​The Cigarette Lighters

This song is by Silkworm and appears on the album Libertine (1994).

If I could see what angels see
I'd [sooner] crack my eyes
(Cataract glaze across the big sky)
If I could go where angels go
(I'd slide across the floor)
[And sneak in like a splinter] under your door

Breaking in the summer sun
[Where they whirred/were they worried] about me

Don't say a word about me

When the summer's done
Don't wait

If I could walk where angels walk
(I'd cut out before the wine)
Get a couple down before I get mine
I could take what angels take
(I'd take it to my back)
Never saw life collapsing like that

(Breaking in the winner's cup)
[Where] they whirl about me
Witness full of self-control
Don't say a word about me

When the summer's done
Don't wait

If I could wear what angels wear
[I'd tear it] limb to limb
[Playing "California"] when she comes in

If I could see what angels see
I'd [sooner] crack my eyes
Cataract [glaze across the big sky]
Were they worred about me
When the summer's done
Don't wait
