Once he sang to himself
No microphone for no one else
In days when they would leave
He whispered words into a tape machine
No the world was dark then
No Maxwell buffed it like an emerald pin
He wore on his heart
Unleashed the wave of patriarchs and kings

You make your own little heaven my friend
You make your own little heaven
You make your own little heaven my friend
Yeah yeah yeah

Then a light intervened
Into his bedroom window when
He was only thirteen
But sure glittered littering the scene
He fell to his feet
His body gripped by forces made him writhe
To an alien beat blinded he cried against
The wooden floor uttering those words repeat

You make your own little heaven my friend
You make your own little heaven
You make your own little heaven my friend
Yeah yeah yeah

Beginning to flow
Ooh Maxwell would embrace the power
Of stars fell to the stage
Renouncing his charm the tabloid
Made us a pyre and too high to stack
The make-up bulging too before the rack
Strange in this height of fame
In fractured dreams the premonitions
They came and caught in a flash
Whole sea of lights with chrome revolvers blast

You make your own little heaven my friend
You make your own little heaven
You make your own little heaven my friend
Yeah yeah yeah

Once the mansions were few
But welcomed those like me and you
And we lived here in the shade
'Til Maxwell Demon stormed the barricade
Heard on BBC One
They found the body by the gun
Wearing the Maxwell wig

You make your own little heaven my friend
You make your own little heaven
You make your own little heaven my friend
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah
