Lyrics

GET BACK IN

Shoulder to the plow,
Back against the wind,
Under that black cloud
Where your hopes are pinned.

You made a vow;
You signed it in pen;
Furrowed your brow,
And then said, “Amen!”

False pride can take
You only so far –
Some things you can fake;
Others are too hard.

You can blow smoke
Up all those back sides.
Won’t think it’s a joke
When your angel hides.

I’m telling you now
What I told you then:
I don’t know how
You can get back in.

I’m telling you now
What I told you then:
I don’t know how
You can get back in.

Your life’s a trap
Of your own making.
It’s ready to snap,
Stretched to the breaking.

Bridges have been burned;
Flames have been fanned;
Friendships over turned –
All by your own hand.

You lost the key
That fits Heaven’s door.
You search frantically
On the devil’s floor.

Satan’s so helpful,
Seems almost too kind.
He’s after your soul,
Your body, and mind.

I’m telling you now
What I told you then:
I don’t know how
You can get back in.

I’m telling you now
What I told you then:
I don’t know how
You can get back in.
