PLANET ASIA - Upside Down lyrics

rate me

(feat. Goapele)

[Planet Asia]

The meaning of this song is

Never take things on face value

The truth shall set you free, yknahmsayin?

Truth is the power to resurrect the mentally dead

from their state of unawareness

So on that note, for all my peoples in the U.S.A.

Check it out

[Chorus: Planet Asia (Goapele)]

(Up.. side.. down) Uh-huh that's right we gettin down

Guess who's comin to yo' town

I was lost but now I'm found (up.. down)

Now I'm bout to turn America upside down (upside dowwwwn)

(Up.. side.. down) Upside down

(And if you come down) Upside down, upside down

(Up, down, ohhhhhhhhhhhhh)

[Verse One: Planet Asia]

It's like the great {?} to who made the Egyptian scriptures

I'm spiritual cultivation the way my words entered your dome

No stoppin once the mission is known

You know the topic many prophets can't physically show 'em

And many different pedigrees sent from out the heavens to the chosen

So the struggle is maintain some integrity

And until it's over, I shall remain a soldier

Like Aztecs with aspects that they govern, it's on

Wanna live, you gotta eat from the tree

And reach the degree, the medicine for my peoples is history lost

And in religion, the mystery cost

Unofficially off brothers who be frosted mentally

Black man recognize the science of life

It's all you, right and exact, it's actual fact

It's all you, everything in existance

The sun the moon the stars the galaxy and every dimension

Fuck a pagan religion, let's look at the state of our livin

And I say it again for all my peoples layin in prison

Cause what's the cure if it don't change the condition?

If it's holy it's pure, undiluted in any form with no mixtures

Many claim a parable and scroll the scriptures

But what's the story if you never catch the whole adventure

And we want the facts right now

Or else we bout to turn America, upside down

[Chorus: + ad libs]

[Verse Two: Planet Asia]

Poisonous nights, street life, police lights

A whole nation of men women and kids that don't eat right

It's freedom or death, kingmanship or slaves to success

And why the fuck I owe the government net?

They're puttin holes in my check

While undercovers put the holes in our chest from

Every corner to block they got us posin for death some

Get out of this, but most don't even know what the knowledge is

Children payin tuition to these brainwashed colleges

Still in the same position they had us and still got us in

Look at where all the problems begin

Where the problem begins, is when you motherfuckers try to pretend

And try to act like you ain't really bout the dollars and cents

A scholar was sent, to shed some proper knowledge and gems

More than Pradas and Timbs, papi came to father his kin

I came to add another part to the trend

And add the sword to the devil's lapel

Cause me and him could never have resemblence

Simply cause his level is Hell, never I fail

Never will and never shall, forever real

'til my words, from now on, 'til I'm dirt

Forever with my five fingers put together puttin in work

I'm your black star power, the now or never shout of let's get free

Your scientist, the future of tomorrow has come

And we want some answers right now

Or else we bout to turn America, upside down

[Chorus: + ad libs]

[Planet Asia] w/ Goapele ad libbing

Uh-huh that's right we gettin down

Guess who's comin to yo' town

I was lost but now I'm found

And I'm bout to turn America, upside down

Upside down, upside down, upside down

Turn America upside down

[Goapele keeps ad libbing]

[Planet Asia]

Yeah, real people

All my real people walkin through life

Not takin things on face value, knahmsayin?
