Angels come to earn their wings
Shield me from the pain I hold so tight
They seem so invisible
The blind can't read without their light

And then the darkness came
And cluttered up my kindness game
Well everyone said, Keep a smile
And sweep your hurt beneath the tile and bow to me
Yeah

Clipped of wings and forced to fly
All my trust naive weighs me down, down
Like a child deflected sight
Deaf ears can't hear the killing sounds

Robbed of all my sanity the norm was mediocrity
And wise men fell from pedestals
The weak made goblets from their skulls
And came for me

Now, before I go, I'll let you know a secret
Then maybe you will understand
Staring deep into your soul
A thought could make the torture go
But it seems love never can

Free, roll out to the sea
Martyr out of me as I sail crucified
Bleed, taking of my seed
Kiss me, turn and leave and then I have to die, goodbye

I lost my faith so long ago
The worthy come, the worthy go to sleep
Resting far beyond the lies they keep
On my tongue a thousand tears
A burning hate that reappears in me
Yeah

So now you turn to me, my friend
To try to make me heed my own words
It doesn't work that way
It comes my time, reach ladders I can't climb
I'll take another way

Free, roll out to the sea
Martyr out of me as I sail crucified
Bleed, taking of my seed
Kiss me, turn and leave and then I have to die, goodbye
Yeah, oh

Angels come to earn their wings
Where were they when I thought I could fly?
But they remain invisible
Wonder why we lose our will to fight

Still now the darkness comes
We close the shades, avoid being numb
But through the cracks beneath the door
It finds a way, become its whore
So lay with me, away with me

Free, roll out to the sea
Martyr out of me as I sail crucified
Bleed, taking of my seed
Kiss me, turn and leave and then I have to die, goodbye

Free, roll out to the sea
Martyr out of me as I sail crucified
Bleed, taking of my seed
Kiss me, turn and leave and then I have to die, goodbye
