lyrics

Dear Chris I see what you tried to do
It was dumb I find myself forgiving you
You were thinking of the fam and you needed an out
You knew that ain’t the life that you really about

And even though you got cold feet
And wised up your blood’s still all over the street
It ain’t just yours but our daughter’s mine
The kinda bloodshed that don’t fade with time

And I’m on that mission to fix shxt right
Wouldn’t take their money I took up the fight
At night I hunt 'em down gun 'em down shut 'em down
Doing it all for yawl is all I run on now

The Skid sees me as a guardian angel of death
Cutting lives till no one’s left
Preying on the weak is shIt I don’t take lightly
Locked on my true north, Chris, love, Riley


Santa Muerte can’t protect you from me
I’ma give my good my bad and ugly
Thought you got rid of me-- still around
Ain’t gonna rest till you under the ground

Santa Muerte has abandoned ship
She handed your ass to me to deal with
Blood will be shed earth will be scorched
Never shoulda fucked with Riley North


Dear Carly—I hung em off the wheel for you
Drowned the prosecutor in his own fucking pool
And I turned a dirty lawyer into dirt and-- oooh
You’ll like this-- the judge? He ain’t fit to rule

But he’s fit to fertilise his own grass
And maybe the neighbours’ -- heh we hadda blast
And I got to party with some trash downtown
We tore it up-- I totally brought the house down

It was fire—no really-- I burned it to ash
And speaking of parties—you know how you asked
Me to punch Penny’s mom in the face? You’re welcome
Pissed herself in disgrace just bedlam

Don’t you worry I’ma get Garcia and his cops
His lackeys then I’m coming to be
With the best lil girl in the world who stood by me
You know you’re my true north, love, Riley


Santa Muerte can’t protect you from me
I’ma give my good my bad and ugly
Thought you got rid of me-- still around
Ain’t gonna rest till you under the ground

Santa Muerte has abandoned ship
She handed your ass to me to deal with
Blood will be shed earth will be scorched
Never shoulda fucked with Riley North
