We all have out secrets some don't site well
Some will turn to white lies just as well
Why can't you come clean and tell the truth?
Come clean

Always watching you watch
You're always right on time

I'm on fire
Will someone put me out?
Reaching for the stars above the clouds
I'm burning
Come clean
Tell the truth

Torched by an angel, the Devils breath

Sop being anxious
This villain is faceless
She follows, she traces
This liquors now tasteless
I can't change this
This lack of breathing will make you sick
Under the knifes where I'll make you slip.
I can't change this I can't change

A selfish hear appears kind
O love. It comes in shades of grey
Its so easy to be used by you.

Sop being anxious
This villain is faceless
She follows, she traces
This liquors now tasteless
I can't change this
This lack of breathing will make you sick
Under the knifes where I'll make you slip.
I can't change this
I can't change

Torched by an angel, the Devils breath

    General CommentThere's missing a part:

    Stop! Listen to words you should have said
    When you can't live without that person
    That got inside your head.

    General CommentThe first line should say "sit" not site...
    Anyway, I think it's pretty clear that this song is about dishonesty...and I think it's probably safe to assume that the speaker was/is dealing with someone who can't be completely truthful, which, at one point, the speaker took very personally--and obsessed over this fact, fearing that they were somehow responsible for this behavior & hoped if they could just get close enough to this individual, they may no longer feel the need to lie...but he is slowly coming to realize that the problem is rooted deep within the other person, existing long before they met, and changing this may be far beyond is own abilities ("reaching for the stars" symbolizing expecting too much).
    I think he is fed up & just waiting to catch her in another lie so that he can finally let go & move on ("Under the knifes where I'll make you slip").
    In the line "This lack of breathing will make you sick" the lack of breathing is all the truths that go unsaid, and the sickness, in this case, would be guilt, shame, confusion, etc. He says she has "devils breath" because most of what comes out of her mouth are lies & deception, fueled by ill intentions.

    My favorite line is definitely
    "A selfish heart appears kind
    O love. It comes in shades of grey
    Its so easy to be used by you."

    It's not something most people acknoweledge--most would generalize selfishness as something mainly manifested thru rudeness, but I have observed thru my own experiences that, selfish people tend to manipulate others into giving them/helping them to get what they want with kindess. They say whatever they feel is necessary to get them from point A to point B, regardless of the emotional or financial expense to the other person. It's easy for him to be used by her cause she's so good at making him feel like it's worth it--that she deserves it/he owes it to her, and maybe she manipulates him so well that he can't even see when she's using him a lot of the time.

    That's what I got out of the song.
