    See Erika didn't have any sisters or brothers
    It was just the cat, her, Father, and Mother
    Erika kept alot of family secrets undercover
    Like how her Father loved her daily wit no rubbers
    And like how her Mother loved her work with her multiple lovers
    At 13 Erika was full of hate towards her dad
    Which was sad
    Because with mom always gone it was like dad was all she had
    But yet it was dad who treated her so bad
    and all she did wrong was try to play along and make daddy glad
    By sex, cooking, and cleaning
    What's next her body is feening
    He knew he was wrong
    She knew he was wrong
    But still it went on and on and on
    till she was finally grown
    moved out on her own
    And had a beautiful daughter
    who she couldn't reveal was her Father
    She didn't bother
    To ever mention her Father...Bobby
    Till today when we met in the lobby
    It started off a simple converstation
    about childhood education
    And everything in relation
    I never been in her situation
    I guess after we talked
    After she walked
    Visioned those nightmarish thoughts
    That were so terrible
    They finally came unbearable
    Cause Erika recited the Lord's parable
    Before she grabbed the gun and pulled the trigger
    Aimed and again pulled the trigger
    Paused and again squeezed the trigger
    Sirens screamed
    Police rushed to the scene
    from a call 3 dead ******s
