‘Disbelieving Angel’ is a song written by Kate Bush. It was recorded as a demo, presumably in 1976. The song has never been released officially, but it did end up on various bootlegs.
The demo appears on the bootleg 7″ single ‘Cathy Demos Volume Four’ and various bootleg CD’s.
So much for all the prayers you’ve learned
They are no help to basic needs
And all the worlds they’ve shown you
Just make you even greedier
So what about divinity?
I’m further away than before
You’re like two stars colliding
And you’re never going to hit the floor
Why should I whisper in the church?
Because they say it’s sacred ground?
Oh, my sacrilege would do you good
You see, there’s nothing here, I’ve found
I feel so sorry for you
Believing because they control
And of all the guardian angels
They chose me to save your soul!
Oh, I’m just trying to explain,
I’m a disbelieving angel
