Out the window on a forty second story ledge

I got a three fifty seven leaning in my head

I just swallowed a hand full of meds

and I chased them with alcohol.


Now I'm  

standing high and I couldn't feel bigger

I'm gonna jump- same time pull the trigger

In my heart, I can't help but snicker

'cause I'm saved before I fall

yeah, I'm

blessed and protected

blessed and protected-   better than

you all. 


I got a   firm hand shake and a winning smile

no motivation to go the extra mile

I'm a silver spoon son of another blessed child

no better can be found.


Everything I do and say is praised,   it makes sense

my very sweat,       it reeks of confidence

yeah, I'm   much stronger than a grave yard fence

around that hallowed ground

I'll keep you

blessed and protected

blessed and protected- safe and sound.


God is America  and her voice is sweet

makes me feel privileged just to wash her feet

Where her world ends, we'll call it Hollywood

Wouldn't change it if we could

even though she says we should.


I got a   lucrative, ever shifting contract

and a lap top I can't afford to be hacked

I hear you crying 'cause you want your money back

It was spent to keep me high-


still, I got

grounded in my plane I aimed at the Riviera

forced to hit the air with big G Rivera

he said

“The end ain't here, but it is a little nearer-

Sad excuses will not fly.”

But, I'm blessed and protected

you know, Blessed-And-Protected never dies.


That's why

I'm out the window on a forty second story ledge


I got a three fifty seven leaning in my head


I just swallowed a hand full of meds


and I chased them with alcohol.
