To get where you want to be You have to set a goal And keep your eyes on the prize Yeah [ VERSE 1: Master Ace ] Now let me take a second, just so I can beckon And call out an all-out rush just like wreckin Your brain as you strain to maintain, sustain The way you felt because I dealt you pain And pleasure, in every single measure You miss being kissed by this lyrical treasure Enjoy it at your leisure, cause it's gonna please ya Master Ace and Action again is here to ease ya Spirit, cause all you have to do is hear it And you'll catch a stroke

And say, "Damn, that brother broke!" Now I'm about to get off another funky hit off And if you think you're hangin, yo, I think you bit off More than you can chew, now how you gonna swallow it? Check the technique, see if you can follow it Like a path or a road made of yellow bricks Yo Steady Pace, go 'head and bust the mellow mix [ *DJ Steady Pace scratches* ] [ chorus ] So keep your eyes on the prize Keep your eyes on the prize Keep your eyes on the prize Keep your eyes on the prize And keep your eyes on the prize

[ VERSE 2: Master Ace ] Now I'm the capital A and what I'm sayin is conveyin That I romp, stomp and jump on any competition That's opposed to me, they can't get close to me You say that goes to see, what's that supposed to be? Some kind of challenge? I take you head up Beat up and eat up punks and won't let up But not with my fist or even with a deadly weapon But with my lyrics, yeah, that's how I'm steppin On all those that doubt me or my race is won And you critics are hopin that the Ace is done But now consider, this here little bit of Super commentary for those that are very Misdirected and lookin for some kinda angle

Censorship is their attempt to strangle The Master, they know that my words can motivate And set straight the crooked from their fate Don't you understand that rap is like a tool to me You're sellin what? You're actin likea fool to me Go get a job or maybe go and learn a trade And make the grade, that's how you get paid Steady's on the cut and Action is the posse Open your eyes and you'll see what I see Brothers are fallin, homegirls are callin Themselves independent, but yo, we're all in The same boat together, it doesn't matter whether You disagree, it's still reality - see [ chorus ]

[ VERSE 3: Master Ace ] Now where're we goin, where are we goin, which direction? Look at your reflection, now someone praise the resurrection Of a people many years considered kin To an animal, unlike those with lighter skin But that's the past and many knew it couldn't last By peaceful means or either by a rifle blast Or whatever, better late than never We finally arrived and yo, the dream has survived But many died tryin and they're the ones that paved the way Real live supermen and -women save the day So that we can live our life without ????? Racial oppression, mental anguish through aggression So realize what it took for us to rise And don't sleep but reap and keep your eyes on the prize

[ chorus ] [ VERSE 4: Master Ace ] Sing a song of six pence, a pocket full of crack Think you're sayin somethin, you ain't sayin jack Now tell me, what is goin on these days? From what I'm seein lately I'd say crime pays Cause somebody is gettin paid I think it's time to sprinkle some rain on the parade Now listen, take this as a word from the wise I'm not a prophet or a preacher, just a man with eyes And I've been witnessed the fitness of a neighborhood worsen You oughta hold a person-to-person Discussion with those who rose from that level Usin a broom or a mop or a shovel

Not on the corner waitin for the big pay-off It's not comin, so why not stay off The streets, believe me it beats bein sent up- State on a date with the man and bein pinned up In solitary, take advantage of your freedom I'm givin helpful hands cause you need em It's not all about the cash you make Sellin poison to boys and girls - you're a fake So what you got a cable, so what you got a BM? You love when the girls go, "Ooh, did you see him!" So what your pocket's filled with 20s and 10s You're gonna find out just how fast that ends Cause one day you'll be drivin round the way in your ride There'll be a bullet with your name on the side And if you don't believe what I'm tellin you, mack

When you're layin on the ground with a hole in your back Lookin up at the sky, gettin closer to hell Just remember Master Ace had a story to tell Yeah Yo Keep your eyes on the prize (5X) Keep your eyes on the prize (5X) [ *scratched letters* ] "p" "are" "i" "z" "e"
