lyrics

I woke up at the Gates of Hell
And saw to my surprise
The face of everyone I’d ever known
As I thought to look for yours
The flames began to rise
Had you gone to paradise alone?

And the one thing I can do for
All eternity
Is wonder if you ever looked for me

The damned are walking side by side
An infinite parade
In honor of the things that brought us here
The vanities and jealousies
And empty masquerades
The better angels fallen out of fear

And the one thing I can do for
All eternity
Is wonder if you ever think of me
Even as I stand upon
The blackened burning stone
Knowing that the fault was mine alone

There’s nothing less poetic than
A man whose only sin
Is longing for a thing he's never earned
But the Devil can identify
And he does it with a grin
I guess we’ve passed the point of no return

And the one thing I can do for
All eternity
Is wonder if you ever think of me
Even as I stand upon
The blackened burning stone
Knowing that the fault was mine alone
