Monks Of Doom – The Better Angels Of Our Nature lyrics

The surgeon was at the table
With his hands on a rusty saw
The better angels of our nature were standing there in awe

The sculptor danced with his statue
And caressing the flaws in the bronze
The patient reached out her hand and said
"this incision seems rather long"

Well then the mood of the moment grew heavy
As the pendulum pushed against gears
Serenity can track you down in a second
And cheat you out of your best years

I don't know why you wanted
To check out oh so swiftly
When the road just comes so quickly
To the end

Your friends were holding a vigil
That you'd come back to them in one piece
But the better angels of our nature could do nothing to lessen their grief

I am the thousand winds that blow
I am the diamond glint on snow
When you awaken in the morning hush
I am the swift uplifting rush

Quiet birds in circled flight
I am the dark star that shines at night
I am the fly that climbs on walls
I am the rattle in the halls

I know you had no intention
Of leaving me so swiftly
But the road just came so quickly
To the end
