Heaven, is this heaven where we are?
Stumble, stagger, fall and drag themselves along the streets of heaven.
Where is the blessed table to feed all who hunger on earth,
See them walking, if you dare, if you call that walking.

and where are the wings that should grow from your shoulder blades?
These are sobering sights I've seen in the City of Angels

A host of the dearly to meet me with Hosannas sung at the door,
have all been one rude awakening that was dues to me in heaven.
