there is love
there is happiness
but not here, not here
there is peace
there is righteousness
just wait, just wait
if you are in heaven i don’t want in
i’m not going to hell i haven’t sinned
oh, (if) i’m going to hell…hell, i can’t win
if you are in heaven i don’t want in…
(and) there is you, there isn’t pain
just go and face the end,
cause there is truth
forgiveness only if you do something evil
is this evil?
if you are in heaven i don’t want in
i’m not going to hell i haven’t sinned
oh, (if) I’m going to hell…hell, i can’t win
if you are in heaven i don’t want in…
if you are in heaven i don’t want in
i’m not going to hell i haven’t sinned
oh, (if) i’m going to hell…hell, i can’t win
if you are in heaven i don’t want in…
if you are in heaven i don’t want in
i’m not going to hell i haven’t sinned
oh, (if) i’m going to hell…hell, i can’t win
if you are in heaven I don’t want in…

    General CommentDon't you just love this song? I can't believe no one else has commented on this song yet, it would seem like a very controversial song... o well. I love it Man I totally feel this way about people sometimes, and about religion as well. Jon is amazing. VAST deserves more acknowledgment.

    General CommentOK, this needs to be corrected...
    oh, if I’m going to hell… Damn, i can’t win
    if you are in heaven i don’t want in…
    there is you, there isn’t pain
    just go and face the end,
    cause there is true forgiveness only if you do something evil

    Basically, he's expressing his conflict between good and evil... He doesn't do EXACTLY what The Bible tells him... In fact, he doesn't care much for the people who do. He's pretty much saying "If I have to be like you to get into Heaven, and if there are more people like you IN heaven, I want nothing to do with it... However, I shouldn't be damned, because I've done nothing 'wrong'."Forgive the waste of space, but a friend of mine told me a story that REALLY made me think of this song... In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to find out that Jon Crosby based this song on the main character... The story goes:One Sunday morning, a preacher said to his audience "Those of you who have sinned, please rise!". Everyone in the audience rose to their feet, except one man. The preacher cleared his throat, and repeated himself more loudly. "Those of you who have sinned, PLEASE stand up!". The man remained seated. The preacher glared at the man, and bellowed "Those of you who have sinned, STAND UP NOW!". The man responded "I am not a sinner, I am a man.".I've always liked that story...RIP, Daiv...
