He lit a cigarette and said "you know I'm quitting"
He says it all the time to his wife he is hitting
But his actions say otherwise, his life is a lie
He wakes up in a jail cell and wish he would die
Addicted to the limelight, it's the life he chose
These debt collectors calling for the money that he owes
His kids taken by C.P.S., his car repossessed
Drugs are his only escape, his life is a mess
His mother called, He didn't even answer,
She tried to tell him, that his father died from cancer
Instead, he lit a cigarette, and said "you know I'm quitting"
He was speaking of his life, because he's tired of living
911, "please, my daddy's on the floor"
call the paramedics as they rush through the door
she cries out "daddy please, please wake up"
"You haven't even got to see me 18, with make up"
