Politically Incorrect Lyrics – Ticket to Heaven

I get to borrow from one of my favorite alt bands today as, especially after last night’s depressing debate, I found the actual lyrics stunningly appropriate.

I give you…the politically incorrect “Ticket to Heaven,” as appropriated from the creative genius of 3 Doors Down. They own the real song. I’m just doing an homage. 🙂

TICKET TO HEAVEN

We’re walking a wire, feels like there’s a thousand ways we could fail.
They want and we buy, but our freedoms all die, greed becomes our new jail.
When everything is said and done, we won’t have one thing left.
What happened to everything I’ve ever known?

All they give us is this ticket to heaven,
But that ticket to heaven says to hand them our soul, no mistake.
Now we’re restless and we’re running from everything.
We’re running from everything.  I’m afraid it’s a little too late.

The media lies, innocents die, ain’t it a shame.
All of our dreams, all our money, it won’t mean a thing.
When all is said and done, we won’t have one cent left.
What happened to everything we’ve ever known?

All they give us is this ticket to heaven,
But that ticket to heaven says to hand them our soul, no mistake.
Now we’re restless and we’re running from everything.
We’re running from everything.  I’m afraid it’s a little too late.

It’s a little too late.

Utopia is a ticket to heaven,
But that ticket to heaven leads us all into hell til we wake.
Tear it up now or you’ll never escape the fire,
You’ll be running from everything.  If you think it’s a little too late.
All they give us is this ticket to heaven,
But it’s all an illusion, and we’ll lie in the bed that we make.
Turn around now and face all of your biggest fears.
Don’t go running from everything.  Or soon enough it will be too late.
