Heaven tells him there’s an angel
Sent to help him with his pain
But this guilt trip ain’t getting longer, it seems
Let alone all his mistakes

Screams fill this room with laughter
After the bodies all hit the floor
He once believed that he needed, he wanted
But he don’t want an angel anymore … he said

Walk on by me
Walk on down the road
Walk on by me
But before you go, I’d like you to know
Heaven sent you too damn slow

Sitting on his porch head in hands
He knows damn well he’s lost his torch
Long ago a young child, once sweet and mild
Now it seems that father’s got bad intentions, he’s got infections
And the day comes, he won’t go home again … he said

- Chorus -

If it burns hurt into your mind, well I guess I’m doing just fine!
If it burns hurt into your eyes, well I guess I’m doing just fine!

- Chorus -
