"It was the patient, cut-flower sound of a man waiting to die." - Patrick Rothfuss

Is heaven an existing place,
Is hell deep down below us?
Mama, if it all is real,
then will I go to heaven?

Mama, if I killed a man,
no matter how far after that I ran,
do you think I'd be in hell...
Mama, will I go to heaven?

In dead of night
the sigh of death
will signify one's passing,
but their importance
on this earth
won't be forever lasting.

But mama, up in heaven,
would i be remembered?
Down, deep down, deep down in hell,
would I be dismembered?

Mama, you are good to me,
but I don't know 'cuz
I can't see,
was I good to you?

Mama, if I failed you,
If i failed pa-pa,
If i disgraced the family
where would i go? to heaven?

Mama, I just cut myself.
My life is bad.
I'm feeling sad.
Can't tell if it was fake or real... but will i go to heaven?

If you think
You know of death,
And all, and torture,
then think again, for
no one knows,
Satan, ye hellish scorcher.

Mama, yes, I do need help,
Mama, I am bad.
Mama, oh, will god say
"To hell with this sorry lad"?

Mama, mama, mama,
If i die tonight,
mama, mama, mama...

Mama, will I go to heaven?

Note: I am NOT very religeous nor do i cut or anything like that. I simply like dark writing, and i completely improvised that (crappy, yes, i think,) song.

I love the repetition of words you used here; it adds a dark and eerie mood to song. Beautiful use of words too; they're unexpected and elegant. And, to respond to your comment, it is far from "crappy" :)
