Lyrics

Angel

Angel falls in the street
the dogs of summer at his feet
no fanfare for his final defeat
the devil takes his wallet and is gone
:
the beat goes on
two million people's swan song don't add up to a hit
Angel's gone gone gone
he had a life but he never got a chance to live it

devil didn't get much
from that Angel hit
spent it all in a night
on a bag of strong shit
slept it off in a friend's loft
while Angel's Mother wept
down at the precinct identifying the body

the beat goes on
two million people's swan song don't add up to a hit
Angel's gone gone gone
he had a life but he never got a chance to live it

somewhere there's a place
where all the colors of the rainbow
shine down like some holy flashlight
exposing all the cracks in these sidewalks
so we won't trip and fall at night

Angel was bound to fall
it was written into his story
he never had a chance
he wasn't bound for glory
Devil went down behind him
followed Angel's chalk-out line
there's only one road in this neighborhood

the beat goes on
two million people's swan song don't add up to a hit
Angel's gone gone gone
he had a life but he never got a chance to live it
