when angels fall

when angels fall into the maw of fear
not many know just how the end is set
nor who will in the end express regret
before the fever and the pox appear
we leave the facts to those who engineer
the kinds of meaning that we soon forget
those marks of cadence on the coronet
that tell us what is normal and sincere
aspire to higher glories and you'll fail
to reach even those you ought to master
but the first dropout soon achieves his goal
those things you strike upon the very nail
are not those that you arrive at faster
nor are they ones that you will get to whole
