    Lyrics

    If heaven was a mile away
    Would I pack up my bags
    And leave this world behind?
    If heaven was a mile away
    Or save it all for you?

    If heaven was a mile away
    Would I, fill the tank up with gas
    And be out the front door in a flash
    Before reconsidering, this hell with you

    It ain't you it's the things you do
    It's tearing my heart in two
    I would of fell with you, to hell with you

    If heaven was a mile away
    And you could ride by the gates
    Would you try to run inside
    When it opens would you try to die today?

    Would you pray louder
    Finally believing His power?
    Even if you couldn't see
    But you could feel, would you still doubt him?
    How would you start acting?

    Would you try to put the ki's down?
    Thinking every drug sell
    That you make in the streets He can see now
    Would a fiend even want to get high
    Would he stop smoking?
    If he knew on his own two feet he could just stroll in

    To get away and escape from the craziness
    And I bet you there's a heaven for an atheist
    It's hard taking this racist planet
    Where they take another brother in a handcuff
    Even if he innocent nigga get on the car
    Put your motherfucking hands up

    Thinking I'm a lose it, my mom's in chemo
    Three times a week, yo keep trying but people
    Is hard and God your young soldier's not so bold
    But needs you, this world's my home but world I would leave

    If heaven was a mile away
    Would I pack up my bags
    And leave this world behind?
    If heaven was a mile away
    Or save it all for you?

    If heaven was a mile away
    Would I, fill the tank up with gas
    And be out the front door in a flash
    Before reconsidering, this hell with you

    It ain't you it's the things you do
    It's tearing my heart in two
    I would of fell with you, to hell with you

    Nigga what you think
    I'ma stop building, I'ma stop feeling
    Like I'm Amistad's great, great grandchildren
    How I'm not gonna want to make millions

    Since the quarter water days
    In the hallways making fake coke
    Pass with the Reeses Pieces wrapper
    In my mouth all day

    But then my style has quite a while
    That same type as Ill and Al Skratch
    Game time to them cats never looked back
    Cristal blowing dub sacks

    That's when it all just hit me
    You see the broads and Bentleys is nothing less
    My nigga spend it all with me
    I'd give it all away quickly

    Just to hear them all I'd buy some new kicks
    Free of any autographs so not to be recognized
    Forgive me, it's becoming unbearable, making hits is easy
    Put a famous bitch on the hook
    There you go with a platinum CD

    I know you heard the noise
    Preachers touching on altar boys
    Sodomizing not realizing
    God is watching before the Lord

    How can they do the devil's work?
    A man giving another man head in church
    Hell, it hurts just to fathom the thought
    Wishing that I fled the earth

    If heaven was a mile away
    Would I pack up my bags
    And leave this world behind?
    If heaven was a mile away
    Or save it all for you?

    If heaven was a mile away
    Would I, fill the tank up with gas
    And be out the front door in a flash
    Before reconsidering, this hell with you

    It ain't you it's the things you do
    It's tearing my heart in two
    I would of fell with you, to hell with you

    You trapped in your own hell
    Every day I wakeup I'm blessed
    Every day you wakeup
    And breathe another breath you blessed

    It's all the niggaz runnin' around, talk about I'm fucked up
    I gotta get on, I gotta, I'm in a grind
    I'm fucked up, yeah we're all in the grind
    But look at the beautiful shit around you, it's a beautiful life

    All my niggaz locked up, keep yo heads up
    Heaven's just a mile away, I'm talkin' heaven on earth
    Ain't got nottin' to do with money
    Got nottin' to do with non-material

    I'm talkin' about heaven in your own heart
    In your own world baby, in your own existence
    To my moms look at me baby
    I love you girl, your boy is shinin', God's son
