"Heaven Hammer" as written by John Robert King, Michael S. Simpson and Beck David Hansen....
I prayed heaven today
Would bring its hammer down on me
And pound you out of my head
I can't think with you in it

I'd drag all that I owned
Down the dirt road to find you
And my shoes, worn-out and used
They can't take me much farther
Ohhh

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there's something missing

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there's something missing

She rides in a car
Like a queen on a card
And the guns of her mind
Aim a line straight at mine
To a heart that is broke
Tried to feel but got choked
In the smoke of a desert
A beach with no treasure
A night that seems blue
Feed the aching in you
And the background birds
Take a flight from the earth
A bonfire burns
And the night current turns
On a lifeboat floating
Down a river of sleep
Can't see her hollow eyes
Walking along with my boots full of rocks
Can't believe these tears of mine
I give 'em to you to keep away in a box
I give 'em to you to keep away in a box
I give 'em to you to keep away in a box
I give 'em to you to keep away in a box

Something always takes the place of missing pieces
You can take and put together even though
You know there's something missing

Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something
Something always missing
Always someone missing something

    My OpinionHow is it that nobody has commented on this song yet? I have a remix version of this from Guerolito and it's great.

    General CommentTo me this is all about a "War in Heaven" that God would say that He would bring a mighty hammer down on the just angel (compared to Himself) betrayer "demons".

    This God guy (through Beck with His Holy Spirit) gives him His Own sort of nihilist attitude about His betrayers.

    It is kind of about His transferred nihilism if He couldn't use His other angels to defeat this "War in Heaven".
