Madchild – Badchild


Wasn’t working so I went and got my teeth fixed
Fans acting like it’s killing them, these cheap tricks
Used to sit and gather my words, called it artillery
Nothing’s fucking thrilling me Life used to sparkle.
Samples chopped like it’s martial arts

Can’t complain, kids like my art
Now life is torture, would madly end it willingly
Now I’m older, I got suicidal tendencies
Trying to boss up like Tony Soprano
But feel like, I’m still waiting for my life to start
[Verse 1]
Lost a couple teeth, went back to the grill again
Standing on a ledge about to jump but I’ll rejuvenate
Bubbling but still missing something like I’m diet cola
Walk around my city and I feel like I’m invisible
Last three months catatonic, feeling miserable
When I was young, love, suicidal tendencies
I’m still a boss like I’m Joseph Bonanno
Maybe I should lower the bar, it’s raised too high
[Verse 2]
Known for saying harsh remarks that are partially dark
Might be punished for my sins, that would make sense
Holding on, but I hope it’s soon
Now feel like a piece of shit in a bottomless pit
Feel stranded on an island like I’m Gilligan
Reason I’m still here are for my dogs and my family
High roller that’s bipolar
Trying to build my strength like beam so I can climb out
Maybe I should work harder, but I do try
Starts a line once, haven’t had a break since
Responsibility, literally killing me
But life moves so fast, I need a time out
Not Casper the Ghost tight grasping for quotes
Panic in my legs, feel heavy while I hallucinate
Used to walk around, thank god i’m the shit
Never felt like I had to ask it for dough
I don’t expect anyone to understand me
‘Cause pills the only way I know to patch these open wounds
