lyrics

Like two snakes basking in the setting sun
we watch the birds ride the currents where the hills crash down to the sea
shivering, he says, “You’re as cold as ice, check it and see.”
his wry smile flickers elegantly
and I was captured some lifetimes ago
this trickster has a trick in store, as he plunges the knife

Must I lose you?
another search for perfection
next life tragic, next life tragic, always tragedy
plunging, wings almost touch the sea
“Snakey, who you talkin’ to?” he chokes, coughing up blood
no more tricks, stay with me
this trickster plunges the knife, takes his own life
love, he’s willing to sacrifice
our love­, he’s willing to sacrifice
