"Saint Peter's Gate" as written by and Chris De Burgh....
I was lost in the dark, and the fear was in my heart
All around me, the forest and the rain
Then with the flash of a light, I saw it in the night
I must be getting near, Saint Peter's Gate!

When I went through the door, he was standing in the hall
An old man with a beard of shining white
He said "I've been expecting you, let me show you to your room"
And he took me all the way by candlelight
And lying there on the bed, a book, black and red
My name was written on the front in gold
And when I opened it up, there were pictures of my life
And a voice began to call from down below

Nobody will get through, nobody
Not even you, can escape the Judgment Day
Nobody will be spared, Heaven is only there
For the ones who satisfy them at, Saint Peter's Gate!

"Come with me" said that old man, as he took me by the hand
"There is someone here that you have seen before
In this room on the left, a man who did his best
To bring joy and happiness to one and all
But in that room on the right, a dictator in life
We've been waiting for him here, as you can tell
For all the blood the he's spilled, and for all the ones he's killed
We condemn him to eternity in Hell

Nobody will get through, nobody
Not even you, can escape the Judgment Day
Nobody will be spared, Heaven is only there
For the ones who satisfy them at, Saint Peter's Gate!"

I woke up with the dawn, there was someone in my room
A woman like an Angel, all in white
And then she told me "You must run, for your time has yet to come
Go now, before they change their minds
And from the window I saw, a thousand or more
Bringing that Dictator to his knees
And his cries broke the sound of my footsteps on the ground
As I made it to the safety of the trees

Nobody will get through, nobody
Not even you, can escape the Judgment Day
Nobody will be spared, Heaven is only there
For the ones who satisfy them at, Saint Peter's Gate!

Nobody will get through, nobody
Not even you, can escape the Judgment Day
Nobody will be spared, Heaven is only there
For the ones who satisfy them at, Saint Peter's Gate!

Saint Peter's Gate!
They are waiting
