The Pharcyde - Runnin'

[Intro]
Come on, come on, come on, come on, come on
Uh huh , Check it out, check it out
One-two one-two one-two one-two one two
Check the sound, check the sound, check the sound yeah
One-two one-two one-two one-two one two
Check the sound, check the sound, check the sound yeah
One-two one-two one-two one-two one two
Check the sound, check the sound, check the sound yeah
One-two one-two one-two one-two one two

[Hook]
Can't keep running away
Can't keep running away
Can't keep running away
Can't keep running away

[Verse 1: Fatlip]
I must admit on some occasions
I went out like a punk and a chump
Or a sucka or something to that effect
Respect I used to never get
Cause all I got was upset
When niggas used to be like
("What's up, fool?! Nigga, what's up?!")
And tried to sweat a nigga like the Lip
For no reason at all I can recall niggas throwing Cs in my face
Down the hall I'm kickin' it in the back of the school eating chicken at three
Wondering, "Why is everybody always pickin' on me?
I tried to talk and tell them, chill, I did nothin' to deserve this
But when it didn't work, I wasn't scared, just real nervous and unprepared
To deal with scrappin' no doubt
My pappy never told me how to knock a nigga out
But now in '95 I must survive as a man on my own
Fuck around with Fatlip, yes, ya get blown
I'm not tryin' to show no macho is shown
But when it's on, if it's on, then it's on

"Runnin'" is a song performed by The Pharcyde and produced by J Dilla. Released in 1995. He sampled “Rock Box” by RUN DMC, its “Run” part that plays during the hook. The song has become an anthem of sorts when it comes to those who were bullied. It also appeared in the 2002 film 8 Mile, and is featured on the "More Music From 8 Mile" soundtrack.
