    Got stuck between good and evil everyday
    What I can, I can not say
    I won't fight it anymore
    I can't fight it anymore
    Gotta keep my head high above the clouds
    Cause when it's low it brings me down
    I won't fight it anymore
    I can't fight it anymore
    Ohhhhh-ohhhh, ohhhh-ohhhhh
    Ohhhhh-ohhhh, ohhhh-ohhhhh

    [Verse 1]
    Bite my tongue's all I did back in grade school
    Back in class, I was smart but I played fool
    And turnin felon at sixteen was so cool
    Cause you don't know what you missin when they was broke too
    And I'm stuck (Between good and evil everyday)
    Some of my favorite rappers told me that crime pay
    I'm glad I learned not to follow what every rhyme say
    I gotta always have a do what's right, mindstate
    I promise (I won't fight it anymore)
    And why should I, well damn it how could I
    If I don't trust me, then how will I know how good I-
    Ever could be, just a G in the hood, high
    They told me keep it real, forever rep ya clique
    For every whoopin don't deserve the same size, switch
    I pray to know the difference, and never lose sight
    I told my brother only keep it real when it's right
    He told me

    [Hook]
    Got stuck between good and evil everyday
    What I can, I can not say
    I won't fight it anymore
    I can't fight it anymore

    [Verse 2]
    I'm feelin like I can take on the whole planet, can't nobody stop me
    These haters wanna see me fail, well damn it they can watch me
    From the paparazzi, seventy, come back like it's Rocky
    And no I'm not Apollo creed, I'm more like El Mariachi
    A desperado wake and sauce
    And all this ain't Versaci
    My word and my balls all I got, you think I'm cocky
    But never mind, I came to grind
    I'm thinkin like a ponzi-
    Scheme when I flip my cheese and swisher sweet to broccoli
    We hotter than hibachi, super crunchy Saki
    Patience and persistence what my grandpapa taught me
    Somebody musta put me here to break up the monotony
    I humbly decline to be the boss, it's way to costly

    [Hook]
    Got stuck between good and evil everyday
    What I can, I can not say
    I won't fight it anymore
    I can't fight it anymore

    [Verse 3]
    Heeeeeeeeyyyy
    Prayer, mama say there's power in it
    Pain, God is how she deal with it
    Struggle, she wanted better for her children
    Hustle, that ain't the way Jesus did it
    Violence, Martin Luther woulda been against it
    Fellow man, the Beatles made us all feel it
    Within, that's where you gotta have it
    Or bendin in, ask God and you shall have it
    Trials, that's just a test of your faith
    Vow, to talk with him all the way
    Thirst, to want what I work for
    Sustain, to show you what I'm made of

    [Hook]
    Got stuck between good and evil everyday
    What I can, I can not say
    I won't fight it anymore
    I can't fight it anymore
    Gotta keep my head high above the clouds
    Cause when it's low it brings me down
    I won't fight it anymore
    I can't fight it anymore
    Ohhhhh-ohhhh, ohhhh-ohhhhh
    Ohhhhh-ohhhh, ohhhh-ohhhhh

    Got stuck between good and evil everyday
    What I can, I can not say
    I won't fight it anymore
    I can't fight it anymore
    Gotta keep my head high above the clouds
    Cause when it's low it brings me down
    I won't fight it anymore
    I can't fight it anymore
    Ohhhhh-ohhhh, ohhhh-ohhhhh
    Ohhhhh-ohhhh, ohhhh-ohhhhh
