It seems to me when all was done, that in the end
There was no one who hurt me more than you, my friend.
What hurt me was what you didn't want to see,
It was that you missed the only quality that I've let define me.
That no matter what, I've never let go of my love
Because of that, another angel fell from up above
The angel was me, who were you?
But this I do not know.
An angel is flawless, perfect and true and white and pure.
But I no longer see an angel when I look into a mirror.
I see your hate has made deep scars on my face,
And I wonder how it was I ever came to this place.
When you saw my wings, tattered and torn
When you saw that my soul had grown bitter and worn
I thought you might help me, or at least you would try
But your reluctance and failure served only to make me cry
And when I realized you were done, I whispered good bye
But this you did not hear.
You told the angel why you would not fight
You gave it excuses and lies, trying to make it right
You told the angel how you could not be redeemed; first you had to learn to live
What you forgot is redemption is something that an angel will give
So instead you told stories and lies and tried make it truth
And the angel remembered the pain that had long ago stolen its youth
It remembered the markings, long, angry, red scars carved into her skin
One for me, and for you, and one for each and every sin.
The angel tried to forget you, and instead tried to flee
To run far away, and make you into naught but memory.
I remember it because you know the angel is me.
But hate I did not feel.
When the angel whispered her love into your ear
When the angel tried to again draw you near
You pushed it away and beat it and cut it again
You were the demon, I was still the angel then.
When you realized you'd hurt the angel, that it might die
The angel was saved by thef tears you did cry
The angel survived, wanting only to end your pain
It wiped your tears away, and said it was not Abel and that you were not Cain
But this we did not really believe.
You told the angel you could do better, that you would finally try.
And the angel smiled at you, believing your lies
But instead you spun webs, a giant spider you became
You hunted the angel and tried to make it feel pain.
Your desire to hurt was something that could not be sated
And it is to bear the sins of a human that angel is fated
You saw this and used this, used a pure love to make hate
You burned it and spoiled it, and took away an angels real fate
And when the angel saw what you had done, the angel felt rage
The angel felt a pure sorrow, and quickly built a locked cage
To lock you away, to keep anger in and other emotions out
And finally the angel understood what the demon was about.
The angel tried once more to hold onto its love
But what really is an angel when it's fallen from above?
It's more of a demon than you could ever be
And that fallen angel made a demon, that demon is me.
And hate I finally felt.
The angel was destroyed, the demon now has control
It's becomes just like you, with anger and hate in its soul
The angel lays broken, it lies dead in a burning field
Killed only by the true pain and hatred a mortal can wield
You took an angel, made it where you took out your strife
But now you must see, it was you who ended the angel's life
The demon that rages now in the angels scarred skin
Is there because of something it took you to begin
Because the angel loved you, and you brought it only pain
The angel lied, it was Abel, and you are doomed to be Cain.
If you see the angel's body, where a demon now resides
You must know that I the angel am still somewhere inside
But my soul is now darker, it's bitter and mangled.
But I wonder how yours look now that you have killed an angel.
But this you so easily accept.
The angel was resurrected once when it saw your tears
Because bringing you pain was its greatest fear
The angel gave you nothing but an angel's love
And it was for you that the angel leapt from above.
The angel ran once, its love had been all it could give.
You were right, you had to learn how to love and to live.
But what you always refuse to see
Is that I let my love for you control me
And what you should know is that angel needed you to fight
It needed to know you loved it, to kill off the demon of the night
The angel is now different, a demon with hate
You made it this way, but you have always controlled its fate.
The angel won't fight the demon, because you won't try.
And because the angel never got to tell you good bye.
The angel loved you so much, it was the last words it screamed
And the angel doesn't see how you don't know that you were already redeemed.
An angel's tears fell for you.
But this you refuse to see.
