William Control - Where the Angels Burn lyrics

I self destruct, panicked dreams and violence skies in a lonely bed I lie in, ooh please instruct All alone aside for my image The deepest wings I drown I feel like a fool, like a mad man fighting cancer I feel my abuse, a drug addled victim I understand him Somehow I'll be there, in the flames of my own failure Somehow I'll find you Stranger we become Through the gates of iron sin When I chase you down to hell Would I give up everything for Stranger we become Through the gates of iron sin When I chase you down to hell Would I give up everything for love? I self destruct, silence of the anger and I laughed alone I feel like a fool, like a mad man fighting demons Pigs and effigies I feel my abuse, a drug addled nothing, I understand him Somehow I'll find you in the flames of my own failure Somehow I'll be there Stranger we become Through the gates of iron sin When I chase you down to hell Would I give up everything for Stranger we become Through the gates of iron sin When I chase you down to hell Would I give up everything for love? Make me strange, where the angels burn Take me away, I'd give up anything Make me strange, where the angels burn Take me away, I give up anything for you I stood at the gates of Heaven and spat into the face of Saint Peter And told him to f** himself That was a laugh, that place Heaven Will never exist for me as long as you're not there standing by my side I can dwell on the confusion of my experience But I can try to live all days in anguish Either option, I lose, if I wanna return to the sunshine and the living I must cross an ocean of hate to get there And a culture of enormous sorrow stands in my way But you're worth and enduring the worst of life's creations Your love, your forgiveness and tender touch I would set myself on fire a thousand times for just five more minutes Of your magnificence against my skin I'm unfocused, I don't want people to like me Nothing matters except dying a thousand d**hs For receiving the simple pleasure of holding you one more time I don't have a clue how to find you But I know that somewhere in the sunlight of the spirit You're there guiding me home to your bosom We really are just made of iron and bone Held together with weak skin and easy-to-open veins We've been created from dust only to live and love And get shoved back into the dirt My beloved, I don't have any idea how I'm going to find you but I will Somehow, in the smiling grace of our ancestors And with every ounce of energy in my bones I will find you, all my love, all my love, all my love
