We took a trip down in '87
We were looking for a place where we don't fear heaven
We Got
Got some guns, got some dogs
But just like them dogs, well those guns just get bigger.

Look into the town to show us what they got,
Take ya to the cabin yeah we'll show ya what we got.
We got space to do what you please.
If you never make it out.

If I never stand at another corner trying hard to be a father
Let's be, let's be love.
If I never need again I'll find that sleep again,
Let's be, let's be love.
Took a trip down in '87
They were looking for a place where we don't need heaven.
Oh, once you crawl in you'll never come back again.
Oh, once you crawl in you'll never come back again.

If I never stand at another corner trying hard to be a father
Let's be, let's be love.
If I never need again I'll find that sleep again,
Let's be, let's be love.

No I never pray God reigns today.
No I never pray God reigns today.
No I never pray God reigns today.
No I never pray God reigns today.

If you catch us coming up about around the bend.
If we step a little higher will we find it then?
There's gotta be something roaming up around the bend.

Oh, once you crawl in you'll never come back again.
Oh, once you crawl in you'll never come back again.

No I never pray God reigns today.
No I never pray God reigns today.
No I never pray God reigns today.
No I never pray God reigns today.

    They are fed up with the hypocracy of religion. "though i never pray" (not religious) "god reigns today" (the religious establish controls everything).

    Either that, or they just did too much smack while writing the lyrics.
