      In West Philadelphia, born and raised
      Near the playground was how he spent most of his days
      Healing up's taxing 'cause fate is so cruel
      Too sick to play b-ball outside of his school
      Then an unbreakable guy who was up to some good
      Started saving children in the neighborhood
      He derailed one little train and the guy got scared
      And said, "I'm sending you to an asylum for psychological care"
