"Heaven Coming Down" as written by and Jeffrey Scott/chatwood Martin....
With nothing to lose you'd waste away
Obscure in exile
They've witnessed the times
You've gone astray
Whose fault? now you're thinking...

There's nothing to prove
A message from the crowd
To the shore...

And it feels now
Just like heaven's coming down
Your soul shakes free
As its conscience hits the ground

So strange are the ways,
They all have changed
Still life it stays the same
A break from the past
Could make it last
Maybe just a little longer

There's nothing to prove
A message from the crowd
To the shore...

You surrender
Love under will
Rest assured you're adored

And it feels now
Just lie heaven's coming down
Your soul shakes free
As its conscience hits the ground

This time, no tears,
Just one last chance to see you prove
Stay strong, no fears
There is a change that's

Coming through
Hold on my love
Hold on...

    General CommentI know Jeff likes to use occult symbolism a lot, and the three words 'love under will' have a very suggestive meaning, as part of the statement 'Love is the Law, Love under Will', which is part of the Law of Thelema, or True Will. This is Aleister Crowley's turf.

    General CommentThis is a tricky one. The imagery's very vivid and pleasantly haphazard, but, the meaning's fairly simple, if not easy to describe. It sounds as though the singer's talking about/talking to a person who has fallen into their 'normal' life to the point of being locked in it. Acceptance bringing defeat, that sort of thing, chained by their history. The 'narrator', in this case, is describing the sort of change it would take - namely, finding love in a new direction - in order to break free from the norm. It almost guarentees a complete change of the person in question and their overall way of life, but, he's promising that it will become a change for the best. "Heaven Coming Down", in this case, is the proverbial 'bliss' falling onto the person all at once, crashing and painful, but in the end, much better than he/she has been living.

    General Commentgood song, but theres a mistake in the lyrics.

    "A message from the crowd
    To the shore..."

    should be:

    "snapshot from the crowd to the shore, baby"

    General CommentThis song is absolutely beautiful. The arpeggios in the guitar almost make you feel like you're in free fall and never want to come down.

    I remember seeing Tea Party at the Friendship Festival 2003. The moment they started playing Heaven Coming Down it started to pour. As if God was saying "I heard you, man." This is a song that I like to play when I need that lift. And it is a constant reminder of that good time.

    If you listen to the words, regardless of the use of the occult references or just the broken meter of the lyrics, the title "Heaven Coming Down" just implies being showered with grace. The rest of the song is related to rebirth. But what's more important is that if you close your eyes and don't even listen to the lyrics, you feel the meaning.

    Anyone agree or dod I just sound like a fanatic?
