My name is James McDonald
That’s M-C-D-O-N-A-L-D
I live at 1918 Ictus Veil Lane
And I’ve got a rat in my brain
On June the 17th
My neighbor stepped and trespassed in my yard
I was calm but I was firm
When I threw him to the dirt, that filthy little worm

No further questions, your honor
I worry for his wife and public health
This vicious man has eyes for violence
Has the defense anything to say for himself?

He’s lucky that I only shoved him
I could’ve chopped his fucking head off
Just how am I supposed to deal
With these bills, this charge, the hate I feel?
I find you guilty of assault
No, please, I swear it’s not my fault!
Six months of house arrest, take his arms
You’d better not cause any more harm

My mind’s a maze and the rat has found the end
Stuck inside this house that I can’t defend
He took my guns but he’ll never take my pride
Let’s see him run his mouth with my fist inside
