​What Are They Doing In Heaven Today?

This song is by Mogwai and appears on the album Les Revenants (2013).

What are they doing in heaven today

Where sin and sorrow have all gone away

Peace abounds like a river they say

What are they doing there now?

I'm thinking of friends that I used to know

Who lived and suffered in this world below

But they're gone off to heaven, but I want to know

What are they doing there now?


What are they doing in heaven today

Where sin and sorrow have all gone away

Peace abounds like a river they say

What are they doing there now?


There's some whose hearts were burdened with care

They pay for their moment with fighting and tears

But they clung to the cross with trembling and fear

What are they doing there now?

What are they doing in heaven today

Where sin and sorrow have all gone away

Peace abounds like a river they say

What are they doing there now?

And there's some whose bodies were full of disease

Physicians and doctors couldn't give them much ease

But they suffered 'til death brought a final release

But what are they doing there now?

What are they doing in heaven today

Where sin and sorrow have all gone away

Peace abounds like a river they say

What are they doing there now?


There's some who were poor and often despised

They looked up toward heaven with tear-blinded eyes

While people heedless and deaf to their cries

What are they doing there now?

What are they doing in heaven today

Where sin and sorrow have all gone away

Peace abounds like a river they say

What are they doing there now?

What are they doing in heaven today

Where sin and sorrow have all gone away

Peace abounds like a river they say

What are they doing there now?
