Asked if I would try
To leave this all behind
Halo round his head
Feathers in a bed
In our bed, in our bed

from Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Sacrilege Lyrics on Rap Genius


The inclusion of “Asked if I would try, to leave this all behind” presents the sacrilegiousness of leaving this Angel behind. Thus placing Karen in a moral pickle of sorts and presents a Socratic contemplation:

“Is it less pious to sin with an Angel or to reject this marvelous creature?”
