Baroness Lyrics


"Cold-Blooded Angels"

Cold-blooded angels in blankets of ash
Alone in the southern pass
There’s a place in the garden
Where nothing will grow
But I could stay forever

Where I lay every night on a forest floor
Asleep with both eyes open
‘Cause I need that bitter hand
It struck me blind
To keep my eyes from closing

Pale as a rose, all the shadow it throws
Over earth and sky
If the rocks in my pocket
Were cinder in stone
I’d owe it all to nothing

Wasted years on an empty road
Where flies buzz around my head
Now I miss the bitter hand
That cut me down
All the way to nothing

Wasted years on an empty road
Where flies buzz around my head
If the dust in my pocket
Were silver or gold
I’d spend it all on nothing

There’s something waiting at the door
I hear it breathing
Follow even though I’m sure
I should be leaving

There’s something waiting at the door
I see it bleeding
Every time I ask for more
I can’t believe it

All I knew was hanging ’round the door
I’m not sleeping anymore
‘Cause I remember every single word
Every little thing I can’t forget

Cold-blooded angels
Stop staring at the sky
We all pay a terrible price
When we learn to fly

And if I could forget you
Oh, how hard I tried
Please, somebody tell me
How the hell did I survive?
