The Story Of Jason
Author: Ashley R


Jason Sales is his name
and he grew up in L.A.
Like any other kid, he wanted the fame,
but that's not all there is to say

He lived without a dad
all he had was his mother
and I think that made him mad.
Later he got a sis, although he'd wished for a brother.

He was so glad,
when his daughter came
Now he could call himself a dad.
But the way Bre' treats him, I think it's pretty lame.

Give me a break, Breanna,
he's your fuckin' father.
He gives everything to you,
maybe a damn 'Thank you' wouldn't bother.

The way you put on a show
Cause you fear of what people might know.
You fear for what they might find out
What your dad was all about.

The way he got into drugs and drinking,
Clearly he wasn't thinking,
for ahead in life.
For that's the reason he picked up the kitchen knife.

As he stands there in my grandma's house
in front of the sink,
he is quite as a mouse,
as he begins to think.

Whether or not to end his life,
or try to fix things with his ex-wife.
To stay and watch his first-born grow.
The answers to these questions, he will never know.

For what he did next,
was a big surprise.
He had slit his neck,
only to be successful with suicide.

To B*tch

Well thanx for the comment. What do you mean "she opens up and says sum stuff"? I don't think I had a girl open up at all. Just mentioning a few lines about his mom and daughter, but thats all. They dont talk or anything. Just clearin the air.
