My fam is dysfunctional as fuck

But you’d never know from the outside lookin’ in

I’m just waitin’ for the day

When we can all be honest

Errrbody quits hidin’

Boldly sharin’ deez secrets

I personally think

That’s the only way

We can each find true healin’

Transparency is

A dyin’ art

I get it

There are certain parts of me

I still struggle to share


The only reason really

Cuz I’m worried

Can’t risk the legal ramifications

Of such criminal infractions

Never been to prison

Hope I never have to



It’s time to stop fakin’

And start releasin’
