"Heaven 'N Hell" as written by and Alexander/cantrell Mitchell....
I want to make myself complete
I want to hold it in my arms
I want this blow to scar your eyes
I want this pain to go away
I want to shake this thinking here
I wish there was a heaven

Born to live, live to die
Yeah, we're livin'
Give to try, try to give
Like this is heaven...and hell

You want to write my name in blood
You want to carve it in my arm
You want to make yourself a dream
You want this world under your thumb
You want to make me shout and scream
We know there ain't no heaven

Born to live, live to die
Yeah, we're livin'
Give to try, try to give
Like this is heaven
Born to live, live to die
Yeah, we're livin'
Give to try, try to give
Like this is heaven...and hell

And we all know it well...

Born to live, live to die
Yeah, we're livin'
Give to try, try to give
Like this is heaven
Born to live, live to die
Yeah, we're livin'
Give to try, try to give
Like this is heaven...and hell

    General CommentThis song is often misattributed to Alice in Chains. In fact, I first downloaded it as an AiC song and was surprised that I never saw it on any AiC record. It wasn't until very recently that I found out it was a Circus of Power song. REALLY easy to confuse with AiC's style. I think Jerry Cantrell did contribute to it though.

    I don't know the exact meaning, sorry.
