there’s a little angel with a broken wing
there are tears and oh god how i feel its sting
there are chains binding her to the bone
she is so desperately alone

she takes a pill to forget
twenty more for each regret
she takes her pain and washes it away
a synthetic cure-all to lead the soul away


there is an angel on a grave
there is an angel in the ground
there is an angel that gave up hope
there is an angel and my tears make me drown

drugs cannot take away pain, they can however take away a beautiful life… it is a sad world
