CALLING ALL ANGELS

Santa Maria, Santa Teresa, Santa Anna, Santa Susannah

Santa Cecilia, Santa Copelia, Santa Domenica, Mary Angelica

Frater Achad, Frater Pietro, Julianus, Petronilla

Santa, Santos, Miroslaw, Vladimir

and all the rest

Oh, a man is placed upon the steps, a baby cries

and high above you can hear

the church bells start to ring

and as the heaviness, oh the heaviness, the body settles in

somewhere you can hear a mother sing

then it’s one foot then the other

as you step out onto the road of hope

step out on that road

how much weight? how much?

then it’s how long? and how far?

and how many times oh, before it’s too late?

calling all angels calling all angels

walk me through this one

don’t leave me alone

calling all angels calling all angels

we’re tryin’ and we’re hopin’

but we’re not sure how…

ah, and every day you gaze upon the sunset

with such love and intensity

why it’s ah, it’s almost as

if you could only crack the code

then you’d finally understand what this all means

ah, but if you could…do you think you would

trade in all, all the pain and suffering?

ah, but then you’d miss

the beauty of the light upon this earth

and the sweetness of the leaving

calling all angels calling all angels

walk me through this one

don’t leave me alone

calling all angels calling all angels

we’re tryin’ and we’re hopin’

but we’re not sure…

calling all angels calling all angels

walk me through this one

don’t leave me alone

calling all angels calling all angels

we’re tryin’ we’re hopin’

we’re hurtin’ we’re lovin’

we’re cryin’ we’re callin’

cause we’re not sure how this goes
