What up lil' man? What's the matter?
I wish I didn't have to be here
It's not that bad, it could always be worse, you know what I'm sayin'?
All you gotta do is stay in school
Anything you wanna do you could do you know what I'm sayin' baby?
No matter what though you gotta keep your head up to the sky

This goes out to all the infants
In this cold world that was born addicted
And to all the section eight kids
Just remember these four words y'all we gon' make it

The government keep on tryin' to fool us
The system, keep on tryin' to lose us
And all we can do is keep buyin' computers
And [Incomprehensible] all now 'fore it start goin' down

We gotta hold our head, keep our pride
Though it hurts when I see people sleep outside
Little babies with no socks on, eatin' popcorn
We all know what they moms and they pops on

Out go the love when the drugs come
They never got nuttin' for Christmas and they ain't Muslim
This is a jewel, a lot of us was them
This is a jewel, a lot of us was them

Your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep
Your head to the sky

Uh, to my lock down niggaz keep your head in the sky
To my shot down niggaz keep your head in the sky
I don't know if it's better to ride or better to die
And that's why there's red in my eye

'Cause people don't know what the ghetto is like
Either you make it out, or the terrible life
I don't wanna be a broke bastard and everybody in the hood
Got somebody in they fam' with a coke habit

You work for minimum wage
I'ma get in the game, get shot or a bid in the cage
It's a risk I gotta take and I'ma be the nigga
With the bricks and the stash and the biscuit outta state

And even though I'm blessed with the gift
I gotta move 'cause the pain and the sickness gotta wait
I go extremely hard why let up?
And I can breathe long as I keep my head up

Your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep
Your head to the sky

Aiyyo I come from a place where it's three strikes out
And your life's on the line, so we iced out
Summertime gettin' money, three dice out
Tanktops and jean shorts, we Niked out

Headbands and four wheelers
Jeeps and Coupes and Convos about who know more killers
It's all wrong but it's all right
It's a small world, matter of fact it's a small life

We all trip but the way to survive
Is hold your head and make sure you fall right
And it's a quite fact, that whatever goes around comes right back
It's just like that

And we tryin' to touch major paper
Everybody in the struggle, it gets greater later
Never say can't, it's better to try
And you can breathe long as you keep your head to the sky

Don't you let nobody stop you, mmm
Hey, hey, yeah

Your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep
Your head to the sky

Your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep
Your head to the sky

Don't look back, no time for looking back
Gotta keep on, gotta keep on, gotta go on, hey hey hey
[Incomprehensible], hey hey hey hey hey hey
Keep on, keep on, keep on, no, yeah

Your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep
Your head to the sky

Your head to the sky
You can win as long as you keep
Your head to the sky

No time for looking back, hey
No matter what's going on before you
Gotta keep on, gotta keep on, gotta keep on, hey hey hey hey yeah
Be optimistic, yeah
Gotta keep on, gotta keep on, gotta keep on, gotta keep on, gotta go

Thanks I needed that
I got you, we gon' make it
