“Thinking ’bout the things that I did/Got me thinking, like, why the fuck I did that?/Got me wishing that I could take it all back. Fighting with these demons/Barely even eating/Barely even sleeping/This shit got me tweekin’/Fighting with my lawyers for a better offer/Just want to see my daughter.”
