Old Friend - Hopsin

[Verse 1:]
I remember the first time you overdosed,
A f_ckin overload on meth,
Paramedics saved yo ass,
You was close to ghost,
You never did know which road to go,
It's like you rowed the boat and sailed the wave and hoped to hit the golden coast,
But you sank like the Titanic,
The incident had left your life damaged,
And that's when I panicked,
You thought you had it locked?
Well you ain't on the right planet,
If you tryna live your life right, plan it,
It's like your mind vanished,
Ain't you don't even know that,
I wish that we could go back,
Cause it's so sad when I tell jokes and you don't laugh like you used to,
I really hate to stress it but you're strange to mess with,
So I keep my distance cause you always got this blank expression,
Like you confused and unaware of your surroundings,
Emotions are gone, and no ones found it,
It's overwhelming,
Yo mama told you that drugs are bad,
But you ain't listen till the fire burned yo ass now you understand!

[Chorus:]
You always look like you don't know me,
And I'm mad at the world cause the meth took away my homie,
Gimme back my homie, Please come home!
I just wanna chill on the neighborhood block like we used to,
Where'd you go?
I never would've thought my best friend would be gone in the future
(But I was wrong...)

[Verse 2:]
I shoulda stopped you when I had the chance to do so!
But back then I had felt like that was too bold,
You started hanging with new folks,
And made the drug environment your new home,
This world is too cold,
Could I have prevented this?
Who knows,
They convinced you that the sh_t was cool and it's the hip to do,
Saying it would lift your mood and make you feel invincible,
So you started skippin' school, hangin' with these wicked dudes,
Unaware that when you got older you played the bigger fool!
And it's pitiful, where the f_ck they at now?
In they mid twenties, passed out inside of a crack house,
Back when you met 'em I had doubts,
They put you on a bad route,
And when you needed they help to pick you up, they f_ckin' backed out!
They f_ckin' got you, I can't lie,
But now you're brains fried,
You don't even act like you the same guy,
Yo mama told you that drugs are bad,
But you ain't listen till the fire burned yo ass now you understand!

[Chorus:]
You always look like you don't know me,
And I'm mad at the world cause the meth took away my homie,
Gimme back my homie, Please come home!
I just wanna chill on the neighborhood block like we used to,
Where'd you go?
I never would've thought my best friend would be gone in the future
(But I was wrong...)

[Verse 3:]
I ain't never felt this sh_t before,
It gets me sore,
I reminisce on us playin' Nintendo 64,
And that Christmas in '97 we got new crispy boards,
And we was doin' Ollie's in my kitchen on the slippy floors,
Sh_t changed, and it happened quick,
But I can't forget that you was the first homie I started rappin' with,
You coulda had half of this back when I had established it,
But now I have to sit and feel bad,
Look at what yo actions did.
But you were so outgoing, and so hysterical,
Seein' you now is just unbearable,
It's terrible,
You shoulda made yo choices wisely,
F_ckin' with Poison Ivy,
Without yo brain, please tell me, what would your point in life be?
It's a struggle to get yo ass to listen,
You really hurt me and the rest of your family with all your bad decisions,
We always told you that drugs are bad,
But you ain't listen till the fire burned yo ass, now you understand...

[Chorus:]
But you always look like you don't know me,
And I'm mad at the world cause the meth took away my homie,
Gimme back my homie, Please come home!
I just wanna chill on the neighborhood block like we used to,
Where'd you go?
I never would've thought my best friend would be gone in the future
(But I was wrong...)

Excuse me, do you need a ride?
Looks like you're going downtown yes,
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
Hop in my ride,
Well hi, I'm Chris Dolmeth,
I'm your best friend,
(Chris Dolmeth)
I'm all you need,
(Chris Dolmeth)
If you wanna succeed,
Hop in my ride,
Well hi, I'm Chris Dolmeth
