This ain't livin Lyrics by 2Pac (Tupac Shakur) 



This ain't livin by 2Pac (Tupac Shakur)


Intro -

this ain't livin;

1st Verse -

nigga;
i hear even the smaller 'g's be dippin' Chevy Impalas;
while flossin' they gold d's;
o.g's is who they follow;
we swallow tomorrow's seeds;
what we leave is hollow;
we feed violence and greed;
let 'em lead tomorrow;
in time they grippin' nines;
sippin' wine they wild;
still I be starin';
watch the parents sacrifice they child;
the love's gone;
a thug's home;
with no love feelin' so strong;
make young boys in the club dealers;
now one's for adolescents;
now dose for doughs;
keep your friends by your side;
even close your foes;
now three for johnny law;
tryin' to take my chips;
i never pulled the trigger;
didn't touch that b**ch;
throw your hands in the air;
it's a robbery;
_________ think of Pac;
would you ride with me?;
let's go see what our enemies talkin' 'bout;
when 'g's enter the house nobody's walkin' out;
this ain't livin;
it's similar to prison;
we're trapped;
my homies jealous plus they tell us that the phones is tapped;
i watch my back twenty-four seven;
and never let a busta send a 'g' to ghetto heaven;
y-ou know;
this is how it goes;
when we floss with flows;
before I toss your hoes;
it would cost you mo';
i do shows;
make a lotta dough;
murder my foes;
but i'd give it all up - if it would help you grow;
this ain't livin;

Hook 1 -

(singer)
takes a life to make a life;
livin in a world of crime -
and I -
can't find a better way to breakthrough;
(Pac)
this ain't livin;
(singer)
this ain't livin' - i gotta do what i gotta do;
(Pac)
this ain't livin;
(singer)
takes a life to make a life;
livin in a world of crime -
and I -
can't find a better way to breakthrough;
this ain't livin' - i gotta do what i gotta do;

2nd verse -

peep;
gunfire is produced at alarmin' rates;
today's youth quick to shoot;
get in the car and break;
it takes a nation of millions;
if we intend to stop the killin';
just search your feelin's;
participation should be appealin';
they our seeds;
and when they bleed we bleed;
that's what becomes of lonely children;
they turn to 'g's;
heavenly father can you rescue?;
my young nation - rest;
the lord will protect you;
respect due;
not a threat;
as i step in blue;
and check those that opposed when i froze them fools;
and who are you - to watch me fall father;
i disappeared and reappeared as the _____________;
(my guess is "as the Don Killuminati")
follow me now;
skippin' class and livin' fast;
will get your ass;
stuck in the pen;
doin' life plus ten;
young brother pump your brakes for me;
before you choke;
won't you soak up some game from your big homie;
this ain't livin';
we givin' you jewels;
use 'em as tools;
explode on the industry;
and fade them fools;
you know the rules;
gotta be a ridah;
you can run the redlights but read the street signs;
hey;
this for all of y'all to keep on raisin' hell;
put a pistol in your hand and let you fade yourself;
it ain't right;
what you put your mama through;
young 'g';
gotta change your life;
take the game from me;
this ain't livin';
