    Lyrics

    In the event of my demise
    when my heart can beat no more
    I hope I die for a principle
    Or a belief that I have lived for
    I will die before my time
    Because I feel the shadow's depth
    So much I wanted to accomplish
    Before I reached my death
    I have to come to grips with the possibility
    And wiped the last tear from my eyes
    I loved all who were positive
    In the event of my demise

    In the event of my demise don't shed no tear
    I'll share my wisdom with the world, they'll know I was here
    Know I was clear, every thing I said I meant
    A outlaw, when I was born they prepared my ditch
    Said I won't live long, statistic showed
    I'm tryna past 24 realistic goal, listen all
    You gotta stay cold inside
    That's what I tell myself when I feel alone sometime
    But I can't cry, I don't tear no more
    I love god, from death I don't fear no more
    A part taken in this movement to better my people
    Though they see me on TV, I tell them we equal
    Don't look at me as a stranger, I'm one of your own
    We was rised in concrete and grew as a rose
    Still I rise, but never get a chance to fly
    Mama please don't cry
    In the event of my demise

    In the event of my demise
    can't breathe no more
    hope I die for a principle
    something I lived for
    dying before my time
    feel the shadows of depth
    Trying to fulfill all my dreams before I reach my death
    came to grips with the possibility
    The world's killing me, and my soldiers die young with no sympathy
    I wipe the last tear from my eyes
    I loved all who stand strong
    In the event of my demise

    If I should die before I awake
    let my family be straight of the money I make
    Give my son, what he needs, other than his father
    Is it self respect, better get his honor
    with the law come to swallow my soul, it's so big
    Cause the street took enough of my life, we all see
    It's a cycle make you feel psycho
    Everything struggles behind this man, see nobody love you
    Got a piece of the streets and it's gonna die with me
    may your, soul forgive me
    Makaveli's within me
    In principle we stand by stronger than power
    We gon' die by the rules you can never devour
    On the earth from my birth fell nothing but pain
    Only thing I ever gave was the baby the name
    That's my heart, and if I should go I'll go on in sparks
    That's the event of my demise, and it lurks in the dark

    [Chorus]

    Now as I stand here, a man here
    Not a perfect one, but a searching one
    Seek in another, blazing time
    Sound crazy but I'm actually tryin' to escape my mind
    Tryna rise in time
    but hoping that you didn't notice
    When i was at my low as
    So I knew they were watching, I couldn't stop it
    So many things I wanted to accomplish
    Too many dreams, wasted with no promise
    From out the darkness I struggle to see the light
    Rumble deep in the night
    Hustlin' with all of my might
    Some won't see it that way
    But us is given praise
    But all of them will dream
    That I did it my way
    In the event of my demise

    I was born to a storm that won't lead up
    And I was raised to stay brave with my head up
    But thing ain't got better
    We still gettin' wetter in this bad weather
    I need more than a sweater and a leather
    Yo, ain't nothin' meant to last forever
    So the struggling and the ?starving? ain't gon' last forever
    And my will, probably be like two lines long
    It will read I'm dead but my soul lives on
    And my spirit still living though my body is gone
    In the event of my demise I love all who stay strong
    I love all who stay strong
    In the event of my demise, com'on

    In the event of my demise
    when my heart can beat no more
    I hope I die for a principle
    Or a belief that I have lived for
    I will die before my time
    Because I feel the shadow's depth
    So much I wanted to accomplish
    Before I reached my death
    I have to come to grips with the possibility
    And wiped the last tear from my eyes
    I loved all who were positive
    In the event of my demise
