Up From The Ground (Sweatshop Union)

We all chase after things that just hold us down Yeah but we're moving up from the ground We wrote the sounds that are bound to turn out your town Keep moving around and around We all chase after things that just hold us down Yeah but we're moving up from the ground We wrote the sounds that are bound to turn out your frown Keep moving around and around In the place with amazing grace Moving under all those just wasting space So we raise the stakes and erase the slate Running out all rappers on a paper chase Just a taste of a soul in race But don't keep faith but control breeds hate A lonely face up a phony fakes For as long as it takes I'm my own when I'm able Let's take the first step to a system phone Grab hold and try to change the things that we all own If we make sole progress Sometimes I seemed so blessed But we gotta stay positive, driven and focused On this protest it's the bar reps and oak lifts Actions speak louder than words but we still press On trying to right the wrongs with these songs It's not a matter of lift It's just a matter of how long It's the stuff that'll be stale as bomb Just twist the dial turn the radio on Plus they're playing the songs that are paying the blings Making them all part by saying the wrong things Come on take the junk, turn it around Stop faking the funk burn the shit to the ground What better way than now today escape the crowd Or we can remain proud, face down, safe and sound We all chase after things that just hold us down Yeah but we're moving up from the ground We wrote the sounds that are bound to turn out your town Around and around We all chase after things that just hold us down Yeah but we're moving up from the ground We wrote the sounds that are bound to turn out your frown Keep moving around and around Live your life to the fullest, let the chips fall Give it all you got til you hit a brick wall Shit y'all, it's all a big game right Ain't like it matters anyway so we play right Stay hype, til the final curtains close First to blow bubble be the first to go Hone your craft make sure you're verses flow Stay humble, spread lovin, stay versatile Kyprios killed the radio star Motor on the track gotta wait in a boxcar Kyprios killed in stereo war Raining over him love and hate in my heart I'm about a ten a ten, a baller who intend To win the manner of an alien, a scholar and a gentleman Intelligent I innovate you little let us demonstrate Shark in a puddle, you a minnow in a lake Consider this a break from the everyday pre-packaged week average music We have this way of making people wanna jump and move And thank god there's somebody bumping something new (Sweatshop) Coming through, so clear the path And feel the wrath of a disaster near to happen Need to hear the rap and sing to the masses Keeping them smiling while their kingdom collapses We all chase after things that just hold us down Yeah but we're moving up from the ground We wrote the sounds that are bound to turn out your town Keep moving around and around We all chase after things that just hold us down Yeah but we're moving up from the ground We wrote the sounds that are bound to turn out your frown Move around and around
