White lips, pale face
 Breathing in snowflakes  Burnt lungs, sour taste 

 Lights gone, days end
 Struggling to pay rent
Long nights, strange men

And they say
She's in the class A team
 Stuck in her daydream 
Been this way since eighteen
But lately her face seems  Slowly sinking, wasting  Crumbling like pastries 

And they scream 
The worst things in life come free to us
'Cause we're just under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams
And she don't want to go outside, tonight 
And in a pipe she flies to the motherland 
Or sells love to another man
It's too cold outside 
For angels to fly, for angels to fly

 Ripped gloves, raincoat  Tried to swim and stay afloat 
Dry house, wet clothes 

 Loose change, bank notes 
Weary-eyed, dry throat 
Call girl, no phone 

And they say
She's in the class A team
 Stuck in her daydream 
Been this way since eighteen
But lately her face seems  Slowly sinking, wasting  Crumbling like pastries 

And they scream 
The worst things in life come free to us
'Cause we're just under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams
But she don't want to go outside, tonight 
And in a pipe she flies to the motherland 
Or sells love to another man
Its too cold outside 
For angels to fly
An angel will die
 Covered in white  Closed eye
And hoping for a better life
This time, we'll fade out tonight  Straight down the line

And they say
She's in the class A team
 Stuck in her daydream 
Been this way since eighteen
But lately her face seems  Slowly sinking, wasting  Crumbling like pastries 

They scream 
The worst things in life come free to us
And we're under the upper hand
And go mad for a couple grams
And we don't want to go outside, tonight 
And in the pipe fly to the motherland 
Or sell love to another man
It's too cold outside 
For angels to fly, angels to fly
To fly, fly
For angels to fly, to fly, to fly
 Angels to die
