My Pet Snake Lyrics

Jenny And Johnny – My Pet Snake Lyrics

I can't sleep these days
And my blues they won't go away
So there are these little pills I've been taking
And my doctor she says that they're safe
But I've been sleeping walking down to the lake
And waking up in the water

And the feelings are
And the snake it bit me when I wasn't awake

Well, I don't believe in double vision
And I don't think that two heads are better than one
And I can see is ouroboros
When my pet snakes are sizing me up

And if you don't believe in destiny
Then take what you're given
You and I got caught between
Magic and business

We walked in on you while you were polishing your knives
(While your eyes were turning green)
Sleeping in a twin bed with a serpent by your side
(Are you trying to compete with me)
Talk a lot of shit, but you would never start a fight
(About killin' me)
God it makes me queasy when you smile
(Smile, through your jealousy)

And I don't believe in suckin' your way to the top
Fingers crossed, you're flipping me off
No, I don't need your supervision
I'll sink this ship if I want

And if you don't believe in chemistry
Then what were we doing
You and I had everything from to ruin

Everytime you come around I have to run and hide
(And your eyes, are they bleedin?)
I get claustrophobic even when I am outside
(Are you trying? Gonna hurt something)
I thought we were brothers man, I thought that we were tight
(But your dog, it's so evil)
Sucking at the venom from your bite
(As you poison me)

Hey dad... hello?

And I don't believe paradise is lost
I say this with my fingers crossed

And if you don't believe in prophesy
This ceremony's finished
You and I tried everything from heroin to Guinness

Two thousand and nine, it was a bastard of a year
(Pass the joint to me)
I can not get stoned no more, I only get the fear
(But these hives, they are killin' me)
We could have it out or we could have another beer
(I could lie, so evil)
All the best of luck with your career
