lyrics

The snake that I love
I took to with skill
I savoured the poison
Administered at will

Fangs deep inside me
They darkened my hide
A new mark is tattooed
“I’m only here for the ride”

Foreseeable future
I will be in the grip of the ride
And you, my love, will find me
In the land of the deaf
the dumb, the blind
or hugging my pillow
using words that you warned me about
fangs deep inside me
you can hear it when I shout

I’m a basilisk rider
I’ll soon be leaving town
Desperation, we’re headed
Low country, but we still go down
