I had a friend named Victor The two of us used hang every single day And it seemed like overnight that his whole life just changed I know when his mom and his dad broke up it didn't make sense But I know that his dad was a drunk and he gambled away the rent Pretty soon Vic was seeing red, pissed off, but instead He'd drink every night 'til he passed out Then he'd do it all again The whole time smiling on the outside to cover the pain But on the inside all he was trying to do was get away Yo, funny how things change color Then fade to another shade, when you had it made It was all good, but now look, just another day It was so fresh, it was so clean Now it's all gone, one, two, three Lights out, which way to turn Can't get a grip, all alone in a big white house Every day gets worse and you just curse 'til your head bursts And it hurts so bad, she left, now you suffer Should've thought of that one first No family, no kids, can't accept what you did, now you wanna Run away but you can't cause the past comes back again Slippin' through the cracks, sip a little Jack Go to bed half dead What about a rent? Why does every cent gotta be a bet When's it gonna end Oh my God, we don't got a penny left My mom's gotta find a way to get a job Outta debt, outta dodge, out of breath, out of this big problem My pop's wanna get away from the pain In a better place in his brain But the medication he takes makes him wasted So sick if he's gonna think the good Lord would come to take him I'm shaking him Wake up you son of a bitch He's dying to get away Let the pain of yesterday Go slipping through the cracks Hiding himself away Watching all the memories fade away From red to black
