The Way Things Are

Original and similar lyrics
I wouldn't know what to do with another chance If you gave it to me I couldn't take the embrace of a real romance It's race right through me I'm much better off the way things are Much much better if, better by far, by far I wouldn't know what to say to a gentle voice It'd roll right past me And if you chalk it up you'll see I don't really have a choice So don't even ask me I'm much better off, the way things are Much much better off, better by far So keep on calling me names, keep on, keep on And I'll keep kicking the crap till it's gone If you keep on killing, you could get me to settle And as soon as I settle, I bet I'll be Able to move on How can I fight, when we're on the same side How can I fight beside you So keep on calling me names, keep on, keep on Ans I'll keep on kicking the crap will it's gone If you keep on killing, you could get me to settle And as soon as I settle, I bet I'll be Able to move on So keep on callng me names, keep on, keep on And I'll keep kicking the crap till it's gone If you keep on killing, you could get me to settle And as soon as I settle, I bet I'll be Able to move on

Keep Ya Head Up

JADAKISS "Kiss Tha Game Goodbye"
[kid trying to sound like he's crying] [Jadakiss] Whattup little man What's the matter [lil' man] I wish I didn't have to be here [Jadakiss] It's not that bad.. Could always be worse, yaknahmsayin All you gotta do, is stay in school Anything you wanna do you could do yaknahmsayin baby No matter what though, gotta keep your head up to the sky [Jadakiss] This goes out to, all the infants in this cold world that was born addicted And to all the section eight kids Just remember these four words y'all - we gon' make it The government keep on tryin to fool us The system, keep on tryin to lose us And all we can do is keep buyin computers And () all now 'fore it start goin down We gotta hold our head, keep our pride Though it hurts when I see people sleep outside Little babies with no socks on, eatin popcorn We all know what they moms and they pops on Out go the love when the drugs come They never got nuttin for Christmas, and they ain't Muslim This is a jewel, a lot of us was them This is a jewel, a lot of us was them [Chorus: Ann Nesby] Your head to the sky.. my my, my You can win - you can win - if you keep your head As long as you keep - your head - your head to the sky My my, my.. [Jadakiss] Uhh, to my lockdown niggaz keep your head in the sky To my shot down niggaz keep your head in the sky I don't know if it's better to ride, or better to die And that's why there's red in my eye Cause people don't know what the ghetto is like Either you make it out, or the terrible life I don't wanna be a broke bastard And everybody in the hood got somebody in they fam' with a coke habit You work for minimum wage I'ma get in the game, get shot or a bid in the cage It's a risk I gotta take - and I'ma be the nigga with the bricks and the stash and the biscuit outta state And even though I'm blessed with the gift I gotta move cause the pain and the sickness gotta wait I go extremely hard - why let up And I can breathe long as I keep my head up [Chorus w/ minor variations] [Jadakiss] Uhh, uhh - uh-huh, uhh - uh.. Aiyyo I come from a place where it's three strikes out And your life's on the line, so we iced out Summertime gettin money, three dice out Tanktops, and jean shorts, we Niked out Headbands, and four wheelers Jeeps and Coupes and convos, about who know more killers It's all wrong but it's all right It's a small world; matter fact it's a small life We all trip but the way to survive is hold your head and make sure you fall right And it's a quite fact, that whatever goes around comes right back It's just like that And we tryin to touch major paper Everybody in the struggle it gets greater later Never say can't, it's better to try And you can breathe long as you keep your head in the sky [Ann Nesby] Don't you let nobody stop you, mm Heyy, heyyy, yeahhh! [Chorus - 2X w/ variations] [ad libs and Chorus by Ann Nesby to the end]

What It Meant To Be Clean

THE JUNIOR VARSITY "Wide Eyed"
The ast took my baby from me And there is no touching here You've got to trust in me You were too used to it You had to come back down I thought i could keep it better Together Forever in debt to each other I thought i could keep it better Together Forever in debt to each other Jwcc bought and stole time from me And this is what i've learned Fuck the thrill of the chase Race is socially designed To bring you right back down I thought i could keep it better Together Forever in debt to each other I thought i could keep it better Together Forever in debt to each other I can't find conclusions a glue gun A piece of work or two To see another father-daughter brawl Is just a wonderful waste of time Back when the slate was clean 2002 i've not a clue For the life of me I can't think I'm recalling I thought i could keep it better Together Forever in debt to each other I thought i could keep it better Together Forever in debt to each other The portrait of What it meant to be clean The portrait of What it meant to be clean The portrait of What it meant to be clean The portrait of What it meant to be clean

Better Days

JOE "Better Days"
Ooh Child things are going to get easier Ooh Child things it's get brighter Better Days [x 4] Keep your head up Better Days [x 4] Keep your head up She grew up in Brooklyn the Eastside and fulton street Never knew father He got shot hustling She stated acting much older Her mother couldn't control her Losing direction Started sex'n-no protection And now she's expecting A life she wasn't ready for She*s feeling rejected And her futures unsure And if you want Run out there on your own Don*t give up sunshine There will be better days (Keep your head up) Gotta keep movin' on To raise a child alone Don*t give up sunshine There will be better days (Keep your head up) Are you down with full time On weekend stripping So you met baller, but ain't down, but trick'n Gonna have to put your kid through school Guess you hit snotty love for you And you know your wrong girl You gotta believe And now you're expecting A life you wasn't ready for You're feeling rejected And her futures unsure And if you want Run out there on your own Don*t give up sunshine There will be better days (Keep your head up) Gotta keep movin' on To raise a child alone Don't give up sunshine There will be better days (Keep your head up)

The Climb

J RICE "The Covers"
I can almost see it That dream I am dreaming But there's a voice inside my head saying "You'll never reach it" Every step I'm taking Every move I make feels Lost with no direction My faith is shaking But I, I gotta keep trying Gotta keep my head held high There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waiting on the other side It's the climb The struggles I'm facing The chances I'm taking Sometimes might knock me down But no, I'm not breaking I may not know it But these are the moments that I'm gonna remember most, yeah Just gotta keep going And I, I got to be strong Just keep pushing on There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waiting on the other side It's the climb There's always gonna be another mountain I'm always gonna wanna make it move Always gonna be an uphill battle Sometimes I'm gonna have to lose Ain't about how fast I get there Ain't about what's waiting on the other side It's the climb Keep on moving, keep climbing Keep the faith, baby It's all about, It's all about The climb Keep the faith, keep your faith, whoa
