lyrics

She stood in a furnace of fire - hell
Where the coals burn like rubies from toe to head
When to stops and stares into his eyes
She falls to her knees and begins to cry

So he cracks all his fingers
Begins all his work
As he leaves her behind wraps his wounds up in bandages
All of her friends say don't trust this guy
She only listens to him only listens to him

Stone cold, his house is not a home
He makes time stand still every time she's gone
And one by one they all come and go
When she gets home she sits in his thrown

And he makes her believe that it's her fault he's wrong
And he makes her believe it's something that she's done
And she screams out his name again
He never gave a damn cos it's all just a game

And she snaps snaps snaps at his beck and call
And she never ever wants it to stop
With a conscience clean and a guilty stream
Of people she don't ever wanna believe

And she wants him to save her
But when bullet proof is like a lead balloon
There has never been a way to get through to you

And he cracks cracks cracks til the vessels pop
As he holds her head down until the lungs give up
As the skirt lifts up on the table top
All he ever wants to do is to stop

And he wants her to save her
And as he holds her close
As her body smokes
All he ever wants to do is to leave

about

Talk To Angels Bradford, UK

The debut album “This Broken Home” explicitly tackles the depths of human suffering with an unfailing bravery. Ironically, it is this insight into the black that gives this album its phenomenal colour - Overground Sound.

The heartache is evident, the laments are thorough, lonesome and passionate. Talk To Angels are an entirely new band with astonishing potential - Crack In The Road.
