Dressed like angels, just off the medicine show
With track marks, painting such a pretty blue
Last one in line for the healing of woes
I can see the faces looking pretty grim
Ambience foretold and now this stone is caving from within
Our simplicity, lost or whatever the cost, you better start running
Ambience foretold and now this stone is caving from within
Our simplicity, lost or whatever the cost, you better start running
Whores with halos, wishing for wings
Your children yearning for their disease
Give us that potion to make everything right
Feel the healing spiking my veins tonight
Give us that potion to make everything right
Feel the healing spiking my veins tonight
You want the pack, we're blazing through
Run for the hills, run for the hills, the south's gonna take you
Whores with halos, wishing for wings
Your children yearning for their disease
Smoke liftin, my mark, on the street
Hell's comin, watch the followers meet

    General CommentTo me, it seems like Dallas is telling how bad the world is today.

    The first line of the song basically says that these girls are dressed up trying to look good. Unfortunatly, "good" these days means sexy. So all of these girls on MTV and VH1, how many of them do you actually see all covered up? Our little girls are seeing that and thinking, "wow, that's cool" so they want to be just like them.

    Song Meaning'Whores with halos, wishing for wings.
    Children yearning for this disease"

    Definitely sounds like drugs to me, I mean, look at the impact drugs have on today's youth.

    "Smoke lifting, my mark, on the street.
    Hell's coming, watch the followers meet."

    Smoke lifting-smoking. Maybe weed. Obvious.
    On the street-it's where you get drugs.
    Hell's coming-there are consequences.
    Watch the followers meet-they're following a drug. I mean, how many people do drugs alone? It's usually with others.
