People are looking but they don't know what to do
It's the time of the season for the people like you
Come back tomorrow, show the scars on your face
It's a clue to the answer we all chase
Three, five and seven lift the heaviest load
Reach the top of the heaven that's fallen below
Devil may care but you wish for the best
Can't you see there's an answer that lies there
Come all you sinners and keep with the time
Can we see all the faces that have fallen behind
Don't make the reason it's a secret for you
There's a clue to the answer we all know
There's no clue to the answer we all know
People are looking but they don't know what to do
It's the time of the season for the people like you
Come back tomorrow, show the scars on your face
It's a clue to the answer we all chase
It's a clue to the answer we all chase

    A song for those who thought they would end up in heaven but ended up "elsewhere" and are now seeking repentance.

    In 1970s it was cool to be mysterious, talk a little about heaven and hell, the Devil, sin and salvation, just like you had some special inside knowledge. Prog-rockers like Atomic Rooster just put in their songs for added effect. I knew them well and rehearsed with them with my band, and saw them live in small venues.

    I think it is about the circle of satan. People search for salvation but they only found temporary salvation from the evil. But it's all just my guess
