PEARLY GATES

PEARLY GATES

SEE
THE SUN
UPON YOUR BACK?
SOMEONE
SOMEWHERE
WANTS TO STEAL IT

PRAY EACH NIGHT YOU'LL CATCH THE THIEF
BUT WHILE YOU SLEEP
HE COMES AND TAKES IT

DOES THAT MAKE YOU THINK
LITTLE GIRL?
DOESN'T IT JUST
LITTLE BOY?

THERE'LL BE NO STAMPEDE
ON THE PEARLY GATES
I'LL SAY "AFTER YOU"
YOU'LL SAY YOU DON'T MIND THE WAIT
THERE'LL BE NO STAMPEDE
ON THOSE IMPOSING DOORS

NAKED AND AFRAID
COWERING
WE CRAWL ON ALL FOURS...

SEE
THE SMILE
ON HER YOUNG FACE?
WATCH LIFE CASUALLY
ERASE IT
NOW I KNOW
SHE'S ALL GROWN UP
SHE WEARS A LOOK
I CAN'T
QUITE PLACE YET

WHAT MAKES YOU CRY, LITTLE GIRL?
MAYBE IM SCARED, LITTLE BOY

THERE'LL BE NO STAMPEDE
ON THE PEARLY GATES
I'LL SAY "AFTER YOU"
YOU'LL SAY
"I DON'T MIND THE WAIT...."
THERE'LL BE NO STAMPEDE
ON THOSE IMPOSING DOORS
NAKED AND AFRAID
COWERING,
WE CRAWL ON ALL FOURS....
