Voltaire – Feathery Wings lyrics

You, there on the bridge

Where have you been, what's your name?

And you, there you on the wall
Where will you go to once you fall?

You, lost at sea

Do you need me, do you need directions?

Hey, put down the gun
What are you thinking?

You were someone's son

The taste of tears

The sting of pain

The smell of fear

The sounds of crying

A long, long time ago I fell to this place

From another dimesnion

And thrust amongst the beasts
And they way they behave borders on dementia

Now through all these years

I can barely take it

I don't think I can make it

Take me away from here

I want to go home

I'm so sick and tired of the

The taste of tears
The sting of pain

The smell of fear

The sounds of crying

As you standing at the edge of your life

What do you remember?

Was it all you wanted?

I'm trying to earn a set of feathery wings

I wish I could protect you here

Oh, please don't cry

Now smile as you're standing
At the edge of your life

Your troubles are over

Mine are just beginning

I'm trying to earn a set of feathery wings

To take me away from here
Its me you leave behind

If only I could have been there

I'd be a hand for the sinking
If only I could have been there

I'd be a prayer for the dying

See the pain etched in my face

I'm so sick and tired of

The taste of tears

The sting of pain

The smell of fear

The sounds of crying

As you're standing at the edge of your life

What do you remember was it all you wanted

I'm trying to earn a set of feathery wings
I wish I could protect you here

Oh, please don't cry

Now smile as you're standing

At the edge of your life

Your troubles are over

Mine are just beginning

I'm trying to earn a set of feathery wings

To take me away from here

Its me you leave

You're gone from here
Don't leave from here

Don't leave me here

I hate it here
You're gone from here

Don't leave me here

I need you here
I need to see you smile

He wants to make up for what he's done, helping people, wanting to protect people. He wabts to 'earn a set of feathery wings' ie become an angel. He wants to become an angel, and go to heaven, and help everyone like the angel because he's sick and tired of death and pain. " -
