If every angel's terrible
Then why do you welcome them
If every angel's terrible
Then why do you welcome them
If every angel's terrible
Then why do you welcome them
You say, you'll provide the birdbath
If I provide the skin
And bathing in the moonlight
I'm to tremble like a kitten

If blue eyed babes
Raised as Hitler's little brides and sons
They got angelic tendencies
Like some boys tend to act like queens
If every angel's terrible
Then why do you watch her sleep
You love to hear her sing
And wear purple eyes like rings
Well the flowers have no scent
And the child's been miscarried

If every angel's terrible
Then why do you welcome them
If every angel's terrible
Then why do you welcome them
If every angel's terrible
Then why do you welcome them
You say, you'll provide the birdbath
If I provide the skin
And bathing in the moonling
I'm to tremble like a kitten

Oh every angel's terrible
Said freud and rilke all the same
Rimbaud never paid them no mind
But jimmi morrison had his elevators
His elevators
He had his elevator angels

And if every angel's terrible
Why do you hide inside her
Like a child in a skirt
The supermarket's loud and bright
And boy don't she feel warm tonight
Boy don't she feel warm tonight
Boy don't she feel warm tonight?

(She sounded like an angel when she cried)

If every angel's terrible
Then why do you welcome them
If every angel's terrible
Then why do you welcome them
If every angel's terrible why do you welcome them
You say, You'll provide the birdbath
If I provide the skin
She sounded like an angel when she cried.

    General CommentYou say you'll provide the birdbath
    If I provide the skin
    And bathing in the moonlight
    I'm to tremble like a kitten

    I first thought that this was a description of a man asking the narrator to bathe in front of him so that he can watch and objectify her while she trembles from the cold. I didn't know "birdbath" was slang for washing your genitals (Slynge), so it seems that could be an equally likely explanation.
