I see the black angels coming for me
great dark vultures up over the trees and
should I run, their fiery love will
burn my body away

Look there's a golden heart down in the mud
though once mine I can't see it at all there's
something wrong, all color's gone
my mind is slipping away

And the world is shades of gray

My limbs are shaking with wrath and with pain
the spirit jumped ship but the vessel remains
a lonely ghost floats for the coast
just to drown in the bay

And the world is shades of gray

In the anguish, in the despair
I'd stand with open arms
for some savior
savior to come

but my heart breaks
breaks with my bones
and that's all that I've got
so I lay down and die cursing God

And the world, it fades from gray, and then is gone
