Track Name: Eye On The Prize (Parts 1 & 2)
Keep an eye on the prize, and on the road ahead
Keep an eye on the prize, and on the road ahead
Some wait to be reborn and find themselves dead

You may have it bad, and you may be forlorn
You may have it bad, and you may be forlorn
Don’t stick round in the eye of the storm

Darker days are comin’ so its been said
Darker days be comin’ so its been said
It don’t take no Einstein to see clouds ahead

Devil’s on my shoulder, angel’s in my ear
Devil’s on my shoulder, angel’s in my ear
I pray to God, they’d both just disappear

Just keep an eye on the prize, and on the road ahead
Keep an eye on the prize, and on the road ahead
Don’t wait to be reborn and find yourself dead

Keep an eye on the prize,
and on the road ahead [Gang Vocals]
Keep an eye on the prize,
and on the road ahead [Gang Vocals]
Some wait to be reborn and find themselves dead

Young guns fire away, so I hit the street
Young guns fire away, so I hit the street
Sooner or later we’ll all be obsolete

Keep an eye on the prize,
and on the road ahead [Gang Vocals]
Keep an eye on the prize,
and on the road ahead [Gang Vocals]
Sooner or later
What [Gang Vocals]
Sooner or later
Huh [Gang Vocals]
We’ll all wind up dead
