"Edge Of Heaven" as written by and Ian Eric/schmitt Kirkpatrick....
I can't hold back
My hands won't let me
It's the touch of your skin
Is it lust or envy?
Is it lust or envy?

I can't hold back
My pride won't let me
I'm seeing red
This is all too deadly
This is all too deadly

Father one more taste
I just can't help it
Father I need it all
Hanging from the edge of Heaven
All seven
All seven
Father I need it all
Hanging from the edge of Heaven
Hanging from the edge of Heaven

I can't get up
Motivation left me
I've let it burn
Only embers left in me
Only embers left in me

My old friend how long it's been
My original sin we meet again
You taught me to live like this
My original sin we meet again

Father one more taste
I just can't help it
Father I need it all
Hanging from the edge of Heaven
All seven
All seven
Father I need it all
Hanging from the edge of Heaven

You taught me for this
I'll take my place
My mind still hates you
With my seven sins
We'll play it again
Baby I'll win again

Father one more taste
I just can't help it
Father I need it all
Hanging from the edge of Heaven
All seven
All seven
Father I need it all
Hanging from the edge of Heaven

    General CommentActual lyrics:

    I can't hold back,
    My hands won't let me.
    It's the touch of your skin,
    Is it lust or envy?
    Is it lust or envy?

    I can't hold back,
    My pride won't let me.
    I'm seeing red,
    This is all too deadly.
    (This is all too deadly)

    Fallout!
    One more taste
    (One last time)
    I just can't help it
    Fallout!
    I need it all
    Hangin' from the edge of Heaven
    All 7
    All 7
    Fallout!
    I need it all
    Hangin' from the edge of Heaven
    (Hangin' from the edge of Heaven)

    I can't get up,
    Motivation left me.
    I let it burn,
    Only embers left in me.
    Only embers left in me.

    My old friend, how long it's been,
    My original sin we meet again.
    You taught me to live like this,
    My original sin we meet again.

    Fallout!
    One more taste
    (One last time)
    I just can't help it
    Fallout!
    I need it all
    Hangin' from the edge of Heaven
    All 7
    All 7
    Fallout!
    I need it all
    Hangin' from the edge of Heaven

    You taught, you taught me this.
    I'll take me place,
    Amongst the angels.
    With my seven sins,
    I'll reign again, baby I'll reign again.

    Fallout!
    One more taste
    (One more time)
    I just can't help it
    Fallout!
    I need it all
    Hangin' from the edge of Heaven
    All 7
    All 7
    Fallout!
    I need it all
    Hangin' from the edge of Heaven

    General CommentIt actually has nothing specifically to do with alcohol. It's about the 7 Deadly Sins. He mentions lust, envy. He claims "this is too deadly". He also says "with my seven sins". Basically, he's on the edge of heaven but he's not ready to give up "all seven" of the sins because he still needs them, he can't help it.

    General CommentI think the song is about wanting to be a good person "hanging from the edge of heaven," but giving into the bad parts of yourself, the parts that commit the seven deadly sins. The 7 sins are Pride, Envy, Lust, Sloth, Gluttony, Anger and Greed. In the song, he literally sings "my seven sins." Pride is excessive belief in one's own abilities. It has been called the sin from which all others arise. In the song he says, "My pride won't let me." He also says, "I'll take my place among the angels" and "I'll reign again," which are references to pride. Envy is the desire for others' traits, status, abilities, or situation. Lust is an inordinate craving for the pleasures of the body. Some of the songs lyrics, "Is it lust or envy?" Also, "One more taste, one more touch" is a reference to lust. Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work. Lyrics that reference sloth are, "I can't get up. Motivation left me." Gluttony is an inordinate desire to consume more than that which one requires. The lyrics "I need it all" reference gluttony pretty well. Anger is manifested in the individual who spurns love and opts instead for fury. "I'm seeing red," is often a reference to anger. He also says, "I've let it burn, only embers left in me" which could be another reference to anger. Greed is the desire for material wealth or gain, ignoring the realm of the spiritual. Many of the lyrics can be related to greed, such as "I can't hold back" and "I just can't help it."

    Lyric CorrectionLove this song, great beat/lyrics. It, Wooly, Lauren's Song, and Last Night are my top songs from this cd.

    Few corrections:

    First verse:
    I think it's
    "Is it lust or envy?"

    and later:
    Only embers left in me

    General CommentI believe this song is talking about drinking, or a past addiction to alcohol. Jack Daniel's to be exact. Old No 7 Brand. I believe this is why the word 7 (seven) is used. "One more taste" and "my old friend" and "my original sin" are all dead giveaways. Hanging from the edge of heaven may mean that a relapse is coming (to alcohol addiction). Just my take. Great song though.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about having sex with someone who you used to be with. I don't know, I could be wrong, but that's what I get from this song.
