So what? Your friends all grew up and you thought that you could stay young
You can keep drinking blood, set old pictures on fire but your God's walking truth of immortal desire

And I don't remember it, I can't remember it why I used to give a shit
‘Cause there are things you said and awful things I said that I can't forget

There's a monster inside my mouth who only wants to shut you out
And all the lies that calm him down are breaks in silence that make you proud
Killing angels right, one by one, eating marrow and drinking blood
And though it seems like so much fun, my mouth is itchy from their holy tongues

I can't forgive what I can't forget, I can't remember why we were upset
I'd give it all just to spare the truth, saving grace over drinks for two
The little church right by the park, I thought I saw you there in the dark
Slamming fists on the big old door, you got your health but you wanted more

And I don't remember it, I can't remember it why I used to give a shit
’Cause there are things you said and awful things I said that I can't forget

An angel, a fly trap, the flags wave at half-mast
The church bells, the floor drain, we drink her and then pray

I've never felt so young, I can hear the fires on the sun

I can't forgive what I can't forget, I sleep at night with a thousand regrets
You break my heart every smile you fein, batting lashes, looking young again
Every angel inside your gut aching for your soul to suck
Screaming for their bodies back in your digestive tract

Tempt me, yeah tempt me, I dare you, just tempt me; tempt me pretty baby, you know I'll do it for you
I'll kill another angel for that fountain of youth

We're free from the devil and free from your God
But we're stuck here in limbo forever forgot
And we may look young but our souls still grow old
Tired of stories and books we both wrote and it goes on and on and on and on
On and on and on and on, angels forever will sing this song on and on and on

    General Commentthis song is about killing an angel for eternal youth. in christianity, qeres is a poison used to kill angels. when the blood of the angel is consumed by the killer, they are granted eternal youth at the price of the never ending wrath of god.

    General CommentI feel like a lot of this is the summary of the whole tale, or maybe touches on the back story the most. the rest of the album seems to show the ending scenes of this tortured couples story.
