"When The Angels Fall" as written by Dominic James Miller and Gordon Sumner....
So high above the world tonight
The angels watch us sleeping
And underneath a bridge of stars
We dream in safety's keeping

But perhaps the dream
Is dreaming us
Soaring with the seagulls
Astride the backs of eagles

When the angels fall
Shadows on the wall
In the thunder's call
Something haunts us all

When the angels fall
When the angels fall

Take your father's cross
Gently from the wall
A shadow still remaining
See the churches fall

In mighty arcs of sound
And all that they're containing
Yet all the ragged souls
Of all the ragged men

Looking for their lost homes
Shuffle to the ruins
From the levelled plain
To search among the tombstones

When the angels fall
Shadows on the wall
In the thunder's call
Something haunts us all

When the angels fall
When the angels fall
When the angels fall

These are my feet
These are my hands
These are my children
And this is my demand

Bring down the angels
Cast them from my sight
I never want to see
A million suns at midnight

Your hands are empty
The streets are empty
You can't control us
You can't control us anymore

When the angels fall
When the angels fall
When the angels fall
When the angels fall

When the angels fall
When the angels fall

    General CommentParaphrased poetry

    Song—full of agony—full of sighs.
    Move weeping now and watch that no one sees you as you go.
    Giddap!—you hear him, in his clear voice say.
    My horrid prison rings with my moan—my sighs …
    Is this the pledge you gave to me?

    My lovely beauty, though prey of cruel war
    Cries not for hurt, but weeps to assuage the grief of her lost past liberty.
    In order to capture their darlings, the lovers come armed.
    Surrender, you beautiful things—don’t carry on war.
    But who is flying this way?
    Oh—love’s little angel, it is.
    Love—it is! Laughing—who comes to those who have fallen in love.
    She: Keep me now company.
    I see folk pestilent—that I bear no torment.
    Something or the other drives them from me here.
