Crooked smile

Reaction late

Innocent angel dust

The focus of my hate

You're no friend

Stabbing backs like they're players

On your chessboard of pretend

I saw through your tangled web

Before it had been spun

You've nothing now to hide behind

I'll unravel you undone

So don't approach me smiling

Don't pretend that I don't care

Because I'm sure you're ready to fight

I'll meet you halfway there

I was here long before you

Established in words of stone

With a slight of hand I could send you reeling

Leave you all alone

I'm no better than you are

Not claiming royalty or rank

But my judgments and words are sharp

Also very, very frank

So generally, they're heeded

And I could warn them all

One by one they'd slip from your hands

And slowly down you'd fall

But I don't for one reason

I think you need us, you do

A broken little angel

We provide protection for you

So though I'm not here to befriend you

Never think of it that way

I'm standing here to shelter you

From the loneliness for today

Crooked smile

Reaction late

Innocent angel dust

The focus of my hate

You're no friend

Stabbing backs like they're players

On your chessboard of pretend
