​The Angels Have Sung

This song is by 8 Days And Waiting.

Intake, the image of mother stealing from the cradle at dawn,
She cries can't you see I would paint the sea, can't you see
Can't you see can't you see can't you see
The scabs she's worn all these years, cling to her like flecks of gold
In the night she whispers softly, in the rain I've found a home.

Whoa oh can't you hear the angels sing?

A faded shawl is pulled as loosely as the years across her skin
I hear the whispers of the fading ones come look and see come look and see
The stains of razors gouging wounds, the broken mirrors, she's left at home
I stare at her so honestly, in the flood you're not all alone.

Whoa can't you hear the angels sing?

We will stand all amazed while our mothers are maimed
We will stand all amazed we will stand all amazed
Tonight I'll see that they are not alone.

Whoa can't you hear the angels sing?

Down set heaven skies
We watch the sin of travesty
Can't you hear, can't you hear
Can't you hear the angels sing?
