City Of Angel Lyrics

City Of Angel by 10000 Maniacs  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


City Of Angel Heaven, is this heaven?
Heaven, is this heaven?
Heaven, is this heaven, where we are?

See them walking, if you dare, or,
If you call that walking...
Stumble, stagger, fall and drag themselves along the streets,
of heaven.

Where is the blessed table to feed all who hunger on earth?
Welcomed and seated, each one joyfully served.
See them walking, if you dare, or,
If you call that walking...
Stumble, stagger, fall and drag themselves along the streets,
of heaven.

Where is the halo that should glow 'round your face?
And where are the wings that should grow from your shoulder blades,
Show them to me!
Sobering sights I've seen, in the City of Angels,
Have all been one rude awakening that was due to me,
In heaven...

There would have been heavenly music, I was convinced before.
A host of the dearly to meet me, with Hosannas sung at the door,
But these are sobering sights I've seen, in the City of Angels,
Have all been one rude awakening, that was due to me in heaven.
In this city of fallen angels!
