and it dropped and spilt

I'm gettin you back bully
Now once and for good

I cocked the broomstick back and swung hard as I could
And beat him over the head with it til I broke the wood

Knocked him down
Stood on his chest with one foot
Made it home, later that same day
Started reading a comic and suddenly everything became gray
I couldn't even see what I was trying to read
I went deaf and my left ear started to bleed

My mother started screaming, "what are you on, drugs"
Look at you, you're getting blood all over my rug (sorry)
She beat me over the head with the remote control
Opened a hole and my whole brain fell out of my skull
I picked it up and screamed
Look bitch, what have you done

Oh my God, I'm sorry son
Shut up you cunt
I said fuck it
Took it and stuck it back up in my head
Then I sewed it shut and put a couple of screws in my neck

[Hook]
