lyrics

You shimmer like
The poisonous knife
As it goes in
Struck dumb and blind
Spellbound and tied
To your skin

Jesus Christ, I've served my time
And if I had the chance to do it all again
I'd break the chains of you
And I'd break you in

The snake entwines
He's yours and mine
Let him in
The garden black
Marks on your back
Speak of sin

Jesus Christ, I've served my time
And if I had the chance I'd do it all again
I'd break the chains of you
And I'd break you in
