Angels all with dirty faces
Made to die here on the street
Tear apart her holy fountain
Take away her will to live
Staring at the faded picture
All her dead friends' pretty faces
She's waiting for the answer
It's getting later, it's getting later

She's like movement
From ashes to shadow
We take our wounds from angels
Ashes to shadow

Give her fire and give her water
Burn it in a silver spoon
Still waiting for the answer
Forty pounds for a bag of gold
She plays with this great addiction
Praying for an overdose
Paralyzed and falling out
If she breaks it could break us all

She's like movement
From ashes to shadow
We take our wounds from angels
Ashes to shadow
We are moving
From ashes to shadow
She takes her wounds from angels
Ashes to shadow

Angels all with dirty faces
Made to die here on the street
Tear apart her holy fountain
Take away her will to live
She plays with this great addiction
Praying for an overdose
Paralyzed and falling out
If she breaks it could break us all

She's like movement
From ashes to shadow
We take our wounds from angels
Ashes to shadow
We are moving
From ashes to shadow
She takes her wounds from angels
Ashes to shadow

    General CommentIt seems to be about one person's heroin use; how it's affected her and how it's affected those around her.
