Call me by name
K-A-R-M-A
Nothing you can do or say
To stop what’s coming
So don’t try running
You’ll only be shot dead
Don’t say it’s hate
It’s only what’s right
Justice performed in the night
Evening the field
Shattering the shield
For all your wrong doings

Call me karma
I’m what you fear
When you sleep at night
Know that I’m near
Call me karma
Not what you want
All the wrong you’ve done
Caused me to haunt
Call me karma
I am karma

Cry like a bitch
When you know you’re done
Now say goodbye to your fun
And pray to your god
Towards you I plod
Knowing your god hates you
One final breath
Than retribution
It’s a perfect solution
A cut to the throat
Is all that I wrote
With your poisonous blood

Call me karma
I’m what you fear
When you sleep at night
Know that I’m near
Call me karma
Not what you want
All the wrong you’ve done
Caused me to haunt
Call me karma
I am karma

And it’s about time
Been coming for a while
So walk now with me
Down your final mile
Get down on your knees
And close your dead eyes
The sting of vengeance
Pierces through your lies

Call me karma
I’m what you fear
When you sleep at night
Know that I’m near
Call me karma
Not what you want
All the wrong you’ve done
Caused me to haunt
Call me karma
I am karma
Call me karma
I am the truth
I'm just like the Jonas Brothers,

I'm no longer relevant and write mediocre music.

Just like to point out that this isn't what Karma is. I'm not sure if that was the point or not, but "what goes around comes around" is a common western misinterpretation. Karma is Sanskrit for "action". It literally means that one's actions affect the universe, be it subtly or otherwise. The misinterpretation likely comes from the Buddhist idea that all is connected in the universe. Thus, whatever you do unto another ultimately affects you too. But only in the same way as Newton's third law. There is no overarching sense of justice or just desserts. And sorry about not giving a useful/actual crit. I'm just overly obsessive about this sort of thing. :P

Your last job only paid you $7.00 AUD an hour? That's like $6.05 in the US. What the hell is the minimum wage over there?

You mean his poem/lyrics? Sorry I guess. To be honest, I actually like it quite a bit. Granted, the meter was a bit... off at points, but it was a solid piece. I'm just kind of obsessive about correcting people, especially on grammar and cultural matters. It's just my nature. Sorry if I offended anyone or "killed" the piece.

EDIT: It really doesn't change the meaning/impact of the song at all, since he's not claiming to literally be karma. He's using it as a metaphor for the actual character.
