Too Close To Heaven

I was born when they tapped on the moon I knew no innocence no golden spoon With less worth for a place in the rat race Desperate smile in my sad mama's fat face For some substance I left my home town I went away and just out of tune I fell down on my feet I felt so incomplete I just found a hole in the bottom of my soul Played my four-string day in and day out Became a banjo pop star all about Seven cars and diamond rings Friend and girls and all such things I could not stand to be alone But no heart in the crowd just booze in the jar and no crowd anymore when money ran out so far I fell down on my face I fell through trhe space I fell through the hole in the bottom of my soul I went crazy all shit hit the fan Lost my name, well I killed a man Burned out mind and a heart full of beer My bed for night it was shame, it was fear But then one morning a flickering light In the rain from the right side well it hit my eyes And I realized it must be a loving god or some stuff like that and then I fell down on my knees Lord please, end this misery He pulled me through the hole in the bottom of my soul Now you people listen carefully A soul in holes that is no tragedy Shall it ever happens to your soul Don't waste your time trying to fill the hole Cause if the hole is really deep enough It will be a subway for your loving god It will be a subway for his grace And he'll pull you through So fall down on your knee May Lord end your misery He will oull yout through the hole in the bottom of your soul Bottom, bottom, bottom of your soul Bottom, bottom, bottom there is a hole Bottom, bottom, there is a hole At the bottom of your soul But the Lord he will pull you through The Lord, the Lord he will pull you through

Oh my mother she went to heaven And the last word that she said Son you won't never follow me Because you're so mean & bad Oh but I want to go to heaven I want to see my mama there But when I stand before the gates of heaven With a bucket full of sins Lord I'm a bad ass motherfucker But won't you please let me in So I'm a motherless pilgrim I miss her everywhere I want to go to heaven I want to see my mother there I want to play the golden harp I want to hear my mama sing But when I stand before the gates of heaven With a bucket full of sins Lord I'm a bad ass motherfucker But won't you please let me in Oh my mother she went to heaven And the last word that she said Son you won't never follow me Because you're so mean & bad Oh but I want to go to heaven I want to see my mama there But when I stand before the gates of heaven With a bucket full of sins Lord I'm a bad ass motherfucker But won't you please let me in

Falling 05:29
Well I'm a falling I'm a falling I'm falling out of light Well last night I was bored I went out of town At the bars met a neighbour who was hanging around And I said to the pal come on let's have a drink And let's watch the moon preparing to sink So we went out with a bottle of gin Heads to the sky with a foolish grin And suddenly I started to cry Well I'm used to going to work I'm used to goin' to stores I'm used to doing beer I'm used to doin' whores Down there in the road lies my golden shirt In the dirt And I am falling out of light Well I'm a'falling like a spark in the night Well I'm a'falling out of light Well I'm a'falling like a spark in the night Well my neighbour said, brother this is true I know what you mean I am thinking like you But you should know that you could come back home And he looked in my eyes and he went all aflame Like a torch in the dark it was really strange He said "you're like me" and then he passed away And I am falling out of light Well I'm a'falling like a spark in the night Well I'm a'falling out of light Well I'm a'falling like a spark in the night

(Find me in the blue sky) (Find me in the dark cloud passing by) Ah, early one morning, Valentine day Long distance phone call so far way My darling told me a bull's eyes hit Well she wanted my body quick quick quick Well I packed in my body, legs and shirt Drove to the airport and right through the dirt Bought me a ticket a coast to coast flight I wished to see my darling just this night Well I entered the airplane window seat Next to the cockpit a scent of weed I didn't mind began to relax Said hello to my neighbour, well a dentist named Zach Then the airplane checked out, wackled and wobbed Flat out ahead and then it took off Hey hey, like a rocket in the sky Hey hey, to my baby gonna fly Find me, find me in the blue sky Find me, oh in the dark cloud passing by Find me, find me in the rain upon your skin Find my body down Then suddenly nine-thousand feet in the air Well an angel walked in with golden hair "Ladies and gentlemen" he said, "don't get up" Well I bring you a message from your hidden god It's time for you now, you must choose If you wanna rest your soul or if you wanna lose Here is a message for you that may hurt Well your soul is from heaven and your body's from dirt Then the angel vanished, I looked outside I saw a another plane coming near the right side Thought of my darling, the plane crashed into mine Death and disaster but on Valentine Well a mighty mighty cloud of blood and cerosene And I stuck deep inside, in front of me I've seen Oh, oh, a flying human leg I couldn't make it out was it mine or one from Zach And that was the moment, well that I could decide My soul should come home to the heavenly side My body will burn in this world of mud But my soul will be rested in the hand of god Find me, find me in the blue sky Find me, ah in the dark cloud passing by Find me, find me in the rain upon your skin Find my body down So this is my present for it's Valentine You can get all my body but my soul it is mine If you ever got the taste of blood and cerosene Oh remember who I was and my body near the scene Find me, find me in the blue sky Find me in the dark cloud passing by Find me, find me in the rain well upon your skin Find my body down Find my body down

I’m like a dried dried out river Waiting inn the desert sun Just like a dried dried out river I'm waiting the water for to come Well my eyes're wide wide open Filled up with dust and with stones And the bones of the pilgrim Who died here all alone But the flood it will come It will spill every stone to the shore And the seed it will grow And there will be no drought never more And I cried cried the desert Filled dried out river with tears All left white white whiute salt here Glisten in the sunburnt sphere And I tried tried so hard I tried to unlock the gates well of dear greed and denial all which behind the water waits Athe flood it will come It will spill every stone to the shore And the seed it will grow And there will be no drought never more And I sighed sighed for mercy Send me a shower or flood To delight me, I'm thirsty Oh, make me a fountain for god I’m like a dried dried out river Waiting inn the desert sun Just like a dried dried out river I'm waiting the water for to come

Reach out your hand Rip off my skin with your hand Rip off my skin with your hand, with your hand Ah,see my blood is pouring over the land Like a dark old wave breaking at the strand Rip off my skin with your hand Reach out your hand Reach out your hand Open up my chest with your hand Open my rip cage with your hand, with your hand Ah feel my heart is beating under your hand Like a blind bird is creeping over the strand Open my rip cage with your hand Reach out your hand Now Jesus tell me what you gonna say, no no no Reach out your hand and touch my heart & we will know If there's a need for every tear & a cause for all the blood And if death is right upon me it's the coming of the flood The end of all the sorrow & the end of all the pain Reach out your hand & heal the dread & make me sane Reach out your hand, reach out your hand Reach out your hand Rip off my skin with your hand Open my rip cage with your hand, with your hand Ah,see my blood is pouring over the land Like a dark old wave breaking at the strand Ah feel my heart is beating under your hand Like a blind bird is creeping over the strand Open my rip cage with your hand Reach out your hand Reach out your hand

One of those days When I was going to see my brother in town To give him a letter Written by our father & sealed by our mother Down in those times When we used to count the squirrels at home Or killing the ants Just to kill time Or to fill it With tiny drops of guiltiness Drizzle of remorse And forgot Where we've been coming from Or why And we've been sleeping So tired then. Sleeping Sleep Sleep (Sleep) What have you got there in your mouth? I said to my brother Is it a rubber cake? (Rubber cake) Feathers & pearls? Or is it the taste of a stranger? Something you should share? (Something you should share) "You are drifting," I said Why? Are you a hipster, songster, gangster or trickster? Because if this is just a dream Then you Must be very strong (very strong) "Indeed," he said I am Rain It's a rain Rain Falling rain Rain Where the rain comes from That's where I belong Focking rain So that's then we left town With his pickup, a Dodge Getaway car & astray And astray we were driving Away from them lights of the city Where comfort & complacency reigns West we were driving West (West) (West) Interstate, drifting (Passing places) Passing places, meadows, ditches (Ditches) Places bland & sad & wasted Good at most just to depose A dead body, if you have to And doubtlessly no place Where you wanted a stranger (Pressing) Pressing your face into the dirt And taking your breath (When the last) the last smell you got Is the pee of a trucker Heading to Milwaukee Or down to the Gulf of Mexico, who cares (Who cares) That's where we passed by That's where we were drifting Away (Away) And furthermore astray we went Drifting into the sticks And into the woods And into the depth & abyss And I thought to myself I should better take care Not to kill all them beetles & toads And them mice & them moles And them lizards & snails Baby snakes & God knows what else Has been crawling here Right where this four-wheeler Ploughed us a way through their life And my brother said Brother (Brother) Let's have us a shot Of dead butterfly blood Cold is the night & dark is the rain Go find yourself & won't you complain Tipping a toe into the river of pain Majestically floating under the endless rain Cold is the night & dark is the rain Go find yourself & won't you complain And then as we stood In the midst of the vast empty night Blood on the needle Blood on the tyre Blood on the cross The roads been so solid The moon been so cold The clouds been so gloomy The stars been so dark Like dead broken bulbs in a feckless traffic light On the empty crossroad of our mind That's when my brother moaned And stared into his phone (and starred into his phone) No reception As he cried & he cried Lord Lord, damn Lord My trouble so high, my fear it is rising. Creatures & beasts raging Deep in the den of my sick sicken self I'm stuck in the darkness (stuck in the darkeness) stuck in alone And only my brother might know Why I am drifting And drifting away (away) But he's drifting himself, breaking into pieces Which been blasting slowly hovering, floating Floating in all different directions to the most distant places Of the focking universe So Lord, please Lord Please help me (help me & heal me) Please set me free Lord From the need of my unleashed sickness And from the turmoil of my drifting mind Please Lord Put together (put together) the floundering parts Of my scattered self (of my scattered self) So widely dispersed Please heal me, Lord! (Please heal me Lord) (Please) please spread your grim angels Your armies & tanks And whistling missiles, oh Lord Please spread them Up to the skies And to the stars And to the moon And to the clouds And let them focking rain on me. Cold is the night & dark is the rain Go find yourself & won't you complain Tipping a toe into the river of pain Majestically floating under the endless rain Rain (Cold is the night & dark is the rain) There's no rainbow (Go find yourself & won't you complain) Rain (Tipping a toe into the river of pain) Falling rain (Majestically floating under the endless rain) Rain (Cold is the night & dark is the rain) Hear the wind blows (Go find yourself & won't you complain) Into the middle of the earth Where the humming birds dwell All the highways, mountains & the trees Focking rain is falling on & on Every/s cover's washed away from me Highway's like a diamond in the sun Highway's like a diamond in the sun Rain Is getting colder now Rain From the frozen clouds Rain I'm getting older somehow Snow's falling down And covering me Oh white rain is floating over me Oh white rain it makes me blind Every thing/sin is floating down to the sea White rain will drive me out of my mind White rain will drive me out of my mind Dark is the rain & cold is the night Don't be afraid & you'll be alright This will be running into the sea of delight Swim down the river, dive for the light Rain (Dark is the rain & cold is the night) It's a rain again (Don't be afraid & you'll be alright) Rain (This will be running into the sea of delight) Never been the same (Swim down the river, dive for the light) Rain (Don't be afraid & you'll be alright) Everything is new (Dark is the rain & cold is the night) How will I come through Dam/n that rain All the highways, mountains & the trees Focking rain is falling on & on Every/s cover's washed away from me Highway's like a diamond in the sun Highway's like a diamond in the sun Rain It's a rain Rain Falling rain Rain Where the rain comes from That's where I belong Focking rain That's where I belong Focking rain We applaud every man Every woman Every child Every dog & cat & cow Elephants Every pidgeon, crow & caterpillar Every snake, snail, lizard Bug or ant Every spider, worm & maggot In the fruit or in the flesh For if they were sturdy in life Doing God's will And occasionally Smile Cold is the night & dark is the rain Go find yourself & won't you complain Tipping a toe into the river of pain Majestically floating under the endless rain This will be running into the sea of delight Dark is the rain & cold is the night Don't be afraid & you'll be alright Swim down the river, dive for the light Don't be afraid & you'll be alright Swim down the river, dive for the light
