no one can break, my crystal wings, i take off when the white bird sings. i fly, when people say these things, my feathers are, shadow rings. people die, people cry, but why? i have crystal wings, but why do i try? i am death, but i am alive, i jump off a cliff, and take the dive. i dont want to live, i just want to strive, angels cry, when i arrive. im floating through the air, not using my wings, but i dont care, im on a red cloud, covered in a shroud, my wings are black, did i say that out loud? i make her cry, and make him proud, i close my mouth but my screams are loud. i work for him, and jump off the cloud, then the lights go dim. i jump and fly, i broke the rim, im a banished angel, that wears a hat without a brim. you think you can win? the chances are slim. but that doesnt change, my crystalized wings, i take off to the sky, with the dongs and the screams.
