    I knew this kid named Alberto
    Funny style cat
    And his girl looked like a turtle
    Not Lisa Turtle, just a turtle
    High school track
    He ran the hurdle
    His peers shed tears senior year when he got murdered
    Now Alberto was your average A student
    Participated in class,
    Never came late
    And never truant
    His family was picture perfect
    His older sister was prom queen
    His dad a decorated vet from the Vietnam team
    His mother was Dear Abby,
    An ordinary house wife
    Like clockwork, always had dinner on the table at 5
    But Alberto had a monster he kept under his bed
    Instead of letting it out,
    He just got a girlfriend instead
    She knew something was funny
    Shecould tell by his behavior
    Or the way he flamboyantly shook his hand
    When he would wave to her
    She thought nothing of it
    And just shoved it in the closet
    Until the day that word dripped out like leaky faucet
    Alberto was homosexual
    I ain't have nothing against it
    But little Ronnie Johnson and all his football player friends did
    They'd always pick and nag
    Call him "fag" and such and such
    And couldn't wait to get to gym so they could really bust his nuts
    The gym teacher never cared
    He'd just join in on the action
    He'd make silly gestures
    And compared him to Micheal Jackson
    Alberto couldn't take it
    He'd just stop showing up and whenever he walked them halls
    He just felt like throwin' up
    And night he would cry and cry and ask "God why?"
    Like "God, why the fuck'd I have to be born this way?"
    God would reply, "Son, you've gotta show 'em you're more than gay"
    Cause he had dreams to be a track star
    Until that warm April night
    Them gay jokes went way too far
    Ronnie begged for his forgiveness
    And invited him to a party
    Cause his parents went away
    And left him plenty of Bacardi
    Alberto kindly accepted
    He was finally accepted
    Except it was all deception
    And left them all unprotected
    It was a plan Ronnie had scammed
    To get him in the right place
    Verbally degrade and rearrange his pretty face
    The plan would go swiftly
    They started calling him sissy
    One punch turned into fifty
    They beat him till he was dizzy
    Now Alberto lie in blood
    While his peers look on in fear
    He took his last breath
    And passed away his senior year

    Needless to say
    It was one big tragedy
    And how was Ronnie gonna explain to his family,
    While they were on vacation taking in sights
    He got wasted and killed a kid that night

    Don't be a slave and behave the way they do,
    Just utilize the gifts that God gave you [x4]

    I knew this girl named Maria
    Bright and talented
    With aspirations to be a
    Big superstar
    What a great idea
    Until she fell off and started to listening to her peers
    Oh dear!
    Now Maria was your typical obnoxious
    Analytical head strong rebel
    Flippin' off the principal
    Single mother home structure
    She looked after baby brother
    While mom worked two jobs
    Just to buy supper
    Pops was a struggling musician
    Troubled man,
    Juggling family and heroin addiction
    He overdosed and left a notice of eviction
    And a crate of records on the table in the kitchen
    And a little angel with a keen sense of sound
    Who saw silence in the records she found
    And she would stay up late at night
    Reciting songs to herself
    Under pale moonlight
    Righting wrongs that her pops made,
    Promised her mom she'd never go that same route
    Turns out
    Carrie Anne had other plans
    Her and her man Ronnie most popular,
    Second best to nobody
    Homecoming queen versus ugly duckling
    And the story ends the same way
    Ok, Ronnie's parents went away for a couple of days
    And told him "No Drinking"
    What the fuck were they thinking?
    Maria was oblivious that her boyfriend had already been invited
    So when Carrie Anne asked
    She got all excited
    Like "damn now I got something to look forward to"
    Or so she thought
    Maria kindly accepted,
    Except it was all bullshit
    Not pay attention,
    Carrie Anne hated Maria cause she could sing
    So she scored a bag of heroin
    But the craziest thing was
    Maria never touched drugs, she did that night
    And when her man was getting beat
    She was nowhere in sight
    Now her boyfriend lie in blood
    And she had no idea
    Alberto passed away and she got hooked her senior year
    Needless to say
    It was one one big tragedy
    And I hate to break it but
    It doesn't end happily
    A warm day in May,
    The sky was so beautiful
    Carrie Anne died in a crash leaving the funeral
