Verse 1:
       Bm
It was 6:48, I was walking home
 
Stepped through the gate, and I'm all alone
        Em
I had chicken on the plate, but the food was cold
 
Then I covered up my face so that no one knows
D
I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble
A
But then came trouble
         Bm
When my mom walked into the living room
 
She said, "Boy, you gotta tell me what they did to you"
          Em
I said, "You don't wanna know the things I had to do"
 
She said, "Son, you gotta tell me why you're black and blue"
D
I said I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble
A
But then came trouble
 
Pre-Chorus:
        Bm
And my heart was pumping, chest was screaming
  Em
Mind was running, air was freezing
 D
Put my hands up, put my hands up
   Gb
I told this kid I'm ready for a fight
 
Chorus:
  Bm                          Em
Punch my face, do it 'cause I like the pain
                D
Every time you curse my name
            Gb                   Em
I know you want the satisfaction, it's not gonna happen
  Bm                           Em
Knock me out, kick me when I'm on the ground
                 D
It's only gonna let you down
            Gb
Come the lightning and the thunder
 Em                           Bm
You're the one who'll suffer, suffer
 
Verse 2:
         Bm
Well I squared him up, left my chest exposed
 
He threw a quick left hook and it broke my nose
        Em
I had thick red blood running down my clothes
 
And a sick, sick look 'cause I like it though
D
I said I didn't want trouble, I'm the boy in the bubble
A
But then came trouble
 
Pre-Chorus:
       Bm
And my heart was pumping, chest was screaming
 Em
Mind was running, nose was bleedin'
 D
Put my hands up, put my hands up
Gb
I told this kid I'm ready for a fight
 
Chorus:
  Bm                           Em
Punch my face, do it 'cause I like the pain
                D
Every time you curse my name
            Gb                    Em
I know you want the satisfaction, it's not gonna happen
 Bm                           Em
Knock me out, kick me when I'm on the ground
                D
It's only gonna let you down
           Gb
Come the lightning and the thunder
 Em                           Bm
You're the one who'll suffer, suffer
 
Verse 3:
       Bm
It was 6:48, he was walking home
 
With the blood on his hand from my broken nose
           Em
But like every other day, he was scared to go
 
Back to his house 'cause his pops was home
D
Drowning his troubles in whiskey bubbles
A
Just looking for trouble
              Bm
Well, there's no excuse for the things he did
 
But there's a lot at home that he's dealing with
             Em
Because his dad's been drunk since he was a kid
 
And I hope one day that he'll say to him
D
Put down those bubbles and that belt buckle
A
In this broken bubble
 
Chorus:
 Bm                           Em
Punch my face, do it 'cause I like the pain
                D
Every time you curse my name
            Gb                    Em
I know you want the satisfaction, it's not gonna happen
  Bm                           Em
Knock me out, kick me when I'm on the ground
                D
It's only gonna let you down
          Gb
Come the lightning and the thunder
  E                           Bm
You're the one who'll suffer, suffer
