Serpent's Eyes Copyright 2019
Another week is dragging on
Never used to feel so long
Every night I kneel and pray
Get me through another day
Short harp solo
Barely making what I need
With bills and kids to feed
And politicians on TV
Got the nerve to lecture me

Now up is down, day is night
Bad is good, wrong is right
(I Can't Abide) All the naked lies
" How they moralize
" But I ain't surprised
Lookin' into those serpent's eyes
Don't care how much they spend
Buying votes, rewarding friends
Laws affecting me and you
Don't apply to things they do

Bridge - Chorus - Refrain Refrain
Disagree, they call you names
Pick your pocket while they shake your hand When things go wrong, they shift the blame
Masquerade as the common man They make the rules, control the game
But live like Kings and Queens Hell-bent on keeping things the same
Private jets and limousines

Bridge - Chorus
(line 3/4)
(I can't abide) evil on the rise,
Won't let those fools control my life
