  • Like a spaceship from the sky
    Like a spaceship from the sky

    Uh, stare out my window
    Already know where I been though
    They say life's like a stencil
    At twelve years old I rock with a number two pencil
    My mom used to say "get your head out the sky"
    Such a small fry, they didn't want me to fly
    But I never cry, I just took a step
    Peace to Josh, peace to Droops, lest we forget
    Yo, slanging raps on the block, just to lick a shot
    Other rappers aren't hot, just forget it
    Right down to the bell before class
    Every other One Dimension emcee wouldn't last
    Mister Stally, where's my demo?
    He said to let you know, young man, just let the truth be your ammo
    Yep, another song to sing
    And they soon come back bringing the dawn they bring, but

    People think I'm crazy for thinking so high
    I let the world amaze me, and I'm a lonely guy
    But I'mma learn to fly, like a spaceship from the sky
    Like a spaceship from the sky, no lie

    Yo, it visits one time, there's only one line so you better be on time
    Sifted the black in the back with the track
    You could cruise in the Cadillac 'til they put the zap on 'em
    You're not a friend to the end, you only come around when love is a trend
    It's a spaceship, not a slave ship
    And until your eyes spent so many wasted
    Nights in a hotel, go tell it on the mountain
    Oh yeah, mansion in public housing
    It's a different kind of bouncing, from a distant star
    But you all meet me at the bar

    People think I'm crazy for thinking so high
    I let the world amaze me, and I'm a lonely guy
    But I'mma learn to fly, like a spaceship from the sky
    Like a spaceship from the sky, no lie

    This is not speak and spell but I ring the bell
    You could tell that it's astro-Johnny Cash flow in an Astro van
    Kicking rhymes in the back to our final destination but it's not on the map
    You attack, but it's a little known fact
    That I'd rather shoot stardust when it's on tap
    This is dealing bigger claiming love at first glance
    So think about a quote in advance, dance (dance)

    No lie

    People think I'm crazy for thinking so high
    I let the world amaze me, and I'm a lonely guy
    But I'mma learn to fly, like a spaceship from the sky
    Like a spaceship from the sky, no lie Writer/s: KEVIN DERON BRERETON
