  • Crayon Angel songs are slightly out of tune
    But I'm sure I'm not to blame
    Nothing's happened, but I think it will soon
    So I sit here waiting for God and a train
    To the Astral plane

    Magic rings I made have turned my finger green,
    And my mystic roses died
    Guess reality is not as it seems
    So I sit here hoping for truth, and a ride
    To the other side

    Phony prophets stole the only light I knew
    And the darkness softly screamed
    Holy visions disappeared from my view,
    But the angels come back and laugh in my dreamsâ?¦
    I wonder what it meansâ?¦ Writer/s: JUDEE SILL
