Heaven Nor Hell Lyrics
I sold my soul way down in the dirt
But stole it back and forever in debt
And for a moment I don't even care
Until I felt his breath at my neck
And maybe even you can feel it too
He's on a...

I feel the song heaven nor hell is not about the afterlife, it has to do with the way one chooses to live their life. You can be a good person and have evil tendencies and viseversa. To say that an angel and the devil look pretty good hand in hand is a brilliant way of saying ones actions aren't necessarily dictated by the angel on the right shoulder or the devil on the left. It's a joint venture. Why let either one have their way? Their both useless when push meets shove. That's my take I'm probably wrong. It's the opinion of some one born into a roman catholic family with strong ties to the church. However I don't believe or disbelieve. I just appreciate the song because it suits my beliefs to a tee.

The song is about humanity and the struggle between good and evil in mortal humans. It acknowledges the existence of the devil, and god but that it is humans that make their own fate, not the influences of religion or the even the absence of it if that is the case. it is an agnostic view of religion.

Since Volbeat has made numerous claims against religion, it might not only be denouncing a separation, but flat out denying an afterlife, saying that both are fake and that neither matter.

it’s in the lyrics...
And then he was the angel that became the devil....
And now he’s just here to distract people through music...
The video states, to me, the deception that the cars represent God and Satan
and during the slow part there are tires falling from the sky that are the fallen angels.....

Well since satan has his hand in everything of this world I'm not surprised. Even the band looks dark. Most musicians , bands, actors, hollywood are Illuminiati they sell their souls to the satan for money and fame. This sounds crazy but it's true when your politically awake you understand. Most of the world is asleep do this sounds crazy to them.

I think Volbeat is saying that certain spiritual beliefs are merely myths....
Essentially, that we as people have ourselves, not any other forces, to thank and/or blame for our own actions and outcomes/consequences. Definitely interesting.....& a Kick-Ass Song, no matter what your or my beliefs may be!!!!!
