"Halo" as written by and Todd David Pipes....
Souls suffer the landscape
In shrouds of dew, as ghosts.
Their eternity is for searching
But a certain dissension grows.
I've seen them wander,
Voices raised in prayer
Consorting in whisper,
They curse the ones not there.

If you didn't want this and I didn't need it,
Then how has this interest become an addiction?
If you didn't want it, then why can't you do without?

I know I'm not your first one,
But I pray I'll be your last.
I've never seen you cry before,
But I know when I make you laugh.
I know and you know, you've heard this all before
These arms are for holding on.
This heart won't stray from home.

If you didn't want this and I didn't need it,
Then how has this interest become an addiction?
If you didn't want it, then why can't you do without?

I know, I know, I know
God tell me, where's my Halo?

If you didn't want this and I didn't need it,
Then how has this interest become an addiction?
If you didn't want it, then why can't you do without?

If you didn't want this and I didn't need it,
Then how has this interest become an addiction?
If you didn't want it, then why can't you do without?

    General CommentThe first 2 verses are bizarre and I've tried fruitlessly to think of a possible interpretation. They seem totally disjointed when compared to the rest of the lyrics, which are relatively straightforward.

    General CommentI heard this song once on VH1 and it got stuck in my head for close to five years until I finally got an mp3 of it. I think it's about something (drugs? sex?) that the singer and the person he's singing to got into, thinking they could easily get out of, but they ended up addicted. I think I remember one of the band members saying that this was the first song that he ever wrote directly about someone.

    General CommentLooking at what @saatwik and @AlmightyChrissy wrote I'm only slightly less confused by this song. I think both are on to something though. It's as though they've both gotten in way over their head with something and as a last result have turned to prayer. Towards the end when he hear's Where's your halo? It's as though he is trying to blame the other for all their problems and is being told you're not perfect, you're as much to blame as she is.
