Down for the count on seven chickenshits don't get to heaven

from The Pharcyde – Runnin' Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Dude’s knocked out, on a seven-count (a boxing reference).

When you feel like you are out of the fight, remind yourself:
You have got to face your fears if you want to find peace.
Want to get into heaven? You can’t be a truly good, upright person if you’re too afraid to step up when it counts.
And when you can depend on yourself, you gain self-acceptance. That’s peace of mind, or “heaven on earth”, enlightenment. You gotta work to get that, son.
