Lyrics

[Verse 1: John Reuben]
Let me shoot straight, clear up any mistake
And take a moment or two just to reiterate
Never did I think that I was anything great, no
Well, I simply said my name just to fill in the blanks
John Reuben, the professional rapper
The one who likes to mix up the chitter chatter
We whip it up and play games with subject matter
In the stage of life, this is but a chapter
(Oh) page one, brief introduction
Mr. Zappin likes to have some fun
Some cats call it whack, while I think that's dumb
I confront it, feel like I'm capable of either one, I'm getting

[Hook]
Higher, we gonna take the music much
Higher, go ahead throw your hands up
Higher, we gonna take the music much
Higher, now what we talking about, let's go

[Bridge]
Oh my, oh my, hey, hey
What more can I say?
Hey, we gonna keep on pushin' on and on
We're going on and on

[Verse 2: Alon Auguste]
Hey, hey
Hey, listen, let me introduce myself
My name's Alon, it's still the same even if you don't know me well
[?] a cool cat, travel with a cool pad
Earn a dash, [?], laid out on the boom bap
[?], easy to follow, easy to swallow (hey)
Known to move and groove and what I put and serve up on your plate
We, [?], I and Johnny Reu bring you [?]
And highly-rated party-like la-di-da if you say
Slow down, let me catch breath with Reuben, just
Move now, crews feel the groove and just
Roll out, [?] with no place to go
Hold up, wait, we got a date with your stereo
And plus a show
In your spot, range me [?] the coliseum
We're at your atmosphere, no matter where we at, our vibes, you feel 'em
It's so dope to have high-quality, high-energy poetry flowing out that makes you say

[Bridge x2]

[Verse 3: John Reuben]
Burn it permanent in the minds of those who misinterpret
Those who are uncertain if what we do here is a good thing
Road blocks won't stop us, we must keep on pushing
I am not opposed to losing, I just do not believe in quitting
What a wonderful world our God is babysitting
And I am just a visitor, but while I'm here, I'll do my best to stand and deliver
Exact is it or rather I can get
And I admit, I'm not one hundred percent accurate
Split it, give me 50, I'd be happy with half of it
The room to grow will keep me passionate

[Hook]

[Bridge]
