"Blue Angel" as written by James Mathus and Kenneth Edward Mosher....
Your momma never told you
How you were 'sposed to treat a girl.
Your poppa never told you and
Now you're all alone out in the world.
Sirens are streaming
Inside the winding sheets are pale.
Devils are dreaming
Dreaming of the blue angel.

Now I lay me down to sleep
But troubled dreams are all I find.
Pray the Lord my soul to keep
Pray so I won't lose my mind.

Sirens are screaming
On wings tonight, I'll soon set sail.
Devils are dreaming
Dreaming of a blue angel.

Your momma's going to take it hard
You always were your momma's boy.
Your laying in the graveyard
Now you're not your momma's joy.

Streetlights come streaming
I'll bat an eye and cast my spell.
Devils are dreaming
Dreaming of a blue angel.

    General CommentThis is a sticky sweet song. By that I mean the sound, not the lyrics. The lyrics make you stop and think about what it's like to be a devil.

    General CommentShe's obviously singing to a dead person, who I suppose is her lover or husband or whatever. I'm thinking she probably killed him (because he doesn't know how to treat a girl), and is about to kill herself as well. This explains, for example, the sirens screaming and setting sail tonight. I think that the singer is the Blue Angel of whom the devils dream.

    General CommentIt's like a film noir plot. I love how she messes with Christian imagery and a prayer to tell a story of sin.

    General CommentGood comment on the film noir-ness of the song. I find at actually has some parellels with "Der Blaue Engel" (The Blue Angel), an old German flick. I can't say that it's based on it, but I can't say it's not, either...

    General CommentThis is such a fantastic song. Very dark. I always feel so stupid trying to describe why I like what music pulls me in. I wind up sounding dumb or insane but goddamn I miss this band and this style!
