This is the speed I fly.
I'm all alone and that you know.
The angels walk below me,
Slicing metal by remote control.
(Slicing metal by remote control)

Wings are sending black smoke to cover
Up my eyes like a sympathetic strangle.
But I will never die.
But I will never die.

Am I here to watch over you?
Am I here to destroy you?
Am I here just to think it matters what I do?

I can never really be,
Yet I don't mind if I do.
Take the pennies from my eyes,
I am so old that I am new.

I'm an indifferent slayer.
For sure you should try prayer.
That'll keep you occupied
While I do what I decide.

I can never really be,
Yet I don't mind if I do.
Take the pennies from my eyes,
Let me kiss the friends I knew.

Watch the burning embers.
Hand are in the holes
and still they love each other.
I can't remember anything!

I can never really be,
Yet I don't mind if I do.
Take the pennies from my eyes,
Let me kiss the friends I knew.

There was a little soldier
hung up in her own mind.
See her body flying over
To look for her own kind.

I can never really be,
Yet I don't mind if I do.
Take the pennies from my eyes,
I am so old that I am new.

Am I here to watch over you?
Am I here to destroy you?
Am I here just to think it matters what I do?

I can never really be,
Yet I don't mind if I do.
Take the pennies from my eyes,
Let me kiss the friends I knew.
