"I'll Be In The Sky" as written by and Bobby Ray Jr. Simmons....
I'll be in the sky
I'll be there
Ooh all right

I'll be in the sky

Yea yea yea
Yea yea yea
Yea
I'll be in the sky

Remember when I leave,
That the one in the mirror ain't me,
It's just someone that I call B.O.B,
It's kinda me but it's not,
It's just a mask that I got,
So that I can rap and get off my block,
Reminiscin my past when I was a todler,
Sittin in grass and playin with blocks,
Failing my classes now I'm on lockdown,
Now writin and readin alot,
Money and weed is in my shoe box now,
While I'm tryina get me a glock,
Cause I thought I was at the end of my line,
Then I find out it was all in my mind,
That's why I'm here to end all the fear,
We all gon die and leave from here like

I was a man with no name,
Now I'm attributing mo fame,
But all of this ain't gonna matter when I a die and say good bye so long,
Sianara I'll have to catch you tomorra baby cause baby,

I'll be in the sky
I'll be there
Ooh all right

I'll be in the sky

Yea yea yea
Yea yea yea
Yea
I'll be in the sky

Everyone here gonna die one day,
So while I'm here I'm a find my way,
That's my forte,
That's why I'm here,
Shit to open up your ears,
And speak this real.

Beatin down the block with a shoot ya,
The gold teeth don't really match with the suit,
Nowerdays folk would rather rap than go to school,
Cause they feel that if they black then they gotta have it too,
But ya'll don't really seen that there,
After all everybody wanna kick back,
They wanna sit back,
They wanna sip Goose,
They wanna get down,
They wanna get loose,
They wanna get blown,
They wanna see the truth,
They wanna get old just like you,
But since they ain't nobody gon be responsable,
I'm a gonna have to be the one to show,

I was a man with no name,
Now I'm attributing mo fame,
But all of this ain't gonna matter when I a die and say good bye so long,
Sianara I'll have to catch you tomorra baby cause baby,

I'll be in the sky
I'll be there
Ooh all right

I'll be in the sky

Yea yea yea
Yea yea yea
Yea
I'll be in the sky

I'll be there
Ooh all right
I'll be there

I'll be there
Ooh all right
I'll be there

I'll be there
Ooh all right
I'll be there

I'll be there
Ooh all right
I'll be there.

    My Interpretationvery outkast-esque, even running the alien theme in the music video too :P This song is definitely talking about the facade and alternative "face" that he put on to achieve fame. After putting the alternate "face" on he morphs into a stereotypical pop star, such as dare I say it, soulja boy; failing classes, getting high, "getting money". The chorus reminds us that as we die, the superficial and pointless fortunes will be obsolete, while making a difference is what the modern artists should strive for. The next verse reflects the garbage spewed by modern day rappers; talking about their futile wealth, getting high, complete irresponsibility. attempting to create reform, Bobby Ray talks about the responsibility he must bear, and how he must lead by example. He hopes that he might have made a difference in his lifetime. hope this helps :D

    General CommentComing to terms with mortality.

    And the line is "they wanna sip Jack," not "they wanna sit back"
