If You Want To Know

If you want to know why I have no faith in you
Take a look at my life, at the ruins you have left
When I thought you might be real, I left it in your hands
But that's when everything began to fall apart
When I still had hope is when it all went wrong
The bottom dropped out into a pit that fell to Hell
And I thought if there's a Hell, surely nirvana is above
A place beyond the pearly gates where souls rise when bodies die
But there's no evidence of happiness on Earth, no words from the sky
So if you want to know why people no longer believe in you
Take a look around at the dying world you claim to have made
Who would want to go to Heaven after living in this Godforsaken place
Knowing Earth's creator is up there in charge doing more of the same?
But where is this Utopia of yours hiding beyond the edge of space?
If you refuse to give us a clue I'd rather not leave it up to you
Give the job to me and I'll fix everything, I'll be the song that angels sing
Because I don't believe that Heaven is a place, but a gathering of souls
Who know no matter where they go after a lifetime of fucking each other over
There is a better way to co-exist even in a galaxy far, far away
Where a new hope rises with the celestial dawn burning away your shadow
As we become the pearls linking us in a necklace choking your arrogant throat
