"The Great Forgiver" as written by and Christopher Frank/barnard Carter....
When I died I walked into the light, but what I saw I didn't like.
Well I went to heaven but I didn't go in.

They don't condemn the sinners they condemn the sin.
Heaven is full of fucking scum,
If they live like pigs they will die like one.
There will never be enough forgiveness.

St Peter I must confess, I'm more of a devil than my life suggests,
Tell god its appreciated but I was born in hell, hell is where we made it.
And if god is a great forgiver, then all the scum will be there with me.
They bury the men but not the sin, they just say a prayer.

And take them with them, Heaven is full of fucking scum,
If they live like pigs they will die like one.
There will never be enough forgiveness.

St Peter I must confess, I'm more of a devil than my life suggests,
Tell god its appreciated but I was born in hell, hell is where we made it.
St Peter I must confess, I'm more of a devil than my life suggests,
Tell god its appreciated but I was born in hell, hell is where we made it

    General Commentseems heaven and hell aren't all that different. they're both full of sinners. some were forgiven, some were not. no matter where you go, you just can't seem to rid yourself of scumbags!!!!

    General CommentWhat doesn't make sense to me, is that this implies that the forgiveness was done at random.
