angels\’ wings are icing over
\”\’Cause he\’s always living back in Dixon – circa 1949 – And we\’re all sitting at the fountain, at the five and dime. \’Cause he\’s living in some B-movie The lines they are so clearly drawn. In black and white life is so easy And we\’re all coming along on this one.
\’Cause he\’s on a secret mission, Headquarters just radioed in, He left his baby at the dancehall While the band plays on some sweet song. And on a mission over China The lady opens up her arms – The flowers bloom where you haved placed them And the lady smiles, just like mom. Angels\’ wings are icing over McDonnell-Douglas olive drab, They bear the names of our sweethearts, And the captain smiles, as we crash. \’Cause in the mind of Ronald Reagan Wheels they turn and gears they grind, Buildings collapse in slow motion And trains collide, everything is fine…\” David Lowery: rhythm guitar, vocals; Victor Krummenacher: bass; Greg Lisher: guitar; Chris Pedersen: drums.
