Angel of death

[Verse 1]
Let you a story 'bout black
The one mem'ry, and the one who threw it right back
He was down so I took a ride
He moved [the best way?] outta there so I took his advice

[Chorus 1]
Oh, two seconds flat
If I'd've know he would've treated me like that
Whoa, two seconds flat
I was I to know he woulda done me like that?

[Verse 2]
He had an empty gaze
And his eyes like [a babe?]
Took me thoroughly
I threw the coat away and just like a fox he said

[Chorus 2]
Oh, who's lookin' at ya?
Who was a good kid when God was lookin' after ya?
Whoa, who'll make it through?
How was I to know it would've done this to you?

[Verse 3]
He made his move then I was down all alone
I kept askin' to come up for [luck?]
I would take it and he would turn it in
Wait, let me catch my breath
That's black if you can catch him with it
I was someone who believed in sin, he said
I think I know just who that is

[Chorus 2]
Oh, who's lookin' at ya?
Who was a good kid when God was lookin' after ya?
Whoa, who'll make it through?
How was I to know it would've done this to you?

[Verse 4]
Dead man now, once was a friend
He ran all the way upstairs just to make my defense (?)
Threw me in the bag with ice and a smile
Can of coke down my throat, almost his whole hand fittin' in

[Verse 5]
First I was a muse, close to death never been
When the bright light went away I knew death was settin' in
If I knew I would tell ya
To keep trouble [?], I tell ya
You're the next one to get
Left with the story, that's when you go mad, that's black

[Chorus 3]
Oh, who's not lookin' at ya? (angel of death)
Who'll be a good kid now that I'm lookin' after ya?
Whoa, who'll make it through?
How was I to know black would've turned from me to you?

[Outro]
(Angel of death)
(Angel of death)
(Angel of death)
(Angel of death)
(Angel of death)
(Angel of death)
(Angel of death)
