Earth To Heaven - Esperanza Spalding

Written by:Esperanza Spalding

 

Thought and strength and breath

Ain't much else left

Better have your fill before you know it's over

 

Say the natural laws

 

And if the heavenly goddess should call

 

Is it heaven at all sober

 

These poor drunks don't know

Money won't flow

On the other side they're sure to go

 

Withdrawing

 

From the need to achieve

 

Be careful what you believe

In strong

 

'Fore you carry it on over

There are no perfect amends here

You get to just keep on getting there getting there

 

There's no promise or test here

You get to just keep on getting there getting there soldier

 

No virgins or saints here

You get to just keep on getting there getting there

 

All the children and evil

Are even here just getting there

 

Warm hands cross on their shoulders

 

Kings die ringed in gold

Slaves die consoled

 

On the other side a mixed reward

 

Is better

 

Like a pearly resort

 

Except without a report from hell

 

How on earth can you tell

 

Burn or charge or hate

Judgment debate

How to curse a sin and compensate

 

Their burden

 

Of upholding the law

 

But if the heavenly boss turns out

 

To be ruling without order

 

All legacies end here

You get to just keep getting there getting there

 

No promise or test here

You get to just keep getting there getting there

 

No virgins or saints here

You get to just keep on getting there

 

All aliens illegal

 

Crossing even here

 

They come to just keep on getting there

 

Statesmen lost in their

 

Borders
