Snake Hill Lyrics

I was born on Snake Hill and that's where I'll probably die
'Cause I don't like to kill but I've got poison in my bite
Well, I feel safe to say
That I should probably stay upon Snake Hill

My mother told me son you've got strychnine in your blood
It comes from pedigree ancestry
She warned me not to leave, said my conscience was too deep
That when I bite it would hurt mostly me

For many, many years well I stayed up on that hill
Occasionally I'd go down to the edge
Just to see what I could see
Soon curiosity got the best of me

And it's a big world and it's not fair to me
To have to stay up when there's so much to see
I wanna play with others that I need to meet
The poison will be poison till it's through

Soon I hit the world I discovered that a girl
Was what my mother tried to hide from me
She could make you feel alive, she could make you wanna die
And that's exactly what she did to me

And it was only self-defense and I coiled up and I bit
I let my venom run into her veins and I sat and watched her die to me

Then I realized I was born on Snake Hill and that's where I'll probably die
'Cause I don't like to kill but I've got poison in my bite
Well, I feel safe to say
That I should probably stay upon Snake Hill

And it's a big world and it's not fair to me
To have to stay when there's so much to see
I wanna play with others that I need to meet
And poison will be poison till it's through

Poison will be poison till it's through
Poison will be poison till it's through
Poison will be poison till it's through
