  • I confess I am lost
    In the age of the social
    On our knees, take a test
    To be lovin' and grateful

    Shots were fired on the street
    By the church where we used to meet
    Angel down, angel down
    But the people just stood around

    I'm a believer, it's a trial
    Foolish and weaker, oh, oh, oh
    I'd rather save an angel down
    I'm a believer, it's chaos
    Where are our leaders oh, oh, oh
    I'd rather save an angel down

    Doesn't everyone belong
    In the arms of the sacred
    Why do we pretend we're wrong?
    Has our young courage faded?

    Shots were fired down the street
    By the church where we used to meet
    Angel down, angel down
    Why do people just stand around?

    I'm a believer, it's chaos
    Where are our leaders oh, oh, oh
    I'd rather save an angel down
    I'm a believer, it's a trial
    Foolish and weaker, oh, oh, oh
    I'd rather save an angel down Writer/s: Nadir Khayat, Stefani Germanotta
