This song is about how the persona feels admiration for a person so perfect in her eyes, referring to him/her as an angel, but slowly realises that the angel has its flaws as well, and all the empty promises he/she made to the persona were all but empty promises - words with no action, a lie.
The angel broke her heart, and emphasizes on how it could have gone on for ever if she had not realised.
I think the video is lateral represenatation to the meaning of the song because it was redempation in death. However, I believe this is can be extrapolated to all kinds of disillusionment. One can say this is What Have You Done Now? Twin, but meaner, viler and more predatory. A person that has a flair, a sense of charm or chrisma, maybe status in society, power, wealth use obfuscation to achieve his ambitions. She realizes the person or institution is a hollow lie that lacks the promise that osentesibly offered in the first place. In this failure, she rejects as she sees the methods employed, or being personally wounded herself. It becomes dog eat dog world. Angel could easily be penace or proponents here mete out justice or punishment. Ted Bundy, or Manson would be good analogue for the villain in this song.
