Fallen Angel And The Catherine Wheel

from by The Rogue State Circus



A dark song about obsession.


Words and Music by JAG Delaney (c)2009

Verse 1
The Dust never settled,
This unease I still feel
I still think of the Fallen Angel,
tied to the Catherine Wheel
They say you outgrow it
Your past the you that was
I only wish that I could know it
for sure, for real, no doubts

Fallen Angel and The Catherine Wheel
She raised your hopes just to make you kneel
Before the image you developed in your head
Killed your soul stone dead

Time is fleeting, nothing’s changed
As this feeling still remains
Should you go to greater pains
On The Catherine Wheel
you’ll break your brittle heart

Verse 2
Most treasure is buried
But her lips were never sealed….
I still dream of the Fallen Angel
Tied to the Catherine Wheel
Now the secret is open
You should hang your head in shame
No Future in hoping
these days will never change

Chorus and Bridge as above
