"Angel's Wings" as written by and Jon Wickersham Michael Ness....
You say you're down on your luck
hey baby, its a long, long way up
hold back now, hold back your fears
you say you're really down and out
and you feel like there's no way out now
let go now let go of your tears some more

How many times have you asked yourself
is this the hand of fate that I've been dealt?
you're so disillusioned this can't be real
and you can't stand now the way you feel

I don't care about what they say
I won't live or die that way
tired of figuring out things on my own
angel's wings won't you carry me home

[Chorus:]
You say you're down on your luck
hey baby, its a long, long way up
hold back now, hold back your fears
and when you're really down and out
and you feel like there's no way out now
let go now let go of your tears some more

[Repeat Chorus]

I triumphed in the face of adversity
and I became the man I never thought I'd be
and now my biggest challenge, a thing called love
I guess I'm not as tough as I thought I was

I don't care about what they say
I'm gonna marry you some day
go ahead and wake up, its a brand new day
Angel's wings gonna carry you away
Angels wings are going to carry me away
angels wings are going to carry us away

    General CommentWhat I felt from this song is:
    Though you felt like "you're down on your luck" and "you feel like there's no way out now",
    Though you felt like you can't live anymore, you can't take anymore pain, and You can't stand anymore,
    What you are feeling now is what you are feeling now.
    Don't see your future through only what you are feeling now.
    There is a hope. There is a way. There is a future that YOU will make!
    This song really helped me.

    Song MeaningThis song is about feeling helpless. No matter what you do to come out of this rut but it always pulls you back to the same place. Its like something or someone more powerful than you, who is pushing you down and not letting you get up. You have been fighting this monster all of your life and now you are so close to giving up.

    In other words, you have been betrayed by others in the name of love all the time. Each time you thought it was true love but proven wrong later. That should have stopped you from ever loving again but you never could. You are tired of loving and being betrayed over and over.

    But you have still not stopped believing in love. Despite this endeavor being so painful and so fruitless (so far), you have not given up yet. Your hope is still alive and you'd carry on and on and on... until one day, when it will be all over and that angel of love will take you away along.

    General Commenthas anyone heard the live version of this its heaps different nd at the beginning he says "in this contry you need a license to drive and hunt and fish but you need nothing to bring a child into this world" and the other song has a theme of amum drinking and the kids crying waiting for their dad or sumthing like that

    i have no idea why they changed it but im pretty sre they only mde the changes when they recorded it

    General Commentthis is the only band that gives me the chills listening to them ANYSONG at ANY TIME! its like mike ness's voice and the guitar and bass and drums are suposed to be like that... like it was SUPOSED to happen, which i think is why people love Social D so much, i can say i havn't felt this way about a band in so very long... his voice is fuckin amazing. when i listen to this i get the immage of a young Mike in the recording studio or what ever thinking that some day something big is gonna happen to him and no matter what anyone says does or feels its going to happen cause it was ment to happen

    General Commentmike ness is so amazing.
    and I have the live version, which I kind of like the lyrics of a little bit better. They're kind of incoherable at some parts, but I know the first verse is
    "Welfare mother, drink yourself to sleep
    While silently your children weep
    When you coming home dad? I don't know when
    The county's gonna take us away again
    I don't care about what they say
    I ain't gonna die that way
    Welfare mother drink yourself to sleep
    While silently your children weep"


    BOTH versions are freakishly excellent =]
