  • Tears of joy at the birth of a brother
    Never alone from that time
    Sixteen Years through knife fights and danger
    Strangely why his life not mine

    West side skyline crying
    Fallen angel dying
    Risk a life to make a dime

    Lifetimes spent on the streets of a city
    Make us the people we are
    Switchblade stings in one tenth of a moment
    Better get back to the car

    Fallen angel
    Fallen angel

    Fallen angel
    Fallen angel

    West side skyline
    Crying for an angel dying
    Life expiring in the city

    Snow white side streets of cold New York City
    Stained with his blood it all went wrong
    Sick and tired blue wicked and wild
    God only knows for how long

    Fallen angel
