rusty angels lyrics – black sabbath

they say you came from heaven but i know that’s not the truth
’cause i don’t think an angel could look anything like you
your eyes are made from sapphires and your heart is made from stone
you gotta be the closest thing to hate i’ve ever known

and if i didn’t know better, i’d say you had come alone
to the party, oh yeah

the light is always shining, but you swear that it’s gone black
the tide is always turning, but you’re never coming back
if i didn’t know better i’d say times were pretty bad

because rusty angels they can’t fly
rusty angels gonna die
rusty angels they can’t fly
rusty angels gonna die, gonna die

the gifts you bring are fire and your dreams they turned to dust
your flying days are over and your wings have turned to rust
if i didn’t know better, i’d say all you had is lost

because rusty angels they can’t fly
rusty angels gonna die
rusty angels they can’t fly
rusty angels gonna die, gonna die

if you swallow just a little pride, you might find a little love inside
open up and let somebody in ’cause if you need somebody
you know it’s not a sin

rusty angels they can’t fly
rusty angels gonna die, yeah
rusty angels they can’t fly, no
rusty angels gonna die
gonna die, yeah, you can’t fly, oh no
gonna die, oh yeah, you can’t fly, oh no
