lyrics

Blowing opiate smoke from your pouting revolver.
I know you tell me lies, so I do you favor
Your feverish kiss bears a venomous flavor.
Your blood orange lips are coated with sulfur.

Don’t you know why?
I come to fly
Lust angel lust
My angel dust

I could light a matchstick on your sable lipstick.
Smear violent words on your satin mask.
You can trick holy souls into stained heretics.
If you know the means, it’s not your task.

Don’t you know why?
I come to fly
Lust angel lust
My angel dust
Don’t you know why?
I come to fly
Lust angel lust
My angel dust

If the bull comes back for more, don’t mean you’re the matador.
You might hold the bait, but you can’t keep it straight.
No use building your spider web round my zodiac,
You’re unaware my heart is a pyromaniac.

Don’t you know why?
I come to fly
Lust angel lust
My angel dust
Don’t you know why?
I come to fly
Lust angel lust
My angel dust
Don’t you know why?
Don’t you know why?
