lyrics

(Intro: Jon Bibbs)

Keep your head to the sky

(Repeat x 2)

(Verse 1)

Yeah, ready for a newer day, ready to view the way
In the midst of surprise is where the rude awake
He used to sleep on the wrong side of the bed
Instead, switched to the right side, and opened his bright eyes
Sick of the game, sick of the pain
of feeling like it’s ok to be slain
10th grade, once again, doors are full of chains
Glock found, school on lockdown, everyone stop now
bring in the cops (wow), patrolling the hallways all day
in his hood, all same
Mad guns and drugs, yo the scene is bugged
How can a 15 year old rise above
They all knowing he smart, but they hide the love
They think he’ll just fail, if he try to budge
But why all of a sudden he wanna reach the top?
His momma told him “baby just don’t stop”
You better keep…

(Chorus: Jon Bibbs)

Keep your head to the sky
(keep it up yall
keep it up to the sky, sky, sky, sky, yeah)

(Repeat)

(Verse 2)

Aye yo, ready for another night, and feeling all right
Lounging, bumping The Undefined’s “Moonlight”
A college bound senior, making believers out of naysayers
girlfriends be screaming “hey player”
Cutting class for kats whose straight hypocrite
with slick talk, and a business card from VistaPrint
Scheming to make a star out of the hour glass figure
But this girl is thinking much bigger
While her friends steady choosing between hate or love
she falls back, she already seen “Player’s Club”
so kill that strip tease, you ain’t gonna trick me
I’m trying to make a career that fits me
So the boys call her names, girls call her lame
Losing her best friends for fake fame
So as the tears run down her cheek she’s getting weak
But she ain’t never meeting defeat
She’s gonna keep…

(Chorus x 2)

(Verse 3)

Aye yo, and to the woman trying to get out the house
Feeling there’s no way out, getting abuse by a spouse
and all you hear is negative out his mouth
But the truth is this ain’t what love is all about
To them dudes cooking it up in the kitchen
wanting out of the game, but needs someone to listen
Before another brother becomes a victim
Let him strive while alive, gotta share a little wisdom
To those living in fear and you can hardly take it
when your entire family’s saying you’ll never make it
From grandmas to in-laws been sore
‘cause your thoughts ain’t never been poor, get yours
To Floe Almighty, keep dropping real verses
I need encouragement too my dude, I ain’t perfect
Patience and your greatness will soon surface
When you manifest your destiny, it’s all worth it

(Chorus x 5)

(End)
