Better Angels

from Music From Big Yella by The Riffbrokers



your better angels
are keeping you from having any fun
you cant play the angles
your focus groups and agents
fool no one

a bell fades a colder
wind of distant use and lost reward
you've been wired into this
desire you can no longer afford

when are you gonna gain access?
when are you gonna come clean?
when does the opportunity door fly open?

that old man may need you
the facts have moved to 34th and Spring
a covert operation
at his age might be just the bell to ring


from Music From Big Yella, track released April 30, 2010
Nick Millward- vocals, acoustic guitar, organ
John Troutman- harmonica, ac. guitar
Scott Sutherland- bass, drums, groans, whoops.
