Out of Space

There’s no room for children in heaven anymore
They took up too much space in our paradise
We had to leave them howling at the gate

We tried other things, of course, but it was fate
Forget nine hells, we packed all sinners into ice
Still no room for children in heaven anymore

Then, running out of options, we shut the door
On those we didn’t like, put them too in the ice
It was satisfying, watching them howling at the gate

Soon we began to fear it was much too late,
The angels all squeezed onto one pin, that was nice
Still no room for children in heaven anymore

Our gods should have seen this coming, therefore
We threw them out next, but it did not suffice
(We had tried all other things, it was only fate)
That we had to leave them howling at the gate

Whatever we tried, still the squeeze did not abate
And we had to make someone pay the price
So there’s no room for children in heaven anymore
We had to leave them howling at the gate
