Lyrics:
make a wish
make it hurt
with my hands
up your skirt
tonight
signal directional
institute correctional
I file it alphabetical
hhhhypothetical but
it’s animal
it’s animal
it’s animal
unbelievable
tonight
fucking incredible
sense of smell exceptional
I bust it out like medical type
the theoretical thug
with my guns
on the floor
and the feds
at the door
tonight
signal directional
institute correctional
I file it alphabetical
hhhhypothetical but
it’s animal
it’s animal
it’s animal
unbelievable
tonight
oh no not me
I’m pissed off ripped off repeat
oh no not me
what’s my excuse this time I suffer it
