Look up in the sky
Now Look up in the sky
Look up in the sky
You thought I was down
You thought I was gone
Thought I wasn’t around
I left you alone
But look up in the sky
Just look up in the sky
See that I’m everywhere, everywhere
Shining Down on you

verse 1:
Well well,
Is that our little author?
Coming back, humming his hymns a little altered
Your attention; put back on the flow like a department of water
Take it off the door like little Walter
Chess? Yes. Baby, I’m Jerry Lawler
Rebel with a cause; outlaw with the laywer
Judge, jurry like a loo; Rap name Lupe but my daddy named me Warrior
This is his memorial.

verse 2:
No, I ain’t that nigga trying to get a liquor line
When I be scripting lines; want this petition signed.
It says I’m sick of dying; sick of this prison time
I really love my people; I’m sick of pimpin’ mine.
Now if we autotune that shit
We can hear the songs from that opera groomed fat bitch
Tellin us not to pursue her, just to shoo her like a blacksmith
We’re trapped, and moving round in circles like it’s chap stick
And that’s the same encircled way of thinking that we chat with
We’ll rap this, around your head like a bandanna’s fabulous
Used to wrap his hat’s with, Rather be in F.E.D.S. instead of National Geographics
We’ll I’m not having it now.

verse 3:
So I say hello and this is for the third time
To everybody out there who ain’t ever heard of mine
And if you have then you know you ain’t ever heard lying
Lu don’t moo no cow words, you only heard lions
Not a facade cherisher, I’d rather have the scars
I don’t idolize America, I’m dancing with the stars
Uh huh, All of them? Ya, they are too.
You look up and you see us shining down on you
