"Heaven" as written by Larry Darnell Griffin and Stacy Epps....
Will you fight for the cause
Can you teach the savage mind, their ways are wrong
Help them see, what they want and what they need
And if we have to twist their arms
They know not what they do is wrong
And if you said I would go to heaven
Now maybe I'll try

And if you said I would go to heaven
Now maybe I'll, maybe I'll, maybe I'll try
Heretics and hypocrites

Wear the same face through the years
Of telling lies and laying blame
Damn the fire to feed the flame
I'll dance I'll sing

I'll try to fade their images planted in your head
And if you said I would go to heaven
Now maybe I'll try
And if you said I would go to heaven
Now maybe I'll try
Ivy is just a dog

With a heart that's noble as the greatest man who ever lived
Won't you please help her learn
That if we have to twist her arms
She knows not what she does is wrong

And if you said I would go to heaven
Now maybe I'll try
And if you said I would go to heaven
Now maybe I'll try
And if you said I would go to heaven
Now maybe I'll try

And if you said I would be a rich man
Now maybe I'll, maybe I'll, maybe I'll try
Maybe I'll try
Maybe I'll try
Maybe I'll try

    General CommentI think this song is so true, about how oftentimes religious people end up making the world worse instead of better. They try so hard to save people that they end up hurting them, and it doesn't even really occur to them that all they have to do is let them know they'll go to heaven.

    General Comment"this is a song about how, um, certain things can start off good and be twisted in the end"

    It is what he says in the beginning of the acoustic version I have.

    Song MeaningYes, he was referring to religion. Religion started out with all good intentions. To show humans the right ways and to steer them off the wrong ones. In the end, it has been twisted into a human tool, to manipulate people into doing things. War, politics, the justification of cruelty to fellow man.
