Take me to the church where my father and my mother
Prayed for me and my dear brother
While the angels undercover cursed our names
Children, do you believe in heaven?
Tell me, do you believe in heaven?
‘Cause there’s a place that’s filled with flames
And it’s calling out your name
So you best believe in heaven
With your blind and absent faith

And take me to the park where we played, the light went dark
And even jesus didn’t matter
’cause our souls were filled with laughter
And our laughter reached to heaven
While our sorrows went to hell

Take me to the fields where my father spent his days
Slaving for a beggar’s wage
The day is over, turn the page
There’ll be another when you wake
Waiting in your cup of coffee
And you hear our mother coughing
As you whisper to her softly
But we still hear we every strain
We still hear every strain

And take me to the house where my mother rests her bones
In that chair she rests her bones
Quietly, unsuspecting throne
Lock me out, but don’t deny her what she owns
Because i don’t believe in heaven
No, i don’t believe in heaven
There’s a place that’s filled with flames
And it’s calling out my name
’cause i don’t believe in heaven
Lock me out but don’t deny her what she owns
Lock me out but don’t deny her what she owns…

And take me to the church where my father and my mother
Pray for me and my dear brother
While the angels undercover cursed our names…

    General CommentWhere'd you get the full version?

    Did Josiah leak it?

    I know parts of it were on some mtv interview, but I didn't think the whole thing was up there...

    Awesome song, though, and it seems really honest. (Like all of Josiah's songs are, lol.)

    General CommentI agree, this song touches me.
    I think he is trying to tell everyone that as children you are innocent and so happy. As you get older, you learn and make the decisions you don't want to make.
    Everyone says that if you don't believe in Heaven, you'll go to hell.

    General Commenthis mom died of cancer. or she has termonal cancer i dont know if she has died yet. but this song makes it sound like she has. but at the end i think he is saying dont deny her going to heaven just because he doesnt believe in heaven. and he is thinking back about when he was a kid and everything was simple and he didnt think about weather there was a heaven he just knew there was because that is what he was told.
