lyrics

As I begin my ascension, into this desperate dimension, I realize I’m not alone
I’m surrounded by clowns with ruby red frowns, frightened by their terrorizing tone
They’re chanting a chant, and I know that I can’t escape them, I’m chilled to the bone
They start pressing forward and pushing me toward a cross I cannot condone

But I dare not fight back, now my body’s gone slack, then as one they all start, start to moan
They’re feeding on me, my fresh energy is being sucked out of me violently
I reach for my sword, for strength I implore, from a God who’s far out of sight
But my sword isn’t there, and I don’t seem to care, ‘cause I can’t find a reason to fight

The angels forgot how to fly
The angels forgot how to fly

Once I was a soul who was pure rock and roll determined to do what was right
Once what was pure, is now so obscure, only money is equal to might
And what could have been warriors are now victims and voyeurs and lawyers of average height
In stories of dragons and rose covered wagons, lies society’s same alibi

The angels forgot how to fly
The angels forgot how to fly

But the clowns rule the towns and the drugs all surround, the diamonds all destined to die
Without breaking the chains, they struggle in vain and search for their next humble high
While the crooks with their crimes, and the poets lost rhymes seek the answer to why
These souls without sins, these fairytale men, left us here with this knot to untie

The angels forgot how to fly
The angels forgot how to fly
The angels forgot how to fly
The angels forgot how to fly

As I end my ascension from that desperate dimension, I look around and heave a great sigh
As I end my ascension from that desperate dimension, I look around and heave a great sigh

The angels forgot how to fly
For once what was great is now a world full of hate
The angels forgot how to fly
For once what was great is now a world full of hate
The angels forgot how to fly
For once what was great is now a world full of hate
The angels forgot how to fly
For once what was great is now a world full of hate
