Better Angels

Album: Christmastide (2020)
  • Oh, what a year to be here
    On this little rock, third from the sun
    And we need some mercy

    Lighting a way from south to north
    Voices raised under old starry host
    A flame for change grows

    These burning
    These burning ashes in my mouth
    Heaven, help us
    Out of this never-ending spell
    Our better angels
    I see, see me

    One way out, only one way
    Out of this
    Unfreeze those wings that you treat
    In your chrysalis

    Blazing east to the west
    Watched by his light to give us hope
    A flame for change grows

    These burning
    These burning ashes in my mouth
    Heaven, help us
    Heaven, help us, help us
    Save us
    Our better angels
    I see, see me

    One way out, only one way
    Out of this
    Unfreeze those wings that you treat
    In your chrysalis
