    You keep taking me higher, higher (Yeah)
    But don't you know that the devil is a liar? (I know)
    They'd rather see me down, put my soul in the fire
    But we keep goin' higher, higher

    Look, look
    My granny 88, she had my uncle and then
    A miscarriage back-to-back every year for like ten
    Pregnant with my moms, doctor told her it was slim
    Was bed rode for nine months, but gave birth in the end
    Pops turned 60, he proud what we done
    In one generation, he came from Africa young
    He said he met my moms at the Century Club
    Los Angeles love kinda of like Hussle and Boog
    Mani turned ten, Kross turned two
    Startin' to see this life shit from a bird's view
    We the ones that made millions off the curb, fool
    In this rap shit ten, never made nerd moves

    You keep taking me higher and higher (Yeah)
    (Hussle, Khaled)
    But don't you know that the devil is a liar? (I know)
    (Right back)
    They'd rather see me down, put my soul in the fire
    But we keep goin' higher, higher (Woah, woah)
    (Nip, talk to 'em)

    Emptied out the clip, it was broad day
    Fuck niggas always gotta learn the hard way
    We gon' tape it off if we ball play
    Put a half a moon crescent on your bald fade
    Police hit the lights, that's a car chase
    Lookin' back at my life make my heart race
    Dance with the devil and test our faith
    I was thinkin' chess moves but it was God's grace
    Crooked ass whoever 'til we all straight
    With no shame, I peeped game and it's all fake
    South Central state of mind, high crime rate (Yeah)
    Homicide, hate, gang banging'll get you all day (Yeah, yeah)
    And look at my fate

    You keep taking me higher and higher (Yeah)
    (Told Khaled bounce the four 'til the bar break)
    But don't you know that the devil is a liar? (I know)
    They'd rather see me down, put my soul in the fire
    But we keep goin' higher, higher

    Higher
    Oh, Lord
    Can you feel it?
    My shoes are scrapin' the sky
    I'm so high
    We keep goin' higher Writer/s: Ermias Asghedom, Henry Mckenzie Davis, John Legend, Kevin Bryant Cossom, Khaled Mohammaed Khaled, Nicholas M. Warwar, Tarik Azzouz
