When the sun's gone
Then they cry, laughing as they die
They can't look into your eyes
Moonlight makes it all so clear
Peirces the skin without tears
The writing on the wall's been smeared

Tragedy, comedy
Bite the hand that set 'em free
Same old song with a different beat
Comedy, tragedy

Forget about heaven
And the book of fear
Forget about heaven
We're staying here

Getting so high but staying so low
Stumbling, look out below
Halfway's too far to go

Forget about heaven
And the book of fear
Forget about heaven
We're staying here

Beliefs, disaster
Domination by persuasion
Nightmare is after
Your ruined faith beckons grace

Hold their heads down
When kneeling to pray
Heaven lies the other way
Cheated angels turned away
Forget about heaven
And the book of fear
Forget about heaven
We're staying here

Forget about heaven
Forget about heaven
Forget about heaven

    Not sure if the booklet presents these as the correct lyrics, but if one listens to the CD, it actually goes like this:

    When the sun's gone,
    and they cry laughing as they die
    They will look into your eyes

    General CommentI agree Omni.
    As far as the meaning goes, I think the basic message is that there might be an afterlife/creator but religion has got it all wrong.
