"Images of Heaven" as written by and Peter Douglas Godwin....
Nothing is sacred
So, give me your soul
Nothing is wasted
On someone like you

Somebody killed me
And tore out my heart, my love
Somebody killed me
Because of you

And there's nothing I can do
The media made you
There's nothing I can do
'cause you don't exist
you don't exist

Just images of heaven
that take me to hell
Images of heaven
Of something to sell
Images of heaven
Images of heaven

Something possessed me
An image of you, my love

Video visions
That play on my mind

Nobody blessed me
With power to reach, my love

When you're an illusion
You can still be divine

And nobody believes
In this new religion
Yeah nobody believes
'cause nobody sees
nobody sees

Images of heaven
Take me to hell
Images of heaven
of something to sell
Images of heaven
Images of heaven

Images of heaven
Images of heaven

And there's nothing I can do
The camera made you
There's nothing I can do
'Cause you don't exist
You don't exist

Just images of heaven
that take me to hell
Images of heaven
Of something to sell
Images of heaven
Images of heaven

    General CommentNot really sure what this song means. As alistrine13 said it could be about porn, but if it is there is a serious disconnect between the lyrics and the feelings invoked by the music. The music invokes a sense of longing, in me at least. Maybe I'm just a romantic but I'd like to think it was more about the longing for someone that you can never have, someone who doesn't exist, a modern day Dulcinea.

    In reality though it seems more likely to be about how modern culture creates an ideal of people, movie stars and such, as opposed to who they really are. The public only sees pictures of celebrities all dressed up (or dressed down if we get back to the porn) in magazines or playing a part in a movie. Celebrities tend to be idealized, and idolized, and what you see in these images is not likely to be what you get in real life.

    Then again, it could just be about porn. And to be fair, how different would that be to my speculation?

    General CommentIt's about porn in my opinion. Really weird song no matter what you think of it though.

    General CommentListening to the song, I think it's about porn, but it could also be about somebody's obsession with porn, or a particular image or fantasy (as the music video illustrates perfectly). Alternatively, the song could be about a guy who's in love with somebody he doesn't know, and all he has is an image. In a broader sense, I think the song is about obsession, an individual obsession that is fuelled by a broader collective obsession with celebrity body image.

    General CommentWhen you're an illusion
    You can still be divine

    is actually "One true illusion, can still be divine"

    It's about a guy who thinks he is in love with a girl he doesn't know. She may or not be famous. He is in love with the idea of her.....but he actually doesn't know her.......thus the line "you don't exist"
