Real as real gets

These words are as real as real gets in the realist form,

It all started when I came out of the womb and the doctor clipped my umbilical cord,

A psychopathic, sociopath was born,

I was number three of a total of four,

My earliest memory, my mom was on the floor,

Dad was beating her calling her a whore,

It was a violent upbringing so violent I was,

But thanks to my dad I could sure take a punch,

Off and running this was my life,

Now let me explain all the heartache and strife,

Traumatized permanently, yea it scarred me for life,

Witnessing my neighbor murdered with a knife,

I could hear my mom cry every night,

Saying, " he shouldn't have seen that, he's only nine"!

Not knowing that path just created my life.

The more time that passed the more pissed that I got,

With my little young heart decaying with rot,

I was bullied in school, no one would've thought,

And Joe was lucky he didn't get shot,

Because the morning that I stole my father's glock,

Joe didn't come to school, he didn't get popped.

Now all the years that passed they all went slow,

Especially the 5 years I did in the hole,

The sacrifices I made, just to save face,

Molded this man, created today,

I've been through it tons of shit,

Waist to chest high and I ran through it,

I always made it to the other end,

In fact deep in that shit is where I met my best friend,

And just like my brother that died, that I'll never see again,

She's playing with his killer, heroin.

For me to "love" I didn't think it
was possible,

For a sociopath love is improbable,

So she's really unique, gotta be special,

Quit taking it for granted or I'm grabbing a pistol,
We'll keep repeating this messed up cycle,

You gotta hear these words that I told,

They're as real as real gets in the realist form,

It all started when I came out the womb and the doctor clipped my umbilical cord.
