An angel wrapped in a blanket,
tucked away in the back of a car seat.
And although it felt precious at the time, it was mean.
So now I'm purposely starving,
waiting for that dreadful phone just to ring.
And until it does just that, I won't do a thing.

God has played a mean joke on me,
and now he's snickering behind some tree
along with all of those other lovers I treated so poorly.

Our love lives patiently await
for the mind and body just to agree.
They bicker, act very coarsely, and misquote me.

And now I'm covered in cob webs,
dust collecting from my head to my feet.
Someone better shake up these bones before it smothers me.

    General CommentI really like this song.
    I think he's found this girl he really loves and cares about but because of his past actions and treating his ex partners so bad "God has played a mean joke" on him and she's left.

    General Commenti honestly think this song is about how he has done horrible things to girls in the past. and how he sees all relationships in his eyes of his past.
    all he wants is someone to come into his life and change his view on it and change his attitude on treating girls badly.
    god is playing a joke by not letting him meet the one girl who could actually mean something.
