Where Heros Go To Die

This song is by Espen Lind and appears on the album Sway: Red (1997).

I spoke to Elvis on the phone
the other day
His ghost was calling
from a pay phone in L.A.

He said he'd meet me
on the corner of my dreams
And we would ride to heaven
to see the stuff you can't see
on your TV screen

Ah-hah
A-ha-ha yeah
Ooh-o-oh yeah

We drove his Cadillac
up to heaven's floor
Knock knock knockin'
on heaven's door
Yeah

The security angel asked for some I.D.
Then the gate parted
and the music started
as we rolled into the front yard

If I was special
maybe I
could be a hero
when I die
I'd get my wings and learn to fly

Yeah-e-yeah yeah

I feel so funky 'cos I know
When I die I wish to go
to the place
where all the heroes go to die

I-hi I-i-hi yeah
Oh-o-hi yeah

This special heaven
was home to all the stars
The first one I saw was Hendrix
burning his guitar
Freddie Mercury and Kennedy was there
But I didn't see Marilyn
so I forgot to ask about their affair

If I was special
maybe I
could be a hero
when I die
I'd get my wings and learn to fly

Yeah-e-yeah-ah

I feel so funky 'cos I know
When I die I wish to go
To the place
where all the heroes go to die

Yeah yeah yeah yeah
(Mmm...)
(...)

My skin is dotted pink and green
I hope to God this is a dream
or else I'm gonna scream
(...)

If you say I lie to you
I tell you every word is true too
(...)

Ah yeah

That very evening I had a talk with God
My lord he asked me
what I thought of life above
I said "Everything is awesome man
it's like a hero wonderland
I'm sure if I see the full picture yet
but I think I understand"

"Yes, I'd say it's kinda nice
Eternal life beyond them skies
We live our lives with open eyes"

Yeah and he said:
"Everything you want is free
There's always sunshine on TV
in the place
where all the heroes go to die"

Heroes go to die

Baby
Oooh to die

Elvis said: "It's time to fly"
So all the heroes waved goodbye
from their jungle in the skies

Yeah-e-yeah yeah

I feel so funky now I know
When I die I wish to go
to the place
where all the heroes go to die

Oooh...

Yeah yeah yeah
