Heaven is in the eyes of man, in the visions in the mind of man.
Heaven is in the eyes of man,
In the visions in the mind of man,
Never will you ever see a dream alive,
When all they do is struggle to survive.

All the kingdoms have been built,
Lived in with glory and destroyed,
All the countries have been drawn
To be gone in the light of dawn

All the walls that we have built,
Have been torn and made with doors,
All the bridges that we have built
Have been burned to ash by wars.

Wasted away to nothing
Pointless and worthless
All that art and creation
On building a new nation.

Leave that world behind
And have a peace of mind
Don't look to gods above
All you need is here with love.

Live for something that is real
Something you can feel
Live for something that will last
And leave the fighting in the past.

Heaven is in the eyes of man,
In the visions in the mind of man.
We will always struggle to survive
If we can't see a heaven here to thrive.
