    Re: difficult sentence

    1)You want me to give up the one thing
    That makes me valuable to the team
    i don't understand to give up
    To relinquish. To abandon.
    No longer to have (or do) whatever it was that made him valuable


    2)Who the hell are you?
    i don't understand this sentence
    The phrase "the hell" is an intensifier
    It means "Who are you?"
    This can be literally understood: The speaker does not know the person he is addressing.
    It can also be rhetorically understood, as a challenge to the other person's legitimacy in saying or doing something --
    - "Who do you think you are to give yourself the liberty to say (do) such a thing!"

    3)I followed that book from Panama city,
    Where James Whistler and I were co-incarcerated,
    To a bus locker in san diego.
    i don't understand locker
    Bus stations used to be equipped with stacked metal storage boxes ("lockers") for the self-storage of extra baggage. You paid a small fee, and got a key to one of these locked boxes.
