Barry, Barry, he's with Mary
Look like they could fly
Grandma's off her medicine
I think that I know why

People standing naked
Outside in the yard
A power ball slot machine
Looking for the winning card

Trying to get my mind straight now
It's a little bit narrow but I know somehow
'Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal'
But you know thou always will

Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Taking 'em down, board by board

Cheap vulgar innocence
Wears a wedding dress
Homophobic Hypocrites
Scaring us half to death

Journalistic lap dogs
Can't seem to find the truth
Crystal meth with the paymaster
Sipping on a hundred proof

Ain't you so hip now?
You sure look cool
Wonder what the price will be
For acting like such a fool

Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Taking 'em down, board by board

See the people crying
See the people crying
See the people crying
See the people crying

Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Taking 'em down, board by board

So I guess it'll never end
Brother, Hell, enemies, friends
Fire's burning outta control
In my soul tonight

There's just no hope for me
Might as well nail me to a tree
Here I am, just another case
Who cannot see the light

I guess I can't take a hint
Of what was said and what was meant
Somehow we always comes out blind
When it comes to our hearts

Heaven is a lonely place
Taking down those golden gates
Heaven is a lonely place
They're taking down those golden gates
Taking 'em down, board by board

See the people crying
See the people crying
See the people crying
See the people crying
