Save me from salvation
 

Save me from salvation let me walk

On the wild side, don't feed me food

Of promise with nought behind the lies

God keep them at a distance all those

Who peddle fear, I don't need to go to

Heaven, I'm in heaven living here

 

Save me from salvation let me live my

Life and die, I don't want to hear from

People no nearer God than I. Go do

Your good works somewhere else I

Truly hope you're right, but right now

God has put me here and I want to

Live my life

 

Save me from salvation let me do just

As I please, I can see where I can do

Some good and it isn't on my knees. I

Can't help looking skyward into space

And far beyond, if this place isn't heaven

Then we've surely got it wrong
