"When Heaven's Not Far Away" as written by and Ronald Ward....
If you slip away in darkness
Do you fall
And if God created love
Did he make it for everyone
Is there solitude in hope
Can you still dream
If the devil makes you cry
Do you change

In my own shame
When heaven's not far away
In my own shame
When heaven's not far away

Do the little things in life
Stay with your soul
Does an angel hold a sign
With directions for everyone
Is there someone there
To have them hope for me
If the stars refuse to shine
Do you change

In my own shame
When heaven's not far away
In my own shame
When heaven's not far away

Not far away
From me
Not far away
From me
Not far away

My own shame
When heaven's not far away
In my own shame
When heaven's not far away

When heaven's not far away
When heaven's not far away

    General CommentIn the most recent Metal Edge, there's an interview with Scooter, where he says that he wrote this song about how he felt when he was dying. He'd wonder every night if he was going to wake up the next day. When he explained it to his sister, this is how she felt too. He wrote this song for both of them.

    My InterpretationI know it's about how Scooter felt like he was going to die, but I reckon in my opinion it's about all about the bad things that haunt you and despite the hope and faith you hold on to, but when what haunts you the most and the hope you've held on to has been lost, you change into a darker person because you lost your belief in love and hope, and that leads you off the path to heaven.

    General Commentthe lyrics are beautiful and blunt, its obvious he wants to know what it's like dieing, we all have wondered this at some point, scooter just wrote a song for it.

    General Comment"ah-ah-ah-ah-i
    ah-ah-ah-i"

    Is it REALLY necessary to include that part? Can those really be considered lyrics?
