I can't take anymore
I have no more wings
I can't take anymore
The gates of heaven sealed

Don't you hear me
Don't you hear me
Don't you fear me
Of never coming back
Do you know what it's like
When heaven's hung in black

I can't take anymore
Our walls are black and bleed
I can't take anymore
No rooms here for your screams

Don't you hear me
Don't you hear me
Don't you fear me
Of never coming back
Oh, no more tears please
Hanging heaven black

No don't you leave me to die
Don't you leave me to die
Don't you leave me to die
No don't you leave me to die

And you'll know what it's like
The wailing wall of sighs
Hanging heaven black
And you'll know what it's like
When paradise is blind
When heaven's hung in black

Time – How can you say
That I've no time
Am I blind – now you say that
Heaven's blind, yeah
Across the bridge of sighs, blind, time, time

Oh lord, don't you leave me to die
No, don't you leave me to die
Don't you leave me to die
No lord, don't you leave me to die

And you'll know what it's like
The wailing wall of sighs
Hanging heaven black
And you'll know what it's like
When paradise is blind
Painting heaven black
Across the bridge of sighs
Your losing heaven's light
Heavens hung in black

    Losing a good friend in battle because he pushed me out of the way and took my bullet. He sacrificed himself for me. He left behind a child and a wife for me. I had nothing but me to come back to. Why? How could he ever imagine my life was worth more than he had to sacrifice? I, to this day, have never met, been able to face his wife and child. I was not worth the sacrifice he made.

    From the view point of st. Peter telling a fallen soldier that he has no more room in heaven for him and he must return to earth and the soldier wishing he could just die and not to be sent back to war.

    The general meaning of the lyrics could very well be of that of depression. Don't know the "official" story behind the words, though.

    The title is from a quote from american president abraham lincoln when he saw the casualty reports from the battle of gettysburg, and after reading that he said, 'tonight the heaven's are hung in black
