Verse 1.
I wanna crush, kill, destroy,
The stress weighs heavily,
I swear Hip Hop will be the death of me,
I'm getting buried in the booth, not the cemetery,
I write like tonight just might be the end for me,
Hooked on red bull, my energy depleted,
Never retreat until my enemy defeated,
I'm battling beats, tackling each with vengeance,
With each speech I release the tension,
No less than perfection I strive for,
Willing to try more,
This music I live and I die for,
My only rest will be cardiac,
I don't wanna party,
I'll be by the bar where the bacardi's at.
Stress, s- t - r- e double s, stress (repeated)
Verse 2
Palpitations, sweats and migraines,
Panic-attacks, I've got debts and time-frames,
Dates and deadlines,
So I can't rest when it's bedtime,
I'm trying to stay ahead of the breadline,
I need some head space,
Four people in the same room,
At nighttime I need some bed space,
I'm running a dead race, I'm going cuckoo,
Losing my mind trying to solve a sudoku,
My life stinks like a plate full of fufu,
Late for work because my day job's doo doo,
Somebody please help me, I'm ready to lose it,
I'm like a loose cannon going round with the fuse lit.
Verse 3
I've had enough, yo I can't really take more,
Everyday it's like I got something to pay for,
I'm out to break laws, 'bout to break jaws,
Get up in my face bruv, maybe I'll break yours,
So break north,
Better give me a wide berth,
Doctors can't fathom how the fuck my mind works,
A real wild child with a vision of red mist,
Ready to rumble, I stay with a clenched fist,
Popping a prescription pill,
I roll another cig, I tried but can't quit for real,
This is an SOS, I'm in need of a saviour,
Before I slaughter my inconsiderate neighbour.
