Hole In The Ground (Lyrics)

by Jerry Boutot

Part 1 – Old Age/Dying

I look all around me and I see
that everyone I know is dying
We used to be young and free
Now we’re chained to old age and we’re dying

It’s clearly evident to me
All I have left to do now is die
As I face up to this reality
I hang down my head and I cry

We’ve got a lifetime of knowledge but little respect
Oh how could life let this happen to us
We work all our lives and what do we get?
Is a hole in the ground all that’s waiting for us?

As I lose my grip on reality
I’m drifting from mother society
And insanity gets a grip on me
And I’m losing my sense of security

I can feel death all around me
Fear surrounds me and my heart starts to pound me
And the pain is far beyond all imagining
But somehow I know all the pain will be ending

Part 2 – Death/Afterlife

Like a sudden jolt of electricity
Like a cannon ball at high velocity
I am soaring through the air at light speed
Then I finally see reality

I laugh and laugh as I fly through the sky
It is better than any earth high
Exaltation and fear swept aside
As I am part of an all knowing mind

And the real truth is becoming clear to me
That my physical life was only a dream
And I laugh again at the understanding
That I have only just awakened from that dream

The world was just a test for me
God put me to sleep in a body
If I had real faith in him as the supreme being
Then I would survive the test

And I would have really believed before I died
That I would enter a new wonderful life
And all that had happened to me was meant to be
And it fit into his plan irrevocably

I can feel and see blinding light surround me
It is hot and good and it is ecstasy
And I let it in and take me willingly
Then I soar into the heavens at light speed

The gates of the city open to me
I feel great presences all around me
The light of the world appears before me
And I know that the light is Godly

He need not speak any words to me
I know what he knows about me
A silence falls all around me
An understanding enters into me

My heart knows this is judgement day
I look into the light with no shame
Then the light enfolds and enters me
And then I fly like the wind

All the memories of my life drifting away
And I feel all of the souls who are with me
I can feel them as if they were a part of me
We are as one enormous entity

Part 3 – the Moral/Warning

So let me tell you friend
That this is not the end
Here there is no end for you or for me
Forever condemned in the fires of Hell
Or forever in Heaven and free
The choice is not up to you or me
In this life you will buy that destiny
And in the next you will surely pay the fee
