"Heaven Is Falling" as written by and Brett Gurewitz....
As I walk beneath the valley
I shall fear no evil
cause thanks to King George and his rainbow cabinet
today murder is legal

God I know that it's wrong
to kill my brother for what he hasn't done
and as the planes blacken the sky
it sounds like heaven is falling
it sounds like heaven is falling
you promised me a new day a dawning
I've seen a thousand points of light
like so many points of hatred, shame and horror

God I want to be a man
but I don't want to die with a rifle in my hand
and as the planes blacken the sky
it sounds like heaven is falling
it sounds like heaven is falling
you promised me a new day a dawning
well nothing here looks new to me
but a score of mothers' sons
caught 'tween the devil and the deep blue sea

    General CommentButchered, is what was done here. This is such a bad cover that I have to laugh at it. That is all I can do when I hear it.

    General CommentYeah, I don't understand why they didn't just have bad religion put their version on it. But, noone should do bad religion songs, except bad religion. This song was originally about the gulf war, but I guess they decided to use it for The Iraqi war...
