Heaven

Album: Hope for the Hopeless (2008)
  • Beyond the rules of religion
    The cloth of conviction
    Above all the competition
    Where fact and fiction meet

    There's no color lines or casts or classes
    There is no fooling the masses
    Whatever faith you practice
    Whatever you believe

    Heaven, heaven
    What the hell is heaven?
    Is there a home for the homeless?
    Is there hope for the hopeless?

    Throw away your misconceptions
    There's no walls around heaven
    There's no codes you got to know to get in
    No minutemen or border patrol

    You must lose all your earthly possession
    Leave behind your weapon
    You cannot buy your salvation
    There is no pot of gold

    Heaven, heaven
    What the hell is heaven?
    Is there a home for the homeless?
    Is there hope for the hopeless?

    Heaven ain't got no prisons
    No government no business
    No banks or politicians
    No armies and no police

    Castles and cathedrals crumble
    Pyramids and pipelines tumble
    The failure keeps you humble
    Leads us closer to peace

    Heaven, heaven
    What the hell is heaven?
    Is there a home for the homeless?
    Is there hope for the hopeless? Writer/s: BRETT DENNEN
    Publisher: Downtown Music Publishing
