--- LYRICS ---

What do you do when you wake up one day
And the word you know ends right before your eyes
Everything that made sense before
Is gone away and you can’t even cry

Can’t dig in the rubble or save a single soul
Trapped in the sky or in the fire below
The hole in my heart is too big to measure
And this agony feels like it’ll live forever

Three thousand angels born in an hour
Dark clouds above the flames and paper rain
Can’t figure it out, even though we were in it
Didn’t know them at all
but I think they’re a part of me

A city creams and mourns its fallen pillars
Sea of anger wants more blood to spill
Well I’m not sure that’ll do all that much good, now
What becomes of victims who are turned to kill

Three thousand angels born in an hour
Dark clouds above the flames and paper rain
Can’t figure it out, even though we were in it
Didn’t know them at all
but I think they’re a part of me

Don’t try to explain it all away
Don’t tell me tomorrow will be a new day
Some mysteries don’t have an answer why
Like where the smoke goes when it leaves the sky

Sit here and look into my eyes
I don’t care anymore what’s the truth
and what were lies
I don’t need the man behind the podium today
Just take my hand and
tell me that you’ll stay with me, oh
Stay with me
Stay with me, oh

Three thousand angels born in an hour
Confusion rage and pain is all we feel
Couldn’t figure it out,
even though we were right there in it
I didn’t know them at all, but now I see
Now I see
Now I see
Now I see
