Destroying Angels

The day was nearly over
They were hosing down the house
They caught sight of her poor body
In the rushes and the mud
 
She lay where she had fallen
They had hunted high and low
The winter had come early
And she had been covered up by snow
 
It took an hour to cut her
From the spot where she was found
A bright red velvet ribbon
Was tangled in her gown
 
Her skin was icy white
Her veins were thin and blue
There was black ink on her fingers
And blood on her toes and her shoes
 
Bees made honey upon her lips
Lips I've waited so long to kiss
She seemed so pure without a doubt
'Til the last red drop bled out
 
Destroying angels
I knew you so well
Destroying angels
No lies will you tell
No lies will you tell
 
Some things they are so painful
No words for them exist
And everyone was solemn
As they laid her in the dirt
 
I stood trembling by her graveside
With everybody else
My sins and all my secrets burn
Like [?] inside my chest
 
I could tell you that I loved you more
Than I ever loved myself
I could swear I'd never harm a hair
Upon her lovely head
 
But I stole her savage beauty
She will never lie again
I stuffed her full of death caps
And it killed my angel dead
 
Bees made honey upon her lips
Lips I've waited so long to kiss
She seemed so pure without a doubt
'Til the last red drop bled out
 
Destroying angels
I knew you so well
Destroying angels
No lies will you tell
No lies will you tell
 
Destroying angels
I knew you so well
Destroying angels
No lies will you tell
No lies will you tell
 
No more lies
No more lies
No more lies
