Story

"Your Heaven"... To all religious solicitors and prognosticators... God and I made a deal a long time ago. I'll do the best I can and he'll forgive me when I screw up. So if he's got a place for you where I can't get in, he must have known I wouldn't enjoy myself there anyway.

Lyrics

Your Heaven 1. I woke up in the station, heard the train whistle whine Bleary eyed and blinkin' in the cold light of day Station master said, "I believe they left you behind" I said I don't know where I'm headed, I guess I really don't mind 2. He said "You're goin' nowhere boy and getting' there fast" "Imagine that I said, I'm in the same place as you" He said "But my reward's in heaven, and my bags are packed" But that train's for the chosen, so don't even ask Chorus... Oh hell I guess your heaven, and mine ain't the same You've got a fence around yours, mine's an open range Oh hell I guess your heaven ain't the place for me There ain't a lock on mine, but somehow... you think you've got the key 3. Well, I ain't afraid of dyin', it's a natural fact But I'm kind of scared you think it's up for you to decide My final destination, or if my train's on track 'Cause where we're all headed I don't think we can know it exact Chorus... You can have your heaven; I won't be takin' that line It sounds a little stuffy, there's a party in mine Oh hell I guess your heaven ain't the place for me There ain't a lock on mine, but somehow... you think you've got the key Chorus... You got a strange salvation needs an engraved invitation, I'll pass I can only hope that mine might have a little more class Oh hell I guess your heaven ain't the place for me There ain't a lock on mine, but somehow... you think you've got the key There ain't a lock on mine, but somehow... you think you've got the key
