"Up From Below" as written by and Alex M T Ebert Tay Strathairn....
I was only five when my dad told me I'd die
I cried as he said son, was nothing could be done
Now all the fists I've thrown, just tryin' to prove him wrong
After all the blood I spilled, just tryin' to get killed

'Cause I've already suffered I want you to know God
I'm ridin' on hell's hot flames comin' up from below

Heroin and rain blowing out my window pane
Drugs drugs drug me down, killin' light killin' sound

But now I've already suffered I want you to know God
I'm ridin' on hell's hot flames comin' up from below
Yes I've already suffered I want you to know God
I'm riding on Heaven's flames coming up from below

Far from below, how high can we go

To all the love I lost, hey just tryin' to play boss
To all those friends I hurt, I treated 'em like dirt
And all those words I spewed, nothin' sacred nothing true!
To all these ghosts I turn, I'm ready now to burn!

'Cause I've already suffered I want you to know God
I'm ridin' on hell's hot flames coming up from below
Yes I've already suffered I want you to know God
I'm ridin' on heaven's flames coming up from below

Far
From below
How high can we go.

    General CommentThese are the official lyrics:

    I was only five when my dad told me I’d die
    I cried as he said son, was nothing could be done
    No all the fists I thrown just tryin to prove him wrong
    After all the blood I spilled just tryin to get killed

    Cuz I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
    I’m ridin on hell’s hot flames comin up from below

    Herowind and rain blowing out my window pain
    Drugs drugs drug me down killin light killin sound

    But now I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
    I'm ridin on Hell’s hot flames comin up from below
    Yes I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
    I’m riding on Heaven’s flames coming up from below

    Far from below — how high can we go

    To all the love I lost — hey just tryin to play boss
    To all those friends I hurt — I treated em like dirt
    And all those words I spewed — Nothin sacred nothing true!
    To all these Ghosts I turn — I’m ready now to Burn!

    Cuz I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
    I’m ridin on hell’s hot flames coming up from below
    Yes I’ve already suffered I want you to know God
    I’m ridin of heaven’s flames coming up from below

    Far - From below - how high can we go.
