Know they’ll lock me if I stay
But where I’mma run to
I got a good girl, we got a son too
And all we went through, we ain’t see eye-to-eye
He’s aware that if he stays in town he’ll have to go to prison but he doesn’t know what other option he has as he has nowhere to flee to.
He also says he has a girlfriend and a son with her which is another reason he can’t run even though he’ll be put in prison. Him and the girl have been through a lot together and no longer agree on everything but he still loves her and doesn’t want to leave her and their child.
