Stand for something, or fall for anything
And you working with two left feet at the skating rink

from Kendrick Lamar (Ft. GLC) – Poe Man's Dreams (His Vice) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Be somebody or you’re bound to fall for anything, like someone who can’t skate.

This saying has many variations:

If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.

                         - Alexander Hamilton

A man who hasn’t found something he is willing to die for is not fit to live.

                         - Martin Luther King, Jr.

One of Lamar’s mentors, Dr. Dre, also used this line at the end of “Been There, Done That.” .
