[intro]
yeah
i saw a dog the other day
it was cute
it went
woo

[verse 1]
day one
just heard views for the first time
drake’s on top of the game
looking down with a bird’s eye
most of the lines on the album
on that sh-t that can nod heads
except for a couple lines on the second track
that i didn’t really process
drake said turn the six upside down
it’s a nine now
didn’t get what he meant
only one way to find out
i get a pen and a pad
and i write down a six
flip the page
and it turns out
upside down six look just like a nine
i’m like, wow

[verse 2]
day two
woke up with my feet on the pillow
i must’ve slept upside down
like a weirdo
brush my t–th in the morning
take care of the pearly whites
but i turn the brush upside down
it ain’t working right
i cycle into work cause it
hurts the environment to drive around
but i turn my bike upside down
can’t ride it now
photo of my hot wife
and my eight year old daughter cara
on the ‘frigerator
i turn the pic upside down
and i figured i would fix it later

[verse 3]
day four
wife said
ever since you heard that drake track
you been turning turning sh-t upside down
you explain that
my wife’s eating breakfast
got herself a bowl of corn chex out
i turn the bowl upside down
it’s a mess now
babe, what did you do that for
sorry, my arm just sort of did that
i don’t really know how
oh really, you lying to me
i turn the table upside down
and it’s broke now
holy sh-t brandon, you’re scaring me
listen babe, i didn’t mean to do it
i really can’t control it
well i’ve had about enough of it
i turn my wife upside down
holy sh-t i think she’s hurt
someone call an ambulance or something

[verse 4]
day seven
wife testify in court
with a neck brace and bandaging
she said
brandon’s been turning things upside down
and it’s damaging our family
prosecutors says they’re gonna
call to the stand another witness
they bring my daughter to the podium
turn my own flesh and blood against me
i can’t believe they did this
they said
cara, the grownups are making a decision
so i need you to be honest
did your daddy turn your mommy upside down
she nodded
i stand up and yell
cara, you know i would never
mean to hurt your mother
they sentence me to psychiatric surveillance
until i can recover

[verse 5]
day i-don’t-have-a-calendar-so-i’mma-guess-eleven
that’s an estimate
i kinda lost track though
i turned my world upside down
no expression
i been locked up in a straight jacket
rotting in the psych ward
my wife and my daughter
haven’t come to visit
i got nothing left to fight for
i obliterated everything i love
i think i’m in h-ll
must’ve turned the seven upside down
cause i took a l
wait a minute
on the subject of numbers i think
a breakthrough revelation just came now
i turn the eight upside down
it’s an eight still
it’s a eight still

[verse 6]
day one
full recovery
been released
out running free
been through the cruelest of plights
i made it through the night
now i can finally resume my life
with my beautiful wife
and my daughter cara
i’mma weep when i see her
moment of reconnection
quickly getting nearer
i ring the doorbell
and the big surprise
the door is opened by
a woman i don’t recognize
when she look at me
she looking mad
but when i look into her eyes
she got me feeling nostalgic
in a way that i never had
the woman spoke up
dad
my eyes started flowing water
i didn’t recognize my own daughter
she’s all grown up
i must’ve been locked up
much longer than i thought i was
my baby cara
i wanted to hold her
but she drew back
and she lost her composure
after everything you’ve done
and as long as you’ve been gone
you think you can just
show up like this
how long have i been gone, cara
you don’t know
i don’t know
as she answers
her eyes begin shedding tears
it’s been eleven years
where’s your mother
there’s something that she must hear
you missed her by a couple years
mom had an agonizing rough time
raising me all by herself
while daddy wasn’t here
she was drinking and smoking
behind the wheel ‘cause she was stressed out
her car flipped upside down
and she dead now
we fell into each other’s arms
i feel the guilty responsibility
for all my daughters losses
and it k!lls me asking for
forgiveness that i don’t deserve
cara, this is what i’ve learned
trying not to turn things upside down
was extremely hard
till i thought about the number eight
and i realized turning things upside down
doesn’t change what they really are
cara leads me back to the kitchen
and shows me a miraculous image
the upside down photo of my hot wife
and my eight year old daughter cara
on the ‘frigerator
still there after all these years
my wife looks back as a bawl these tears
i turn the pic rightside up
and i know that i still can save her

[verse 7]
eight years later
cara’s graduating from college
she gon’ be a psychiatrist
after gaining her doctorate
and now she’s got a family all her own
i’m unfathomably proud of
how much she’s grown
she hasn’t had a reason to cry
for a while now
i turned her frown upside down
it’s a smile now
my demons keep me company
but knowing that i’m wiser now
comforts me
i’ve learned so much from my suffering
and here’s the lesson that i take from that
literally f-ck that drake track
