The Ghetto (Ain't Going Back) [feat. J Ivy]

The Ghetto (ain’t going back)


Maya was born in a town without pity – longed to be free from the bonds of the city

Working and saving what’s left of her wages

Dreaming of somedays; digesting the pages of the books she reads; two at a time

Far away…..

She’s gonna fly. Maya go fly


Tye waits on tables till the midnight hour

Doubles his efforts when things go sour

Notices the rainbow instead of the rain

Workin’ on skills past the point of the pain that he feels inside, wasting no time

Far away…..

He’s gonna fly. Tye gonna fly.


I ain’t going back to

The Ghetto

Ain’t going back no more



Wait a minute

No, you ain’t doin’ what you wanna do

You’re doing what you’re supposed do

And you’re doin’ it well
