lyrics

Verse:
Baby I’m an angle
Been born as a man
Even though I act like I’m black or white
Most nights I am both rain and shine
Living in the distance between the nightmares and the daydreams
That’s the way we were before we were the nightmares and the daydreams
That’s the way we were before we got thrown to the street
Won the right to think though ‘ for ourselves
No it’s not perfection but it’s peace
from a silhouette too afraid of his disease
to do a damn thing about it
so he had to s-scream about it on top of the roof
Listened for existence and took it as the proof
But hey Mr. wait though you still need a brush big enough to paint you a saint
before it gets too late
it’s a fool’s fate to go to hell now
Poor man die ‘ Rich man gon’ die too
Get a cash cow in the sky and life is a lullaby

Chorus:
When I get back from heaven
Everything’s gonna be right where I left it

Verse:
Like the new paper sack that I stashed on the moon
One skin says me the other skin says you
Twins from the same old mother
So feed that tale to the snake man
Under the lake the mermaids aren’t quite that pretty
Really is a shame the ocean’s so far away
It’s hard to say how far exactly
I haven’t been that far before
I just died my water fake blue
Made me feel so wonderful
I just died my water fake blue
Made me feel so wonderful

Chorus:
When I get back from heaven
Everything’s gonna be right where I left it
When I get back from heaven
Everything’s gonna be super cool
When I get back from heaven
I’m gonna take a nap out by my pool
So when I get back from heaven/
That water better be all kinds of blue/
