I Need My Stuff To Set Me Free

It's One o' clock
And he should be here
I need my stuff
But nobody's near
I got my cash
Rolled in my hand
I'm Ready
Why isn't he?
I need my stuff to set me free

Cops drive by
And give me a stare
They seem to know
What I'm doing here
Staring at the sun
A freaky thought comes to mind
If this is a setup
I'll have to do time
But I guess I can wait at least until 3
Cause I need my stuff to set me free

He finally arrives
At a quarter to five
Hands me a bag
And tells me the price
I tell him I'm short
That I'm so sorry
But since I'm a repeat
He says "no prob"
Just pay him the next time
I give him a job

As I feel the rush
Leaving my head
I realize that
I'd rather be dead
I felt so good an hour ago
But now I've regained
My horrible soul
Everyone tells me
I've got to quit
Maybe cold turkey is the way
But first I need to be set free

So here it is again at one
This time it's raining
And there is no sun
He's late again
But that's alright
I realize now I have
Plenty of time

Good Piece-maybe too good, seems you've had some experience.
