Sunny Day Real Estate – Killed By An Angel lyrics

(verse 1)
Welcome to the lonesome world of abel
Where every brother's knife is set to slay you
And paranoia keeps you healthy
Crooked deals can make you wealthy
Serum vials to help you when you're sad
Every other face is bent and broken
Wrap your teeth around the only game in town
Made your clothes from insulation
Break your day for pay and ration

Killed by an angel
Lost inside amazing colors
It's never how you feel
It comes in a bottle
Lets say you found a gun
How would your bad side burn?
It's never how you feel
It comes in a bottle.

(verse 2)
Relax and all these whores will lick the membrane

Just a touch, a stain, a hole in your brain
It's cold when you remove the nails
Beg for more when all else fails
Serum vials to help you when you're sad


The way the sea reflects the sun, long gone
And all the miracles of love, long gone
You hold your heart out in your hand
One last long sigh gone
One last long sigh gone

(verse 3)
When you see the sores you can't believe them
Pathogenic lovers in the basement cell
Dirty white sheets cut up in strips
Cracks in the mirror and your mind slips
Serum vials to help you when you're sad


Killed by an angel
Killed by an angel
