Oh
To look up through the holes
In the floor of heaven
In the evening sky
Light
Slipping through the holes
In the floor of heaven
So that I
Could see the light of heaven

Oh, but I know
I know they're only stars
Dots of burning matter
So far away
Still, someone had to make the stars
And it doesn't matter
Anyway
He lives even after
They fade away

    General CommentThe piano on this makes me think, "Imagine there's a Heaven, It's easy if you try."

    Originally, this was the beginning of a seven minute "Progressive Rock" song with separate movements and had the main title, "Holes in the Floor of Heaven." I wrote it about four years before recording the album and by that time I was coming out of my Prog-Rock phase so I shortned this one and wrote something new to be the title-song.

    Lyrics are self-explanatory. As I kid, looking up on a clear night, the flickering of the stars made it look like the blackness of space was a giant ceiling with heaven above, and you could tell God and the angels were up there walking around.
