"Furious Angels" as written by and Rob Dougan....
Like a sentence of Death
I've got no options left
I've got nothing to show now
I'm down on the ground, I've got seconds to live
And you can't go now
'Cause love, like an invisible bullet,
Shot me down and I'm bleeding
Yeah I'm bleeding

And if you go furious angels will bring you back to me
Will bring you back to me

You're a dirty needle
You're in my blood and there's no curin' me
Yeah
And I want to run, like the blood from a wound
To place you can't see me
'Cause love, like a blow to the head,
Has left me stunned and I'm bleeding
Yeah, I'm bleeding

And if you go furious angels will bring you back to me
Yeah,

You're a cold piece of steel between my ribs
And there's no saving me
Yeah
And I can't get up
From this wet crimson bed that you made for me
That you made for me
'Cause love, like a knife in the back
Cut me down and I'm bleeding
Yeah I'm bleeding

And if you go, Angels will run to defend me
To defend me
'Cause I can't get up

I'm as cold as a stone, I can feel the life fade from me
Yeah
I'm down on the ground, I've got seconds to live
And what's there that waits for me?
Oh, that waits for me
'Cause love, like a sentence of death's left me stunned
And I'm reeling, yeah I'm reeling

And if you go furious angels will bring you back to me

    General CommentI think Rob Dougan tries to describe the intensity of a love in powerful, clear and graphic words. Since most people know pain, but few such great dedication, he uses the known to illustrate the unknown. A Love, uncompromising like a fatal wound, protected by supernatural forces - an unbreakable inseparable alliance.

    General CommentThis sounds to me like the type of anguish you get when the one you love breaks all her promises to you, one day simply up and dumping you (for lack of a better phrase). He's in love with her, she means everythign to him, but she just shattered his heart. It broke him. He feels like he's jsut been stabbed and all the life is draining out of him. He's rapidly losing the strength to go on. And yet, he still loves her. And it's conflicting with the rage in his blackened heart, tearing at his soul, screaming to take her down with him.
    But that's jsut me :)

    General CommentThis is one of the most intense and powerful songs I've ever heard.

    He's singing of the extreme emotions associated with love, and his feelings for someone.

    However, I also believe that he deeply possesses this person, and won't allow them to leave him. It's a dark song, like all of Rob's work. Not a happy story at all. Obsession and compulsion best describe his feelings in this song.

    General CommentThis song is extremely well written. It feels as though (whether or not this is true, but I'm betting 99% on "yes") R.D. thought every single word out. The parallelism and the repeated graphics simlies and metaphors create such vivid imagery that whether or not you can relate to the song, you feel like you're there. And the music fits the words *perfectly*

    General CommentI think it's a story about love where the other is doing wrong by him, rather than him by the other, as Claidheambmor suggested before me (well, possessing and controlling the other). That's why the angels would defend him, and be furious.

    General Commentanyone notice that the music is extremely simliar to clubbed to death? either way, i think this song's about love, and it's ups and downs, sometimes he wishes he could get away from her, other times he doesn't want her to leave. he feels the bond is so strong, even if one of them wantedto split. heaven itself wouldn't allow it. this song has a definite sense of menace to it. i love it. kinda funny how this song became the matrix theme music....

    General CommentI just descovered this guy and I must say I AM BLOWN AWAY! I LOVE his music!I am a big soundtrack buff and this is the perfect blend between a movie score and electronia. I'm crazy about the beats and his voice is amazing. I can't believe I never knew about Rob Dougan untill yesterday. I'm getting his Furious Angels album as fast a possible.
