Choose mortgage payments; choose washing machines; choose cars; choose sitting oan a couch watching mind-numbing and spirit-crushing game shows, stuffing fuckin junk food intae yir mooth. Choose rotting away, pishing and shiteing yersel in a home, a total fuckin embarrassment tae the selfish, fucked-up brats ye've produced. Choose life.

Hard to get into. Last 1/3 was better. Surprise ending. Hard to follow chronology.

Confusing, difficult to read, and about nothing in the end. Was not a fan at all - In my opinion more over-hyped than's rapping ability.
