Been done before
I walked through the gates of hell
The locks slammed shut behind me
Not even time for one last farewell
Itís not right for me to be here donít you see

Listen my friends hasnít that been done before
Oh my friends what have we been living for
Cry out my friends what are we giving for
Sing a tune my friends tho its been sung before

When the songs are sung the music played
The congregation fell to its knees and prayed
Salvation came then it went away
Hey Lord do you hear us pray

Listen my friends hasnít that been done before
Oh my friends what have we been living for
Cry out my friends what are we giving for
Sing a tune my friends tho its been sung before

Shouting voices, honking horns, the trolley wires sing
Summer sun, meadow grass, birds on the wing
From the doorway of hell these are all far away
Like the hopes that my salvation will come today

My tears will fall in sorrow for my lost goal
The fires of hell fail to warm my soul
Itís so black inside like deep space is cold
Iíve misery that was old a million years ago

Listen my friends hasnít that been done before
Oh my friends what have we been living for
Cry out my friends what are we giving for
Sing a tune my friends tho its been sung before
