I saw your face
Whiter than purity
Then I saw savages
Standing before me

(Poison, poison, poison)
Bows and arrows
(Poison, poison, poison)
Tipped with poison

(Poison, poison, poison)
Make tenderness please
(Poison, poison, poison)
Stand by my pillow

I see evil
Every time I dream
I see earth's poison
(Poison, poison, poison)
I hear violence sing
(Singing, singing, singing)

Even your touch
(Singing, singing, singing)
Once so pure
(Pure and pure and pure and)

Comes fates cold hand
(Cold hand, cold hand, cold hand)
On my locked door

Won't you send those angels
To watch over me?

I can't catch the bow
(Can't catch, can't catch, can't catch)
That this planet has thrown
(Can't catch, can't catch, can't catch)

I can't catch this bow
(Can't catch this bow, can't catch)
On my own
(On my own, on my own)

In come the arrows
(Arrows, arrows, arrows)
Like a needle

You pierce my heart
And I taste poison
(Poison, poison, poison)
You pierce my soul
With bows and arrows

Won't you send those angels
To watch over me?
