Thorned Crown

from by Ro Halfhide



My life now passes by me in second gear
Never took a chance now that's a shame
Always lived in fear, never get out of here
Gonna take the high road just the same
Just the same

Gonna take the highway towards heaven
This hell below has got no place for me
When the gates are shut, won't get stuck in the mud
Gonna raise some Cain for all the folks to see
Folks to see

And when Saint Peter steps down from his pedestal
And walks up to the gate to speak to me
I'll look into his eyes, make him realize
How this world is dipped in misery

- what's he gonna say about that now huh?! -

He said:
Son the only light I see is in your eyes
And you should know by now that I am you
If you close your eyes, then you'll realize
There's nothing more that I can do
I can do

I must have stood there long, it was getting dark
Saint Peter offered me to come inside
I looked into his eyes, then I realized
Heaven is just another place to hide
Place to hide

So the story ends, still in second gear
Like Adam and Eve I fled these gates once more
Took the low road down, headed back in town
Gonna live my life the way I did before
But with a thorned crown
With a thorned crown
