The Noose

This song is by Tech N9ne and appears on the album Welcome to Strangeland (2011).

I've tried writing this letter now
Several times before
When the party's over and the liquor is no more
I tell you now that living has become somewhat a chore
And following their rules is such a God forsaken bore
Now I say god because I'm program but I believe in none
I see no interventions and I see no holy sons
And if I'm wrong then strike me down and break these breathing lungs
Just take the words reverse them back upon my evil tongue
I've seen children harm each other like it's second nature
Some just want to watch the world burn
Bang upon the drums
And that is why the music and the rhythm will live on
'Cause chaos has a melody and death is like a song
I sing, sing out to the rafters I sing
Close this little chapter and I think
This life is a disaster and it stings
I'm trying to find a way to just sing
Sing out to the rafters I sing
Close this little chapter and I think
This life is a disaster and it stings
You seem him trying to find a way out

What a world x2
I'm hanging up the noose now
Waiting for the end

What a world x2
I'm hanging up the noose now
Waiting for the end

I went to visit wounded soldiers out on Camp Pendelton
And the cause of the missing limbs it meaned that it's no love like Wimbledon
When they sat before me young as hell
Look at me accolades like gentlemen
I'm thinking that the enemy took away their ability
To walk and to touch
No way of rekindlin'
What is now gone
Unless they got money like Forest and Lieutenant Dan
The war
If you in a dam
They have no remorse and that any minute bam
That's fucked off
While we chillin' on tour on the bus getting sucked off
Know a families greaving
Because war is receding
Their peeps and they crying their butts off
That's why I get so much
When I flow bust
While we got it so good
'Cause it's so rough
But the young soldiers who do exactly what they are told to do
Damn
Do exactly what they told to do
Defend their country and uphold the crew
But give my one and only soul for you
That's a hell of a job description
I don't know if my gods with this one
But I guess it's the laws of sickman
Sending out youngins and they fall the victims
Of an evil klans plan
That's why I be saying "Dwam"
'Cause on 9/11 I realized our fate is in another man's hands

What a world x2
I'm hanging up the noose now
Waiting for the end

What a world x2
I'm hanging up the noose now
Waiting for the end

When I see how my love ones had left
I wonder how long I would fight
I wonder if I would give in
And let the reaper lead me into night
See I got to much pride left
Like my grandma that died to early
Reaching for moments
More but instead the cancer in her lungs took her from me
We drift
Naturally like two ships in the roughest of seas
That's why this moments precious yet I'm to distant to feel it complete
See these days I feel so disconnected
It gets harder to drop to my knees
I guess that's a side effect of living in generation x-y-z
Obsessed with pain and greave
Man I wished we were both kids again
Things were simpler than 90's incident got me losing friends to the hands
Of violent men
Fast
Faster then speeding bullets
Whizzing down alley ways
So bubbly I'm waking up from this haze
But only to realize the world hasn't changed
Suddenly I'm not even fazed
Y'all think it's the way we been raised
Fuck it
I'm sick and right back in this haze
Cause this can turn out to be my last of days
With a hope and a prayer
Put a rope in the air
But I'm just too scared
Choking from the pressure
While I rock this chair
Swing back and forth and tempt death with a blank stare

What a world x2
I'm hanging up the noose now
Waiting for the end

What a world x2
I'm hanging up the noose now
Waiting for the end
