Lyrics:

[Verse 1: 2Pac] Resist the temptation of the beast
You slip and loose your grip, and forever fall asleep
The venom is contagious, be wary of its spell
What you thought would be heaven, turns out to be hell
I wonder if she knows, the devil’s taking off her clothes
Deep into her soul, slow, now he’s in control
Poppa’s doing worse, a victim of his deadly curse
Wouldn’t be the first, to leave the ghetto in a hearse
Oh and how it hurts, the children pay the biggest price
Never get the chance to grow up with a happy life
Blame it on the rock, but we know that’s a bunch of crap
Someone from the top, supplying us with plenty crack
Keep ’em in a daze, don’t let them see the other way
Let ’em all get paid, won’t live to see another day
See, they never got a breath of the sunshine
Now the kid’s addicted and only hit it one time
We’re destined to be dead as a nation
Don’t let it come to this, resist the temptation
[Hook: Amel Larrieux] From pyramid top to bottom of bowl
From whips and locks to fist and afro
We dug too deep to give up this gold
Don’t be bought, and you won’t be sold
Running on empty, you ain’t gon’ go
Running on empty, lead you to nowhere
We fact, nobody can lie
So resist the temptation

[Verse 2: 2Pac] Gamble for your soul with the devil
You wonder how low, can you go, before you finally reach the lowest level
As everybody sit and stares
There’s no use looking in your eyes cause there isn’t anybody there
And though it may make you wanna cry
Got you stealing from your family and you don’t even know why
I guess you think they’ll understand
You feel cold, cause you sold your soul to the dopeman
Oh now there’s no turning back, in fact
I’s decided, that would live and die for the crack
You got no friends cause you cheated ’em all
Feel lonely, low, defeated and small
No one was there when I took the wrong path
And nobody’d care if I died in a blood bath
But is this my destiny?
Tell the lord they got my mind, but he can have the rest of me
Cause I’m ready to end it all
One bullet to the brain, forgive my sins and all
I didn’t mean to be a bother
A failure as a son, a husband and a father
I wish I could turn back the time
Go back and find, why I let it crack my mind
And my only explanation, it came to this
Resist the temptation
