Lupe Fiasco - Shining Down lyrics

Look up in the sky
Look up in the sky
Look up in the sky

Hook:
Thought I was down
Thought I was gone
Thought I was around
I left you alone
Look up in the sky
Just look up in the sky
See that I'm everywhere
Everywhere
Shining down on you

Verse I:
Well, well
Is that our little author?
Coming back, humming his hyms a little altered
Your attention, Put back on the flow like the department of water
Taken off of the door like little Walter
Chess? Yes. Baby I'm Jerry Lawler
Rebel with a cause; Outlaw with the lawyer
Judge jury like a loop, Rap name Lupe,
But my daddy named me Warrior, this is his memorial.

Hook:
Thought I was down
Thought I was gone
Thought I was around
I left you alone
Look up in the sky
Just look up in the sky
See that I'm everywhere
Everywhere
Shining down on you

Verse II:
No, I ain't the nigga trying to get a liqour line
When I be scriptin lines, won't this petition sign
It says I'm sick of dimes, 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 room fat bitch
Tell 'em it's not to pursue it, just shoe it like a blacksmith
We're trapped, and movin round in circles like its chap stick
And that's the semi-circle way of thinkin' that we're chapped with
We'll rap is arounded ya head like the bandana's
Fabolous used to wrap his hats with
Rather being feds instead of National Geographic's
Well I'm not havin' it, naw.

Hook:
Thought I was down
Thought I was gone
Thought I was around
I left you alone
Look up in the sky
Just look up in the sky
See that I'm everywhere
Everywhere
Shining down on you

So, I say hello and this is for the third time
To everybody out there who ain't never heard mine
And if you haven't you know you ain't never heard line
Lu don't moo. No cow words,you only heard lions
Not a facade cherisher, I rather have the scars
I don't idolize America, I'm dancing with the stars
Uh huh. All of them? Yeah they are, too.
You look up and you see us Shining Down on You.

Hook:
Thought I was down
Thought I was gone
Thought I was around
I left you alone
Look up in the sky
Just look up in the sky
See that I'm everywhere
Everywhere
Shining down on you

Shining down on you
Shining down on you
Shining down on you
