17 Dead Lyrics

I got shot with a buck shot, shot me down
But you know you can't paint a frown on a clown
Sewer gutter blood runs through my system
Death stopped by but I must have just missed him
Am I in a southwest street gang?
Do I bang, do I slang, do I...

    17 is not what they use to speak of evil.
    17 is the number of albums their first jokerz card
    sold. and if you look hard enough, youll see that they use other numbers that you can add subtract devide or multiply to equal 17. . .

    Actually 17 is a special number to ICP. The first day carnival of carnage came out it only sold 17 copies. They use the number 17 in all their albums its kind of an inside joke.

    J speaks on how he got shot....again....speaks of how the news wouldn't care.....17 is a word they use frequently to speak of evil and wickedness.....so 17 dead is used for that reason....then he speaks of dead bodies appearing everywhere.....17 isn't just used for bodies...as he says I drop seventeen tears from my eyes....you get the picture.....A bigot(rich redneck) sees 17 dead bodies on fire and is referred to as creating the ghetto.....so they hate this man of power.....then the song breaks into a group freestyle where he speaks of things....Skylark- a plane.....I think him and jumpsteady had a Skylark
