A-yo!
This song is dedicated to all the happy people
All the happy people who have real nice lives
And have no idea what it's like to be broke as fuck



[Verse]
  Dm
I feel like I'm walking a tight rope, without a circus net
    C
I'm popping percocets, I'm a nervous wreck
          F
I deserve respect; but I work a sweat for this worthless check
A                                                         Dm
'Bout to burst this tech, at somebody to reverse this debt

Minimum wage got my adrenaline caged
C
Full of venom and rage

Especially when I'm engaged
                F
And my daughter's down to her last diaper
                      A
That's got my ass hyper
                                           Dm
I pray that god answers, maybe I'll ask nicer

Watching ballers while they're flossing in their pathfinders
C
These overnight stars becoming autograph signers
F                                                A
We all long to blow up and leave the past behind us
                                                 Dm
Along with the small fry's and average half pinters
                                                   C
While player haters turn bitch like they have vaginas
                                                       F
'Cause we see them dollar signs and let the cash blind us
                                                A
Money'll brainwash you and leave your ass mindless

While snakes slither in the grass spineless



[Chorus]

            Dm
That's Rock Bottom

When this life makes you're mad enough to kill
            C
That's Rock Bottom

When you want something bad enough to steal
            F
That's Rock Bottom

When you feel like you've had it up to here
             A
'Cause you're mad enough to scream but you're sad enough to tear



[Verse 2]
N.C.                     
My life is full of empty promises

And broken dreams
    C
I'm hoping things will look up

But there ain't no job openings
F
I feel discouraged, hungry and malnourished
A
Living in this house with no furnace, unfurnished
        Dm
And I'm sick of working dead end jobs with lame pay
         C
And I'm tired of being hired and fired the same day
     F
But fuck it, if you know the rules to the game play
        A
'Cause when we die we know we're all going the same way
      Dm
It's cool to be the player, but it sucks to be the fan
     C
When all you need is bucks to be the man
                F
Plus a luxury sedan

Too comfortable and roomy in a six
     A
But they threw me in the mix

With all these gloomy lunatics
         Dm
Who walk around depressed

And smoke a pound of ses a day
      C
And yesterday went by so quick it seems like it was just today
F                                                              A
My daughter wants to throw the ball but I'm too stressed to play

Live half my life and throw the rest away



[Chorus]

            Dm
That's Rock Bottom

When this life makes you're mad enough to kill
            C
That's Rock Bottom

When you want something bad enough to steal
            F
That's Rock Bottom

When you feel like you've had it up to here
             A
'Cause you're mad enough to scream but you're sad enough to tear


[Verse 3]
N.C.
There's people that love me and people that hate me (yup)
                       C
But it's the evil that made me this backstabbing, deceitful, and shady
F
I want the money, the women, the fortune, and the fame
A
That means I'll end up burning in hell scorching in flames
Dm
That means I'm stealing your checkbook and forging your name
C
There's lifetime bliss for eternal torture and pain
         F
'Cause right now I feel like I've just hit the rock bottom
   A
I got problems now everybody on my blocks got 'em (I'm done)
Dm                                                  C
I'm screaming like those two cops when 2pac shot 'em
                                                         F
Holding two glocks, I hope your doors got new locks on 'em
                                                    A
My daughter's feet ain't got no shoes or socks on 'em
                                                                Dm
And the rings you're wearing look like they got a few rocks on 'em
                                                                 C
And while you flaunt 'em I could be taking them to shops to pawn them
                                                         F
I got a couple of rings and a brand new watch you want 'em?

'Cause I never went gold off one song
     A
I'm running up on someone's lawn with guns drawn


[Chorus]
