Ha ha ha ha ha ha uhh
See to live is to suffer but to survive
Well that's to find meaning in the suffering.

[Chorus]
Ay yo I'm slippin' I'm fallin' I can't get up
Ay yo I'm slippin' I'm fallin' I can't get up
Ay yo I'm slippin' I'm fallin' I gots to get up
Get me back on my feet so I can tear **** up!
Get me back on my feet so I can tear **** up!

I been through mad different phases like Masons
To find my way & now I know that happy days are not far away
If I'm strong enough I'll live long enough to see my kids
Doing something more constructive with they time
Than bids I know because I been there
Now I'm 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 the fly **** until I split
And said that I'ma be that seed
That doesn't need much to succeed
Strapped with mad greed and a heart that doesn't bleed
I'm ready for the world or at least I thought I was
Baggin' *****s when I caught a buzz
For thinking about how short I was
Going too fast it wouldn't last but yo I couldn't tell
Group homes & institutions, prepare my *** 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 cream 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 **** about much but my dog
That's my only **********a I had offered my last
Just another little ***** headed nowhere fast

[Chorus]

That ain't the half **** get's worse as I get older
Actions become bolder heart got colder
Chip on my shoulder that I dared a ***** to touch
Didn't need a click cause I scared a ***** that much
One deep went to for kicks
Catchin' vicks throwin' bricks gettin by bein' slick
Used to get high just to get by used to have to puff my L
In the morning before I get fly
I ate something a couple of forties made me hate somethin'
I did some coke now I'm ready to take something
3 years later showing signs of stress
Didn't keep my hair cut or give a **** how I dressed
I'm possessed by the darker side livin' the cruddy life
**** like this kept a ***** with a bloody knife
Wanna make records but I'm ****ing it up
I'm slippin' I'm fallin' I can't get up

[Chorus]

Wasn't long before I hit rock bottom
*****s talking **** like damn look how that rock got him
Open like a window no more Indo look at a video
Sayin' to myself that could've been yo on the TV
Believe me it could be done somethin's got to give
It's got to change cause I've got a son
I've got to do the right thing for shorty
And that means no more getting high drinking forties
So I get back lookin' type slick again
Fake *****s jump back on my **** again
Nothin' but love for those that know how it feel
& much respect to all my *****s that kept it real
Kept a ***** strong kept a ***** from doin wrong
*****s know who they is and this is yo ****in' song
And to my boo who stuck with a ***** through
All the bullshit you'll get yours because it's due

[Chorus]

Can't get up I gots to get up
This is from the heart baby, don't get it twisted
Ah X rated!
