Hole Through Heaven

from by Smith & Jones

lyrics

Everything is sweet when you’ve got a hand to hold
Everything is right at the come in from the cold
Well that ancient-earth daddy's got his fire up bright
Still the shadows are looming before his red-stained eyes

He stopped believing in heaven on the day she died
When he took a shot of hell in the waiting room light
When all the nurses know your name you know it’s been too long
Of needles and the humming of a hospital song

He’s been holding on to love
For nothing
Trynna find some truth
In the lies he told himself
But now he knows
The only truth left to believe in
Are the stars
In the darkness

Everybody wants a piece of immortality
We're all just searching for meaning in life’s finality
Now he knows there aint no meaning and there aint no cause
Just a little headstone upon the manicured lawns

And now he’s staring right up at the painted sky
Talking to god and getting no reply
Well if he was a praying man, lord he’d pray so good
He’d pray a hole through heaven if he only could
He’d pray a hole through heaven if he only could

He’s been holding on to love
For nothing
Trynna find some truth
In the lies he told himself
But now he knows
The only truth left to believe in
Are the stars
In the darkness
