Been tryin' hard not to get into trouble

from Lana Del Rey – Ride Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Lana is striving to be a better person. She is aware that humans are flawed, and that she is also flawed. However, she is trying to better herself so it’s understandable when she slips up.

Contrastingly

her “trying” implies that she is not being that successful, her natural urges and personality are getting in her way.

She thinks she can’t improve herself as she’s already so flawed. So she drives to escape this truth.
