Chorus:
She's got a ticket I think she gonna use it
Think she gone to fly away
(Where you going?)
No one should try and stop her
Persuade her with their power
She says that her mind is made

Spoken: This a story we all familiar with

Verse 1:
Yeah we all tryin to live worry free
Pretty young things affection is like currency
Talking bout a country girl living in a city though
Searching but she get her moral compass from these videos
Girl you'll be killing and searching your faith or new tears
Courage under fire especially after a few beers
Already broke the resolution for a new year
They blushin cause they sayin it's nothing inside a few years
Until I game across this dame I used to baby sit
At the club looking for this lame she had a baby with
Wait a minute you're only 17 and she said to me
My baby gave me strength to leave the city life ain't meant for me
Father can't be bothered, I'm here to make my peace
So offered her some money but she started quoting Jay to me
I'll do you one better, I slay these niggas faithfully
I don't need you to pay for me, I just need to pray for me


Chorus:
She's got a ticket I think she gonna use it
Think she gone to fly away

(Where you going?)
No one should try and stop her
Persuade her with their power
She says that her mind is made

Verse 2:
When you call up and captain say that ain't no hero
What you really bring to the table let's keep the real dough
No matter where you're going if you don't get your mind right
First choose between two evils like this is twilight
She up in the kitchen tonight cooking the grams up..
Gotta take you to right the Peter Pan but
She gotta take it to..she got a grant..
She gotta take it to fly she had a lan and she try
She tryin to avoid the trap is like the cancer
The love and money run in the vein now she a dancer
Not the blow going in oh to keep her dancin
The high is the only escape, she like a phantom
A ghost just a sell of herself packing them pasttense
Closer to selling herself who's in the access
Ain't nothing left to shake let's break it all down
Got then sign the vein she takin all now

[Hook:]

Fly high, fly fly
Sky high, yeah
Hole up, where you're going girl
Where you're going, hole up
Where you're going girl
Where you're going, hole up
Where you're going girl
Where you're going, hole up
Where you're going, damn

Verse 3:
Damn, I'll found her later that she don't know who her father was
I'm like this crazy and baby ain't gotta start the kids
She never met the real..foe they try to steal the goodies
And breaking into a candy store
We all in pistols and willy wanka for soldier system
Cause when we're taking the gold and taking the coldest winter
Statistic and give me the true is pitchin
And out of youth the visionary gonna mission for new beginning
It's hard enough for you..and it's twenty block radio
It's wondering who the father of the baby is
To pay relationships to her like sound fiction out to table
And public you write a buy you and provide it with the title

Body of a woman with the eyes of a child
Driven that she could..is it now
Want the future to be write us a smile she like the..
I see and spin it that, well a fortune is by vow

[Hook:]

Hole up
I realized early that black girls carry universes inside their bodies
Waiting to be named whole continent

Land masses that were once connected
Flow through her arms fingers, chest, legs, stomach
Feet and head
Ghanna is her heart, her lungs charity
Her tongue I'm.., her bones massai
Her breath Aboriginal her skin the color of Moroccan
Sand
in south african sky lines
Her blue blood separates the land fro our riversand great legs
The place where we shit and drink
The place that we love and hate
Colonize and liberate
Conquer and rebuilt right and so up

Escape and imprisoned
The place where questions like if you a woman
Raise your hand will get you killed
