Hot Tuna – Angel of Darkness lyrics

[Verse 1]
What kind of evil, baby, I don't want to know
Would poison pure waters, just when they begin to flow
Nothing we did, baby, and nothing we said,
Could call up the demon that danced inside your head

[Chorus]
Innocent light, trapped in the night
Angel of darkness
You've got it wrong, you don't belong
On the cold streets you roam
Sweet runaway, there's no debt to pay
Angel of Darkness
Find your star, that's who you are, and follow it home

[Verse 2]
When you were a child, baby, you were lost in the wild
With no one to save you, no shelter for your style
Those sworn to protect you, baby, they've brokered your pain
They nurtured neglect, girl, and left you standing in the rain

[Chorus]
Innocent light, trapped in the night
Angel of darkness
You've got it wrong, you don't belong
On the cold streets you roam
Sweet runaway, there's no debt to pay
Angel of Darkness
Find your star, that's who you are, and follow it home

[Bridge]
Your fate's in your hand, darling,
So face it with pride
The color of night
Will shade to the light
You're looking at an angel's ride

[Chorus]
Innocent light, trapped in the night
Angel of darkness
You've got it wrong, you don't belong
On the cold streets you roam
Sweet runaway, there's no debt to pay
Angel of Darkness
Find your star, that's who you are, and follow it home

[Outro]
Find your star, that's who you are, and follow it home
Find your star, that's who you are, and follow it home

    Dark is light in this girl's world, since her family and friends suppress her abilities with their conditioned expectations of who she should be. Now, she can follow her star and be free of their control. As many, who turn from those they trust to the unknown, she rebelled and showed the opposite side to what she had always experienced, instinctively, which was no better than following her family and friends conditioned superimposed ideas of her. But now she is balancing it out, "shade to the light" and will follow her own star, her own course.
