Edge Of Sanity

Kool G. Rap & DJ Polo

I'm on the verge of commitin murder

My girl is gettin on my last nerve and I don't wanna hurt her

She wants me to get a job

I get harassed cause I'm laying on my ass like a big slob

But everywhere I go I get rejected

They won't hire a motherfucker with a jail record

So the least I could do is look presentable

But I'm labelled by the city as a criminal

They won't give me no slack Jack

And I got one strike against me already because my skin is black

See I'm irrelevant to Help Wanted signs

And they wonder why niggaz commit crimes

My girl pays the rent gas and light

Goes to class at days and works at night

I'm trying to get some money I can hand to her

But I ain't with bein a motherfuckin janitor

Plus I got my little nigga

And I'm tryin my best to be the right kind of father figure

But my hands is startin to shake

I'm tryin to hold my head because I'm reachin for the thirty-eight

I pick it up, man fuckit

I gotta go out and hit the street and get some ducats

Lookin for somethin to hit

I throw on my hood, cause I'm about to do some stupid shit

I step in the Seven-Eleven

Come fast with the cash or get your ass sent to heaven

He must hit the alarm, cause I'm perspirin

cause now I'm hearin motherfuckin sirens

I tried to run out, three thousand decent

Next thing I know, I'm sittin in a fuckin precinct

for tryin to feed a family

I need rubber balls, cause I'm fallin off the edge of sanity

Edge of Sanity (2X)

What a fucked up night

And I'm mad because the cop put on the handcuffs too fuckin tight

Central Bookin is where they sent me

So they could take a couple of pictures after they fingerprint me
