Reptile Lyrics

Reptile - The Church

 

Too dangerous to keep

 

Too feeble to let go

 

And you want to bite the hand

 

Should have stopped this long ago

Go now you've been set free

Another month or so you'll be gorging on me

With your lovely smile

 

I see you slither away with your skin and your tail

Your flickering tongue and your rattling scales

Like a real reptile

 

Had you coiled around my arm

 

How could you ever know

 

How I loved your diamond eyes

 

But that was long ago

Go now you've been set free

Another month or so you'll be gorging on me

With your lovely smile

 

I see you slither away with your skin and your tail

Your flickering tongue and your rattling scales

Like a real reptile

 

And I should have believed Eve

 

She said we had to blow

 

She was the apple of my eye

 

It wasn't long ago

Go now you've been set free

Another month or so you'll be poisoning me

Your lovely smile

 

I see you slither away with your skin and your tail

Your flickering tongue and your rattling scales

Like a real reptile

 

Go now you've been set free

Another month or so you'll be poisoning me

Your lovely smile

 

I see you slither away with your skin and your tail

Your flickering tongue and your rattling scales

 

Like a real reptile
