Hold it together
Birds of a feather
Nothing but lies and crooked wings
I have the answer
Spreading the cancer
You are the faith inside me
No, Don't, leave me to die here
Help me survive here, alone
Don't Remember!
Remember!

Put me to sleep, Evil Angel
Open your wings, Evil Angel (Ahhh)

I'm a believer
Nothing could be worse
All these imaginary friends
Hiding betrayal
Driving the nail
Hoping to find a savior
No, don't, leave me to die here
Help me survive here, alone
Don't Surrender!
Surrender!

Put me to sleep, Evil Angel
Open your wings, Evil Angel (oohh)
Fly over me, Evil Angel
Why can't I breathe, Evil Angel

Put me to sleep, Evil Angel
Open your wings, Evil Angel (oohh)
Fly over me, Evil Angel
Why can't I breathe, Evil Angel

    This is about a person who is doubting a lot in their life and finally finds one person who can help them through it, but that person isn't exactly perfect.

    This song, to me, is a song about being decieved in your time of need, like the first verse was saying that hes been following this person all his life but hes slowly starting to realize that this person is full of deciet, like an anti-Christ type person. But hes to attached to let go because right now that person's all hes got. The second verse is after he finds out this person is full of lies and he gets pierced in the heart because of all the pretenders, but now, after hes on the verge of breaking down completely, he prays to find a true savior, somebody whocan actually take him out of this misery, so he promises not to give up till he does (Don't Surrender! Surrender!) And the chours I think is tieing the whole relationship with the "Evil Angel" together, asking it face-toface if its a complete lie

    Anyway regardless of what Ben was thinking when he came up with this, all of his songs are true and deep and I think he will be known as one of the best songwriters of all time

    it sounds to me like he wants god to accept him but at the same time he is angry that he was forgotten by god

    I think that this song is probably about a guy who is sick of facing his demons like people pretending to be his friends when they're not and backstabbers and he's being driven way past his breaking point. Then on day he meets a person who although is also facing faceing his/her [though most probably her] own demons, he believes that she can help him through everything. And his 'saviour' was trying to help him but after a while she/he began having doubts. And he's singing for him/her not to give up and help him.

    i think that this song is about finding that one person who helps you through all the crap in life, helps you breathe, live, and survive
