"Angel in Blue" as written by Mu Jin Jang and Seth Justman....
We met in a bar
Out on Chesapeake Bay
With her white patent boots
And her blouse red lame

A table top dancer
She would smile on cue
Oh those lips of an angel
Angel in blue

She'd been dancin for ages
Through cities of bars
She was kickin' the habit
Of scoring in cars

She'd been drained of her spirit
All caged up in this zoo
A wild cat angel
Angel in blue

And as she stared out into nowhere
I thought yes I thought she might break down and cry
Oh when I whispered I thought I could love her

She just said, "Baby don't even bother to try"
And I watched as she spoke
Her words chilled my bones
All her friends did her favors

That were really just loans
And she never had dreams
So they never came true
Oh the palest of angels
Angel in blue

And the bees they had stung her
The birds they had flown
There were guys she could number
But none had she known

And she never had dreams
So they never came true
Oh my fade away angel

Angel in blue
Angel in blue
Angel in blue
Angel in blue

    My InterpretationThis is a song with levels to it. I had forgotten all about it until I heard Love Stinks recently. Ultimately it is about the dystopic death of hope caused by the alienation of modern life. I love how he describes what she is wearing (red top, white boots) but because of the connotations of "blue" (sad or really lost in it's original since it meant lost in the blue aka lost at sea)she is an "angel in blue". Also, there is the porn connection with "blue".
    Either way, his sad protagonist and even sadder narrator are trapped in a world they never made, they live like robots or lesser beings instead of humans. Although blue and wearing red lame and what I envision as a "bold" white boot, she is the "palest" of angels. Her life has meant nothing and she is fading away into utter obscurity.
