Shit, tired of gettin' shot at
Tired of gettin' chased by the police and arrested
Niggaz need a spot where we can kick it
A spot where we belong, that's just for us

Niggaz ain't gotta get all dressed up and be Hollywood
You know what I mean? Where do niggaz go when we die?
Ain't no heaven for a thug nigga, that's why we go to thugz mansion
That's the only place where thugz get in free and you gotta be a G
At thugz mansion

A place to spend my quiet nights, time to unwind
So much pressure in this life of mine, I cry at times
I once contemplated suicide, and woulda tried
But when I held that 9, all I could see was my momma's eyes

No one knows my struggle, they only see the trouble
Not knowin' it's hard to carry on when no one loves you
Picture me inside the misery of poverty
No man alive has ever witnessed struggles I survived

Prayin' hard for better days, promise to hold on
Me and my dawgs ain't have a choice but to roll on
We found a family spot to kick it
Where we can drink liquor and no one bickers over trick shit

A spot where we can smoke in peace, and even though we G's
We still visualize places, that we can roll in peace
And in my mind's eye, I see this place the players go in fast
I got a spot for us all, so we can ball, at thugz mansion

Ain't no place I'd rather be
Children, dead homies and family
Sky high, iced out paradise
In the sky

Ain't no place I'd rather be
Only place that's right for me
Chromed out mansion in paradise
In the sky

Will I survive all the fights and the darkness?
Trouble sparks, they tell me home is where the heart is, dear departed
I shed tattooed tears and couldn't sleep good
For multiple years, witness peers catch gunshots

Nobody cares, seen the politicians ban us
They'd rather see us locked in chains, please explain
Why they can't stand us, is there a way for me to change?
Or am I just a victim of things I did to maintain?

I need a place to rest my head
With the little bit of homeboys that remains, 'cause all the rest dead
Is there a spot for us to roll, if you find it
I'll be right behind ya, show me and I'll go

How can I be peaceful? I'm comin' from the bottom
Watch my daddy scream peace while the other man shot him
I need a house that's full of love when I need to escape
The deadly places slingin' drugs, in thugz mansion

Ain't no place I'd rather be
Children, dead homies and family
Sky high, iced out paradise
In the sky

Ain't no place I'd rather be
Only place that's right for me
Chromed out mansion in paradise
In the sky

Dear Momma, don't cry, your baby boy's doin' good
Tell the homies I'm in heaven and they ain't got hoods
Seen a show with Marvin Gaye last night, it had me shook
Drippin' peppermint Schnapps, with Jackie Wilson and Sam Cooke

Then some lady named Billie Holiday
Sang sittin' there kickin' it with Malcolm, 'til the day came
Little LaTasha sho' grown
Tell the lady in the liquor so that she's forgiven, so come home

Maybe in time you'll understand only God can save us
When Miles Davis cuttin' lose with the band
Just think of all the people that you knew in the past
That passed on, they in heaven, found peace at last

Picture a place that they exist, together
There has to be a place better than this in heaven
So right before I sleep, dear God, what I'm askin'
Remember this face, save me a place, in thugz mansion

Ain't no place I'd rather be
Children, dead homies and family
Sky high, iced out paradise
In the sky

Ain't no place I'd rather be
Only place that's right for me
Chromed out mansion in paradise
In the sky

Thugz mansion

Ain't no place I'd rather be
Children, dead homies and family
Sky high, iced out paradise
In the sky

Ain't no place I'd rather be
Only place that's right for me
Chromed out mansion in paradise
In the sky
