04. Heaven

The Long Fall Back To Earth
by Jars of Clay


Go undercover, we drop from the screens
We’re hunters and lions, we are submarines
Under the surface, slip through the wires
Decipher the code words, disable the liars

And find, glowing on the inside
What’s growing on the inside
Heaven’s not that far
Glowing on the inside
Showing on the inside
It’s growing where we are

We shatter devices, exit the stage
We stop masquerading, to rattle the cage
We face every searchlight at places we hide
We dress up for Eden, the gates open wide

We are, we are, we are
We’re hunters and lions
We go undercover, we cover, we cover

Behind the Song:
STEVE MASON: “‘Heaven’ is one of the earlier songs we wrote for the record. It was heavily influenced by the 80’s music we all grew up with. Lyrically, I love it because we always seem to be looking for Heaven outside and around us, when eternity has been written on our hearts, and we can access it just by knowing what’s inside us and what we come alive to as we live our lives.”
