The Great Forgiver

Album: Grey Britain (2009)
  • When I died I walked into the light, but what I saw I didn't like.
    Well I went to heaven but I didn't go in.

    They don't condemn the sinners they condemn the sin.
    Heaven is full of fucking scum,
    If they live like pigs they will die like one.
    There will never be enough forgiveness.

    St Peter I must confess, I'm more of a devil than my life suggests,
    Tell god its appreciated but I was born in hell, hell is where we made it.
    And if god is a great forgiver, then all the scum will be there with me.
    They bury the men but not the sin, they just say a prayer.

    And take them with them, Heaven is full of fucking scum,
    If they live like pigs they will die like one.
    There will never be enough forgiveness.

    St Peter I must confess, I'm more of a devil than my life suggests,
    Tell god its appreciated but I was born in hell, hell is where we made it.
    St Peter I must confess, I'm more of a devil than my life suggests,
    Tell god its appreciated but I was born in hell, hell is where we made it Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER FRANK CARTER, LAURENT BENJAMIN BARNARD, LEE PHILLIP BARRATT, STEPHEN WILLIAM RICHARD CARTER, STUART LESLIE GILI-ROSS
