Billy doesn’t know what’s going on 
They took away his job and they took away his home
And they took away the part of him that made him run
He had heaven in his heart and now he’s got the heart of stone
Annie she’s been gone for quite some time
Living on the pills and the cheap red wine
Waiting for a soldier boy who don’t come home
She had heaven in her heart and now she’s got the heart of stone
Little Jimmy prayed to the Lord for help
The Lord wasn’t listening –had to help himself
And the blade he used was six inches long
He had heaven in his heart and now he’s got the heart of stone
He had heaven
He had heaven
He had heaven in his heart
The Jihadi kid with the shaven head
”Praise be to Allah there’ll be fifty dead when I walk into that school over there
With this thing strapped on”
He had heaven in his heart and now he’s got the heart of stone
The Lords of the Universe they say
Gonna make the poor one’s pay and pay
We’ll take them down to hell real soon- it won’t take long
They had heaven in their hearts and now they got the hearts of stone
Alexandra rose in the middle of the night
She walked out to the ocean in the clear moonlight
And she wrote upon the water what was in her soul
She had heaven in her heart –said take away these hearts of stone
