Walk like warriors, we were never told to run Be (Intro) by Common

Common walks with the confidence of a warrior marching off to war, implying that he is unafraid of death.

He is also referring to people living in the streets adapting to an environment where running away isn’t an option, who are similar to warriors in the manner that they are both prepared for confront conflict and can’t immediately leave their situations.
