I Was Stabbed By Satan Lyrics

[(chorus)]
I was stabbed by Satan
On the day that I was born
I was promised loving
But instead I was torn
La-la-la La-la-la
My heart bled fear
La-la-la La-la-la
My eyes shed tears

A poor black ghetto child
He can't shoot and he can't go run a mile
There's no school
And the kids go running wild
The police and the courts want to run 'em out
He's so poor
And the po poor hate him more
He ain't seen his daddy since back in '84
But, oh well,
So it be now he's in jail
His mother's stressing just to get him out on bail
Now sing it out

[(chorus)]
I was stabbed by Satan
On the day that I was born
I was promised loving
But instead I was torn
La-la-la La-la-la
My heart bled fear
La-la-la La-la-la
My eyes shed tears

And so this story goes on
There's no glory
And the worry takes a toll on
His own body
But his buddies want to roll on
So bloody when the car comes to a stop
The police with the big glocks want 'em out
They say freeze
But there's only one coming out
There's two dead
With a legal gun to his head
It's stupid
He should've played ball instead
Now sing it out

[(chorus)]
I was stabbed by Satan
On the day that I was born
I was promised loving
But instead I was torn
La-la-la La-la-la
My heart bled fear
La-la-la La-la-la
My eyes shed tears

So one day when it's all said and done
My life will be the bluest rap song ever sung
My verses will be curses to the rich
And all sorts of authority will cease to exist
My daughters will be free of war and my honey of fist
And in my honour fists will raise in the air
In the silence of revolution my face will appear
Like the vision of a prisonner
With his last bed
This song is a poem and the whole poem is a tear
Drop to me no ear

[(chorus)]
I was stabbed by Satan
On the day that I was born
I was promised loving
But instead I was torn
La-la-la La-la-la
My heart bled fear
La-la-la La-la-la
My eyes shed tears

I was stabbed by Satan
On the day that I was born
I was promised loving
But instead I was torn
La-la-la La-la-la
My heart bled fear
La-la-la La-la-la
My eyes shed tears

[(spoken)]
So why do kids cry when they're born?
Ever ask yourself that?
I mean, there's no scientifical reason explaining that.
Well, it is said that Satan stabs a child at birth
As an introduction to pain.
You know, welcome to the world, right?
