Oh Lord, where are the angels of the murderers?
Oh Lord, were their manners intended for the love of grief?

Oh, we don't know.

Oh Love, where are the voices of the troubled minds?
Oh Love, were their manners intended for the love of crime?

Oh, we don't know.

You heard the frown of the highway
It took all of your fear to give me back away

Yes, you gave me everything
And I gave you all the love
Yet, you threw me aside

Where in the world can I find myself another angel?
Oh where in the world, I ask myself in hopes of answer

We don't know.

    General CommentAn ode to sinners. His perspective reflects on his likewise fate. It appears that he has killed his former lover. Unbeknownst where his angels were, and whether he will ever have another.

    "You heard the frown of the highway"
    The highway represents the path his life was on. The "frown" shows that it was not a good one.
    "It took all of your fear to give me back away"
    His lover did not like the path he was going, and left him. Because she left him, he murdered her. He is an angel-less sinner.
