lyrics

if heaven is a place where no one ever wakes up
to the rising of the sun for there's nothing left to do,
if I'm headed for some promised land where my purpose is to rest
don't sign me up; don't sign me up

and if heaven is a place where some make it and some are left out
by the choices that were made when we didn't understand,
if there's no one left to fight for, there's nothing left to learn,
don't sign me up; don't sign me up

now get up and open up your eyes,
and don't stand by; don't wait for your reward,
don't stand by; don't wait for your reward

if heaven is a place where the clouds are all beneath us
for the softening of our steps, the sky is always blue,
if there's not a mountain left to climb or dancing in the rain,
don't sign me up; don't sign me up

now get up and open up your eyes,
and don't stand by; don't wait for your reward,
don't stand by; don't wait for your reward

'cause there's a morning on the rise
with a dark and scattered mind
and there's a chance to be alive

if heaven is a place, if today is just a memory,
if redemption has to wait, if we are not the world,
if time can drive a wedge between myself and God,
don't sign me up; don't sign me up
