Homeless Persons’ Memorial Day Music – Song #111

Five Finger Death Punch
“Wrong Side of Heaven” —

Five Finger Death Punch, often shortened to Death Punch and abbreviated as 5FDP or FFDP, is an American heavy metal band from Las Vegas, Nevada. Formed in 2005, the band’s name comes from the kung fu movie The Five Fingers of Death.

 Five Finger Death Punch are the recipients of the Radio Contraband Rock Radio Awards for “Indie Artist of the Year” in 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. They were also honored for “Video of the Year” for “Wrong Side of Heaven” in 2014.

To add to the contributions made by the band through their numerous military concerts, the ensemble wanted to create a music video in order to assist vagrant veterans of the armed forces by publicly portraying the consequences of post-traumatic stress disorder on wounded warriors. The video, directed by Nick Peterson, increases visibility on the suffering of vagrant veterans of the armed forces and the consequences of post-traumatic stress disorder.

I spoke to God today, and she said that she’s ashamed
What have I become? what have I done?
I spoke to the Devil today, and he swears he’s not to blame
And I understood, cause I feel the same

Arms wide open, I stand alone
I’m no hero, and I’m not made of stone
Right or wrong, I can hardly tell
I’m on the wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side of hell
The wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side, righteous side of hell

I heard from God today, and he sounded just like me
What have I done? Who have I become?​
I saw the Devil today, and he looked a lot like me
I looked away, I turned away!

Arms wide open, I stand alone
I’m no hero, and I’m not made of stone
Right or wrong, I can hardly tell
I’m on the wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side of hell

I’m not defending, downward descending
Falling further and further away!
Getting closer every day!

I’m getting closer every day, to the end
To the end, the end, the end
I’m getting closer every day!

Arms wide open, I stand alone
I’m no hero, and I’m not made of stone
Right or wrong, I can hardly tell
I’m on the wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side of hell
The wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side of hell
The wrong side of heaven, and the righteous side, righteous side of hell.
