Setting Fire to Heaven

Let’s set fire to heaven.

No polite knocking on pearly gates.

Peter’s drawing the ace of spades tonight.

You won’t keep me out of paradise.

Bring down all their pedestals,

Don’t give them anything to climb.

Don’t give them a chance to look down on you.

We don’t have to stay here.

Everything is dark here.

Want to find out what it’s like,

To feel that glorious light?

I bet you’d really like to know.

We’ve been suffering down here for so long,

That we forgot that we had hearts.

We used to smile.

Everything was once beautiful and innocent.

Let’s set fire to heaven.

Let’s make it ours.

Let’s make it shine ablaze like they never could.

And once it’s gone,

It’s gone forever.

They don’t get to hold it over our heads,

never again.

Then they get to share the dark,

With their forgotten brothers and sisters.

Let’s set fire to heaven.

Come, take my hand, beautiful.

Let’s dance on the ashes of angel wings.

Let’s make love on His throne,

and roll around on all those fluffy, white clouds.

They’ve kept me locked out for too long.

I’m going to set fire to your heaven,

and hang you by your halos.

Today is the last day,

until night is eternal.

Let’s show them they can’t control us.

Dance in their light,

until we stain their alabaster floors,

with the blood of our soles,

with the blood of our souls.

We came here to live life.

If you’ve never been alive before,

tonight is the night.

There’s a riot in heaven,

and no one will stop us.

We won’t let them again.

It’s been too long,

since we felt this kind of warmth.

Let’s right every wrong,

and wrong every right.

Let’s set fire to heaven,

and really be free for the first time.

It will be our first sunrise,

and their last sunset.

When we’re setting fire to heaven,

don’t forget to show mercy,

to those who couldn’t be here.

Some of us can’t set fire to heaven.

Some of us are locked away,

in an even darker Hell.

Steal the clean water,

from their pristine fountains.

Quench the thirst,

of those parched sinners.

When you set fire to heaven,

make it burn bright.

Let it shine in the darkest corner.

Let there not be one shadow,

on this, the most glorious of nights.

Remember what it’s like to smile.

Remember what it’s like to feel good.

Remember the night we set fire to heaven.
