Where have all the angels gone?
Where went all the saints?
I knew them once when I was young,
in a world far and faint.
I crossed every t,
each i was dotted sure,
and every day I strove to be,
an angel like they were.
But my saints were only human,
my angels flesh and blood,
and I canonized them ere I knew,
the sins that brought the flood.
Now the pious stand unveiled,
as sinners singing hymns,
and I pray to God I failed,
at emulating them


Angels of Flesh and Blood
