Bits of lyrics pasted together

These snippets come from the most recent (and most excellent) Iron and Wine album, The Shepard's Dog. The lyrics just caught in my head, and sorta flowed together bits from this song and that. When they are written done they come together nicely enough. Although they are really quite depressing and I probably should try to play less of this and more of something bouncy, and thus steer me away from the start of winter blues. Anyhow:

Every morning there were planes
The shiny blades of pagan angels in our father's skies

Said the plain clothes cop to the Indian chief:
"I've made nothing but an honest mistake"

Here's a prayer for the body buried by the interstate

Big black cloud was low and rolling our way

No one lives forever and the devil never sleeps alone

The daughter of a lawyer told the fallen priest:
"It's a cold, cold place in the arms of a thief"

A boy with a coin he crammed in his jeans
Then making a wish he tossed in the sea

Reaching out to touch the steering wheel she said:
"Leave me alone, but just don't leave me here, alright?"

There is a house by the sea
And an ocean between it and me
