You made your bed, that’s where you'll lie (you make your bed, that’s where you'll lie)
No pearly gates when you die (no pearly gates when you die)
We tried to teach, you didn’t learn (no no, you'll never learn)
You’re going down, you’re gonna burn

Fast at passing judgement and your quick to cast a stone
Hypocrite taking shit, leave me alone
Thump the book and twist the word, you’re setting sinners straight
Point your finger, wag your tongue, then pass around the plate

I’ve made my bed, that’s where I’ll lie
Won’t see this gates when I die
And I’ve been told I’ll never learn
I’m going down I’m gonna...

Screaming demons all hell's broke loose and other dark remarks
You say that’s Satan’s waiting for me, but I don’t give a fuck
If words and music tick you off, then you’re the one who’s sick
But I think it's fucking followers that really make you tick

As far as I can tell, I’m going to hell
As far as I know, that's where I'm gonna go
As far as I can tell, I’m going to hell
As far as I can see, you're going with me

You made your bed, that’s where you’ll lie
No pearly gates when you die
We tried to teach, you didn’t learn
You’re going down, you’re gonna burn

A holy smoke? Is this a joke? I mean, man, you’re on the move
Shut ’em up and shut ’em down if you don’t approve
Cuss and curse and stuff your purse, and tell me where I’m goin’
Holy cow man, don’t stop now, man, your bank account is growin'

You made you’re bed, that’s where you’ll lie
No pearly gates when you die
We tried to teach, you didn’t learn
You’re going down, you’re gonna burn

You made you’re bed, that’s where you’ll lie
Thank God, I’ve got a place to sleep
No pearly gates when you die
Why should I worry now or cry
We tried to teach, you didn’t learn
You know, I’m really not concerned
You’re going down, you’re gonna burn
