Benefit - My Story Lyrics

Align:    
  • Once there was a little kid named Benefit
  • Walked around town with a frown, face down, lookin bent
  • Had problems inside, his little sister just died
  • Keep your head up little man, all you got is your pride
  • He said 'the world doesn't want me, and neither does my daddy
  • He'd rather get drunk and puff blunts then have a family'
  • That's real, and ain't nothing realer then that
  • The world is much colder then the steal of a gat
  • But yet he moved on, he fought to stay strong
  • In this cold world, to stay warm he put a jacket on
  • Made of 100 percent pain
  • The label said the only way to wash it was to stand on the rain
  • But he still was cold, the other kids were old
  • All he really wanted in life was Jordan's and gold
  • Then he'd be set, getting fine girls in berrets
  • See him with a boom box and fat boys cassettes
  • If he got into a fight, he'd throw down
  • But he's a little skinny kid, about 70 pounds
  • And he had a loud mouth so nobody stepped to him
  • But I guess if they would've, well I guess that he'd do 'em
  • But it didn't get to that, this little aristocrat
  • Tryin to live phat, smashing mail boxes with bats
  • Runnin wild through the streets, his mouth would make peace
  • Used to play football in mud with baseball cleats
  • That's the life in my memory inbedded in my brain
  • As he started growing, things started to change
  • (Hook)
  • Who has the right to know?
  • My life's a standing flow
  • Who can say, what's right or wrong for people?
  • As Benefit got older he started to realize
  • Everybody's smile was just jealousy in disguise
  • If he turned his back, how is that, a knife would be in it
  • Draw my face-to-face in any place, no one would begin it
  • If they knew, what this kid had been through
  • Nothing nice, ?fest? sacrifice off of lifes menu
  • But things lately, were starting to get crazy
  • And if they stuck around maybe, his mom would lose a baby
  • So they broke out, headed down south on route
  • This kid was still actin wild, thought he was tough no doubt
  • Dealt a difficult hand, but he had to play with it
  • Emotionally disturbed when the kid never quit it
  • Immediately took charge when in his new neighborhood
  • Makes me laugh thinkin when he made forts from wood
  • And if anybody touched 'em, then that's the razz
  • If anybody frontin, to the creak they get cashed
  • In school, everybody sayin 'who's the new kid?'
  • 'I heard he's from Chicago, last week know what he did
  • Such and such,' that's how rumors get started
  • But at lunch acting all retarded eatin Capt'n Crunch
  • Thought he was funny, little dummy makin a scene
  • Lookin happy on the outside, but inside mean
  • Lotta anger built up, from things in the past
  • Such an unreal life, reality hard to grasp
  • That's the life in my memory inbedded in my brain
  • As he started growin, things started to change
  • (Hook)
  • Who has the right to know?
  • My life's a steady flow.
  • Who can say, what's right or wrong for people?
  • He moved again, now his moves totaled thirteen times
  • Started gettin serious, writin serious rhymes
  • He began workin, hustling the company
  • Pockets full of cash, now every day a shopping spree
  • Got away with it, finally got caught and ?bullshitted?
  • They didn't fire 'em, instead the job he quitted
  • His life is slowed down, different then in the beginning
  • Only worse, cause little *****es had him sinning
  • Fell in love one time, maybe twice, who knows
  • Only problem was the girls weren't nice, but hoes
  • It was a big mistake, messed up the kinds mindstate
  • The trade? his best-friends for nice ass and a date
  • Wait, what's goin on here? the girls left him
  • Now he's scarred from left ear to right ear
  • That's his whole brain, now his lights are gettin dim
  • Cause what he did to his best friends, happened to him
  • Now he cares about nothin, feeling sick everyday
  • Thank God, eventually the pain went away
  • Now he's grown mad, then he ever has been
  • Up late at night at home, his only friend is his pen
  • Writin angry to get out frustration out through poetry
  • Treating girls the exact opposite of noblely
  • The struggle continues on, documented in every song
  • Made it this far, confident he'll live long
  • That's the life in my memory, inbedded in my brain
  • And it's true as he grew, things did change
  • (Hook x3)
  • Who has the right to know?
  • My life's a steady flow
  • Who can say, what's right or wrong for people?
