Song Description

I was not going to upload this song at all until my upcoming album "Master Of Ceremonies" was complete... But the fact that this song was picked as a finalist in the John Lennon Song Writing Contest changed my mind about uploading it...

Story Behind the Song

I wrote the lyrics to Nothing To Gain when I was feeling a little distant from god I have had a pretty healthy relationship with God in the past, but at the time that I wrote the song, I felt that I was really missing something in my life and that was a spiritual connection with the creator of the universe I dont believe in Christianity, but I do believe in a higher power that must have created this speck of dust in the grand obsidian sky we call Earth Essentially, Nothing To Gain is a prayer ...

Lyrics

Nothing To Gain
By: Steve Hall (HAUL)

"I will soothe your pain"
In my hearts where I feel it,
I'm staring at the heavens waiting for yall to heal it now,
"I will ease you strain"
I've been searching for ages,
It seems I can't find the answers in these pages,
"You'll Be Waiting In Vein"
I keep waiting,
I'm looking for God but I can only find Satan here,
"I've Got Nothing For You To Gain"
But I'm not praying for the last time,
Yo,

It's to be cursed walking the dirt of the Earth,
Death is second only to life which comes first.
And it's the worst living in delirious days,
But hey, they say you work in mysterious ways,
I'm steady digging my grave feeling like a slave,
But am I any different in the way I behave???
I close my eyes and pray for more than boring dismay,
Waiting for the day you come and take me away,
Angels coming in place, I think I'm falling from grace,
I need the blood of your veins, please give me a taste,
I need a hand to embrace, cause' I'm stuck under water,
Terrified face, I can't hold my breath any longer,
Please help me get stronger, Please help me get by,
Please help me see the truth if I'm feeling a lie,
I'm just waiting to die, clearing this tear from my eye,
I'm anguished day to day and the days passing by,


"I will soothe your pain"
In my hearts where I feel it,
I'm staring at the heavens waiting for yall to heal it now,
"I will ease you strain"
I've been searching for ages,
It seems I can't find the answers in these pages,
"You'll Be Waiting In Vein"
I keep waiting,
I'm looking for God but I can only find Satan here,
"I've Got Nothing For You To Gain"
But I'm not praying for the last time,
Yo,

Although I know that you will never lie to me,
It feels you've abandoned me in my sobriety,
I feel anxiety cause' I'm let down,
I feel as if I'm down here all alone now,
I'm looking for some clouds with pictures in them,
But this shroud of darkness just won't let them glisten,
Oh Dear God listen, Christ listen to me,
Hear me down here, right here, dude it's me,
See we've always been close, that's why it hurts so much,
I want you in my heart, but we've both lost touch,
Both lost so much, There's a hole in my soul,
Come and stand by me and let's go for a stroll,
Explain in toll the universe as a whole,
And why we all live in monetary control,
Show the light of your soul as it glitters and glows,
As the green grass grows and the clear rivers flow,

"I will soothe your pain"
In my hearts where I feel it,
I'm staring at the heavens waiting for yall to heal it now,
"I will ease you strain"
I've been searching for ages,
It seems I can't find the answers in these pages,
"You'll Be Waiting In Vein"
I keep waiting,
I'm looking for God but I can only find Satan here,
"I've Got Nothing For You To Gain"
But I'm not praying for the last time,
Yo,

Nowadays Divine presence is an unfathomable after thought for most people...
Sometimes I am not sure I even truly believe myself...
But I do know that whenever I am down and out or I fall down...
There is something inside me that helps me up...
and I would rather live believing in something more...
Than die believing in nothing at all...

"I will soothe your pain"
In my hearts where I feel it,
I'm staring at the heavens waiting for yall to heal it now,
"I will ease you strain"
I've been searching for ages,
It seems I can't find the answers in these pages,
"You'll Be Waiting In Vein"
I keep waiting,
I'm looking for God but I can only find Satan here,
"I've Got Nothing For You To Gain"
But I'm not praying for the last time,
Yo,
