My Paycheck

Hook
I bust my ass for my check,
I don't get to keep any of it.
I sweat balls for my money,
But man I never keep a cent.

Verse 1
I get paid every week,
But I don't see my check.
It just turns the other cheek;
Damn near breaks its neck.
It's got on an invisible sheet. No specs.
I meant cloak. As a matter of fact,
I'm Mrs. Norris, and it's a rat.
It's the third pitch, and I am the bat.
Lets not even talk about new tech.
The only way for me to get a gadget
Is to fall behind on my god damn rent -
Or steal it.
Damned lament.
My money's quiet like a ninja assassin.
I just cash it, then hand it over. No jokin'!
I

But man I never keep a cent.

Verse 2
I'll take some pennies for my thoughts,
And maybe some insurance,
But I can't get that,
Until one of guys accept one of my applications.
Yeah right! Man my paychecks
Would rather be in someone else's pockets.
I could go stand in line, no sweat,
I'll go spin signs; You bet!
Work for a gas station, or some shit.
Or I could take this guy into the alley
So he can hand over his wallet.
"Put 'em up!" and
Wait, My bread just texted,
Told me to get tested;
I got STD's, she wants to keep her distance.
Hypocrits, don't care what I need.
Right now, I'm working multiple jobs, just to eat.
Should have stayed in school,
But instead I stayed in bed;
Now I stay in need.
I had invisible visions of lemons;
Ambitions, you see.
"You don't have to work hard to get the riches."
That's what they said to me.
But now I

Verse 3
Big bank takes little bank.
Most at one time?
If I told you, a thousand, I'd be lying.
Man being this poor is so stupid; a crime.
Like I'm stuck here in prison,
And she's no longer mine.
She's out all the time.
My money's so gone, didn't say good bye;
Not even a letter, or even a line.
I'm so blind,
The only time I see Benji's
In the back of my mind.
Why can't I just get there,
And keep my place in line?
When will I get to touch my piece of the pie?
Please show me a sign.
Will putting this pencil to this piece of paper,
And speaking these lines
Get me atleast a quarter per rhyme?
Forget it, I'll settle for anything at this time.
Man, I wish I was on my grind.
I'd be behind that money,
Like the collectors are mine.
Please Lord, let it be my time to shine,
Cause right now I

Man, I don't see a lick.
I don't see a lick
