"Lost Angels" (MP3)
Misheard Lyrics:
Gotta get back to the life in the street

Original Lyrics:
Gotta get back to the love in the street
We're lost angels
Gotta choose the way to rock 'n' roll

And I turn in this space to see myself disappear
My understanding by my lyrics is that each of the band members is fighting internally between doing drugs ('life in the street') and finding a better way to rock and roll ('pick and choose'). The classic examples are the two keys to The Sweet's sound - Brian Connolly's fighting (literally) against alcohol vs Andy Scott's cleaner living.

With my knees all weak from your lightning streak
Like a Sunday flash, supersonic crash
The Episcopal Priest knock ya head over heels

I'd like to thank https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wzJJU-yGkEk that features Steve Priest's vocals alone (he in fact carries the song) that allowed me to transcribe correct lyrics for the first time (unlike other sites), although it does sound like he sings 'knees all weep' rather than 'knees all weak'. Maybe from kneeling in awe of the Rebel Rouser, lol.
