From the recording Hyperactive
I actually had a friend that told me this story of his childhood, (or something close to it).
Yes they actually gave him speed to slow him down. Stranger things have happened.
THE THINGS WE DO, WE CAN'T TAKE BACK,
MY WIFE GAVE BIRTH WHILE SMOKING CRACK
AND FOR THE BLESSED EVENT, I WAS HIGH AS THE RENT
I WAS ONLY SMOKING WEED, SURPRISED I COULD COME UP WITH SEED TO BRING THIS BOY UP TO THIS WORLD, AND WHY
HYPERACTIVE, THEY SAY MY BOY IS WILD
HYPERACTIVE, HE RUNS INTO WALLS , THIS CHILD
IS HE DESTINED FOR RITALIN, CAUSE NOW IT'S SPEED THEY'RE GIVING HIM, TO MAKE HIM SLOW DOWN TO WALK AWHILE
I DON'T SEE THEM ANYMORE, THEY SAY MY SON STEALS FROM THE STORE, TO GIVE HIM AND HIS SISTER CLOTHES AND FOOD.
THE GROCER TURNS THE OTHER CHEEK, HE KNOWS HIS MOM AND DAD ARE WEAK, AND THE BITCH SAYS I'M A DEADBEAT SO SHE SUED.
TWO MORE KIDS SURVIVE DIVORCE, AND THE MOTHER'S GOT A BRAND NEW PORSCHE, HER SECOND EX AND I SUPPLY THE GAS.
THEY SAY MY BOY IS DOING WELL, BUT I KNOW HIS LIFE'S A LIVING HELL, AND I MISS HIM AND LIFE GOES BUY SO FAST
