The Bad Side

Music & Lyrics: Erinem


INTRO

I'm so sick of being disappointed in people

You're gonna reach a point, eventually

Where you've just had it

Give em your bad side


VERSE ONE

I'm done with falling back

With cutting bitches slack

With bending over back

Words are venomous smack

My affinity for flack hits infinity STAT

Came back a facsimile

Something in me cracked

Put em all on blast, I'm done with the decency

I'm on a warpath and the demon's released in me

I'm off of the fence and on the offensive

Done giving doubt, won't give em the benefit

Resentment's the incentive, my revenge is preemptive

Letting people in, I'm not even tempted

Sorry is irrelevant, you're ignoring the elephant

Humanity ought to be voluntarily celibate

Something I've never been wrong assuming

Is the worst in a human

It's a dog eat dog world, bite first and keep chewing

This is a song for when you feel a fight coming on

Fist up, it's on


HOOK ONE

When all the odds are stacked

I'm done with falling back

(You bring out my bad side)

I run another lap, I'm done taking crap

(Let's just take em all down)

So you can bang the gavel, but the battle ain't done

I'm the bad side, I'm back like the prodigal son

Go ahead and crack

They stabbed you in the back

(Let them meet your bad side)


VERSE TWO

You won't succeed skating by, you're no Tony Hawk

You couldn't get a feat even being the only sock

And ho, you're no singer, oh what a shock

I gave you my input, now I'm taking the aux

You're followed by robots and, keep hitting roadblocks

You don't stand for shit, you just pose on a soapbox

Go back to your glass house,

I'm not above throwing rocks

Cat's out the bag now

Shoved in Schrödinger's box!

I cannot! With your bot playlists

You're not famous

You do not make hits, I forgot!

What you write and wrote is hopeless

Wouldn't survive in this field as a locust

You talk about how hard it is

Bitch you ain't a novelist

You would not have a novel thought

If you sat on top of an obelisk

You're copping this

You couldn't get a pat on the back

With a stop-and-frisk!

You lost this

Is that not obvious?


HOOK TWO

When all the odds are stacked

I'm done with falling back

(You bring out my bad side)

I run another lap, I'm done taking crap

(Let's just take em all down)

So you can bang the gavel, but the battle ain't done

I'm the bad side, I'm back like the prodigal son

Go ahead and crack

They stabbed you in the back

(Let them meet your bad side)


OUTRO

Ways to skin a cat, I only need one

Cheat me and we'll see how fast a cheetah can run

I made a wrong turn, it was pivotal

Learned that white lies are typical

Why not let the bad side drive

My fury is outright alive, it's biblical

The bitterness like biting into

The center of a lemon - shit,

Everyone has a sinner and a bad side within em

I'm the venom in your pen

In the words you won't give em

Subliminal shots, outgun criminal plots

Giving 'em lots to draw from

That was the last straw

And I am the outcome
