Death Around The Corner

Death Around The Corner

2Pac

Why you by the window?, what's wrong daddy?

I know what's wrong with that crazy motherf***er
He's just stand by the goddamn window
With that f***in' AK all day
You don't work, you don't f***, you don't,
You don't do a goddamn thing

I see death around the corner, gotta stay high while I survive
In the city where the skinny n****s die
If they bury me, bury me as a G n****, no need to worry
I expect retaliation in a hurry

I see death around the- corner, any day
Trying to keep it together, no one lives forever anyway
Strugglin' and strivin', my destiny's to die
Keep my finger on the trigger, no mercy in my eyes

In a ball of confusion, I think about my daddy
Madder than a motherf***er, they never should of had me
I guess I seen too many murders, the doctors can't help me
Got me stressin' with my pistol in my sheets, it ain't healthy

Am I paranoid? - Tell me the truth
I'm out the window with my AK, ready to shoot
Ran out of endo and my mind can't take the stress,
I'm out of breath

Make me wanna kill my damn self,
But I see death around the corner

[Chorus]
(When we were kids, belonging felt good)
I see death around the corner
(But having respect, that feels even better)
I see death around the corner
(When we were kids, belonging felt good)
I see death around the corner
(But having respect, that feels even better)

I see death around the corner,
The pressure's getting to me
I no longer trust my homies,
Them phonies tried to do me

Smoking too much weed,
Got me paranoid, stressed
Pack a gat and my vest,
Under my clothes when I dress

Here's hopin' I die the way I lived,
Straight thuggin'
Huggin' my trigger for all them n****s
Who was buggin'

My homie told me once,
Don't you trust them other suckers
They fought like they your homies
But they phony motherf***ers

And even if I did die young, who cares
All I ever got was mean mugs and cold stares
I got homies in my head
Who done pa**ed away screamin, please

Young n****, make Gs
I can't give up, although I'm hopeless,
I think my mind's gone
All I can do is get my grind on, death around the corner

[Chorus]

I was raised in the city, s***ty
Ever since I was an itty bitty kitty
Drinkin' liquor out my momma's titty
And smokin' weed was an everyday thang in my household,

And drinking liquor til' you out cold
And tho' I'm gone now, n**** it's still on- Pow
Bustin' on them n****s til they gone
How many more jealous a** b****es, comin for my riches

Now I gotta stay suspicious when I bone
'Cause if I ain't sharp and heartless,
Them b****es will start s***
Excuse me, but this is where we part b****

No more game for free, please explain to me
Why n****s trip b****, who you came to see?
Murderin' now but see me later man, as for my pops
I got homies that will hunt you til you drop

I hope the Lord will forgive me, I was a G
And gettin' high was a way of gettin' free
I see death around the corner

[Chorus]

This is for all the real mothaf***in' n****s out there
I know you ain't scared to die
We all gotta go, ya know ?
A real motherf***er will pick the time he goes

And make sure he handles his motherf***in business
Y'all n****s stop acting like pussies out there,
Alright

I'm tired off getting ripped off by guys like that

I want his family dead, I want his house burned to the ground
I want to got there in the middle of the night,
I wanna piss on his head
I want his family dead, I want his house burned to the ground
I want to got there in the middle of the night,
I wanna piss on his head

I want that sonova b**** dead, I want him dead
I want him dead, I don't care
