There's a devil outside your window
And it's waiting for a piece of you
And you're just so beaten down
These days there's nothing you can do

While as sure as the sun will shine again
While the night begs for more
Your purgatory waits for you
When you walk outside that door

The dead pass by on the sidewalk
Eyes hollow as they come
I cannot see a sign of life
Where they're going or where they're from

They seem so unaffected by these Streets that flow with pain
There's no love or no hate
And I never want to feel the same

Lay your head down

There's an angel next door in the barroom
Arms open, full of grace
I detect strong spirits there
In my glass I'll find the same

Where the world don't seem so bad
No more when you're basking in her light
For the moment we are all living
While the dead can stay outside

I'm just hooked on the feeling
Of flying on the wings of escape
These neon lights protect me
While reality's kept at bay

And the whole truth just don't matter
When there's angels in your eyes
I feel loved and I feel needed
In a world that's filled with lies

Lay your head down
