lyrics

"take this advice - throw some salt upon the grave
and just move on son - there’s no one here worth trying to save"

a slap of lightning and love has cursed this still born child
lost and wounded, I crawled into the night to the church bells chimes

'cause I heard a rumor about a waitress across town
who sees your future in the ten cards that she lays down

and if you fail to understand the signs
just slide inside her booth, she’ll activate your mind

‘cause Angeline, Angeline sees everything

retired angel, she hides her face behind her hair
and her silvered fingers dance like knives along the air

she lays the cards down until they form a celtic cross
"ignore the garden ‘cause nothing grows when a seed is lost"

the red light flickers and the hangman appears first
to the repeating cannonade, the chariots reverse

‘cause Angeline, Angeline sees everything

the radio crackles “there’s no moonlight at all”
and the heavens answer “there’s no moonlight at all”
“take devil’s shoestring, tie it nine times in all...”
this was the night I was born
this was the night I was...

the red light flickers and the hangman appears first
to the repeating cannonade, the chariots reverse

‘cause Angeline, Angeline sees everything
