race against time lyrics – ja rule

in my race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life

race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life

god, why the h*ll am i here?
is it a blessin’ or a painful lesson of life and it’s directions?
date of conception, two twenty-nine
i was birthed and won’t be denied

lookin’ into these eyes and witness lives’ tragedies
the boy who made slaves out of men, that’s me
for every lock, there’s a key
the only thing that ever made me click was ‘cash money’

so that i l*st for, be it one of my deadly sins
you know the seven, and i got all of them deep within
sometimes i slip but you be there
pick me up, now i’m on my knees like, what’s up?

’cause only in a world that’s corruptin’ the sick
could you dare to look at my life and call it innocence?
got me to a better sense ’cause whats yours is mine
hear me lord, i’m runnin’ outta time

in my race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life

race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life

n*body cry for me, ’cause i
wanna see you smile for me when i die
look through my windows to the soul
tell me if you see ja livin’ to grow old

cause too many n*gg*s done died for what i hold
the talented warmer world which is so cold
take me, save me, before i’m crazy
the only reason i live is for my baby

never did you tell me that life ain’t a game
maybe if you told me this, sh*t might changed
but now, i’m just racin’ against time tryin’ to survive
and see why y’all n*gg*s drive over n*gg*’s vibe

if you gonna live, know you gonna die
if you gonna steal, know you gotta lie
get drunk and stay high, don’t de-n*gg*-ny
’cause they’ll never take me alive
feel me lord, i’m runnin’ outta time

in my race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life

race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life

i fear’s no man, but when it’s time to go, i’m gone
racin’ through the darkness, learnin’ what’s right from wrong
lookin’ for the light but all i see is the night
when everything else is bright, what happened to my life?

is this what i am, is this what i’ve become?
a n*gg* that don’t give a f*ck about nothin’ and no one
cold, even though i gotta burnin’ desire within my soul
i must set this whole world on fire

if i control my destiny, maybe one day
i’ll give this world the best of me
you know i never been one to judge right or wrong
i embraced and showed you love, then i throw slug’s

at the other side, go get ’em in broad day light
what a n*gg* would give to live my life?
you don’t want it ’cause if you could get it you would try
feel me lord, ja has arrived

in my race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life

race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life

in my race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life

race against time i can’t stop
runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
even if i’m gettin’ too hot
i’ma keep runnin’ through the red light, livin’ my life
