Snake

I remember back in the day
I remember back – back when you were great
I remember when we had fun
Remember when you were the one
There was a meaning in what we did
And there was nothing to be hid
Oh dear friend how have we come to this
Is this what we really had to miss
Things people hide in their basements
Things people hide in their hearts
The TV stays on to fall asleep to
The cables all heat up
And there we lie cold and far apart
Until there’s no more to left to say
Until the eyes see in the dark
And that’s a dreadful way
And I wonder why

I never knew I never knew
What kind of snake were you

Why do we have to change
Why do we kill the child inside
Why do we fall apart
Why is there more said than done
Things we hide in our basements
Things we hide in our heart
The loss is more or less a constant
We knew that from the start
But still I wonder why it’s senseless
To keep one straight fuckin line
Just look into the eyes of someone
And know what lurks inside
Cos when I look into your eyes
The fear and void I see
You know that’s kind of creepy
You know you’re creepin me out
Oh you know

I never knew I never knew
What kind of snake were you
