Apollo Brown & Che Noir – Live By The Code Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Yo, I was still working a nine-to-five
[❓❓] was attracted to thugs and flyest guys
Back when my occupation was being his ride-or-die
But now we're autistic 'cause it's hard to see eye-to-eye
Look, I'm on a different type of time
Ain't ready to be his housewife or bride
Was around five or nine, felt my who purpose defined
But I had no attempt to fill they shoes
I'd rather go find my size
Never understood when rappers got a nice [❓❓] stacks
Then they spend it all on clothes and nice fancy bags
Keys told me, "Save your money, you can buy land with that. But if you go broke, don't and blame the white man for that."
They use our face as a token and show blacks get support
We play dumb but we know what it's actually for
But in order to beat the system, you gon' have to conform
Be a wolf in sheep clothes, The Spook Who Sat by the Door

[Chorus]
Live by the code, drive by the foes
[❓❓] by chrome, get advice from the pros
I'ma do it until God says it's time to go
Took a pen, told my thoughts to a pot of gold

Live by the code, drive by the foes
[❓❓] by chrome, get advice from the pros
I'ma do it until God says it's time to go
Took a pen, told my thoughts to a pot of gold
[Verse 2]
Look, [❓❓] 'cause I had to turn them stones that they through to the statue

Words that I spit came from the heart that I rose like a tattoo
I reminisce on all of them days that I was broke, it was past too
With no heat, I wore a coat just to go to the bathroom
[❓❓] right past your ten toes when I pass through
I used to tell jokes in the classroom to cope with the bad mood
My ex told me "Stay alert 'cause popo gonna rush you. And pull in for questions keep your mouth closed when they ask you."
Bitch, I made it out
Standing tall with my right hand guarding the neighbourhood
Black drug dealers was our Santa Claus
Freedom is a privilege that you only get when you train your thoughts
Wisdom is the key to unlock the cuffs when they chain your arms
Yo, you get what you give
Food for thought never spoils if it's been in the fridge
Niggas talk about money they used to get as a kid
But that type of shit don't matter if you can't get it again
Facts!

[Chorus]
Live by the code, drive by the foes
[❓❓] by chrome, get advice from the pros
I'ma do it until God says it's time to go
Took a pen, told my thoughts to a pot of gold

Live by the code, drive by the foes
[❓❓] by chrome, get advice from the pros
I'ma do it until God says it's time to go
Took a pen, told my thoughts to a pot of gold
