Where do you go when heaven calls you
What do you do, who do you turn to
All over your knee(?) when they finally catch you
Don't stop moving they're right behind you
When theres no one left on this Earth you know who can say you care(?)
So just wake up, wake up, wake up

What is it like when hell surrounds you
How hot does it get I think I've already felt it
Is there any way out you better find one
Where do you go...(?)
Oh when theres no one here in this world of truth
Who knows firsthand so just wake up, wake up, wake up

    Lyric CorrectionSo,

    {00:47}
    Where do you go when heaven calls you
    What do you do, who do you turn to
    How old will you be when they finally catch you
    Don't stop moving, they're right behind ya
    Where there's no one left on this Earth you know
    Who can save you kid so just wake up, wake up, wake up

    What is it like when hell surrounds you
    How hot does it get I think I've already felt it
    Is there any way out you better find one
    Where do you go, down down the book said
    Oh where theres no one here in this world of truths
    Who knows firsthand so just wake up, wake up, wake up


    Sounds to me like the worries of a sniper, who killes unsuspecting people that don't know he's there, about the possiblity of an afterlife, and what it might hold in store for him. This makes a lot of sense considering the two tracks before it are both about young men having to go to war and die, as is the last track.

    General CommentI got the lyrics the best I could, the lyrics weren't anywhere else..

    I heard this song for the first time after the band was interviewed by local Austin radio station 101X.

    'how old will you be when they finally catch you'

    and

    'well there's no one left on this earth you know who will save you kid'

    General CommentI agree with bocamelie.

    Also i'm hearing
    -where do you go? down down the book says.

    This song has got to be about Atheism, and the disbelief of Christianity.
