"Angel Down" as written by and Nadir Khayat Stefani Germanotta....
I confess I am lost
In the age of the social
On our knees, take a test
To be lovin' and grateful

Shots were fired on the street
By the church where we used to meet
Angel down, angel down
But the people just stood around

I'm a believer, it's a trial
Foolish and weaker, oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel now
I'm a believer, it's chaos
Where are our leaders?
Oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down

Doesn't everyone belong
In the arms of the sacred
Why do we pretend we're wrong?
Has our young courage faded?

Shots were fired on the street
By the church where we used to meet
Angel down, angel down
Why do people just stand around?

I'm a believer, it's a trial
Foolish and weaker, oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down
I'm a believer, it's chaos
Where are our leaders?
Oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
I'm a believer, it's a trial
Foolish and weaker, oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel down
Oh, I'm a believer, it's chaos
Where are our leaders?
Oh, oh, oh
I'd rather save an angel now

Save that angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel
See that angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel
Hear that angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel
See that angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel
Hear that angel
Catch my angel

    My InterpretationShe's talking about how everyone, including herself is lost in social media and the need to be popular. "I confess I am lost In the age of the social" Shes saying that although we are lost in the media there is still a test to be kind and loving and most people say that they are kind and loving, but when a tragic event happens "Shots were fired on the street
    By the church where we used to meet"
    People just use the event for their well being and benefit instead of sympathizing for families that are affected. The media uses peoples tragedies for money and popularity. Like corporate greed. Her perspective is from someone who had just lost a loved one and she's watching how the people and the media react. The angel down could also mean "fallen angel" and in biblical terms it means someone who gives in to temptation. Maybe this "angel" gave into drugs or fame and let it kill her. And maybe she/he is famous and that could factor in to why the media is taking advantage of tragedies.I don't know. Tell me what you think.
