[Intro: Shara Worden]
Oooooooh, keep movin on and on and on and on
Keep movin on

[Vinnie Paz]
I lost my job at the factory and that's disastrous
They said it's due to regulation and higher taxes
They ain't give me no notice they knocked me off my axis
I can't pay the electric bill it's total blackness
I suggested some incentives for innovation
But that was met with resistance like it's a sin of Satan
I'm losin my patience over here, I'm sick of waitin
And I ain't never expect to be in this situation
And the manufacturing jobs are fadin fast (damn)
Can't do nuttin else, I shoulda stayed in class
I have to wait 'til summer time to cut the blades of grass
I have this little bit of money, have to make it last
I have children to feed, I have a loving wife
I had a hard time comin that was nothin nice
I keep askin myself what am I doing wrong?
And they just look at me and tell me keep it movin on

[Chorus: Shara Worden]
They keep on sayin to me, keep movin on
But I don't know where to go, nowhere to go
Keep movin on
Keep movin on
Yeah you keep movin on
Keep movin on, keep movin on

[Verse 2]
It was like ninety-one, ninety-two
I remember people tellin us that ain't nobody signin you
There's no Italians or Puerto Ricans that's shinin through
Y'all should just go back and just do what y'all was designed to do
We ain't listened to none of that, we hardheaded
We took it back to the lab and then the God set it
We smoked L's, drank liquor and we got wetted
And everything we did back then was barbaric
Around ninety-four had some labels take notice
They said that Stoupe was the illest but that I ain't focused
The label execs needed to be explained dopeness
And that's around the time I thought that it became hopeless
We was still in the street, D was movin strong
I was failin out of school, it wasn't cool with moms
I was askin myself what was we doing wrong?
And why the industry say to keep it movin on


[Interlude: Shara Worden]
Sometimes, I, just, don't feel like keepin on (*2X*)

[Vinnie Paz]
I signed up cause they promised me some college money
I ain't the smartest muh'fucker but I'm not a dummy
They told me I would be stationed in places hot and sunny
I had a lot of pride, muh'fuckers got it from me
These people over here innocent, they never harmed me
My sergeant tried to convince me that they would try to bomb me
I feel like an outsider stuck inside this army
Everybody brainwashed, American zombies
I ain't realized how much it set me back
Until I lost my leg and then they sent me back
I don't have anything, now I'm left with scraps
From a government who created AIDS, invented crack
People told me not to join, I tried to prove 'em wrong
Now I'm homeless and I'm cold without no food that's warm
I keep asking myself what did I do that's wrong?
And the government tellin me to keep it movin on


[Vinnie Paz - over Chorus]
Yeah, a wise man once said
There is no progress, without struggle
I'm a believer in that shit
I struggled my whole life
Feel me on this here

[Shara Worden]
Ohhhhhhhh, keep movin, keep movin (Pazienza)
Keep movin, keep mooooooovin on
