We had a broken green Mercedes
And couldn't drive it in the rain
We had a couple bad flat tires
We pulled off the main road again

To the home where people wait
A waiting room outside the gate
Where you check in
But you don't check out

They had military secrets
Hiding out in people's veins
Killed to cure another victim
Sitting in a chair in chains

That place was real clean
A cross between Mad Magazine
And a strip club
And a house of horrors

They offered me the keys to heaven
So I would stay inside their hell
They chased me right up to the doorway
Because when I left they knew I'd tell

Don't do it brother
No one's ever called me brother before

They had a big bald night watchman
And he was dreaming in my bed
Deprived me of the sleep I needed
So they could dreams my dreams instead

You'll solve the dreams you've dreamed
Since childhood it seemed
Then he got up and went back to work

They offered me the keys to heaven
So I would stay inside their heaven
They chased me right up to the doorway
Because when I left they knew I'd tell

Don't do it brother
No one's ever cared about you before
Don't do it brother
No one's ever escaped that place before

They offered me the keys to heaven
They offered me the keys to heaven
They offered me the keys to heaven
They offered me the keys to heaven
They offered me the keys to heaven
They offered me the keys to heaven
They offered me the keys to heaven
