Lyrics:

GRAVE OF AN ANGEL

VERSE 1:
In the mirror of a window spies a shadow of a face
And every passing eye reflects a foe
The trappings you relied upon have all but been replaced
By whispers of a love you hardly know

PRE-CHORUS 1:
When honor burns as a ghost yet spurns
The pieces fight and falter in the field
Compelled by a voice, they all make a choice
The cracks don't show until you think you're healed

CHORUS 1:
Aim your weapon at the grave of an angel
Ask your questions of her bones
Beg forgiveness at the grave of an angel
While you wonder what she owns

BRIDGE 1:
Wings enfold you, heaven help you
Only hell might know who controls you

VERSE 2:
Every bullet is a puzzle that is missing half a thought
A mystery obscuring all the clues
Your orders from on high describe an enemy they wrought
It might be time to pay their dues

CHORUS 2:
Find the answers at the grave of an angel
Was she worth another glance
Look in closely on the grave of an angel
Does she beckon you by chance

BRIDGE 2:
Raised above, you see lines and lies, you know you'll return to their midst
Soul in the churn, recall what you learn, forget how much rests in her kiss

CHORUS 3:
Free a secret at the grave of an angel
Hope her spirit hears a yell
Bring a verdict to the grave of an angel
Chain the memory that dwells

At the grave of an angel. (x2 or 3)
[Exit]
