[Hook]
Been here for too long
Said it's time to ride
Got to push it on
Cause I'm (1-2)
Been here for too long
Yes, it's time to fly
Got to get along
Cause I'm late for the sky
Been here for too long
Got to uh
Cause I'm late for the sky-y-y-y
[Verse 1: Slug]
I dream what these wings won't do
Cause counting sheep is easy as 1 2
Jumping out the nest to catch some bird food
Clutched so tense that the knuckles turned blue
I been hooped to wise men
Check horizons, read the flight plan
Spread the lifespan
Sky heights are set, it's time to climb these steps
We only tryna get free from the spider's web
Gotta murder all the messing around
Carry the burden of work, never setting it down
With a spotlight now, my shot, my chance
Put a plot of land in the pockets of my pants
(Break-break) Break loose, raise roof when the kick drops
They flew, straight through, no pit stops
Lift off with your head in the clouds
Or get lost in the rest of the crowd
[Hook]
Been here for too long
Said it's time to ride
Got to push it on
Cause I'm (1-2)
Times have come and gone
Yes, it's time to ride
Early in the morn'
Late for the sky-y-y-y
Been here for too long
Said it's time to ride
Got to push it on
Cause I'm late for the sky
Times have come and gone
Yes, it's time to fly
Got to get along
Late for the sky-y-y-y
[Verse 2: Evidence]
Here's a quotable
Slash rap notable
Slash Mike gone but Janet still controlling you
I'm rarely candid, my view panoramic
My eyes wide shut, if not one, a hole-in-two
I'm packing double, getting up too early
I'm actually trouble, kind of acting 7:30 (Out of my mind)
Attracted to this Earth, maybe acting kinda worldly
But running on my work that says "Ev I better hurry"
I'd rather worry debt than being pushed through the line
Still a perfect record jet, never late when I fly
Moving hectic, testing patience of this time when I rhyme
Not an out to death trying, sayin' "late for the sky"
Late for my prime, but something that was shaped by design
I been running while the others burnt from racing the line
Making it great coincides with making it mine
Coincides with the hate that I'm making it signs
Let me start from the beginning, I'm rewinding the clock
Pitch my heart in every inning like I did with the knock
And it don't stop, a body in motion stays in motion
Coach seat between the wings of this Boeing
[Hook]
Been here for too long
Said it's time to ride
Got to push it on
Cause I'm (1-2)
Times have come and gone
Yes, it's time to ride
Early in the morn'
Late for the sky-y-y-y
Been here for too long
Said it's time to ride
Got to push it on
Cause I'm late for the sky
Times have come and gone
Yes, it's time to fly
Got to get along
Late for the sky-y-y-y
[Verse 3: Aesop Rock]
From a chickenwire frame and a house of wax
To a rocket exploding into a cloud of bats
I been it, dog meat in a '76 Plymouth
Sitting bitch antenna divide 'em for live witches
We will be closing in 5 minutes
Have you buried a corpse, can you suture a wound?
Do you get a fuzzy feeling when the beautiful lose?
Like a behooving of a crew to snap Buddha, enthuse greatly
Prove a definitive crucible of mood-making
Four wolves find me to speak as an eye-witness
We will be closing in 5 minutes, find spinach
Not a pleasantry but stirring only enemies of mercy
A plebeian centipede's unearthing something dirty
Same nature later snap on his shoes
Maybe they ratty cause they're actually a hat for his roots
That anger every perp'll pivot to the city's nervous system
Til I make the following preferred decision, listen
[Hook]
Been here for too long
Said it's time to ride
Got to push it on
Cause I'm (1-2)
Times have come and gone
Yes, it's time to ride
Early in the morn'
Late for the sky-y-y-y
Been here for too long
Said it's time to ride
Got to push it on
Cause I'm late for the sky
Times have come and gone
Yes, it's time to fly
Got to get along
Late for the sky-y-y-y
