Keep Your Head To The Sky (Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes)

Keep on you so try Keep on singing let's try Keep on moving try Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try To all my little shorties coming up in school Don't forget what they said about the golden rule "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" Your life is what you make it, and that's true And if you don't know what I'm talkin' 'bout Then listen up to what a beat You better watch what's coming out'cha mouth 'Cause while you're talkin' 'bout your friends Showing these messages you sent Gotta real funny way of comin' back again I know that life can be a struggle (struggle, struggle) You stayin' in and out of trouble (trouble, trouble) Weapons used, killin' our youth What's up with that? You feelin' used and abused Wanna strike back Then do yourself a favor Take the anger, flip it around I'm telling you He's the savior There's more to life than you may ever know But you must recognize What it means to grow Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try In the mist of all this confusion, burnt bridges turn into bruises I conjure flames out in fusion, mental combustion to music Compells the demons to shatter Miscontrusing the fantastic Imagine how clear is to plastics Time to fault the unnatural Copin' and dealin', makin' me feel like I'm about to burn any second Losin' the feelin' like life is depressin' Generations are burnin' and people ain't the same no more For real 'cause he drops, she drops, what happend to the fall we rise? It's nothin' but encouragement, we encourage with pride If you instill the blessings and return to now for no lie Unfold your eyes, don't be blinded by the pain and the tears You never dried Realize peer pressures of our young adolescents Bulletproof vestin' And searchin' for questions We tell them everything but the truth For instance there's pride inside Squash the bullshit and you'll be all right And we'll make it to that other side Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try Now as we step into the light and grab the mic Let's try to look for difference between wrong and right You know they listenin' to everything that we resite But if it's glistenin', that makes it a'ight We got shorties on the blocks who know they glocks Believe it or not We raisin' the last generation through Hip-Hop We can't forget about Playstation, you don't stop What's wrong with the nation? It's flip-flop But we can turn it all around, starting with the sound Spreadin' love from the Rock 'N Roll to the Underground We gotta take control of our minds, bodies, and souls Never fall, never fold, never fold And then let the truth be told, there it go Let it show Open your mouth, and let it flow Into the depths and through the blackest hole We can find rainbows and a pot of gold Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try Keep your head to the sky Lift your life and reach high Wipe your tears and don't cry You will make it if you try
