Chasing the Sky
Open your eyes to what you love to hate You're up in the sky but you ain't flying straight Where do I go when I can't go home? 'Cause you sold it, and you lost yourself and you are just no more Take every piece, every piece of me Whatever you need, my mind is changing And I can't hide no, but you know where I'll be Mother And I know I said I didn't need it, I said I wasn't built for it But now that I can see it, damn right I'm really made for this Chasing the sky, trying to fly And now I see Just why you had to be so hard for me You'll hear my roar then fill your legacy Fear of the sky, no choice but to fly, so high, so high, so high Blood is supposed to be thicker than water is Nowadays we can't even stomach the thought of it It's like we can't even get along, who right and who in the wrong? Too busy pointing fingers like it's politics I tell you shut up, you tell me be quiet, too much dysfunction Cut up like we at a riot, kicking and punching Ain't nobody here to mediate it And you would think that we wasn't even related Why are we even throwing blows in the first place? We fight at cook outs, picnics and birthdays I tried to give the benefit but in the worst case You keep on talking smack, you end up with a hurt face And we tried everything, it's time for plan B If Bloods and Crips can reconcile, why can't we? I guess I'm ratchet like my mama and my poppa I'm chasing the sky and I ain't talking 'bout the vodka, let's fly Far from a perfect man The fights and the lies , I guess you never understand A mother and father who wanted for you much more than Life is a slight of hand, if you hate it today I've a lot for you, if there's one thing that it's true Going all alone, I can't even trust all the people here inside my home And if you were my brother, then never let it get so wrong That you turn your back on what we were Turn your back on me, on your family, no I know I said I didn't need it, I said I wasn't built for it But now that I can see it, damn right I'm really made for this Chasing the sky, trying to fly And now I see Just why you had to be so hard for me You'll hear my roar then fill your legacy Fear of the sky, no choice but to fly, so high, so high, so high
