Can't find my way back to heaven
Lyrics
Can't find my way back to heaven
Jonestown, Guyana 18 November 1978
© 2007 Bruce Mills (ASCAP)

Can't find my way / can't find my way / can't find my way / can't find my way
I can't find my way back to Heaven no more
The Kingdom is deserted - they locked up all the doors
Am I the only one - the only one that's left behind?

All of God's children were waiting in line
Desperate believers - to drink the father's wine
Am I the only one - the only one that's left behind?

No one heard the sound
When the trees of life fell down
Angels crying in the clouds -
When the sun went down
Over holy ground

On the eve of communion - I had to turn away
I could not drink my portion - when the cup was passed my way
The father said to me - You'll be the only one -
You'll be the only one / that's left behind

Nine hundred children - gathered in the night
For the father said he'd take them to the everlasting light
They were the lonely ones - the lonely ones / he could not leave behind

The father gave commandments
I could not understand
He said that self-destruction
Would heal the souls of man
That death was our deliverance
In an everlasting land
That dying cures the soul -
I could not / I could not / understand

Holy, holy ground
Lonely, lonely sound
Angels falling down
Lonely, lonely sound

Can't find my way / can't find my way / can't find my way / can't find my way
I can't find my way back to Heaven no more
I did not know that my salvation - would also be my crime
So, I'm the only one - the only one that's left behind
So, I'm the only one - the only one that's left behind

Can't find my way / can't find my way / can't find my way
