I saw you today
She's lovely you're such a heavenly pair
You hope and you pray
Someday she'll take you all the way there

You should know better, darling (you should know)
When push comes to shove
Angels don't fall in love

You stand at the gate (and there you wait)
Hoping to gain admission
How long are you willing to wait (and wait and wait)
She won't give permission tonight

You should know better, darling (you should know)
When push comes to shove
Angels don't fall in love, no no no

You've got your higher aims
Got your ambitions
You think you're spiritual
And on some mission

Well, I can see it
When I look in your eyes
When you think of love
You think of compromise

It's no big disgrace
There's no loss of grace
The trouble is there's always
Someone there to take your place

And the trouble is
You don't believe that it's true
When the sun goes down
There's something left for you

The trouble is
I see you missing so much (trouble is)
While you're knocking on all the wrong doors (trouble is)
Looking for some angel's touch (trouble is)

You think she's (trouble is)
Everything you're dreaming of (trouble is)
The trouble is (trouble is)
Those angels never fall in love (trouble is)

(Trouble is trouble is)
(Trouble is trouble is)

    The singer is telling a guy that the woman he wants doesn't really want him. He's too consumed by lust to see how much that the woman doesn't love him. That woman is also probably using him.

So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
