Lyrics in the middle of the night
And with a wink
And a smile
You toss your instructions on
How to catch a train
While it's moving
You always were the one
That kept us all guessing
How you could survive
The fall you had

From medicine men
To my dj friends
They all have said
"He's got to watch his back"

They're trapping angels
By the potomac
But it's not how you think
You'd be surprised
They liberate
Your dreamscape
Till you can't remember
To recall
Where your wings
Have gone
Tell me where they've gone

From Jordan to Chicago
Another child is born
Trusting that we'll get it
Right this time
I should've worn my glasses
You said just to trust
Then you chose
To sign the dotted line

From modern magdalenes
To my dj friends
They all have said
"He's got to watch his back"

They're trapping angels
By the potomac
But it's not how you think
You'd be surprised
They liberate
Your dreamscape
Till you can't remember
To recall
Where your wings
Have gone

Before I close my eyes at night
I can still see you smilin'
Before the truth was
Buried alive
Did we prize it
Before you change the world
Maybe boy you should change
Your girl

They're trapping angels
By the potomac
They're trapping angels
Lord I know this
They're trapping angels
By the potomac
But we're getting closer
I said we're getting closer
To where they've gone
Tell me where they've gone

Now it won't be long

2. Cool.
I'm glad I'm not the only insomniac. :hi:

Who recorded that song? I've never heard it, but it looks like it might be good.

3. It's Tori Amos....
Great song.

Well it was either that or "Slight Mechanical Destruction" by Iain M. Banks.... I decided on the least painful one.....
