lyrics

You are a clenched fist sticking stubbornly
out of a mace head made out of snakes head;
I can't see you for the coils.

You want nothing more than to crush your enemies
I'll use you to crush mine instead;
and grow rich from all the spoils.

You're not the bad news you thought you were.

You are desperately writing me into a symphony
so you can have the final say;
while I feel your anger boil.

You are a fruit that grew too ripe for the true
that nourished it, so you punished it;
I can't eat you because you're spoiled.

I can't see you for the coils.

You are climbing a pole and it's out of your control.
You are selling your soul and it's out of your control.
