forget about heaven lyrics – flotsam & jetsam

when the sun’s gone
and they cry laughing as they die
they won’t look into your eyes

moonlight makes it so clear
pierces the skin without the tears
the writing on the wall’s been smeared

tragedy, comedy
bite the hand that set ’em free
same old song with a different beat
comedy, tragedy

forget about heaven
and the book of fear
forget about heaven
we’re staying here

getting so high but staying low
stumbling, look out below
halfway’s too far to go

forget about heaven
and the book of fear
forget about heaven
we’re staying here

belief, disaster
domination by persuasion
nightmare is after
your ruined faith beckons grace

hold their heads down
when kneeling to pray
heaven lies the other way
cheated angels turned away

forget about heaven
and the book of fear
forget about heaven
we’re staying here

forget about heaven
forget about heaven
forget about heaven

when the sun’s gone
and they cry laughing as they die
