"Outside the Palace" as written by and Gordon Gano....
I've been outside the palace
I've been outside the gate
I still don't feel that I made any mistake
When I got off that train

I felt my feet hit the ground
I didn't want to go
Where that gravy train was bound
God help me to see

I've been loved all along
And not to get too confused
Between the moonlight and the dawn
If I go back to the palace

I'll walk right through' the gate
Nobody knows how much here was at stake
I might get on that train
In feel the wheel on the train

Move it on up the mountain like a foregone fact
God help me to know
I've been in love my whole life
And not to get so confused

Between the struggle and the strife

    My InterpretationIt's a Christian song, isn't it? The "palace" is Heaven, I think.
