Wrong Side of Heaven Lyrics

I spoke to god today, and she said that she's ashamed.
What have I become, what have I done?
I spoke to the devil today, and he swears he's not to blame.
And I understood, cuz I feel the same.

Arms wide open, I stand alone.
I'm no hero,...

    I think most people are missing the point of this song, and yes I have seen the video.

    It unfortunately has nothing to due with veterans (even though I am a disabled vet.) It has more to do with the fall of man.

    The song is sung from Adam's point of view.

    God is ashamed, (adam ate the fruit)
    Devil claims he isn't to blame (free will)
    I stand alone (no other men)
    I'm not made of stone (depression for what he has done, releasing sin into the world)

    I heard from God and she sounded just like me (Having knowledge of good and evil)

    I saw the devil today and he looked a lot like me (A sinner, fallen from grace)

    Wrong side of heaven Righteous side of hell - physically somewhere in the middle like earth,(not in the Garden any more) - spiritually neither good nor bad, just Human

    Let me know what you think.

    This song is about a war hero who is definitely suffering from PTSD. He feels that he has done some seriously messed up things that he struggles to live with and make sense of but at the same time he feels that its not all his fault and he is not a bad person because of it. This song shows that complex feelings after war are not just black and white or good and evil.

    Its about soldiers who do their duty when they go off to war... They are trained to kill enemy paper targets but the psychological effects change when paper becomes flesh.
    "I spoke to god today, and she said that she's ashamed. What have I become what have I done.
    I spoke to the devil today, and he said he's not to blame, I understood cuz I feel the same."
    That's the soldier looking in the mirror. Sad upset hurt and pissed that he took another human life yet he did what he was supposed to do what he was trained to do.
    "I'm not defending, downward descending,
    falling further and further away!
    I'm closer EVERYDAY!

    I'm getting closer every day, to the end.
    The end, The end, the end,
    I'm getting closer EVERYDAY!"
    The soldier feels what he did was wrong he is not justifying his actions he sees the faces of of the men he has killed every time he shuts his eyes he hears the horror the screams the bullets in every routine daily activity.
    He wants an end to the pain he wants to take his own life.
    Approximately 22 veterans take their own life every day most of them under the age of 30.
    I am a veteran. I was a 249 gunner this song depicts exactly how I feel.I thank Five Finger Death Punch for putting my very thoughts to music.

    He spoke to his mom and she told him basically that she's ashamed of him. Then spoke to his father and his father defended himself by saying its not his fault his son turned out that way and Ivan agrees.

    Hes lost himself. He is not a martyr and he has feelings too. He feels as though he let his mom down and he doesn't carry the burden of blaming his father.

    I think this song has to do with his parents, and when he is getting closer and closer everyday, I feel he means closer to forgiveness. He was feeling hurt and saying....yes I have feelings too.
