Banana Bread
   ------D-Sisive

(Intro)
Yo
Yo
Yo

(Verse)
She told her grandma to pray for me
Tell Satan to stay away for me
But grandma’s baked banana bread wasn’t on my plate when I was crying with painkillers and cocaine in me
In an ambulance running red lights
Watching the devil dance under red skies
Yelling at paramedics with wet eyes
Don’t let me die, don’t let me leave with him
He’s not a friend of my father’s, a false prophet, a red cup
Suckin nice chips and the hospital bed tucked
Scrambled eggs, orange juice and fruit cups
Had a van, clipboards bruises and cuts
A room wasted on a junky with a heart of glass
While in the hole always wait cancer and heart attacks
Promising I won’t make mistakes I’ll regret again
Seven hours later in the same bed again

(Hook)
I stopped breathing, my skin went cold
My heart stopped beating, I’ve never been this close
And I never felt better, I never felt better
I never felt better, I’m finally home

(Verse)
My daddy lit a cigarette and sipped from his ale
Turned off the television set and whispered a tail
His mama was an angel, a bosom full of love
But grandma was the devil with the poison in her blood
Rubbing alcohol mouthwash, whiskey and wine
Face down on the sidewalk, tipsy and blind
Sleeping in her vomit, washed up on the shore
Threw a brick through the window of my grandfather’s door
Ron Dunn, that’s the man name, the neighbors would stare
Some neighbors would laugh, some neighbors shed a tear
Some neighbors said a prayer while my father carried bones
Slipped off his shoes while she slept in her clothes
She would show up at his school and embarrass him in class
With the bottle in her hand, all the kids would laugh
Pleased as a smile curls on my father’s face
While he recalls the day when his mama passed away

(Hook)
I stopped breathing, my skin went cold
My heart stopped beating, I’ve never been this close
And I never felt better, I never felt better
I never felt better, I’m finally home

(Verse)
Illuminated by the light at the end of this
I remember the first time that I dreamt of this death sentence
Early morning on December 5th when we buried and carried him through those church entrances
I thought I’ll be more sensitive,
Since it is my own flesh and blood
But I hear him begging me to catch up
Let it all go, what a shocking thought
No more talking bout the prophet
No more stocks and bonds
No more responsibilities, no more walk the dogs
Mo more family obligations, no more awkward talks with mom
So I lay in bed for a couple days
Blaze of heads but I ain’t space cadet faded yet
I’m tryna get Jerry G grateful dead
So I could play roulette with a bigger net
I made my own grades, I dug it with a butter knife
The earth surface ain’t worth dirt if it doesn’t put up a fight
Tell my wife I love her and then I hug her tight
Then one last lie, baby I’ll see you on the other side

(Outro)
I’m walking through the night, I’m walking on a tight rope
I’m walking with my eyes closed, no net bellow
Look out bellow, then I let go
Let’s go
Geronimo, Geronimo
