The Snake And The Crown Lyrics

The Snake And The Crown by Raine Maida  

CD  ·  DVD  ·  Sheet music


The Snake And The Crown Today I got to thinking,
The world's in a strange way.
Feel's like I'm in a 7/11,
When a robbery takes place.
Do I hide behind the counter,
With my hands covering my face?
Or do I dive for the gunman?
Before he makes his break?
Does a 45 go off,
Do the bullets ricochet?
This is not some random nightmare,
See, for me, well, this is every day.

I've been waiting for this train to come 'round,
I've been waiting for the deal to go down,
I've been looking for the things not found,
So far, so far away.
I'm just doing my best today.

Cigarettes and alcohol,
And a few minutes to pray.
But it don't do what it used to
So we'll have hell to pay.
A penny for your thoughts?
A penny for my clinches?
I try to get some distance,
I try to escape.
But this nightmare's so persistent
In a Shakespeare kind of way.
Be not afraid...
Well fuck that,
Be very afraid.

I've been waiting for this train to come 'round,
I've been waiting for the deal to go down,
I've been looking for the things not found,
So far, so far away.
I'm just doing my best today.

Who sold you out?
We did, we did.
Who let you down?
We did, we did.
Who put on this crown?
We did, we did.
We did, we did.
We did, we did.
We did, we did.
We did, we did.
We did, we did.
