Your supposed to be Angels

After she was taken
To you I plead and pray
But did you really listen
To what I had to say

You've left her in a cold land
Small child still so afraid
You've tied my hands together
Won't let me save the day

Your supposed to be Angels
Protecting innocence
But you've left her with the devil
So you can keep you wings

Don't think you wings will save you
If all my fears come true
I fly into the heavens
And this is what I'll do

I cut your wings from your back
As I look into your eyes

Screaming out my child's name

As you fall from the sky
