Heaven on Earth is what I need
But I feel I'm in Hell every time I breathe

from Lupe Fiasco – Around My Way Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The line sets contrast between heaven and hell. Everybody wants Heaven on earth, but it’s much closer to Hell.

Lupe also does a play on “in hell” (inhale) to compliment “breathe”. This is because all the air pollution makes him feel bad every breath he takes.
