    On Heaven’s Radio

    To life’s tune, lyrics I wrote
    Hoping the song would reach platinum
    Writing I was so full of hope
    Of great success when I was done

    But in trying to sell the lyrics I found
    No one liked the words or the beat
    To them it was an unpopular sound
    Though some called it unique

    Some were very critical
    Of the lyrics of the song
    Some claimed it too political
    And others said the message was so wrong

    Some said they’d heard it all before
    And that the song I sung was in vain
    But it inspired me to sing it all the more
    To the rhythms of the pain

    Finally I got one last chance
    My song to perform on life’s stage
    But to the melody no one would dance
    It only sparked anger and rage

    Rejected and despised life’s concert I quit
    And homeward started to go
    But God let me know that in spite of all of it
    It was a hit on Heaven’s Radio
