Lyrics

Angel in the Back

I’ve got an angel in the back where the devil used to be
I was blind and now I see
I’ve got a rhythm in my heart, just aching to be free
They say read the gospel that it holds the key

I wrote his initials side the school house wall
Just thirteen I thought I knew it all
As I finished, I was caught
I’d just painted the arrow through the heart

We are living in the afterlife of times before
Standing at the threshold of some future door
Little bit further but not to far
Commit to ourselves, let’s be who we are

There is a hunger for knowledge; it’s a feast of thought
Shows us who we are and who we are not
We conform in disguise and follow the laws
When no one is watching we live in the raw.

We are living in the afterlife of times before
Standing at the threshold of some future door
Little bit further but not to far
Commit to ourselves, let’s be who we are
Commit to ourselves…….

We travel the world, we spin and we weave
We’ve got so much to give so much more life to lead
So we drive the carriage right into the sea
And when no one is watching we take our leave

Right into the afterlife of times before
Standing at the threshold of some future door
Little bit further but not to far
Commit to ourselves, let’s be who we are

I’ve got an angel in the back where the devil used to be
