But every time I let it go
It seems it's tryna let me know
From life or death it might just be the difference for me

Meaning

He’s addicted to Nicotine, it’s got him feining for it. Even though he wishes he could kick the habit easily he can’t. When he tries, it reminds him that it’s basically the thing killin him or helpin him live longer if he quits.

He’s also speaking on the gun he bought to protect himself. While he feels guns are corrupting him and his city, he has a hard time letting go of it because it may be his lifeline in a time of need.
