St Peter

everyone come together
making no kind of sense
and these thoughts that i cling to
theyíre going to harm my defence
iíll throw rocks at the devil with my faith wearing thin
but i wonít scream down st peter when he donít let me in

i will work like a pack horse
every hour of the day
i will drink like a preacher
oh make these spirits go away
i will sing like an angel with an ear for a sin
but i wonít scream down st peter when he donít let me in

so when iím gone will you miss me?
yes iím sure that you will
when iím far from the terror
and the lies and the kill
but there is nothing so deadly as the forces of right
or some fool with a shotgun in a house painted white

so ainít it hard now my brother
to try and do what you should
when the shameless and the wicked
they dress the same as the good
my intentions are honest though my chances are slim
so i wonít scream down st peter when he donít let me in

so everyone come together
making no kind of sense
and these words that i cling to
can only harm my defence
iíve embraced imperfection itís alright not to win
but i wonít scream down st peter when he donít let me in
i wonít scream down st peter when he donít let me in
