I see two angels as I climb my way on up the balcony
And I jump right away for fear they'll catch a glimpse of me
And bathe me in their light and light up all the things I say and do
Swine before pearls, imagine all the things I never knew

The traffic lights they go out of sync
The buildings on main street forget their own names
After breathing the air the angels turn grey and take jobs at the gas station

Games in the arcade
Don't save the high score
Now who has been here, who has been here
Before

Now the games in the arcade
Don't save the high score
Now here has been here, who has been here
Before, before

She stands in a phone booth
Lets her fingers do the walking out
All things they work in unison
But she has trouble telling how
She tries to justify the means
But can't help wondering where the ending goes
Better map a chat with God
A silver cloud, a golden ratio

The dial tone, it hums her name
Cracks in the sidewalk are just dumbfounded smiles
All this derails and the tracks out of town are empty, silent and rusted

The games in the arcade
Don't save the high score
Oh, who has been here, who has been here
Before

Now the games in the arcade
Don't save the high score
Ah, who has been here, who has been here
Before, before, before
Before
