People
Keep on learnin'
Soldiers
Keep on warrin'
World,
Keep on turnin'
Cause it wont be too long.
Powers
Keep on lyin'
While your people
Keep on dyin
World,
Keep on turnin'
Cause it wont be too long.

I'm so darn glad he let me try it again,
Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin.
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then.
Gonna keep on tryin' till I reach the highest ground.

Teachers,
Keep on teachin'
Preachers,
Keep on preachin'
World, keep on turnin'
Cause it wont be too long.

Oh, no
Lovers,
Keep on lovin'
While believers
Keep on believin'
Sleepers,
Just stop sleepin'
Cause it wont be too long.
Oh, no!

I'm so darn glad he let me try it again,
Cause my last time on earth I lived a whole world of sin.
I'm so glad that I know more than I knew then.
Gonna keep on tryin' till I reach the highest ground.

An Stevie knows that, uh, nobody's gonna bring me down.
Till I reach the highest ground.
'Cause me n Stevie, see, were gonna be a sailin'
On the funky sound
Till I reach the highest ground.
Bustin' out, an I'll break you out, cause I'm
Sailin' on.
Till I reach the highest ground
Just, uh, sailin' on sailin' on the higher ground
Till I reach the highest ground
