The Lyrics

In the vast outer reaches
Deep space shrouds its glare
The stars of Orion
Lining up with it there
Far beyond all our limits
It shines so glimmering bright
Its place is holy and its light is Him
You have to search for this sight

We can't look past the light years
Onto this citadel
Brightly gleaming with its wealth
Where is it hidden and where is it held?
When we open our bibles
And we read every page
We can rocket through its pearly doors
Into the true space age

Welcome to The Kingdom God has for ya
It's a holy place (It's a holy place)
It's the only place
Many mansions in The Kingdom let Him show ya
Everytime you pray (everytime you pray)
You have booked your stay

This world is desperately wicked
We got a planet hooked on meds
We've got a lot of tryin' scientist
Who scratch their heads
How they search in the heavens
Ain't found it yet
Fat chance that they'll ever
No chance you can bet

Once I contacted NASA
They gave me a date
They said'We have scoured all of heaven here since 1958'
And still that city is shining in ou-ter space
Waiting for all the brethren of the light
Who will see His face

They will see The Kingdom God has for ya
It has pearly gates (It has pearly gates)
And it surley waits
Many presume that The Kingdom is bolognya
You can well surmise ( you can well surmise)
With your faith filled eyes

Pure gold paves the city
The streets are done up nice
You know we all can be denizens there
In the name of Christ
And in the NASA framework
They'd rather you not preach
They go on with their busy lives
But they must someway be reached

One thing to be sure of...
When you're living for the Lord
You want to share the message
With all those that can be implored
The close of probation
Is a reason to believe
You can be with Him in paradise
Or go to hell and GRIEVE!

Great job, Lionel. Very creative. I like your take on all things spiritual. The truth, but tongue-in-cheek. If you took just the descriptions of Heaven alone, you could probably make up a whole new song. Very cool. Keep it up. And keep on paro-deachinโ€™!

Excellent use of rhyme and vocabulary. A stark contrast to the grim imagery of the original song which evokes a hellish landscape.
