I had this poem title for a long time, I knew I wanted to write it, I just couldn't find the words. I bet a lot of writers can relate, that eventually, the words find you. That is how it is with most of my lyrics, I wait patiently for it to come to me.

This text is a bit all over the place, and I think that is just fine given the title. I'm sure this would mean a lot of different things to different people, and I can't even tell if it's half-decent or completely trash. So take a peek at your own risk, it might be a waste of time.

Heaven, I am in need of direction.
Never learned nothing a'bout life, it was a fool's paradise!
Wouldn't it be nice, to remain, not having to explain, ignorance for a life-time of bliss?
Kiss kiss, paradise, goodbye!
let's be the fat cats, to hell with the poor rats, nobody cares for them, no not even themselves!

Salvation for every nation, campaign the masses into obliviation
create creations, I say abominations. Slight, abjuration! erect segregations; Individualization. burn the witch, hang your man, demise that child, he's not speaking like I.

We don't exist till somebody sees us, feels us, treats us,
We don't matter till somebody understands, I demand, for the sake of the people, we treat each other equal.
So don't ask me to apologize for my father's sins, I'm here now and listening, so don't hang on to history, doomed to repeat it, like those who don't read it. You're never going to equal an equation by forcing it in the opposite direction.

Yeah!
Takes me to heaven, every time you touch me!
ohh takes me to heaven every time you touch me!
Ohh... Heaven! I'm in need of direction,

Shotgun, I'm on the rum punch, I'll be your side-kick, to every wild-strike, Babe, you're looking uptight. Kiss kiss, paradise, goodbye!
Ascension, all abominations! Rise up freaks of creation!
overthrow a crumbling nation, masses have been obliviated
into group segregations! Color, gender, sex, beyond ‘n’ between, get a reason to fight, bite of the head of the state.

You want to stay young, wild, and free, It's a fool's paradise to me!
Grow up, mature, adult to be. now the world is gonna tear you down!
Believe me, You'll see, fast tracks & the bees, honey, you're grown up when you hit the scene. There'll be low lights, you can rest your eyes, the next part you don't need to see.
Flowers never emanate potent when you're not letting them blossom,
It's tap-tap, delete history & repeat.

Yeah!
Takes me to heaven, every time you touch me!
ohh takes me to heaven everytime you touch me!
Ohh... Heaven! I'm in need of direction,

Turn off the comfort, show me some real love, show me what the world is made of.
I live in a strange walk, I communicate in a strange tongue
I dare, swear, you won't be here for more than one night, babe, I bite
Or if you like that, try 'n' bite back
such a brilliant mind, a beautiful smile accompanied by a thin waistline.
It's killing me, I can't rest, I can't de-stress. I'm in distress, barely dressed, seeking love on the weekends.
I push myself to the limit, I'm rolling, down the rabbit hole, I'm going.
Taking me far beyond the speed of reasoning, c'mon 'n' tell me why you keep on deceiving me. Yeah, this life might have been a little bit more than I bargained for, I'm out in the cold 'n' I'm hollering Y'all.
when I fall from these heights, nobody is catching me. so tonight...

Yeah!
Takes me to heaven, every time you touch me!
ohh takes me to heaven every time you touch me!
Ohh... Heaven! I'm in need of direction,

I’m one sheet away from a masterpiece,
Always is & always will be, though, this might be the piece
Which will make it through, (through) history.

-No, you’re one sheet away from the loony bin,
stop yourself in dear time or you’ll pay the price,
You will lose your footing, you will lose your life-

No! I’m merely one sheet away from a masterpiece, you will see.

-No! you’ll lose your mind, you’ll lose your life, ‘n’ you’ll pay the price-

Yeah!
Takes me to heaven, every time you touch me!
ohh takes me to heaven everytime you touch me!
so, Let the day in, let it come with all of its mistress & all its fun!
Oh! let the day in, let it come… All of its fortune & all its con!...
Yeah! Let the day in! Let it come! Wondering, wander on...
