I need a sign to let me know you're here
All of these lines are being crossed over the atmosphere
I need to know that things are gonna look up
'Cause I feel us drowning in a sea spilled from a cup

When there is no place safe and no safe place to put my head
When you feel the world shake from the words that are said

I need a sign to let me know you're here
'Cause my TV set just keeps it all from being clear
I want a reason for the way things have to be
I need a hand to help build up some kind of hope inside of me

And I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels

When children have to play inside so they don't disappear
And private eyes solve marriage lies cause we don't talk for years
And football teams are kissing Queens
And losing sight of having dreams
In a world that what we want is only what we want until it's ours

I'm calling all angels
I'm calling all you angels

    General Comment:It's just about how our "perfect" world really needs some fixin'.

    "I need a sign to let me know you're here
    'Cause my TV set just keeps it all from being clear"

    Talking of the confusing pseudo-reality created by the possibilities shown in television.

    And, of course: "In a world that what we want is only what we want until it's ours"

    Kind of just showing the greed, the absolute need to have more of today's society.

    The person singing is so lost in such a confused world, that he's "calling all angels", asking the heavens above for help with the problems of today.

    *Wubz this song!* ^_^

    General Comment:It's about how life needs some support from.. well.. heaven. I am not religious but I still like the song. I like the part "I won't give up, if you don't give up."
    A girl in my religion class played this song and related it to God or whatever and that line was important. It's a good song, no matter what you believe. It's about hanging in there and realizing that life is gonna suck but just to hold youself up and find support.

    When my husband was in Iraq, I had no means of communication with him...just the TV and newspapers. Always jumping when there was a knock on the door or the ohone rang, hoping it wasn't "the" call...And I'd cry every night wondering "why, why me, why US??" Looked for answers I couldn't fnd...

    General Comment:This song is talking about how we are kinda spoiled in a sense and how we take things for granit. He is expressing how he feels that the world is almost falling apart and we are losing track of what is important in life.

    General Comment:This is a song about the irony of the society that we've become and calling on something higher to save us from it all. Also, just asking why things have become so messed up.

    General Comment:Rob Hotchkiss didn't even get any input in this song. That's what really pisses me off. If they wouldv'e let Rob come up with his own guitar part, this song would've been a hell of a lot better.
