Can't keep runnin' away

I must admit on some occasions I went out like a punk 
And a chump or a sucka or something to that effect 
Respect I usedto never get when all I got was upset 
When niggas use to be like 'What's up fool!' and tried 
To seat a nigga like the Lip for no reason at all I can 
Recall crip niggas throwin' see in my face down the hall 
I'm kickin' it in the back of the school eatin' chicken at 
Three, wonderin' why is everybody always pickin' on me 
I tried to talk and tell tham chill I did nothing to deserve 
This But when it didn't work I wasn't scared just real 
Nervous and unprepared to deal with scrappin' no doubt 
'cause my pappy never told me how to knock a nigga out 
But now in 95 I must survive as a man on my own F*ck 
Around with Fatlip yes ya get blown I'm not tryin to show 
No macho is shown but when it's on, if it's on, then it's on! 

There comes a time in every mans life when he's gotta 
Handle up on his own Can't depend on friends to 
Help you in a sqeeze, please they got problems of their 
Own Down for the count on seven chickens shits don't 
Get to heaven til they faced these fears in these fear 
Zones Used to get jacked back in high school I played 
It cool just so some real shit won't get full blown Being 
Where I'm from they let the smoke come quicker than an 
Evil red-neck could lynch a helpless colored figure And 
As a victim I invented low-key til the keyhole itself got 
Lower than me So I stood up and let my free form form 
Free I don't sweat it I let the bullshit blow in the breeze 
In other words just freeze 

It's 1995 now that I'm older stress weighs on my shoulders 
Heavy as boulders but I told ya 
Till the day that I die I still will be a soldier and that's all I told 
Ya and that's all I showed ya 
And all this calamity is rippin' my sanity 
Can it be I'm a celebrity 
Whose on the brink of insanity 
Now don't be wishin's of switchin' any positions with me 
'cause when you in my position, it ain't never easy 
To do any type of maintaining 'cause all this gaming and famin' from 
Entertainin' is hella straining to the brain and,
But I can't keep runnin' I just gotta keep keen and cunnin'
