In the event of my demise 
when my heart can beat no more
I hope I die for a principle 
Or a belief that I have lived for
I will die before my time
 Because I feel the shadow's depth 
So much I wanted to accomplish 
 Before I reached my death 
I have to come to grips with the possibility 
And wiped the last tear from my eyes
I loved all who were positive 
In the event of my demise 

In the event of my demise don't shed no tear
I'll share my wisdom with the world, they'll know I was here
Know I was clear, every thing I said I meant 
A outlaw, when I was born they prepared my ditch 
Said I won't live long, statistic showed
I'm tryna past 24 realistic goal, listen all
You gotta stay cold inside 
That's what I tell myself when I feel alone sometime
But I can't cry, I don't tear no more
I love god, from death I don't fear no more
A part taken in this movement to better my people  Though they see me on TV, I tell them we equal 
Don't look at me as a stranger, I'm one of your own
We was rised in concrete and grew as a rose
 Still I rise, but never get a chance to fly
Mama please don't cry 
In the event of my demise 

In the event of my demise 
can't breathe no more
hope I die for a principle 
 something I lived for
 dying before my time
feel the shadows of depth  Trying to fulfill all my dreams before I reach my death 
came to grips with the possibility 
The world's killing me, and my soldiers die young with no sympathy 
I wipe the last tear from my eyes
I loved all who stand strong
In the event of my demise 

If I should die before I awake 
let my family be straight of the money I make
Give my son, what he needs, other than his father 
Is it self respect, better get his honor 
with the law come to swallow my soul, it's so big
 Cause the street took enough of my life, we all see
It's a cycle make you feel psycho  Everything struggles behind this man, see nobody love you
Got a piece of the streets and it's gonna die with me
may your, soul forgive me
Makaveli's within me
In principle we stand by stronger than power 
We gon' die by the rules you can never devour
On the earth from my birth fell nothing but pain
Only thing I ever gave was the baby the name
That's my heart, and if I should go I'll go on in sparks 
That's the event of my demise, and it lurks in the dark

[Chorus]

Now as I stand here, a man here
Not a perfect one, but a searching one
Seek in another, blazing time
 Sound crazy but I'm actually tryin' to escape my mind
 Tryna rise in time
but hoping that you didn't notice 
When i was at my low as
So I knew they were watching, I couldn't stop it
So many things I wanted to accomplish 
Too many dreams, wasted with no promise 
From out the darkness I struggle to see the light  Rumble deep in the night 
Hustlin' with all of my might 
Some won't see it that way
But us is given praise
But all of them will dream 
That I did it my way
In the event of my demise 

I was born to a storm that won't lead up
And I was raised to stay brave with my head up
But thing ain't got better 
We still gettin' wetter in this bad weather 
I need more than a sweater and a leather 
Yo, ain't nothin' meant to last forever 
So the struggling and the ?starving? ain't gon' last forever 
And my will, probably be like two lines long
It will read I'm dead but my soul lives on
And my spirit still living though my body is gone
In the event of my demise I love all who stay strong 
I love all who stay strong 
In the event of my demise, com'on

In the event of my demise 
when my heart can beat no more
I hope I die for a principle 
Or a belief that I have lived for
I will die before my time
 Because I feel the shadow's depth 
So much I wanted to accomplish 
 Before I reached my death 
I have to come to grips with the possibility 
And wiped the last tear from my eyes
I loved all who were positive 
In the event of my demise
