Somebody tell me how to get to Saint Maria
She has something gonna save my soul
She gives it to me, she don't care what I done wrong
As the sun begins to set, I know that can't make it on my own

No longer grounded, I retreat to my demise
I'm running strong with these lovesick eyes
And the voodoo that you bring is chasing me through my dreams
You got me looking over my shoulder all day long
This ain't a love song, this is a car crash and they're playing my song

So don't come looking for me, I ain't the one you want and I won't be around
To see how you get along when you don't get what you want
Little child your eyes broke all your pretty things inside
She got something gonna save my soul
She's got black angels to carry me away, so take me away

    General CommentSaint Maria represents something the singer is chasing after and longing for...could be a girl or a goal or a dream or even drugs. His journey after this entity has made him loose confidence in himself ("As the sun begins to set, I know that can't make it on my own"). He is so obsessed with it he feels like it is torturing him ("And the voodoo that you bring is chasing me through my dreams You got me looking over my shoulder all day long")

    But soon he realizes that he doesn't need this entity, because the entity isn't as great as it sounds. All that glitters is not gold.

    "She's got black angels to carry me away, so take me away" refers to how its damaging to him, and that he wants it all to end, since it seems inevitable at this point.
