Fighting temptation, have an apple
Shakes the snakes, pip the system
Let's get into it, tabernacle
Religious theme here as Lupe warns us against temptation before offering us an apple(commonly seen as the fruit that led to the first sin). Snakes/tabernacle continues the religious theme.
Pip the system (linked to the apple in the previous line) — to be pipped is to be beaten in a competition or race by a very small amount.
When it says “Shake the Snakes,” the foes of the GI Joes were the “Cobras.”
