The Angels' Share

This song is by Ted Leo and the Pharmacists and appears on the album Shake the Sheets (2004).

Oh, lonely day, oh, led astray, oh, burden on the land
Oh, always same, oh, nothing changed, oh, urge to bite the hand
Withholding on your promise to the air
Will only lead to something bad, I swear you can't escape, escape the angels' share

Down again, it seems a losing fight
Yet down again, I sit and try to write
An open letter to a president
Or melodies to help a girl pay rent, we saved and saved only to find them spent

When oh, the long road leads me to your door
Feed me food and heal my health and offer me your floor
There you'll find me lying in the morn
If I don't wake, you've got to let me go on, let me go on my way

'Cause on and on, the tides will surely come
And sure enough, they'll leave again as one
But you and I, we will or won't be here
And sure enough, the angels take their share, but where, I'm not so sure I think it's fair

I'm not so sure I think they care
