Braille - Keep On
(from the album Shades Of Grey)

9-1-1 wasnít a joke
pistols blaze, young guns get lost in the smoke
thereís a war going on between the rich and the broke
itís in the streets, worldwide, overseas and under oath
from day one man was flawed, we fall daily
no man is perfect, word, but we can keep working
fulfill our purpose, before weíre gone with the wind
storing treasures for the final days and focus on the end (result)
the vinyl plays and I write, my minds stays in the light
and sprays a rhyme to ignite freedom
Iím feeling like itís all over
standing in the cold to be reminded that Iím still breathing
and Iím leaving this state of mind that got me depressed
all the desires of the flesh, get put to rest
and understand, we can live free in harsh reality
and shine light, when itís to dark to see
Keep on, sun rise to sun fall
get your back up off the wall and keep
Keep on, we in this together, good and bad weather
only the soul lasts forever
Keep on, sun rise to sun fall
get your back up off the wall and keep
Keep on, focus on the permanent things
we canít always trust what we see

Iím taking shots at the system like a paparazzi
you canít stop me, from operating properly
Iím set to prosper with no illegal scandal,
just honest, diligent hard work, I canít stand still
I call my cash cream, itís not about the benjaminís
my cream is medicine, Iím not afraid to spread it thin
bless a struggling family with some food to eat
I know if in reverse, they would do it for me
Iím looking out for my people in these trife (trifle) times
children play outside and put their life on the line
itís not all bad, but itís been seeming so lately
seeing all these teenage girls raising babies
with no fathers, subliminal manslaughter
young bucks on the block sipping dirty bath water
in glass bottles, feeling betrayed and cursed
stay encouraged, the last shall be first, Iím saying

Keep on, sun rise to sun fall
get your back up off the wall and keep
Keep on, we in this together, good and bad weather
only the soul lasts forever
Keep on, sun rise to sun fall
get your back up off the wall and keep
Keep on, focus on the permanent things
we canít always trust what we see

Goliath strikes and stands larger then my shadow is
Iím not equipt to battle this man handler alone
built on the rock, evil infiltrates my home
and Iím to honest to God to cast the first stone
fear factor got me thinking to turn, run the opposite way
options fade, opposition tossing grenades
Iím not trained in the art of war
Iím not running wild chasing beef, like a carnivore
sometimes I feel like giving up
sometimes I feel like itís not worth the fight
sometimes I feel like nobody cares
cried at night and realized, God was right there
so regardless of whatís see with physical eyes
(deep inside) I know thereís meaning to life
and even when Iím feeling down, defiled, defeated and dry
I can still lift my hands to the sky (keep on)
