Welcome me to the city of angels
Devil prophet still hold my hand
I walk your stillborn streets for hours
Ethnic echoes spitting out their trials

To say that I, I'll be the first to praise the sun
The first to praise the moon
The first to hold the lone coyote
And the last to set it free

Welcome me to a haven given
It's well received into my open arms
I ran in my sleep through the shaken tremors
Felt the splitting earth echoing in my ears

To say that I, I'll be the first to praise the sun
The first to praise the moon
The first to hold the lone coyote
And the last to set it free

Welcome me to the city of angels
There's a devil monkey riding my back
Where's the heart, where the bullet for breaking
Somebody give me a weapon, a pacifying weapon

To say that I, I'll be the first to praise the sun
The first to praise the moon
The first to hold the lone coyote
And the last to set it free

I, I'll be the first to praise the sun
The first to praise the moon
The first to hold the lone coyote
And the last to set it free

Welcome me to your city of angels
