Closer to God

lyrics

At twenty-four I thought I had seen it all
collecting kindling and lies
I'd lost my ticket and I'd missed my call
then I began to lose my mind

If this is Heaven, why don't I feel closer to God?
If this is what I'm after, why's it falling apart?
If this is Heaven, why don't I feel like I belong
where the righteous belong?
Closer to God

And when the smoke cleared I could see enough
to count the scales upon my eyes
I'd been cut up, gutted, cured and stuffed
according to my own design

If this is Heaven, why don't I feel closer to God?
If this is what I'm after, why's it falling apart?
If this is Heaven, why don't I feel like I belong
where the righteous belong?
Closer to God
