In The Hoosegow

(Heaven's Not High)

Angel angel praying toward the dawn
Adonai Eloheynu Melech Ha'Olam
The big old boss the flocks of Abraham call
Pater Noster Yahweh Allah et al
You've been taken in by a fake oasis
A mirage like a pause in the very basis
Shed your feathers
You know you'd better get ready to be born

They're gonna throw you in the hoosegow angel
Straight outta the womb
Gonna lock you up in a little room
In the hoosegow angel
You will brood in gloom forever

They're gonna throw you in the hoosegow angel
In a single cell
Lying prone all alone in a living hell
In the hoosegow angel
You're condemned to dwell forever

Angel angel percolating in the sun
Your turn in eternity is almost done
You've gotta go now to live among the heathen
All burdened with the servitude of consciousness and breathing
It's a hassle
Your ass'll learn real fast though
The longer you spend hating it the longer it'll last
Here comes the deluge
I really hate to tell you what happens when you're born

They're gonna throw you in the hoosegow angel
Where you'll learn your worth
Gonna send you down to planet earth
In the hoosegow angel
You will curse your birth forever

They're gonna throw you in the hoosegow angel
On a rocky ball
Make do with a view of an empty wall
In the hoosegow angel
You're forgotten altogether

When you drop from the bottom with the other heretics
You'll go falling out the hollow with a kismet on your lips
All mumble-grumble you'll tumble you'll stumble around
Alive on arrival when you hit the ground
Damn it's ghostly at least where you'll be most
Removed from the groove of the heavenly host
Now Heaven's ending
Expect to be repenting the second you get born

They're gonna throw you in the hoosegow angel
In a dungeon tower
Where every second feels just like an hour
And in the hoosegow angel
Every hour feels like forever

They're gonna throw you in the hoosegow angel
In a vacuum space
Kept apart from the heart of the human race
In the hoosegow angel
You're ashamed and disgraced forever
