Shove It Off On The Angels

Story Behind The Song

Shove it Off on the Angels (©10/10 Words and music by Mike Tucker and Jeffry Swertfeger) [CHORUS] Shove it off on the angels. Push it off on the angels These burdens laid before their feet. Shove it off on the angels. I only hope that the angels Find it in their hearts to deliver me. [VERSE 1] So find yourself a cozy spot. Somewhere you can call your own. Forsaken and broken down, Find a place you can hide. Somewhere between the dark and light. Somewhere between the day and night. Confused by what is wrong or right, We blindly choose our sides. [CHORUS] Shove it off on the angels. Push it off on the angels These burdens laid before their feet. Shove it off on the angels. I only hope that the angels Find it in their hearts to deliver me. [VERSE 2] We gather up our dirty lies We share our needles and our bedroom eyes. The dirty laundry that we just can't hide And bring those lies to sell. But in the end we're only broken down. Alone and bleeding in this cut-throat town. Another nightmare with a scary clown. Your world is going to hell. [HALF CHORUS] Shove it off on the angels. Push it off on the angels These burdens laid before their feet. [BRIDGE] They say that power is the ultimate high. Love is something you can damn sure buy If only...an hour at a time. [HIGH CHORUS X2]

Lyrics

Shove it O ff on the Angels
(©10/10 Words and music by Mike Tucker and Jeffry Swertfeger)

[CHORUS]
Shove it off on the angels.
Push it off on the angels
These burdens laid before their feet.

Shove it off on the angels.
I only hope that the angels
Find it in their hearts to deliver me.

[VERSE 1]
So find yourself a cozy spot.
Somewhere you can call your own.
Forsaken and broken down,
Find a place you can hide.

Somewhere between the dark and light.
Somewhere between the day and night.
Confused by what is wrong or right,
We blindly choose our sides.

[CHORUS]
Shove it off on the angels.
Push it off on the angels
These burdens laid before their feet.

Shove it off on the angels.
I only hope that the angels
Find it in their hearts to deliver me.

[VERSE 2]
We gather up our dirty lies
We share our needles and our bedroom eyes.
The dirty laundry that we just can't hide
And bring those lies to sell.


But in the end we're only broken down.
Alone and bleeding in this cut-throat town.
Another nightmare with a scary clown.
Your world is going to hell.

[HALF CHORUS]
Shove it off on the angels.
Push it off on the angels
These burdens laid before their feet.

[BRIDGE]
They say that power is the ultimate high.
Love is something you can damn sure buy
If only...an hour at a time.

[HIGH CHORUS X2]
