Only God Can Judge Me

No more hesitation, each and every black male’s trapped / And they wonder why we suicidal running ’round strapped
Only God can judge me
Is that right?
(Only God can judge me now)
Only God baby, nobody else, nobody else
All you other motherfuckers get out my business
(Only God can judge me now)

Perhaps I was blind to the facts, stabbed in the back
I couldn’t trust my own homies, just a bunch of dirty rats
Will I succeed?
Paranoid from the weed
And hocus pocus, I try to focus, but I can’t see
And in my mind I’m a blind man doin’ time
Look to my future, cause my past is all behind me
Is it a crime to fight for what is mine?
Everybody’s dyin’, tell me what’s the use of tryin’
I’ve been trapped since birth, cautious cause I’m cursed
And fantasies of my family in a hearse
And they say it’s the White man I should fear
But it’s my own kind doin’ all the killin’ here
I can’t lie, ain’t no love for the other side
Jealousy inside, make ’em wish I died
Oh my Lord, tell me what I’m livin’ for
Everybody’s droppin’, got me knockin’ on Heaven’s door
And all my memories of seein’ brothers bleed
And everybody grieves, but still nobody sees
Recollect your thoughts, don’t get caught up in the mix
cause the media is full of dirty tricks
Only God can judge me

[Chorus - with variations] (x3)
(Only God can judge me, only God)
[2Pac]	Only God can judge me
(Only God can judge me)


I hear the doctor standin’ over me, screamin’ I can make it
Got a body full of bullet holes, layin’ here naked
Still I can’t breathe, something’s evil in my IV
Cause everytime I breathe I think they killin’ me
I’m havin’ nightmares, homicidal fantasies
I wake up stranglin’, dangled in my bed sheets
I call the nurse cause it hurts to reminisce
How did it come to this? I wish they didn’t miss
Somebody help me, tell me where to go from here
Cause even thugs cry, but do the Lord care?
Try to remember but it hurts
I’m walkin’ through the cemetery, talkin’ to the dirt
I’d rather die like a man than live like a coward
There’s a ghetto up in Heaven and it’s ours
“Black Power!” is what we scream
As we dream in a paranoid state
And our fate is a lifetime of hate
Dear Mama, can you save me?
And fuck peace cause the streets got our babies
We gotta eat
No more hesitation, each and every black male’s trapped
And they wonder why we suicidal running ’round strapped
Mr. Police, please try to see
That there’s a million motherfuckers stressin’ just like me

[Chorus - with variations] (x3)

That which does not kill me can only make me stronger
(That’s for real)
And I don’t see why everybody feel as though
That they gotta tell me how to live my life
(You know?)
Let me live, baby, let me live

[Rappin’ 4-Tay]
Pac, I feel ya, keep servin’ it on the reala
For instance, say a playa-hatin’ mark is out to kill ya
Would you be wrong for buckin’ a nigga to the pavement?
He gon’ get me first, if I don’t get him fool start prayin’
Ain’t no such thing as self-defense in the court of law
So judge us when we get to where we’re goin wearin’ a cross
That’s real, got him, lurked him, crept the fuck up on him
Sold a half a million tapes, now everybody want him
After talkin’ behind my back like a bitch would
Tellin’ them niggas, “You can fade himž
Punk, I wish you would
It be them same motherfuckers in your face
That’ll rush up in your place to get your safe
Knowin’ you on that paper chase
Grass, glass, big screen and leather couch
My new shit is so fetti, already sold a ki or ounce
Bitch, remember 2Pac and 4-Tay
The same two brothers dodgin’ bullets, representin’ the Bay
Pac, when you was locked down
That’s when I’ll be around
Start climbin’ up the charts, so sick, but they tried to clown
That’s why they ride the bandwagon
Still be draggin’, sellin’ lies
Don’t think I don’t see you haters, I know y’all in disguise

Guess you figure you know me, cause I’m a thug
That love to hit the late night club drink and buzzed
Been livin’ lavish like a player all day
Now I’m bout to floss ’em off, player shit with 4-Tay

[Chorus - with variations] (repeat until end)

[Spoek over chorus]
Only God man
That right?
That’s real
Fuck everybody else, you know what I’m sayin’?
Man, look here, man
My only fear of death
Is comin’ back to these streets reincarnated, man
That’s for the homie mental
We up out
