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
