No man is safe from the war going on outside

from Ab-Soul – Pineal Gland Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is in reference to the previous line, you can’t get stuck in the perceptions of a trip because the outside world will still affect you. You are not safe from reality just because you escape it temporarily.

Pulled from context, this is a line about how fucked up the world is right now. Everyone is being affected by the troubles in society, whether it be from crime and poverty, the economy, or actual war. A variation of this line was used in Mobb Deep’s “Survival of the Fittest.” .
