Do you know
Do you know
Do you know where you will go

If a DC-10 ever fell on your head and you're
Laying in the ground all messy and dead
Or a Mack truck run over you
Or you suddenly die in your Sunday pew

Do you know where you're gonna go

It can happen any day
It can happen anywhere
It can happen while you're nappin' in your easy chair
It can happen at home
It can happen at school
It can happen while you're scattin' like a scattin' fool
Do you know where you're gonna go

Do you know where you're gonna go
Do you know where you're gonna go
Do you know where you're gonna go
Straight to Heaven
Or down the hole?

A 747 fell out of Heaven
Crashed through the roof of a 7-11
You're working on a slurpee
Things get hazy
Reach for a twinkie now you're pushing up daisies?
Do you know where you're gonna go

    General CommentI used to listen to this in junior high when I was only allowed to listen to “Christian Music.”

    Anyway, I now realize this song implies a false dichotomy: Heaven or Hell, and Christians know they are going to Heaven. But the reality is there are many different afterlives proposed by various people and religions, and even Christians disagree about who goes where. I believe Stephen Fry said, “Anyone who tells me where I am going when I die is either a liar or a fool, because THEY DO NOT KNOW.”

    General CommentShows many ways in which you could suddenly die and never see it coming and asks the simple question, do you know where you're going to go?

    General Commentjacob, I'll let you in on a little secret. Although it may not seem this way to you, AA sweetens everything. Every topic is so saturated with words that only Christians can understand that it becomes unpopular even for those Christians. Plus, AA hardly ever touches "real" topics. All this talk of death and living for Christ is great, but why not sing songs about things that'll help people? You want a prime example of this?? Check out "Slow and Steady Wins the Race" or "Rapture" by Pedro the Lion. Now those are lyrics that don't sweeten anything, just be brutally honest.

    General CommentDon't be ridiculous. Of course I know where I'm going. But don't these lyrics sound pointed at secular people asking do they know where they'll go? Yet I can't think of one secular person who, after hearing this song, decides to be a christian. Rather than this song sounding caring, it comes off as self-righteous instead.

    General Commentexactly, Grim713. i stopped listening to a lot of "contemporary christian" music's lyrically lame. now see, there are quite a few bands out there sticking up for their beliefs AND playing great music AND not being pushy. a great example is the new Solid State band, Dead Poetic. they are great, and have such an awesome ministry. more power to them. and Pedro The Lion rocks too... :)

    General CommentOkay, I'll agree with you. But only a little bit. AA has some good lyrics. But some are completely terrible. Woo hoo, do you know where YOU are gonna go? Wow, how extremely self-righteous. I dunno, I get tired of listening to bands that pretend that they are awesome. It bores me

    General Commenti have to admit that this is one of my least favorite AA songs, however i do like the message. i agree with most of the comments on sugar-coated christian music, but sometimes i find you need something that is simply good for you and uplifting. other christian-based bands however though probably get more of my attention since they look into deeper subjects, and offer christian views into them. bands such as thousand foot krutch, the juliana theory, relient k, sixpence none the richer, and slick shoes offer great music with a non-worldly view on worldly subjects. they talk about everything from sex to abortion to death in a way that everyone understands without promoting worldly views... personally it works great for me. i love music and it satisfies my desire for some misery or loudness sometimes, without compromising my beliefs.
