[Intro: E.D.I. Mean]
As long as you keep your head to the sky
You can win (We can win)
As long as you keep your head to the sky (Shout out to the sounds of blackness for makin' this one
I had to do it over though)
You can win (C'mon, we gon' win, we gon' win, we gon' win)
As long as you keep your head to the sky
It's your friendly neighborhood hope dealer

Let's get it

[Verse 1: E.D.I. Mean]
Plenty days of pain, tryna figure it out
Mama sick of my shit, she told me get out the house (Get out)
Poppa dealin' with his own thang, needles in his vein
Why they bring me in this world? Somebody gotta explain (For real)
Feelin' like I was stuck, 'til the big homie told me keep my head up (Keep ya head up)
And ain't no such thing as luck, I took the time out to listen while he was kickin' that game
All he told me was real, so now I give it the same
AIn't nobody gon' hand it to you, better go get it
Let yo hustle do the talk, that's how you silence the critics
Everyday is another chance for you to advance
Put the faith in yourself, 'cause without, it you can't
But if you got it, you will, look at me, I'm the proof
They kept on tellin' me I couldn't, when I knew that I would
All you got is your will, and when it's rough, push through
And when they see you on top, they gon' act like they knew it
It's all good

[Chorus: E.D.I. Mean]
As long as you keep your head to the sky
You can win (You can win, you can win, you can win)
As long as you keep your head to the sky (Uh huh, uh huh, just keep ya head up)
You can win (Just keep ya head up, just keep ya head up)
As long as you keep your head to the sky

[Verse 2: E.D.I. Mean]
So many odds stacked against us, and we our worst enemy
The problem ain't them, but the remedy is you and me
What kinda example are we leavin? I can't believe it
I know that we can do better even though it's dark I can see
In the heart of a racist, it's only fear, from the eyes of a black mother so many tears
Out the gun of a crooked cop, stolen years
And all we got is each other, but do we even care?
I know the marathon continues, and that's on Nip
Pac up in heaven chillin', so don't even trip
All you got is your faith, and when it's tough, push through
And when it's all said and done, give the credit to you (ha ha)
It's on you! It's on you! Wooh!

[Chorus: E.D.I. Mean]
As long as you keep your head to the sky (Yeah, yeah yeah)
You can win (You can win, you can win, you can win)
As long as you keep your head to the sky (But you gotta keep ya head up)
You can win (Keep ya head up, keep ya head up)
As long as you keep your head to the sky (Please believe it)

[Outro: E.D.I. Mean]
Man I know it's dark, (Man I know it's dark)
Brighter days ahead though (Brighter days ahead though)
Rest in power everybody that we lost (Rest in power everybody that we lost)
Along the way (Along the way)
It ain't over til it's over man ('Til it's over)
As long as you got breath in your lungs (Got breath in your lungs)
You got another chance (You got another chance)
I ain't preachin' I'm just kickin' the facts (Just kickin' the facts)
