"Heaven's Gate" as written by Andrew Cairns, Michael Robert Mckeegan, Graham Hopkins and Martin Mccarrick....
Oh shit, here comes morning
Another ugly bang that I dreaded coming
Go back to sleep, let the curtains protect me
Keep them closed so the light won't get me

Stuck inside, afraid of big spaces
Too much noise and too many faces
All mail left unanswered
Kicking down my door like a final reminder

I've been waiting on it coming
Waiting so long
I wanna be there when it all goes off
And everything I need is in the verification of your genius

OK, but I'm not ready
To get up and go 'cause I feel so guilty
Is anybody there? The door's still ringing
It's not for me, just another religion

Someone selling something
I'd let you in but the house is so empty
Feed me any salvation
I'm paying through the nose for my inspiration

I've been waiting on it coming
Waiting so long
I wanna be there when it all goes off
And everything I need is in the verification of your genius

Wish I could sleep forever
It's all catching up and I surrender
Clock keeps chipping at my insistence
Final reminder, always there in the distance

I've been waiting on it coming
Waiting so long
I wanna be there when it all goes off
And everything I need is in the verification of your genius

    General CommentIt's not about the cult, it's about somebody needing something to help them escape from their life. Apparantly, after it was written, there then came the story about the cult, which seemed to match up to how the person in the song felt, so the title was given to it.
