of angels and angles lyrics – the decemberists

there are angels in your angles
there’s a low moon caught in your tangles
there’s a ticking at the sill
there’s a purr of a pigeon to break the still of day

as on we go drowning
down we go away
and darling, we go a-drowning
down we go away
away

there’s a tough word on your crossword
there’s a bed bug nipping a finger
there’s a swallow, there’s a calm
here’s a hand to lay on your open palm today

as on we go drowning
down we go away
and darling, we go a-drowning
down we go away
away

there are angels in your angles
there’s a low moon caught in your tangles
