"Angelstrike!" as written by and James Morrison....
Outside a cathedral near the axis of evil they march
Their picket line forming the shape of a proscenium arch
They switched off their halos and started working to rule

All the cold-blooded killers had the keys to the city today
They came for our children and nobody stood in their way
I turned on the TV to see what the world had to say

A spokesman for the angels read a list of demands to the press
While a schoolboy took a bus ride with explosives gaffer-taped to his chest
No kissing, no hugging, no tender and loving caress

The management, the unions and the mediators sat down for talks
The bus bomb exploded as the fairies came out in support
The newspapers headlined the story in bold black and white

Angelstrike, angelstrike
There's no-one to check you
To guard or protect you tonight

Ignoring the curfew, the looters and rioters ran
Through the biggest electrical power cut since records began
All the music we heard sounded flat, and the words didn't scan

On the day that the heavenly choir never sang
Churches available for hire, but the bells never rang
No weddings, no christenings, no birthdays, no discos nor bands

All the paedophiles walked from the chatrooms out onto the streets
Where God-fearing rednecks with scissors cut holes into sheets
The day of celestial action could go on for weeks

More burning and looting, raping, shooting
Earthquakes and hurricanes, pestilence and plague

Angelstrike, angelstrike
There's no one to check you
To guard or protect you tonight

The fire brigade won't come and rescue your cat from a tree
The lifeboat men never came back, they were all lost at sea
The angels are just making a stand for you and for me

All huddled around a fire in a can
With a flask of hot sugary tea

Angelstrike, angelstrike
There's no one to check you
To guard or protect you tonight
