I knock the telephone from the table
And the room starts to purr.
I splash the contents from a drawer.
A photo, mid-air, stops to twirl - it falls.

Why do you always cry when you come to see me?
I always die to see you smile.
You see, I’ve got a secret.
That’s why I always smile.

Yes I know the window’s dirty,
And I’ve noticed that all the plants are dead.
Why don’t you ever hear a single word I say?
I’ve been trying to tell you: She’s on her way.

Angel!

I want to introduce you to someone you’ve never met before.
As you can see, she’s very special to me.
She stretches the skin of her silvery wings,
Puts her hands through the bars to me.

She steps through the wall
As if it’s a door
And I rise from the floor
As I did before.

I knock the phone from the table
And the room starts to purr.
I smash the contents from a drawer.
A photo starts twirling.

It’s the Angel,
It’s the Angel.
It’s the Angel and me.

I push the blade into your eye,
I break the bars,
Watch you cry,
I set myself free.

It’s the Angel,
It’s the Angel.
It’s the Angel and me.

I run to the wind,
I run to the river,
There’s blood on me,
It’s your memory.

It’s the smile of.
It’s the smile of.
It’s the smile of.
Insanity.

You fall to the floor as my fist hits your jaw
But I don’t cry.
I don’t cry.
I don’t care.

Get your hands off me.
Get your hands off me.
Get your hands off me,
Can’t you see?

She’s come for me.

It’s the Angel,
It’s the Angel.
It’s the Angel and me.

It’s the Angel,
It’s the Angel.
It’s the Angel and me.

It’s the Angel,
It’s the Angel.
It’s the Angel and me.

    General CommentInsanity seems to be a frequent topic in Toyah songs. A lot of it probably stems from her childhood experiences, including intensive therapy for several physical disabilities, speech therapy and dyslexia. The song 'Creepy Room' particularly refers to this part of her childhood.

    In this case, she appears to be speaking with the voice of an asylum inmate who can't understand why others can't see her 'angel', and who eventually resorts to violence and (apparently) murder, and briefly makes her escape. As she's recapture, she seems to revert to a fugue state of some kind, and imagines herself safe with the angel.
