Lonely angel - *Loneliness know my name* (jap caption)

"Ice crystals form from flakes of heaven
Fall down weightless to the earth
To them it's worth the falling
Through atmospheres a-dawning
And open arms a-calling
To collect and protect all the raining
Insane from above
The lonely angel dust
The only angel does¡­(by LAURA VEIRS)"
