[B-Real] I remember times I hustle, times I struggle Times I had to get over the everyday shuffle People tryin' to muffle my thoughts and all my dreams too People who I thought were down, and see true But I blame me too 'cause it's a Chronicle My life, I realize I'm responsible for obstacles In front of me, my own self to blame But I worked hard to receive the wealth and fame It's a worthless game, but if you're willing to play There's sharks in the water who are, willing to pay The price of your soul, but if you give it away You silly motherfuckers are all committed to stay It's a cold world, but you still want a part of it So then you'd better fuck around and learn the art of it Don't walk through life with your blinders on 'cause you'll keep goin' crazy 'til your mind is gone
[Chorus: x2] It Ain't Easy, but you got people tryin', to put you down, believe me I keep gainin' ground, It Ain't Easy How many times, must you deceive me?

[B Real] Times I hated, times I waited Times I went by where I was drunk and faded They said I wouldn't make it, but where are those people now? Still hatin', creatin' all the evil now Your insecurities are showin', exposin' you You're trippin' on me and showin' emotions too Don't you spend your life full of envy, it's deadly Heed me, as I spit the venom believe me
[Sen Dog] I keep my guard up, and always let you see my rage I get pissed, like a pitbull in a cage Not that many can deal with the fury Attack and ransack and kill in a hurry I kill and observe and go in an instant I bring the pain like the ?Rampark? Prison I kept it right for the brother to the Chullo Something I bump when your gates in the ?
