Runnin' (Dying To Live)

This song is by 2Pac, features The Notorious B.I.G. and appears on the movie soundtrack Tupac: Resurrection (2003).

Original video
Between you and Biggie was like who gon', who gon'
Who rules the entertainment industry, basically
I was like this, is like a fuckin' election, you know what I'm sayin'?

It is, it is that me and Biggie situation was smaller
Than that me and Biggie situation was like

Why am I fighting to live if I 'm just living to fight?
Why am I trying to see when there ain't nothing in sight?
Why am I trying to give when no-one gives me a try?
Why am I dying to live if I'm just living to die?

Check it, I grew up a fucking screw up
Got introduced to the game got an ounce and fucking blew up
Chopping rocks over night
The nigga Biggie Smalls trying to turn into black Frank White

We had a code dress to change our description
Two cops is on the milk box missing
Showed they codes know they got stepped on
A fist full of bullets, a chest full of Teflon

Run from the police, picture that
Nigga I'm too fat, I fuck around and catch an asthma attack
That's why I bust back and don't face me
When he drop take his glock and I'm swayze

Celebrate my escape, sold a glock
Bust some weight, lay back I got some money to make
Motherfucker

Why am I fighting to live if I'm just living to fight?
Why am I trying to see when there ain't nothing in sight?
Why am I trying to give when no-one gives me a try?
Why am I dying to live if I'm just living to die? (It's on me)

But still I'm having memories of high speed when the cops crash
As I laugh pushing the gas while my glocks blast
We was young and we was dumb but we had heart
In the dark will we survive through the bad parts

Many dreams is what I had and plenty wishes
No hesitation in extermination of these snitches
Envious bitches, they still continue to pursue me
A couple movies now the whole worlds trying to screw me

Even the cops trying to sue me, so what can I do but stay true
Sippin' twenty two's of brew
And now the media is trying to test me
Got the prest asking question, tryin' to stress me

Misery is all I see, that's my mind state
My history with the police's shake the crime rate
My main man had two strikes, slip got arrested and flipped
He screamed "Thug life!" and emptied a clip
Got shot runnin' from the police

Why am I fighting to live if I 'm just living to fight?
Why am I trying to see when there ain't nothing in sight?
Why am I trying to give when no-one gives me a try?
Why am I dying to live if I'm just living to die?

I was shocked at everything, know what I'm sayin'?
But I wasn't more shocked of him dying
I was more shocked at him

Pac is a strong dude, you know, I know, dude, know what I'm sayin'?
He's real strong
So when they was like he got shot I was more like "Again?"
Huh, you know what I'm sayin'?

He always gettin' shot or shot at
He gon' pull through this one again
Make a few records about it and it's goin’ to be over
You know what I'm sayin'?

But he when he died I was like "Oh!"
You know what I'm sayin'?
But even though we was going through our drama
I will never wish death on nobody, you know
'Cause they be coming back from death
