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

from Lupe Fiasco – The Show Goes On Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The hook is the part of this track where the sampled song “All Float On” by Modest Mouse is most apparent. The first line is a slight variation of the hook in the original track (“Alright already we’ll all float on … ”)

The hook also works as a reference to how Lupe continued touring during the dispute with Atlantic Records and the face that both he and the fans had to wait and dream about the album’s release
