    See to live is to suffer but to survive
    well that's to find meaning in the suffering.

    Ay yo Im slippin Im fallin I cant get up (x2)
    -- I gots to get up
    Get back on my feet so I can tear shit up!

    I been through mad different phases like mazes
    to find my way & now I know that happy days are not far away
    If I'm strong enough Ill live long enough to see my kids
    doing something more constructive with they time
    than bids I know because I been there
    now Im in there sit back & look
    at what it took for me to get there
    First came the bullshit: the drama with my mama
    she got on some fly shit so I split
    and said that Ima be that seed
    that doesnt need much to succeed
    strapped with mad greed and a heart that doesnt bleed
    I'm ready for the world or at least I thought I was
    baggin niggas when I caught a buzz
    for thinking about how short I was
    Going too fast it wouldnt last but yo I couldnt tell
    group homes & institutions, prepare my ass for jail
    They put me in a situation forcin me to be a man
    when I was just learnin to stand without a helpin hand
    Damn, was it my fault, somethin I did
    to make a father leave his first kid at 7 doin my first bid?
    Back on the scene at 14 with a scheme
    to get more green than I'd ever seen in a dream
    and by all means I will be living high off the hog
    and I never gave a fuck about much but my dog
    That's my only mutha-fucka I had offered my last
    Just another little nigga headed nowhere fast

    That aint the half "uhh!" Shit gets worse as I get older
    actions become bolder heart got colder
    chip on my shoulder that I dared a nigga to touch
    didn't need a click cause I scared a nigga that much
    One deep with the pitch startin' shit for kicks
    catchin' vicks throwin' bricks gettin by bein' slick
    used to get high to get by used to have to (sounds like) "buff my hell" in the morning before I could fly
    I ate something a couple of forties made me hate somethin
    I did some coke now I'm ready to take somethin
