Keep Your Head To The Sky Lyrics

by Lisa Lopes

Keep on you so try
keep on singing let's try
keep on moving try

[Chorus]
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 comin out'cha mouth
cuz while your talkin bout your friends
showing these messages you sent
gotta real funny way coming 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

[Chorus]

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 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 cuz he drops, she drops
what happened 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 pressure 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 alright
and we'll make it to that other side

[Chorus]

Now as we step through the light and grab the mic
let's try to look for the difference between wrong and right
you know they listenin to everything that we resite
but if it's glistenin that makes it aiight
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
nevr 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

[Chorus 3x]

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
