Lupe Fiasco – The Show Goes On Lyrics

LA-SER
Yeah, yeah
Kane is in the building, nigga
Yeah

 Alright, already, the show goes on
All night, ’til the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up, the show goes on
Alright, already, the show goes on
All night, ’til the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up, the show goes on
Have you ever had the feelin’ that you was bein’ had?
Don’t that shit there make you mad? They treat you like a slave
Put chains all on your soul and put whips up on your back
They be lyin’ through they teeth, hope you slip up off your path
I don’t switch up, I just laugh (Ha ha) put my kicks up on they desk
Unaffected by they threats, then get busy on they ass
See that’s how that Chi-Town made me
That’s how my daddy raised me
That glitterin’ may not be gold, don’t let nobody play me
If you are my homeboy, you never have to pay me
Gon’ and put your hands up, when times is hard, you stand up
L-U-P the man, ’cause the brand that the fans trust
So even if they ban us, they’ll never slow my plans up

 Alright, already, the show goes on
All night, ’til the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up, the show goes on
Alright, already, the show goes on
All night, ’til the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up, the show goes on

 One in the air for the people ain’t here
Two in the air for the father that’s there
Three in the air for the kids in the ghetto
Four for the kids that don’t wanna be there
None for the niggas tryna hold them back
Five in the air for the teachers not scared
To tell those kids that’s livin’ in the ghetto
That the niggas holdin’ back that the world is theirs
Yeah, yeah, the world is yours, I was once that little boy
Terrified of the world, now I’m on a world tour
I would give up everything, even start a world war
For these ghetto girls and boys I’m rappin’ round the world for
Africa to New York, Haiti then I detour
Oakland out to Auckland, Gaza Strip to Detroit
Say hip-hop only destroy, tell ’em look at me, boy
I hope your son don’t have a gun and never be a d-boy
Alright, already, the show goes on
All night, ’til the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up, the show goes on
Alright, already, the show goes on
All night, ’til the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up, the show goes on

 So no matter what you been through, no matter what you into
No matter what you see when you look outside your window
Brown grass or green grass, picket fence or barbed wire
Never ever put them down, you just lift your arms higher
Raise ’em ’til your arms tired, let ’em know you here
That you strugglin’, survivin’, that you gon’ persevere
Yeah, ain’t nobody leavin’, nobody goin’ home
Even if they turn the lights out, the show is goin’ on, alright

 Alright, already, the show goes on
All night, ’til the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up, the show goes on
Alright, already, the show goes on
All night, ’til the morning we dream so long
Anybody ever wonder, when they would see the sun up
Just remember when you come up, the show goes on
