  • Farewell Angelina, the bells of the crown
    I've been stolen by bandits, I must follow the sound
    The triangle tingles, and the trumpets play slow
    Farewell, Angelina, the sky's on fire and I must go

    There's no need for anger, there's no need for blame
    There's nothing to prove, everything's still the same
    Just a table that's empty by the edge of the sea
    Farewell, Angelina the sky is trembling, and I must leave

    The Jacks and the queens have forsaken the courtyard
    2 gypsies now fight passed the guards
    In a space where the dukes and the ace once ran wild
    Farewell, Angelina, the sky is folding I'll see you in a while

    See the cross-eyed pirates sitting crossed in the sun
    Shooting 10 cans with a sort-of shot-gun
    And the neighbors they claW and they cheer with each blast
    Farewell, Angelina, the sky's changing colors and I must leave fast

    Hang calm, little elves on the roof tops they dance
    Valentino-type tangos while they make-up man's hands
    Shu the eye of the dead, not to embarrass anyone
    Farewell, Angelina, the sky's embarrassed and I must be gone

    The machine guns are roaring, the prophecy rocks
    Avenge nailing time-bombs to the hands of the flock
    Call me any name you like, I will never deny
    Farewell, Angelina, the sky's erupting, I must go where it's quiet
    Farewell, Angelina, the sky is on fire and now I must go
