Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us (x4)
(Listen) Why you had to hide away for (x4)

from Common (Ft. Makeba Riddick) – Blue Sky Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Mr. Blue Sky is a reference to God. This song speaks of the struggles one faces, but eventually God steers you down the right path. There’s even an image of the Bible in the first :45 seconds of the video.

Common is thankful for what he has and hopes to inspire the kids of today (like the ones in the video).

The video shows what looks like an apartment building filled with many different aspiring artists as well as regular people who just need some guidance. They’re wondering where God is (why you had to hide away for), but as the hook shows us, they eventually find God again and use him as inspiration.
