    Lyrics

    So many songs about angels
    It seems God makes 'em with his hands
    So I guess this mess of falling angels
    Must fit his immortal plans
    How every flower should open
    How every crippled bird should fly
    And a cry of love from the deepest darkest oceans
    Flies up through his brightest broken skies

    I can't point no fingers
    You can't do nothing more to me
    See here's my broken hammer
    (Can't play my A flat)
    But I'm still playin' in that key

    And in the holy saint's asylum
    There's this patron for lost souls
    Who've perjured grail for money
    Mammon's kingdom and his power
    All is painted glory
    Oh yeah glory holds a key

    But here's this broken hammer (can't fix this old piano)
    Seems sometimes you can't get enough of me hurting
    As the hammer hits the key

    But if God could make them angels
    With only mud and dust and sand
    Making blood from living water
    Man, I think I'd understand

    He'd be in every flower that opens
    He'd be the first new breath of spring
    In the bird song high in the skies sailing clear across
    the oceans
    Some hear his voice in every bell that rings

    They say it's God who made the angels
    From infinity and sand
    But if Heaven made the angels
    Who in hell made man?
    If God could make angels
    If God could make angels
    Why in hell make man?
