Runnin' Lyrics

Runnin' (奔跑) (Philippians Remix Instrumental) - The Pharcyde

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 ni**a like the Lip for no reason at all I can

Recall crip niggas throwin' c 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

 

Cuz my pappy never told me how to knock a ni**a out

But now in 95 I must survive as a man on my own F**k

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 sh*t 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

Cuz when you in my position it ain't never easy

To do any type of maintaining cuz 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'
