Lupe Fiasco - Shining Down Lyrics

look up in the sky
look up in the sky

you thought I was down
you thought I was gone
that I went around
thought I left you alone

but look up in the sky
just look up in the sky
see that I’m everywhere
shining down on you

well well, is it our little author
coming back humming his hymns a little altered
your attention put back on the flow like the department of water
taking off of the door like Little Walter(…)
Chess yes baby i’m Jerry Lawler
rebel with a cause, outlaw with a lawyer
judge jury like a loop(…) rap name Lupe
but my daddy named me warrior
this is a memorial

you thought I was down
you thought I was gone
that I went around
thought I left you alone

but look up in the sky
just look up in the sky
see that I’m everywhere
shining down on you

no, i ain’t the 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 pimping mine

now if we autotune that shit
we can hear the songs from that opera grown fat b*tch
tellin us not to pursue it just to shoo it like a blacksmith
we trapped and movin round in circles like it’s chapstick

and that’s the same encircled way of thinking that we chat with
well wrap this like around your head like the bandanas
Fabolous used to wrap his hat with
rather be in FEDS instead of National Geographics
well I’m not having it

you thought I was down
you thought I was gone
that I went around (…)
thought I left you alone

but look up in the sky
just look up in the sky
see that I’m everywhere
shining down on you

so i say hello and this is for the third time
to everybody out there that ain’t never heard lines
and if you have then you know you ain’t never heard lyin
Lu don’t move no cowards (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
all of them yeah they are too
you look up and all of us shining down on you
