Track Name: Angels & Shackles
I know nothing of angels
Nothing of shackles
Nothing worth talking about
Rest my head in the sand
Say my prayers out loud

I've forgotten the answer
Pursued the dancer
Followed her thighs to the moon
Felt the tip of her hand
Over my unhealing wound

It was late in the evening
As I lay dreaming
A ladder fell from the sky
Held in a holy embrace
Though there's no reason why

We tumbled 'til morning
My body was yearning
To rise up with yours, beyond
I can't remember your face
Do you remember my arm?
