They say that no man is an island
And good things come to those who wait
But the things I hear are there
Just to remind me
Every dog will have his day

The spirits they intoxicate me
I watched them infiltrate my soul
They try to say it's too late for me
Tell my guns Im coming home

I swear Im gonna live forever
Tell my maker he can wait
Im riding somewhere south of heaven
Heading back to santa fe
Its judgment day in santa fe

Once I was promised absolution
There's only one solution for my sins
You gotta face your ghosts and know
With no illusions
That only one of you is going home again

And I blame this world for making
A good man evil
Its this world that can drive a
Good man mad
And it's this world that turns a killer
Into a hero
Well I blame this world for making
A good man bad

Now I aint getting into heaven
If the devil has his way
I swear Im gonna live forever
Heading back to santa fe
Got debts to pay in santa fe
Its judgment day in santa fe

Solo

So I save a prayer
When I need it most
To the father, son
And the holy ghost
And I'll sign it from a sinner
With no name

When I meet my maker
Will he close the book
On the hearts I broke
And the lives I took
Will he walk away
Cause my souls
Its too late to save

Now I aint getting into heaven
If the devil has his way
I swear Im gonna live forever
Heading back to santa fe
Got debts to pay in santa fe
Its judgment day in santa fe

    I believe this songs is a confession of an outlaw. Even though his actions are outside the norm he still believes that down inside he can justify what he has done and even portrait himself as a good person.

    It says that it's too late to save his life from the coming judgement day because he became a very most sinner not be able to beg for pardon to god his sins and that's not be able to forgive him.

    It tells about the reality here on earth (world as evil) and that naturally man has innate goodness. It tells how powerful "environmental influences" are!
