Iced Earth A Question Of Heaven Lyrics

Last updated: 11/17/2014 02:00:08 AM

10. A Question Of Heaven

[music\lyrics - Schaffer]

The time is close now, the end is near
My walk through the valley, trails of fear
I feel empty, my penance overdue,
I guess it's too late now to be with you
I'm extremely frightened of what will surely be
I sold myself, the death of me
I know you can't forgive me I know I'm on my own,
I've betrayed you I walk alone

What exactly is the meaning of this
Just pawns in your twisted game
Severe pain for the lie I'm livin'
For a love I never could betray

[Bridge]
Question me not say the lord unto thee
You have chosen your own faith and your own destiny
Denied of this life is what you are to be
You have chosen your own faith and your own destiny

Lord I pound my fists at you
Won't you just let me die
Would I not suffer enough
No inner peace no after life

[Repeat Bridge]

I did what I thought was right
All for the love of my life
I know it's sad but true
Something is very wrong
Condemned to suffer so long
For a love so true

The question that lies within
Is so hard to understand
It still tears at me
And in my dying breath
My heart holds no regrets
I wouldn't change a thing

My spirit begins to rise to the heavenly skies
Just to be shunned away by you
Now all I want is to die, no streets of gold in the sky
And I wash my hands of you

[Bridge]
Rising to the heaven's light
Just to plead for death
Just to be denied

Rising to the heaven's light
Just to plead for death
Just to be denied

Ooohhh, I know you can't forgive me
I know I'm on my own
I know that I've betrayed you
You know I walk alone
You know I walk alone

I walk, I walk the trail of fear
I pound my fists at you
I'm shunned away by you
I wash my hands of you

Why won't you let me die
Why won't you let me die
Why won't you let me die

Thanks to A relentless prince of pain. for submitting A Question Of Heaven Lyrics.

Absolutely Beautiful | Reviewer: Johnson | 11/16/14

When I first heard this song, I fell in absolute LOVE with it. It makes me sick to know that this band is hardly recognized. A shame for them and a shame for those who haven't heard of IE.

Amazing | Reviewer: Shorehill | 4/4/13

I love how they challenge the notion of a "forgiving Lord" in this song. He simply wishes to repent his sins committed in the name of love and attain eternal nothingness, not even Heaven, just an end to everything. God responds saying he made his choice and mocks him with hope "just to be denied" and casts him back to earth to be caught between life and death in eternal torment. It's just a masterpiece.

How Sad | Reviewer: How Sad | 2/24/11

How can the clay say too the potter," I only want to be formed and mold the way I see fit" the Lord loves you and is ready to forgive. You must come too him. I am the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the father except by me. Jesus our GOD. He loves you so much that he died for you.

This is amazing | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/4/10

One of the best metal ballads ever. Dark, full of feeling, heavy, gives me chills every time I hear

'Rising to the heaven's light
Just to plead for death
Just to be denied'

Beatiful. IE one of the biggest bands ever.

the best song ever | Reviewer: joe the reaper | 11/27/10

this song is in my opinion the best of all the dark saga music inspired in the comic of spawn the lyrics are awesome you can feel the pain like you were there in the moment of the true really a master piece

Freaking Awesome Band | Reviewer: Ian | 5/4/09

This song being off of one of my favorite Iced Earth albums, The Dark Saga, is fantastically written both lyrically and musically. Jon Shaffer is a great lyricist and musician. I got into this band because they did an awesome cover of Hallowed Be Thy Name. Iron Maiden are gods, but now Iced Earth is in their league. Rock On, IE!

Well yeah! | Reviewer: Morridin | 10/28/08

For all the metal noobs out there, this is one of the best songs by the best bands. They include a lot more songs, and more music but A Question of Heaven... Beautiful CD, and better yet, amazing song.

Please, Godness | Reviewer: Please Godness | 2/28/07

This group is so nice. I love really this song and "ghost of freedom", "the phantom opera ghost" and a lot more!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ROCK ON!!! | Reviewer: tom chase | 1/20/06

Kick Ass Song. I Cant Belive More People Havent Heard Of This Band. They Are Gods In And Out Of The Music World! Them And Iron Maiden I Mean! I Can't Help But Wonder When Another Band Is Going To Do A Tribute To This God?
