Ask The Angels

Moooooove! Ask the angels who they're calling, Go ask the angels if they're calling to thee Ask the angels while they're falling Who that person could possibly be And I know you got the feeling, You know, I feel it crawl across the floor And I know it got you reelin' And honey honey the call is for war And it's wild wild wild wild. Everybody got the feelin' You know the feeling and it's stronger each day Everybody wants to be reelin' And baby baby I'll show you the way And I know it's hard sometimes, You got a piece and hit across the sky And I know it's hard sometimes And world war is the battle cry And it's wild wild wild wild Across the country through the fields You know I see it written 'cross the sky People rising from the highway And war war is the battle cry And it's wild wild wild wild. Armageddon, it's gotten No savior jailer can take it from me World ending, it's just beginning And rock and roll is what I'm born to be And it's wild wild wild wild Wild wild wild wild Wild wild wild wild Wild wild wild wild Ask the angels if they're startin' to move Comin' in droves in from LA Ask the angels if they're starting to groove Lightning as armor and it's today It's wild wild wild wild Wild wild wild wild Wild wild wild wild Wild wild wild wild.

Don't turn your back now, I'm talking to you
Should I pursue a path so twisted? Should I crawl defeated and gifted? Should I go the length of a river (The royal, the throne, the cry me a river) Everything I've done, I've done for you Oh I give my life for you. Every move I made I move to you, And I came like a magnet for you now. What about it? You're gonna leave me! What about it? You don't need me! What about it? I can't live without you! What about it? I never doubted you! What about it? What about it? What about it? What about it? Should I pursue a path so twisted? Should I crawl defeated and gifted? Should I go the length of a river, (The royal, the throne, the cry me a river) What about it, what about it, what about it? Oh, I'm pissing in a river.
