Serpentine Lyrics

See the dogs come running
Smelling blood now
To an open sore
On the parasite
Countless hearts have fallen
Hard to number
Damnation's whore
Is looking for a victim tonight

With an angry soul
And a wicked design
Your will cannot endure
And your heart is torn away

Chorus:

I was caught up in the moment
We were alone and you seemed to harness the light
Even though I felt cold inside
When you told me it would be alright
I had given up control and
I didn't focus hard enough to see the warning signs
Your heart is serpentine

Damn what I'm becoming
One of them now
Just an opened door
On the endless night
Dark desire burning
In my blood now
How can I be sure
I don't know if I'll be able to fight

With a tortured soul
And an honest design
My will cannot endure
As my heart is torn away

Chorus:

I was caught up in the moment
We were alone and you seemed to harness the light
Even though I felt cold inside
When you told me it would be alright,
I had given up control and,
I didn't focus hard enough to see the warning signs,
Your heart is serpentine,

Now that I've been torn apart,
Will there be an end to this?
Will there finally be release?
Will I finally rest in peace?
I'm determined to believe,
My prayers will be received,

With a tortured soul,
And an honest design,
My will cannot endure,
As my heart is torn away,

Chorus:

I was caught up in the moment,
We were alone and you seemed to harness the light,
Even though I felt cold inside,
When you told me it would be alright,
I had given up control and,
I didn't focus hard enough to see the warning signs,
Your heart is serpentine,

The warning signs,
Your heart is serpentine,
Evil personified,
Your heart is serpentine.

This song describes my ex oh so well! I interpret it about meeting a person and being too blinded by your feelings for them or the way they portray themselves and in the end, they suck away your soul.

I think Brandon has the best of it. It's meant for everyone. It's not a story song, it's a moral song. I'm going through this same thing with someone right now, in fact. Great song though. GJ, Draiman

This song to me is a rebound song, when a relationship ends, and another begins, that person preys on the weaker on, until nothing is left.

dark desire burning, i was caught up in the moment we were alone, with a tortured soul, IMO it sounds like someone who's gay but isn't ready to admit it

I think it means that the singer(who ironically had a bad childhood) was talking about how he was betrayed by the ones he loved, and was left to rust. That's my thought

I was reminded of the legend of Lilith in the Torah, I think it was. The fact that 'My Child' is the next song after this one makes it odd. Lilith was said to kill babies in their sleep.

haha dave was right the first time, its pretty much about a succubus, hes talking about trusting a person mainly a woman and later believing that she can end his pain only to leave him in worse pain.
