Thugz Mansion

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
Where do niggaz go when we die?
Ain’t no heaven for a thug nigga
That’s why we go to thug mansion
That’s the only place where thugs get in free 
And you gotta be a G
At thug 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 thug’s mansion

[Chorus] [Anthony Hamilton]
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 thug’s mansion

[Chorus] (with minor ad lib variations)

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
Drinkin’ peppermint Schnapps
With Jackie Wilson
And Sam Cooke
Then some lady named Billie Holiday
Sang sittin there 
Kickin it with Malcolm
’Till the day came
Little LaTasha sho’ grown
Tell the lady in the liquor store
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
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 thug’s mansion

[Chorus] (x2) (ad libs)
