Tonight my heart is taking flight
so are my feet
I'm gonna fly up to the sun
i made some wings
and when the flames consume them
and i fall back to the earth
the ground will open up and swallow me whole
and it's there I'll meet my maker
yeah the devil he will welcome me home
cus god didn't make the humans
he couldn't make something so sour
god made the mountains and the animals and the flowers
then the devil took the pieces
he crafted you and me
yeah the devil took the pieces
and he twisted into human things
and all we know of heavens just an ancient memory
form the time when we were feathered we were bird
and we had teeth
heavens not a place
not a place for you and me
heavens for the creatures that we kill
and for the creatures that we eat
and god is a beast
god is a beast
god is a beast
god is a beast
and i know these wings are faulty
and i will not get off the ground
that's why I'm throwing them off my shoulders
and I'm walking towards the edge of town
you may try to stop me
and say do not let this be my ruin
but I'm sorry sister
your too late
the damage has been done
and now I'm going to the jungle
to find some clarity
yeah I'm going to the jungle to live amongst the beast
yeah I'm going to the jungle and i may never come home
because home is where the heart is
and mines long gone
