Path Of Destruction

This song is by GZA/Genius and appears on the album Pro Tools (2007).

He was raised in a house where he got scared of attention
Twisted yet methodical mind, not to mention
Circus like atmosphere, story book upbringin'
Neighborhood full of married couple who love swingin'

Creature lived the life, he spent it in the spotlight
A teacher was his wife who was stabbed and shot twice
They attended a church where they both were active
And a little bit of rope he gave others was attractive

He rule with the iron hand
If the mural wasn't hot enough then he'll swing the fryin' pan
Heavy as the hammer of Thor, you know he suffer
From the consequences of broken vowels and law

A convicted felon for armed robbery
At the time where he had sank into deep poverty
Forsaken by his mother and father, Christ achievin' the talent
He attended the sheet on the path of destruction

Today's prisons are filled with yesterdays juvenile delinquents
Convicts who entered crime even before they entered puberty
On the path of destruction
They remember how old I was when I first got in trouble
Me? Around nine, nah, six, seven, okay

He ended up on the block with kid scooters and ice cream
But ended out in foster home until he was nineteen
Stealin' for food and didn't do for enjoyment
At the time of lay off, shut down and unemployment

He moved into a new world and seek this fortune
And suited himself to the times with extortions
A hustle that was ruled by men and murder
He earned enough for his daily bread and wanted to move further

He knew no good, come from such a sin
Had issues as a kid, so he held it all within
And he pursued the game so happy
On a path of destruction even though the road was rocky

Very caught up in his own drive for dominance
And to know that he would pay in the end was common sense
Some say he had a long deserved death
And then he felt the lead when they were told he left

[Incomprehensible] assault and battery
Plus, mortal techniques, breakin' and enterin', burglary, purse snatchin'
On the path of destruction
Shopliftin', hand graffiti, possession of stolen property

Possessin' and distribution of narcotics
Illegal possession of weapon, assaultin' a police officer, larceny
On the path of destruction
