The situations progressed
We built this city on rock and roll
It's my only regret
But bad is never good till there's worse

Scatter the ash of our homes
At the advisor's request
They suggest that we blame someone else

And we all say nothing more
Lay down your hands over your eyes
Our hearts don't beat like before
Bathing in the river of half hearted souls

Take me away from everything

We gathered wings of an angel
And we flew up to the gates to be with God
But when we got to the sun
We lost our wings up to the flames
And sold our souls to the devil
The red devil

    General CommentThis is a song about half-hearted Christianity. They talk about how the hearts don’t beat (for God) like before and they bathe in the river of half-hearted souls. Then they are ready to go to heaven, but are rejected because they were not actual Christians, but half Christians, lazy Christians. And God hates laziness. So these people were not allowed eternal life.
