MeaningEdit

Stephen 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."[1]

Lyrics[2]Edit

Lyrics


Verse 1:

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


Chorus:

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


Verse 2:

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


Chorus:

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

We are, we are, we are

We’re hunters and lions

We go undercover, we cover, we cover


Heaven’s not that far

It's glowing on the inside

Showing on the inside

Growing where we are

glowing on the inside

It's glowing on the inside

We are, we are, we are


We go undercover

We are submarines

We’re hunters and lions
