Just Another Near Death Experience

They told me that my heart stopped
And that they donít know why
They told me that I was dead
But that I just wouldnít die
 
I told them they shouldnít be surprised
I could tell them what they wanted to know
This wasnít the first time and it wonít be the last
I donít want to stay, but they wonít let me go
 
 
Because the devil donít want me
And Heaven wonít have me
Iíve been dead and gone before
Iím too cool for the devil to hate  
And too hot for the pearly gate
And they just donít want to deal with me no more
 
 
Iíve been electrified, crucified, and suicide
Iíve been called the man with nowhere to go
So this purgatory is my forever home
And I will just make the most out of what I know
 
Iíve been a pastor and a demon
Hoping they would make up their goddamned mind
But the owners of both Heaven and Hell
Tell me that I am just one of a kind
 

So the devil donít want me
And Heaven wonít have me
Iíve been dead and gone before
Iím too cool for the devil to hate  
And too hot for the pearly gate
And they just donít want to deal with me no more
 
 
So I go on and on, and on and on
There is no pleasure in this existence
But I will keep on trying to keep on dying
At least they canít damn me for my persistence

Author's Note
Idea from a saying I heard a long time ago. It just came to mind and when I thought about it, I figured I could make an odd fantasy story out of it. Thank you for taking the time to read it.
