A Mouse And A Snake

The morning is a place for the hopeful

The ones that somehow made it across

The darkest realms of night without getting lost

 

We both were waiting for something to happen

I clenched my fists as anxiety grew

A pistol in your hand, you seemed wary too

 

The silence fell

With such a force

No matter what you have to say

My secret’s darker than yours

It’s always sunny and nice

And there’s a lovely garden

Where his body lies

 

Lookout

There’s a mouse and a snake

Down every mouth

(x4)

 

I see inside your beautiful body

A dwelling place of a hideous soul

Plotting from behind your skin like a wall

 

How charming and naïve your attempts are

To make the fable sound like the truth

When I know every trickery, every ruse

 

See it’s a game

I’ve never lost

No matter if it’s head or tails

No matter the terrible cost

It’s always sunny and nice

And there’s a lovely garden

Where her body lies

 

Lookout

There’s a mouse and a snake

Down every mouth

(x4)

 

There’s no escape

The vile reptile and I

Are so intimately entwined

That even if I laid on the ground and died

It still wouldn’t leave my side

There’s no escape

 

Our secrets bitter and treacherous

Oh so bitter and treacherous

Oh so bitter and treacherous

Ugly and obscene

And even out in the daylight

Even out in the daylight

Even out in the daylight

They remain unseen

And even under the sun

And even under the sun

And even under the sun

They bring grief so immense

No matter how far you look

No matter how far you look

No matter how far you look

You can’t see where it ends

Lookout

There’s a mouse and a snake

Down every mouth

(x4)
