All alone, trying to hide from the shadows
Ain't no use, it seems everywhere they follow
They know where I be at
In my mind tryna get me
He is running away from the darkness that lives inside him, the darkness could be drugs or the loneliness he always faces. He tries to hide in his mind but it always finds him eventually.
Also, he plays on the ‘sinners’ from the previous line. He seems to want to fade out of the limelight and watchful eyes of the media and society and back into the cover of the shadows. But it isn’t any use trying to escape people, because now that he’s famous people know him wherever he goes, making it difficult to get some alone time. So he retreats to the recesses of his mind while they try and affect his thinking.
