lyrics

Hook:

I got dream on my mind
A pocket full of rhymes
A watch full of time
A team by my side
And we rollin
The doors are open
So the chances are golden

But it's up to us to make it shine
And you know it
Tell em cut the lights out
My Shine is potent
Speaking for the souls thats been forgotten and broken
Let it manifest, yes let it be spoken
You got that power but you gotta keep focus

Verse: (Tru Sound)

Rise and shine to the light of an experiment gone wrong
A dreamer with a vision too realistic for iPods
Threw my goals in the gutter
High school I wanted to fit in with other children
I dumbed it down to do the thigs that they did like
Skip class constantly, copy from straight-A kids
Sleeping when I did go ignored what teachers were sayin
The only words I wrote were the poems and rhymin phrases
Beats kept me up so I never woke up to smell the fragrances

Days I spent, in my room choppin up the Samps
Dad said, "Take out the trash"
Momma said " Work on your math"
So I thought to myself "How can I do just that?"
I subtracted all the trap, added a soul...As a matter of fact
Added a kick, added a clap
Added some highs, added some hats
Added some lows, just about 8
I wanted to blow, but something said, "Wait"
Something said, "Wait!!", (hold up)
So i followed my instinct
And promised myself I do some grade A things
Cuz I got this dream

Hook

Verse: (KEiTH PHELPS)

Yea yall remember me?
18, arrogant, and feelin me
Convinced that no one else on the planet was ever seein me
Beats was too dope for me to ever study
Yea my GPA trash but them rappers love me
Expecting the industry with open arms to come and hug me
No one ever told me that this industry could get so ugly
And everybody I know bouta start they freshman semester
Said my grades was too low but I ain't goin to Everest

Whether we like it or not, see we all goin to school
Some students goin to Harvard others enroll in the hard knocks
I had to find out the hard way
Stayin home at my moms place
I was makin that minimum wage before ever taking the stage

Now I educate the youth
I'm building a squad
Everytime we in the booth
The goal is to change & inspire
Kiya from Nashville
PJ from Crenshaw
Deno, Fela, from SD
Carnegie, Ellis & Jamal
See we unstoppable
The leaders of the new school
In our own lanes and
Creativity's the only rule
Dreams no longer dreams now we livin em
This global initiative
Real Music Affiliates
You feelin' it?
