Don't Get Lost In Heaven (Original Demo Version)

B-side on the the El Mañana/Kids With Guns CD single. No choir. No seamless lead-in to Demon Days. No perfect pairing of two songs to offer an uplifting finale to a musical masterpiece. Simply Damon, strolling down the road, skipping stones across a pond, and singing about the doom of the world to a simple reggae beat. If youíve always wanted to know what Damon would sound like if he imitated Bob Dylan, look no further. Though it's impossible to imagine this being actually a demo. It's fully shaped and seems to be just as mastered as any album track.The animated video was created by Search For a Star winner Sowerby. ItísÖ.unique. Clearly, I am not nearly smart or deep enough to fully appreciate it.

Lyrics:

Got off a plane to the countryside,
I drove to the mountain and holding the ground
There was crack on the corner and someone dead,
and fire coming out of the monkey's head

[Chorus:]
Don't get lost in heaven
They got locks on the gate
Don't go over the edge
you'll make a big mistake

Put me in a cab to suburbia
I just took a line but I wasn't with you
There was more of it there, when I got back home
But you had left me,you don't know my soul...
You're a whole bad mistake,yeah,you're a whole one...

[Chorus]
Aaaah...
