Lyrics

go ahead stomp your feet on the floorboards
clap your hands if that's really what you came here for
hang a prayer for luck over the door
they promised me heaven i was hoping for something more

stomp the drum good and loud shake the walls down
scream and holler jump about all together now
ain't nothing like a lie to gather 'round
they promised me heaven i was hoping for so much more

heaven are we wasted? heaven have we been out long?
heaven are you waiting? heaven this going wrong
pour me up another, this is gonna hurt
should've known it all along
heaven better shake it, heaven better make it strong

go to hell stomp your feet on the floorboards
step in time, count 'em in just to be real sure
this ain't a revolution anymore
they promised me heaven i was hoping for something more

heaven are we wasted? heaven have we been out long?
heaven are you waiting? heaven this going wrong
pour me up another, this is gonna hurt
should've known it all along
heaven better shake it, heaven better make it strong
heaven better shake it, heaven better make it strong
