[Verse: Algernon]
You can’t see no angels
Cuz the clouds reflecting back
All the lights that’s shining up
Give the city that cold mask

Like Doom, we’re doomed
The end will be coming soon
And now I’m stopping to think
Of all the shit I just couldn’t do

You’re lost when your caught up in it
I coulda been another statistic
Woulda labeled me as a victim
But it’s the condition of the system

That we’re living, were given
From the course of a future vision
From a bunch of politicians
With revolution as their mission

See we are just a product
A purchase and we’re caught up
In the gears of the years
In a time that’s finally caught us
It’s locked up, or starving
Or shot up and forgotten
Tossed aside like a broken product
If you ain’t moving then you boxed in

A coffin for you to lay in
A promise for you to pray in
But if they’re lying to your face
Then you believe and they’re betraying

We’re the soldiers in their battle
But they only see us as cattle

To break a fragile spirit
Break its back underneath your saddle
They promised us the angels
When they set us out to pasture
But they set us up for slaughter
And we didn’t know til after

We heard the fallens tears
We turned our eyes to the sky
But the sky wouldn’t shine no light
And another young angel died

[Hook]
Cuz we can’t see them out here
So we’re not breathing out here
Desperation in the eyes of the millions left behind
Left to fall left to die cuz they never taught us how to fly
Cuz we can’t see them out here
So we’re not breathing out here
Desperation fear the only feelings that persevere
No more breathing stopped believing cuz no angels come out here in the city
