I knew this day was coming.
It was no surprise to me.
Like the sound of distant drumming
From a band you can’t yet see:
A cruel delegation,
With revenge on every mind.
I made my preparation.
In just one way, I was blind.

One more fallen angel
Is falling out of time.
We beat the odds together:
Two bastards in our prime.
I taught you well.
I tried to tell
You all that they’d have planned.
But I never expected
The lightning in your hand.

We started by the lake shore,
In the old days, you and me:
Delinquent fools with nothing more
Than guts and loyalty.
A bullet ain’t the worst way
Guys like us come to an end;
So watch your back, ’cause from today
You’re all alone, my friend.

One more fallen angel
Is falling out of time.
We beat the odds together:
Two bastards in our prime.
I taught you well.
I tried to tell
You all that they’d have planned.
But I never expected
The lightning in your hand.

Caroline will take this hard.
You help her come around.
You owe that much in my regard
For putting me in the ground.
We lost our only baby, Claire,
Gone to Heaven since aught-one.
I don’t suppose I’ll pass by there.
Don’t forget to ditch the gun.

One more fallen angel
Is falling out of time.
We beat the odds together:
Two bastards in our prime.
I taught you well.
I tried to tell
You all that they’d have planned.
But I never expected
The lightning in your hand.
