The Angel’s Ball

There’s a white sheet that’s been thrown over my eyes
The outline of life has faded from sight
And while everything once seemed so black and white
I know now that the grey is where I live my life

I love the pretty colours, the pinks and blues
The radiance of their beauty, well you know it lights up the room
But in the corner of the whites of my eyes water starts to loom
The power of his beauty burnt out too soon

And I’ve been on a gold rush for another shot of poison
And tonight I will stake my claim
Down my throat flows that cooling pollution
Are we just pawns in the hands of God while he plays some sick chess game?

Behind the sun there’s a dance being held
For all the souls that were robbed from us and turned into angels
And the echoes of their laughter rings through the land cracking the bells
Of the churches built by humans who conspire theories of hell

And the innocence has been raped and left for dead
The rainbow bled all its colours, a cloud is what was left
And outside tonight I tried to dance it was a good attempt
The streets were lonely and it started to rain so I ran for cover to keep from getting wet

And I’ve been on a gold rush for another shot of poison
And tonight I will stake my claim
Down my throat flows that cooling pollution
Are we just pawns in the hands of God while he plays some sick chess game?

Grab my gun, point it at the sky and shoot until the clouds are dead
And if it stops raining I will go out and finish my dance
And when the sun steps aside will the angels accept me as one of them?
Or am I damned to walk this earth with just a memory of him?

I’ve been on a gold rush for another shot of poison
And tonight I will stake my claim
Down my throat flows that cooling pollution
Are we just pawns in the hands of God while he plays some sick chess game?
