Watching Angels Bleed

WATCHING ANGELS BLEED - Written by Carroll Bryant


Take it all away
I don't want to deal with it anymore
Give me something for this pain
It won't stop and I can't fight it

Love
It was all in a dream
In life
I used to believe
And it lived once upon a time 
In a house on a hill off a road I left behind

Too many things stood in my way of what I wanted to achieve 
Time that I could steal, beg for or borrow
And a price so out of my league 
But then I found my strength in a manner I thought was so real
I stood above the clouds in my mind 
And that was my only thrill

I lost my faith, my hopes and my dreams
Turned my back on everyone that meant anything to me
Now I sit here all alone in my own company
Lost in total darkness and watching angels bleed

Once I thought that intelligence existed in some way
In everyone
Later to realize it's wasted and neglected 
Taken for granted to the point that people are so dumb

Inside their vanity lives a secret shame
Numb to the feeling 
They don't even know themselves 
That their tears are white blood
And their ignorance is killing me

Caught up in the game, they don't realize
That their selfishness shows in their eyes 
And to fondle all the meaning of what the truth could mean to them
Is the knife they place into their own backs 
Close our minds and get distracted by some trivial 
And meaningless happenstance of chance known as fate 

I lost my faith, my hopes and my dreams
Turned my back on everyone that meant everything to me
Now I sit here by myself inside my own insanity 
Trapped in complete silence and watching angels bleed

How can I analyze what prosperity means
When I live in poverty 
How can I capitalize on the chances given me
When the world turns its back on me
And then I walk away from all that I ever did believe
Now I sit here with my doubts
And still I don't believe

I lost my faith, my hopes and my dreams
Turned my back on everyone that meant anything to me
Now I sit here all alone waiting for humanity
Blind without a reason and watching angels bleed

Living without leaving and ... watching angels bleed
