Every time it seems it's alright
Somebody want they soul to rise

Meaning

There’s never been a peaceful time in Jay’s life. Every time life seemed to be becoming easy, someone else would screw it up by bothering Jay with threats and insults. These cause Jay to have to kill someone, causing their soul to rise from their newly dead body to heaven.
