Rap I:
Up, up and away, baby, we don't play.
Maybe you thought you was done for the day.
He said, she said, I said this,
That you can't get away from the moment of bliss.
Stirring, we'll lure you in,
And we'll make room for the shade of skin.
Short ones, tall ones, skinny ones, bigger,
love is the gun and we pulling that trigger.
So you send me and I'll send you
Hope in the form of a new tattoo.
Mine is a shiny city on a hill
And yous, of course, is the colors that fill it.

If you're black, if you're white, if you're yellow or gray.
