Heaven In The Heart

Heaven In The Heart

 

Billy doesn’t know what’s going on / They took away his job and they took away his home/And they took away the part of him that made him run/ He had heaven in his heart and now he’s got the heart of stone

 

Annie she’s been gone for quite some time/Living on the pills and the cheap red wine/ Waiting for a soldier boy who don’t come home/ She had heaven in her heart and now she’s got the heart of stone

 

Little Jimmy prayed to the Lord for help/The Lord wasn’t listening –had to help himself/And the blade he used was six inches long/ He had heaven in his heart and now he’s got the heart of stone

 

He had heaven/He had heaven/ He had heaven in his heart

 

The Jihadi kid with the shaven head/”Praise be to Allah there’ll be fifty dead when I walk into that school over there/With this thing strapped on”/ He had heaven in his heart and now he’s got the heart of stone

 

The Lords of the Universe they say/Gonna make the poor one’s pay and pay/ We’ll take them down to hell real soon- it won’t take long/They had heaven in their hearts and now they got the hearts of stone

 

Alexandra rose in the middle of the night/ She walked out to the ocean in the clear moonlight/And she wrote upon the water what was in her soul/ She had heaven in her heart –said take away these hearts of stone
