lyrics

There are angels with swords
Waging heavenly wars in the walls of my mind
But we're running out of time

For it seems that my uncle who I thought was some crazy angel returned to the sky
Or did he just die?

Oh my baby I know it drives me crazy when I cry
You said everything's gonna be alright if I quit drinking but you lie

Because there ain't no mystery gonna save my soul
There is nobody here gonna shed a tear
As you’re growing old
And the cold black hands wrap round your throat

They are burying the corpse
In their reckless words and their foolish thoughts
Oh I get tired, of hearing people lie

And the clocks don't even tick round here they just breathe
Could they even tell me the time
Is this funeral mine?

Oh my baby, I wish I was a bird, oh lord I'd fly
You said everything was gonna be alright if I quit drinking, but you lie
You said everything was gonna be alright come tomorrow
Then somebody died
