lyrics

BEFORE THE ANGELS CALL

VERSE I
Don't we all want to take to the sky?
But I don't want to fly with ravens, no more.
My desires to go higher and high.
Shaded by blackbirds and weighted with a head stone.
On the stone are the words inscribed
It says here another sucker lies.
the road was wide and he took the ride,
and got lost in the fog of pride.

I believed I could self redeem,
be m my own god and my own king.
But I started to see, I was in slavery, reaping and sewing only misery.
It doesn't matter if you're wealthy or in poverty.
None are immune to being empty.
The rich can't buy it. The poor can't steal it.
The proud would deny it, as angels reveal it.

PRE-CHORUS
Some demand the proof,
and then reject the truth,
our own ways leave us incomplete
I once was Blind but now I see

CHORUS
And it feels like my wings are growing.
I love life. I want my heaven while I'm here.
I'll fly away-fly away before the angels call for me.
(It's Your love that sets me free.)

VERSE II
The path is narrow but His arms are wide
Who walked upon the Earth, sea, and sky
Some aren't accepting of His sacrifice; to them it only means giving up their lives
They're desires to be gratified, seem satisfied, with vice and pride.
Over and over to themselves they lie. If you're gonna chase a ghost,
Then I know the One to try.

REPEAT PRE-CHORUS, and CHORUS
SUB-CHORUS

Excuse me while I kiss the sky,
and fly away.
(I'm gone)

REPEAT CHORUS and SUB-CHORUS
