Lights On (feat. Phase One and Melanie Charles)

2015

C’mon c’mon c’mon yeah

Keep a light on, gonna light the way
Gotta keep on, gotta keep the faith

I speak like it’s a rally/living thru peaks & valleys/bearing my truth flying the coupe/as New York alleys/I’m raw, yet pristine/a fiend/deal with demons of mine/still a phenom with rhymes/dream like Luther the King/within power of God/peace how Ghandi would sing/with this light I’m a ride/til this very glow looks like the sun in your eyes/even from depths below/Maya Angelou we rise…we here to let ya know…huh???

Oooh ahhh turn your lights on keep your lights on

Keep a light on, gonna light the way
Gotta keep on, gotta keep the faith

Day to day/yesterday today/yester ways became future dues that’s paid/every move you make/feels like test of faith/fail you fetal in shame/ducking within the shade/finger in blame/where life bring ya you may linger thru the flame/residing inside trenches/alive but it’s like death/abiding with lose grip/gets tighter with time spent/you binding like double helix reaching like whats next keep your lights on…

Oooh ahhh turn your lights on keep your lights on

You gotta give it to the right one oh yeah
Living with the lights on…alright
Yeah what you getting high on…my my
Living with the lights on……living with the lights on……

Got my vision up in a vice/trying to make an incision on life/when scars heal what’s left is a mark I made/my mind sprays/when light decays/I fight to remain/quiet within chaos/stillness becomes a seance/building to aviate where feet don’t understand/even deeper as my footprints pass along the sand/while the waves just wash away my skin of the past/a baptism this a raptism a I’m new man keep them lights on!!!

Oooh ahhh turn your lights on keep your lights on
