Faith

Faith says she's sorry
she was up all night
knocking on gates for you
but they had all been locked up tight
against everything you'd been told you knew

Faith says she's failed you
she says "just give me
one more chance to prove;
I'll enlist my daughters Hope and Love and
somehow we three may get through."

and with every passing hour
the walls grow taller round the towers
and when their wings failed them
they threw stones but
rocks were turned to sand and dust
and scoffed the trio's mighty powers

Faith says she's sorry
all twelve gates of Heaven
closed their doors on you
they must have changed the password while she was
looking the other way and now
there's nothing she can do

I'm so bad at deciphering these things.
Are you trying to say that Faith, hope and love are not always enough?

So, Heaven has upgraded to electronic authentication for its security system?

I think it's still word of mouth. but if that were the case, it would certainly explain things; Faith has a hard time with the computer stuff.
