It's Walmart, the bathroom
I'm staring in the mirror
Fluorescent lights are bright
It makes the lines clearer
Where did the Angel go
Cigarette smoke's all that's left
Traded in my wings in for a string of pearls
And the string is all I've left

The light bulbs burst
And someone's in the stall
Big white
Brick wall
Makes me feel small
And I take my shirt off
Looking for a glimpse of flesh
Peel back the concrete
Hope there's something natural left

Cuz I am fading
I am fading
I am fading away
I am fading
Just like fairy tales
When the hero loses faith
I am fading

The air smells like urine
It's getting hard to breathe
I could walk out that door
But no one ever really leaves
And I take my clothing off
Trying not to forget
Stupid things like the color of rain
And the smell of stone when it's wet

I am fading
I am fading
I am, I'm fading away
I am fading
Just like fairy tales
When the hero loses faith

And I am naked in the mirror
With a feather in my hand
The lady comes out of the bathroom
Screaming, "Oh, Jesus!"
She couldn't understand
Well I ask her,
"Hey, what happens to us
When we get old and in the way?"
I guess she answered me cuz they
They took me away

And I am fading
I am fading
I am fading away
I am fading
Just like fairy tales when the hero loses faith
And I don't know how
And I don't know when
Don't know when I forgot, hope I remember again
I am fading away
I am fading
