play To Love

from Airstream BUY Slabster

The righteous and the infidels,  just outside the gates of hell
Waiting for their judgment to fall
They looked around from face to face  -  so different in their faith and race
How could heaven ever welcome them all?

Each one certain that he's made the grade
Judging all the others with a holy rage
There's one crime that all of them are guilty of
The commandment of  one God to love

Each one was surprised as hell   to see the way the judgment fell
'Cause none of them would see the light above
All thinking they could stand apart, but the same hate was in every heart
There's little left of a religion without love.

Each one certain that he's made the grade
Judging all the others with a holy rage
'Cause there's one crime that all of them were guilty of
The commandment of  one God to love

All of them appealed their case and stood before the One
Askin why would God make different faiths concealed in different tongues
Heaven knows the reason all beliefs are not the same
For God to see who loves their enemies,  He goes by different names

Each religion  failed the test
By fighting over which faith said it best
And there's one crime that all of them are guilty of
The commandment from one God  -  to love

The commandment of one God  -  to love
