lyrics

Did you miss the taste of sugar on your tongue
All of the times that you refused it
No you were thinking of a starving soldier boy
With a life so small that he might lose it
And were you ever even kissed
Or would that fruit upon your lip bruise it
You said you knew the difference between a stomach and a soul
But you confused it
For a hungry angel

I know a story 'bout a girl who was tied to a stake
And then they burned it
You know that you were just like her
Except you lit that match yourself when you should have spurned it
And did you know that you deserved
All the love in the cruel world
Oh how you earned it
You couldn't stand the thought of someone else's pain
And so you took it and turned it
Into a hungry angel

If apathy is a crime
You'd have been arrested for the way you treated yourself
And as for that bloody boy up on the cross
What does he really care for us
He should of told you that you could have loved yourself
As much as those you cared about
As much as those who took the place of a hungry angel
