    And you can tell my baby mamas get the bail money (Bail me)
    I said one thing they ain't like, threw me out like they ain't care for me
    Threw me out like I'm garbage, huh?
    And that food that y'all took off my table
    You know that feed my daughters, huh? (Mmm)
    But I ain't really mad, 'cause when I look at it
    I'm getting them snakes up out my grass and, ****, that's a good habit
    I'm ready for war, let's get at 'em
    And teaming up ain't gon' help 'em
    'Cause beating the odds too deep
    Just me and God, ****, ****, I'm good at it
    Matter of fact, I'm great at it, my cell phone back at it

    I know these people gon' try to tell me how to talk
    Don't know what I seen or what I was taught
    My mama worked two or three jobs to take care of three of her kids, my uncles watched
    Yeah, we was raised by the crack addicts
    Mmm, raised by the drug dealers, killers, and the junkies (Junkies)
    Mama couldn't save us 'cause she had to get the—
    Mama couldn't save us 'cause she had to get the money
    Feel like your world falling, getting too hard to catch it, ain't it?
    You and your girl arguin', you don't like how she actin' lately
    Giving it everything that you can give and you don't get half the patience
    You was busy hustlin', the things come with your hustle
    They got in her head, corrupted her
    Yeah, that's probably what happened, ain't it?
    Large amount of capital, invested in myself
    Underground, I ain't even have a basement, I read the affidavit

    Let's see what it is with you
    Only thing I did to you
    Was always keep it real and true
    Guilty, guess they gon' have to take me

    [Chorus: Kanye West with Marilyn Manson]
    Guess who's goin' to jail tonight?
    Guess who's goin' to jail tonight?
    Guess who's goin' to jail tonight?
    God gon' post my bail tonight
