Verse: (w/rhy. Fig. 1) Bm7 Bm7/A Bm7/G Bm7 Bm7/A Bm7/G 1. Your mother's child. But night lays you down. Bm7 Bm7/A Bm7/G Bm7 Bm7/A Bm7/G Hair a-flame, wild look in your eyes. Naked belly to the ground. Bm7 Bm7/A Bm7/G Bm7 Bm7/A Bm7/G A forest fire nibbles at your veins, Bm7 Bm7/A Bm7/G Bm7 Bm7/A Bm7/G Crawls up your arm runs away with your mind and burns dry thoughts like leaves.

verse 2: Eyes stare up, but something's in the way. In the Bible, only angels have wings And the rest must wait to be saved. A dry tounge screams at the sky But the wind just breathes words in As a strange bird tries to fly. (to chorus:) Verse 3: Pieces of us die everyday As though our flesh were hell. Such an injustice, as children we were told That from God we fell. Whare are my angels? Where's my golden one? Where is my hope now that my heroes have gone? Some are being beaten, some are being born. And some can't tell the difference anymore. (to chorus:)
