I am knocking on heavens door,
as I try to save from this acid rain thy soul.
In my mind, I’m a silent killer
but blood is what drops through the eyes of this sinner.
This acid rain fills my heart with rage,
for I don’t understand
why this world is full of hate.
As I keep knocking, I hear a prayer.
A prayer of a child
that has never known peace,
A child that no matter
how hard that he cries, nobody sees.
As I try to evade from this acid
Rain, I want to be the hero of the day,
but a silent killer by night.
Its mind boggling
to hear a sound of a cry.
A sound of thousands whispers when I
allay, that terrorize me
Now I’m like the child when he prays.
I want to keep knocking
on heavens door,
for this acid rain
won’t let me breathe no more.
I’m knocking on heavens door
for I have set my soul ready,
but I can’t close my eyes and have me a peaceful dream.
because when I close my eyes there is nothing more dreary.
why must I tremble when I put my soul at rest?
I allay with guns and roses while I’m sketching out my death.
