I took a beating in 2003
At least I improved my threshold for pain
See, my eyes swell up and poured out blood
The next six months just cleaning it up
The doctor said he'd stitch up the cut for me
My next beating in two weeks
I've been taking a beating in 2004
Yeah, only two months have passed by and I'm already on the floor
I took a baseball bat straight to the knees
And buckled over on the cold Brooklyn streets
I said, "Doctor, help me back to my feet."
He said to me, "I'll see you in two weeks."
And if I take beating (beating) in 2005 (beating)
It'll be a miracle (beating) if I'm still alive (beating)
