"Sweet Worlds of Angels" as written by and Gordon Gano....
I think that I would like to
stroll down a street or two
Stop by some places that I know
and see what's become of me
Stay close and comfort
The winds that tear em up
Now, they're breezing out to pasture
and I'm breezing in and out
Flow, let it flow
It's just so mellow under my pillow
It's just so mellow I'm surrounded by pillows
Don't feel afraid
I'm a little out of sleep
Just me come to call
With my frozen teeth and melted lips
I will come and run to meet the sun
when my songs for the morning
and then I will smile upon you
with my peace and my yearning
Flow, let if flow
It's just so mellow under my pillow
It's just so mellow I'm surrounded by pillows
The sun was yellow
Beneath the streaming through the trees
Clouds are great pillows
Floating so grandly above the trees
Why is everybody so hollow
So I kill everything
Sweet worlds of angels
Sweet worlds of angels
Sweet worlds of angels
Some never never never die die
Sweet worlds of angels
Some never never never die die
Sweet worlds of angels
Some never never never die die
Beautiful angels
Don't ever leave me behind
Your all too perfuming of my life
I think that I would like to
stroll down a street or two
Stop by some places that I know
and see what's become of me

    General CommentThe Viva Wisconsin version is definitive - and great.

    This is probably about a cocaine or crack relapse. The singer goes back to 'some places that I know' and gets high to see if its still the same. Then the song switches to the 3rd person.

    The 'winds that tear him up' are painful thoughts that 'breeze out to pasture' under the influence of the drugs, while they 'stay close and comfort' the singer.

    He is high, flowing, mellow. he never wants to leave this artificıal heaven.

    Cocaine and/or crack are suggested by: 'a little out of sleep', 'frozen teeth' (the numbing effects of coke), and 'melted lıps' (a hot crack pıpe can serıously burn your lips). he knows he looks like shit, but doesn't care - he feels great, peace and yearning. For now.

    The next lines give more bliss images, plus the reason for the relapse: the straight world is full of shit, and he will sacrifice it all (kill everything) to get away from the 'hollow'.

    Again, the sweet worlds of angels are the blissful realms of the high. Which is eternal, if you keep going back for more. Or, at least, you wish it was. And you don't want to live without it. 'Your altar perfuming up my life'.

    Ends with the intention to relapse again. One of the better relapse songs, lıke Bılly Idol's White Wedding. This is why we do it.
